Growlanser: Heritage of War PS2 Review

Console Obsession
23 August 2010
  • Excerpt: The Growlanser series is over ten years old and encompasses six games, but only recently have us Europeans been getting acquainted with it. Growlanser: Heritage of War may be the fifth game in the series, though it’s the first to make it to Europe. Thank heavens there’s no need to have played the others to know what the hell is going on narrative wise, then. Initially you’ll take charge of Seldous, a guy who detests war and is trying to bring an end to it.

Growlanser: Heritage of War

Thunderbolt Games

  • Excerpt: In the last few years the Japanese RPG has slowly began to evolve. Traditional turn-based efforts have become more and more niche as the big companies such as Square Enix and Namco have moved down ever more real-time and MMO-influenced avenues. And yet, the traditional JRPG is still very much alive in Japan, with smaller developers such as Nippon Ichi and Gust still creating such titles in abundance.

Review – Growlanser: Heritage of War

  • Conclusion: Overall, I’d say Growlanser is a pretty solid game. It’s a tough call at the current prices, but if they drop a bit or you’re running out of good S/RPGs to try, it would be a good bet. The entire game clocks in at somewhere between 25 and 35 hours – although there is no timer on the game, so that’s only a ballpark estimate on my part.

Growlanser: Heritage of War – Staff Review

RandomNPC
27 October 2007
  • Excerpt: A continent, sealed off from the rest of the world by powerful barriers, has been plagued by amphibious creatures known as Screapers, causing humans to be pushed inland. This isn’t the end of the troubles though; the land has also begun to decay forcing humans to turn on one another over scraps of land capable of producing crops.

  • Cons: Character pathing needs some babysitting, Nonintuitive ability-assignment system, Screen-pausing events block access to menus during critical moments

Growlanser V: Heritage of War

Project COE
18 September 2007
  • Conclusion: The voice work for the game isn’t too bad, and honestly, some of the performances sound solid. There are some flat lines, but that is generally stemmed from the writing rather than the VAs' talents. The voices do sound appropriate for the characters, which is good. Unfortunately, the music and sound effects, while effective, just stay in the realm of decent. None of the tunes are really that memorable at all and feels like typical fantasy fare.

Growlanser: Heritage of War

RPG LAND
28 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Growlanser: Heritage of War is the fifth title in the series, but only the third to cross the Pacific Ocean. The only experience most North American gamers have had with Growlanser came as a one-two punch with Growlanser II and III , released stateside by Working Designs as Growlanser Generations in 2004. In addition to a psuedo-3D graphical overhaul, Heritage of War changes up a many of the game mechanics that were in the previous games.
