What I found the most appealing and sensationally tasty was the interaction of characters and there very well defined personalities, help shoot this game through the roof, making this game a fun time passer of byness which if im not mistaken is a great thing.I found that most people dont actually take the time to beat this game, however the entire game is very entertaining, down right hilarious in some cases, it even suggests some pretty burst out lauphing squidgestions. This game will live up to any harvestmoon fan, it did for me and if speaking only by myself here would most enjoy another rune factory. I played and beat all three and recomend all of them to the full extent which leeds me to another thing this game doesnt nessisarily have any ties with the previous games so no nessisary play through of the previous titles is nessisary. All in all I would suggest this game and all its splendid glory 100 %. This was SKYSQUID the magnificence in review of RUNE fACTORY 3

High performance rune factory game, but it is visiting an area that we are all too familiar with(dante's inferno ring a bell??), but instead of 7 deadly sin's the town seems more infected with the major cardinal sins! Good foundation for a really deep plot, but maybe that is to come later? I keep asking myself why the villagers are all seemingly corrupted by all these sin? Are they cursed? Sadly, you won't get any awnsers beyond the fact that their behavior is a little odd.. REALLY?! NO KIDDING!!! Maybe it was all a plot to have a rune factory main heroine who are usually strange to be the most likely canidate for marriage for once... Don't get me wrong! This a pretty good game, but the plot just seems a bit deeper than it really is! I mean, come on, how can a whole village of people be a living testament of every major sin in humanity, and NOT have it that the town is cursed or something?! So maybe in the next installment of vthe Sharance saga we will know more about it, and maybe find a way to end the madness(or we could have a sparta moment! LOL! madness? THIS IS SPARTAAA!)
I DO have a few complaints about the festivals, as some are just too HARD! But not all of them, though, still I strongly suggest trhat you save on the festival days, so you can reload if you don't win, but DON'T expect to win right off the bat!(Presonally, I think the game cheats on festivals!) It is a good game, but it could have used a bit more balance in some areas, so it could have spent some more time in developement... TRY BEFORE YOU BUY! I Will be looking forward to see if they can take the plot deeper next time! (Will you take this man to be your husband to love and cherish as long as you both shall live? Sofia: I DON'T! (she means I DO! play it, and you'll understand, FUNNY stuff!!!)

Best Rune Factory Game

This game, in my opinion, is the best Rune Factory game. And I think you should trust my opinion, seeing as I own every single Rune Factory except Rune Factory 4, which hasn't been released yet. It has a very unique story, though it starts off basically the same way as usual, with the main character waking up in a town with no memory. The characters are all unique as well, with many different personalities, some being mysterious and somewhat antisocial (Raven), others being laidback and lazy (Gaius), while others are completely odd and hard to understand (Sophia and her father. I forgot his name...). The side requests are a good thing to keep you busy as you progress through the story, while the main requests often make you progress through the story. The bosses are often either very easy to beat, such as the raccoon in Privera Forest, or very hard to beat where you have to bring someone along and use all your magic seeds. The town and areas outside of town are all very unique and usually well put together, though they are sometimes hard to navigate (I'm not too good at video games... I try, though). All in all, one of the only DS games I play anymore and actually enjoy. I still haven't beaten it though!
