Resonance of Fate 4K/HD Edition (PS4) Review | GamePitt

Rob Pitt writes: During the Xbox 360 and PS3 era, we had a lot of JRPGs which went above and beyond by delivering us tens, or even hundreds, of hours of engaging stories around some rather interesting mechanics. This generation we’ve had a few, but most publishers seem to think the RPG genre simply means ‘Large open world full of fluff and minor distractions’.

Thankfully, tri-Ace has spotted this gap in the current market and not only remastered Star Ocean: The Last Hope earlier this year, but they also fully remastered Resonance of Fate in full 4k on both the PS4 and PC.

Spend money on this! Not last remnant.

idk I feel like supporting both jrpgs might spawn sequels, better sequels since it's pretty random because I didn't expect to see remasters for these games. i'll pick up both.

Yeah, I'll be picking up The Last Remnant as well - if we don't get a copy to review. I like these remasters as they're nice meaty JRPGs done right with the focus on the story and content over fluff.

I know footage of The Last Remnant looks a bit choppy in places but so did Star Ocean. It's just a shame that it wasn't a tri-Ace game as they seem to have gone all-out in remastering their engine with the various PC settings on the PS4.

Definitely buying this.

How is this game? I passed on it years ago, just didn't catch my eye, but I've been on a jrpg kick lately, so may check it out.

There is a lot of depth to the systems it employs just not so great at explaining it all to you. Not your average JRPG, it's an acquired taste and personally I loved it on console when it first released and now bought the remaster on PC.

Sounds interesting to say the least, no harm in giving it a shot.

This game is really good, but that learning curve is steep. Not to mention the gun upgrading design is terribly flawed.

But anyone that wants a change of pace from the usual JRPG type games really need to give this game a go. It's seriously on some ridiculous gun-kata, John Whoo type hype.
