  1. The character art is so good, I forgot about the graphics. More importantly, the gameplay is gripping. [Holiday 2004, p.126]
  2. Hours of deep strategic gameplay, excellent music and interesting stories (particularly in "The Dual Darkness' chapter of the saga) make Growlanser Generations a keeper for RPG strategists in need of a noggin-shaking fix.

    These games are much too late to receive any real critical raves, but the fact remains that you get a lot of game in Growlanser Generations.

    An expensive game doesn't seem so pricey if it's good, but it seems even MORE expensive if it's bad. You'll get both feelings with the Growlanser: Generation experience.

The story and politicsI loved this fighting system, like making RTS and Tactics style RPG gaming to make an experience unlike none other.

    Another world beater. In terms of old school versus no school, Growlanser holds a winning hand and that is why it scores so high. The fact Another world beater. In terms of old school versus no school, Growlanser holds a winning hand and that is why it scores so high. The fact that you also get two games in one box adds extra credit here and both of these great games will take you many hours to beat. Atlus has spilled some really nice beans here. But the fact that Atlus opted out for the CD versions instead of one DVD with a nice game selection menu instead is crap. Full Review »
