  • Summary: The unique gaming experience offered by Aedis Eclipse comes from the combination of team customization and item crafting on one hand, to the dynamic combat multi-unit battle system, on the other. The PSP format allows gamers to briefly pick up their hand-held to enjoy strategic thinkingThe unique gaming experience offered by Aedis Eclipse comes from the combination of team customization and item crafting on one hand, to the dynamic combat multi-unit battle system, on the other. The PSP format allows gamers to briefly pick up their hand-held to enjoy strategic thinking anytime, anywhere. The world of Aedis Eclipse is divided into three worlds, the divine, upper, and lower. Each world has their own main character and story; therefore, players can experience three different stories at once. Depending on which world the player begins with, the difficulty level will differ. The lower world is regarded as the beginner’s stage with many tutorials to guide the player through the game. The higher the world you choose to play with, the more difficult it becomes. DIVINE WORLD: In a world where angels and demons lived together in peace, tragedy strikes as the king of demons is assassinated by a radical group of angels. Now, a war has broken out between the two factions and you must stop them from destroying the world. UPPER WORLD: A young knight has arrived in a kingdom ruled by a ruthless ruler. His fellow comrades have been captured by the royal army and you must rescue them before it is too late. LOWER WORLD: Another boring day of school is suddenly interrupted by a surprise bombardment. While most students flee for safety, you decide to watch the battle. In a bizarre turn of events, you are dragged into the bloody warfare. [NIS America] Expand

    Aedis Eclipse isn't the greatest SRPG you'll ever play, but it is certainly still one of the most complex.
  2. There are other tactical combat games due out this year and they may be better suited to a wider audience, but if you got this far then you probably have a PSP and an itch for a good strategy RPG - and Aedis Eclipse can do a decent job of scratching it.
  3. Striking a nearly perfect balance between role-playing game goodness and strategy gaming, Aedis Eclipse: Generation of Chaos might not do combat right but it’s still a worthwhile game for PSP gamers.
  4. While Aedis Eclipse, the sequel to 2006's tepid "Generation of Chaos", adds quite a bit to the character development aspect, the core problem of the series remains: combat is almost entirely non-interactive. [June 2007, p.84]
  5. With more menus than a Parisian dining district, Aedis Eclipse: Generation of Chaos gets bogged down by its own ambition. And the game’s relative ease only makes its strategic density seem all the more unnecessary.
  6. I love this title’s core idea of using custom-leveled heroes and their squads of minions to conquer the world (or defend it; same difference) in a turn-based framework. Until I can do that without attending to details that I don’t care about through bland menus, though, I’ll be sticking with "Fire Emblem."

    There might be a competent game hidden somewhere in Aedis Eclipse. But between the byzantine interface, frequent load times, dull battles, and boring story, why bother?

    I'm playing through the game as we speak... and at first i was having a hard time loving the game. It was hard to learn and the I'm playing through the game as we speak... and at first i was having a hard time loving the game. It was hard to learn and the characters kind of pissed me off (voices mostly). but now that im about to finish one of the world levels im really beginning to enjoy it! the only real problem is the learning curve.
