Thanks to a dynamic and challenging play experience, there are plenty of reasons to get back up after you meet your untimely end in Shiren the Wanderer. Fans of this genre know exactly what they’re getting into and fans of RPGs in general may find the formula fresh, fast, easy to pick up and exciting to play.
Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate is not the less-experienced or the ill-tempered. It does not hold your hand, and in no way is it a roguelike for those looking to get into the genre. This is a game for battle-hardened, patient individuals itching for a serious challenge. I completed the main story dungeons in around 10 hours, and the surplus of post-game dungeons add dozens of hours of more high-quality adventuring.
What I was hoping for when I booted up Shiren the Wanderer was another anomaly – a title in the roguelike genre that I would enjoy, and that wasn’t what I found. Instead, what I got was a fairly standard entry in the genre- crafted well by a developer that’s been making these kinds of games for years, and even though I did not find the title to my tastes, I could easily see why someone else might.
