  • Gorgeous visuals and full voice-overs bring to life the somber story of a cursed maiden in a mythical land and a former soldier's desperate attempt to save her
  • The Magical Oraclos Chain is the main weapon that is also used to trigger devices to solve puzzles; bladed weapons are also critical during the fast and furious real-time battles across the Thirteen Towers
  • Elena's physical appearance becomes more grotesque the longer it takes to overcome each tower, and Aeron's interactions with her determine the strength of their overall relationship, affecting which of the multiple endings is earned
  • Materials obtained within the Thirteen Towers can be used to enhance weapons or fused together to create new items, which can be given to Elena as gifts to increase your affinity or be used by Aeron himself to assist him on his continuing quest

Product Description

Pandora's Tower tells a haunting tale about a cursed young woman's slow transformation into a hideous beast, and the lengths to which the man she loves will go in order to save her. Aeron must brave the Thirteen Towers, which are suspended in the middle of a valley by chains connected to surrounding cliffs, and use his magical Oraclos Chain weapon to retrieve "master flesh," the flesh of the giant monsters that reside within each tower, which he must feed to Elena in order to reverse her transformation. Aeron's interactions with Elena during their time together have a direct impact on the story, as the strength of their bond will determine which of the multiple endings is achieved. This is a Wii game.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I imported this one months ago because I was certain we wouldn't see a release, but it looks like we were all surprised! XSEED has released this game in the USA.

Pandora's Tower is one of the most enjoyable games that I've played in years! And even though it doesn't quite match up to all of these games, it reminds me of a unique blend of Neir, Shadow of the Colossus, and Castlevania SOTN, all of which have been excellent games that I found to be a blast to play. Even though I already own the import, I've also purchased XSEED's US release as well, to support them for giving fans what they've been asking for.

This game is a highly story-driven and emotional epic that will grip you for 20-30 hours. You really feel a sense of urgency and concern for the fate of the characters. Tidbits about the back story are uncovered throughout letters and diaries that are discovered throughout the towers, slowly providing insight as to the cause of Elena's ill fate. The overall tone of the game is bleak and depressing, yet hopeful. Certain moments in the story really do a fantastic job of portraying this, and really attaches you to the characters and their situation.

I found the gameplay mechanics to be fun and worked well. It borrows elements from several other action games, though is not going to win any awards for innovation aside from some of the ways that the chain is utilized in combat and navigating the environments. There are many games with smoother combat mechanics, but I never felt inhibited by the game's controls. The chain is both a weapon that damages enemies as well as a mechanism of incapacitating some (particularly stronger types). It's best used in conjunction with your blade.

I was really enjoying this game. I bought it in support of XSeed's localization of an obscure title. Unfortunately, their efforts must have been rushed because the game contains a game-ending glitch! Around the 11th/12th towers (essentially the final towers), a bug occurs where if you warp out and then attempt to enter the other tower, the game freezes, requiring a hard reset of the console.

The worst part is that XSeed are aware of the glitch but won't patch it. We've seen with Skyward Sword that it's possible to patch Wii games, but XSeed have released a statement saying they won't patch it due to low sales. How's that for a kick in the shins? I bought this game to support XSeed but now they won't support me. How can I support them in the future, when they don't test their products thoroughly, release them with game-ending glitches, and then refuse to patch them?

For that, I can't recommend this game to anyone, no matter how good it might be otherwise.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This was a game I was excited to play and add to my collection. And I'm fairly satisfied with it.

While the gameplay isn't groundbreaking by any means, it is still pretty solid. You make use of a few weapons in the game. All of which can be upgraded to perform more attacks and raise it's strength. But what I found was that I hardly ever used them. The main thing I used was the chain you get from the beginning. Because it provides distance, meaning you're safer from getting hurt, and if done correctly can stop most of your enemy attacks. The close range weapons like your sword doesn't really do much and can leave you open for a pounding if used by itself. But you can also guard as well. Though, perhaps I just wasn't as good with them. But this doesn't take away from anything! You can also link the chain to two enemies and even deal damage (when struck by your sword, etc) to both connected. Long story short, I find the chain more useful than anything.

The towers are also quite good. There is plenty to do within them. While reaching the top can be daunting at times, due to the fact that you have to get flesh back to Elena in a certain amount of time or it's game over, they are still very basic and very doable. Once you get a feel for them and figure out the path/using your chain they should become easy. And they even have items you can farm from them depending what time of day/night you enter. You'll need these for upgrades and crafting your items/gifts.

The Masters are...well... Easy or hard depending on how you go about them. Each Master has it's own specific way of defeating. Though, the first one is quite the pushover! You'll have to read notes that give you hints or figure it out yourself. Once you figure it out, you should have no problem winning.

3.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive but fun August 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
The basic plot is to beat dungeons in different towers to fix your girlfriend, and for about the first three towers, I was solidly entertained, and after that, I sort of half-heartedly plodding along until the conclusion. The controls are just complicated enough to be engaging, but not so difficult that they're impossible. The music and graphics are either dark and spooky or bright and cheery, depending on what's happening in the game. The main character, Aeron, uses a chain/sword combo, and it's lots of fun to swing around the buildings and rubble and figure out how to best bring down the giant beasts you're fighting. However, it's pretty much the same thing... every. single. dungeon. They try to spice things up with political intrigue, religion, and the mysterious history of the towers, but it personally didn't keep me engaged. It reminded me a lot of Shadow of the Colossus, both in tone and in plot--save your girlfriend by fighting a set number of freaky things--and the repetitiveness of the missions. So if you like games like SotC, I think you'll like this one, too. One thing this game has going for it that SotC didn't have is the fact that you can get different endings depending on how much attention you paid to your girlfriend, which is a nice sidequest kind of thing, or at least gives it some replay value. So in summation, give it a try, but don't be too surprised if you find yourself just going through the motions after a while.

4.0 out of 5 stars but the experience is awesome.
Addictive. The sense of urgency it creates as you explore the towers keeps your attention to the bottom left corner of the screen, and the puzzles are very well designed. Read more

Imagine if, when playing Legend of Zelda, your mission had a time limit before Zelda turned into Ganondorf.
