Generation of Chaos Overview
Generation of Chaos is a turn based strategy role playing game that revolves around managing a kingdom and controlling an army. The kingdom management aspect of the game is very unique and keeps the player excited and interesting. The combat aspect of the game works very much like rock paper scissors. Certain unit types can easily defeat others while some completely dominate. The looks alright for psp but suffers from a few issues. One issue is that the combat gets very repetitive and another is that the story is extremely weak.
