Resonance of Fate Review: Grinding Isn't Just For Tony Hawk
29 March 2010
Conclusion: The Short Version: The combat system could have worked if they’d have removed the Scratch bar or more importantly severed the link between the Hero Actions and your health. It’s just so miserably hard, even seasoned RPG players will be shocked at the game’s attitude. If you’ve finished all the other console RPGs that have come out recently (out of work are we?) and you like pain and anguish, then by all means step up.
Pros: Innovative if painfully hard combat, Nolan North on fine voice acting form, It’ll last more than a weekend
Cons: Miserably difficult, Where’s the story? Why am I here? Who’s that?, A lot of grinding required for little rewards other than EXP
