Constant Crashing and Terrible Loading Times

I’ve been a HUGE harvest moon fan from the moment I popped in the GameCube disc for A Wonderful Life. However, I’m greatly disappoint in this new game. The graphics are wonderful, there are a lot of new challenges with crops as far as terrain, and I LOVE that your mine progress gets saved every 5 floors. I am truly tired of being in constant fear of the game crashing. I am tired of putting in the time to complete quests in the storyline multiple times, for a glitch and crash. Also, why such long loading times? It reminds me of the PlayStation 2 version of A Wonderful Life (the only game I played but didn’t finish because of the loading). If this game was free, I wouldn’t gripe, but I did and I’m quite upset. Please address and fix these bug issues. It’s clear I’m not the only one annoyed with this.

Too Many Issues

I’m a huge Harvest Moon fan, I have every game on every platform they have come out with and have never been disappointed until now. I love this game but I’m ready to give up on it and really feel like I should be given a refund because the game constantly crashes I save it after everything I do but it is really but you can’t save the game in the mines and it is really annoying to spend the day in the mine collecting what should be a huge payday and have the game crash as soon as you exit the mine before you can save your progress. Also my quests from villagers will not work, I have the required items, I have tried everything I can think of and tried looking online for a solution to my problem but I am not able to complete quests. The game glitches out often and gets stuck not allowing me to move at all. I really feel like this game is a very sad representation of the amazing games I know this developer can put out and the fact that they have not fixed these issues and it’s basically been forgotten but they are still charging $15 for this problematic game. They lost a lot of respect from one of their hugest fans. I strongly advise against purchasing this game unless they come out with a new update and will be contacting apple to suggest having it removed from the App Store because these issues have not been addresses and from the comments of other players you can see it’s been an issue for a very long time.

Too many issues

The weather destruction on crops you grow is extremely annoying. Especially when you are growing a special crop that are seeds that came from request gift. Too many destroyed to make you keep farming. I plan to switch to orchards. Mining is super irritating with touch screens. Not consistent with Fishing is not really possible. Even with bait. Why make a game that frustrating? The point of games is to have fun, not get mad. Please fix. The sprites are cute, but get in the way constantly even if you give them gifts, and too many movies! Thank you fixing the crashes, particularly during mining! Loading screens are too long, longer than it should be for a saved game. There needs to be more explanation on the requests, because you need to use mailbox to view it first, not just use the menu. If you do not view from mailbox then you cannot give item to person requesting it. Personally too many requests for me. Very frustrating until you figure it out. The bookshelf is not even needed other than hours of shops. I could keep going with fixes suggested...but i think you get it, just the game is more irritating than fun! I have always liked this series but you are losing fans. One thing that you have gotten perfect is the growing of crops and trees. Easy. Characters are usual ones from previous games, wish more suitors for girl but overall improvements made on previous games. Thank you.
