Weak

Repetitive

Jumping to it. This game is beautiful. Voice acting is JRPGish, which can work at times and not so well at others. The story is ok, different, and it can be gripping at times.
Game play. Oh man, this is where it gets old fast, I mean very fast. Boss fights do get interesting with decent amounts of strategy involved but it just gets old. Combine turn based fighting with matrix style gun play repeat. Everyone moves in straight lines while shooting and reloading in the same turn, you get to press a button to make your character jump which can turn into flips, twists, and no handed cart wheels. That is the majority of the game. Random fights on open world maps. It all just seems 2 generations ago rpg elements with current gen graphics add a decent story and thats it.
Overall my experience with ROF was good at first but it just got old. Really old and fast. I see little to no replay value. There was potential here I just think that this could have, no it should have been better. As always, thanks for your time gamers.

The storyline of this game was good but the gameplay was terrible and I could not finish the game because of how confusing it was.

Not as good as I wanted it to be

After reading great reviews on launch, I bought this game. It does have some interesting elements but it is deeply flawed. First, this game is GRAY. Just gray warehouse after gray city. The characters were just as bland.

I could deal with that, but the battle system is designed around having three characters, and you cannot do any remotely powerful moves unless all three are positioned correctly in the battle area. Problem is, there are whole sections of game where one of your characters wanders off due to a story point. I got so frustrated trying to battle with only two characters that I just abandoned the game around level 6 or so. I never quit games, especially RPGs. The frustration just eclipsed the fun, so I moved on.

I would recommend renting this game before buying.
