Boring - A Very Basic Game,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Farm Life (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
This is the type of game you keep playing because you are sure things will get better having just spent over £20 on it. Having played it on 6 short train journeys (well there was nothing else to do) I have had enough.
There is a severe lack of depth and flexibility. You basically have to follow a set of rules but you are not really given the chance to break the rules either. For example you can plough a field that you have just planted with seeds and it will not affect it. It is not possible to release any animals from their barns and the same cow gets sick every time. You cannot get off your tractor unless you take it to the garage.
You cannot turn the music off. The instructions are quite difficult to follow.
Thinking that something must be good I decided to try the two player element where you can visit another player's farm - what a waste of time. You can walk around their farm, which looks a lot like your own - not surprising with the lack of content I guess.
I would not recommend this game to anybody. Harvest Moon was better, and I beleive there is a new version of that coming out soon. Don't waste your money on this game.
