The sequel to the PSP's first strategy role-playing game features a different setting, new characters, and a refined battle system. As with the original Generation of Chaos, this follow-up combines strategic, turn-based planning with automatic, real-time battles. Players will move one of 40 commanders across three distinct worlds as they attempt to eliminate rivals from the playing field. Movement throughout each world is designed like a board game, with factions alternating turns and moving a fixed number of spaces to capture key buildings or to directly confront an enemy character.
Each commander under a player's control leads a distinct army, from wizards and demons to gladiators and insects, with certain unit types more advantageous against a rival's units than others. Once two factions share the same space on the board, a real-time battle ensues, with both armies fighting each other until all opposing units are defeated. Variables influencing each battle include formation type, terrain, weather, time of day, and more. While players cannot control troops directly, they can influence a battle's outcome by activating their commander's special abilities at pivotal moments. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
