Harvest Moon first hit the United States a full decade ago on the SNES, giving gamers an entertaining and decidedly different experience from games at the time. Since then the series has evolved slowly, with small additions making for a more complete package. Consequently, despite the unique opportunities of the system Harvest Moon DS just doesn't feel that much different then Friends of Mineral Town on the GBA.
