Excellent idea, horrible execution.

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.

I like how after several Harvest Moon games providing nothing but the same over and over, they're trying to spice it up, but this was a failed attempt in my opinion.

It's kind of exciting at first if you've played other Harvest Moons because you think of all the exciting things they could do with the "futuristic" Harvest Moon. However, the potential wasn't met and the game is extremely repetitive without the additional depth that other Harvest Moons have.

That being said, it's not the worst game I've ever played, and not the worst Harvest Moon ever made. It's simply unremarkable and not particularly worth the time required to get far into the game.
