Threads of Fate

Thunderbolt Games
28 October 2010
  • Excerpt: We all have one, a game that no matter how long our personal list may be, top ten, top five, or top three, we’ll put it on that list. For me, it’s Square’s Threads of Fate (a.k.a. Dewprism in Japan), a game that was given an unfortunate release date sandwiched between its colossal siblings, Legend of Mana and Chrono Cross , thus promptly sending it off the radar.

Threads of Fate

Playstation Illustrated
24 September 2004
  • Excerpt: Sure, there aren't too many complex textures to be found, but Threads of Fate features some nice, lush visuals. The characters are all very well defined, and the world is quite vibrant. The graphical feel of the game is quite similar to the feel of the earlier Brave Fencer Musashi , which shouldn't be too surprising -- Threads is a spiritual successor to BFM , if not a literal sequel.

Threads of Fate

RPG LAND
1 January 2004
  • Excerpt: A while after the release of Brave Fencer Musashi , there were rumors that Squaresoft had a sequel planned. Later, it was revealed that the game being discussed was similar in play and concept, but indeed a different game: Threads of Fate . This game allows the player to choose from two possible main characters: The all-business Rue and the slightly corrupt magician, Princess Mint. The character the player picks will determine a number of things for their adventure.

Threads of Fate – Review

GameCritics.com
20 July 2003
  • Excerpt: Squaresoft is a game company that gained a legion of fiercely loyal fans by mainly producing role-playing games (RPGs) with dedicated precision and unparalleled craftsmanship. If there were a book written on console RPGs, Squaresoft would take up a large chunk of it. However, their success has not been without consequences. As Squaresofts acclaim grew, so did their company.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
21 July 2000
  • Excerpt: Strangely enough Dew Prism was a Square game that I had not been anticipating much. The game was released in Japan and was well received but I thought that US gamers wouldn't react the same way. After its title was changed to Threads of Fate (which I prefer over Dew Prism), and a public demo was released, I decided to give the game a chance. Much to my surprise I found a game filled with fun, colorful characters, vibrant animation and a Disney-esque adventure story.
