The Witch Princess and the Harvest Goddess have always fought, but the Witch accidentally petrified her and sent her to another world. She didn't want to go get her back, so she sent all 101 Harvest Sprites there. It is your farmer's job to get them back.
The graphics are good. The people are cute, and you can see everything pretty clearly. But there are so many things put onto the screen so it can sometimes can be hard to understand. The animals are look almost real! I think the graphics were done well.
The music is nice, but it plays almost all the time. You can change it, but I like it. It does get annoying, so I just turn the volume off. The music is different for each season, festival , heart event, etc. You'll like some songs, and really hate others.
The gameplay is amazing. You need to find sprites but there are so many other things that you can do. You can get married, grow crops, mine, fish, go to festivals, cook, raise animals, ride your horse, earn money. Most of it is up to you. You can even play the Matching game, poker, and Blackjack!
This game can last forever. There is so many goals. Once I finish 1 thing, there are 100 more to do. It takes about 1 week to pass one game year. If you've been playing for 3 weeks, you are just getting started. The game probably has not been out long enough to actually finish it.
There are many glithes in this game, and not all of them are good. Anyone would love this game. It's full of action, puzzle, and luck. This is one game that you will have forever. I don't think I'll ever turn it in, and if I finish it, I can start again. Harvest Moon DS I my all time favorite game.
