Shadows Awakening does so much well. It uses a great art style, and a range of creatively designed characters. The dynamic between the Shadow Realm and mortal realm is a fantastic idea and offers a striking difference in gameplay. Sadly, a tedious story combined with finicky menus and dull characters means that Shadows Awakening doesn’t fully wake up to its potential. It’s a decent RPG with some new ideas, but it’s not going to set your world on fire.
I had a lot of fun playing Shadows: Awakening. The switching between realms brings an interesting dynamic that saves this ARPG. With an extra layer of polish, this could have been something special and I’m looking forward to seeing more from this developer.
It just doesn’t stand enough on its own two legs to be remarkable. That doesn’t take away from the fact that I enjoyed nearly my entire time with it. Those that pick it up will likely not be disappointed; it is just getting someone to take the plunge that could cause problems. This is the kind of game that would have benefitted from being just a bit cheaper at the outset.
