Harvest Moon is one of the best franchises to exist in the gaming world. However, Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility did not meet my expectations. The game looked great! The graphics were smooth and the storyline seemed solid. The problem I had with it were the controls. You can use the Wii-mote, classic controller, and perhaps the Gamecube controller. Here's the thing. When you are trying do anything in the fields, it's extremely difficult to do things like water your seeds and plants. It was impossible to target it properly. I kept on watering the ground to the left or right of what I was aiming for. I think that if the controls were a bit better, this game could've had some real potential. The things I liked about the game were the story and the fact that you could continue to run your farm as your child later in the game. That was neat. All in all, this game is great for people who love loose controls but it is definitely not the best Harvest Moon. Back to Nature for the PS1 is the best Harvest Moon title. Hopefully I helped you all out. Thanks!

Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility is like one of those twenty-dollar games you buy on Shockwave or BigFish Games(not that I have anything against them!). You'll be hooked for a few days, or weeks. But after that you just won't want to look at it. Ever.

I had played Harvest Moon on the Nintendo 64 and loved it in the same manner and thought it was a good way to kill some time and, frankly, procrastinate. (incidentally, that's what I'm doing now) So I got the game shortly after release and got to the point in the game where it starts getting tiring. Watering the plants, feeding the silkworms (letting the rest of the animals outside of course) and picking up the eggs...turning them into nice mayo. Milking the cow. It just seemed like...well. Chores. Sometimes I'd skip all that and go get ingredients for recipies.
But honestly, after the first rainbow there wasn't much reason to continue. It seemed as if there was nothing else the game could offer me. I had three plots and tons of crops. It just wasn't fun anymore.

In short, rent the game for sure, but don't buy it. You'll get bored after a while. That's why my rating of the game is a 7; in other words. A big fat meh.

This game is really good. If you have played Harvest Moon before you will like this game. If you have never played it you will like it. You start out in a town and the mayor asks you questions. You stay at a farm till the mayor finishes your house. While you are at the farm they show you how to harvest crops. You get your house and can get animals. It is really fun!! Rent it!!
