What's more yummy than an Action RPG that uses well the recipes of Zelda, Rygar and Castlevania combined? Something that does just that and more, a game that is a surprise for Nintendo, a true mature story of illness and love, a dark, and deep tale wrapped in old-school game design.
It’s hard to think of another Big N game that has its heroine munching on monster flesh, so here’s hoping that Nintendo recognizes what a fantastic action-roleplaying experience they missed localizing and gives stateside players more of this kind of mature title in the future.
Absolutely loved the game. Granted, I was fairly uncertain about it on my initial playthrough, but it didn't take long for the game to win me over. And this is honestly saying some as I'm someone who's not really a fan of going through dungeons in Zelda games, and the majority of this game is spent going around the towers. But on top of the enjoyable gameplay and towers being well designed, the way the story is presented and Elena herself just cemented this as being among my favorite Wii games. Though w/ that being said, this game isn't for everyone. I can certainly see how this game may not connect w/ certain people as much as it connected w/ me. Though despite that, this game is definitely worth a look. The fact that I'm writing this review in 2017 shows just how much Pandora's Tower resonated w/ me.
A mature RPG that's been suffering from bad technical quality, repeating of the same in-game situations and from the excessively fast monster respawn. If you manage to get over these flaws, you are going to be rewarded with nice gameplay, a well-made motion control system and especially with its emotional story with five different endings.
Aaah, Pandoras Tower. Finally I thought, one of the few games that wasn't a first person **** 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 **** 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
Honestly, it reminds a lot like Drakengard series. The action combat is not terrible, but there is room for improvement. It is repetitive, but not the fun type of repetitive like Orochi Warriors, God of War, or Kingdom hearts.
Story is great though, although very depressing.
Lastly, some people might not like the difficulty curve that comes with it. Slightly overhyped, but I see why it is a classic.
