VideoGamer: A Shadow's Tale Review

A Shadow's Tale tries too hard to be subtle and artsy; qualities that Ico pulled off so effortlessly. It's endearing to an extent, but the experience as a whole is marred by poor visuals, uninspiring level design and dated platforming. It's a shame because some of the shadow effects are brilliant, and the use of light in puzzles is really quite innovative. Unfortunately though, A Shadow's Tale doesn't have the aesthetic credentials to back up its unique mechanics, which is ultimately the game's biggest shortcoming. It's certainly not a bad game, but with so many great games on the way in run up to Christmas, it'll have a hard time stepping out of the shadows. (A Shadows Tale, Wii) 6/10
