Harvest Moon DS is a game in the series that seems to be pretty underestimated. It takes place in A Wonderful Life's Forget-Me-Not Valley with all the same people and places, in addtion to a couple new ones. The main goal of the game is to revive the Harvest Goddess after being turned to stone by the Witch Princess. To do this, you must rescue a minimum of 60 Harvest Sprites from the other world. This element of the game pushes the player to explore and work hard in every aspect of farming. Rescuing a sprite can be as easy as looking into a well or as hard as shipping 1000 crops. This part of the game can have excessive goals, but that's why this game is so good. As for the marrying aspect of the game, I'm pretty sure it has the most eligible bachelorettes of any Harvest Moon game. You can marry all the eligible girls from A Wonderful Life in addtion to Lumina and Flora. You can also marry two new exclusive girls, Leia, a mermaid, and Keira, a sleeping princess in the 3rd mine. Plus, if you own Friends of Mineral Town, you can connect it to unlock all of the girls from Mineral Town, however if you marry them, your game ends. Farming is relatively the same aside from being to level up your crops, which can earn you more money. One of the coolest things about the game is the Sprite Casino. You can play poker, blackjack, or a matching game. You earn coins which you can use to buy items only sold at the casino. The graphics are amazing, considering they didn't make it 3D, keeping it original with similarities to Friends of Mineral Town. There is so much to do in this game and its a lot of fun too. Easily in my top 3 Harvest Moon Games.
