Cheat Code Central writes: "Resonance of Fate is, in many ways, an absolutely incredible feat. It's my hope that developers copy this battle system wholesale and tri-Ace further explores the many avenues presented here. It is unfortunate, however, that the rest of the experience is so utterly ho-hum. The story is bearable, if not completely forgettable; the world itself isn't that interesting, and though the combat shines like a radiant jewel, you won't be doing much else during the adventure. Resonance of Fate has greatness in it, but there's still much work to be done."
