“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.”

关于这款游戏

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?

Free DLC included

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.

69 hours and I hated them all. The combat almost never changes - characters progress at a snail's pace and you're almost always using the same tactics and abilities. 5 acts needlessly lengthen the game, with red herring story plots that go nowhere and an extremely touchy system which judges whether or not you are worthy of YET MORE MONOTONOUS COMBAT BEYOND THE END OF THE GAME. The characters are horrible, the generations system will screw you, and if you are in this for the lure of the generational rpg aspect as I was, please, watch a let's play, see how long and awful this thing is for yourself, and just say no.

Agarest: Generations of War is a JRPG with a rather interesting concept. The game takes place over several generations. It would have been nice to see the world evolve as time passes. Unfortunately, that never happens and the world is very much static despite the hundred year gap from start to end (give or take, the game never really mentions how much time passes). The whole generations thing boils down to the ability to determine the stats/abilities of the main hero of each generation through which brides you pick.

The rest of the story isn't much to speak of. It is all fairly generic stop the evil forces plot. This isn't helped by the characters that are all one-note and there are no surprises along the way. Most of the characters even completely lose their reason for joining in the first place once the generation they join in is over; most of them follow you to further generations because "reasons." The brides of each generation aren't helped that you know the second they join that their purpose is to fall for the hero (the degree of which depends on mostly dialogue choices) to create the next hero.

The combat could make up for all of that but it has its own issues. At the start of the game you begin with some end game items for whatever reason that trivialize the first couple generations. If used, you won't get the chance to understand how to fully use the combat, but if not used battles can take forever to finish (I played on Hard).

To properly fight in this game, you need to constantly use your links. Basically, every character has link spots in set patterns from where they are. If another character is on that space, you can attack with them when either character's turn comes up plus you can combine their abilities for considerably more damage. You can link your entire team like that and this becomes mandatory later on, especially for bosses. It gives the game some strategy but enemies can counter the entire mechanic by killing characters (easily done in single attacks on Hard) or using abilities with knock back, both of which can ruin your links.

There was a lot of potential going into this game but every aspect of the story falls flat and the combat can take forever even discounting enemies ruining your big damage moves. At least grinding isn't necessary (unless you want to level up a previously unused character which isn't too bad) and once things are properly set up in battles, you can take out bosses in one giant attack.

This game just makes you go through lots of battles over and over and over again and tries to trick people into thinking its content.

It's like watching NASCAR; it's the same exact thing over and over and over again.

If you are considering purchasing this game, check out Disgaea before you buy. I think you will like it much more.

Many people have already given an essay of why this game is good or bad. If you need to know anymore then what i'll be covering, you are free to read others. This will be a short review on my thoughts of the game. (Note at this moment i'm only a little more than halfway through the game at 63 hours)

I've played many Jrpg's in my time from the well known final fantasy, dragon quest, kingdom hearts and soon Legend of Heroes:Trails in the Sky. Let me say this first if you are reading this never having played a jrpg, or any kind of rpg for that matter. Stop what you are doing and think if a game that most likely will be spent grinding experience, currency for weapons or armour, etc... is what you want.

That out of the way anyone with experience with Jrpg's should pick up this game especially when on sale for what $4.99? Jrpg fans should already know what they are getting into. The story is while not it's strongest suit, is somewhat linear, and anime trope heavy, but it is still very satisfying in my opinion. The story is delivered in a visual novel presentaion with some choices(routes to take, people to marry). The combat style is reminiscent of games like Disgaea, and Final Fantasy Tactics. The music, oh the music, this alone is what probably kept me going through this game. This Ost is one of my favorites in gaming. The fast beat tracks kept me on edge, the slower solemn tracks were able to create a great atmosphere.

All in all this is a great game that delivers in practically every place needed. If you are still undecided, then i believe you should wait until a sale for the game to arrive, but do not skip this game.

I wish Steam would implement a "Neutral" button... this game does really not deserve either a positive or negative review.

The combat is fun and engaging, but sometimes it gets tedious since you have to go through loads of the same generic enemy battles at times.

Character design and generally speaking, the plot is really your average MOE anime stuff. Some of the tsunderes in this game are SO over the top! And the outfits and innuendos are always there to keep the game "classy".

The best feature of the game is the "generation concept" and some high points are in the interactions with the chosen love interest...

That being said, I personally found Agarest War Zero to be a better game overall. Still not the best SRPG around though.

Played both on console, the Steam version doesn't seem to differ much, aside from some OP DLC you get included.
If you can grab it for under £5.00, and you're into JRPGs (or are just looking for some stereotypical straigh dating sim), then why not!

Agarest isn't a terrible RPG but overall it is quite a grind. The battles themselves aren't interesting after a while since you're pretty much fighting against the same enemies over and over again.

Throughout the game you're supposed to make choices within the game that effects how your potential mates will feel about you. However I don't get to make a choice until after a few hours of playing. This in turn makes the game feel very slow and tedious.

In fact, many of the things in the game that seem to be fun aren't reached until after a bunch of tedious battles.

Did I say this game was a grind? Well if you don't mind having to grind your way through the entire game then this game is for you.

Here's my short gameplay video:

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.

+ 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.

Many people have already given an essay of why this game is good or bad. If you need to know anymore then what i'll be covering, you are free to read others. This will be a short review on my thoughts of the game. (Note at this moment i'm only a little more than halfway through the game at 63 hours)

I've played many Jrpg's in my time from the well known final fantasy, dragon quest, kingdom hearts and soon Legend of Heroes:Trails in the Sky. Let me say this first if you are reading this never having played a jrpg, or any kind of rpg for that matter. Stop what you are doing and think if a game that most likely will be spent grinding experience, currency for weapons or armour, etc... is what you want.

That out of the way anyone with experience with Jrpg's should pick up this game especially when on sale for what $4.99? Jrpg fans should already know what they are getting into. The story is while not it's strongest suit, is somewhat linear, and anime trope heavy, but it is still very satisfying in my opinion. The story is delivered in a visual novel presentaion with some choices(routes to take, people to marry). The combat style is reminiscent of games like Disgaea, and Final Fantasy Tactics. The music, oh the music, this alone is what probably kept me going through this game. This Ost is one of my favorites in gaming. The fast beat tracks kept me on edge, the slower solemn tracks were able to create a great atmosphere.

All in all this is a great game that delivers in practically every place needed. If you are still undecided, then i believe you should wait until a sale for the game to arrive, but do not skip this game.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

END OF REVIEW :)

我花的最值的16刀。
完全体现了日式战棋游戏的精髓。多个伙伴选择(还可以抓怪物做队友),超多的技能,超多的技能组合、连击系统。
独特的链接系统,只要站位好,就可以扭转战局。
另外还有装备合成、技能合成等要素。节奏不算慢。剧情有分支选择。
缺点:剧情过长。。。进入战斗后不能逃跑。
强烈推荐给有时间的战棋爱好者。
PS:其实整个游戏里没有几张福利图~

让我们打开这款游戏的全球成就排名Agarest: Generations of War的全球排名 ,可以看到,达到【The Fifth】这个成就的人只有寥寥无几的【1.8%】,而这个成就是完成第五关之后给予的成就,可想而知有多少人把这款游戏拿来+1了。
-------------------------吐槽来了!---------------------
  • 英语字幕,日语配音,听着太违和...于是就有了后面的问题...
  • 作死使用汉化补丁强力覆盖之后,验证文件完整性木有问题但是所有的成就无法解锁,然后会解锁所有的武器和防具,会拥有大量的经验点数...简直就是碾压各种大小怪...
  • 这是07在PS3上初次发布的游戏,之后在2013年移植到PC上,但是这个画面...我摸着不大的良心告诉你们不如03年发布的仙剑奇侠传三我是仙剑骨灰粉;)
  • 这游戏徽章我是真的醉了!八个女主角!一个男主角!偏偏徽章给那个男主角的!我一开始以为1级是汉子,后面几级是妹子,阿西吧,后面几级就是给汉子的徽章换了个颜色!
  • 我是在一个月前的二次元打折上面买的,75%off,感觉还凑合,原价买的洗洗睡...
----------------------说说好坏---------------------------
  • 大概玩了两章不要鄙视我,我已经是前6.6%了...,剧情还算可以,有点老套吧,就是
    【一个颜值还算可以的消瘦型小受型小哥,拯救了一个拥有主角光环的女一号loli,然后去抢一个什么镯子,一路上各种没羞没躁的艳遇,大概就是这样了...打来打去,玩到第二章也就这样了...】
  • 战斗系统还算不错,类似仙4的出战循序,利用SP和AP点数进行攻击和治疗,合理规划即可。不像仙剑系列鸡肋的合击系统,【合击系统是本作的绝对亮点】,简单明了,战斗力爆表。但是在战斗中使用鼠标选择斜角方向的敌人时候,会非常的难选择到,我正确选择一次的概率大概是1/3或者1/4
  • 大型的战略地图和小型的CG界面来回切换算是比较好的设计,但是在大地图上面移动一开始突出一个迷糊,来回点不知道怎么移动...
这游戏貌似在二次元里面口碑还不错?但是对于我这个半路出家的实在是不感冒,勉强给个好评吧...
综上,老游戏重制PC版的没见长进,趁着打折入手买卡片合背景就好了...

移植作品,画风估计有人喜欢有人觉得一般,此作主要就是看剧情,但是无脑的低端战斗时间可以占到百分之九十以上的时间,我甚至玩了4个小时还没打通第一代的剧情,这游戏N代加一起,估计100个小时都玩不完,这还是打了DLC的版本,依赖最好的装备各种一回合秒杀小怪。
游戏优化的不是太好,进入战斗画面时会顿卡,移植缘故`三大妈有汉化看不懂英文直接去下个用也行不会造成损失,正版可用。
这作游戏估计比较符合男性(俺 )阿宅们的口味,反正我(あたし)是觉得一般,不过卡片和社区用品奇贵,打折的时候入了挂个卡片就能回本,
相信自己人品的合徽章拿20刀背景也不错,这个背景刚出的时候好像都卖100多来着。

你说这游戏是策略类?明明是后宫gal
好吧,用了9个小时打通了一世代。
说实话我刚刚玩这款游戏是为了快速通关的,因为发现装了DLC简直就是装了一个作弊器。没办法到后面就直接关掉了DLC
战斗的节奏太慢了,以至于我在晚上玩这款游戏的时候差点睡着。
终于打败一世代的最终boss我以为终于结束了。
然后看到剧情说还有4根柱子,顿时就明白了什么。也就是说我还需要再打4代这样的过程。好像真是拖时间的设定啊。
人设倒是不错,只看一世代的话,战士、盗贼、骑士的设定,傲娇,大小姐。
也许是我日呆游戏玩的少,每次选项和我的初衷都有出入啊!
嘛 ,为了这个游戏的背景也要给好评!不过不确定后面4代能不能玩得下去。。。
