Shantae: Half-Genie Hero – Ultimate Edition really is the definitive version of this already fantastic game. The DLC, while not as strong as the main game, is a nice bonus, with some very creative use of Shantae and her friends. If you haven’t already tried this game, the answer is easy: play this now!
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is an easy-going platformer with a lot going for it. There’s a ton of content to see even if the game recycles most of its content. The different play modes offer some variety and replayability though, which softens the blow. There’s definitely a Frankenstein’s Half-Genie of ideas at play here though; as much as the game does right none of it is original or groundbreaking.
This game is fun for all ages and provides you with the opportunity to play as a female heroine for once in a while. She uses her hair as a weapon and transforms by belly dancing to save the world. Yes this is awesome.
