It's not bad, but it's a little dull. I played it for many hours, wanting to see what happens and what I could make happen. The answer is: Not much, on both counts
I haven't played Harvest Moon since the SNES one, and this wasn't the best choice of a modern edition to try out. There's just not much to it, and although I played through 40-something game days worth - and obviously enjoyed it - it just isn't great. There isn't much depth or variety to it
Everyone tells me I should get Magical Melody instead, that that one is the "good one", so I'm going to shoot this one back quickly for that one after just a few days playing, now.
Probably my favorite gamecube game... so addicting

I absolutely love this game soooo much. It is so fun, addicting, entertaining and just amazing! This game is awesome there is a lot to do and usually you don't even have enough time to do all the stuff you want. In the game there are these cutscenes that happen every once in a while and I really enjoy watching them. You get a baby and Husband and get to continue making your farm bigger! Personally I like the Boy version better just because its a little more advance then this one I think. I think this version was made first.... but Yeah. A really great and addicting game!

This Harvest Moon is a female hero version of A Wonderful Life, and there's not a lot of a difference except the appearence and grooms. I love the Harvest Moon series, but I've got a few complaints with this and the male version. It's extremely hard to fish in this game, if you don't hit the button within a half-second of the bite you lose the fish. Theres no place to buy food and restorative items so you'll spend the first few days exhausted. Its hard to find the eggs if you put the chickens in the pasture. The one seed-one plant system. (But I've gotten used to that with Tree of Tranquility and Animal Parade) And the grooms aren't very attractive. The only cute one is Rock. Marlin I suppose is nice in a gloomy way, but Gustafa is a hippy hobo! But if you can find a cheap used copy, check it out.
