Seldom are we given an rpg game that doesn't lose its luster in the first couple hours. Rune Factory Tides of Destiny trumps this conception and does more than that. I've never played a more open ended game that immersed me more in the story than Rune Factory TOD. There are countless things you can spend your time doing, you want to spend the day walking around talking to people? Ok. You want to complete challenges for villagers? Sure. You want to flirt with the local girls? (or guys later on) Why not? Traverse the sea and fight hordes of monsters on countless islands? Absolutely. Or do you just want to farm, take in the sights, or attend the various festivals in the town? You can do that and much much more! There is a major amount of gameplay time and while most of the time this would make the game boring, i found myself playing rune factory tod for hours on end without any slow down. Throughout the game when I thought I had finished the story I was always wrong, there was always something else to do. And even after you finish the entire game (which would be at least 40-50 hours of gameplay) there is STILL more things you can do. And where the game may lack in graphics and realism, it makes up for with its ingenuity, interaction, and sense of reward and accomplishment around every turn. Every last detail I can describe about this game is just phenomenal: the story, the length, the voice acting, the animation, the open ended storyline, and the overall Rune Factory TOD universe. I've given many days, weeks, and even months of my life to this game and I am not ashamed one bit. I had never even played a Rune Factory game until I decided to pick up this one on a complete and utter impulse. If you are a lover of interactive rpg games like I am, then you will be overjoyed to pick this game up. I would give this game 11 out of 10 but since I can't, I hope this long-winded review is enough to convince you to pick up this masterpiece of a game.

if you have played any of the other Rune Factory games forget all you know about the need for seeds or farming tools because this time rune factory is mostly about adventuring out to long lost islands and completing quests for people on your home island, but don't worry you can still grow crop just in an extremely different way to find out more you gotta play the game!
if you are a fan of harvest moon and/or final fantasy (this game is like a combination of the two to an extent) you should rent this game!
