Wii U Reviews
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.
If you’ve ever watched more than a few minutes of the Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time, then you are aware of its wonderfully, absurd sense of humor. Sadly, Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW! doesn’t display the same playfulness of the series
For over 30 years Pac-Man has been chomping on ghosts, pellets and fruits in both the 2D and 3D realm. While his past platforming adventures failed to be as memorable as the arcade classic, as a companion piece to the Disney XD cartoon of the same name, Ghostly Adventures offers a fresh new plot
For well over a decade, SpongeBob and friends have been entertaining us with their idiotic antics and ridiculous plots. While it mimics the comical charm of the show, Activison’s SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton’s Robotic Revenge is an unoriginal and repetitive trek through Bikini Bottom.
With added competition from Disney Infinity, Activision’s runaway bestseller Skylander series needed to evolve. Now, with Skylanders: Swap Force, we are introduced to 16 interchangeable characters, more robust gameplay and tons of addictive collectibles to declare it the freshest and most fun entry thus far.
In 1989, Capcom set a high standard for licensed platformers when they released DuckTales (woo oo)–sorry, I couldn’t help myself. With DuckTales Remastered, they’ve teamed up with WayForward (the team behind remakes such as A Boy and his Blob and Double Dragon Neon); but can they replicate the same magic that worked 24 years ago?
