    It has a charm that just draws you into the game

    Harvest Moon is back! After the disappointment of AWL features (No festivals, only three girls, way to easy to make money), this HM comes back with a boatload of new exciting features to satisfy any HM fan, new or old. ... Read Full Review

    This has to be my favorite Harvest Moon game!

    It's time for the Harvest Moon Magical Melody Review! For the Gamecube. Let me just say that I like the Harvest Moon series. It's seemingly simple gameplay disguises the fact that the game is very complex. And this ga... Read Full Review

    Harvest moon, a guilty pleasure.

    Harvest moon is definately a game in which upon look at first sight and read on the back, as well as looking at the age, you think a few things. 1. Why would i play this childish game. 2. I bet the story line is crap. ... Read Full Review

    Harvest Moon: Magical Melody beats all HM Games.

    Harvest Moon: Magical Melody has the most customization I've seen in any HM game. You can pick if your a boy or a girl, upgrade your house, decorate your house, and more. The only downside is the stamina gauge. At times ... Read Full Review

    Harvest Moon fans will lap it up, but that doesn't excuse it being a lazy port of a GameCube game.

    Harvest Moon: Magical Melody on the Wii is actually a GameCube game. Not a GameCube game that's had tons of new Wii-exclusive content added to it, not one that's been overhauled to make decent use of the Wii Remote and i... Read Full Review

    A really dissapointing HM game! :(

    When Harvest Moon: Magical Melody came out, I was excited! I just got my Gamecube and I was ready to play my first Harvest Moon game on it! But after a couple days of playing it, I sold it back and got A Wonderful Life. ... Read Full Review

    The pinnacle of the Harvest Moon series.

    As a long time fan of Harvest Moon, I've developed many opinions about the series. They are mine, and therefore people will disagree and that's O.K. That said, I truly believe this to be the best game in the series. ... Read Full Review
