The Wonderful 101
Another Great Title from Platinum Games.
If you've seen trailers for this, you're thinking to yourself, "These character models look like something from Viewtiful Joe." Platinum Games was Clover Studios, the guys who made Viewtiful Joe, Okami, and other Capcom gems are making this game. This is the closest we can get for Viewtiful Joe 3. this game looks alot of fun, its like Pikmin meets Viewtiful Joe In an amazing action game. Its really cool to see heroes transform into a sword, a fist, a bridge, anything to save people in distress or fight off enemies. This looks like a must own for any Wii U owner. I love supporting developers like Platinum Games, they are doing their best to make new IPs, but get overshadowed by an overrated videogame shooter. Support these people, they deliver what's best for gamers, imagination.
A wonderful game?
The Wonderful 101 is a Wi U exclusive game made by Platinum Games. Since it's Wii U exclusive, it will take full use of the Gamepad in many ways that can help and ruin the gameplay experience. In the game you'll need to draw on the Gamepad to connect things like bridges and stuff like that. It's really interesting gameplay though it gonna be a bit annoying to draw certain things because of the Gamepad's size limitations. The game is very action heavy which is great thing, but also has it's problems. Now when I say "action heavy" that's not even braking the surface as the game is just bursting will giant alien ships and so much chaos taking over the TV screen. Because of this it might be hard for some people to keep an eye on everything, but I'm sure it won't be that big of a deal. Because of all the action, The Wonderful 101 is sure to be tons of fun throughout the whole game. With interesting characters, fun gameplay, and loads of action, The Wonderful 101 is game that I recommend you pick up if you have a Wii U
This game is so fantastic! I heard mixed reviews, but I loved the demo. It has very little tutorial and a knock back animation that makes you feel terrible. But once you figure out you need to buy a guard attack AND learn how to do it, you won't be able to stop. I bought it at launch, got home around two, took a two hour break to watch the new episode of breaking bad, and rushed home to continue. I played until 2 AM. Here I am in bed googling the game and reading reviews and, you know what, I can't sleep. I'm going to go play more! Oh and a lot of people complained about drawing on the Gamepad. I didn't even know you could do that, I just use the right stick.
Wonderful is right
Wonderful 101 is a breath of fresh air for gamers everywhere. It's a fun new concept wrapped up in a beautiful high quality presentation.
At its core, it's a beat 'em up adventure game. It boils down to learning enemy weaknesses and scoring high hitting combo attacks. You control a group of superheroes who must defend Earth from an outer-space invasion. The controls are innovative and take a little while to learn, and making that effort is rewarded. The controls are tight and become intuitive after investing a little time to learn and practice them. The Wonderful 101 also utilizes many features of Wii U's unique gamepad controller. The music and sound in Wonderful 101 are top notch. It has an over the top attitude and feels like a high quality animation is playing out before you because of the great sound and graphics. Everything about this game is polished and shines quality.
All in all, this game breaks new ground and deserves a perfect score for taking gamers somewhere unexpected and WONDERFUL!!!
A great game that wasn't for me
I appreciate the game and I think many people will love it, but it just wasn't for me. The art and story seem to be great, but I would have preferred not to draw shapes on the GamePad.
the wonderful 101
I can't wait for this game. It reminds me of viewtiful joe. It has a great mechanic I never seen before and its exclusive to wii u, which makes it.
the best wii u game.
it's a power rangers game, but not for kids and is super challenging. this is a huge game, and do to sales, it's pretty cheap for the amount of content. this game is if pikimin was an action beat'em up. pikmin + viewtiful joe + okami = wonderful 101. btw, the creaters of 101 also made viewful joe and okami. if the like the medal system in bayonetta, it in wonderful 101 and it's better suited for the game. this game is hilarious, and it is adrenaline pumping. if you think bayonetta is intense, think again. fans of godzilla should also check 101 out.
This game deserves so much more publicity.
I love the large team management/puzzling aspect of Pikmin and I love superheroes. This game is an incredible blend of both of those concepts along with a very unique drawing mechanic. You can trace out shapes with your analog stick and then your team unites together to morph into the weapon or tool that the shape corresponds to. I just finished the main story on normal and I was so surprised by the scope of the plot, the dynamic gameplay, and all the unlockables that appear after you beat the game that I just had to write a review. I consider myself an adept gamer but it even took me a little while to get used to how the game is played. After my first couple of hours I definitely had fun but I was thinking that the story was kind of weird and quirky and it seemed that the game was going to be repetitive and not everything I expected. If this happens to you, make sure you just keep playing! The plot gets better and better and the gameplay just keeps expanding as you unlock more unite morphs and fight against all sorts of different enemies. What really pushed me to write this review was the fact that every time I thought the story was about to come to a nice, satisfactory close, it kept on going and became even greater! Even after you beat the game there are many additional surprises! But I won't spoil anything. Such a well polished game in all aspects. The only thing I really don't like is that when I mention the Wonderful 101, nobody knows what I'm talking about. Completely underrated and deserving of more publicity. Wow, I just wrote an essay haha. Seriously, get the game.
Crazy Awesome Game!
This game is hilarious and Awesome action-packed. Once in a boss battle I was holding a hammer and there was a ship being thrown at me! The hammer guy hit the ship with his hammer and it flew straight into the monster and blew him up! Seriously! Also, it is really funny. The hammer guy that killed the boss in the game actually was at a loss for words when trying to come up with a punch line. Instead he ended up looking like he was an idiot. But it wasn't bad, it was hilarious because of the way it happened. Plus, the storytelling is top notch. I won't give away any details, but the action alone is better than Ninja Gaiden and just as good as Legend of Zelda in almost every way. The boss battles are actually better! Crazy game, well worth every penny!
Get this game NOW!
I love this game this game is so awesome love everything about the game the colors the game play its just fun its the best hope they make #2 of wonderful 101
