- Review: Resonance Of Fate
Resonance Of Fate had a crack at updating the usual JRPG combat mechanics with a healthy dose of slow-motion gunplay... but unfortunately couldn't quite pull it off thanks to some finnicky mechanics and a ridiculously steep learning curve. Shooting things is apparently not as simple as aiming and firing; rather, you'll have to quickly learn about scratching shields, collecting Hero Chips, performing Tri Attacks even though the game itself won't help you one bit. Occasionally a firefight will come together, but Resonance of Fate is otherwise a miserable grind that doesn't have a strong enough story to warrant the blood, sweat and tears that you'll shed learning the ropes.
