Rondo of Swords Walkthrough FAQ Guide
Rondo of Swords is a strategy RPG for the Nintendo DS produced by ATLUS. Most who play the game immediately think of Shining Force, Fire Emblem, Final Fantasy Tactics, etc.
A short while after starting though SRPG fans will notice a difference. Rondo of Swords requires strategic precision or else you will likely be slaughtered, even in battle 1. You are vastly overpowered right away and you are to flee and only engage the enemy when you have to. In this game instead of moving to a spot, staying there, and attacking, Rondo of Swords allows character to attack and charge through enemies and in turn switch positions on the map. The enemy counters with the same type of strategies to ruin your formations so this is another challenge in what is already a daunting difficulty level. You will likely lose often in this game and will have to realize your mistakes because this game offers little room for error.
A couple typical things about this game typical of most ATLUS games. There are limited copies of this, you will generally only find 2 ATLUS copies of games at any given EBGames or Gamestop. Of course there is always eBay and you can probably get it cheapest on there - remember Rondo of Swords released at 30$. Always listed at Lordyuanshu ATLUS Walkthrough FAQ for the guides. The translation and characters are done well, if not a little annoying at times. ATLUS games like Rondo of Swords do a good job creating a cool atmosphere with interesting characters that you will actually care about by the end of the game.
Lots of replay value with Rondo of Swords as there are different endings to the game and many different characters to choose from. You will get to involve all the characters anyway, as even characters who are not fighting battle can be doing other errands to increase class or fight to gain levels in the meantime.
