Resonance of Fate
The game itself, its plot is great. i love the characters and the customization of the guns and the ability to customize the characters as well. The way to travel, the way type passes and the way missions are handled are fine. my only difficulty was the battles and the bezels if that was just a little easier I would have given the game a higher rating.
So i played only up to Chapter 1 and so far its pretty good story wise its pretty slow but builds up so at least it gives me a reason to keep playing. Game mechanics are simple but i will admit i sometimes accidently hit the wrong button during battles but give some more time it shouldnt be an issue. I also like that the battles get tougher and tougher as u go. I would say its like final fantasy with guns but im not gonna stretch that far till i beat it. People who give bad reviews are people who dont like a challenge, want it to be easy to follow, and wants the game to hold there hand throughout the experience. That gets old, im glad game developers are giving a challenge and making games hard like they should be doing. Overall, good game, mysterious story, and simple gameplay makes this a good game to buy, IF your looking for a challenge.
A very funny excellent game.
The game can get repetitive but it is an RPG. I think its great with LOADS of customization. It takes most the game to figure out whats going on in the story. The gun and battle systems are great and it reminds me of a classic PS2 game by design which I love. An excellant game.
THIS GAME SUCKS I TRIED TO GET INTO IT BUT NO THE WHOLE THING WAS TERRIBLE GAMEPLAY STORYLINE EVERYTHING THE MUSIC AND GRAPHICS WERE THE ONLY THINGS GOOD I WOULD NEVER SUGGEST THIS TRASH!!!!!!!!
Great music, but horrible gameplay
I was told before buying the game that it would be difficult but there is a difference between just being hard, and having a combat system that will cause you to lose 30 minutes of work just because you press a wrong button. Pressing the wrong button is easy to do because the controls are so complex. The hero medals(or whatever they are called) are also ridiculous and cause you to instantly lose. The camera angle is also horrible as it constantly over adjusts and makes you run into things, which again causes you to lose. The games music however is awesome but that is the only positive i can really think of, unless you want the most infuriating experience of your life do not buy this game.
Very, Very good game!
People keep shooting the game down because its so different. Since Final Fantasy XIII came out close to it, it was kinda kicked under the covers. But give it a try. The fighting style is different, and i will not deny its a challange. this is not for people who a casual and like everything being handed to you. The characters all have backgrounds, and you learn as you go. A big plus is that you can change how the three main charaters look, to look how you want. I love this game and i say people should atleast give it a try.
good but needs work
its a ok game if u like rpg then get this game if not dont bother
Why the low ratings?
I was playing through Resonance of Fate, and I stopped to wonder what the rest of the gaming community thought of it. From the reviews here on Game Stop and elsewhere, I've seen other reviewers complain about the difficulty of combat, but I had this thought: things that are *new*, new as "new and not a sequel, prequel, or having the incriminating likeness of some other game", probably will be harder to grasp at the beginning. In fact, the low ratings are the reason I'm writing this review/defense/whatever-it-is because they do not do it justice.
Resonance of Fate is a role-playing game, and just like Star Ocean The Last Hope, which was also developed by Tri-Ace, the intro battle tutorial is BRUTAL. I realize that the battle tutorial has a lot of information that will be difficult for many players to digest at the beginning. On the other hand, the first battles are simple, and they become progressively harder as you improve.
The best way to begin Resonance of Fate is to go in knowing that you will need to learn how to do something completely different. Otherwise, this is what's going to happen to you: 1) oh hey, neat cut scene; 2) the arena? oh yeah, time to kick some can; 3) holy cow! I have to read?!
Im glad I took a chance on this!
I just bought the game today and have only put in a few hours but its already growing on me. I love how challenging the combat is even after you get the hang of it. So far there isnt much of a plot but I'm sure it will become clear. The combat is pretty confusing at first. I found myself getting agravated until I went to the arena and learned the tutorial. Now the combat is extremely fun. I love the fact that you technically only level up your guns but that transfers over to your overall level. I deffinately would recommend this to any of my friends that is an JRPG player.
I personally think this game is amazing. It has an exciting battle system, great graphics, three super cool main characters,and an epic world map design and concept. There are a couple of flaws, but who really cares. Stop nay saying you only seem gayer.
