    Yes-- the voice acting and the English translation are terrible. Get past that and you have a truly enjoyable and fun SRPG. It doesn't have the engrossing depth of something like Disgaea, but instead you have an accessible game with just enough mechanics to make things interesting. Plus, there's the enjoyment of seeing many, many characters from games you know will never make it Yes-- the voice acting and the English translation are terrible.

A great diversion from the uber-fare of many of the new SRPGs. Expand

    Take the awful localization out of the equation and this is a really fun game. If you play with the original Japanese voices on you can avoid that anyhow. The combat system is deep, this story is humorous and anyone who likes strategy RPGs should definitely give this a try.

    Like what most people are disappointed in this game is the voice acting of course, but when ignored you have yourself what enjoyable RPG, add to the enjoyable spell/attack graphics, a better Japaness voice acting.
    You may find it hard to put down.

  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.
