Perfect

The best Harvest Moon title in years

I have been a huge fan of the harvest moon series since the beginning, and while I love the series I have to admit it had gotten a bit stale in recent years. I had heard about the Rune Factory games, but had not played one until this release for Wii. Needless to say, I was blown away!

Presentation: Top notch. This is the best translation and voice acting of any Harvest Moon/Rune Factory game and it shows. No more bugs or goofy translations here.

Graphics: Magnificent! It has a nice muted color palette, and has a consistent graphical style. The anime portraits do a lot to endear you to the characters and everything looks very polished.

Music: Very good. Different parts of town have different music and all of it fits great. Everything matches the low key style of the game.

Gameplay: Variety is the spice of life! Focus on farming, or dungeon crawling. Whatever is your favorite aspect of the game. Unlike normal harvest moon where the grind might get tedious RFF gives you plenty to do so no one thing gets very old.

Replayability: Finding everything in this game will take you a long long time so there's plenty of value here, especially for a rental.

If you like Harvest Moon but have been bored with the series in recent years definitely give this one a shot!

If you're a fan of the Harvest Moon series (which I am), this is an excellent game. The game is primarily a Harvest Moon style game with farming, pursuing love, farming and fishing with light dungeon crawling thrown in.

Emphasis on LIGHT dungeon crawling. The RPG aspect is not the main focus of the game so if you're looking for an action packed RPG, then you will be severely disappointed.

I thought the Rune Factorys for DS were lacking and I didn't get into them that much, but I really enjoyed the Wii version. Very enjoyable game.

I personally only liked one harvest moon game and that was the GC one a Wonderful Life. I saw this and thought oh my god a spinoff.......but i rented it and i was amazed at how fun and new it was i mean fighting and farming what could be better right.....maybe farming and a gatling gun. Anyway this game built upon harvest moon and i can say its worth a try, i loved it but it made me want to go back and play the GC harvest moon, this wasnt a game for me but like i said you can go into dungeons and fight and even make the monsters your pet, the only thing i disliked is your RP bar which will evntually take all your helth out for every swing you make. But if you you liked harvest moon adn you like fighting try this game i recommend it.
