Story
Seto is a young boy that is extremely special; he may even be the last human being alive on the planet. In a post-apocalyptic world that’s covered in fog and has lost its light, he searches abandoned cities tirelessly with a flashlight in hopes of finding other humans, any human. As Seto searches through these eerily calm and beautiful ruins of a civilization lost, he comes across a mysterious girl named Ren, who quickly scurries away from him despite possibly being the only other living human in the world. As he struggles to be reunited with Ren and search for other survivors, he must fight off the ghosts and demons that haunt this forsaken land while also piecing together the mystery of what brought about the disappearance of all mankind.

Gameplay
Although Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon contains light RPG gameplay elements, its gameplay is based primarily in single player exploration and action. Players assume the role of Seto, who is almost entirely alone in a fog-shrouded post-apocalyptic world, but who is determined to find any and all other people who may also still live, especially the girl Ren. To do this players use the Wii Remote/Nunchuk controller configuration. The Nunchuk controls Seto, while the Wii Remote acts as a flashlight, illuminating the dark corners of the gameworld. As the game proceeds this light will also reveal other items which Seto will need to move through the game and survive the ghosts and other creatures he encounters. These include items such as weapons to protect himself and a microphone and metal detector to search the gameworld and better understand it.

Along with these utilitarian items the player will also come across a variety of other objects, such as letters, which will reveal bits of the lives of the people who used to inhabit the gameworld, and possibly add clues to what caused the state the world is now in. The RPG light elements players can expect are an inventory system that must be managed, a leveling system allowing for better weapons, simple and more elaborate attacks using the Wii Remote's "A" button, purchasable upgrades and a few optional side quests.

Key Game Features

  • Emotional Story of Abandonment, Loneliness, and Redemption – The game’s focus is on human drama as a boy wanders a post-apocalyptic world in search of answers and companionship.
  • Gorgeous Graphics and Lighting Effects – High production values bring the desolate but eerily beautiful world to life as lighting reflects realistically off environments to show all the minor details of a previously inhabited land.
  • Moving Musical Score – A haunting and inspired soundtrack helps convey a full range of emotions, ranging from utter despair of isolation, to the joy of finding small victories where least expected.
  • Controls Optimized for the Wii Remote – The Wii Remote is used as a flashlight and also as a proximity sensor to track invisible ghosts, while Seto's movements are controlled using the attached nunchuk's analog stick.
  • A Mix of Exploration-Adventure and RPG Gameplay – Players enjoy a mix of exploration and adventure gameplay, with light RPG elements added into the mix.

Fragile: Farewell Ruins of the Moon is the latest creation from tri-Crescendo, the acclaimed development team behind Eternal Sonata. It is an emotional tale about a boy alone in a post-apocalyptic world, and the high production values behind the gorgeous graphics and moody soundtrack really draw the player into the story of possibly being the only human being left on a deserted world. The game focuses on exploration and adventure, with light RPG elements.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but flawed. March 21, 2010
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
No Spoilers.

From a purely objective perspective, Fragile is an average game. But there's nothing wrong with average, we're all mostly average. I can't give it 5 Stars, no matter how much I grew to love the game's heavy atmosphere and touching story. Oh, I could gush about the beauty, but you really want to know about it's flaws that keep it from being a perfect game.

The almost unanimous consensus is that Fragile's combat system is flawed. Seto, the main character, can be equipped with random things he finds on his journey: sticks, pipes, hammers, which he uses to swing away at ghosts and other enemies. But, the weapons randomly break, some lasting a few minutes, others lasting several hours. When a weapons breaks, you have to switch to another one, but if you don't have a spare on hand, you have to go back to a save point to switch your items around. Thankfully, there are many save points, you'll never be too far from one.

Seto has two item screens On Hand and a Briefcase. It's fairly obvious, you can only use items you have On Hand, and everything else is store in your Briefcase, which you can only access in save points. This type of item management is supposed to inspire the "survival-horror" vibe, but despite being very haunting, Fragile isn't very scary. In fact, there aren't that many enemies around, and those that are, you usually can out run them or get around them. But, if you choose to fight, enemies give you experience and you level up.

It was my experience that the combat system was adequate most of the time, only birds and enemies that attacked in small areas like hallways gave me trouble. You can usually outrun the birds.

The game is short, as you might be able to predict.

5.0 out of 5 stars An intriguing game March 20, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What do you do when you seem to be the last person on earth? This game is a young boys quest to find out what happened to everyone else in his post-apocalyptic world. All seems empty, but there's beauty in the desolation. Im glad XSeed decided to publish this title in North America. It's not uncommon for talented developers to craft a game that focuses on brilliant art direction rather than polygon power, since this isn't the Wii's strong point. I'm glad because the game looks fantastic, like a watercolor painting come to life. As you might have guessed it's also heavily anime-influenced, so if this isn't your thing don't dismiss Fragile because it's otherwise still an engaging experience. Also, you do fight enemies from time to time but the focus is mostly on exploration, with a great Flashlight mechanic a la Silent Hill, and the use of everyday items to round out your inventory. The music is another high point: mellow, yet epic and immersive and it sets the dark, dreary mood of the game very well. Players even have the choice of the English-dubbed track for the voicework or the original Japanese with subtitles for the purists. Overall, Fragile is another Wii winner and another great release in what seems to truly be the best year for Wii owners so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Tragic Game March 27, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I still haven't finished the game but I had to review this for the people who are waiting for other opinions before they buy. For those of you who didn't read the game description you play Seto, a post-apocalyptic orphan who is completely alone. He doesn't know if there are other survivors left in the world so he sets off for a mysterious tower that is briefly mentioned at the start of the game. At the start of his journey he bumps into a lone girl who quickly runs off but he felt a connection with her despite their brief encounter. So now his main goal is to find her. Don't think that you and her are the only people you will see along the way. You will meet friends who will help your quest. You will run into ghosts and other "things" that you will have to fight. You will also pick up random objects that have memories embedded in them. These are one of the things that I love about this game. You can "read" these memories and I was genuinely touched by some of them. There are a lot of thoughts about death and regret that I think everyone can relate to. I know that I've had some of these feelings at one time or another in my own life. Maybe I'm a tad morbid but I digress. I'm not really gonna go into game play, camera movement, or any of that stuff as that's for another gamer to write about. I can say that the graphics are very beautiful at times although not always. The voice acting is superb, especially for the "memories". If you aren't just about killing things and enjoy stories with real human emotions then I highly recommend this game. I really can't say enough about how much I love the story behind it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great RPG game March 17, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Most of us RPG game fans have been left out in the cold with the Wii. I have to say, this was the first Wii game I got excited for. I don't want to spoil the game, so I won't talk about the story or anything like that, but this is a rare gem of a game on the Wii, and I highly recommend it. There are tons of features, like spoken japanese language with english subs, or English dubbing - your choice. Also, I didn't realize at first, but the box art cover of the disc box is reversible with second box art on the other side. You can tell the folks at XSeed took a tremendous amount of time and effort in making sure this was done right, and it shows. If you haven't picked up a copy yet, get it. Highly recommended -> 5 stars all the way.

Sure, it's a Wii game, and it's a little repetitive in the actual game play. The game is more of a "visual novel" than a game, of course, like a lot of JRPGs are. Read more
