I've had it for a week. I've got the PS3 version and you don't need Move. A regular controller works fine.
Anyone who liked Frontier will dig Tides of Destiny as well.
There are some good changes and some bad changes but overall it's great.
The good: I love the island exploration and the quests. The farming is much easier and less time consuming, which is great IMHO. You can farm all crops as long as you have tamed the monster that plants them, no matter what the season. You can farm minerals, crystals and gems. Overall, it's more difficult in terms of the combat and getting to the final floor of the dungeons.
The bad: Despite liking the overall difficulty, some of the attacks are cheap. Sometimes it's not obvious how to advance the story. You can't ride monsters or bring them into town but can fight with three at a time. The combat controls aren't as good as Frontier though.
