Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse (Wii U) Review


“Shantae is a perfect character, more so than Dracula hunting whip snappers or the space faring bounty hunter which whom she shares a genre. Shantae’s adventures carry a feminine (yet inclusive) playfulness, undoubtedly brought over to Pirate’s Curse which splashes with literal and figurative color. While a touch disinterested, Pirate’s Curse layers safe Western mysticism and jittery pacts for its lean narrative. Series heel Risky Boots is brought into the mold of anti-hero for a bit of scintillating role reversal even if this tosses a central villain away into the final moments of the last act.”
