After renting this it wasn't exactly what I expected. I don't like the camera view in the game it's almost a third person up in the air camera. It's difficult getting money and I really dislike the whole stamina deal, but it's fun. I had to restart my game because I didn't do it correctly. Currently I am on Summer, day 1, Year 1, with the Red, Yellow, Blue, and working on the Green bell. I have to use Walkthroughs to know what to do next. What is most annoying is the rate you get hearts in this game. Throughout Spring I only got 2 hearts with my potential marriage girl, mind you there is 28 days in Spring on this game, and this was with going to her area everyday, giving her good gifts, talking to her, and using a second Wii remote over her to increase heart speed. I still give it a 9 though. If you're looking for a new type of Harvest Moon game, you should definitely rent this! And if you need some help, here's a site on the people, marriage, walkthroughs, kids, etc.
