This game was a vast improvement on some other DS titles, the story is fun they didn't try to over play the touch screen, and with added requests, collections, contests, and festivals it feels like there is more to do than just grow and sell.
The 3D effect in this game is very unimpressive, I realize this game was built for the DS and the 3D was an after thought, but you could really tell the 3D was just that, an afterthought.
However this was an excellent Harvest Moon game and any fan of the series would be thrilled to add this to their collection.
The Tale of Two Towns is the first HM title available for the 3DS It still has the same great harvest moon gameplay but with big disappointments. You live in either Blubell or konohanna which is basically like saying Animals or Crops the goal is to enter each festival in order for the mayors to like eachother and open up the tunnel which includes instant travel to each town. The friendship portion is confusing and more repetitive than ever you really need to look things up because the game won't tell you anything that's informative at all on how to do any of this strangely theres a 30 minute tutorial on everything you know but dosnt include things you dont know. Getting items from the shop is even more of a let down its usually limited at atleast 3 items or so and everyday its random no catalogs or anything just walk in and hope what you need is for sell. The animals are limited to an unknown gender except cows which seem to always be females for some weird reason. When living on one of the two farms you are given the style for what town you chose if you chose konohana or move there you get plenty of space for crops and less space for animals but Bluebell is vice versa. Although it still includes as always great chracters, endless gameplay, and that Harvest Moon Addiction its worth a buy just for that (Although, I'd say not for full price) Disappinting but still Harvest Moon.
