I can’t tell you how many times I played Harvest Moon and thought to myself, “Man, growing crops, starting a family, and helping out around town is great, but what this game’s really missing is monsters, dungeons, and battle axes.” Thankfully for all of you who share my concern a brand new Rune Factory game is here and it delivers on all your turnip-growing, monster-slaying desires.
My first real foray into the Rune Factory series was a thoroughly enjoyable one! I’ve only dabbled with the series prior to this game, but now I’m even more excited to go back and play through the past games. The amount of activities to keep you busy in this game are astounding. While nothing is done exceptionally well, having so many things to do work out so well makes the game quite worthwhile.
