Push Square: "You'll know with a single glance whether you're interested at all in playing The Awakened Fate Ultimatum. It's a niche hardcore RPG with an undoubtedly Japanese style of storytelling, falling victim to almost every cliché in the book throughout its duration – but doing so unashamedly. If that's not really your thing, then avoid it at all costs. Otherwise, it's a carefully made dungeon crawling roguelike, offering a real challenge and a (mostly) likeable cast packed with fun interactions. The elements borrowed from other titles only act to improve the experience as a whole, focusing on simplicity with a ton of potential for elation and breakdown alike. It's a great time sink – once those initial slow hours are out of the way. If all of this sounds exciting, you may just be fated to be together."
