I was enjoying the game until summer hit and a steady stream of hurricanes rendered farming impossible. Three hurricanes in the first five days meant I couldn't even clean up my land, much less hope to plant new things. Bit of a game breaker in a farming sim, really.
I play harvest moon and i do wish for more things to do in harvest moon so i played runefactory, i got bored easily, just like i did in the second one, I recommend this for 10 year old boys. The graphics are nice but it would be nice if they focused a little less detail on the graphics because it is to the point i cant tell if they are a girl or guy. Tame monsters ok a little different from harvest moon or transform into one, which is a wooly. Either it is just not the game for me or the game just isn't very good. I find this to be another rpg game with some flashy new details but lesser addictive qualities. Not to be harsh but it is just not all that great actually i am a little disappointed that you cant be a girl either. I was very disappointed playing this overall.
