Harvest Moon: A New Beginning
My new favorite of the series.
I've been playing for almost 2 weeks now and this is by far my favorite of the series. My previous favorite was HM 64 but I don't think I could ever go back to that now after playing this one. The last Harvest Moon I played was a wonderful life on the Gamecube and although I did play that one quite a bit, it was ultimately a disappointing entry for me. A new beginning is back to the basics on steroids as you can plant far more crops and care for many different animals while adding a whole new addicting element in being able to customize the whole town. As you earn money and progress you will be able to purchase and scavenge for building materials to add more houses, shops, roads and decoration items. You are given a set of objects that you need to build around town in order to move on to the next list, advancing certain story elements and unlocking new items or areas as you go. Highly recommend this to anyone who liked harvest moon games before but thought something was missing, cause it might have found it.
Nice and relaxing.
This game is pretty much the best harvest moon I've played. It is a wonderful thing to have such a game in a world with soooo much shoot em ups and hack&slash games. When you need a chill gaming experience, harvest moon and games like it are the way to go. This game is beautifully done with the things you remember about harvest moon games. I'd love my resident evils and my first person shooters but this is truly a beautifully done game.
What an amazing game!
Harvest Moon: A New Beginning is one of the best games I have played. It is very fun and the Gameplay is great. Anyone who loves Animal Crossing will enjoy this game. I recommend it to any gamer who wants to be impressed!
new for me
i have never played a harvest moon game in my life. this is first one ever. i would have to say it was right choice to play. good great.
Not a bad game, but not excellent
You should have enough patient to play it, but it is interesting to build different building by yourself. The biggest disadvantage is its graphic. Er, trees are looked fake, and roles are distorted
Best Harvest Moon yet!
this game is my favorite harvest moon yet the graphics are great and you can customize your character now and the bachelors and bacheloretts are great my only complaint is that there are no marriage rivals well not that I know of :( they are one of the best parts of harvest moon games. but with that aside it is a great game and I love it
A must have for 3DS owners
A great game for those that loved the ones before it. The game is a big step up over the 3DS port of the previous title, Tale of Two Towns, that was a DS game with a flawed mini game added (would cause memory leak errors in your 3DS, causing crashes that would make you lose all unsaved progress because of the "only saving at the end of the day" system). I love that they kept all the core game play consistent with the older titles, but with minor changes (like plots of land being set in one size of 2x4). Over time, you gain the ability to completely customize your farm to where you place fencing and even later in the game you can remake the whole town. It's a wonderful game with a long play time and it makes me glad to own a 3DS. The only thing I would of liked to see added would be voice acting or at least Japanese voicing with subtitles.
Customization is King
So having heard about this game WAAAAY before GameStop workers did, I eagerly stalked the GameStop webpage so that I could jump in and reserve the game. As soon as the game popped up for reserve, it was reserved and I waited patiently for it to be released. Release day finally arrived and I eagerly popped my game into my 3DS and started playing. Initially, the game play is really slow and the tutorials while helpful for learning the new controls are rather tedious. Users are able to customize everything from hair color and style to clothing. Few choices are available at the start of the game for hair and clothing, but as you progress forward in the game more choices for customization are unlocked. This game has become one of the best of the Harvest Moon series of games and continues to surprise me with their new tools and ways of foraging. I also enjoy the dating aspect of the game. Now the player (male or female) can choose to enter into a relationship with a potential spouse before they decide to marry them or break up. This game is great for casual gamers such as myself who don't have a lot of time to devote to gaming, but are still able to enjoy the story aspect of the game. I fully recommend this game for ALL Harvest Moon fans. It is the most enjoyable game since the Rune Factory Series and it has revolutionized the Harvest Moon Series in new and exciting ways.
The beat harvest moon game to date!
This game has everything that makes harvest moon great. It lets you customize everything-except for cosmetic appearance of the houses.
If you've played any other Harvest Moon game or games, like me, this one's going to knock them out of the park! It's extremely fun and addictive. I like how you finally get to choose how your character looks like. There's a lot of new features I enjoy in this Harvest moon game, like being able to customize you and the town! The game is totally new, but has that nice Harvest moon feel to it. I highly recommend getting it! My guy looks awesome :D and I haven't been stop playing it since I got it.
