Here we go: THERE IS AN 81 PAGE STRATEGY GUIDE FOR GENERATION OF CHAOS ON NIPPON ICHI’S WEBSITE. You simply sign up for a free account, and then you can download it.

With the guide, this is a fun game. I’m a few hours in, and the options are impressive. The game is beautiful and entertaining, if you are a fan of the genre. It is a shame that this game shipped without a more extensive tutorial, either in-game or out. Many bad reviews focus on the learning curve, which is due to the lack of any kind of sufficient guidance.

Fans of Final Fantasy Tactics, Disgaea, Atelier Iris, Growlanser, and such games might really like this title. Definitely get the strategy guide from Nippon Ichi’s site, though.

Once you get through the first chapter, you then get the idea. People who give this game a bad review expected to pick it up and play. This game does not allow you to do that. Search google for a few tutorials. They help alot.

If you want a game that you can play for awhile and really soak your teeth into. This is the one. It is not for the weak at heart.

this game is a lot like Tactics Ogre for GBA, with ONE exception: you lead a group of fighters and probably 1 NPC

at the start of the game, you have several Commanders, try to learn to see the commander and fighters’ strength and weakness

the lead Character, Gena, was powerful at first till you get several gunners and samurais

the level up system is S…L…O…W…, you pick 1 point of any stat or 100HP when leveling up

the gameplay is not that hard: expand your region, build your strength to lead a team, convince enemy leader to become your own, use your fund to arm yourself and bulid cities and castles, search around the place to find goodies, a new leader, or simply jump in fighting

there’re a lot of fun in the game, but you need to find out yourself, once you got the way to go, this’ll be pretty addicting, I gave 4 stars because the game is pretty hard to jump start

if you like Tactics Ogre, try this game

I’m not really past the first chapter of the game, and I’ve restarted everytime I’ve figured out something dramatically wrong with how I was doing it.

The story line behind the game isn’t bad. The game itself, once you begin to understand how to do this or that, progresses decently. Game play, on the other hand, leaves much to be desired. It’s like handing someone a book in another language, and an abridged translation dictionary -the further in to it that you go, the more that you understand-

As I’ve seen it so far, it’s a good story line, the question is, do you have the patience to fight through understanding the mechanics of the game to get to where you’re paying more attention to the story than you are to figuring out how to play the game to begin with.

Sorry this will be a short review. I purchased this game with the hope that it would be another slam dunk Nippon Ichi title and hopefully an improvement, or at least on par, with Dragon Force on the Sega Saturn video game system. I couldn’t be more wrong. The load times in this game almost make it unplayable. I’m not even talking inbetween battles or dialogue, there are noticable loading hiccups while scrolling from one item in a menu to the next item in the menu. Maybe this wouldn’t be bad if this was Street Fighter II, but it’s a strategy game and there is nothing but menu surfing. The PSP is pretty bad with load time but this game is by far and away the worst I’ve seen.

If you can get past the miserable load times, and it’s hard to do, you are rewarded with some solid gameplay with a daunting amount of complexity and depth, but the presentation is stale and boring. Dragon Force had much more charm to it. This game has plain looking maps with less than exciting battles. The battle effects themselves are pretty good looking, but something about the way the opposing forces approach eachother is like a child crashing toy cars together. Stategy games really don’t need strong graphics in the end, but Nippon Ichi and the PSP certainly suggest a higher level “wow.”

In summary, you must ask yourself what a FUN game really is? Every now and again you get a game like this where it would be such an incredible game if it wasn’t for one major flaw that’s like an itch under your skin that you can’t scratch away. I’m telling you right now, this is a good game but it is by no stretch of the mind a FUN gaming experience. If you can stick out the loading then by all means pick this game up.
