Record of Agarest War 2 Review [Capsule Computers]

Travis Bruno of Capsule Computers writes:

"Record of Agarest War 2 has seen some of the biggest changes to the series, factoring in new battle mechanics, an upgrade in visuals and the addition of more fan service than ever before. Unfortunately some of the visual upgrades have caused other negative aspects of the title to become more evident while other upgrades appear to have actually been detrimental to the final product.

As for the new changes to the battle system, the title feels more like a combination between SRPG and action which actually works quite well and gives players a newer experience instead of the same thing for a third time. In the end, Record of Agarest War 2’s changes provide an enjoyable experience, albeit one with a rather mundane storyline but one that is brightened up by the game’s enjoyable romance system and freshly revamped battle system which will keep players interested for the title’s 30+ hours of length." (PS3, Record of Agarest War 2) 7.5/10

I REALLY want this game. Still working on the first one, but after 15 or so hours, I really dig it. My only complaint is that it's not dubbed in English. Now that the game is in HD, I can overlook that fact.

Shame the EU version has been censored :/

Ghostlight said its just 4 CG images and removal of 1 character from the 1st generation mini game, however according to some users these CG's are related to events in the game which in theory would mean the removal of these events too.

I f***ing hate censorship >:( Regardless of whether its games, movies, music etc

just checked some gameplay and it looks ok. might buy it seeing as its an SRPG and i love these kind of games(loved Valkyria Chronicles) and not because of the images that look sexual but isnt at all sexual :I

Looks pretty good. Loving the graphics.

I'm actually playing through the first one and it's a pretty good game. Looking forward to getting this one.
