Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

A man with amnesia wanders into a town named Alvarna, where he meets Mana, a happy and helpful young woman and daughter of the local farmer. Mana takes pity on the man and gives him an empty plot of land and basic tools so that he can live for himself. Upon developing his life with a new identity, both his farm and his relationships grow, leading him to get married to his chosen bride and conceive a child with her. One day, he regains his memory and remembers why he came to Alvarna in the first place. Resuming his quest, the man leaves his young family in the middle of the night. Years later, his child continues looking after the land but has begun their own quest to find their father and discover his reasons for leaving.

Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon is the sequel to 2009s critically acclaimed Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon. A spin-off from the incredibly successful Harvest Moon series, Rune Factory took all the elements that made the series so popular and invigorated it with an RPG style of play. The resulting combination of simulation and adventure mechanics made the game a winner and received high praise from critics and fans alike.

Rune Factory 2 offers the same half-farming, half-fighting hybrid design as its predecessor did, but builds upon the foundations this set to offer a bigger storyline, more monsters and the opportunity to play through two generations of characters.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The full title of this game is : Rune factory 2 - A Fantasy Harvest Moon. If you've played a HM game before then this is MUCH better. I recommend it, or RF 3. If you haven't then don't worry just read below!

In this game you play as a boy who arrives in a village with amnesia and is given a farm to run. At first its just a plot of weeds and tree stumps and boulders, but then you earn money by selling the weeds and different coloured grasses and buying seeds to plant. You can get tools by talking to people in the town and theres a bulletin board (b-board)where you get jobs/favours to do from the towns people. When you've completed them and speak to the person you get a reward, sometimes the reward is a tool you need.

Here are the main points of the game and info on the game-

Planting crops - You need to plant packs of seeds that you buy from the store. There are crops for each season. They need watering. Some take 5 days (of being watered) until harvesting, some 7, 12, 20 days etc you can see which season and how long they take to grow when looking at item in menu before planting or buying. You need to be careful not to run out of time in the month or they'll die. You can then sell the crops

Friendships/love - There are a lot of people living in the town. The more you speak and interact with them the more they grow to like you. They begin to open up and tell you what the like and dislike, when birthdays are etc. Theres a friendship and love meter of 1 - 10 for each person. As they are growing to like you they'll give you tasks on the b-board where they ask what you think of them and also ask you on dates where their love meter will go up even more. When someone loves you by 10 then you can ask them to marry you

Times - time goes quite quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! 9 July 2011

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game as I had completed and loved the first Rune Factory game. It's very similar with the main theme being farming and other aspects include love, frienship, developing skills and, of course, combat which was an element introduced for the first Rune Factory game.

There are more features to this game, the most obvious one being that there are 2 generations and the choice of being a boy or girl in the 2nd. This is enjoyable but can make the game seem a bit too long and not as fast paced as the previous game. It also adds quite a difficult challenge - to some players it may be enjoyable, to others such as myself it can be a little frustrating.

Other features to the game include new places such as a port, a two-story house for you to live in and quests. These quests made the game really exciting and I thought they were a great addition. You can select quests from a bulliten board in the town centre. Tasks include fetching and delivering items, finding lost property, locating villagers and much more. As you carry out quests, you can improve your friendship with the people you are helping out.

This was a great game, however I have to say that it is much harder than the first Rune Factory and players may find it annoying and too challenging - I did. My main critisim is that the plot-line just wasn't as surprising and addictive as the first Rune Factory.

The plot-line and the difficultly level may have let the game down for me but overall, it was a great buy. It's a must buy for any fan of Harvest Moon, Rune Factory or just an awesome DS game. Just don't be expecting the amazing game that was the first Rune Factory.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the 3 21 May 2014

This game is the best of the trio of DSi Rune Factory games. There is sooooo much to do on it and it takes a satisfyingly long time to finish.
I refuse to buy a Nintendo 3D on principle so am unable to compare with the newest Rune Factory game which is only available in 3D.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
This came quickly and in great condition.The cover art is slightly different but I don't mind at all,the game is just like the first one but with a few improvements to inventory etc.

For those who don't know you first play as Kyle and then after you get married you will continue your adventure as his child.This change in generation comes with a second opening to the game once begun.

It is a shame however that if you do not marry Mana,the maiden on the front cover, she will marry no-one else and have no children.

All in all it kept me playing for hours,good game^^
