“Agarest Generations of War is the best JRPG on the market today! It offers a ton of adventure, intense story lines, and fighting that total up to be more than 100 hours of gameplay. And the best thing about it is that you control all parts of the characters development and even each generation of powers! What more can you ask for in a game? Nothing! Agarest has everything.”
9.5/10 – At7addak

“Strategy RPG fans will find themselves spoiled with Agarest.”

게임에 대해

At the dawn of time, a terrible war raged between the forces of good and evil, ending in the destruction of the world of Agarest. After their victory, the Gods of Light unified the decaying bodies of the Gods of Darkness and created a new world.

Now, the forces of darkness are awakening once again…

• Choose the path of Darkness or Light through a truly epic story, spanning multiple generations
• Battle hundreds of different creatures using an array of character abilities, in a compelling and innovative turn-based combat system
• Build your ultimate army of warriors and master Extra Skills, Special Arts and Over Kills to defeat colossal enemies!
• Unite with your chosen heroine and use the “Soul Breed” system to shape the fate of the next generation of heroes

Agarest: Generations of War - Exclusive game features!

Agarest: Generations of War includes many unique features that cannot be found in any other Strategy Role Playing Game. Here's a summary of some of the best:

Extended Area

Extended Area is the "Linked Area" set for both your party and your enemies. Each character in the game has a uniquely shaped extended area. When a character's turn comes around, all other characters in the Extended Area of the character in play (and characters in the extended areas of those characters!) can combine in an extended attack. This allows you to chain your party's attacks together, allowing access to more Arts and huge Combos!

Blacksmith's Guild
You can upgrade various Items and Equipment at the Blacksmith's Guild in two different ways:

By Enhancement: You can enhance equipment to a maximum of Level 5. Once an Item is enhanced to Level 5, you can convert the Item, changing it into something else. This process is irreversible and the original item is lost. Experimentation reveals some great new items!

Through Alchemy: Alchemy allows you to combine several items to create a single, more powerful piece of equipment. While you lose the items used in the alchemy, you gain a powerful new piece of equipment and permanent access to your new item in the Shop! Alchemy can create powerful new weapons and armour but occasionally a Smithing Accident will occur and the smith will create a different item than what you expected!

The "Soul Breed" system
Agarest takes place across 5 generations of heroes, starting with your first character, Leonhardt. During each generation you will build relationships with 3 different female party members, and at the end of each generation's story arc you must choose to marry one of the girls.

Your choice of marriage partner is restricted to girls who've grown fond of you over a particular generation. Your options are determined by your choices during conversations at certain points of the story.

The girl you choose as your wife - and the strength of their relationship with you - will determine the abilities of the main character in the next generation of the story. You'll have to experience multiple play throughs to see all of the character possibilities open to you! What heroes might you create?

Top-Breeder Pack - Contains 2 Stardust Claws, 2 Mithril Beast Claws+, 2 Beast King Fangs+, and 2 Stardust Claws+. Your monster will look nice and pretty with this wonderful new items!
The Role-model Pack - Contains 1 Langguth Sword, 1 S.O.C., and 1 Extra Frame. "Langguth Sword. A holy sword that shines with the sacred light of god." Wow, it couldn't be more perfect!
Ceremony Pack - Contains 1 Alfa Beld Spear, 1 Gate of Hell, and 1 Chaos Frame. These seem like something you use to open a portal to the netherworld, don't they? Be careful...
Elegant-Holiday Pack - Contains 1 Washer, 1 Man's Fist, and 1 Halper Scythe. Wash your dog with the Washer, equip yourself with the Man's Fist, and throw the Halper Scythe. Go fetch! This will add a little spice to your weekend--uh, no. Scythes aren't meant for throwing. That would be really dangerous. Seriously.

I enjoy the story, I enjoy the characters, I enjoy the character interactions. I sort of enjoy the combat. I like alot about this game. I intend to complete it but after 20+ hours I am still only half way through Generation 2 (out of 5) and I am finding the repetitive nature of the combat quite tiresome. Initially I had some seriously overpowered weapons in my inventory (some dlc or preorder bonus) which I disabled so it wouldn't spoil the game by making it too easy. More have appeared in my inventory and eventually I have decided using them just to stroll through the combat and get on with the story.

I really want to see how this progresses and it is a damn shame the combat is so repetitive, there is so much more they could have done with it. There are so many character and monsters to use but you end up just using the same 6 all the time (others fall behind).

The inventoy/crafting/enhancing is unnecessarily complicated. Time spent loading old save because blacksmith can randomly fail alchemy is annoying. You need to enhance this item to make this item part then you need this book to be able to craft this item to make that item and so on, none of this is shown before you actually buy/enhance things so you have to constantly save/load to figure it all out, or google a guide.

This game is looking like it will be 100+ hours to complete, especially if you want to try to get something like the true ending. And speaking of true endings, if you really wanted it you need a guide. As with most role-playing games, it might be tempting to play this game "your way". I really hope it's less as that's alot of time to get out of it the things I am enjoying.

Unless you have 1000+ free hours at hand to experiment with its magical dialog tree and light/dark meter, your best bet is the True end guide: even though the guide will force you into picking choices you don't like (so that True end and CGs are unlockable...)

The question isn't "Is this a good game?" as much as it is "Is it worth the time?"


Pros:
*******
+ Interesting story
+ 2D Graphics and animation that never grows old (for me at least)
+ Reminded me of old ps1/ps2 games such as Saga Frontier and Vandal Hearts 2
+ Vast number of well-designed, cool characters
+ Multiple paths to take for character developement, different stat/weapon builds and story developement
+ Multiple Endings

Cons
*******
- Combat repitiveness is so dull that you want to just skip everything and wish there was a Animated Novel version of this game available on Steam
- Battles quickly became the main source of frustration, and in my opinion, not the good sort. Agarest follows the transitional "just one more boss" JPRG motto and by end of it, I was completely burnt out from grinding
- Unnecessarily complicated equipment mechanics
- There are also minor issues preventing me from enjoying this game, such as combo system dependency on team formation, deep hierarchies on crafting system, subpar translation and that damn Blacksmith
- LOOOOOOOOOOONG story
- Replayability = Zero



6/10
I'm a huge fan of Tactics games as I grew up on them, so I might be a little partial. This game is great for those who like 2D tactics games like Disgaea and such. Be prepared for 100+ hours though of said tactics game.
It's sad to see Agarest failed to deliver what it aimed to, and sadder for me still, to admit that metacritic scores (45/100) are probably well-deserved.
All I can say at this point is: there are many games you can play for 150 hours instead of Agarest: Generations of War, and in hindsight, many of them might have been a better choice.

Tl;dr Deepest tactical battle system out there, many characters, excellent growth, weapons/armor/accessories, weapon and item crafting, separate adjustable passive ability system, monster capture, in game performance rewards, great end-game difficulty. "Real" ending is impossible to achieve without min/maxing. Play once blind. 10/10 for the port. 9/10 for the game

This is a great game if you like anime and turn based tactical RPGs. I'm pretty indifferent to anime and I thought it was awesome. Just tons of different characters with different specialties. Each generation builds on the last, so you tend to feel more connected to the characters from early than late, since they've been around for so long. And contrary to the way they advertised the game, it has very little to do with sex. The main story is about developing relationships, but there are easter eggs for the horn-balls.

The battle system is as deep a system as you could dream. You can choose your fields to maximize your play style and capture monsters. Skill attacks, team skill attacks, special attacks, and ultimate attacks. A hundred different attack/magic types, with weapon specialties. Adjustable passive skills with armor and accessory usage. And a growth system that is a great blend of feeling actual progress without giving the farm away after lvl 1.

Assuming you play on "hard," the difficulty curve is a bit unusual, though. The very beginning is hard because you have so few options. Once you get to 2nd gen, though; the difficulty drops significantly until the end of the 4th generation. After that, and through the end of the game, you can no longer power your way through with grinding. It is mandatory that you develop effective tactics to deal with the punishment that the enemies will unleash.

I strongly recommend you play the game blind, and take your time. You will get 100's of hours out of this game that way. Once you've beat it once, it's good for a min/max playthrough to get the best ending. After that, the combat is fun enough to come back to occasionally; but like most games, once you figure out the most powerful attacks, it can be hard to stop using them.

There's an in game rewards system for certain accomplishments (getting $1 mil, 500 hits in one turn, having every weapon, etc), which is actually pretty fun to go after (if you are not trying for the good ending). The alchemy/weapon/armor/accessory building system is deep. Not only can you build different (1000's) of weapons, armor, accessories, and items -- each with their own strengths and weakensses; but you can level those weapons up, and even break them down into ingredients necessary for the most powerful weapons and armors. It's truly a system that requires a great amount of planning to get the most out of.

And for those who like the capture aspects of games, this game has it. Many of the advanced monsters you can get are actually worthwhile. I can't say much about this, as I'm not a big fan of capturing monsters in general; but it is an excellently implemented system.

And finally, there are tons of easter eggs. Not only the sexy kind, but additional dungeons, and uber enemies to challenge once you feel like a master.

The only thing I don't like about this game is how to get the "right" ending. I liken it to Chrono Cross. You either had to get the knowledge from an external source, or go through the game a dozen times to figure out how to get the ending that actually ends the game. And worse, you cannot procede with the relationships that are most obvious, or appeal to you the most if you want to see the ending. And you have to rush the game in order to see the actual ending. You have to finish each generation in less than so many turns. Don't get me wrong, you can do all those things, you just won't get the ending that actually ends the game.

Honestly, there's not a lot to not like about this game. Add to it that you can tranfer your data directly to the two sequels and you have a whole lot of game for your buck. I beat these games years and years ago on consol, so I know them much better than my 152 hours would suggest.

The port is fine. I really have had 0 issues with it at all. 10/10 for the port, and 9/10 for the game.

I have barely played this game, and I'm already tired of it.
The character designs, dialogue, story etc are really derivative and belong in a fan-made game. Not to mention the creepy visual-novelish sensibilites, which are a huge turn-off to me (probably the opposite of the intended effect).
The sprites are low-res and unpleasant to look at, although the animations are fine.
The controls and UI are not very intuitive and pleasant either. Overall it just doesn't feel good.

The best thing about it is the monospaced font, which I have a soft spot for.
In conclusion: go jrpg somewhere else.

I've been playing this game for awhile now and im really enjoying it. Each generation has its own unique story and character introduction that follow on with you as you play. But what I really like is the fighting it really isn't just spam your abilities there's more to it than that. So far im liking this game and cant wait to play the other two.
Rating it 4.5/5 and highly recomend it.

Just Pure Turn-based game. Disgea might be something you can relate to, other than the fact that you have to travel the world in this one.

Your characters are formed from the wives you choose, at every arc change. (Other than the first one)

If you are an anime fan, it's pretty much a must-get. But the 5 generation you have to play through might feel kinda of chore for some.

I thought this game would be an intresting rpg title, but after playing through the first chapter it felt more like a slow, unoptimized fire emblem clon.
Atmospheric through artwork and music, this game still contains a dull 'moral-choice' system, overcomplicated crafting and dungeon crawling in the literal meaning thanks to the unoptimized engine in those segments.

This game is actually a really good game despite some of the negative reviews here. Most of these negative reviews are because the game runs kinda slow. However there is a really easy tweak for making the game run super smooth.

Go into the folder where you installed the game. Locate the Agarest.ini file. ( Might have to run the game once for it to appear. )

Find this line : LockWindowFrameRate=30.000000

Change the value 30 to 60 and save and exit.

I have played with this setting for 70 hours and have NOT encountered a single issue. I do however have a pretty decent computer and therefore it might not work on old systems. But for me the game runs really great after doing this!

So if u like SRPG games and turn based strategy. Get this game and do this simple tweak and enjoy a truly great story with beautiful characters, dialogues, battle system, artwork and hundreds of hours of gameplay.

I'm not used to tactical games but this one got my attention because of it's story and artwork.
Agarest is a great game, but if you're gonna like it or not, will depend of what motivates you during your gameplay.

Pros:
+The story has a really good concept(play through generations of the same family) and it's well applied.
+All main characters are charismatics and well made, either because of their personality or appearance.
+The artwork and soundtrack are both really good.
+The battles with tons of combos and combined attacks can be really entertaining to see.

Neutral(Can be a "Pro" or "Con", heavily depends on personal opinion):
*This game is heavily based on reading, just like a visual novel.
*This game is long, you can either think it's long enough or too long.

Cons:
-After some hours, the gameplay/battle can become annoying.
-The item drop, item crafting, skill crafting and monster fusion systems are sometimes hard to deal with.
-There aren't too much battle scenarios, you'll probably have that "Déjà vu" feeling.

Bought in a sale as this was supposedly a "strategy" game, Strategy consists of using the same combinations of skils and the same formations over and over again, 3 hours in, and not a single challenging battle, typically overkilling 300hp enemies with 5000pts of damage.

UI is very awkward and clumsy, moving, attacking, info all seem to take more clicks than necessary.

Wish I'd read some of the other negative reviews before purchasing.

This is my first review of any game. Just saying. HOWEVER, Agarest deserves my review, even if my critique skills are poor.
If you read this, please read it through. :3

What even is this game?

Agarest: Generations of War is a turn-based RPG, using a system of tiles as a playing field, where your characters can move and attack opposing enemies. Simple, right? Kind of. (we'll get into that later). But, for now, realize that this game is a turn-based RPG with a visual-novel story-telling method and a TON of stats to consider. (which I love).

Story

The story in this game is interesting. I like it because of it's simplicity, yet there are mysteries to solve (if you pay attention) and lore to uncover. It takes place in a magical land where Humans and other various species (like Elves) are at war. There is a backstory about light and dark, and dark lords and such, but you read that in the beginning of the game, so you can do that.

Overall, it's not a bad story. However, since I haven't finished the game, I cannot give a complete answer. Howver so far it takes my interest.

Characters

Each character in this game is unique in their own ways (which is a must for RPG's, and any game for that matter). So far, I feel no "emotional" attatchment to any of them, and I honestly don't think I ever will. This isn't "bad", but to some it's undesirable. To me, all that matters is character interaction, personality, how they play in the story, their lore, and their designs. All of these are present in the game.

Battle System

I'll explain in short: you move your characters to the desired spaces (calle the Move Phase), and make them face directions. Directions matter . Depending on their direction, certain characters can couple and attack WITH the character you move. Every character has move sets specific to them, their weapon, and their armor piece (forgot the name). Each move has an element, number of hits, range and AP cost (you regain after each cycle). So, switching weapons not only changes your stats, but it also changes your moveset with different elements. The Arts abilities are combonations of attacks, in which characters MUST be coupled. Special Arts are combos of Arts. (So you can see how much variety there can be).
This is personal, but I LOVE stat-heavy games such as this. Some people don't, but for me it adds a nice strategy element,
You would have to play the game to understand how AP and SP works, and how the battle system works. Because, in reality this is the whole game . (With the exception of exploring areas and towns, which contain Blacksmiths, Item Shops, etc).

Pros

  • Great Art
  • Interesting Battle System
  • Par story
  • HUGE amount of gameplay hours
  • Story decisions
  • Interesting Generation system *
  • Fun to play

Cons
  • Repetitive at times
  • Premium upgrade makes beginning easy as HECK
  • Other little nit-picks (like how towns are not free roaming)

*Depending on who you marry (out of 3 girls), the next generation will have differing stats, a unique and cool feature.

Conclusion

I bought all three games for $17.99 on the winter sale, and I am not dissapointed. I love the fan-base, and love the game. Cannot wait to get farther into it, and to start the other two games.

Honestly, they are great and this game is the perfect starter to the series (even if Agarest Zero is the prequel). So,if you're wondering "Should I buy it? It looks kinda cool" then don't hesitate. Just get it. If your a fan of these kind of games, you won't be dissapointed.

Battle System

I'll explain in short: you move your characters to the desired spaces (calle the Move Phase), and make them face directions. Directions matter . Depending on their direction, certain characters can couple and attack WITH the character you move. Every character has move sets specific to them, their weapon, and their armor piece (forgot the name). Each move has an element, number of hits, range and AP cost (you regain after each cycle). So, switching weapons not only changes your stats, but it also changes your moveset with different elements. The Arts abilities are combonations of attacks, in which characters MUST be coupled. Special Arts are combos of Arts. (So you can see how much variety there can be).
This is personal, but I LOVE stat-heavy games such as this. Some people don't, but for me it adds a nice strategy element,
You would have to play the game to understand how AP and SP works, and how the battle system works. Because, in reality this is the whole game . (With the exception of exploring areas and towns, which contain Blacksmiths, Item Shops, etc).

Pros

  • Great Art
  • Interesting Battle System
  • Par story
  • HUGE amount of gameplay hours
  • Story decisions
  • Interesting Generation system *
  • Fun to play

Cons
  • Repetitive at times
  • Premium upgrade makes beginning easy as HECK
  • Other little nit-picks (like how towns are not free roaming)

*Depending on who you marry (out of 3 girls), the next generation will have differing stats, a unique and cool feature.

Conclusion

I bought all three games for $17.99 on the winter sale, and I am not dissapointed. I love the fan-base, and love the game. Cannot wait to get farther into it, and to start the other two games.

Honestly, they are great and this game is the perfect starter to the series (even if Agarest Zero is the prequel). So,if you're wondering "Should I buy it? It looks kinda cool" then don't hesitate. Just get it. If your a fan of these kind of games, you won't be dissapointed.

I'm reccommending this, though not for general play. Those who aren't willing to start their first run on hard, adhere to a "perfect path" guide and refer to an underkept wiki constantly for necessary strategic information need not apply.

That being said, don't knock it 'til you try it!

Additional Information May 2nd, 2016:
I don't reccommend purchasing the DLC, as it's primarily items that can be found through general gameplay and grinding. If you're going to buy it, though, in an effort to breeze through the first three or four generations on a non-newgame+ hard mode run, only buy DLC packs 2, 3 and 4 when they're on sale for less than $2.00 a piece. The contents of pack 1 come bundled with the game, though won't say you already own DLC pack 1. Do not buy packs 5 and 6; you probably don't need to buy anything if you can't afford it, and you'll have several times the amount needed when you do (refer to the game's screenshots displaying the amoung of gold, pp and tp, and you'll see just how inconsequential the amounts really are). Pack 6 is a pure waste of money, all the cutscenes and profiles are unlocked upon achieving the perfect ending (look for it in the Steam guides section). If you're going to buy the "premium edition" upgrade, know that the bundled soundtrack is incomplete (No "In Your Face," the one song I bought it for???) and the wallpapers can be found online for free. It's fine if you want to buy it for the sake of supporting the game, though it's rewarding a fairly half-baked effort.

2 Stars - A slice of JRPG culture that may not appeal to new entrants to this style.

Although the game trys to build on a strong platform of coordinated tactical battles and gripping Japanese story telling I found this game missed the mark.

I am not a regular in the JRPG arena and I found this game to be a slugging grindfest. Repititive tatical battles are often duplicated and unengaging. The base game comes with a level of DLC type content which should mean that a small portion of your party is over powered from the start while the rest are left looking weak and fragile. So I added additional DLC weapons and found my OP party stuck grinding pixies in a forest.

There are other aspects to this game (crafting, battle pets, etc) but these only slowed the game down further. Overall if you not sure this is the game for you it proabably isn't.

Pros -
Anime / Story

Cons -
Grinding
Poor DLC mix
Graphics
Repititive

It's a good game but the battles get dreadfully slow. To help this spam backspace or RMB to skip battle animations. Also increase the frame rate cap to 60+ fps. To do this right click on the game on your game list > click properties > go to local files > open the .ini file with notepad or something similar and just change the LockWindowFrameRate=30.000000 to 60.000000 or whatever number you want.

It'll probably be fine at first but the battles get slower after a while.

Great game, set game to 60fps in ini to double the game speed though. Too slow otherwise.

If you have ever enjoyed an old-school top-down isometric turn-based tactical strategy RPG like, I don't know.. "Final Fantasy: Tactics", etc.. Then perhaps you ought to pick up this little gem whenever the price is right.

Not to play devil's advocate, but I found this title on the Humble store for only £2.49 in mid-january once the steam sales had cooled down, and I have to admit in spite of the typical JRPG perviness or ultra-sexualisation of near every female character, this boils down to what may be looked back upon as a classic of the genre.

For the price of admission (certainly full price is not recommended) you can expect at least 70 hours worth of enjoyable, if not slightly repetitive gameplay, and of course a New Game+ feature to build upon your previous exploits.

Having played the first in this series, I will certainly be keeping an eye out for Steam sales of the subsequent sequels in future.

Don't be fooled by the "Mostly Positive" review rating on the store page, this game is a huge borefest. Interesting ideas on paper, especially this thing about the game being spread over generations where you play as the sons of the previous gens characters, but when put on action it fails to entertain. Unless you are willing to stand up to the unnecessarily long repetitive battles, the 3-5 music themes this game seems to have playing over and over, and story/dialogues so cliché to anime-type stuff. If you really can't help yourself and for some reason you NEED to try this game out, wait for it to go on sale, I got it for just 2-3 dollars during one of the Steam summer sales and even then I felt like wanting to ask for a refund. It's THAT bad.

파고들기형 SRPG+JRPG

장점

+가볍게 즐길 수 있는 난이도
+여러가지 파고들기 컨텐츠들
+적당히 잡아도 수십시간 보장되는 플레이타임


단점

-게임의 목적을 찾기가 힘듬
-야리코미 플레이가 아니면 재미를 찾기가 힘듬


주의점

PS3, 모바일버전이 한글화되어 있습니다.
스팀버전을 플레이하신다면 정상적인 플레이를 포기하셔야합니다.


이런 분들에게 추천합니다.

야리코미형 게임 플레이 경험은 적으나 입문해보고 싶으신 분


이런 분들에게 비추천합니다.

이미 파고들기형 게임에 익숙하신 분
PS3, 모바일버전으로 플레이하실 분

그냥 대놓고 미연시 야겜으로 나왔으면 더 성공적이였을거다. 오히려 이게 아슬아슬하게 성인등급 안가고 비 성인게임등급을 유지해서 아쉬울 정도.

정작 RPG로서의 게임성? 개나 줘버렸다. 이런걸 5세대에 걸쳐 진행해야 끝을 본다니 내 원 참.(한 세대가 각 한 회차씩을 맏는다. 즉 5세대라면 5회차 플레이다. 마지막 5회차 주인공에게 있어 1회차 주인공은 고조할아버지)

진심 지루하기 그지없는 반복성 플레이와 참신한거 없는 RPG 적 게임성... 뭐 하나 게임으로서 칭찬할만한게 없기에 진심으로 RPG 게임으로서 즐기고자 이 게임을 살 생각이라면 접어라.

다만 장점도 없진 않다. 히로인들의 외모 및 설정, 작중에서 일어나는 상황이나 이벤트, 대사와 바람직한 CG들은 그야말로 온갖 모에요소(혹은 오덕요소)들을 아우르고 그런것들이 18세 성인등급이 될 것 같은데 결국은 넘지 않는 제작사의 저력을 보여준다.

즉 이 게임은 RPG의 탈을 쓴 미연시인 것이다.



결국 이 게임은 성인용 미연시로 나왔어야 할 물건이지 이렇게 스팀에서 비 성인이용가에 평범한 RPG 게임으로 나올 물건이 아니였던 것이다. 그러나 내 바렘대로 나와주지 않았기에 비추한다.

CG 올 오픈을 DLC로 파는 케쉬콤같은 돈독오른 것들!!!(플레이 타임이이 괴랄하게 길고 멀티엔딩이기에 단순 플레이만으로 모든 CG 오픈하는게 사실상 불가능하다. 즉 CG같은거 올 클리어를 원한다면 돈주고 살 수밖에 없다!!!)

일본의 C급 게임 전문회사인 Idea Factory社의 시리즈물입니다. 이 게임의 장점은 PC 로는거의 사장분위기에 있는 일본식 SRPG를 잘 살려냈으며, 캐릭터 일러스트가 나름 볼만하다는 점입니다. Idea Factory는 비슷함 게임을 모바일/콘솔/PC로 판매하면서 박리다매를 하는 느낌을 줍니다.물론 게임성또한 박리다매의 느낌을 지울 수 없다는게 단점입니다.

+ PC에서는 거의 볼 수 없는 일본식 SRPG
+ 나름 괜찮은 일러스트와 2D
- 중2병이 한창 돋는 주인공과 의미없는 하렘
- 모바일 게임에나 어울릴 법한 스킬 이펙트

STOOOOOP!! DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.

As you know J-RPG has failed to develop their quality of contents.

Agarest couldn't escape of that limits.

I am sure you will be required to spend insanely much your time to play for worthless playing contents.

기사(knight)를 soldier로 번역하는 위엄을 보여준다..차라리 일본어 자막도 제공하지 그러냐...

거기다가.. 이 게임.. 쉽게 생각하고 구입하지마라.... 노가다성이 엄청나다...

특히 템 모으기에 맛들이면 그대로 시간 엄청 소모된다..

그리고 한가지... 엄청 노력했는데.. 1회차에 못봐서 2회차에서도 노렸는데..

결국 진루트 못봤다. 그래도 이젠 힘들어서라도 접을란다 이 게임.
