Didn't really like it compared to pirates curse, they focused visuals too much instead of gameplay...

Yeah personally I felt it shouldn't have left being a Metroidvania. I love part 3 the most.

Never experienced the series at all, seems like an alright platformer, but nothing exceptional.

Well yeah when you take out the one statement that bridges that gap it makes it contradictory...
Not supporting their claims or anything, I'm guessing they just mean the thoughts are based off this video.

If it's more like Risky's Revenge and less like Pirate's Curse then it is a poorer game. The difference between RR and PC was so profound the moment I started PC

It's on Wii U too. I don't mention the non achievement/trophy consoles

Eh, it's like Riskys (and kinda the original) with the fact dancing for forms has returned and that heart holders are back and heart squids are out n' such.

The games level system is it's own really.


I'd have to say Pirates Curse is the best in the series.

In no way is 1/2 Genie hero and a bad game and we will be seeing DLC for the first time in the series. So maybe it might get even better.

But ditching full Metroidvania was a bad choice.

winkI just started the pirates curse and I absolutely love it. Precise controls great art and a few light RPG mechanics. Once i finish it i will buy half genie hero. If you love megaman, super mario world, castlevania and the likes play this game or pirates curse for that matter
