Every time a new Agarest game comes out, I'm told it's better than the previous one.

Summary: The problem is, they keep getting progressively worse. The battle system in this one is so godawful I couldn't stand playing the game for more than a couple of hours, especially with the dull characters and dialogue.
Summary: I played Agarest Zero and Agarest One or whatever it's classified as, and I loved them both, they were amazing. I won't lie I didn't get very far into 2, the story line was awesome, and that's all that hooked me. The combat had been changed so much I hardly recognized it, I also disliked how in a combo if I hit a button to attack I had to keep hitting that same button over and over, despite it not doing much damage.
Summary: To start, I have never played any of the Agarest games prior to this, but I have played all of the Final Fantasies, quite a few of the Tales games, all of the Star Oceans, I'm an avid Guild Wars, WoW, and Rift player, so I'm in no way new to the RPG world. This game immediately disappointed me in the fact that it's completely Japanese spoken and English sub-titled. There is also WAY too much dialogue. This made it extremely hard for me to even want to get into the story.
