Hi! Remember the article Siliconera posted about the first generation in Rune Factory 2? Well, they did a follow-up review of the 2nd generation!Siliconera.

. They mostly had good things to say about it: the gameplay is just as good as in the first gen., and the voice acting and music is good.
The biggest criticism seems to be that a) the plotline doesn't really make sense (You're a 7-year-old going through dungeons, fighting monsters all while going to school and courting potential love interests?), but that's alright since it's a fantasy game, I suppose. Second, the fact that two children of the 1st generation are your potential love candidates? They would be at least 12/13, possibly even 17/18 years old, while you're a measly 7 years old. Yeah, I think it's weird too.Gamezone.
Gamezone.com did a review of RF2 as well; they gave it a 9/10! Their review was absolutely positive. :] If you're still not sure about whether you want this game, read it here
