Excerpt: Natsume went a really wild direction with Rune Factory 3 A Fantasy Harvest Moon on the Nintendo DS. This hand held role playing game is part Harvest Moon and part come together. See the monsters (horned Univir) and the people of Sharrance do not get along. We get to play a halfling.
Conclusion: With several improvements and a much shorter overall game (20 hours, versus an estimated 80 RF Frontier and 50 for RF2), I wouldn’t pass up RF3 if you’re a simulation RPG fan short on time.
