Overwhelming for newcomers and probably too generic for genre aficionados, Touhou Gensou Wanderer Reloaded is difficult to recommend to all but die-hard series fans. The beautiful hand-drawn presentation and high production values are hindered severely by a contrived and intrusive interface, unimportant dialogue with very little character development and derivative mechanics.
Touhou: Genso Wanderer Reloaded is a solid game, but one with such lengthy conversations that you can’t help but become tired of them. Dungeons are fun, but the repetition aspect can also become tiring, and if you’ve played the original version, then it’s only worth picking up Reloaded if you really enjoyed the experience. There are new characters, scenarios and previously released DLC included, so there’s plenty of new content to see here. It’s the best Touhou game I’ve played, but it’s difficult to recommend at its current price. It’s worth a shot when it’s cheaper, though.
The roguelike procedural generation in Touhou: Genso Wanderer Reloaded often generates terrible flaws, horrible stages, and difficulty levels all over the shop - when the difficulty spikes, the challenging nature often just results in repetitive and frustrating grinding. There is far too much dialogue to read through, meaning huge gaps between actually being able to play… It's hard to find much to like here.
