Wii U Reviews
We’ve led plants, soldiers, ninjas and even cheerleaders against the forces of the undead. But have you ever wondered what would happen if an all-female rock band comprised of witches took on the zombie apocalypse? Thankfully, Quaternion Studio has been mulling-over the same question.
Based on the Disney XD series of the same name, last year’s Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures was an unexpected decent licensed video game. It’s sequel doesn’t stray far from its predecessor’s simple take on the 3D platformer genre, but it offers enough new features to keep fans of the show and the genre engrossed until the end.
It may have taken longer than expected, but Mobot Studios’ “recut” version of its successful 2013 mobile platformer finally makes its way onto the Wii U. But with the eShop already stocked with humdrum 2D platformers, is Paper Monster as bad as getting a paper cut?
Though not without flaws, recent video games based on the Transformers universe have managed to win over even the most dedicated fans. In an effort to merge High Moon Studios’ successful Cybertron series with the movie tie-ins based on the Michael Bay films, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is a muddled mess that drags the Cybertron series down in the process.
Traveller’s Tales brings us back to the brick-ridden Middle-earth for another dose of hobbits and orcs in LEGO The Hobbit, but with minimal enhancements since the recently released LEGO: The Movie Game and LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes, I can’t help but begin to experience a little LEGO fatigue.
Over the past nine years, we’ve grown to associate TT Game’s LEGO series as humorous takes on some of our favorite franchises. But instead of being a parody, The LEGO Movie Videogame takes the easy route and re-enacts its cinematic counterpart scene for scene.
If you’ve seen ABC’s Wipeout, then chances are you aware of what you’re getting yourself into with Wipeout: Create & Crash. As the fifth entry into the series, it’s definitely an improvement over its predecessors but it still suffers from a multitude of glitches and bugs.
If you had asked me a few months ago why I purchased a Wii U, I would’ve most likely responded with a perplexed facial expression and a shoulder shrug. Honestly, with the exclusion of a handful of entertaining titles, there hasn’t been a reason for me to consistently turn on my console–that is until now. Super Mario 3D World is the best game on the Wii U by far.
