Pros I LOVE THIS GAME!!! It's better than Animal Crossing! You just can't put the thing down!
Cons It's gonna take YEARS in this game before you'll win one of the bachelor's hearts. (This means the heart that always appears on their chest when you talk to them takes a while to go from coal-black to ripe-red.)
Summary This game is great for pretty much all ages. It's just so addicting! When I play it, I can never put it down! You probably think, "How much fun's a FARMING game gonna be?" Well, lemme tell ya, it's gonna be a LOT of fun. You can do pretty much anything with your day. An hour in "Mineral Town" is 1 minute in real life, so plan it carefully as you go. Most stores are open until 4PM (that's right. It's not all about planting crops and milking cows in this game.) and are usually all closed on Sundays. When you first begin the game--no, I won't give it all away. You'll have to buy the game and check it out for yourself.
By the way, Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town is almost EXACTLY like Harvest Moon: MORE Friends of Mineral Town, except it's flip-flopped so that you're a boy trying to win a girl's heart....And also taking care of your farm. So...don't be afraid to get that game version. Yeah.... You'll like it! I won't make any promises, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
