From the moment I started playing this game I knew it was going to be terrible. Firstly there's too much talking right at the beginning; nothing like a good solid paragraph to start out a game. Then every character speaks in Japanese and then its translated to English in the text box below, there is no way to turn off the animated speaking which was infuriating to listen to. I don't want to sit their and listen to some random dialog that I cant understand and pretend that I think its neat. Its just annoying. Then when the first fight FINALLY begins it can only get worse. The animation for the models of the Champions are SO BAD I mean it looks like an 8-bit game being re-made from xbox. The champions waddle up to their enemies and seem to attack with a 2-frame atk scene. DO NOT EVEN RENT THIS GAME, I thought it looked like an FF game and it is not even close to even Fire Emblem. AWEFUL GAME!

I started playing this game with no knowledge of the Record of Agarast War series, and was pleasantly surprised and challenged by the game. The hardest part of the game is the Character Creation, which I spent a good hour+ fiddling with.
Challenging, even when you lose it makes you want to try a different tactic.
Feels like 2 games in one with the 1st and 2nd Generation aspect.
Unforgiving mechanics, Not a good game for an Strategy RPG starter.
Impossible to defeat boss fights without lots of Revives and/or DLC items.
very slow pace storyline and sometimes gameplay.
Not easy to substitute a party member for one you haven't used.
If you love JRPGs or Strategic RPGs this is one for you. If you new to this kind of game, I would suggest another and revisit this one.
