Old school meets new interface

If you were a fan of the SNES version of Harvest Moon, this game is like a breath of fresh air. The town is basically like A Wonderful Life (so if you liked those characters, you'll love these guys), except there's actually things to do. They took their tool system and made the upgrades meaningful, rather than up to luck and barely better, as in AWL. The general inferface is refined, if not a little unintuative. But the part of the game that really shines is the breadth of activities that you can do. You have plots of land over the whole town you can use to plant crops or trees, you can choose the most strategic location to put your animal barns (and the best building material), or you can just go up to the mines and dig for ore. Not to mention you can go after almost every lady in the game.

If you're a fan of any Harvest Moon game, you'll be addicted to this one.

Best hand held version yet

This game I can honestly tell you I thought was going to be bad. If you play any of the console versions of this game then the hand held version usually are pretty lame for you. I checked it out just to make sure and I was very pleasantly surprised. It was great. If you have played "A Wonderful Life" you will see a lot of similarities as far as game play. They have added lots of things and made it a truly playable hand held. I am very impressed. I have purchased this game and will be playing it happily.

I really enjoyed playing until it started locking up left and right. Its really annoying, I really hope the new ones coming out dont have this problem.
