Agarest: Generations of War (known as Records of Agarest War in North America) is a rather unique Japanese RPG which focusses on the protagonist reproducing with fellow characters.
|5||Record of Agarest War is a strategy role-playing game (SRPG) developed by three studios - Idea Factory, Red Entertainment and Compile Heart - and originally released in Japan three years ago. The game was recently brought over to North America by Aksys Games. Aksys clearly had a specific audience in mind when marketing Agarest, placing an emphasis on the dating slim elements and skimpy anime girls, hence the "Really Naughty Limited Edition" for Xbox 360. Strangely, the actual game places less focus on the dating ("Soul Breeding") portions than players might expect after watching the trailers, or looking at the cover art. Instead, Record of Agarest War puts players through an extremely long, drawn out campaign full of random, unavoidable encounters, an awkward battle system, and a convoluted story that ultimately amounts to little in the way of fun. |
