Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon (DS)

 

Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon is a role-playing game much like its predecessor, sharing a simplistic combat system that is traditionally lacking in Harvest Moon games as well as a unique social emphasis that operates as a dating simulator....

Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon

 

The original Rune Factory title debuted in 2007 as the first "fantasy" Harvest Moon, complete with action RPG mechanics, dungeons, swords, and orcs. While the fantasy elements complemented the farm simulation well enough, there were too many...

It may sound like Rune Factory 2 is a worthless game, but that's only my tendency to focus on the negative, and it is especially frustrating because the developers made so many avoidable mistakes. The experience is still a solid one, however; but...

Rune Factory Review

 

The Harvest Moon series has always felt quite odd to me. It wants to be what feels like part dating simulator and part farming simulator, all while having a strange cuteness throughout the entire presentation. Needless to say, I've stayed away from...

In the end, this meshing of two different styles of gameplay is what makes Rune Factory a worthy pickup for previous Harvest Moon-ers. While it isn't a total re-imagining of the series, it still feels like a solid evolution. Also, if you've never...

A game highly accessible to newcomers, and another quality installment for franchise fans, Rune Factory 2 rewards effort with an excellently realised game world, solid gameplay mechanics, and a unique premise. It’s not for those looking for a quick...

Finally, a basic, FUN Game!

 

n+ for Nintendo DS:Fun! - Back in the 80s and 90s, we had a lot of fun games. We didn't have good graphics or sound, so we had good play control and fun game play.What is this game similar to? Have you ever ...

Fun gameplay, excellent play control, doesn't depend on graphics or sound to be fun

Can be frustrating for those without excellent hand/eye coordination. Progress can easily be halted

Greetings from Ninjatown

 

Take a moment and look at the rounded, bubbly lettering for the label that proudly proclaims Ninjatown. Look at those little heart drawings incorporated into the logo. Consider the cuddly little ninja figures and their adorable demon nemisises ...

fun strategy gameplay with a challenge far deeper than the surface suggests

the end of the game comes a little too quickly

Bogus: Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam bails hard...

 

Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam marks a significant departure for the long-running skateboarding series from what gamers have become rather accustomed to-- for better or for worse-- since Tony Hawk's Pro Skater debuted on the PlayStation console ...

Impressive sound content; familiar trick system; smooth animation

The concept falls flat; weak AI; uninspired course design
