Summary: I got this in 2011 and I have to say it was pretty cool at first. Much newer (obviously) and graphically better than its previous predecessors, it gave me a newer feel to the series, especially the whole fact that its an island isolated by many beautiful blue seas and adventurous islands and rocks and action!
Summary: I've been an avid fan of the Rune Factory series ever since the first one came out, and Amazon has always been my go-to place to buy them (as you cannot buy them in stores unless they are used). It was delivered in a timely fashion and when I opened it up everything was in pristine condition, meaning the disc hadn't slipped from the ring and the case wasn't cracked or scratched.
Perspective from a Rune Factory fan, for Rune Factory fans

Summary: In short: if you tend more towards the Harvest Moon farming mechanics present in the Rune Factory series, stick to the handheld games. But if you enjoy the characters, lore, dungeon-crawling, monster-taming, and crafting elements of the series, Tides of Destiny offers a fun and engaging variation on the fantasy farming formula we all know and love.
Summary: I bought "Rune Factory: Tides of destiny", for my daughter for Christmas. It took her awhile before she started to play the game, as she got others as well. But once she started playing it, she really enjoyed it.
Summary: Game was delivered promptly and in working order, so excellent service. The game itself is really fun so far, I've played this game for 6 hours and have played Rune Factory: Frontier and several Harvest Moon games. The farming in this game is incredibly simplified - you're more of a manager than a farmer, placing your monsters on islands to farm for you.
Summary: Overall I have enjoyed the Harvest Moon/Rune Factory series of games. I feel there are far too few simulation/role playing games. The games tend to be family friendly and relaxing to play. As a casual gamer I enjoy playing a day or two in the game, taking a break, and then returning a few hours later for another day or two. I like the concept of exploring the vast word to find the raw ingredients to build better swords, shields, and tools.
Summary: I was kind of hesitant about purchasing a game without any reviews but I am glad that I did. I bought the game for my daughter because we really enjoyed Rune Factory Frontier. For those who have not played the Rune Factory games before, they focus on a mix of adventuring, farming, crafting items, and building relationships with the people in your town. Although there is fighting, there is no blood, or gore.
Summary: Although Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny is much different from its predecessor, it brings some innovative gameplay aspects to the table. I like the island exploration with Ymir especially. The controls are a bit clunky at times, and the battle system has some issues, but overall I really enjoyed this game. I'm sorry to see it discontinued for the Wii.
