    Run, don't walk. Visit the valley and lose yourself in nature like millions of other fans have! [Issue #30 – November/December 2017, p. 26]

    Aside from a few technical blips, Stardew Valley remains a shining Stardrop in its genre, welcoming back fans of the series that inspired it and inviting newcomers to relax in the valley, too.

    It is a truly magical experience; games can often be enjoyable but they don’t all manage to be as captivating as this. This is the sort of game that ideally requires a significant amount of time to be invested; the enjoyment doesn’t necessarily come from the day-to-day actions you perform, but rather from the general growth of pride, satisfaction, and sense of security as the days go by. Fans of games such as Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing will be right at home here and, for those who aren’t, there is a decent chance this game might just surprise you. For the asking price the risk couldn’t be more worth it.

    The charming RPG Stardew Valley is so much more than just another farming simulator and feels right at home on the Switch.

    The portability of the Nintendo Switch makes this undoubtedly the best way to play Stardew Valley. Unless you are really keen on modding the game, the combination of easy portability and excellent controls makes this a staple in any well-rounded Switch library. It's still the same great farm simulator it was on PC - robust, full of secrets, and comes with an inescapable charm that will keep pulling you back in, season after season.

    The best farming sim ever finds its ideal home on the Switch, with gameplay and hardware that complement each other perfectly.

    I waited ages for this game to come out to a handheld console. I sold my Vita months ago since it didnt seem like it would ever come out (II waited ages for this game to come out to a handheld console. I sold my Vita months ago since it didnt seem like it would ever come out (I know is out for Vita or coming soon now though). Needless to say I was a huge fan of the original Harvest Moon games for Gameboy years ago and really don't like the direction the Harvest Moon series has taken in recent years with the basic tacky 3D art style and low production value. Its a shame what has happened to the Harvest Moon series but ALAS this is a review of Stardew Valley. Stardew Valley is everything the original Harvest Moon games were to me in the 90s and far more. I absolutely love it. If this was the only game I had on switch I would be fine with that. I have a hard time putting it down. There are so many options and so much to do and its just beautiful in every way. I love meeting all the characters in the town, taking care of my dog and animals and learning how to grow my crops and mine ore and craft equipment. Its like a hybrid of Harvest Moon with strong RPG elements sprinkled in with a bit of handheld Legend of Zelda flavoring and a good pinch of Animal Crossing. This game wears its inspirations proudly on its sleeves and does them all justice. If I could give this game an 11 out of 10 I would. This game is so relaxing and I love discovering how to do everything in the game on my own and very rarely look at wikis for help. Theres so much to discover and you can play it anyway you like. I cannot recommend this game highly enough. I just can't wait for them to add multiplayer! Expand

Pero como he dicho antes, te puedes dedicar a lo que mas te guste, si no te gusta la pesca, no pescas y punto.
    Otro punto a destacar del titulo es su banda sonora, personalmente me gusta bastante y se adapta bastante bien a la época del año en la que nos situamos (en invierno es mas tranquila y en verano es mas alegre).
    También tiene una cantidad de contenido bastante considerable, el cual te puede ofrecer muchas horas de juego del cual no te aburres.
    Recomiendo totalmente este titulo si lo que buscas es un juego con el cual te puedas relajar, aunque los juegos de granjas estilo harvest moon no te gusten.. Te puede ofrecer muchas horas de juego agradables por un buen precio, totalmente recomendable y he tenido una experiencia muy positiva, espero echarle muchas mas horas.

    Como observación y dato a parte, el juego al estar disponible en Switch gana ese extra de ser portátil, lo cual genera bastante comodidad para ciertas ocasiones.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The game has no ending even if you like it or not that there is no ending it will still suck because a game that is endless will grow dull and old and we humans desire more than an endless mode and the game was just a copy of a better game that people thinks it's terrible, in my opinion and other's perspective it's not worth buying or playing. Many people will ruin it for you especially it's forum. I asked for help in the forum and everyone just trolled me including the administrator and said bye and then they banned me without answering my question.

    The story isn't even that good, they just think Amazon is the illuminate and wants to drag you into hell and the main character quits its job and starts a new life in a barn which doesn't make sense because his grandpa owns a land and the character does not even use and live thereit in the first place even his mother doesn't lesson him to take over his grandpa's farmland.

    IT JUST DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

    If you want to waste your time than playing Animal Crossing or Harvest Moon, you should just try it and see it for yourself.
