    This game is truly amazing. It fills me with such joy to play it. Gameplay is good, and the controls feel super solid. The graphics are beautiful and stylized, minus some jagged edges on the shadow. Combat is one of the smaller problems, with the first sword, you need to be kinda close. This does add a sense that the later swords are an improvement though. The simplistic RPG system is perfect for this game, since its mainly about platforming, but it still gives your shadow a sense of growth. If you own a Wii and are looking for an underrated classic, you have found your game. Expand

    While perhaps not a ground-breaking addition to the Wii library, A Shadow's Tale had the potential to be more than what it ended up being. Nevertheless, what was given is still quite a good experience that will delight Wii owners craving for an original concept that strives to convey a unique atmosphere to its players through a well designed soundtrack and visual style.

    The basic idea behind A Shadow's Tale is quite intriguing, but the game design fails to drain the main portion of its drive. The game plays it's strongest hand in the opening quarter and unfortunately rest of this trek is repetition of the few good ideas. If the contents were compressed and the game sold via Wiiware, the result would definitely be an instant classic. [June 2011]
