Wii gamers can revisit pastoral farm life as a young boy or girl in this entry in the unconventional Harvest Moon role-playing series. The storyline finds the benevolent harvest goddess transformed into stone, but it is rumored that 100 musical notes will break the curse. Yet in order to collect the notes, players must fulfill a number of farm-related objectives, from shipping out goods and creating recipes to taming wild animals and winning festivals. The play style is otherwise the same as previous Harvest Moon titles, as players plant various crops, raise and care for livestock, participate in special events and mini-games, and more. New twists to the series include a rival farmer to compete with on a daily basis, the ability to marry one of ten prospective suitors, and the option to expand the farm by purchasing new plots of land. Four-player support is also available in many of the competitive events, ranging from horse races to fishing derbies. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
