Out of the harvest moon games that I have played, this is not my favorite. Yet, it is not my least favorite either. You have pretty much the same characters as in Harvest moon A Wonderful Life. Though you are a girl now. And of course there is one new bachelor, besides those from Mineral town. (That is if you have the game boy game Harvest moon Friends of Mineral Town.) Sometimes the bachelors will visit for a season, making it very difficult to court them.
Usually when I play a harvest moon game, there are always one or two bachelors that stand out to me. In this game, however, I do not have any that I really like. I know a lot of player love Skye but I am not a fan of him. Also, winning people over in this game is much harder than other harvest moon games. At least from what I can tell.
The farm aspect is very good. You have a variety to choose from at start of the game. I love that in most seasons there are the crops that regrow every couple of days. :D Yet, it is still hard to make money.
An interesting side of farm in this game is that you have have 7, I think, Barns and Coops. It is your choice how much of each you want. Also it is both a pro and a con that when you build the buildings you can make them out of different materials. Some are stronger and others weaker. This means that you do not have to save a ton of money to build. However, if you build weaker materials then you risk loosing all your animals.
Over all the game is pretty good. I will always be a huge fan of harvest moon games. If you are a fan, you really can't go wrong with this game. Just be ready to keep it for a while if you want the full experience. And be patient.

This was a lot more 'old school' than I had expected - the game menus were very simple and boring, and somewhat tough to figure out. The graphics left you wanting more, which is kind of surprising considering the game only came out in 2008.
Aesthetics aside, there's plenty of fun farming to be had! There are several crops for different seasons, you get to raise animals, make friends... everything you'd expect from Harvest Moon.
This game was pretty fun but I've sent it back so I can play one of the newer versions.

OMG! SKYE SKYE SKYE SKYE! new hubbby~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~! And he's mysterious and flirty. I knew i was gonna marry him in the first sentence of his i read. Like this is so cool cause you get to choose between two appearances. Either the blondie of mfomt of the brunette off another wonderful life. ANDDDDDDDDDDDDDD All the boys from both games are on there. So you cliff, kai, rock, and gray lovers are treated too!!!!! AND you get to actually like BRUSH your cows and stuff. ITS OMG AWESOME!! THE only problem I have with the game is that you cant design your house (well u get to choose wallpaper and flooring) I mean like the furniture. The best game eva would be a combonation of Animal Crossing and Harvest moon. This is my second favorite game, my first is A wonderful life, but in that game after i got all my makers, got married, got rich and stuff i lost intrest. This game however, I did not. I STRONGLY recommend this game. FABULICIOUS
