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.
Summary: I have purchased this game for my fiancé for Christmas. He had been searching for it for quite some time. It was either very expensive, or in bad condition. The game was received in extremely good condition, and was very affordable. My fiancé was pleased with his gift and is enjoying it immensely.
