  • A great addition to the series
    Verified BuyerReviewed by roro - April 2, 2022

    I am still pretty early in the game, but so far I am enjoying it! It's a got a good mix of farming sim, dating sim, and combat! The only complaint I have that really stands out is the lag in this game. I found turning off the optimization mode in the settings helped, and also playing it in docked mode reduces the amount of lag I get while playing. Overall, I definitely recommend this game if you're a OG fan or new to the series!

  • Dig this gem up!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Rgalindo084 - April 8, 2022

    I can speak for my wife when I say that she plays this title DAILY. Yes it has frame rate issues when you exit and enter shops and it gets a bit choppy but it’s honestly such a huge world and the story just captivated her attention so much that she refuses to play anything else at the moment. If you like harvest moon titles with an rpg spin on it then this is completely for you!

  • Do Not Buy
    Verified BuyerReviewed by UpsetConsumer - April 6, 2022

    Absolute hot mess. A great game plagued by a myriad of technical issues. Broken frame rates, long load times, uneven frame pacing. This has been out in Japan for over a year now. How dare they release a game of such poor quality. Rune Factory 4 is rolling over in its grave. We should be allowed to return games of such poor quality.

  • A great entry for the series
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Aran - March 25, 2022

    The latest installment of my favorite series hasn't let me down. It's no RF4, but it's definitely a great entry for the Switch generation. Grab this if you like the series.
