    Aaah, Pandoras Tower. Finally I thought, one of the few games that wasn't a first person shooter.As I walked into the shop and bought the game my brain went all fuzzy as I brushed the lower part of my torso, I had a warm feeling inside me as I inserted the game into my console and started the game.My brother then proceeded to shout "Alien Paedophiles" as he watched Cowboys and Aliens. IAaah, Pandoras Tower.

I told him to shut up and started my intense journey through Pandoras tower. When I finished the game I went and watched Cowboys and Aliens. I then watched some porn and felt that this was a slightly more satisfying experience than Pandoras Tower. The game just doesn't have enough to make me feel like I truly invested my valuable time in to. If only they had spent a little more time on this. But if you like JRPGS then you may want to pick up this game amid a market of similar games Expand

    I was quite disappointed in the game, I mean, the tralier was pretty cool, but all the game really is that of a crappy version of Zelda with some rpg elements, its not that bad, but its not great.

    If you are a fan of Majoras mask, Castlvania, God of War,Shadow of the Colosuss and JRPGs, your love this game. This a fresh experience that hasn't been replicated for a long time. Its game that invokes a feeling that when you put the controller down and walk away, your compelled to pick it right back up.

    The story is very basic yet well constructed. Without spoiling too much, its

Its game that invokes a feeling that when you put the controller down and walk away, your compelled to pick it right back up.

    The story is very basic yet well constructed. Without spoiling too much, its about a girl with a curse and a boy who needs to save her by eating flesh of monsters from a tower suspended over a large chasm. The towers hold a larger boss monster at the top called Masters. Each mash holds flesh, and you must feed the girl flesh of Masters to lift her curses. You also have to develop a bond with the girl in order to progress a happy ending.

    The battle mechanic is very robust and rudimentary. its akin to a hack-and-slash game of God of War, darksiders or castlvania. But what i loved most about the battle mechanic is the chain. the Oraclos chain is the center focus in the game. This chain is a secondary side weapons that feels like a primary weapons. Primary weapons are swords, blades, scythes and a Explosion stake. But the way you have to integrate the chain with the environment really brings the depth of the chain into play. you grab, swing, whip, bind, and stab enemies with the chain and work with your primary weopon to rip them apart.

    Each tower acts like a dungeon in Zelda. There are puzzles you have to solve, and equipment you can get. to progress further. But since the girl is curse and the curse gets worse if your not there with her, you cannot stay in the dtowers for long. YES THIS GAME IS TIMED. Its like Majoras Mask, and that you cant take your merry time with the dunsgeon and if you do you'll lose small items. Every time u enter a tower, do one thing first...look for flesh from servents. Servent flesh is like master flesh but only serves to reset the timer. the more "fresher the flesh" the more potent. If ur in a tower and the timer is getting lower, you need to find your way to the exit and feed her the flesh and go back to the tower. it seems annoying but brings a dynamic of urgency. And th thrill gets stronger when you finnaly get to the boss, but ur timer is almost up, but you know it takes longer to trek back to the exitso u fight the boss and nearly beat the clock. I love that feeling.

    Now lets talk about the girl. She's a gold digger...no really she is. You need to shower her in gifts in order to increase your bond with her. She loves undoubtedly and and says the most awkwardly pout lines. its cringe worthy at some times, but can get really heart felt most of the time. She could cook for you, make your inventory bag larger, and make medicne. She also decifers unreadable notes to uncover the lore in the game, a nice touch.

    Buy this game, you will not regret it.

    Pandora's Tower is loaded with interesting concepts, but it fails to pull them through an entire playthrough in a sustainable, engaging way.

    Pandora's Tower is an enjoyable RPG, and if the Affinity thing wasn't involved, I'd easily put this up to the ranks of four stars and beyond. There's a lot of exploring to do, puzzles to solve, and great action that requires serious thinking. The gameplay as well as the presentation are top-shelf. If you can put up with Elena, in either form, you'll find this to be a great action adventure title.

    Much like Elena in the throes of disfiguration, Pandora's Tower is imperfect, but begging to be loved.
