    The best part for the game is certainly the battles. The attacks are fairly interesting, if generic. However, the load times are a bit on the extreme side for the quality of the graphics (servicable, but uninspired)

    The localization is absolutely terrible. The voice acting is literally the worst I have ever heard. It is SO bad, that the only thing that makes the game playable is the Japanese voice track. The dialogue is poorly written with many mistakes.

    The game isn't completely terrible, but there are far superior tactical RPGs out there. The one would would enjoy this game are fans of the games represented, likely Shadow Hearts or Growlanser for US fans.

  1. The frustratingly slow pace makes things feel even more dull, and over all it just feels like the game doesn’t deliver as well as it should have.
  2. The grid-less combat can be annoying to get used to—especially when learning how to properly position characters—but there’s enough small changes to put a good spin on otherwise stale tactical combat.

    Chaos Wars is not a great game, but it is fun. I felt let down by O~3's low-budget localization, and the last few hours of gameplay really felt dragged out, but otherwise I enjoyed the experience.
