2.0 out of 5 stars Shame., 28 Aug 2013
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Harvest Moon: The Tale Of Two Towns (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
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.
