Summary: While this review comes years after the initial release, I wanted to chime in on this title because I recently had the chance to finish it off and frankly, after allowing for time to digest the experience, I think that Resonance is one of the best RPGs I've played. The game is unique, the characters are lovable, the story line is intriguing, and the game play is fantastic. When this title came out it often got overlooked for Final Fantasy.
Summary: Resonance of Fate is a decent game. It is not short, but is not too long, either. Well, unless you spend time in the Arena! Combat uses Guns and Grenades. Guns can be upgraded with cool parts. It's a blast to wrack up the hits on some of the weird opponents. They say things when you nail them, heh. The story is just interesting enough to move things along, and that's all. Graphics are pretty decent, and Sound is good.
An RPG for the true gamer. strong story, steep learning curb, & fun battles

Summary: If you are not a big RPG fan, this game is not for you. There is a nice level of grinding involved, strategy in every battle (especially the boss battles) and understanding of the game that only develops with time. I would not say the game is extremely difficult if you are a seasoned RPGer, however it is very challenging and if you do not take the time to grind and customize and unlock terminals it WILL be a very difficult game to overcome.
Summary: I can't believe what a grinder of a game this is. This is more than I could imagined and i'm so excited that it's just not some short lil action game, collecting these hidden bezel shards is a huge challenge and that my friends is what a game is suppose to do. Grinding will become your new best friend, i promise you that. If you got $20 bucks to spare, i recommend picking this one up. I have yet to beat this game.
Summary: Bought the game, due to Gamestop reviews and it was worth the money. Though the battle system is very challenging since everything you do has a consequence for example like moving your character to an unprotected place and well you might take more damage than expected. The "cons" may be that it might be "too" challenging for some gamers.
Summary: Story: With most RPGs, the story is one of the most important parts. Resonance of Fate is not most RPGs. The plot that the game focuses the most on is that of the story of your three characters; Vashyron the lead Hunter (sort of a mercenary), Zephyr the young Hunter, and Leanne the newbie. Due to their profession, the characters take on various assignments, mostly from Cardinals (aristocrats) and the game focuses on their resulting adventures.
Summary: It really is. But I'll be totally honest here, cause when I first started the game, I found myself dying a lot more than I would've liked. About halfway into the game, I finally figured out how and when to properly execute attacks. The different types of ammo were a blast to use, especially when you know which enemies to use it against. The characters are nice-looking, and the graphics are quite nice, but nowhere near as beautiful as FFXIII.
