Our hero enters the frontier, where no one dares enter, to cultivate the unforgiving soil. As time passes, his lonely town of one becomes a town of two, three...until it grows into a town to behold! The town is not the only thing to behold. Among the newcomers are beautiful ladies, who have moved to the town to start a new life. Which one will be our hero’s lucky lady? However, our hero is soon faced with a problem. Creatures of the frontier, many of them hostile towards humans, pose a great threat to the safety of his townsfolk. To find a way to live in peaceful coexistence or perhaps rid of them along with the danger they bring – the decision is up to our hero. From the creators of Harvest Moon and Rune Factory for the DS comes the first installment of Rune Factory for a home console. Developed exclusively for Wii, Rune Factory: Frontier features stunning graphics and takes full advantage of the Wii’s unique controls to fully immerse players in the Rune Factory universe. Rune Factory: Frontier incorporates an open-ended structure that allows players to choose the type of game they wish to experience. Whether it’s growing crops, expanding the town, fighting (or befriending) monsters or even falling in love, the experience is unique to each player.

Absolutely adore it. It keeps almost everything I love about Harvest Moon and adds wonderful new crafting and RPG dungeon crawl mechanics. The only thing it's missing is the ability to wander around the forest or beach foraging spawned items, but that's an awfully small thing.
I have never been able to articulate what I love about games like this. "I'm going to bribe some girls with cake so they'll love me, and then I'm going to water my eggplant. What fun!" Nevertheless, it's well worth a try if you want an engaging but relaxing game to play.
I am an old fan of harvest moon games. Have beaten all of them from the PS1 to the to the GBA, NGC, Psp and now I'm gonna be working down on the Wii. we all know harvest moon has alot of spin offs, like Innocent Life, which in my opinion couldn't touch the originals. It just felt like gimmicks that got in the way. I have heard of Rune Factory since it's NDS launch but never paid it any mind, so this is my first Rune Factory game and I must say, FINALLY, A GIMMICK THAT WORKS! People compare this game as a mix between Final Fantasy and Harvest Moon. It's true to a point, but not exactly, as they left out it's also a mixture of The Legend of Zelda. This is truly a sweet package with alot to offer and great open end gameplay. You don't HAVE to do anything, and that is what makes the game sweet. You can be a farmer, adventurer, alchemist, heck you can do all of them if you wanted too. You're not forced into anything. You make your own choices. This game has a distinct Japanese touch and all the female characters are made to suit this really well. Mots of them are cute as hell and stuck in a constant blush every time you interact. Alot of work was put into each character's roll and personality and the voice acting, music, controls, and graphics are all very good. We all know harvest moon games don't put much into graphics, it's a low budget game with high rep. I'd say in terms and graphics though that this game takes you higher, and I'd love to see them continue in this direction. It feels grand to be submerged in old school RPG-like culture. You got your wizards, warriors, half-elves, everything all in one. The environments were made just right for this, and the soundtrack which comprises of some great Celtic/Folk works of art ties everything in. I've played part 2 before part 1 and I must say, part one is way better. If you're looking for a great rune factory or just great harvest moon game, THIS IS IT. Rune Factory 2 Oceans, kinda strayed in my opinion. It was good, but I wouldn't say it could get close enough to touch Frontier with a stick in terms on old school Harvest Moon flavoured gameplay.
EDIT: Just to let you guys know the Kind of replay value this game has, I've already clocked in about 150 hours of gameplay in this game and STILL haven't completed the story line, STILL haven't complete all side quests, STILL haven't fully explored everywhere or beaten all the bosses, STILL haven't married yet, and am still dating all the girls to see who I like best. And believe me, I didn't spend the last 150 hours doing nothing. I've been strictly following the storyline since I popped the disk in the first day I bought it lol. Only taking small side quests here and there and little time frames where I'd be level grinding to increase my players strength, combat, and magic skills. Damn I love this game :)
