Gorgeous scenery and graphics: Have you ever wished you could live in one of those quaint Greek villages perched on the side of a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean? Here's your chance. I only wonder why Aden's villa doesn't have windows facing the sea. He definitely needs to look into cutting a couple. The scenery is amazing!
Lots of interesting characters: These folks have a lot more to say for themselves than in RFF. Some of them seem a little silly to me, and a couple are downright creepy, but few are boring. I think I'm going to love all the requests, too. It gives me a lot more reason to want to actually run around and talk to all these people regularly than I did in RFF.
A bigger world: I have the impression that this is going to be a huge adventure, with loads and loads of places to explore. So far, I've mostly only explored Fenith Island, but I think I'm not going to be bored any time soon.
Better mapping: I had a lot of trouble finding people in RFF. Here, I can see immediately on the map where everybody is, and it's pretty cool to find them walking around in town, too. The whole atmosphere just feels very real. I also love that the islands I'm exploring also display on the map, and show me what parts I've already explored, and what parts I haven't yet reached. ETA: I love the mapping system.Read more ›
To start off with, let's go straight to the biggest change of all: Farming. In Rune Factory: Frontier, you had a more active role by clearing out your land for crops, plowing the land, seeding the land, watering the crops and finally harvesting them. Sure you eventually got animals to do the dirty work for you so it was less manual labor, but you felt a sense of satisfaction when you finally got your paycheck from Rosetta at 5 PM every day. In Tides of Destiny, its a more streamlined affair. Once you revive one of four 'dead/petrified' islands, you are then free to wave your magic stick and plant seedlings. At first, all seedlings are planted the same and none are any specific crop. That is where your monsters come in. They will determine what those seedlings will ultimate grow up to be. So the selection of monsters you have on your island at any one time is crucial to what you'll be harvesting a day or so later. You typically want two crop masters, one flower master, one tree grower and one harvest so you literally can leave the island on autopilot and come back a few days later only to plant more seedlings. This new farming method is vastly different from anything so far in the series and that is both a good and a bad thing. Bad because you no longer have an active role in how you farm, but good because there is simply way too much stuff going on this game (more than Frontier) to bother too much on farming.Read more ›
First the bad:
We faced a few disappointments in the beginning, but those were quickly forgotten about once the real game started. My daughter was initially disappointed that she could not choose to play the female protagonist, and once again was forced to play the male character. Also, the introduction to the game is painfully long and slow. The first day of the game will take about an hour to play through.
Now the good:
The characters have a lot more personality - this is important in a game the focuses in developing relationships.
There are a lot more skills for you to level up
The game places more focus on adventuring then in the previous title.
The game is now a 3D world instead of a 2.5D.
Vastly improved graphics. Not Xbox or PS3 quality, but much better for the Wii
I have been a fan of the Harvest Moon and Rune Factory series for years since I bought my first Harvest Moon game. When they created a game for the Wii, Rune Factory Frontier, I was ecstatic and even despite the complicated Runey system, I actually liked the game overall. I was excited to receive Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny because I have been keeping an eye on it since it was released in Japan.
The story follows friends Aden and Sonja who, in a flash of light, are not only transported to an island different from their own but are stuck within the same body. With the help of a golem, Ymir, they explore the ocean and raise islands, all to learn the truth behind what happened as well as find a way to separate themselves and go back to their island.
In this game you can do the same as in previous Rune Factory games such as crafting, fighting, and farming. What you can do is take on requests from the islanders which is similar to the Rune Factory DS games but wasn't in Rune Factory Frontier. What is a nice feature of this game is that you can craft immediately because the places to craft are all within different buildings so as long as you have the ingredients, you can craft better weapons, medicines, etc. Also a nice feature is the map which displays where everyone is as well as whether they are moving (indicated by the arrows) or sleeping (indicated by the three Zs). In Rune Factory Frontier, you had to memorize where everyone was at one time or another or guess where they would be.Read more ›
