I am a HUGE fan of the Rune Factory games and I play them forever, but this game was a huge disappointment. I don't really understand how it can be a Rune Factory game without farming, which is the best part of those games and the main idea. There's no farming, at all. You capture monsters who then raise crops for you. It's super basic and dumb. They managed to make fishing dull, as you can't even see any fish and you have to wait through a little jingle each time before you can try to fish. Crafting was the same, only not as rewarding because you basically did nothing to get the ingredients. The fighting is greatly improved and very fluid and I also enjoy jumping, but without farming I lost interest, even though I love fighting monsters in the other Rune Factory games. Exploring islands was pretty boring and the giant Golem doesn't do much. Seriously, there is no point without the farming. Usually I can't live or breathe without these games when they come out but I played this one for less than a week and never thought about it again. If you've never played a Rune Factory game you may like it, but just know you are missing out on real Rune Factory games.
no offense the game looks fun but i just cant get passed the BLATANT attempt at a wii game on the PS3.... it was very hard/uncomfortable to use both the move and regular controller at the same time... all in all very disappointed with this games controls....

This is the first ruin factory that i have played and i got to say its really good. My game i ever had was with the Harvest Moon series with the Nintendo 64. When i compare this game to Ruin Factory it feels almost like the same except the whole most monster killiings and temples of monster trying to kill you. I got to say people who like the harvest moon series should play this game hands down
