IGN: Rune Factory Frontier Review

The Rune Factory franchise is three for three, and its console debut is one that fans should really get behind. If a sequel comes around with more extravagant features (online co-op, MotionPlus support, real-time weather) and fixes some of the oddities found in this debut offering, Rune Factory could be one of the top franchises on Nintendo's console hands-down. As it stands right now, it's still a great package, and one of the deepest RPG's on the system thus far.

How does a game with the potential for over 100 hours of gameplay get only an 8.5 for lasting appeal? What would the game need to earn a 9?

That said, I may very well pick this up. I feel like this game might be totally neglected by Wii gamers in midst of the hype over MadWorld.

This game is badass, I'll take this over madworld. Not really into the gruesome.

I've put about 20+ hours into the game so far and I would have easily rated a 9.0 There is alot in this game and it all flows fairly well. There are a few things (like any game) that could be improved upon however, the bottom line is-the game is fun and very addicting. I choose this over madworld for the time being. I could have beat Madworld nearly five times by now for the time I have spent in Rune Factory!
