Very Good

JRPG Masterpiece; Not for Everyone

First off, this is a hardcore JRPG (Japanese Role Playing Game). This isn't something like final fantasy or the like.

For the Review
This game has many good qualities. Gameplay is solid, graphics are solid, and overall voice acting is great. Although, these types of graphics may tend to steer some gamers away from this game. Also, the gameplay is meant to make you grind..ALOT. For those willing to take the time and effort, will see the effects with powerful weapons and awesome abilities. Also, a dating-sim aspect is included in the storyline as you must choose one heroine to bride with and have a child which will continue the story.

There are flaws to this game though. As I mentioned before...Grinding is a major part of producing super ultra powerful characters. You may spend days at a time just to get a certain weapon or get to a certain level. Also, bosses will stress you to the point where you may turn off your system without saving or even throwing your controller out the window (Just an example).

The main point I have to make to gamers who look at this game, please, if you are not a fan of JRPG's, don't rate it because you don't like it, but rather find something you prefer better. And to those JRPG maniacs out there, please buy the game, you will spend eternity leveling up your characters so you may find renting this game for multiple weeks on end.

Story 8
Gameplay 7
Graphics 8
Characters 9.5
Replayability: Hard enough to get through one playthrough, but yes.
Overall 8/10

Remember kids, don't judge a game by it's cover...most of the time. >.<

Record of Agarest War Zero brings indulging combat, an amazing soundtrack, and an involving story to the table of Tactical RPG's. The game is loaded with a ton of gallery portraits, items, and weapons to collect for the hardcore players but this title is definitely not recommended to gamers who aren't fans of the genre. However, fans of the first title or gameplay shouldn't expect anything less than a great, enjoyable, and lengthy game.
