Harvest Moon DS review

  • Seeing your farm prosper
  • The informative lower screen
  • The long list of activities
  • Graphics barely fit for GBA
  • The stylus being ignored
  • Talking to boring NPCs

It takes advantage of the platform's technology like a laptop bought for Windows solitaire, but Harvest Moon DS still manages to be a decent game. If players focus on what it is rather than what it could have been, there's a good chance you'll be entertained. That's easier said than done, though, and the lack of innovation may even cause current series fans to refuse to send their old version to the glue factory. But, if cutesy farming RPG makes you raise an inquisitive eyebrow rather than gag, Harvest Moon DS may be worth cultivating.
