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.

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 review is spoiler and essentially plot free:

To start, I am a long time fan of NIS and all the games they make, so this review will be comparing this game to other games by them occasionally.
For starters the plot of this game is pretty NIS normal (angels, demons, ect.) but what is unique is that each chapter is a side story that is different and interesting, although I do admit a few of them (especially the first 2) seem to drag on a little longer than then should.But these side stories are different from the usual chapter setup of NIS games (regardless that they are still called chapters) because the side stories are completely unrelated to the main plot. Generally the stories are even references or directly taken from various subcultures or stories told throughout the world today with a twist of course. I personally found the main plot somewhat dry and uninteresting, but the side stories are what keep making me pull the game back off the shelf to play again.

As for the game-play, it is a turn based combat system very much like Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman or mystery dungeon games if you are unfamiliar with the example. It is somewhat rouge-like in the sense that your level restarts at 1 every time you begin a set of stages and your stat gains come from leveling equipment and a skill tree of sorts that works kind of like the Cam-pain HQ from Disgaea 4 (place objects on a map to gain bonuses with positioning and efficiency playing a large role in overall effect). The only thing I found odd was that 90% of the combat (basically everything but the boss fights) is completely unrelated to the ongoing plot other than through the theme of the enemies and background. It feels like you are playing a game while watching an anime.

This game reminded me a lot of the Playstation game Azure Dreams. It's basically a "mystery dungeon" game where you can run around with an NPC partner through randomly generated dungeons. Each time you beat the dungeon or exit it, you lose all your levels but your stats get better. You don't get to use any other angel except the first one until around the 7th chapter.

It has cute artwork and sprites, but the acting quality (in English) was lackluster and at times, grated on the nerves. The music's pretty boring so I usually played my own music while crawling the dungeons.

It's not my favorite game but it was fun for what it was.
