    Are all the games in this series alright? I keep hearing that this series is utter crap, but they have released a couple of them so there should be at least one decent game in there.

    • Trotmeister

      Yes, these games are a horrible crap. Paid full price for Agarest Zero back when it came out on PS3, feel ripped off now. It’s not worth a single freaking dollar.

    • EinMugenTenshin

      They are ok. However they require some early DLC to avoid grinding, which was a huge drawback in the PS3 versions, etc. (you usually are given this in the PC version for pre-ordering). Also you kinda need to know what to do a lot of the time, or be forced to grind to compensate for your lacking skill level. It is not the new Skyrim, but if you know where to put your skillpoints you’d have a game worth those 16€.

      As a diehard JRPG fan, I have to say, the games are not good at all. The battles are tedious, grindy, and have no balance whatsoever. Most enemy bosses in the later half of the game literally will overkill your characters by 1000 times their HP, and your only strategy is literally finding sacrificial lambs to get killed over and over as you build your SP bar for all your characters to do their ultimate moves at once and hope the boss die in 1 go, if not, rinse and repeat.

      The positive things I can say about the Agarest series are tbat the characters and story are great and interesting and is what forced me to grind through its tedious horrible gameplay. Compile Heart has some really amazing character artists, but their game designers needs some major work.

      Ironically Agarest War 2 was somewhat enjoyable for me cause they changed the entire battle system. It still has the problems of the previous game where there is only a singular strategy, but at least the battles are actually somewhat fun. Yet from what I’ve seen, most Agarest fans hated 2 and loved the other games I hated.

    Now RoAW 2 is where it’s really at, so I hope that comes to Steam too.
