Summary: This is one of the dullest games I have played on the WII. I thought it was going to be like demon blade, but it wasn't even close. The game play is really slow and this nonsense of losing all your stuff when you lose is ridiculous.
Summary: 'Best Game on the Wii' is kind of a backhanded compliment, since nearly every Wii game I've ever played is really awful. But Shiren isn't like other Wii games. It's a Roguelike. Not a hardcore Roguelike by any means, but it's in the genre.
Summary: Although similar to pokeman dungeon series (made by the same guys chunsoft). This game was what made them. Shiren is a rogue like game third in the series, compared to the other ones which were hard cause once you die everything resets and you must start over again items levels the whole thing.
Summary: I have always been a fan of roguelike games since the days of Azure dreams on PS1, but that is not the reason why I liked Shiren on Wii so much. The game has a good "unpredictable" story! and this coming from a girl who has played and seen it all.
Summary: I'm a 41-year old fan of roguelikes. I enjoyed the original Rogue, Hack, Moria, Angband, Larn, you name it. I adored "Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer" for DS and contributed extensively to the player community wiki for that game.
Summary: I just love how this game suits my gaming needs when I'm just playing to unwind and get into a none-complicated, casual-friendly dip into the RPG-genre. Am surprised to see how unfriendly the story is. Thought for sure this was a kid's game.
Summary: I'm a huge fan of Shiren on DS and was delighted to discover the game was coming to the Wii. From what I played, all the magic that made the DS game great made it to the new version, but it was crippled by a number of poor implementation decisions. First, the camera is zoomed too far in.
Summary: Easily one of my favorite Wii games. The Shiren series and roguelikes in general usually isn't easy for everyone to pick up. This one can easily be picked up and played by anyone to get a feel for the series, however.
Summary: Shiren the Wanderer isn't like most RPGs out there; you can't just level grind and expect to get by. There are practically no easy battles in the later dungeons, you've always got to be on your toes and think one step ahead. Item management plays a central role.
