Gamespot: Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness Review

It was over 10 years ago that the first Harvest Moon game came out on the SNES, and in keeping with the series' sports-game-like longevity, Natsume is releasing two new Harvest Moon games this month, Island of Happiness for the DS and Tree of Tranquility for the Wii. On the DS, you get classic Harvest Moon gameplay on the go--and controls so slippery, it feels like you've replaced the stylus with a stick of butter. Rest assured, the same dependable farming sim is here, but the awful controls make it hard to enjoy.

The Good:
* Same old dependable Harvest Moon gameplay
* Plenty of chores to keep you busy for hours.

The Bad:
* Touch-screen-only controls ruin the fun
* Stiff character animation.

Lol, I don't care, it's a buy for me anyways, unless I can't do anything at all with the stylus.
