The people of Sharance and their horned Univir neighbours are embroiled in a bitter conflict. An age-old hatred between humans and monsters divides them. You are an adventurer with an unusual secret: you’re half human and half monster.

Are you the one who can unite the humans and the Univir? And will you be in time to stop the growing evil force that threatens to destroy them both?

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive Fun 5 Jan 2012
By Miles C
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Rune Factory 3 is an absorbing and totally addictive game for all ages. I'm a "silver surfer" who should be well past the youthful joys of bashing beasties and exploring dangerous dungeons ... but this game is different. Alongside the usual stalking monsters through well designed forests and caverns. the game designers have included lots of time to forge useful items and weapons; make gifts and use them to woo a variety of interesting NPCs; develop your cooking skills and find the ingredients for scores of recipes; go fishing for food and profit and farm your lands with the help of conquered creatures. As if this were not enough, the happy player can marry the girl of his choice and raise a family of children.
I finished the game without having to resort to cheats and walkthroughs, and was delighted to find that life in the village goes on with plenty to do and more small dungeons to explore. This feature makes the game infinitely playable, and I fully intend to replay it on a harder setting and court a new companion. Hours and hours of enjoyable play - I would rate this as one of the best and most entertaining games available for the DS.

5.0 out of 5 stars RUNE not moon 8 May 2012

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
just a quick review to say that I agree with the other reviewers, this game is fantastic, I couldn't put it down and I only did because after finishing the quest side of things (as well as marriage and kids) i bought Harvest Moon Grand Bazaar. This game is far superior in my opinion, much more gripping, much better graphics and smoother game play, it's much more rewarding and satisfying as well. Even little things like having the npc's appearing on the map and the key events appearing as requests in your mail box mean that the gaming experience is much more enjoyable. After I'd "finished", and there's lots of post game content, I immediately wanted to start again and "marry" someone else and try out different weapons etc. if it's a choice between this and HMGB totally go for this one, especially if you like the rpg element.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly addictive and entertaining 16 Feb 2012
By Nat
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is easily one of the best games I've ever played. It's a game with a lot to do and a lot of depth to the story. Every character is well written and fleshed-out, and it takes a lot of time to get to know them as individuals. The story develops as you interact with other characters and help them out, and there's a lot of suprises to be had.

Probably the most interesting feature of this game is its genre - it's a farming simulator with RPG elements. I know this sounds like a bizarre combination, and it is, but it really works! You start with minimal supplies, and have to work with your farm in order to make money, upgrade equipment, buy weapons, etc. It feels really rewarding and satisfying to build up a great farm and explore new areas.

This game also allows you to tame the monsters you fight, and they can help out on your farm and produce materials like eggs, wool, claws etc which can be used for cooking or crafting respectively. There is an absolute ton of stuff to do in this game, and I guarantee you will never get bored.

The RPG parts of the game are challenging without being frustrating, although I sometimes found areas where you had to keep fighting monsters to get certain items a little tedious due to poor drop rates, but fighting monsters can also get you rare items, so it's not a complete loss of time.

The controls are also very fluent - I found the controls of Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness very awkward due to being almost entirely stylus-based, but RF3 gives you the option of both touch and button controls, and both are perfectly responsive and easy to learn. My only minor complaint is that sometimes using the quick-select menu can be a tiny fiddly, especially when switching items around, but that might just be me.

I have RF 1,2 and now 3 and I'm very happy.
This story is far more better than the first game tho I wish it had second gen like the sequel.Just like the first 2 games you arrive in a small town with amnesia (YES AGAIN.THEY SEEM TO HAVE A LARGE AMNESIA RATE HUH?) you help out villagers while finding a bride though...there are a few slightly yaoi/shounen-ai moments between you and the blacksmith at times,theres a moment where he asks if you like a girl and you say yes,his reply is boring yet when you say no he acts happy and says isn't love grand.

Another is when you go on an adventure with him he will follow you back home and unlike the rest will stay there just standing there...yeah.

Moving on,the landscape is beautiful as well as the character designs.I also like how they reference the previous games just like in the sequel.Your home is self expanding and collecting wood is much easier.Character secrets will surprise you a bit and the map has been improved.
