Chris Bowie - "Gryphon Knight Epic hides its best parts behind a wall of needlessly difficult gameplay and poor story sections. The knight flies around the screen with his gryphon mount narrowly avoiding dozens of projectiles from a great variety of enemies who all seek to stop him from curing his friends of malevolence. Or he succumbs to the barrage of attacks from a boss before he figures out how to do any damage. Most of the game falls under the latter scenario where trial-and-error gameplay is king and the difficulty is extreme. Without nostalgia or appreciation for the type of bullet-hell shooters that GPE is attempting to mimic, this title is hard to recommend."
