    By adding in an interesting story and supporting cast the game proves it can stand on its own compared to some of the all time best in the genre. Touhou Genso Wanderer is a frustrating and wonderful dungeon crawler that fits perfectly into the doujin Touhou universe.

    Genso Wanderer is a really well made roguelike, it’s great about introducing new mechanics at a steady pace, and it’s pretty easy to get into – even if you have no prior knowledge of other Touhou Project games. Unfortunately, for as well made as the game is, the story proves to be the weak link here. It’s certainly present throughout the adventure, but the general structure makes for a journey that feels a little empty. It’s hard to care about many of these characters and, for the most part, the events unfolding around Gensokyo just serve to give more reasons to crawl through dungeons. A larger focus on gameplay isn’t all bad, but I certainly would have liked to see a better realized story as well. That said, after over fifty hours of dungeon crawling, I’m glad I took the time to investigate all of the weird incidents surrounding Gensokyo. It’s a game that’s very much worth persevering through each obstacle thrown your way, no matter how demoralizing each death might be.

    Interesting but simple. Fun but ugly. Addictive but not for very long... A nice game that does a lot of things well, but also fails on others.

    A roguelike like many other out there, imbued with cuteness but boring and frustrating in most of its moments.

    Touhou Genso Wanderer can feel like a lot to take on at times. As beginners to the series, a lot of time was spent feeling as if we were on the back foot and had missed chunks of tutorial content. The game's fun enough to begin with but becomes frustrating very quickly, and ultimately doesn't offer enough excitement to sustain any interest that it may have piqued early on.

    Touhou Genso Wanderer puede padecer de un apartado técnico muy modesto y de pecar de poco innovador u original, pero todo lo que pretendeTouhou Genso Wanderer puede padecer de un apartado técnico muy modesto y de pecar de poco innovador u original, pero todo lo que pretende ofrecer lo hace bien.

    Es un roguelike divertido, con mas posibilidades de las que aparenta, repleto de contenido y con una historia que, si bien no tiene ni pies ni cabeza, es capaz de invitaros a seguir solo por lo disparatado que resulta todo el asunto.

    Aunque en sobremesa pierda parte de su encanto (es preferible jugarlo en Vita, ya que este juego pide a gritos jugarlo en vuestra camita tranquilamente), sigue manteniendo intactas todas sus virtudes en pantalla grande.
