Summary: I sure am glad I did not miss this one for psp this game is just outstanding in everyway I really love this. I do expect great things when I see atlas on a cover of a game and this just makes me love the company even more.
Summary: I've actually not played Growlanser before this title. I am a huge fan of JRPGs in general, especially those with an element of strategy. While this game is not as strategy oriented as Final Fantasy Tactics, Jeanne d'Arc, or Gungnir (which was an amazing game), but it does have a little bit of strategy to the battles beyond the normal ATB style hack-fest battles popularized by Final Fantasy. So speaking of battles, they are actually quite enjoyable.
Summary: I like this game a lot. It is a solid jrpg with lots of customization. I would admit that when the game started the story, I did not get pulled in right away. and the gameplay started too basic. But as the game progresses, the game got a bit more complex with the introduction of spells and the customization you can do. and then I got a dollhouse. yes, i am sold. With the dollhouse you dress up and customize your familiar. the game is a bit more difficult than most jrpgs.
Summary: I'd always read from importers and Japanese fans that Growlanser IV was the best Growlanser title among the six. And having played II, III and V I didn't think it was possible to be better than II. Gladly I was mistaken, IV truly is the best of the series. It is long, has hundreds of choices, a great combat system and this PSP version even has other storyline branches the original didn't have.
Summary: I had never played a Growlanser game before, but I was excited to get another JRPG for the PSP before everything moved over to the Vita. Although I was looking forward to playing it, I really wasn't expecting anything above average. Man, was I blown away when I realized I was playing a game easily on par with some of my favorites of all time! Good: -Excellent story where every character has their own part to play.
