Summary: She Love the game and hasn't wanted to play any other game she got for Christmas yet. She says the storyline is very interesting and it is like a mix between Animal Crossing and an adventure game. "You can do whatever you want in the game and discover parts of the plot as you explore.
Summary: I got this in 2011 and I have to say it was pretty cool at first. Much newer (obviously) and graphically better than its previous predecessors, it gave me a newer feel to the series, especially the whole fact that its an island isolated by many beautiful blue seas and adventurous islands and rocks and action!
Summary: I am a huge fan of farming games, but this one wasn't good. You can't place the crops where you want. the "Fields" are little bare circles on different islands that you wave a wand at to plant random crops(depending on what monsters you catch and send to the island.) The fighting is fun, but that's about it. If you like having complete control pass on this one.
Summary: I bought this game for my husband since he is a big Rune Factory fan and plays all the games. So far he's said this is one of his favorites. In his opinion, he likes this game and Rune Factory 4 better than any of the other ones. Definitely recommend!
Summary: I've always enjoyed both Harvest Moon games and Pokemon, this gave me the best of both worlds. My only complaints would be that it wasn't possible to choose which character we play from the start, and that the English translation for the bachelors scrips seemed a bit bland.
Summary: Bought this game for my kids but wound up playing it myself. It does require a lot of patience to train up some of the skills (And I'm training up all of them, because, you know, that's fun for me :P) but I like the combat incorporated in, as opposed to the pure 'harvest moon' model, and I also like the some of the dungeons/combat areas require some critical thinking/problem solving a la Zelda to get through.
Summary: I've been an avid fan of the Rune Factory series ever since the first one came out, and Amazon has always been my go-to place to buy them (as you cannot buy them in stores unless they are used). It was delivered in a timely fashion and when I opened it up everything was in pristine condition, meaning the disc hadn't slipped from the ring and the case wasn't cracked or scratched.
