PlayDevil has reviewed Rune Factory 4
Here's a snippet:
"Rune Factory 4 plants the seeds of addiction early on and feeds you satisfaction at an alarming rate. In the first few hours nearly every task you complete or even every step you take will award you with a level up – and there are a lot of things to level up here. Even sleeping has its own level, and I was sleeping my hardest to get that experience bar to fill. This constant head patting works wonders to get players through the mountains of tutorials to get through."
