Shantae: Half-Genie Hero – Costume Pack Reviews

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero's Costume Pack is not bad. In fact, it retains the same quality as the rest of the DLC packs, as well as the core game itself. Unfortunately, while it gives you new toys to play with in the form of new classes, these don't provide a strong enough reason to play the levels that are 99.99% identical to the originals.

Costume Pack costs $7.99 and I ended up spending about 4 hours with it, which is longer than any of the other DLC adventures (Pirate Queen’s Quest was 3 hours, Friends to the End was 2+). All in all, I feel this was a great sendoff to a game I was happy to crowdfund. Though I didn’t get 100% victory for every mode, it’s pretty good incentive, since the new victory art is pretty phenomenal. I may still feel that Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is the high point of the series, but Half-Genie Hero has firmly cemented itself as the next runner up. If you love platforming or just like retro, you can’t go wrong with Half-Genie Hero or Costume Pack. I’m happy WayForward is so dedicated to retro inspired games, and can’t wait to play my favorite genie’s next adventure!
