Harvest Moon Light of Hope Review Is It Really Not Good?

Many say that Harvest Moon Light of Hope disappointed many fans. In terms of appearance, it is quite different from the previous series. Harvest Moon Games which was released on several platforms such as PS4, Switch, PC, and Android or iOS comes with graphics with a new style.

Harvest Moon Light of Hope

Harvest Moon Light of Hope tries to display 3D and 2D graphics, although previously Harvest Moon has used a combined 3D and 2D graphic style. However, what distinguishes the Light of Hope series is the characters that appear in a 3D style. In our opinion, it seems that Natsume and Tabotto want to make this game friendly to the mobile platform.

Junebe those of you who want to reminisce with Harvest Moon will be a bit disappointed with Light of Hope, especially in terms of its gameplay. As we know Harvest Moon is one of the most successful games of the first PlayStation. Before you try, you can follow the Buddygame article on this occasion. Curious?

Then, you will be stranded in a city destroyed by a storm. But strangely, you as a stranger who has just arrived in the city is tasked with repairing all the damage caused by the storm. After that, you will find a broken lighthouse that is no longer in use. Here you have to collect the mysterious stone that is used to turn on the broken lighthouse.

In terms of story, Light of Hope has a generic and not very interesting storyline. At the beginning of the game you will be provided with an ax, hammer, fishing rod, and also a knife that is useful for picking up useful materials later. In addition to these materials, you can get money for your needs which can be obtained by helping the residents.

The townspeople give you an empty land for gardening and a place to live. In terms of gameplay, Harvest Moon Light of Hope doesn’t have much difference from its predecessor series. The formula that Natsume gave remained the same. You are allowed to build houses, plantations, and farms.

Just like with Harvest Moon that you’ve played on PlayStation, you can find your soul mate and marry him and then give birth to your offspring. Each character that you can marry has a different character.

Mobile Game Graphics For The Latest Generation Of Consoles

Natsume seems to want to give a fresh look to his Harvest Moon game this time. As you explained earlier that Light of Hope comes with 3D animated graphics with a 3D background. This graphic style is quite different when compared to the previous series which uses a full 3D style or 2D characters and also a 3D environment like the one in Back to Nature.

Although quite fresh, for us the graphics that Light of Hope has are more suitable for mobile games. When compared to the game also made by Marvelous!, with the title Story of Seasons, Harvest Moon Light of Hope is less suitable as a console and PC game.
