Behind the occasional poor performance is one of the more in depth farming sims out there with a new crafting system to make every resource feel valuable. Some of the minigames feel a bit pointless and distract from the addictive routine you find yourself in. The characters aren't as endearing as some of the previous SoS/Harvest Moon games and the lack of acknowledgement of your relationship by the characters you romance leaves you feeling like the relationship is only actually happening in cutscenes.
Outside of some of the gripes though the moment to moment routine of the game is very in depth and addicting and probably the most refined version of the farming sim formula.
