The game's music is superb, while the graphics are even more excellent. The game sounds and appears crisp and clear, and the characters are a little cartoony but without becoming ridiculous. The game has a very active feel which keeps you alert. Your character runs around and fights at the same time, which is reminiscent of the style in Brave Fencer Musashi. The gamer can finish both Rue's and Mint's scenarios for a special treat! Since it is hard to get every secret on the first run, playing the game a second time is still great. Overall, the game is fun to watch and fun to play, and can make you laugh aloud. I highly recommend this game to anyone who wants an exciting adventure!
When the demo was first brought to America, I immediately went out and got it. And I must say, I am extremely impressed.
The interface is beautiful to say the least. With two characters to play as (Rue is good, Mint is slightly evil, if you didn't already know), with intertwining storylines, Threads of Fate promises to be the best action rpg ever. The controls are simple, and only take a few moments to fully master, and is so close in graphic-type and controlswise to Brave Fencer Musashi that I consider it 'Brave Fencer Musashi 2'. Of course, the graphics, storyline, and abilites are far superior to BFM.
If you decide to play as Rue, you can morph into any enemy you killed by collecting a coin out of the first one you killed, and each transformation has different abilites, some of which are quite funny (like the porcupine-type creature in the demo). It appears that in the game, that your maximum hit points increases while running around fighting, instead of like in BFM and most other RPGs, where you have to gain a certain amount of exp to possibly raise your hp.
If you decide to play as Mint, you use magic instead of transforming. Personally, I find Mint's game harder than Rue's.
If you liked Brave Fencer Musashi, or are just a big Squaresoft fan, then you'll LOVE Threads of Fate! I think this game is worth buying, most definetly.
Both Mint and Rue are after the legendary relic, Dewprism, for two very different reasons. With the relic, Rue will be able to revive his lost, sister-like friend, Claire; and Mint will be able to get revenge on her younger sister Maya for stealing Mint's right to the throne, and also will be able to accomplish world domination, "baby!"
I was a bit disappointed to find that while Mint and Rue are both very different characters after the relic for very different reasons, both games are almost exactly the same. Both characters fight the same "bosses," and acquire the same items, there is only a few changes in bosses and items between the two games. The game is still fun because while they are similar in a lot of ways, there is also a lot of distinct differences.
For one, the way Mint and Rue attack is very different from eachother. Rue has the power to transform into past monsters that he has killed, and is even able to use their attacks; while Mint has self-taught magic that expands as Mint grows with experience.
I've always enjoyed playing Mint's game more than Rue's. Rue's story is very serious and very sad, there is hardly any humor at all in his story, and when there is a little humor, it seems forced. Mint's story, however, is filled with humor... but not to the point where it becomes annoying or silly.Read more ›

It's fun, though I admit the boss battles can be tricky if not done right. The characters are different, and Mint definitely has an attitude. Read morePublished on August 30, 2011 by Samuel Ray
