Story Of Seasons Review



Story of Seasons, one of the game in the Harvest Moon series, typical original Harvest Moon game with a twist.  By typical, I meant the dreading hours you spent on the game half asleep, doing repetitive actions : Water, Fertilize, Harvest, Brush, Milk, Clip, Feed, Give gifts.
Yes, you still have to do these as much as you wish it would be much easier.
I would say, money is easier to get now with the 3 x 3 squares rather than the 1 square at a time harvesting. Therefore, your profit would be 9 times your 1 square typical Harvest Moon plot.
 However, of course, the difficulty would be much harder. 
Even the game mocks you with a 30 years in game trophy to unlock.


The storyline of Story of Seasons is basically........unlocking all the vendors.
Want to know how to unlock them?
Ship 1 million G worth of shippings which is no longer through shipping box but through the vendors and.......voila~ 5 vendors for you to ship to~
However, this is where the game really starts.
Unlocking the other two, while not too hard, is tedious
100 tools, 500 seeds, 15,000 farm products, 15,000 cooked recipes, 10,000 processed goods, 600 clothes,100 fences, 200 decorations, 200 garden objects, 100 streets, 100 furniture, and 100 wallpaper/flooring

(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

The game expects you to earn lots of money and this can be seen through:
-The cost of getting a bigger bag
-Obviously, unlocking the vendors
- 1 000 000 G donation option for Fireworks festival
- Crazy amount of lumber needed (Seed x Time = Money?!?!)


Through all these hardships, you have all these adorable NPCs along with you 
and also fellows farmers who just have to see how you snatch their rental plots away from them
*Cheers for Lutz*
 Because the bachelors and bachelorettes are too busy waiting for someone to propose,
you can look at their details here :
 
 
 Of course, other than your plants and npcs, lets not forget 
about our farm animals (& the safari animals)
who love you more than those npcs like this monster looking chick


 In case you couldn't see it clearly, I cropped the chick out.
 I'm sure I've seen that face before.....somewhere
So my chicks started having names like, Yeti, Slendy & Nessie.

Now, lets talk about customisation. Having build a Sewing Studio,
you can start making accessories, clothes and OP money making golden flax cloth 

No matter what gender you choose, you can look like the other gender.
Meaning, you can wear male clothing as a girl and female clothing like as a guy
So now, you can fulfill your BxB or GxG fantasies in Harvest Moon
while still being able to have children.

And the above is my review for Story of Seasons.

 

And yes, lets not forget the hypnotizing music and the clingy horse.
Play it and you know what I mean.
Learn more about the game from the official website:

And buy it after you finish reading this sentence.
You know you want it.
