"Not recommended to everybody, but if you have already played the top ranked TD games it is worth a look for its surprisingly dark story. Difficult."

7/10 – IGN

“Beautiful graphics and an interesting plot elevate Shad’O above its tower defense ilk.”
7/10 – Gamespot

“The concept of the game holds up well and it stands on its own as a tower defense title. Okugi Studios did a very good job with this title.”
8.5/10 – Examiner.com

“A tower defense game whose wonderful art style and melancholy story are as effective as its gameplay.”
4.75/5 – Gamers Haven

Sadly the game forces you to install QT, which isn't part of the minimum requirements. I find that in poor taste and can't recommened it.

uhh hang on *pretends to muck about with a QuickTime reinstallation so I can play a god damn tower defense game* ok well i uhh played this game, and didn't just accidentally sit at the graphics settings popup for ten minutes while being distracted with other stuff, only to find I needed to reinstall QuickTime so this game can figure out what the towers look like or whatever. So, having played this game, which I've done (I've done the action of playing the game - I haven't done the game), I can say this: It offers graphics and some sound effects and uh there's a colored and dreamlike universe and also a captivating reahahhashahgfafha ah ah aha hahahahhahah who gives a single godd­amn f­ucking s­hit about the lore of a f­ucking tower defense game ahahahahahasbashash ash ashahahhash asha sh ah ibg eihgbeh grwlha a fwqe i qewfuhe esdguobersw im dying r ffffewrb b

Installs Apple products on your PC without asking....
"Apple Application Support" and "QuickTime"
Which are required to run this game.
Of course, it installed it for me, which I did not want. I do not want crapware on my PC.
And the game gave me QuickTime errors anyways at startup.
So, I have never seen what the game looks like.

I would advise you never to install this unless, of course, you love Apple crap.
You already have iTunes or any other Apple products installed on your "PC".
Then maybe you would not mind.
I, and millions and millions of other people do NOT want Apple craps on our PCs.

The game might be great. but I'll never know.

Pros :
I do not know.

Cons:
Apple auto installs on PC without asking.
Min specs required does not state it required QuickTime.
Rec Specs has an additional that says it does.

Game does not ask if you want to install Apple crapware on your PC.
I was wondering why it took some time to install this game.
