The Wonderful 101 Review

Digitaltrends
16 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Video games are different from other art forms precisely because they’re a dialogue. A movie or symphony can speak to you, but you don’t get to speak back. By picking up a controller and playing, conversation takes place between player and game. A game only works as well as it can speak to the player, and The Wonderful 101 just doesn’t speak clearly enough. It’s fun, strange, and often beautiful, but it’s also more flawed than any other game directed by Hideki Kamiya.
  • Pros: Wonderful 100 shapes make for a fine twist on video game brawling., Beautiful cartoon world., Hilarious array of side characters.
  • Cons: Poorly defined goals., Crowded screen makes combat confusing., Terrible gyroscope controls in some sections.

  • Excerpt: The latest title from Platinum Games is a crazy mash-up of super-hero tropes and Japanese action button mashers. Published by Nintendo and developed for the Wii U, The Wonderful 101 helps fill the console’s line-up with something new and interesting.

  • Conclusion: "Mission mode gives you a permanently full Unite bar, and the combat is much more engaging as a result" "It’s the clumsy, ham-fisted delivery of some sections that grates the most" "Those who do persevere with the game and plumb its depths will find plenty of content to master"
  • Pros: Viewtiful Joe-esque characters and style, Spectacular boss battles, Loads of depth and secrets
  • Cons: Stop-start gameplay is hard to enjoy, Some near-unplayable sections, Just not as fun as it should be

The Wonderful 101 (Wii U) Review – This is Anything but “Wonderful”

Canadian Online Gamers
4 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Right off the bat, it is evident The Wonderful 101 is a game that doesn’t overlook a chance to poke fun at itself. Attempts at self-deprecating humor (and general cheesiness at times) may indicate otherwise but at its core, its actually a pretty dedicated action game. It just turned out to be one that really never resonated with. The premise of The Wonderful 101 is pretty typical save-the-earth-from-an-attacking-alien-race fare.

Test : The Wonderful 101

GameHope
12 October 2014
  • Summary: Le manque de gros titres se faisant de plus en plus cruellement sentir sur Wii U, The Wonderful 101 est un peu attendu comme le sauveur par Nintendo. Et avec Platinum Games aux commandes, le constructeur peut être soulagé. Ajoutez à cela un concept fort sympathique, et vous pouvez, vous aussi, acheteur naïf de Wii U, voir la lumière au bout du tunnel. Voici donc 100 bonnes raisons d'acheter The Wonderful 101... Ou pas.
  • Pros: Une esthétique cartoon sympathique, L'humour omniprésent, L'action over-the-top, Les séquences de shoot et de mécha.
  • Cons: Problème de lisibilité dans le feu de l'action, Utilisation de la wonder-ligne pas au point, voire carrément casse-c*******, Gestion de la caméra au gyroscope complètement foireuse, Affrontements terriblement fastidieux et répétitifs dans le dernier tiers du jeu, Un boss final outrageusement long à battre, Ce jeu nuit gravement à la santé de votre gamepad.

The Wonderful 101

Level 7
15 September 2013
  • Summary: The Wonderful 101 är utvecklat av Hideki Kamiya och Atsushi Inaba, samma duo som jobbade med Viewtiful Joe-serien och Okami. I denna nya titel tar man kontroll över 100 små hjältar samtidigt, vilket vid första anblick kan föra tankarna till Nintendos Pikmin 3 . Till skillnad från Pikmin-spelen där olika enheter kan styras oberoende av varandra, kan hjältarna i The Wonderful 101 snarare ses som en enda mångsidig spelkaraktär.
  • Pros: God humor, Imponerande bosstrider, Stark audiovisuell upplevelse
  • Cons: Kontrollproblem, Utlärningen av stridssystemet, Utdragna spelsekvenser

The Wonderful 101 - Test sur Nintendo Wii U

All Nintendo
30 August 2013
  • Conclusion: "Platinum Games" arrive avec un titre d’action original et techniquement au point, mais la maniabilité des héros est complexe et l’écran est surchargé. Cependant "The Wonderful 101" sort du lot par rapport à tous les autres jeux Wii U, en apportant de l’action et de la culture japonaise. Si vous aimez la culture super-héros foncez sur ce titre. Adaptez-vous au gameplay et ne vous laissez pas abattre.

  • Excerpt: Karikerte og tegneserieaktige superhelter lever anonymt blant befolkningen, alltid beredt til å forsvare jordkloden mot angrep fra GEATHJERK-romvesener (ja, det skrives faktisk med STORE BOKSTAVER). En superhelt alene er dog ikke nok, derfor slår de seg sammen i supergrupper for å overvinne de stadig større og farligere fiendene. The Wonderful 101 lar deg i ren Diablo -stil hakke og slå deg gjennom en spillverden sterkt inspirert av japansk populærkultur.
