Can anyone recommend this game? I'm interested, but the reviews seem pretty lackluster.

Dunno about Zero, but I played the first one and was bored to death after 10 hours of play. It had an interesting chess-like battle system, which ended up being too complicated for me to consider fun. In addition, the level progression was the same - one map looked like the previous map, with maybe one more enemy than the last one. Move your characters in a complicated arrangement so they could attack, enemies move and frustrate you, rinse, repeat.

If you're looking for a TRPG, I much prefer Disgaea or the FFT series for this sort of game, and I hear the Ogre series is really good.

If you're looking for the high-res anime girl w/ mild fanservice part of this game, then something like Neptunia or one of the NISA games (Trinity Blade, etc) is a better choice.

I really can't recommend Agarest to anyone unless you've played every other TRPG and just want one more.

Agarest is polarizing. If you're a fan of SRPGs and like character development and don't mind a slow-at-times game, you'd probably like Agarest. If you don't like that stuff or want a fast-paced/action-filled game then it's not for you. It's quite niche.

QFT. I barely played Zero but what I did play of it was pretty entertaining. It's like the first one for the most part. It's worth it at this price, that's for sure.

Thanks for the input, everyone. If CAG had rep, I'd be spreading it!
