4.0 out of 5 stars An RPG where you become God November 7, 2013
Far back as I can remember I was in love with role playing games. From discovering the hobby with buying Dungeons and Dragons at a garage sale to playing Ultima 3 on my C-64. Role playing games allow us an escape from everyday life. Now NIS (the creator of the Disgaea series) have created a new series called The Guided Fate Paradox. But is this a journey that you will want to go on or should you just stay home?

The plot behind The Guided Fate Paradox centers around a 17 year old named Renya. He goes on to say that he is very unlucky and has never won anything in his life. While in a mall he comes across a cute girl in a maid outfit. She coerces him to spin the wheel as he might win a prize and he eventually does so. It turns out he has won the grand prize and the prize is that he is to become God. Renya is stunned and at first doesn’t believe her but it turns out she is an angel named Liliel. The angel transports him to Celestia and explains that his job is to alter the fates of the people that pray to him.

What Renya has to do is enter the Fate Revolution Circuit and explore the areas within. In these dungeons various monsters manifest as the persons fears and slaying these monsters help them overcome these doubts. This is one of the most interesting concepts I have ever seen in an RPG and the story is very engaging with cutscenes and great voice acting.

The dungeons that you enter are randomly generated almost giving you a rogue-like experience. Each time you enter a dungeon you will encounter different enemies, various traps and gimmicks that can hinder your progress. Unlike other games where the action occurs in real time this is a turn based game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A shining example of its genre. July 14, 2014
Guided Fate Paradox is a "mystery dungeon" style game. In short this game is way better than it really has a right to be. Mystery Dungeon games are a bit of a niche market, but this one does its genre proud with a slew of great features. One of the biggest hurdles to random dungeons is starting at Lvl1 each go around and never getting a real edge, which can be tough if you're not a strong player. NIS combated this with their usual super-buffing of characters, there is a well designed tile upgrade system that allows to earn permanent character boosts. The graphics are pleasant and crisp though they're lacking in animation during cut-scenes. No matter the seriousness or silliness of a situation the character overlays don't really react. In a curious twist the story is rather well thought out and reflects a lot on the concept of being "used" for the benefit of other people. I highly recommend this game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not terrible, not fantastic. October 12, 2014
By GuardLK
Verified Purchase
The largest irritant of this game is how you lose all your equipment and money whenever you die, which happens a lot because each stage has a large difficulty "curve" until you've ground out enough levels in previous stages to take on the next. Not terrible, not fantastic. Something to play in the vein of disgaea.

2.0 out of 5 stars Absurdly Overwritten. Little Actual Play Time. August 5, 2014
Verified Purchase
Closer to a VN than a VG. The amount of gameplay is hideously overshadowed by the "storyline," which consists of stationary character animations with superimposed text occasionally flexing while you tap the x button over and over again. There are "storyline" sections in between every single "level" and last much, much longer than the levels themselves. The levels might take 4 or 5 minutes to complete and the dialogue sections can occasionally stretch to 15 minutes or more. This might not be so awful if the storyline was a little a stronger. But God (pun?), sometimes it just keeps going and going and going on about nothing or something that has not yet been explained and so is effectively nothing. At times it also feels heavy-handed enough that it should have been aimed at children.

Ultimately, the gameplay and storyline do not organically mesh and, really, barely relate. It could literally be possible that the programmers of the game levels never even met the writers. The two aspects of the game are seriously that disparate.

Gameplay itself is fine, when we are allowed to actually play, however. Battles are entertaining enough and everything is very customizable. The leveling system is unique and innovative (although channeling FFX in certain aspects).

If you have the patience for VNs (and I don't... not NIS's fault, I suppose) you might be able to enjoy this game with only a few minutes of actual gameplay time on the hour.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice RPG, nothing like Disgaea's gameplay. December 3, 2013
I love NIS for their uber strategy role playing games with crazy high levels and huge cast of characters that you can use. The Guided Fate Paradox is another one of their variants that falls outside of that, at least for me, winning formula.

Game play is very similar to Izuna, where you move around a grid map one block at a time. Each move or action you take causes all enemies on the map to move. I'm not a fan of this style of game play because it can be mind numbingly easy or impossibly hard depending on where enemies spawn and how big your level gap is when you start trading blows.

Your main character, the only one you control directly, restarts at level 1 each stage. Finishing the stage or using an exit will dump those temporary levels into your Total Level count which raises base stats and unlocks other power ups over time. I'm good with that, it's a nice take on leveling up. You unlock stat boosting holy symbols by leveling your gear, which take a huge stat cut when the gear caps at the current level. This can only be reset at base and only up to rank 6. After that you have to find a random floor, or so the guide tells me.

The soft caps, limited ability to grind, and the single playable character + single AI team format aren't really what NIS is famous for, so that's why this game lost one star in my review. If you love Disgaea, Makai Kingdom, Phantom Brave, LaPucelle Tactics, etc... this isn't the game you're looking for.

12/16/2013 Update

So I finished the game after two weeks of very casual (1 ~ 2 hours a day) gaming. The 10 chapters feel short, especially after they stop breaking them in half. When I reached post game it all fell apart though.

This game is horribly boring. I only got through 1 1/2 dungeons before never picking it up again. There are much better games out there like Disgaea 4; just get that instead.
