5.0 out of 5 stars A truly remarkable experience, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fragile Dreams (Wii) (Video Game)
Unexpectedly sharp in some areas, and somewhat unfocused in others, Fragile Dreams remains a game that splits opinions greatly.

Speaking from a gameplay standpoint alone Fragile dreams is mostly just average. The combat system is fine, mostly workable if a little lacking in depth; the exploration is often a highlight, but can occasionally be a bit of a drag, and the item management system is a nice attempt at making the gamer think before they act, even though it rarely succeeds in making the gamer worry about their inventory space much, in practice.

So why, with those things in mind, would I rate Fragile Dreams so highly? Well, because Fragile Dreams goes so far out of its way to try and be more than just your typical game. The story, while a little under-elaborated upon, is brilliantly worrying, and it is strengthened vastly by the atmosphere that maintains a tight grip around your journey's throat. Said atmosphere is supplied chiefly through lovely art direction, a brilliantly understated, touching musical score, and a hue of confusion, loneliness and endearment that is carried about by the protagonist and the near-empty areas within which he traverses.

You meet very few characters throughout your adventure - although those who you do meet will stay with you, in a manner of speaking, for the entire journey [the characters really are pretty amazing] - and you spend all of your time obsessively chasing down the first character who you ever came across, upon starting your quest. Not so much a story about love, or even like, then, as it is a story about just wanting to not be alone, Fragile Dreams is, in a lot of ways, an extremely progressive title.

It's not for everybody. Still, those people who do like it will probably really like it. As for myself? I was struck so much by it that it has become one of my favourite all time games. Scratch that - it has become one of my favourite all time things, period. If your interest is peaked even a little bit, then I will worry not about saying this: Fragile Dreams: farewell ruins of the moon is highly, so very highly, recommended.
