Very Good

Good, but there are better options

Overall, Rune Factory is a solidly fun game. However, I would not recommend it to people who have played a later installment in the series. The game controls are somewhat difficult and a little buggy at times, and the characters are nice, but could hardly be considered memorable. On the whole, if you have just come out of playing the masterpiece that is Rune Factory 4, I would not suggest you try to play this one. When compared to this later game, the predecessor can be overly frustrating and just generally not a rewarding experience. However, if you have not played later installments in the series, the game is definitely worth a play.

I'm a big fan of the Harvest Moon Series so when I heard about Rune Factory combining Harvest Moon and monster fighting I was really excited. This game however really disappointed me.

The graphics aren't all that wonderful and it's on DS and I know you can't expect much out of graphics because it's the DS.. But compare this to the other Harvest Moon games on DS (Another Wonderful Life & Island of Happiness) this one was really lacking.

What was interesting though was to marry other characters you can't just talk to them everyday and give gifts, certain characters required something else. That was a plus since it's different from all the other games.

This game was really boring and I couldn't finish it so I can't say much about the storyline. This is the first Rune Factory series so I'm willing to give it another chance, I'm waiting for the new on to be released on Wii/PS3 so hopefully that's better than this.
