    Stories: The Path of Destinies is a must-play for anyone looking for a game with solid action-RPG gameplay.

    Stories: The Path of Destinies masterfully blends interactive storytelling with action gameplay. It's the story that's undoubtedly the best part of the game, but other elements are not far behind. All of this makes replaying a highly attractive proposition, even after discovering that one, proper ending.

    One of the most interesting choose-you-own-adventure style games we've played so far, where each of you choices has actual consequences. You will want to play Stories over and over again, discovering all its secrets and branching paths until you get the full picture. And that is one of its greatest powers.

    Stories is a game you can easily fall in love with, though it doesn't invent anything new. The way it mixes and entwines the paths of destiny and its peculiar storytelling top the linear gameplay. An interesting concept, well implemented.

    Interesting and stylish RPG fighter, which surprised with elaborated story and the possibility to alter the story. Only if they sort out a few bugs related to other parts of the game. Hopefully next time.

    The way the story branches out depending on your choices is really impressive, but experimenting with it becomes repetitive after a while due to scarcity of levels and too easy (but otherwise enjoyable) combat. [06/2016, p.47]

    Once again, do not buy Stories: The Path of Destinies unless the developers fix the many issues that shouldn’t have appeared in the first place.

I like the principle of the game that open many endings. The graphics are pretty good. Small fps problem when there is too much enemies. The narrator thing was a hit and miss for me. It was better in Bastion. They could at least have acquired one female voice narrator...that was odd. Game is relatively short but interesting. Once you complete the main truth, I am not sure it's interesting to see to others, but there is an option to continue to explore. Give it a 78%. Expand

    Pros:
    -Action is simplistic but fun for the short time the game lasts relying on smashing and countering.

    Neutrals:
    -The narrator is alright, definitely not on the level of Bastion, and the writing for him is mediocre.
    -branching stories/alternative paths is a cool idea but nothing interesting comes from it.

    Cons:
    -Some of the story logic seems like it was written by an unmotivated high school student.
    -The level design is very generic. Just a connection of small floating platforms and the ones with more room will spawn enemies

It is a short game that you replay several times, making different choices each time to eventually reach the "true hero" story.

    The graphics are good and the fighting is a bit of fun. The narrator is good, but he plays the voices for 3 different characters which mostly sound the same.

    The combat is mostly click to combo. Combat is clunky and he often just stands there when switching from attacking to moving/dashing.

    The story seems a little random, but it isn't bad.

    Key bindings cannot be changed.

    Got it free, played 10 hours, got 95% achievements. Estimated value of $5. Not recommended.

    Good, fun game and interesting approach to re playability.
    Why 5/10 then? Reeks of console. It's a PC port and it's terrible to play with
    Good, fun game and interesting approach to re playability.
    Why 5/10 then? Reeks of console. It's a PC port and it's terrible to play with mouse and keyboard.
    You can't even remap keys to make your life a bit easier.
    Fortunately I had this game with a bundle so didn't spent that much money.
    If you don't mind to handicap yourself with a controller then it might be fun.
