I'm pretty sure that this is the most minimal of all Harvest Moon games. You're forced to be in it for the farming on this one, and even that has some hitches: very few crops to select from, a time cycle that is far too short, and some other blemishes. One coming to mind is that giving the Harvest Sprites your tools in order to upgrade them renders them un-usable for large stretches of real time. If you're down for a Harvest Moon experience boiled to its core, this could be your thing, but I'd recommend the SNES iteration over this one any day, and even the second Gameboy Color Harvest Moon game.
