The game starts with a long cutscene that is suppose to explain why you're entering this dungeon and why you're being chased by a vegan army.
Pandora's Tower is very much a hack and slash adventure, with very little story to move the narrative along as you go to the tower for the 100th time and return before time runs out.
-1 For opening with a Final Fantasy 13 likeness
-1 For time limited exploration
-1 For eww factor and sloppy dialog
Get past that and you've got a good game underneath, at least a 7/10.

I think I enjoyed the storyline because it was a love story and these types of "maiden in distress" gives more motivation to the gameplay. I also enjoyed that you are able to interact with the characters and they are not just there for the story.
After beating the game once around, the game play becomes more challenging and enjoyable. Like any other game, the more items you have the better the game play, ie stronger weapons, stronger character. I also enjoyed that you are able to change the storyline the more you progress with the main characters. Watching one ending after beating the game the first time around, and then watching a completely different ending is so much more enjoyable and fulfilling to playing the game a second time around.
Lastly I enjoyed the controller usage. I have been feeling less guilty about sitting on my behind playing a video game with this one because like a zelda came, you use both nunchuck and remote to aim and shoot the weapons .
I would say this was more of a girly RPG game because of the story and the challenge level.
A Sound Mechanical Device.

The story is fairly simple but implemented well and I won't spoil it for you; but the basics are that the woman you love has been cursed and you have to travel to the fortress of the 13 towers in order to obtain Masters flesh, Masters being the boss creatures each tower has one and your girlfriend needs to eat the flesh of each to break the curse. Each tower is themed around different mechanics of using Aerons chain weapon and are nicly implemented.
The background of the story is mostly presented through documents you collect through out the towers and range from researchers notes on the towers and their functions, day to day life, the Masters and their weaknesses and notes from the towers past residents. Presenting game world in a manner similiar to games such as the Souls series from From Soft.
Overall, if you enjoy richly crafted worlds such as Dark Souls or Nier, and are a fan of Action Adventure RPGS, you'll probably enjoy this game.
A-OK, seemed too repetitive & nothing Wowed me

Oh, good I am glad we got something across to you!
because in any, I REPEAT, any sane world you should at least wait for it to stop moving, before you chow down, and hopefully you will check to make sure it isn't carrying any disease or parasites!!! Yeah... Normally, we of the NORMAL world prefer to cook it before we eat it.. I have seen some strange stuff in video games but this game takes the cake, eats it, throws it up, and then slurps it down with a straw taken from the sewers....... Yeah gross... This game is proof as to why we RENT them before we make the purchase, because I value my lunch, and I am of the mind not to see it again after I eat it....
Play at your own risk, and make sure your stomach is empty before you play this game.... God speed...
