Hmmm... In the game, you'll start out as some sort of a tourist... Going to some unknown place, but unfortunately, the ship you were in sank to the bottom of the ocean.
Pretty good storyline, I should say. Well, the storyline is nice but aside from that, I don't think it's(the game) that great.
The graphics are pretty good and the people are quite realistic. But to tell the truth, it's still not as good as the other HM games. I really think that the graphics are a bit too... Uhh... Weird... But some characters are undeniably cute. I like the graphics much, but not much:P.
The sounds can get pretty repetitive and unlike some other HM games, you have to bear with it all. Ummm... I have to admit, sometimes the music gets nice, that's when I turn the volume up. But I'm warnin' ya, it can get a bit repetitive. *sigh* aside from it's "repetetiveness" there's no real problem with the sounds..
This is what I hate the most. The gameplay, a.k.a. The use of stylus in the game. That's why I gave up on the game easily... Feels kinda hard to control the tools and items, and the use of stylus is just way too much! I think the only time you can really use your stylus is when you're talking(kidding...).
Hmmm... And most of the time, you need to change from stylus, to control pad. *sigh* talk about tiring...
Oh, it lasts all right.
Last too much! It's so hard to do things, especially because you need to use the stylus. Controlling your character is a bit fun, but sowing and cutting and doing stuff isn't! It's tiring. I'm a BIG HM fan and I have (almost all)the games for Gameboy, GBA and DS but this one is the hardest and the longest to get used to.
Yup, lastability IS super lasting...
Let's see... I think this game is totally UNDER the other games. Well, it is pretty good, I guess, in some points, but I hate using the stylus ALL THE TIME. Like, in Rune Factory you can also use the stylus in farming but you can also choose to use the control pad. Problem is, with this game, you have no option like that. My hand totally hurt after only about half an hour of playing the game. It's really time consuming, and I spent that half an hour not even doing ANYTHING in particular. I was just removing the weeds and it took that time!!! But... I'll say I like the graphics. Quite realistic, but it still can't beat Rune Factory, or the other HM games. I don't really use Action Relays, but I had to buy one because of this game.
My advice: don't buy this game if you don't wanna have arthritis when you grow up. And buy an Action Replay!
Final Score: 64%
