Game Vortex: Chaos Wars Review

Game Vortex writes: "Chaos Wars is an interesting title - at least conceptually. The game takes characters from several niche Japanese games and throws them together into a Strategy RPG, an equally niche genre. On one level, the game is a success; it manages to hit most of the things that fans of the assembled characters would want. At the same time, the fundamental gameplay might not be enough to hold SRPG fans who have little interest in the cast.

Chaos Wars isn't much to look at and sticks to the typical conventions found in most SRPGs released in the last few years. Characters have a slightly super-deformed/ anime look that is interesting and makes it easy to identify specific units when they begin to clutter up in bunches on the battlefield. Since most of the characters come from other games with completely different art styles, most have been reworked to fit within the game's world. All retain certain aspects so you know who they are, but it is a little jarring to see characters from Gungrave and Shadow Hearts in the new style." (Chaos Wars , PS2) 70/100
