Product Description

Platform: Nintendo DS

Manufacturer's Description

Long ago the towns of Bluebell and Konohana were friendly neighbours, joined together by a tunnel underneath the mountain that separates the towns. Eventually the towns started to disagree with each other on whose town had the best cooking cuisine. As the villagers became more obnoxious with each other, the Harvest Goddess became more annoyed with them. One day she finally put her foot down and collapsed the tunnel between the towns, cutting them off from each other. Now the only interaction the towns have with each other is at their cooking festival, where their cooking conflict continues four times per season.

As a new farmer, you are eager to start your new life at one of the towns but a freak travel accident makes you to forget what town you originally were going to live in! Listen to each mayor‘s story, hear about each town, and then decide where you want to start your new farm life.

Additional features include an all-new storyline involving the player in an ongoing rivalry between two towns, the ability to play as either a boy or a girl, an in-game quest bulletin board system, wireless functionality allowing you to visit friends in-game fields, new in-game activities and more.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a big Harvest Moon fan myself; I really enjoy the aspect of raising my own livestock and growing my own plants, and as I can't do those things in real life, the Harvest Moon games are a great alternative for me. The details of farming are very much simplified, to make the game more fun, and that's part of the charm of the Harvest Moon series.

Many people will say "if you've played one Harvest Moon game, you've played them all". To a certain degree, that's true. They all centre on farming your land and raising your animals, and most enable you to marry one of a selection of premade bachelors/bachelorettes and raise a family. However, this game has differences of gameplay that most other Harvest Moon titles don't have.

The biggest difference in this game is its title feature; there are two towns, instead of one, and you can choose which one you want to live in. Different characters live in each town, but the main difference between the two towns is their specialty. Bluebell Town focuses on raising livestock, Konohana Town focuses on growing crops. You can grow crops and raise livestock in either town, but you have more space to grow crops in Konohana, and more land to raise livestock in Bluebell. And, if you decide you don't like the town you've chosen to live in, or just want a change of scenery, you have the option to move to the other town if you would like to.

There are other differences between this game and most other Harvest Moon games, too. For example, you don't have to grow grass to feed your cows and sheep; they will feed themselves when let outside.

4.0 out of 5 stars Harvest Moon: The Tale Of Two Towns 15 Mar 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS|Verified Purchase
Harvest Moon The Tale Of Two Towns is very different from the other harvest moon games and it can take a while to get used to the different controls for this version. Overall I love this game and like the story line behind it and you can also pick which town you want to live in to focus mainly on livestock or growing crops. The only negative to this version of harvest moon is the graphics as I personally don't find them as good as in the other games and also I do still prefer the original harvest moon for the Ds. However, I would recommend this game to other as there is hours of fun in it.

Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I really want to love this game. I've played Sunshine Island for DS and Animal Parade for the Wii and they are great but this one not so much. The graphics are lovely on this game but the gameplay is tedious. Not the repetitive nature, I don't mind that and if you play games like this you need to get used to that. But just the foraging in the mountains can become annoying after a while. And I really dislike the inventory. Items are stored by how fresh they are and so you can pick up a lot of the same flowers (or other objects) in the mountain and they will take up numerous spaces in your inventory, you can't put them all together and it's really annoying. Depending on where you choose to live (I always choose Bluebell) once you've done the necessary stuff on your farm, you forage in the mountain, end up in the other town talk to a few people, check for requests, go home start again the next day. The prospect of having to go through all the mountain again each day becomes boring. Well you don't have to but once all the farm stuff is done there isn't anything left to do. The nicer thing is if you get pets they get your cattle in for you so you don't have to rush back home for that (once you've trained them of course.

I like how the other characters have flowers next to their names and the higher the friendship the more they bloom, and in the case of bachelors/bachelorettes they change colour, it's really nice.

I'm not keen on the cooking contests, it's ok at first when you have guidance but after that it's harder if you can't find the ingredients. And it's better to compete as the mayors friendship improves better. This game could have been a lot better than it is and it's sad because like I say the graphics are lovely I just don't have the urge to play it and the thought of playing it bores me. And a game shouldn't be like that.

This is a fantastic game. The cooking competition is the most taxing thing about the game because it takes a long time to collect the right items that you need

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 1 Sep 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS|Verified Purchase
I enjoy this game very much even though I haven't been playing it for long. It is the Harvest Moon game I wished they released originally even though the HM: DS is a good game in it's own right. However, this game has amazing art and enthralling game play that makes you forget what is going on around you. The problems I have with this game is that you can only save the game when you go to bed and that the time doesn't stop anymore when you enter a house like it did in the previous versions.
What I love is the fact that you can use the land of your farm which exists in the other town without having to live in that village. The requests are a nice change from just having to work on a farm and makes you feel part of the community more than in the other versions. I also am pleased to discover that if I move from Bluebell to Konohana my animals that I cannot take with me (no more than 4 cows and 2 chickens) will end up in a kind of storage/frozen like state where I cannot access them but I will be able to when/if I move back to Bluebell town. I also like the new added features and surprises that are small in nature but make a big difference to past game play. I would like to mention them but there are just too many to mention. An example of the small features is that you can go on dates with your marriage candidates.
Something I truly recommend Harvest Moon lovers to play :D

Fun game, enjoyable but still doesn't convey real farming. You still don't have to clean up after your animals, but still a fun game.
