The Wonderful 101

High-Def Digest
13 January 2014
  • Summary: I have become a fan of Platinum Games over the years. 'MadWorld' delivered a mature offering for fans of the Wii, and the incredibly tight and responsive controls of 'Vanquish' and 'Bayonetta' have solidified their ability to develop games that rank up there with the best of brawlers.

  • Excerpt: If the Wii U were to have a killer app - it would be The Wonderful 101 . The bright and colorful action game is remarkably fun and even charming at times. It's deceptively deep and manages to change how you'll deal with a number of very old gaming clichés.

  • Excerpt: Pikmin met The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. They fell in love, got married and had a baby. That baby is The Wonderful 101. This is part Power Rangers, part Pikmin, and all campy 60s super heroes. Mix in a little Nintendo and you have yourself a Wii U game that hardcore gamers are going to worship.

  • Excerpt: Camera annoyances aside, my biggest complaint with W101 is the fact that it was supposed to be a “launch window” title and, like so many Wii U titles, was repeatedly delayed. I waited ten long months between picking up my Wii U and the release of the game that originally convinced me to buy it.
  • Pros: Crazy over-the-top superhero powers and story, deep combat filled with hidden surprises
  • Cons: Perhaps too hardcore, many surprises “hidden” due to dearth of tutorials, camera issues

  • Conclusion: I personally can’t blame anyone who doesn’t fall heads-over-heels in love with The Wonderful 101 because its appeal is not universal. Someone who is looking for nothing more than a straightforward action game might be a little disappointed, because the action isn’t as complex as something as...
