Here's a rarity for a Wii game, it doesn't rely on the motion controls and hasn't been designed solely for a multiplayer experience, instead it's one of the few games on Nintendo's latest console that's actually worth buying.
You can grab a copy of the game from HMV for £15.99, which is over £5 cheaper than the next best offer of £21.22 coming in from Tesco Entertainment.
If you've not played the previous games in the series, which were only released on the Nintendo DS, you won't be missing out on anything because this instalment doesn't rely on established story lines, although a number of known characters do crop up every now and again.
Your time'll be split up between trying to turn around the poor financial standing of the village that you're dwelling in and crawling through dungeons to further the plot. Farming is your predominate source of income and you'll have to do a number of tasks associated with the ancient profession, including planting crops depending on the season, clearing out your barn, and capturing monsters to use as livestock. As you progress through the game, you can upgrade a number of your character's abilities, including magic, weapons proficiency, and medical skills.
One of the biggest problems with the game is the lack of direction that you receive in-game, which often leads to you trawling around the environments becoming increasingly frustrated as you sit scratching your head wondering what you have to do in order to overcome the latest hiccup that you've come across.
Rune Factory: Frontier really does spoil you for choice when it comes to things to do, and as a result you'll be locked into the enjoyable adventure for hours upon end.
