The game is very simple. It doesn't seem all that futuristic except for having machines and robots. It is easy to earn money and buy things. I liked the buggy and the little railway you can get. I had the battlebot water my plants, so I could do the harvesting and planting.
Some of the controls are extremely tedious. You can only buy seeds 9 at a time, and watch the messages that come along with them over and over and over. Breaking rocks to get resources is the same, messages over and over and over.
Simple isn't necessarily a bad thing. It can be nice to play without stress. Cutting down on more of the tediousness could have made it more of reward to keep going.
Well, personally I think the game is pretty good! Great graphics, I love the whole futuristic theme, and I like how they kept the same concept. What I don't like about the game though is that first of all, you don't get married or have a child at all. Personally, that was my favorite part. Yes, I know I'm lame. And second of all, I really don't like how they don't let you be a girl. I, myself, am a girl. I'm okay with playing as a guy, but still. And third of all, it's just not as fun as the other games. I admit, this game is still really good but I reccomend the other harvest moon games better like Animal Parade and Magical Melody. Check those out first(:
I'm a rather large fan of the harvest moon series, I've always enjoyed it, no idea why.
This game was no different in the beginning, I enjoyed planting, harvesting, and then I began to notice alot of rather large issues with the game.
For example, if you miss any event in the game, you will need to restart the file, because you cannot get it back.
For example, I missed a tool necessary for winter, I can no longer get this tool because I am one day too far ahead. I can no longer farm in winter, meaning I will literally have to sleep through every day of winter, every 7th day I Have to walk to town, stand in a portal, come back, then sleep for 6 more days.
The cooking system provides absolutely no benefit or interesting aspect to the game. If you choose to cook, your cooking level will go up, nothing else. If you don't choose to cook, you won't miss out on anything.
If you want to farm livestock, you must spend a good 2 hours acquiring all the items you need to raise them.
All other Harvest moon games have given me some sort of sense of reward for accomplishing what I did, in this game I just feel like I wasted time and gained nothing.
I wouldn't even give this game a try, because I thoroughly enjoyed it for 1 day, meaning the other 2 days I tried to enjoy it just made the game even less enjoyable.
