Story of Seasons
Top Critic Average
Story of Seasons is a refreshing game offering a positive place of escape, and while it is definitely a niche title, it gets everything it does right.
Story of Seasons is a great entry in the long running series that adds a lot of new depth, and has a clever Mario crossover.
With lots to do and a great localization, Story of Seasons is one of the better iterations of this series to come out in some time.
Story of Seasons' kept me occupied for well over 30 hours, and even then I could have kept playing until the cows came home. It took awhile for the interesting options for running my farm and business to open up, but the mix of strategy and good old-fashioned simulation made it all worthwhile. It may not have the prestigious Harvest Moon name, but Story of Seasons is definitely the bees' knees.
Story of Seasons continues the Harvest Moon series tradition by pulling players into an expansive world full of lovable characters, deep gameplay, and enjoyable music.
Story of Seasons looks fantastic, feels great, and offers an overabundance of things to do and places to see. It's a farmer's paradise, though its almost excruciatingly slow tutorial and internship will take a large amount of patience to get through if you're to see all the game has to offer, and there is a lot. Expect to clear your calendar for this excellent portable farming sim, as you'll be spending several hours turning a profit to impress the townsfolk of Oak Tree Town, your future husband or wife, or even your friends playing alongside you.
Leave everything behind and immerse yourself in Story of Seasons, then work hard and get married!

Harvest Moon titles have always been a little offbeat, but unfortunately the last few entries in the series have strayed from the series' original focus – farming – complicating the franchise's...
Story of Seasons doesn't rewrite the book on farming sims, but it's a big, healthy break from the Harvest Moon series that adds a few strong new ideas. It's Harvest Moon in everything but name, and one of the best of this kind of game to come along in a while.
Barring the frame rate drops and sometimes clunky interface, if you're looking into getting into the genre, Story of Seasons definitely does the job well and will easily occupy you with fun and addictive gameplay for hours on end.
