Machinina: "A unique blend of turn based and real time battles is squandered on bland battles and a pacing that is far too slow. The visuals are both pretty and retro, with the beautiful anime-styled character portraits and cutscenes foiled by the pixilated gameplay visuals. Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time is a game made with a target audience in mind. If you are a fan of tactical RPGs and like to be beat up by a game’s difficulty, then Wayfarer of Time is perfect for you. For everyone else though, the game does nothing that hasn’t already been done and can be passed by for better games in the genre."
