    Default Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon (Wii)

    I'll get the ball rolling, shall I? Here's my award winning review for Fragile Dreams. (Originally posted on game.co.uk. Who for some stupid reason think Treyarch made this fantastic game)

    "Beautiful, touching, absorbing. A magnificent gem in the sea of mediocrity that is the Wii game catalogue. If you own a Wii and consider yourself to have more interests in games than simply shooting people or waggling your Wiimote to casual mini-game collections then you need to own this. Stunning anime-style visuals, a touching story that will make you laugh one moment and come close to tears the next and solid game play that will keep you hooked right until the end all presented in a mystery adventure plot that is guaranteed to keep your interest through out. This is a game that tries it's best to prove that the Wii has a lot more potential than many people give it credit for. I'd recommend anyone even a tiny bit curious to buy it. You will not be disappointed."

    I really enjoyed this game myself though there were some small problems. The inventory was way too small and it got really tiring every time I had to go back to a save point to make room for more of the mystery items I found. Combat was ok but I felt could have somehow been better if they included some kind of lock on feature. The locations were great as well but I think more could have been added to make you feel truly alone like say a city section of Tokyo it would have made you feel more alone and also be quite scary. While the atmosphere was good I felt it lost part of its feel when other characters came into play. I don’t mind the ghosts or the PF much but when Crow showed up it kind of killed the feeling of loneliness for the rest of the game as I now knew other people are out there.

    Apart from that I really enjoyed the game and while it has a few niggles here and there it’s worth a go. The story is pretty good yet I felt it would have had more of an impact if I didn’t play it with the English dub (I’m replaying it with the Japanese dub) but it did have me hooked as I wanted to know what happened to the human race. if you can find it cheap i think its worth a go.

    Oh and that yaoi kiss caught me by surprise, i was all WTF when that happend. I think many girls who play this will sqeee at that bit.

    I never found the inventory space an issue, although a lot of people seem to. When you think about it, if you were alone in the world you couldn't carry everything around with you at once, could you?

    We do find out what happened though. *Won't say any more in case of spoilers* What I wondered is why Seto and the girl were seemingly unaffected. Possible sequel? *Crosses fingers*

    Inventory space was one of the few things I didn't hate about Fragile. Not much of a survival game without strict inventory management.

    since you put it like that you do have a good point.

    I heard that the story is going on after the game but in manga form. Not 100% sure though

    Should have just done that in the first place.

    The game would have made a pretty epic anime film. It was good fun but it had a few dull moments, the repeated backtracking and the single lamest ending on the Wii held it back a bit imo

    It's a fantastic game, but it did have that feeling that halfway through working on the story the publishers had gotten a bit impatient and wanted the devs to hurry up and finish.

    Even with that it's stunningly beautiful but there's only so long you can admire it all. That ending, jesus that ending...It was like Luke vs Vader but 100 times more tame
