It was my mistake; I followed a path that I was sure would help the rebellion's cause by abandoning my friend Lapino and, instead, going on a quest to find the ultimate weapon to defeat the Empire. Things didn't go as planned, and I accidentally destroyed the entire world. But then I was alive again.

Stories: The Path of Destinies is a really intriguing title, and, as far as I'm concerned (and despite it's flaws), is a worthy investment, but its choice making narrative needed to offer a bit more to really make an impact. As it stands, the game feels a bit shallow.

There's a couple of ways of playing Stories: The Path of Destinies. One way is to enjoy an 8-hour, narrative focused action RPG with some really cool art, sound, and game mechanics. You'll see maybe a half dozen of the stories and have a good time. The other is to go for broke and spend dozens of hours trying to get all 24 endings. Down this path lies a lot of grinding and repetition, but a heck of a lot of replay value. As with most aspects of Stories: The Path of Destinies, the choice is yours.

Some of the more painful and disappointing types of games to play are those that have obvious potential but are unable to truly shine as a result of some preventable blunders. Stories: The Path of Destinies is unfortunately one of those titles.

There is a lot to love about Stories: The Path of Destinies; clever craftsmanship of the branching narrative; vertically intricate level design; and being able to see events unfold differently as characters relationships shift is a compelling and original experience. Unfortunately it is let down by, while not uninteresting, monotonous gameplay with no real substance or relation to the broader story.

Every new run sees the narrator bring up more amusing anecdotes and the pop culture references to other games and movies are so bountiful and well placed that they made me crack a smile again and again.

Stories: The Path of Destinies is a unique adventure game where we control a fox that owns a book. A book tells a story. What story you might ask... It depends, because you choose it and that's a lot of fun!
