Shantae: Half Genie Hero

Recommended Posts

This game is awesome. Great visuals, controls, music. And the full featured packaging didn't hurt either. Probably one of the last games I'll pick up for my Wii U new from the store shelf.

 

Anyone played it yet and have any thoughts? It's a old school 2D plat former with enough modern twists and eye candy to keep it interesting. If you like this type of game, I highly recommend you pick this one up before it becomes hard to find which I imagine it will shortly.

I picked it up on Vita but haven't tried it out yet.

 

You should its a blast. If you are playing it on a handheld you should definitely rock some headphones, the sound track is thumping!

Yeah I want to but haven't gotten around to it yet. Work and women take up 95% of my awake time. I've watched a couple of videos on it and it looks like an awesome game.

I did a full %100 completion. It's alright I guess, albeit very easy. I'd say it fits squarely in the metroidvania genre. Platformers of this quality are definitely welcome, especially when they are outside of the Nintendo standard mold. I'll give it a solid 7/10, where the shortcomings are the game length and a few absolutely useless transformations aside from getting 1 maybe 2 uses out of them, like the Bat and the Spider. Promising, but not utilized. And, then some of them have extra powerups, like the Spider, which I didn't find any use for and still did a full completion.

 

Pros are tight, refined controls. A decent storyline with some humorous bits, and challenging boss fight/puzzles. A rocking pumped up soundtrack, and a very nice deluxe packaging for the WiiU, which comes with the soundtrack also. For the price, this is a great deal.
