I rented An Innocent Life with the notion that the game
would as enjoyable as past HM games. After reading
reviews from gamers, and viewing screen shots, I went
ahead and rented the game. After a long introduction,
this went on for 15 minutes, what did I get myself into?
Yes, the graphics and music are superb, but the fact that
you can't get married and the main character is a robot
really turned me off. This game is set in the future, it's
a futuristic world unlike the past HM games. There is no real ending, no goals, everything is just so boring
and bland. I returned the game the next day, it just
wasn't what I expected from a HM game.
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(:
