Like its predecessors, Harvest Moon: A New Beginning is a slow-paced yet incredibly deep game that yields rich rewards for players who are willing to invest the time. Veterans of the Harvest Moon series will appreciate the ability to put their own personal stamp on the town and their character's appearance. Relationships are more sophisticated, too -- spouses prepare meals and even help out with chores on the farm. The game is a polished and an enjoyable starting point for people who are new to the series as well.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
