Rune Factory 4
This was the first game I got for my 3ds and it is AWESOME. I was totally drawn in by the compelling story line and great characters. The controls are very user friendly, and you have the ability to choose easy/medium/hard settings. I'm a novice when it comes to RPG's but this one was very easy to pick up on without being overly simplified. I played on easy and some of the boss battles were challenging for me, but I was able to beat the game. The ending battles are really cool, especially in 3D. My favorite part of the game are the characters. There are a ton of bachelors/bachelorettes to choose from and each one is unique and likeable. There is an immense amount of dialogue in this game so you are not stuck having the same conversations with the villagers every day. You can even go on dates! Overall this is a very enjoyable game that I think anyone from a hardcore gamer to someone just getting into RPGs can enjoy.
This game is amazing!!
This game is absolutely amazing. First of all, you get to choose if you are a girl or a guy. Of course...you have to marry the opposite gender though, (The game is a bit homophobic and sexist. xD) Homophobic as, if you confess to a guy (if you are a guy), he'll most likely say that it's gross. Like Doug. But if you are a girl and confess to a girl then they will say it back, not seriously. Anyways, this game is so amazing. It consists of 3 arcs. The 3rd arc is hard to get to though. But make sure you grind before getting to the 3rd arc because it has a huge difficulty spike. The characters are likable, and there are random town events that you take part of. It can be tedious at times because of everything pretty much being so random. Anyways, the game is a must have if you like games like this. Definitely the best of rune factory. It has comedy in it. Instead of fighting a native dragon at the end, you live aside the divine wind dragon, Ventuswill. Also, you are a prince or a princess and use the prince/princess points to hold stuff like festivals and other things.
the best Rune Factory game yet!
This game is everything you could ever want packed into one game. Along with the classic rune factory aspects comes a fresh and exciting take on the series. The storyline is very intriguing and surprisingly longer than I initially expected. My favorite aspect however is the characters. I love the sub events involving characters and how they really make them seem real and flesh out relationships between characters. Once I got into this game I could not put it down. Very impressed!
rune factory 4 is coming!!!
Finally!! it was hard waiting for rune factory 4 to be release in America my bought the nintendo 3ds just for that game as well and i'lll be able to play it. what i want to check first is the new story and the new events for each of the bachelorettes.
Amazing graphics, amazing storyline, amazing game!
Rune Factory 4 is probably one of the best games of the Rune Factory series, and also one of the best that I've played for the 3DS. If you love RPG-like games, or have played one of the previous Rune Factory games, I would definitely recommend playing this game. WARNING: You may never want to stop playing after you start. ;)
I am soooo excited for this game to come! i've been waiting for a loooong time for the us release and now its here! Thank you Xseed!!! This game is one of the reasons I bought my 3ds XD
lengthy, awesome plot, lame girl characters
I spent hours playing this game, much more than the other Rune Factory games. A few times I found myself wondering if it was actually going to end. There are 3 different acts so it takes a bit to accomplish them all, but pretty awesome.
The only thing I was disappointed with throughout the entire game was the bachelorettes. Pretty much every one of them is the same ditzy, cute girl and that was pretty lame. Much unlike Rune Factory 3, which was filled with lots of different personalities. The character designs are fine and dandy, and as for the boys I'd say there's some various personality. I'd say the characters are definitely lacking in variety. I ended up marrying Forte, the strong sweet-loving knight, but I found afterwards she had only become a blushy, dependent housewife. The game needs stronger females, and not the same mary sue character over and over.
Cannot wait for this
Honestly, this is one of the main reasons I got a 3DS. Rune Factory has always been a fun series and actually got me back into Harvest Moon. Can't wait to see what they do with the whole kingdom management aspect
Amazing game for a ds!
This is seriously the biggest game I've ever played on a 3ds. It's very diverse and the plot is great. The characters has a lot of nice attitudes that differs from one another and they always have some quirky dialog. Not only the main characters but the travelers as well. The fighting mechanics of this game is great, I like the fact that you can control your character how you want her/him to move. Being able to choose who you marry is great too, though waiting for an event to trigger can be a bit frustrating especially when you want to play the next arc. This game is long for a DS game, something I hadn't experienced before. Since it has random events triggered, the game itself won't bore you. They have very interesting descriptions for characters, items, and monsters. It's seriously a great game and it was worth the money. I am now hooked and it's been weeks since I've gotten the game but I am not tired of it yet, and that is surprising.
good clean fun
despite killing monsters, there is no blood or anything gross. great for people of all ages. a few glitches sometimes showed up but didn't really hinder the game play at all.
