4.0 out of 5 stars Must Buy! November 9, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am impressed with this next installment of the Rune Factory series. Like usual, the main character has amnesia, and Shara finds an unconcious golden wooly at her door. When the wooly wakes up, he is actually a human. Shara offers him a vacant house to stay at and Micah (default name of main character) agrees. Then you must meet all the people and Shara will teach you the basics of farming.

New Features:

-Faster movement of the main character
-Brand new monsters! (I love the elephant and penguin ones)
-Unique new characters
-The village is a lot bigger than previous Rune Factory villages
-New weapons (duel blade sword)
-The bath house opens at 10 AM instead of 3 PM
-The cave layouts have improved graphics and detailing
-Micah can transform into a golden wooly
-The music is tasteful and doesn't get annoying
-A map on the top screen shows the village and where all the villagers are
-Tons of quests to complete (you can only do one per day though)
-Villagers can fight with you in caves once you befriend them

Cons:

-Sometimes it feels like the main character moves too quickly, it takes some getting used to
-Recycled plot of amnesia (doesn't bother me, but some players may not like it)
-Can get repetitive

Overall, this is a good game and well worth the $. I have been playing non-stop and I'm having a lot of fun. I like this game more than RF2, it has improved a lot. The new monsters are cool looking and strong. I love all the new marrige candidates and the graphics are great. Definately a must buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS A MUST BUY! November 22, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played RF1 and 2. Three takes it to a whole new level. The game play is much faster and takes a bit of work to get used to. Once you do, however, you will disappear into the game and may not come out again until you finish.

(Bit of a spoiler) - the game begins with a golden monster woolie appearing at a doorstep and a young woman taking it in to to a bedroom to dry off and rest. She leaves and a young man appears in the woolie's place, (of course his memory is erased - this IS RF after all!) He runs off and shows up in the town where he is given a place to live and is warned against "monsters" which live all around the town and also given tools to grow crops.

Pros: the townpeople are very interactive. They move, they converse with other people (instead of standing in one place all the time as in RF1/RF2). Of course, it IS a bit of a pain when you are looking for one particular person. The quests are more involved than RF1/RF2 too. Sometimes you can spend a whole day doing one quest.
Festivals - I'm up to summer and so far I LOVE the festivals. (The first day of summer most of the townspeople actually show up at the beach in bathing suits.)
Fighting - WHEW! You level up really really fast and can do all kinds of moves. I'm loving the fighting. Plus when you get bored with using your sword, you can change into a woolie (who has some really good moves).

Cons: the day goes by really fast so you have to plan ahead and decide how you are going to spend it. Will you fight? Make tools, cook? Flirt?
The farming is more of a pain because a storm in the middle of the day can wipe out your entire crop.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing revolutionary, but still very good November 11, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, with my day off today I feel like I've had this game long enough to write a fair review. This game is pretty standard for a rune factory game, but they've improved on some things that make it more beginner-friendly than the other RF/HM games.

Pros:
-There's a tutorial at the beginning that's fairly detailed. For new players who have never played this game before, it's very helpful. For me it was a lot of hitting A over and over to speed it up, but I'm sure anyone who doesn't know the actual goal of the RF games will really need the help.
-The graphics are very, very good for a DS game. The character sprites are meh, but the backgrounds and scenery are awesome.
-You start with a fridge and a tool box to store things.
-The characters are all so adorable. I think this is the first HM/RF game where I'm not sure who I want my character to marry because they all are so great.
-The NPCs have more dynamic schedules which makes them seem more realistic. The map also keeps track of where they are. (Unless they're inside a building, in which case you'd have to go inside to see if they're in there.)
-The combat is smooth and easy. The game uses a form of auto-targeting which makes your character automatically turn and swing in the direction of the monsters. IIRC this was in the other RF games, but it's nice to see it come back.
-The music is also very good. So that means the game has the 3 basic hallmarks of a good game. Good gameplay, good music, and good graphics. Thumbs up.
-Your inventory isn't as limited as it is in other HMish games.
-There's a lot to do. Talk to the NPCs, do requests, farm, fight monsters and level up. No boredom here!!
-Saving is quick and easy!

A wonderful game. If you like to fight monsters you can focus on that, or if you prefer to farm you can do that instead.
