So when farming turnips over and over, and chucking them at your would-be-spouse until they marry you, becomes a little repetitive - enter Rune Factory.
It features all the familiar aspects that Harvest Moon veterans both know and love. You still get to manage your own virtual farm, raise livestock (of a sort) and woo a potential wife - but unlike HM, you also have to fight monsters, RPG style. That's right, grab your sword and get ready to throw down with local cave monsters, to help the main character Laguna (that's you) recover his memories.
Honestly the formula probably shouldn't have worked, but Rune Factory actually succeeds. If you're a longtime Harvest Moon fan, but you've yet to purchase because stabbing creatures isn't really your gig. just give it a go. The Harvest Moon charm is evident, and you'll find yourself right at home!
