From the void, the gods of darkness and light created Agarest, a most perfect and divine world. As the generations passed, paradise sadly fell to the ravages of time. War darkened the skies and Agarest soon became a torturous hell as the gods divided and immense armies clashed, desecrating the once beautiful...

As with the Origional, Zero is a true work of art. The Generation system is vastly improved from the original, and the affection system adds its own level of stratagy. The gameplay, while at first glance appears simple, is, in a word, "Multi-Layered". Mastering Esoterica and Combination arts is key to not only surviving some of the most difficult battles, but also recieving some of the best items in the game. With that in mind, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the Agarest Wiki that contains truely invaluable information on the game itself.
While i love the game, I have to mention two dissapointments I have in concern to the actual game itself. First, the monster capture and combination system can be a boon to any player. If only for the Title System and the High End items you can get by using it. However, capturing monsters can be a chore sometimes, and often feels like a waste of time due to the grind required to max it out.
Second, the blacksmithing system has one infuriating element that i wish they had eliminated from the origional. That is the Random Item system that occures while smithing. On occasion, while crafting items, instead of the desired item you recieve a random craftable item instead. This still uses the materials, and after 3000 craft attempts, I only recived one item I cared about, or was useful. Instead you generally recive items that are either utterly useless, or are low level and already abundant.
As to the Steam download, it has one major glitch i was unable to remedy. Unfortunatly, there is a glich where on many characters in both conversation scenes and in the gallery, the characters images are obsucered by all the other alternate appearances being layered over eachother at the same time. This takes away from the character and story driven expreance that is essential to any JRPG.
On a possitive note, the Steam DLC is absolutly fantastic. Without it, many cassual gamers may find the baseline grind to level up and aquire both Gold and EP to be a daunting task. After purchasing the DLC it was almost like starting a new game + without ever having to have played the game.
I would recomend this series to anyone who enjoys JRPG's or RPG's in general. For a more epic experience I suggest playing the original and then loading over the completed game data to Zero.
All in all, I'd give this game a solid 9 out of 10.
As a simple footnote I would suggest that due to suggestive sexual content in this game, parental supervison is advised.

Short summary: This is an amazing turn based strategy game with unique weapons, and a huge variety of characters and unlockable skills. This game is similair to fire emblem combat system, and has a cliche but an entertaining story. There are several events, and incorporates the oh so common dating sims the japanese love as well. One of the best part of the game is without a doubt, the creation of your character, where it is a tarot card system, which randomizes your character in the vague direction you build him to be.

Synopsis: Record of Agarest War Zero is the prequel to Record of Agarest War. The tale follows Sieghart, an army commander who gains magical powers from a strange woman named Mimel. Blossoming from this setup, Record of Agarest War Zero is a slow-paced tale treading on familiar territory: the world is in danger and it's up to a small band of warriors to set things right.

Combat: Record of Agarest War Zero's shining light is combat. Moving characters into position like a chess board is a challenging undertaking, but a rewarding one. Depending on which square characters occupy, they can link to other characters to unleash joint attacks with powerful results. But it's the calculated movement of sprites into position that makes exciting battles. While the terrain is flat and backgrounds repetitive, the environment is still a non-factor like the original Agarest War. The strategic requirements of success are fulfilling for all strategy fans. (Battles dish out experience like candy, yet money feels constantly tight.)

Gameplay: The Agarest War series is different from other strategy games is that the story is split over multiple generations. When the curtain finally closes on Sieghart's side of the story, it's his offspring with the maiden-of-highest-regard that carries on the tale into future years. You are also forced to progress along a fixed path, forced to stop at each dot along the way for a battle. These often have no bearing on the plot and are simply there to make the journey from one chapter to the next take as long as possible.(although if the battle does indeed get too tedious, pressing q will turn on auto battle. A word of advice is use it on enemies you will dominate, due to the fact that the auto A.I is not the best.)

Overall, i love this game, while it may say i only have 10 hours or so, i have the rest of the series on my ps3, with a total over 200 hours, a great game focusing on turn based strategy, and dating sim like playthrough.

The Agarest Senki/Agarest War series was always a little out of my comfort zone when it came to RPGs, mostly due to the strategy involved in the fights. Thankfully, they made it easy to figure who to place where to maximize your combo efficiency in battle, plus learning new Secret Arts through trial and error has been a blast!

This is technically the first game in the series, chronologically, but the second game to have been made. This one is a lot more forgiving than the first by means of getting the True Ending, as there are only two generations, so a lot of the original content from the first game that you had to be forced to do to get the True Ending has been streamlined for the second; giving you a lot more time to enjoy the story at a more natural pace.

My one little problem lies in the fact that they seem to reuse character designs and even come close to reusing names as well; namely, the character "Alice" is extremely close if not identical to "Ellis" in name and design both, right down to having a larva as a bodyguard. Sieghart also appears to be in close relation to the main characters of the first game, not to mention a few of the female leads seem to be borrowed concepts, as well. All that aside, however, I greatly recommend this game to everyone, especially if you want to enjoy something a little different in your RPG library!

So... I actually buy this just to support Idea Factory xD It is one of the few companies who make my kind of simulation games after all xD I have only played this for a while and I have never played the first game either... so this is just a quick note for everyone!

Pros:
- Japanese voice acting (I'm a sucker for it xD)
- Cool tactical combo chaining. If you'd like to chain a lot, you'll need to learn how to use this properly! I find it interesting because of the different layout of Extended Areas for each player and that where they are facing affects it. For those who love to challenge themselves and see how far they can go... this is for you!
- Different areas that you can choose where to fight? Not bad!
- The animated sprite (Motion Portrait) makes it a tad bit life-like as they talk.
- Anime-style handsome guys and pretty girls =P
- Free DLCs! Yay!

Cons:
- The tutorial is soooo long TT Well it is good for those who are not used to tactical games... but for me who have played quite a few (e.g. FFTactics, Tactic Ogres, FE), it is one chunk of boring part right at the start. Be patient!
- DLCs right from the start! You become too OPed right from battle number 1 that the last thing to do is saying good-bye to that fun ~ So I would suggest turning off the DLCs or just don't use it!

Who is this game for?
- Those who love Love SImulation games, Tactic battles, Combo chainers, Anime-lovers, or those who, like me, loves Idea Factory!

Cute and fun. I bought the downloadable content first thing though, so I accidently over-powered my weapons and armor to a rediculous level.

This is more of a soft no than a hard one (wish there was a rating system honestly.) The games okay, I rather like the graphics for the most part, and the plot and characters make me want to keep playing. That said the combat is what is making me uninstall it. Just not my thing, and I love these type games.

I'll be honest and say that some of this is probably due to my only 4 hours of play time. But for starters, ingame it is rather poorly explained what the differences between the skills are (why use blast instead of rush, what are my miss chances, is regular damage the same as break damage or is that only for filling the break meter, that sort of thing). The details screen you can pull up really explains very little. I could live with this really. What lost me though the linking system. I just really don't like this mechanic, makes fights feel far longer and less tactical than they should. Felt like I spent all my time looking for glowing squares for linking people and trying to maximize the number of combos in the action screen I could pull off than trying to outsmart/outposition the enemy and make use of terrain. Doesn't help that the view needs tilted up a few more degrees, it's rather hard to make stuff out sometimes even with changing the direction.

I really want to like this game, but it's just not happening.

I love RPG games and it's hard to find a good RPG game. This game has all aspects of a good and maybe even great RPG in my opinion. The graphics are great even from the screenshots. Storyline is very well made. I love the creative idea of chain attacks. Reminds me so much of a lot of good turn based with movement in them. If you people out there love Fire Emblem, I really do suggest you try this game out. Affections and custom character creation was a neat idea and this whole game just has so much to explore.

If you like torturing yourself with bad story, repetitive combat, and rock metal riffs on 20 second loops then Agarest: Zero is the game for you.

Playing this game is nothing less than a face-melting chore. Even the harem of wanton anime chicks you gather on your forgettable escapade do nothing to make the experience less excruciating.

What's even more painful is how obvious it is that the game wants to be some intense strategy RPG. Agarest is a prime example on how flashy combos and special attack portrait cut-ins don't make a game exciting. In fact, the game punishes you for being halfway proficient at it. Keep animations turned on and you have to wait minutes at a time for combos to complete. Turn them off and you're playing Watching Damage Floaters: The Game The RPG.

Don't get this game

Having a hankering for a RPG I ended up picking up this title to scratch the urge. Am I disappointed? Yes.

The storyline is bland and generic and offers nothing intriguing or exciting to the player. At this stage I barely know what my goal is (other than looking after Mimel and picking up more (female) characters to add to my party) and I've no desire to find out. The parts that talk about the storyline are tedious and bland at best and ultimately unfulfilling for the player. A solid RPG should have the player wanting to know what the next twist in the game is; Agarest fails to deliver on that aspect. Considering playing on feels like a chore that I want to avoid doing at all costs.

The tutorial barely gives you the bare bones of combat which is simple enough to pick up despite being poorly mapped, and the character creation part is totally left uninformed. The player absolutely doesn't know what to do without the help of a guide and to be honest I have no idea what on earth I picked for the MC, Sieg. Combat gets boring and repetitive quickly. If you're a player who dislikes grinding there's no worry as you're forced to grind and play through fights just to get anywhere on the map.

Speaking of characters, the characters of the game are bland, dull and boring with predictable, mundane personalities. There's a womaniser without a hint of charm, a little mysterious childish girl and then there's the MC who is the equivalent of bread without butter. The voice acting and somewhat pretty character designs aren't enough to carry the personalityless characters through with the bland script. Another part of the game which is a little more fun is the dating aspect where you woo the ladies you pick up for your party. However, Fire Emblem: Awakening offers the same kind of game as Agarest but with a better script, a easier to follow plot and interesting characters.

For the most part, Agarest has a lacklustre script and a poor combat system which ultimately lets the full game down. A much more interesting story with more engaging characters is the minimum this game would need to carry it through with the current combat system. The pixel graphics are somewhat charming, at the very least.

My overall opinion? I wish I could refund this game and would do so in a heart beat if I was able to.

Agarest Zero is the prequel to Agarest: Generations of War. People who played the old Agarest will find that a few things have changed.

Starting with the good improvements. A fast-forward option during dialogue, fully turn-based dungeons with no more analog crawling or suprise encounters, and a slightly more informative esoteric book. A simplified version of the original Agarest is build into the game, and can be unlocked if you play NG+ on hard. As long as you get True End in the Zero universe, you will unlock True End in the Agarest vanilla universe automatically. You can unlock various vanilla characters and combine them into your zero party for maximum choice.

There are bad points too. For one, there are only two generations instead of five, although unlike Leonheardt who was stuck with a sword, you will have some control over Sieghart's weapon. The True End mechanic is also different, it being dependent on relationship scores and less than a handful of crucial storyline choices. You will not unlock the true ending unless you are familiar with dating sims; it is possible to get all nine women in the group to love you maximally, but unless you get somewhere close to that you won't get the true ending. The game is faster-paced due to less generations, but not fast-paced enough to warrent repeated crapshoots on the dating sim mechanic only to find out that you fail true end again and again. If you follow the True End guide for Zero on Agarest Wiki to a tee, it is a linear process and you can unlock it. But then Sieghart/Leonis will not feel like they have any consistent preference or personality. It will just be hardcore pragmatic metagaming.

On an important tangent, this game may be a little bit less friendly to female gamers than the vanilla game, because of the much more increased emphasis on the dating sim aspect. Women-to-women conversations in this game are also more superficial than vanillla. Female gamers can consider themselves warned.

It is a game with pros and cons, but if you liked the original Agarest then you might as well get Zero because it comes with a simplified version of the original game plus the interface improvements.

Agarest Zero reminds me a lot of FF Tactics and Fire Emblem Awakening, if not slightly slower paced. I can see how the game might drag at certain points, and some of the 'crafting' systems appear a bit opaque. All that said, there really aren't very many options for PC in this genre, so you need to take what you can get! If you like turn-based tactical JRPGs, then this is a reasonably good game to get (especially if you can grab it on sale).

I played Record Of Agarest War first on xbox 360 when it had come out.
i had enjoyed maybe over 20 hours of gameplay, and never saw a return do to overwhelming RPGS at the time.
i was reluctant to see Agarest: Generations Of War Zero, on sale, and thought "why the hell not, the first was pretty good"
This one is much better.
-JRPG/Strategy/"Tactics" game.
-better graphics (character models and such) then its previous title
-Characters seem more enjoyable, and livly. (plus all the females are adorable just saying ^_^)
-Delightful anime inspired theatrics and story/Characters
-many hours to play, let alone the crafting of thousands of items and equipment to better your characters.

-First part of story(others later on) you grow as a character and will find love with another character that will determine your childs (next part in story) abilities and characteristics. [this is a neat element that it brings, since you shape it as the story enfolds]

If you want a JRPG that is heaviily inspired by anime and eastern culture, This might be for you.
Ive enjoyed it thus far, and plan to contine even further as there is a lot of abilities/equipment/character shaping, to how you want them to all react with another in battle.
