Excerpt: It's a shame when a video game can elicit both incredibly positive and ridiculously negative feelings within a gamer in just a matter of hours. Such is the case with Record of Agarest War 2 , an ambitious effort that attempts to create a compelling JRPG experience. While the game most certainly manages to do exactly that, Agarest War 2 also suffers from flaws so glaring that you'll constantly ask yourself if you even want to get through the rest of the game.
Excerpt: Have you ever played a series that you wish was better because the concept seems so great? Every now and then I get that feeling while playing a game for review. A series like Agarest War, in which you play multiple generations of heroes within the same RPG, seems like such a unique concept that I couldn't help but be intrigued when I first heard about it. Sadly, I played Record of Agarest War Zero and was less than impressed by the final product.
