Summary: When humanity has grown too large and life can no longer be properly sustained on Earth, measures must be taken.... Story In an unknown era, the human population has increased to such a number that the planet has been ravaged by pollution and depleted of resources; people are forced to live on an ancient structure. Peoples' lives must be controlled, their lives and deaths in the hands of an unknown God, Zenith.
Summary: Im VERY satisfied with how this game is. Playing through Final Fantasy XIII isn't as fun when your data is erased and you have to start a new game...so I figured I should look for something to pop in that I could use to alleviate some of my pain and anger, haha, and as I am now I love the game. Although challenging at times (and the awkward but comical way the characters run) this game brought a new flavor in the RPG scene.
One of the best and most Underrated JRPGs I've played
9 August 2012
Summary: I bought RoF just because it was a cheap JRPG that had my eye for a while. I read several reviews over the past year, and because the game was received as an average game, it faded out from my thoughts. Now that I finally decided to spend the money to get the game, I'm really glad I did. This game is very unique and fun. First off I would like to address the plot and setting. The game is set on a gorgeous steam punk tower created to fix a ruined Earth.
Summary: This is probably the most difficult RPG i have played on the xbox 360. It requires a lot of grinding to complete this game and even sometimes that will not be enough because some battles will require a well planned strategy. I say this is the hardest RPG on the 360 because the game starts on normal difficulty and that can be a challenge to first time players.
Summary: The game reviews are pretty accurate. You will die MANY times in this game until you grind/level up your players and grasp the concept of combat in this game. The combat is unique since it involves a mixture of turn-based and real time JRPG combat. It can be frustrating sometimes. There is an arena that teaches you the bare basics of combat, but it's the combat that seems to be the kicker in this game.
Summary: For summary judgment, skip to the very bottom. I'll never understand Sega's game release date logic. They often release some simply outstanding games (Skies of Arcadia, Valkyria Chronicles, Sonic Adventure, NiGHTS on Sega Saturn, Shining Force, and now this), but when they release them, it's amidst larger, more notable games, and as a result the Sega games get kicked to the curb.
Summary: The fight system and the gameplay of this game is great! However it's not an RPG for the beginners of this kind of games because it requires quite a lot of familiarity and experience with the general RPG's turns rule.
Summary: I have always found JRPG's tedious, slow, silly and irritating. That is until I played Star Ocean on the xbox 360. It was truly wonderful game and I recommend it to absolutely anyone who has a fear of JRPG's. So when I heard it was the last in the series I went looking for similar titles by the same company (tri-star). Resonance of Fate is their new series presumably aimed at replacing the void left by Star Ocean.
