Conclusion: Castle of Shikigami III is a great title for people who enjoy the occasional classic, arcade-style game. However, it has a decided lack of content and doesn't offer much beyond the initial experience. It is definitely not a bad title and the gameplay is solid. Still, this title would have been vastly improved if there were more levels or modes to extend the gameplay experience.
Excerpt: Alcaland is in trouble. In danger of being wiped of the face of the map, in fact. Not from war or pestilence or anything you might expect; up until now, the country has been thriving under its monarchy. No, this crisis is beyond the constraints of human comprehension. The legendary Swan Castle has reappeared in the skies, blotting out the sun and is now slowly descending onto the helpless populace.
Summary: Castle of Shikigami III is a great Wii shooter with appeal for those who enjoy quirky anime characters chatting in their games. If you have a North American Wii you should be able to find this title for a budget price so go out and get it! UPDATE: PAL gamers can take heart that PQube Games is publishing this title in Europe with a planned release date of Q3 2010.
