    Most unbalanced strategy game I've seen

    Rated on December 16, 2012 by ChaosIncarnate

    This game is amazingly unbalanced. Just to be clear I enjoy hard games and I own nearly 20 turn based strategy games. But I will not get far in this one. It is not hard, it's broken. At level...

    At the Moment of conception, Agarest War is a SRPG that deserves recognition.

    It's not anything over the top unique, but it is fun to play.

    So I am completely re-reviwing this because it completely deserves it. Story: The story is long and multi-directional. Though the path is linear, how you get to the end is very multi-faceted. No...

    Rated on October 18, 2010 by pokis21

    This game has many wonderful quirks to it. I found myself laughing out loud (literally) at many points in the story line. While it can be ludicrous and outright overplayed, it still has a strange abil...
