I loved it, and though since then I've only played Harvest Moon 3 GBC, Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life and Harvest Moon: Hero of Leaf Valley, I have a great admiration for the series.

Denis Murphy writes- Jurassic Park was my Star Wars, and I'm sure this was the case for many of you too. Though I wasn't around to be originally swept up in the sprawling and visual excellence of Star Wars during its 1977 release, back in 1993 Jurassic Park did that for me. Like many kids, after watching Jurassic Park I wanted everything to do with dinosaurs. Whether they were books, films, games, toys, comics or whatever, I needed more dinosaur stuff!
