    Back when I had the Gamecube, a friend of mine had picked up this game. One time while I was over I saw it, and we put it into the Gamecube to play it. Once we started playing it I was hooked, me and my friend would pla... Read Full Review

    A game not to be underestimated!!

    From first glance, one would take a look at Harvest Moon would toss it aside for another worthwhile RPG. I used to be like that as well. Playing the game changes everything. Though it is pure farming and lacks a "save th... Read Full Review

    Possibly the best Harvest Moon in the series. If only the newer games were of this level.

    WOO! I'm a pretty big fan of this series and definitely enjoy it a lot. It makes for some really relaxing fun. I don't even know where to start... Now, Harvest Moon definitely won't appease everyone's appetites, but t... Read Full Review

    Harvest Moon is less of a game than an addiction: you don't know why you want it, you just can't quit.

    Pros: Ridiculously addicting, yet laid back gameplay; Interesting time passage elements; Plenty of the series' typical small diversions Cons: Much more limited than other entries in the series; Fairly weak presentatio... Read Full Review

    One of the best games ever made

    By now I'm probably the only person who plays gamecube games and that's a shame to people who haven't played this game. Everything the developers did was phenomenal! The graphics were really nice looking crystal clear 24... Read Full Review
