Fate/Stay Night: Heaven’s Feel was the first of this series to launch. We’ve since seen an epilogue of sorts in Heaven’s Feel – a second film that sees the characters face a new evil. This sequel is named Fate/Grand Order: Second Season. It’s not quite the same as the original game and some of the old characters are missing but this game continues the story without missing a beat.
I liked Fate/Stay Night the most out of all the games in the franchise. The characters are very dynamic and the story is pretty interesting. Once I read the story I felt I was really invested in the characters, which is usually not the case for me with RPGs. I also liked the interactions between the two characters and the battle system, which was very similar to other ARPGs. I’m not sure how much I’ll like the Second Season game. I’m less attached to the characters this time around and I’m not so keen on the concept of a live-action game, but there are still a few good characters here and there.
Fate/Grand Order is a brilliant fusion of the social RPG genre and the simulation war game genre. The player takes on the role of a Servant who fights alongside powerful allies to accomplish the Holy Grail War in this thrilling role-playing game. Immerse yourself into the story!
I’m gonna be honest with you. I didn’t enjoy the first game that much. It was like a RPG version of the first Pokemon and not very good at that. (BTW, I bought the Vita version of this game right after it came out and played it for a while. Then I got a PS4 a couple of months ago and fell in love with it.) The lack of proper hand-holding, the weak party system (I’m really not a fan of the ARPG genre), the awful camera system and (if I’m honest) the age old cliche characters just rub me the wrong way. But Fate/Grand Order takes a good RPG and makes it better, much better. What really did it for me was the political intrigue and the tricky gameplay of magic. I’ve never played an RPG that made me think about how the world works. To me that’s what makes this series special. And beyond that I really love the characters. So what could be wrong with a game that makes me want to be friends with some of the characters?
