Excerpt: It’s unfortunate that the battle system of Agarest 2 was so poorly handled; with a better tutorial, less grinding and maybe a free movement option, it could have been something quite novel and engaging, but as it stands, there isn’t a whole lot to carry it, and even less to draw new players in with its combat mechanics. The lag in battles is also troubling, but is less of an issue. But, despite all these flaws, I can still see the appeal in Record of Agarest War 2 .
Pros: Excellent 2D art and 3D models, lots of play time
Cons: Confusing battle system, unoriginal story, too much grinding
