    Proves that games can be enjoyable without violence, reference to drugs, crude humor. Innocent and fun.

    A different and catchy installment to Natsume's Harvest Moon series, this Playstation2 game is almost a perfect blend of friendship, wildlife, and simulation farming. Being a Harvest Moon fan since the Back To Nature ... Read Full Review
