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
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.
I can't believe all the bad reviews. I was scared to get it because of all the bad reviews. I don't understand why there are so many bad reviews. I played the hell out of seeds of memories on iPad and I got this game and I'm glad I did. I like it so much better than SOM... I've played about an hour so far and still figuring things out. I know a lot of complaints are recycled characters but those are characters I've always loved so I'm glad to see them in the game. It really is a great game and a lot of fun although pricey. But I for one love the art style and I feel like the graphics look much better then SOM... the ONLY thing I am worried about is the fishing, that seems to be a major issues for all the reviews on here, I'm not at that part yet so I don't know, stardew Valley is a well known game but the fishing is really frustrating on that game too, SOM it was just tap tap tap it was easy to catch fish. I sure hope it's not like stardew valley. I love fishing in these games and I get a lot of income by fishing. Anyways I'm not sorry for my purchase as I am enjoying the game.
