Developed by Square, Threads of Fate incorporates two adventures on a single PlayStation disc. Before embarking on the third-person 3D action role-playing journey, you'll select one of two characters to utilize throughout the duration of the adventure and navigate them though a mystical world in search of a powerful relic.
Characters include Mint and Rue; while the former is searching for the relic to obtain world domination and revenge on monstrous enemies, Rue is hoping the relic will resurrect a friend murdered by a mysterious villain. Using a dual storyline system, the two heroes will cross each other's paths throughout the adventure. Once the relic is obtained and the adventure has concluded, you're given the option of restarting the game from the other character's perspective.
Depending on the character, in-game settings and dungeons vary between adventures. Settings include mountains, dark forests and mysterious terrain; located throughout each are puzzle-solving elements and a variety of monsters. Additionally, each character boasts of unique fighting and magic styles with distinctive personalities weaving together a singular story. While Rue will have the option of transforming into the last five monsters encountered and defeated, Mint utilizes destructive magical attacks formed from her ability to mix and create spells.
With real-time battle sequences and multiple weapons and items, Threads of Fate requires one block of memory card space for saving game progress and supports the Dual Shock Analog Controller for analog controls and vibration feedback. ~ Gregory Berger, All Game Guide
