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 Worth it!!! February 4, 2014
By Brandon
Verified Purchase
Please do not listen to mainstream reviews regarding this game! The replay value is limitless, and the gameplay is tight and fast paced. Fans of RPGs and rogue likes should check this out.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars NISA's Diablo? August 20, 2014
Verified Purchase
This game is a Roguelike not a strategy RPG like several of NISA's games. I had a good time until I read some FAQs by some of the more technically fanatical fans and was completely turned off. I did enjoy the goofy item collection (there are items that give you the head of a fish, etc.). Most people won't have my problem. I was the same way when I watched my friend grind for hours in Disgaea. When things get too tedious and technical I have to take a break from NISA games. Luckily I just grabbed the FFX HD Remake so I'll play that until I'm ready to return to chibi characters and an anime storyline. There are several Prinny references and some cameos, of course, but I though it was strange that a game about angels wouldn't have a Flonne cameo. I guess people were annoyed by her "Lord give me strength" soundbites from Disgaea.

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.

This game is really awesome if you like anime. The gameplay is boring at best and the story is average anime BS.
It has some addicting leveling up so ehh. 7 out of 10

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game
The game is pretty addicting despite its somewhat annoying over reliance in religious themes. Better system than ZHP, but powerleveling is really difficult
