|Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life expands on the farm simulation aspects of its predecessors by having players develop a "life" through marriage and raising a family. Farming in this GameCube version is further enhanced by having more animals to care for, more crops to harvest, and an option for players to create hybrid vegetables by combining the seeds of two different types. As in earlier titles in Natsume's Harvest Moon series, players are not confined to a rigid storyline or plot while advancing through the game. Players are free to do whatever they want in the effort to become successful in both business and in life. |
This PS2 "Special Edition" of A Wonderful Life adds to the GameCube original by allowing players to earn the chance to play as either a boy or a girl, and by providing more potential spouses for courtship. It also allows players to continue to work and develop their farms, even after they've completed the main campaign.

Harvest Moon A Wonderful Life SE has got to be the best game I have ever come across to teach and learn about the values of life in all aspects. Everyone from ages 60 on down I know for a fact will love this game. It teaches the values of hard work, friendships, love and rewards. My whole family from 59 year old husband, 50 year old me and 25 - 26 year old children have never worked so hard in their loves to try to have something as we all have in this game. It teaches morals as well. Be kind to others, teaches the vaule of a dollar. It teaches responsibility for animals and family, friends and yourself as well. Teaches spending habits and investments. We have found that this game is one that we have even applied to our daily lives as well. Child raising, martial relationships, and the way life is in the real world. Even grandparents can relate to this because it is about life the way it use to be. Even to the end you have to deal with reality all the way. Every person ought to play this game and just see that life is hard work and in the end you truly reap what you sow!
You will need to drop by GameSpot.com to get some of the hints and guides to help you along.
We even started having a family night where my older children would just sit and watch other play and everyone would chip in and help the player out.
What crops to plants? When to plant them. Feeding and caring for animals. Buying and selling to the outside market. Fishing for food and profits. Raising and producing your own hard earned crops for family as well as sales. Even learning to cook what is good for you or not.
Perfect game for all ages and one of the safe ones for your children as well. I have to rate this as a number one game because it is life as it should and has been.
Expose your children and young & old adults to reality and bring back some true values in the games and life as well.
I absolutely loved this game. I think it's just adorable for anyone of any age that loves simulation/roleplaying games. You have to learn how to really take care of a farm and a family and manage your time so you can get everything done in a day. It can be quite challenging to come up with ways to make the most money, and to find a potential bride. There is even a way to get to choose to have a son or a daughter. Plus you get to snuggle the animals to make them happy! It's just plain cute.
I enjoyed "Save the Homeland" edition more. I was hoping this would be just the same, but with more perks, like getting married, having children and more interactions with the village. However, it's just not what I expected. Game time is slow (not such a big deal) and the interactions are not as cool as the description explains. I feel that Save the Homeland had better side games as well. this one has many, but they are mediocre compared to the other one I played. On the othre hand, I haven;t played every Harvest Moon game that has come out, and I may have not played it correctly.
Playing this game is fun, but they did a poor job adapting this game for the ps2. IT lags slightly when you walk, and any time you enter a building or open a menu like your inventory, it opens a "Loading Now..." page. They commands are annoyingly huge in the corner, but you can remove them if you'd like, but you can only do that once you have all the commands memorized. On the plus side, this game is just like an improved version of the gamecube game. It's like they combined, "Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life" with, "Harvest Moon: Another Wonderful Life" to make this game. For example, you can now see the ap, st, and sp on your character by looking at his diary, and you can also train your dog. How you come to take care of the farm is also different than either of the game cube games.
So I'd say, if you're like me' and have a lot of patience with games that lag, this game is loads of fun. If you, however, get angry over the slightest things on a game, put this one down and go for either of the gamecube counterparts.
This game is fantastic! It's great for all ages and it teaches you responsibility with in the game. You get to care for your animals, make friends with the towns people, find love and raise a child. If you like the Sims you'll like this game. Except this game is more of the country life style then the city compaired to the Sims. You can find tons of cheats on the web just go to google.com and type in Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life ps2 cheats and you will be able to find out the secrets of being able to choose your gender of your child, how to get free stuff, how to get more money and how to tell if the towns people are your friends or not. I give this game two thumbs up, its a must buy.
