Resonance of Fate Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
17 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Tri-Ace is the developer behind Star Ocean and the Valkyrie Profile series’, and by now it’s obvious that the company isn’t afraid of trying to do new things with their battle systems and other mechanics, things that a lot of other teams simply wouldn’t dare to do.

  • Conclusion: Anyway, the basic premise lies in using a machine gun to give the enemy "scratch damage" and then using a hand gun or grenades to deal "direct damage" thus killing it. See? It's not that hard. You just have to read the instructions.

Resonance of Fate

1 April 2010
  • Excerpt: From the creators of Star Ocean comes Resonance of Fate that feels like Mad Max meets The Matrix in this larger than life Japanese RPG. The story is set in the future where mankind has been devastated and global warming controls the world, making reality seem like a post apocalyptic wasteland.

Expert Review

GameSpot
30 March 2010
  • Summary: The first time you fall in battle you will assume it's a fluke. How could a normal, low-level enemy triumph over your team of gun-toting heroes? The second time you fall, you will grit your teeth, wipe your brow, and rush right back into the fray.
  • Pros: Unique combat mechanics require a lot of strategy to succeed, Challenging enemies put up a fight without being cheap, Quirky story provides laughs and drama, Exploration injects light puzzle solving, Stays interesting all the way through the lengthy adventure
  • Cons: Lack of visual variety, Combat is difficult to grasp

27 March 2010
  • Conclusion: With a genre that rarely sees any sort of risks or innovation, Resonance of Fate offers both in spades and comes through with high marks at every turn. The battle system could use a bit of a softening in the early chapters, as well as the game's overall difficulty, but once mastered it becomes a lot...

An Innovative Battle System Can’t Make Up For Other Deficiencies

Game Informer
17 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Concept: Blend a traditional JRPG with John Woo bullet ballet Graphics: The Basel tower’s unique look is undercut by boring, repeated battlefield design Sound: These poor voice actors do their best with the stunningly strange dialogue.

  • Pros: Brilliantly stylished environments, A musical score to die for, A sense of humour to the story
  • Cons: Combat is brick wall hard to understand, Boss fights infuriate, It'll take an age to get to grips with
