Time Stalkers is a very weak start to Sega's Dreamcast line of RPG's, and you wouldn't know it's from the company that once published Panzer Dragoon Saga and the Phantasy Star series. The game is mediocre and just plain screwed in too many ways to count. There are a lot of new ideas, but none of them turn into rewarding gameplay, leading one to wonder if Climax actually tried playtesting their creation before release. Further, the parallels to Evolution are uncanny and not particularly welcome, considering the quality (or lack thereof) of that title. In short, Time Stalkers is a muddled mess of a game that's not worth your time, unless you're someone who's satisfied by merely watching stat numbers go up repeatedly. And then... back down. Blah.
