Square Enix

Threads of Fate – Second Opinion

Chi pretty much covered all bases in regard to Threads Of Fate. The graphics in the game are remarkable, and the lack of full-motion video was not missed at all as the real-time graphics more than sufficed. I especially liked how the two plotlines were told throughout the game -- although I preferred Rue's more noble quest. No matter which I picked, they were humorous and carefree overall with the right touches of drama when needed. This part of the game was proof that Squaresoft still knows how to tell as story.

Threads of Fate

Game Description: See two different perspectives of the same quest with Threads Of Fate. You can play as either Mint or Rue, each with a unique story that will take the characters to different parts of the same world. Further, each adventurer has a different style of fighting and magic: Rue can transform into monsters, while Mint gains power from her ability to mix and cast magic spell. Discover the fabric that is woven with the Threads Of Fate.

Vagrant Story

Game Description: You are the dashing Valendian Knight Ashley Riot in the action-packed role-playing epic Vagrant Story. Venture deep into dark, frightening dungeons and do battle with vile monsters in this lush, stunningly rendered adventure. You'll have to solve mind-twisting puzzles, explore diverse environments, and uncover the details of a plot rich with action and pathos. The design team behind Final Fantasy Tactics has gone all out to ensure a compelling and enthralling sword-swinging experience in Vagrant Story.

Vagrant Story – Second Opinion

What I consider to be the main weakness of Vagrant Story is that it wants to be something that its not. Sort of like Quentin Tarentino stretching as an actor or Sylvester Stallone attempting to do comedy.

Vagrant Story – Review

I've been noticing a pattern with Squaresoft's games of late. Aside from the fact that their localizations are greatly improving, I've found their plots to be increasingly unpredictable.

Vagrant Story – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence

Front Mission 3 – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence 

Front Mission 3

Game Description: Using a turn-based combat system; the player controls giant fighting robots called "wanzers" in order to fulfill mission objectives or to defeat foes in mechanical warafre. Robots can be continually upgraded by purchasing or scavenging new weapons/ armor/ computers/ ect. This game takes a new approach to increasing the depth of the game creating the Double Feature Scenario which allows the player to choose one of two completely different character viewpoint within the same general plot of the game.

Front Mission 3 – Second Opinion

This game really surprised me. I generally don't get too excited about turned-based RPGs (I lost interest about midway through Shining Force), but I couldn't stop playing FM3, and it's difficult to explain why. Like Chi, I have mixed feelings about the game. FM3 left me feeling short-changed on several occasions. And yet, this game managed to pull me in and keep me interested. I found myself addicted to the fun battle scenarios, and the story proved just compelling enough for me to keep plugging away at this futuristic RPG.
