It's a short game (25-26 missions) so try to plow through it on Normal if you can. I'm enjoying it.

so far im loathe'ing the battle system. it seems to work of the premise that players will treat characters like pieces on a chess board. and dont get attached to any particular pawn. so you end up with strong characters torwards the front and weaker characters lagging way behind.

It does seem weird that you can almost literally just use the main character over and over and over and not bother with any other characters.... Its almost an effort to use someone else once in awhile... :-\

It might seem that way early on, but later in the game you'll need to use more than 1-2 people. Or just try it on Advance/Nightmare while getting 3 stars on every stage, where you won't make it far trying to solo with Giulio.

Anyway, if anyone has any questions let me know, or check the gfaqs board.. there's a ton of good info there.

Umm, that review.
Is this game unexpectedly long?

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

Maybe they ragequit.

I've cleared most of Nightmare difficulty with 3 star scores thus far.. it's mostly about spamming the RNG for safe ragnaroks and using a couple overpowered things like knockbacks, capture, burn, etc.

Not sure what stage I stopped at, probably around the same time (in a northern snowy region). It just got tedious.

Looks like RPGFan's abandoned the PSP too. :(

At least show Growlanser IV some love, k?

I'm playing it, but my PSP is on its last legs and it's suprisingly difficult to find a replacement. So now the game freezes every 15-20 minutes and I'm playing without music half the time. The game is pretty enjoyable though.

I absolutely plan to, Growlanser is amongst may favorite series period and IV was without a doubt my most anticipated release this year.... but now I've got Agarest War 2 demanding my time.... and BOY is it demanding... loving the heck out er' at the moment.... So in the interest of not degrading either my Growlanser or my Agarest experience, I may have to wait on actually playing Growlanser for a moment.. I've had my pre-order for it paid off since like april or something-LoL
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

Decent review. On Advance and Nightmare it's not much about dealing damage and beats, it's more about % based damage (burn, poison, Ragnarok), status effects, and instant death (knockbacks mostly).

Wow, such a glowing review! I am surprised, I was figuring something middling considered a few of us just got bored with the game.
