Pandora's Tower

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: With the US release of Pandora's Tower , the final title in the " Operation Rainfall " trilogy has been localized. Major props to XSEED for taking a chance at giving the Wii one last hurrah! Pandora's Tower is an action role-playing game that takes a few mechanical and thematic cues from other notable titles, such as Monster Hunter and Shadow of the Colossus . There's even a dash of dating sim!

  • Excerpt: Pandora's Tower arrives at a time when the Wii has all but faded from memory. Had it not been for the persistent efforts of the Operation Rainfall fan campaign, it's likely the game wouldn't have even seen the light of day in North America. Now that it's here, we're left with a game that couples Zelda-style dungeon exploration with thoughtful relationship dynamics. Though the controls sometimes hurt the experience, its other strengths make it worth playing.

  • Excerpt: The time has finally come: the last Operation Rainfall Wii game has hit stateside. After so much fanfare for the two major RPGs in the group, Xenoblade and The Last Story , the action-centric Pandora’s Tower arrives with little to no fanfare, compliments of publisher XSEED Games.

Review: Pandora's Tower is a great closing curtain for the Wii

GameZone
14 July 2012
  • Excerpt: It's funny to think that just a couple of years ago it seemed as though the Wii was pretty much done as far as worthwhile exclusives were concerned. During that time, the idea of getting solid RPGs the likes of Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story was practically a pipe dream. Pandora's Tower seemed like an even more unlikely candidate for localization.

Pandora's Tower (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
6 May 2012
  • Excerpt: It seems like games these days have to have everything in order to please anyone. Every long-standing franchise is either adding multiplayer or simplifying gameplay in order to tick off as many boxes as possible to grab some extra market share (I'm looking at you, Ninja Gaiden ). Pandora's Tower goes in the opposite direction and actually strips things down.
