This review is from: The Guided Fate Paradox (PS3) (Video Game)
In The Guided Fate Paradox Nippon Ichi (famous for their Disgaea series) decided to move away from the usual strategy RPG formula and tried a rogue-like gameplay: your character and the enemy take turns to perform one action, e.g. movement or attack. It works quite well, but the game feels more like the visual novel where the story and dialogues are more important than action. The story itself is quite original about a teenager becoming a god and having to fulfill people's wishes, the usual humour is still present, the world (Celestia and Netherworld) will be familiar to those who played other games by Nippon Ichi, but personally I prefer the Disgaea series maybe because gameplay in them is much more addictive. The Guided Fate Paradox is still quite a good game and if you need some jRPG to fill your time before holiday season, this may be a good choice.
