Leap of Fate mixes dynamic, level-based action with a unique cyberpunk/Shadowrun-esque setting, resulting in a solid title that stands out in both gameplay and environment. It’s a fun, well-balanced game limited largely by a lack of variety in enemies and challenge types – which most players will be guaranteed to notice, because it’s still entertaining enough to play again and again.

Leap of Fate offers a challenging rogue-lite experience without making it unapproachable to less serious gamers. The combination of unique characters, randomized skill trees, and an abundance of interesting Glyph effects makes every run feel like a different game.

Honestly, I went into Leap of Fate with low expectations of just another twin-stick shooter and was very impressed overall.

Leap of Fate was a pleasant surprise in the crowded rogue-like genre and provides a great value for all the variations in play styles. While the game suffers from a sense of repetition after repeated play throughs with enemies and challenges, gamers looking for a solid action oriented affair will have plenty to keep coming back for.

Leap of Fate‘s atmosphere is eerie and befitting of the cyberpunk theme throughout, with a catchy soundtrack to boot

With all that said, Leap of Fate was still a pleasant and an addicting game. I found myself going back throughout the day to kill a bit of time and to unlock a new character or attempt to pick up a new character attribute. This video game is definitely worth the $15.99 it’s currently marked at on Steam and one I recommend despite the downsides highlighted in my review.

Leap Of Fate is a fast-paced and challenging game on PS4 with some roguelike elements that will keep you on high alert. It has a solid level design, a nice cast of characters to unlock, and a good stream of content to play. Can you beat all of it in during your first run of the game? Are you that good?

But let me tell you, even though I died a multitude of times, I couldn’t stop playing Leap of Fate. Minutes turned into hours as I continued to say, “Just one more game.” While I wasn’t particularly concerned with the exposition (though completing each stage brought a very interesting line of narrative), the gameplay had me hooked. The completely randomized levels and strategizing the selection of randomized upgrades melds perfectly together to create an incredibly fun concoction of intense and furiously quick gameplay that leaves you satisfied. I will be playing this game for quite a while to come.
