This game was ok not the best game I have ever played but fun. Fun for about the first week of play. I think that things just move to slow. You dont get much land in the begining and you wont get any more until about seven hours of play. You cant get any livestock for along time. You dont have many places to explore until again about six hours of play. People who love Harvest Moon, will probable love Innocent Life, but for people who dont probably wont. I was ok with Harvest Moon and also ok with Innocent Life, for me nothing to buy.
I liked the harvest moon games quite a bit like games like that in general. But I could not get into this at the very start. One big factor is knowing you arn't even really human, your a robot pretty much. Although I will say that your guy can level up his human skills including "love", it just went from bad to worse when I saw what your starting farming area was. I liked the cozy little farmhouse you got in the other harvest moon games, but instead you get "ruins" as your home. The atmosphere just did not agree with me. Rent this before you buy, it will help you save money.
