Some people below are not taking into account that not everyone has played all the harvest moon games. I haven't played a Harvest Moon game in a long time. I felt like I should hold out for a while and let the improvements collect a bit before purchases another one.

As far as the graphics go, I think it looks great. Not every game needs to be the latest and greatest 3d to look good. Everything is 2d, but it is beautiful 2d IMO. We didn't stop painting once we learned to sculpt.

The game seems to take all my favorite aspects from the different Harvest Moon games and lump them in together. I like variety in these games and this installment has variety in spades. There are plenty of animals for the farm (now we have ducks as well). There is a large selection of crops. In some of the previous game they cheaped out on the crop selection, which I think is a big mistake consider this is a farming sim. Cooking is around in this game, and there are a large variety of recipes to work out. I believe this is the most bachlorettes there has ever been in a game(if you link up with a mineral town game you get even more bachlorettes choices). Marriage is included as well as children. They have included harvest sprites as hired labor, which is nice consider the large amount of fields you are given. They are tons of improvements for your farm both cosmetic and functional. Structures can be built out of a variety of material giving it varying amounts of durability. If you spend alot of time adding buildings and add-ons to your farm is can get very large, which makes the harvest sprites a great blessing. Festivals are included in this game and I believe seem to happen at a greater interval. There is a casino as well in this game, which allows you to gain some useful items.

It's true that the graphics aren't fantastic, but what do you expect when the Japanese are trying to keep it traditional? You are still farming in Harvest Moon DS, and many ways it is like the game cube version of Harvest Moon It's a Wonderful Life. You are in the same world, but you can telephone to Mineral Town. If you do own More Friends of Mineral Town, or Mineral Town you can have the gang come and visit on their days off.

Your marriage prospects are also a little bit different. You can still marry Muffy, Celia, and Nami, but now you can also marry Lumina, and Flora. Besides them there are a whole bunch of potential gals to court including a mermaid, a princess, a witch princess, the goddess, and the girls from mineral town. (Note: if you court the girls from mineral town and marry them your game will end).

I like the addition of ducks, along with chickens, cows, sheep etc. Also the new harvest sprite system is enjoyable. As you look for the 101 harvest sprites you unlock a gambling casino where you can get awesome items like recipe books, a teleportation necklace (no running around everywhere hurrah!), a friendship bracelet (now you know where you really stand with everyone in town) and a red cape (to move all your animals inside with a touch of a stylus!).

If you like harvest moon in general I think you will love this one!

I have only recently started playing the Harvest Moon games - the first one I played was "A Wonderful Life" for the GameCube, so of course I bought "Friends of Mineral Town" for the GBA. I bought this one about 2 weeks ago and I've been playing it a lot. There is so much to do! It is so much more addicting than the other 2 I've played.

The downside - and it is a major problem - is the glitches. I've had the game freeze on me several times. One of the latest freezes was when I just tried to talk to a character in the game, and instead of the touch screen showing him, it showed a toddler (what I assume would be the main character's future child - looked like the child in AWL) then froze. So I restarted from my last save and just didn't talk to that character, no problem. But then, I decided to save and quit, and the next time I wanted to load the game... nothing. The load screen gets all jumbled up and freezes. Now I will have to start over!

It is a very fun game, but some testing should have come across these issues! Game freezes are annoying, but saved data corruption is just painfully frustrating!!

EDIT (8/11/2009): Since the first (and last) file corruption incident, I have been alternating my saving between the two file slots. I haven't had another major issue. I don't even remember the game freezing anymore, and it is a fun game if you like Harvest Moon. I just hope Natsume does more thorough bug testing on future games.

Harvest Moon DS* uses the top screen for most of the "going ons" and the bottom touch screen for the rucksack, TV, Items, ect. It brings the idea of an interactive game to a whole new Lv. You can now raise ducks, sheep and cows. Along with a horse, cat, and dog given to you at the beginning of the game. With a special tool you can use the stylus and the touch screen to brush and wash all the animals. This game also makes shopping easier. All you have to do is use your phone to place an order and bam, there it is. Overall, this game is similar to the HM for GBA but it had to many new features that it's a great buy,

*I imported Harvest Moon DS (for girl's) so the version I played was in Japanese but other than not knowing "main" conversations I can play it with out a problem.
