  • Having been introduced to the Shantae series on the Switch and enjoyed the hell out of each entry thus far a throwback title sounded interesting. Risky’s Revenge, as someone who was only introduced to the franchise after the big leaps since it was made, I think ends up being more of a historical artifact than something I was drawn to continually put time into. I’m glad that some updates were made to make the presentation a little better overall but most of all there’s no denying that this is a much simpler and less satisfying experience than what we’ve been spoiled with since the release of the Switch. If you’re looking for some nostalgia or just are thirsting for something a bit simpler to work your way through it may be a match but otherwise I’d definitely check out one of the more modern entries.
