Summary: While run factory 2 allows for a generational gameplay, it prevents you from having most of the actual gameplay until you reach this second generation... Which to be honest takes a rather long time, and with very few locations to go during this first generation is a major drawback. Once you overcome this the gameplay is actually fairly decent, but I personally lost interest fairly quickly.
I think RF2 is decent, but could have been better.

Summary: The bright box caught me, and I ended up buying the game right when it came out. Right now, late June 2009, is a few months since then. Now that I am almost towards the end of the storyline part of the game, I feel I can make a good heads up for everyone else. From playing the SNES Harvest Moon, and PS2 Save the Homeland(and by the way I didn't like either of them) - and this is my first RF game, I thought I kind of had an idea of what to come for Rune Factory 2.
Summary: If you like the Harvest Moon series then you know what you're getting. Rune Factory 2 is a great new twist to the series, but there's only one problem, and a huge problem at that, it freezes up. I've previously owned Friends of Mineral Town for the Game Boy Advance, and freezing was never a problem for me even though both my brother and I have separate files on the cartridge.
Summary: I have been a big fan of the series but unfortunately I'm playing them in reverse. Loved both 3 and 4, (4 is my favourite game ever) this one not so much. It takes a long long time to get the story moving. I had to look it up because I was so bored of doing the same thing every day and nothing advancing. If you are a big fan of harvest moon (I am not for this reason, yawn) then maybe you will really enjoy it.
Summary: Hallo liebe Leserinnen und Leser, bei meinem Streifzug durch das „Spiele-Zimmers“ meines Sohnes hatte er mir zum Abschied auch noch einige Nintendo DS Spiele in die Hand gedrückt, damit ich mir diese zu Hause etwas näher anschauen konnte. Von den ganzen Ballerspielen bei ihm im Zimmer, an den anderen Konsolen schwirrte mir nämlich ehrlich gesagt ganz schön der Kopf! Natürlich ist mein Sohn kein Freund von Wimmelbild.
