    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. 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. 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.

    This review contains spoilers. I would say that this game is a pretty underrated game, even for a short, casual game. I have heard complaints of it being a JRPG with dating sim and that it's boring, but personally I found the game enjoyable. I would not say that this game is anything along the levels of popular titles like zelda, but it's not bad. The towers in the game are beautifully designed with themes in mind, your actions toward the girl you're trying to save has consequences and the combat, although not perfect, is not what I would consider to be overly hard to easy to use.

    This game is not one that has a lot of freedom, your aim is just to go to the towers, kill the monsters and stop the girl from turning into a monster. There's no grand elaborate storyline for you to follow, although there are bits of background information that you can find through notes and conversation. Furthermore, aside from the different endings, there's not much point in playing through the game more than once, there's a New Game option, but this does little other than unlock treasure rooms to make the game easier.

    The game creates a beautiful world, a helpless girl and towers with monsters, that's all the game offers and with just that they have already created a world that I enjoyed spending my time in. If short cutscenes and dialogues about nothing more than the character and relationship development between characters and heart eating, beautifully designed environment and light hearted enjoyment is what you're looking for, then you'd probably enjoy this game. If you want deep story and complex gameplay, I suggest you look elsewhere.

    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.
