This is reportedly the male version? The female version is supposed to have been released for the Wii, but I have yet too verify it...At first this game seems small, and the basic utility functions go in the direction of minigames(lame), but it does get better; it just takes time and persistence(and saving).. Caring for monsters is made quite a bit easier thnks to the fact that you apparently don't have to feed your monsters in this game.. This game seems more like an action RPG, and less like a farming sim.. You can even have a party of monsters.. I am just glad they finally produced a Rune Factory game for the PS3.. Now if Harvest Moon itself could just release a version for the PS3; we would be in business.. The only problem for the PS3 is that it is too advanced for its time, which is why many programers complain that it is a complex system too program for... If more game developers could get a better understanding of it; I think that the PS3 will be able to emerge as a solid game system.. The mini-games at first seem difficult, but they do get easier once you start building skill levels... Give it a chance folks.. Please remember to try before you buy!! I think it would have been better if it didn't have minigames for basic functions like cooking, and crafting, but that is just my opinion.. What do YOU think?? God Bless..
I loved the rune factory series up until this. Huge Golem cool, animal capture was decent but then there was no farming. Money was ridiculously hard to get and the questing was confusing. I spent the majority of the 4 hours I played watching video and wandering around until the golem passed out accomplishing almost nothing. Imho I wouldn't rent this game again and I wish I hadnt rented it to begin with.
not as good as the other rune factory games they took out all the fun stuff such as planting and taking care of animals like chickens plus it is a lot harder to make money since they cut out the planting and you also have to buy stuff that you could normally find growing around the area such as green grass and medical herbs not worth renting
