The Wonderful 101

High-Def Digest
13 January 2014
  • Summary: Platinum Games has made a name for themselves as the go-to developer for over-the-top intense action games.

Wonderful 101, The

Cheat Happens
15 October 2013
  • 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.

The Wonderful 101

Family Friendly Gaming
2 October 2013
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Definitely worth buying, even a system seller to those who want this game badly but currently don’t own a Wii U. They should fix that problem with this game.

  • 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...

Game Informer
15 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Concept: Perform feats of derring-do while controlling a mob of superheroes Graphics: Bright colors and a cartoony style make this an excellent homage to the Japanese heroes-and-aliens TV shows that inspired it Sound: Corny dialogue and heroic music accompany the action well Playability: It uses the...
