  • Rune Factory 4 Remaster
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Dani - May 17, 2021

    Rune Factory 4 Special is great! It's a game in which its storyline mixes rpg monster fighting, quests, farming (not the main point of game), festivals, and romantic interests. It's practically the same as the previous 3DS version just with a new Newlywed mode and difficulty level. (I may be forgetting something else but that's all I can remember that was different) As always the game is visually stunning with its art style. I love the characters and the town. Overall it's a fun game to leisurely play. If you played and enjoyed Story of Seasons (Original Harvest Moon) and Stardew Valley, you should give this game a try! If you never played neither or any Rune Factory games, you should still give it a try, you'll enjoy it! Also, yes this is the physical game. Fun Fact: The very first Rune Factory game : Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon was a spin-off of Harvest Moon. However, Rune Factory 1-4 are its own independent game. They just have similar things like the farming, festivals and bachelors/bachelorettes.

  • Very Fun Involving RPG
    Verified BuyerReviewed by vegstick - May 31, 2021

    Rune Factory 4 is one of my favorite RPGs - I own it on the 3DS, and am extremely pleased with the Switch version. The visuals and sound are great, and the game itself is fantastic. The characters are full of personality and interact with each other. Everyone has a routine. There are many crops and weapons to choose from, and the creation system can become VERY involved, if you want to go down that black hole. If you are wondering whether you should wait for Rune Factory 5 instead of buying this game, I would say purchase this game. It's a great stand alone game, and purchase Rune Factory 5 as well if it suits your fancy,

  • Fun and Relaxing
    Verified BuyerReviewed by TKitt - March 9, 2020

    This is the first rune factory game that I have ever played and, so far, I have really enjoyed it. The farming mechanics are simple to understand as are the quests and relationship building mechanics. The battle system is fairly basic with just one attack button and a few spells, but it is still fun to play. The only downside is that the details of some of the mechanics are hidden behind certain conversations with characters that do not always trigger before you have to use a mechanic, so sometimes I found myself having to google the mechanics to understand the game.

  • Worthy JRPG
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Janet1410 - August 13, 2021

    Currently on a new game plus. I had fun with the game overall. I was a bit hesitant at first due to me not enjoying life sims much but this game surprised me with its simple but complex combat that gives you many options but doesn’t confuse you even if you don’t understand it fully. You can still enjoy the game, The characters might be a little tropy at first but they grow on you., The story is good and spans over three chapters, each being multiple hours. I would recommend this game to anyone who wants a JRPG/Life sim that they can play for multiple hours,

  • Best Rune Factory game so far
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Megatencan - January 5, 2021

    I love this game. If you are a fan of Rune factory already, you will no doubt enjoy this addition. If you are new to the series, this game is a farming action RPG with very charming characters. There are lots of little events that the whole town will participate in that always keep thing interesting. The fighting mechanics aren't too complicated, there is much more focus on collecting items, crafting, and leveling up skills, to create better recipes (buffs), weapons, and armor. It's a easy and enjoyable game to play.
