Shantae: Risky's Revenge Review
Without a single doubt, my favorite video game (tied with Sonic 3 & Knuckles). I love this game to pieces. This was my first Shantae game (would like it if the first and third game were in iOS too) and this was a series I've been interested in for a while. The gameplay is amazing, and the upgrades aren't too limited. I love how, similar, to Link Between Worlds, upgrades are limited by a magic meter instead of a numeral amount. This is something I wish a lot of other games could do too. The characters and storyline, while a little hollow on occasions, are filled with quirky writing, and funny 4th wall breaks and spoofs. The soundtrack is full of the mid-eastern-type world Shantae lives in whole being both atmospheric, and catchy. Since the rating system here is a bit limited. I rate this 9.5/10. I give high recommendations for any old school-platforming, retro, metroid-vania style gamers.
Well, I just finished this game yesterday, and there is only one word I can use to describe this: AMAZING. The graphics are great, the animations are smooth and the story and dialogue are very well written. I only have a couple of gripes with it. 1. Only one alternate costume is actually available. I think adding more would enhance the experience. 2. The story is a bit short. Maybe add some sort of DLC to extend the adventure so it doesn't just end so abruptly. That's all I have to say about this. (And the thanks to Chris Hoffman & Nintendo Power in the credits made me smile) Now, to anxiously wait for the sequel to become available. (Mighty Switch Force in HD would be nice too)
4.5 stars minus 1/2 star due to ratings limitations
I love this game. It's refreshingly retro, difficult but not punishing, got a quirky story, the controls are relatively easy and consistent, though once in a while it's a little to easy to hit the wrong one. My biggest complaint is it's lack of volume controls. It isn't a game breaker but it's always so much better not to have to mess with device wide settings every time you start a game.
