DHGF: Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time, as one of the last releases for the PSP, is also one of the better ones, as it offers a solid real time strategy RPG experience to players that’s lengthy and robust, if you can ignore the odd issue or two along the way. The plot is engaging, varied, and staffed with enough compelling characters to carry the game along well, and the game looks and sounds good on the PSP. The gameplay does a good job of making itself easy to grasp on a basic level, but offers enough tools and mechanics as the game goes on to expand on your strategic options quite a bit as you progress. There’s a good amount of length to the main campaign, a large amount of extra content floating around for those who are interested in exploration, and a fully functional New Game Plus option built in that offers a whole new ending and as little or as much challenge as you’re interested in with some minor planning beforehand. The pacing can be awkward in the first ten hours or so, the game can be onerous in difficulty if you don’t approach battles the right way, and the game can occasionally be obtuse about what it expects of you. Overall, however, Wayfarer of Time is a fun, challenging and robust game, possibly the best in its franchise, and certainly a worthwhile acquisition for genre fans and series fans alike.
