  1. The deep combat, unique character designs and intriguing plot offer something for both the strategy fan and the giant robot enthusiast.
  2. A few minor issues barely put a dent in this anime-inspired strategy role-playing game, which delivers a great story and dozens of interesting missions.

    If you like the turn-based strategy RPG genre (such as Fire Emblem), you're almost guaranteed to enjoy this game. Be prepared to do a lot of reading, a lot of thinking, and a lot of losing. With that mindset, you can really enjoy this entry in Banpresto's long line of mecha SRPGs.

    Another surprising feature in Original Generations is the amount of customizability featured in this game. You'll be able to level up character attributes, learn new skills, customize your mechs, switch weapons out, and even assign pilots to specific mechs. There's so much to do that it can actually get rather confusing.
  5. 70
    Underneath the stylized art and strong anime-bent of Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation lies a glowing core of light strategy gameplay with some very gratifying customization elements.
  6. While this game doesn't break any boundaries and delivers some somewhat clich├ęd anime style storytelling, there's no denying that the game offers an underlying charm that fans of the genre can sink their collective teeth into.
  7. 60
    If you didn't know what "taisen" means, you can probably give it a pass.

    One of the best game ever. Loved it, nice graphics, I think it's even better than OG2 the Japanese version.

    Really, really, *really* enjoyable. Each path through the game is over 40 missions long, and while the last half of the game is the same no Really, really, *really* enjoyable. Each path through the game is over 40 missions long, and while the last half of the game is the same no matter what path you take, it's still extremely entertaining. The level of customisation is great: everything from individual mechs, weapons, and even pilots can be customised. A great game! Look for Original Generation 2 coming out in November. Collapse
