Story
At the dawn of time, a terrible war raged between the forces of good and evil, ending in the destruction of the world of Agarest. After their victory, the Gods of Light unified the decaying bodies of the Gods of Darkness and created a new world. Now, the forces of darkness are awakening once again… Choose the path of Darkness or Light through a truly epic story, spanning multiple generations. Battle hundreds of different creatures using an array of character abilities, in a compelling and innovative turn-based combat system. Build your ultimate army of warriors and master Extra Skills, Special Arts and Over Kills to defeat colossal enemies. Unite with your chosen heroine and use the “Soul Breed” system to shape the fate of the next generation of heroes.

Gameplay
Record of Agarest War is a strategic RPG combined with dating simulation gameplay. As the name of the game might imply, action plays out in sections or records, referred to as generations. The possibilities within each of these is formed in cause and effect scenarios determined by the actions of your character in the previous generation. These actions are tied to locations visited on the map, where battles, interactions, quests and the blossoming of relationships with female characters take place. Turn-based battles are fought as a group by the player and her/his party of AI companions where each acts in turn, before enemy units take their turn. Each of the possible characters in your party has her/his own strengths and weaknesses, which can be maximized or minimized in each combat situation by adopting particular strategies. These can be as simple as placing stronger characters in front where they can do the heavy fighting and weaker characters in the rear where they can provide healing, or more advanced tactics like precise spacing of characters which will allow for joint attacks, or choice of specific battle areas to magnify character abilities. Regardless, victory in battle earns the party points which can be used to level up all members of the party, purchase weapons and items, etc.

As events unfold players will also develop potential relations with female members of their party via the Soul Breed system. Like real relationships these are filled with ups and downs and unfold entirely dependent on your actions. All sorts of decisions affect the way possible mates will feel about you. This can be tracked, and thus possibly influenced, via the Link/Affection Gauge tool which is a graphical representation of decisions and how the female characters in the game feel about you in relation to them. In the end, if you are not rejected, you build a serious relationship with one of these characters and eventually have a child. That child will serve as the protagonist in the next generation of action, possess abilities which the union of the two character's skills and abilities equates to and proceed with new adventures and relationships.
