Introduction

Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life was released on 16 March 2004, making it the first Harvest Moon release for Gamecube. The game was highly anticipated by the fan base but met mixed reviews after being released. While some praised the impressive graphics made possible by the Gamecube's graphics engine, others criticized the drastic changes in game play. The game shifted focus away from growing and harvesting crops and focused more on livestock and relationships with townspeople. Additionally, there were only two "festivals." The Harvest Festival occurring in the bar during Fall, and the New Year's Eve Festival at Grandma Romana's House during Winter.

The game offers connectivity with the Game Boy Advance game, Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town and spawned two spin-offs: Harvest Moon: Another Wonderful Life, a Gamecube version that allowed players to play as a female, and Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life Special Edition, released for the Playstation 2.
