Lost chance to mimic Minecraft

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Harvest Moon: The Lost Val­ley

Re­cent Harvest Moons have never quite hit the heights of the late noughties re­leases, and The Lost Val­ley seeks to pique play­ers’ in­ter­est by of­fer­ing up this in­trigu­ing role-play­ing farm sim­u­la­tion in a three­d­i­men­sional set­ting.

With a fully cus­tomis­able world, it seems the prospect of plough­ing your field any

3DS way you see fit could of­fer lim­it­less po­ten­tial.

But de­spite its charm, the game­play is a sand­box ex­pe­ri­ence that re­quires a se­ri­ous amount of repet­i­tive ac­tiv­ity.

As Minecraft mimicry goes, this is Nintendo’s best ef­fort to date, but it’s still not a patch on the premier 3D world-cul­ti­va­tor.

Life on the farm But game­play gets repet­i­tive
