    This is a game that is filled with a simple yet endearing story, excellent game mechanics, eye-popping visuals, a challenging collection element, and a surprisingly bittersweet ending that will make you want to play it all over again, especially to see the once-static cinematics recreated in full 3D. Klonoa is one of the best platforming games of all time and this is a superior remake of an already flawless original.
  2. While platforming titles have certainly become more intricate and flashy over the years, Namco's update of their original Klonoa title proves that even a decade-old platformer can still hold its own when a developer puts the time and effort into it. If you're a platformer fan, you absolutely must own this wonderfully charming title.
  3. What you're getting, and you're getting it at a bargain price, is a magnificent update of an already standout title.
  4. Klonoa: The Door to Phantomile is a polished version of a 2D-platformer that was released on the Playstation more than a decade ago. The gameplay is simple, well structured and offers just the right amount of challenge. Klonoa isn't one of the lengthiest games, but looks and plays great.
  5. No matter how many years have passed, Klonoa is still a great platformer, and here on Wii it boosts a nice visual upgrade: however, Bandai Namco did nothing to improve the length of the game, which can be easily completed in five hours or so.
  6. The final surprise the game offered was its at first vanilla, then definitively Vanilla Sky storyline.
  7. The remake of Klonoa for Wii is a colorful and cozy game that's perfect for the younger generation of players. Unfortunately, the experienced player has not much to get here more than a dose of nostalgia.

    A great game made even better by the wiimake. Looks great and plays great. No motion control but I'm not sure that would have worked A great game made even better by the wiimake. Looks great and plays great. No motion control but I'm not sure that would have worked well anyway. At thirty bucks it's well worth it even if it is only five hours long. Expand

    Very nice 2D/quasi 3D platform game. This is a jump back to Ghosts'n Goblins time but with colorful graphic and good soundtrack of our days.

As a 7 year old game it doesn't hold up well to the lengthy platformers today. You can beat this game in a day. The graphics are great, the music is well done, the levels and bosses are good, but it's just too easy. Expand

I started playing at 2pm, by 10 I had finished very level, found every secret and still had around 20 lives left. The enemies are laughable, the only way you die is by falling. at one point I had over 40 lives - expect to finish all 14 levels in a single attempt. The graphics were nice enough, the controls are adequate and have no token wii 'shake the controller and pray' to mess around with. pretty good for a rental but not sure its worth the cash unless you'll bother with the time-trials or costume changes etc. Expand
