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.
Summary: This is my first experience with Rune Factory. I had a hard time picking up on the game flow and the basics if it wasn't explained. I still don't understand much about the fighting aspect of the game but find other areas very engaging. I do really enjoy completing tasks for the characters and socializing.
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: This was a really great and fun open world game. The only downside is it takes a long time...with me trying to finish it as fast as I could it took around 90 hours. I also didn't like how you have to wait until you beat the game to start a family and get married.
Summary: You can pretend that its like Harvest Moon and farm, or you can fight! The games gives you plenty of time to wander around and get your barrings together and figure out what you enjoy doing. The fighting only takes place in the dungeons, and the style reminds me of Final fantasy crystal chronicles. I'm not sure why, I guess its simply the art style. There aren't any spells to use in battle, but you can bring along a furry companion which is cool.
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.
A good game that could have been great with refined balance

Summary: Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny (TOD) is an interesting RPG that owes part of its DNA to the successful Harvest Moon "farm life" simulation series. Rune Factory blends an adventure story and role playing mechanics with farming to create an extremely unique game that straddles genres.
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.
