Review: Pandora's Tower (Wii)

Pandora's Tower is the concluding piece in Nintendo's final Wii RPG Trio. The trio consisting of Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story and to conclude Pandora's Tower. Whist Pandora's Tower may appear strange at first, the concept soon fits into place...

We can't really say that Pandora's Tower's concept is reflected from an everyday life situation. When do you roam spooky towers to feed your girlfriend flesh, to prevent her from transforming into some indescribable creature. Elena will eventually turn into some sort of monster if you do not continuously feed her flesh from dead Boss' spread across the towers.

Likewise, the weapon system of Pandora's Tower isn't really reflected in your average RPG. A chain isn't usually your first weapon choice in an RPG, but that's what you get here! Surprisingly, the chain is quite an effective weapon throughout the game. It can be used in many ways, and requires you to point and click with the Wii Remote and Nunchuck, leading to some pretty precise combat!

To really enjoy the graphics of Pandora's Tower, you have to have very strange tastes! We just can't get our head around the dark and gloomy graphics of Pandora's Tower, but then again, we've been playing a little to much Skyward Sword.

Although saying that, Pandora's Tower's dungeons are pretty well designed, with each tower boasting a unique and beautiful design...

Pandora's Tower heavily relies on it's story, and without giving too much away, we can safely say that it is quite a gripping tale. Pandora's Tower could easily be written down as a gripping novel! And one that you wouldn't set down until it was finished.

Finally, the whole reasoning behind exploring these vast towers is to collect flesh from the Boss battles, these Boss's are real beauties. You can tell how much effort has really been put into designing these great battles. We could really sit and play through these Boss battles all day long.

Pandora's Tower lacks any form of multiplayer, this is a real shame considering battling the game's Boss's with friends would have been an amazing experience. Local or Online would have been great but there is no form of it in sight.

In conclusion, Pandora's Tower is a very solid RPG with a gripping storyline. The lack of multiplayer is a real disappointment, if you're prepared to get past this then you'll really enjoy Pandora's Tower...

3.5 / 5 - A Solid RPG
