    This is a game that is fully enjoyed in a single sitting. The replayability is great if you strive to improve your score each time or even beat it on a single credit. This kind of game is best played against another skilled player. Games of this genre are simply about bragging rights they are not meant to be 80 hour long mildly interactive games and should not be compared to such games.

    If you like it old school, only updated--the game controls nicely holding the Wiimote sideways--do not hesitate to lock and load. [Apr 2008, p.60]

    Ultimately, Castle of Shikigami III is fun and has good replay value since each character feels different and has a unique storyline--the storylines even take a second player into account when you're playing cooperatively, which is a nice touch. [May 2008, p.90]

    The mere fact that it fills a niche on the Wii doesn't excuse this disappointing lack of substance. [May 2008, p.95]
