5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game with Minor Flaws October 13, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After finishing Rune Factory Frontier on the Wii and putting many, many hours into the game, I was looking forward to this new Rune Factory title. It's a great game that reminds me a bit of several other games like Mario Sunshine (the town you are in is like a Mediterranean beach resort), Zelda Wind Waker (since you explore the ocean and even have a sea chart), as well as Kingdom Hearts (based on the real time action fighting). Overall though, it's a difficult game to describe since there is so much to do in it. It's really a mix of a lot of elements, so if you're looking for a true JRPG or SIM, you won't get that but instead a nice hybrid. I did my best to note below the good, bad, and okay points about the game:

The Good:

- Hours upon hours of exploration, side quests, character customization and development, and collecting is available. It's easy to get absorbed in the game.
- Catchy music, funny dialogue, interesting and lively characters, and good voice acting (though voice acting is limited). There's no option for Japanese dialogue, though.
- The main story premise is interesting and holds a bit of mystery to it.
- Graphics on the PS3 are nicely done (with only occasional blurry textures) with no noticeable in game loading times.

Improvements over Rune Factory Frontier:

- There's now a giant ocean to explore, and there are monster sea battles that take place.
- The game gives you better direction, and there is even a request system in the inn/tavern. There are tons of requests too!
- You can track where people are in town using a map.
- The dungeons have maps, and you can quick warp to any level you have reached. Your warp home spell is very helpful too.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really enjoy the Rune Factory series, and purchased this game as soon as it was available. The series is very easy to play, and anyone should be able to finish the game, regardless of skill level. Gamers who are looking for a challenge should really look somewhere else. This is a relaxing game with no time limits, and many options for how to spend the game days. The areas are beautiful to look at and the music is pleasant.

Let me first discuss general features for people who like RPGs but are not familiar with Rune Factory.

Battle System
The battle system in this game is entirely action based, and real time. If you need to heal, you'll need to have a sufficient time without taking damage for your character to finish eating or drinking the healing item. There is no healing spell. However, if you need to go into the menu - whether to change weapons, or hold a healing item, it goes to a pause screen.

Leveling happens with each weapon type individually. Types are Katana, Dual Blade, Spear, Staff, Longsword, Hammer/Axe. As you use a weapon type, you learn new abilities, which are automatically triggered in battle or add a 2nd button to the basic mash-square formula. Also, up to 3 extra abilities can be purchased or earned with quests, although only one at a time may be equipped. These Rune Abilities are used by pushing the triangle button. By the time you reach level 11 skill for each weapon type, you'll have the basic move upgrades, including sidestep, and an uber move. Weapons may also have a magical element associated with them, another skill which levels separately.

Your battle party can now include up to 3 of the monsters you have tamed. They will level separately from you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantasy Harvest Moon December 6, 2011
By DryvBy
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a big fan of the Harvest Moon series to as far back as the SNES days. Since it doesn't look like Natsume is putting a next-generation Harvest Moon game out anytime soon, I discovered this as a recommendation. Shocked that it was coming out on PS3, I pre-ordered without reading anything about it. Maybe someone else is like me out there. This is a review given as a Harvest Moon fan, not a Rune Factory fan.

The game has much more of a story with anime segments thrown into the mix. You play as two characters (male & female) in the same body who are in some sort of alternate universe from where they lived before. Long story short, you have a house, you have a town full of people you've never met but want to be friends with, and you have chores to do.

The similarities are striking. It's a farming and social game with an added mix: dungeon crawling. However, unlike Harvest Moon, you're not waking up at the crack of dawn to water plants and plow fields. Instead, you have an island (explained later) that you grow veggies on. Instead of buying seed, planting, and all the Harvest Moon stuff you'd do, you use a magic stick to plant on soil. There's not a lot to it. The way you get seeds are to go to different islands and pet a monster until he becomes your slave. They'll tend your garden but you have to pick the plants to sell or make stuff with.

At first, I was kind of bummed out that I wasn't doing the HM style of gardening. It didn't make much sense at first. The more I played, the more I figured out why they did it this way. If you spent half your day actually farming, you're missing out on so much more of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun
This game was really enjoyable.

I liked the graphics and game play. Some of the UI elements seemed clunky to me, but that was okay. I still had a lot of fun.
