Island of Happiness was terrible and the controls were tiring and it was hard to get going good. But Sunshine Islands is more improved and it isn't real watered down from other games! Sunshine Islands has WAY better controls and it seems more easy to make friends. So as far as the graphics go...well it seems copyed right from Island of Happiness but you know. Anyway I like this game it's VERY easy to get addicted!

Pretty good staple for the Harvest Moon series. A little hard to make money though. As a tip sell through the shipping box not through the store because you will get twice as much money using the shipping box.
This is just like any HM game so I'll go straight into what I liked and vica versa.
Good: - Fun at first - Interesting story - Controls work
BAD: - Horrible graphics - Male character looks like a baby - People never change their conversations with you - Farming isn't that fun - Bland characters - Finding the Sun Stones is not fun
And every day consists of (in order) -Water crops -Fish -Find flowers -Mine -Give fish,flowers,and rocks to people so they become happy -Fish -Pick up junk -Sell junk and fish -Go to mines and fall down a hole and "die" -Repeat!
Not a fun game at all! Im a HUGE HM fan and this game was not what I was hoping it was going to be!
