Harvest Moon Light of Hope Special Edition  

 

Natsume seems to be in a death spiral lately. Their PR and Marketing folks failed us yet again. They have moved the Harvest Moon franchise even farther away from families in Harvest Moon Light of Hope Special Edition. The ESRB could find no descriptors for all of the bad content making many of us question if this is part of the corruption in the video game industry. This is one of the worst Harvest Moon video games I have ever played.

Harvest Moon Light of Hope Special Edition has sub-par graphics, harvest sprites, gem spirit, harvest false goddess, lack of attire, enticement to lust, witch, mage, magic, and more. The running animation in Harvest Moon Light of Hope Special Edition looks wrong. Harvest Moon Light of Hope Special Edition feels like an app port.

A storm messed up and island and it is up to us to fix it. How do we fix it? We collect resources, and earn money to repair all of the damaged stuff. This includes buildings, bridges, wells, and more. Harvest Moon games start slow and build up speed pretty quickly. Harvest Moon Light of Hope Special Edition stays slow much longer. Why? We have to waste so much money repairing things. We never know who or what it will unlock. There is little guidance in the quests either.

The music in Harvest Moon Light of Hope Special Edition is nice to listen to. I wish we could skip the annoying tutorial in Harvest Moon Light of Hope Special Edition. The poor graphics make it hard to target where to dig, plant, water, etc. Hearts go away quickly meaning we get little done each day. Harvest Moon Light of Hope Special Edition can be addicting as we want to get some more money to repair the next thing.

I wish the occult content had been left out of Harvest Moon Light of Hope Special Edition. The same goes for promoting the Gaia religious belief. We need a Christian version of Harvest Moon with a pastor/priest and church. Maybe someone out there can make that happen. If I had the money I would.
