Pandora's Tower

GameTrailers
2 May 2013
  • 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.

Pandora's Tower

Gamer Limit
22 April 2013
  • 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.

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 Review | Love In A Hopeless Place

Dealspwn
17 April 2012
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Pandora's Tower is constructed around a charming and compelling love story that, for many, will be enough. Sadly, the action gameplay and characterisation aren't consistently strong enough to make Ganbarion's effort a truly great game.
  • Pros: Tells a well-constructed love story, Engaging chain mechanics, Tense risk vs reward time limits
  • Cons: Horrible camera, compartmentalised levels and stilted combat, Hateful protagonist and predictable scripting, Wasted potential abounds
