Summary: this is a great entry into the series you start out as amnesiac Kyle and soon start a family, and help build a school for the children, then years later after you regain your memories and disappear take control of your young son/daughter in a desperate battle against evil creatures. It may not be the best entry in the series but this is sure a fun game to play, with a interesting story, characters, and mechanics. Farm, fight and explore.
Summary: I am a Mom and I love this game. My kids and I used to play Harvest Moon when they were growing up and we loved those games. My oldest daughter 25 has still a Harvest Moon game for the WI and her and my youngest daugher 14 still play this game. I decided after playing 2 Etrian Odyssey games to buy Rune Factory and I started with number 2. I figured Harvest Moon and a bit of monster batteling of Etrian Odyssey should make a great game.
Summary: The game is surpisingly easy for a Harvest moon/ rune factory game. You build relationships very fast threw request which makes you able to marry people with in the first year. The graphics are okay I've seen better. I love the request system and I like most of the characters.
Summary: i'm not done with it yet, but so far i like it quite a bit. i played rune factory 3 first so i knew what i was getting into. my only mini-gripes: a couple of the bosses so far have been pretty easy. that could still change though, as i'm not done yet. also, if there are a lot of characters populating the screen at once, the game slows a lot. not too often does this occur, just a thing i think others might have said as well. aside from that, i've enjoyed it.
Summary: Its a farming simulation mostly so be prepared to to plant a lot of seeds,water them.cut them,check their fertilizer, and sell them. You can get into relationships with girls living in town but its so easy that it gets kinda boring. another thing that's weird is there's voice acting but its bad and there only in the beginning of a conversation with other characters.
You shouldn't have to finish have the game before the game begins.

Summary: Rune Factory 1 provides a more entertaining experience. The market system is less broken, because you can't just purchase greenifiers to increase the levels of your crops without limit. Additionally, the ability to ride wolves allows you to spend your days more efficiently. These two facts are the improvements from 1 to 2. However, Rune Factory 2 is divided into 2 sections. The first one, you can only work on your farming, fishing, and relationships.
Summary: I agree with other reviewers about this title. Combat is pretty straightforward action style. Button tapping for simple combos and all. Simple magic system. Controls are bit of a pain, switching to and using items is tricky (since once you pick the item you can hit one button to toss it away or another button to use...) Farming is fun but frustrating at times.
Summary: If you're familiar with the Harvest Moon series then I'll summarize; character development isn't a strong point, but the management of crops and crop cycles coupled with the added details in the dungeon system are more than enough to warrant an adventure through this game. If you're still reading this then I'll assume you've not played a game quite like this.
