“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.”

About This Game

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Agarest is one of my all-time favorite strategy RPG, and favorite of those available on PC.

Gameplay is a lot of fun, especially if you enjoy having a lot of characters to choose from to form your party, each differing from others by the weapon they use, their skill slots and their unique passive abilities and special attacks. Character customization is fairy extensive, allowing you not just select characters’ weapons and armor and allocate their level-up points, but also select exact skills the characters will have available, and choosing skills that will allow your characters to form powerful combination attacks is important for winning.

There is also extensive item and skill-crafting system, and every next-tier item and skill you want to use has to be crafted rather than bought in the next town’s shop. Though once the initial crafting is performed, all skills and some items can be bought from the stores if you want more copies of them.

Story and character-wise, Agarest is definitely among the best games I’ve played. Each character in a very large cast has very distinct personality, and most of them defy standard RPG tropes. And with the story spanning multiple generations, it is interesting to see how long-living characters interact with the descendants of the person they once knew.

The story also leaves the player plenty of choice: there are multiple story branches in each generation, as well as more numerous event where your choice affect your relationship with three potential love interests, determining which of them you can marry in the end of generation (the story is about protagonist’s goals being carried on by his descendants, after all ~.^ ).

In short, I fully recommend Agarest to all RPG fans, particularly the fans of strategy RPGs!

Pre-Release Review
Posted: November 25, 2013
JRPG's are not for everyone, and unlike Final Fantasy or Tales, Agarest: Generations of War is not something I would expect a non-JRPG fan to enjoy. Luckily, I am one.

Generations of War, even though the concept of dating sim/turn based RPG sounds horrible, it is actually pretty good. The game offers so much choice to the player. Who you can marry, how you want a particular battle to go, and which lovely lady you can choose to woo over. You can easily get well over 100 hours in this game, and barely scratch the surfce.

However, this game has it's drawbacks. Most of the time, events and "quests" are spilt up by numerous and tedious battle stages, that work out like a board game. There are far to many of these, even just in the short part of the first generation. However, this is good for leveling up your characters, and if you complete these battles quick enough, you get a nice little bonus at the end. Sadly, for me this just makes it an experience I force myself to enjoy.

All in all, Generations of War tries to be different from all the other JRPG's on the market, and it is. It just tries to make it's self too different, when all it needed was some generic JRPG nonsense.

+ Interesting combination of dating sim/RPG. It's not horrible, honest.
+ You get your money's worth. Hunderds of hours of content.
+ Awesome anime gallery.

- Story is very generic
- Alot of repetiton
- Player interation is very linear. We can mould the story, not the world.

One of my favorite tile-based strategy games (I've played FF tactics, fire emblem, and a few others). Very long campaign (at least 100 hours of gameplay) with good replay value (if you have the willpower to do it again in new game+). The story is interesting and should keep you entertained. The hard difficulty setting is challenging and requires a good amount of strategy (and exp grinding at some points). Good amount of customization and options for all your characters. Cool skill animations with a good mix of 2d/3d art. The romance in the game is pretty tame and doesnt detract from the story all that much. The only downsides I can think of is that it is a little rough around the edges and may be too repetitive for some people, but, overall, I think it's a solid game for a solid price.

Hi everyone, here is the review for Agarest: GOW

To start with, this game is essentially a mix between a tactical role-playing game, visual novel and dating sim, all in anime style presentation.

Features of this game:

1. Deep tactical chess board type battles
2. Party movement based on a world map
3. Story told in visual novel form
4. Wooing of girls occurs in choices and cutscenes

Things that I liked about this game:

1. Battles require strategy and planning
2. The art is attractive
3. Ability to customize party member's gear and stats
4. Character personalities are interesting
5. Solid storyline spanning lots of hours
6. Multiple endings
7. Dating sim is a nice distraction
8. DLC makes things alot easier if you are playing just for the storyline
9. Polished with very few bugs
10. Total Japanese voice acting

Things that I thought could be better:

1. Learning curve is steep. Instruction manual is good to read but not included in the game
2. High possibility for grinding on first play through. This can be avoided after learning how to play the game, but more guidance on this would have been helpful.
3. Dating aspect more a distraction in this game, could have been more fleshed out
4. Unexpected spike in end game difficulty
5. As an older game, the resolution isnt as crisp
6. Music slightly repetitive only because of the countless hours spent in game

Overall, if you are a fan of anime art, visual novel story-telling and tactical role-playing battles with a bit of dating sim, I recommend this game to you

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 40+ hours I am still only half way through Generation 2 (out of 5) and I am finding the repetative nature of the combat quite tiresome. Initially I had soem seriously overpowered weapons in my inventory (some dlc or preorder bonus) which I disabled so it wouldn't spoilt he 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 repetative, 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). It would be far more enjoyable if the party had to split at points to spice things up and force you into using different characters.

The inventoy/crafting/enhancing is quite complicated (complicated rather than complex), it is difficult to make stuff. 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; quite tiresome.

This game is looking like it will be 100+ hours to complete, I really hope it's less as that's alot of time to get out of it the things I am enjoying.

The question isn't "Is this a good game?" as it is and it has alot of things I enjoy, the question is "Is this worht the time?" and I'm not sure I can say a 100% yes to the last question. I don't fully not reccomend this game but nor can I reccomend it toally either.

Agarest is a shining example of JTRPG - Japanese Torture RPG

----

(TL;DR? Now that I have done my playthrough, you can skip to the end of this review and find my summary, updates are left here to show how I got to those bullet points)

----

Total playtime (so far): 50 hours.

- Time spent researching how to craft a skill/weapon on wikia: 15 hours.

- Time spent dealing with endless and often pointless battles: 15 hours.

- Time spent trying to keep characters on roughly the same level: 5 hours.

- Time spent navigating between shop/blacksmith/adventurer guild just to build an item: 5 hours.

- Time spent loading old save because blacksmith can randomly fail alchemy (this is a feature): 2 hours.

This left me with less than 10 hours of actual enjoyable gameplay, even less was spent on character development and plotline. Given the complexity of Agarest's various gameplay system, it's a real shame to find none of them produce the joy they intended.

So in the end, this is more like a piece of torture porn than anything else: Do it only if you are into this kind of stuff.

(unfortunately for me, 10+ years of JRPG experience has taught me the patience required to enjoy such sadistic gameplay, so expect update when I actually finish this damn game...)

Update on 75 hours mark.

Finally done with 2nd generation (3 more to go), let me add some more comments:

1. Auto-battle is crucial yet miserable: there are many instances where you wish AI can take over the manual labor. But leaving it to its own devices, will consistently turn cakewalk battles into deadly struggles (no XP rewards for casualties).

2. Seriously, you need a true end guide: as with most role-playing, it might be tempting to play this game "your way". But Agarest couldn't care less about your preference, you will, because of the tight requirement for CG/event trigger, miss out on 50~80% of actual content.

3. Less than 10% players ever manage to get the achievement for completing 2nd generation (just completing it will grant you that achievement). I think this goes to show many reviewers have not given this game a long hard look before recommending...

4. Story-wise, Agarest is an ok game, there are moments that will redeem your manual labor (once again, use guide, or it may just be manual labor). Though I personally prefer more character development instead of "more new characters"...

My verdict still holds though: this is a game for the persistent fools, such as myself.

Update on 110 hours mark.

With Gen 3 over, time for some personal thought:

1. Auto-battle is useless at this point. AI controlled team will pile on the same monster, over-overkilling it for no good reason, leaving the rest of enemies free to attack.

2. Avoid battles as much as possible, there is no fun in setting up the same combo routine every time.

3. Stop grinding for levels, under normal difficulty just a minimal walkthrough will give you enough experience, given you stick with the same 4/5 non-heroine members.

4. On the other hand, spend some quality time on crafting and researching, they bring in far more stats than leveling up. And save before handing your hard-earned materials to blacksmith's random algorithm.

5. Number of players managed to finish Gen 3? 3.5% of total players.

6. Oh yes, there are unlockable CGs to fill my sored & empty heart, but the requirements are often strict and weird: this heroine has too high an affection for you, so you DON'T get to see her CG, what?

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...)

Alright, onwards to Gen 4.

-----

Review summary (on 158 hours mark).

I have finally got to the true ending (on normal mode), it's time to reflect on my journey with Agarest.

What I Like:

- The subtitle "Generations of War" is aptly named, this game does deliver a sense of longevity as player battles through continents.

- Vast number of well-designed characters.

Unfortunately, these seemingly strong points result in larger flaws, both in terms of core mechanics and plot narrative:

- It should have been 30 hours, by spanning battles throughout 5 generations, only 1.7% of all players manage to got to an ending, less than half of them got to the true ending.

- 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.

- When you have 5 Lead Actors and 15 Lead Actresses, lost of focus is unavoidable. Just as I got attached to a hero, another came along to replace him, in the end none of them really sticked with me.

- Agarest doesn't like players finding out their totally-awesome super-secret heroine events, unless you follow the perfect path to true ending, be prepared to miss out on a lot of them (I got only 49% after true end). Sadly number of unlockables != replay value.

- 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.

In the end, these drawbacks are bad enough to stop me from playing the next game in Agarest series (even though I have already bought it), at least not for now...

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.

Okay bro, so let's say y'all wanna get fresh with an anime. Like, I ain't judging here, it's cool. If a dude wants to shag a cartoon then God bless his weird ♥♥♥♥ and ♥♥♥♥ed-up worldview. But then you gotta ask yourself "damn bro, how am I gonna make this foxy cartoon broad wanna handle my balls"? That is not an easy question, man, but this game provides you an answer. You gotta click the right buttons and say the answers to things. Then the anime gals will ♥♥♥♥in' dig your weird comma-sized ♥♥♥♥. They gonna be straight up riding it like the guy in that movie where the guy rides a bomb or whatever. Point is, this is without a doubt one of the most intriguing cartoon romance simulacrums out there. It's got all kinds of animes. The angry one, the boring one, the furry one, the other one. There is no limit to the depravity you can inflict upon yourself as you struggle to romance a cartoon. I guess you can also thrash some ♥♥♥♥ with a sword or whatever, maybe make an elf cast a spell. Elves ♥♥♥♥in' love spells. Can't get enough of them. And when you bang your favorite manga, you get to have a freakish nightmare-baby, like in Eraserhead, except instead of flippin' out and wrecking the lights, the baby just gets some stats and ♥♥♥♥, and then he has to marry an anime. Nobody ever said pimpin' was easy.

SCORE:
Graphics: 10/10. You will not BELIEVE the amount of anime underwear you're gonna be seeing here. You like pantyshots? We got'em, it's like a pantyshot discount warehouse. Sick.
Sound: 4/10. I dunno why, but everyone speaks in this really ♥♥♥♥ed up accent. It barely even matches what the dialogue text at the bottom says. Are the voice actors ♥♥♥♥ing British or something? Not cool, "mate".
Gameplay: 7/10. Your swords can level up, you can level up, your Anime Bangin' Factor can level up. Lots of levelling up, lots of swords, lots of hentais. Pretty nasty. The Jappies are still pervos.

FINAL SCORE: 8/10
YOU MIGHT LIKE THIS GAME IF...
You jerk off to anime pornos.
