Excerpt: Well, it was said of the other Generation of Chaos game that came to American PSPs that it’d be better with an in-game tutorial. This one has that, thank God, and selectable difficulty levels. Though, its rating stays the same because it’s still essentially the same game, just a year later.
Excerpt: Aedis Eclipse: Generation of Chaos is a great comeback for the series. The first entry, which appeared on the PSP last year, was a slow, clumsy and confusing experience. Taking the criticism to heart, Idea Factory went back and retooled the gameplay, promoting a terrible experience to a good one.
Excerpt: Presentation is one of the better things Generation of Chaos has going for it. Character sprites are big and show off nice variety. Each unit has its own look that makes identifying them on the battlefield easy to do. Maps and battlefields are a little muddled, but still look good.
Excerpt: Generation of Chaos is a real-time strategy RPG developed by Idea Factory, and the first title to be published by NIS America for the PSP. Released in late February of 2006, Generation of Chaos is a very unique strategy-RPG that patient hardcore fans of the genre should really enjoy.
Conclusion: I wish I could report in and say that Aedis Eclipse is leaps and bounds better than Generation of Chaos but sadly I can't. The gameplay does fair a tad better with the same amount of depth and improved functionality but random events and terrible AI keep the experience relatively stagnant.
Summary: The world of Aedis Eclipse is divided into three worlds, the divine, upper, and lower. Each world has their own main character and story; therefore, players can experience three different stories at once. Depending on which world the player begins with, the difficulty level will differ.
Conclusion: While it might seem like this is a better game than the first, it's really just as broken. It's better programmed to be sure, but the insanely deep gameplay is still just as muddled behind clunky menus and brain-dead battles.
Excerpt: What do you get when you mix Advance Wars, some Final Fantasy Tactics gameplay, lots of strategy and a dash of RPG? What you’d find at the bottom of the video game cauldron is a game called Aedis Eclipse: Generation of Chaos. AE: GC is the second title for this franchise to be released on the PSP.
