I had recently received this game and was excited to play. The graphics on this game are excellent and look like a cgi generated animation movie. also the concept of playing as a shadow following only paths of shadows is great. This is a fun game to play. The only downfall I have with this game is the fact that alot of the levels are the same and require you to repeat the same stuff over and over to find the shadow crystals to complete the level. Also the music is very well done. I would recommend this game as a rental, dont waste your money buying this game. It is a very short game as far as length. Not a horrible game but not a great platformer either.

This game is fairly interesting though sometimes it can be a bit TOO quiet and too brooding. I don't know if I'd say I had a blast playing this one. It was merely interesting and sort of like playing solitaire at your desk at work. Better than nothing sort of feel to it but I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to see how it all ended but was also telling myself throughout "lord this game just keeps going and going...just END so I can return you!" My biggest gripe however were the controls. There seems to be this feeling of jumping into an invisible wall when leaping forward. A lot of times that results in you jumping up and down in place. At first I thought it was my nunchuck controller but same results regardless. There are some levels that call for speedy leaps and its incredibly frustrating when you hold forward and jump and the character doesn't move and you can literally feel the sudden weight as if gravity is holding you back from making a simple motion. Mario would have destroyed these shadow monsters and platform puzzles. This lil guy is slow as heck

I got this in the mail yesterday and have had a hard time putting it down. It is a very cool sidescrolling game, it is not too hard to play and very easy to pick up. Recommended to anyone who wants to play a sidescrolling puzzle/action game.
