As most people who follow me know already, I hated the Japanese version of Pandora's Tower with a passion. Having now played the English version, this has got to be the first time I've done a complete backflip in opinion, but I absolutely loved the experience. It's still a bad game, as such, but it's a bittersweet-beautiful game and by far the best experience of the Project Rainfall "trilogy."
I know it's not a downloadable game, but our readers survey (thanks to everyone that filled it in, if you haven't yet, please do!) indicated that we have a lot of Nintendo fans here. Please go check out my review on Otaku Gaming. I think it'll clarify what I mean much better.
