Good game.

Personally I love this game. I played both Rune Factory 1 and 2 and hoping to play Rune Factory 4. It's a fantasy Harvest Moon meaning not only can you grow crops, farm, get married and have 3 or 4 kids, but you also battle monsters who you can befriend.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
