Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time

  • Summary: Everytime I put my PSP down, something comes out to make me pick it back up. And it's usually an RPG. That said, I have no problems with new title releases late in the system's life, especially when they're as engaging as Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time . While I'll admit that getting into a remake of a sequel of a series I've never played was a bit difficult at first, in the end it was totally worth charging my PSP back up this one last time.

Growlanser Wayfarer of Time

Family Friendly Gaming

  • Excerpt: RPG Fans with a level over one hundred know Atlus well. Atlus brings over many role playing games that the American audience would not normally see. These can be quirky titles, or games that hardcore gamers will worship for years to come. Growlanser Wayfarer of Time fits some place in between those two.

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: This is going to sound like a Yogi Berra line, but the problem with nostalgia is that it’s never quite like you remember it... Playing a game on PSP is surreal enough, considering how far the hardware has taken us, but it’s fitting that Sony’s handheld is mostly in the realm of nostalgia these days. It’s also fitting that Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time dates back to the days before the PSP, circa 2003. In that sense, this is a fitting marriage.

Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time (PSP) - Review

VGChartz
1 September 2012
  • Excerpt: As time goes by and one generation of handhelds bow down to make way for new hardware, I can't help but notice a recurring theme, not only on the PSP but on the Vita as well: people love recreating console RPGs on handhelds. This trend has gone back as far as Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions and continued through Final Fantasy I, II, and IV . The first two Disgaea games and the first three Persona games were also all ported to the PSP.

Growlanser: Wayfarer Of Time Review

  • Conclusion: Even if you’ve never heard of the name Growlanser before, this is worth a look despite its shortcomings; there are certainly worse ways to bid Sony’s alarmingly resilient handheld goodbye.

  • Excerpt: Tout jeu de rôle japonais qui se respecte se doit généralement de mettre en scène une équipe de jeunes héros dans leur quête pour sauver une humanité complètement passive face à un mal qui la menace. Growlanser : Wayfarer of Time tente de prendre le contre-pied de cette règle immuable en nous mettant aux commandes d'un groupe hétéroclite qui n'est finalement qu'un rouage dans le grand schéma des choses.

  • Excerpt: Nischen-Anbieter wie Atlus versorgen die PSP-Gemeinde weiterhin mit hochwertigen Rollen- und Strategiespielen japanischer Bauart. Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time ist die Umsetzung eines PS2-Titels, der es nicht in den Westen schaffte, und macht sich zumindest am Anfang nicht gerade beliebt: Die klischeehafte Handlung kocht auf Sparflamme, die ersten Kämpfe dürft Ihr nur mit spielerischen Stützrädern bestreiten.
