After the opening story, the player uses the strategy mode to build and strengthen the kingdom. In the beginning, the kingdom is small and weak. However, as you progress through the game, the player can conquer neighboring kingdoms and stretch its ruling powers throughout the land of Duke. Unlike other RPGs for the PSP(TM), Generation of Chaos features massive, sixty-character battles as well as sneaky espionage tactics. Other features include: Massive 30 vs. 30 real time army battles; Customizable troops and commanders; Freedom to fight with or against neighboring kingdoms. [NIS America] Expand

Generation of Chaos Gameplay Movie 4

  1. Even if the game had been optimized more and some of the mechanics streamlined, this game would be a hard sell for most gamers. But, for those looking for a deep and challenging strategy title, Generation of Chaos will fit the bill.
  2. Suffice to say that this is a very complex game. For a statistician or a strategy/tactics aficionado, particularly fans of Disgaea-like games which nearly drown players in stats and quirks, Generation of Chaos will be well-received.

    For the most part, players become spectators in their own war, forced to play only the tiniest of roles in the successes and defeats of their armies. [Apr 2006, p.72]
  4. Sadly enough, the game has all the right elements but it’s too hard to ignore flaws do a great job of overshadowing the good stuff. This is not a bad game, just a poorly designed one.
  5. But Generation of Chaos is too chaotic and takes an entire generation to play. Most folks will opt for something faster and easier to love.
  6. Generation is simple in a way that requires dozens of obtuse concepts to be learned with little justification. It simply isn't a good game, and it is definitely the weakest game in NIS America's lineup.
  7. I'm sure there's a small cadre of super-hardcore math majors into intricate medieval costume drama and puzzling out the mysteries of Generation of Chaos, but I'm not one of them.

    This game is the very definition of "whatever you put into it, you get out of it". Let me start off by saying that this is not an easy game This game is the very definition of "whatever you put into it, you get out of it". Let me start off by saying that this is not an easy game to understand. The manual is o.k.,but lackluster, the interface is confusing and the graphics are just enough to get by. So why did I rate it a 9? If you really, really commit to this game and look at the forums online, look for strategy guides online, read the manual TWICE, play through the first mission at least 3-4 times,then it hits you like a ton of bricks----this is an incredibly deep,complex and ultimately very rewarding game. Now you're probably wondering that no game is worth investing all that time just to figure out HOW to play it. However, if you do take the time, you will come away with a fun, complex strategy game with infinite replay value that you may find yourself playing for YEARS. Yes, its that deep. Expand

    I understand the negative reviews but I have to disagree. This game does have a steep learning curve, but it's very much worth it. You I understand the negative reviews but I have to disagree. This game does have a steep learning curve, but it's very much worth it. You can control your troops using the Move command, and change their tactics in mid battle. If anything, I thought the troops were too responsive to the Move command. Also, you have to take into consideration the board - if you move onto a square with nothing, you can't recruit, but if you move forward to an outpost/sign of some sort, you can. There is a lot of room for improvement with the graphics and the sound, but the gameplay is solid. Expand

It is almost like a RTS This is a fun game that u need to get the hang of before you can get good at it but once you it is very intersting. It is almost like a RTS but not totaly. It is a very good game. The negative reviews are correct in some aspects but not all of them this is a very fun game. Expand

    The game is addicting, however the slow pace makes it a painful experience.

Its many complex features just end up making this an incomprehensible mess . Also story was presented very sloppily with poor voice acting and ugly sprites. sadly a game with a lot of good ideas but poor execution Expand
