Friends of Mineral Town and More Friends of Mineral Town are the best in the Harvest Moon series with it's characters!

User Rating: 10 | Bokujou Monogatari: Mineral Town no Nakama Tachi for Girls GBA
Wonderful characters, fun cut-scenes, great Farming Fun! Definitely the best in the series (along with it's brother game, Friends of Mineral Town)! The graphics and style are classic and lovable, the characters are wonderful with a nice range of people to marry and friends to make! The characters have more variety and depth than the ones in A Wonderful Life and Another Wonderful Life. I especially love the fact that you can see other characters get married!
The drawbacks are that you tend to run into rival cut-scenes when you don't want to and it's rather hard like the other handheld games to gain money. But I guess that's what you love about Harvest Moon. Holidays are also hard to find or figure out sometimes, which can make you miss out on some fun times and ways to gain hearts.
It will be hard to improve upon this great game, but I hope that in the future they will keep the classical elements and variety in their characters unlike what they did in A Wonderful Life and Another Wonderful Life.
Aside from that, Mineral Town is true classical masterpiece in the Harvest Moon franchise!
