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. From 'MadWorld' and 'Vanquish' to the fan favorite 'Bayonetta' and even ' Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance ', their focus has been on incredibly tight brawler controls and fast-paced...

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.

Game Informer

  • Conclusion: Part Bayonetta, part Viewtiful Joe, The Wonderful 101 is a game with a phenomenal, hilarious presentation and plenty of great ideas that is frequently hamstrung by its reliance on some unfortunate design choices.

Boring filler and shoddy camera keep The Wonderful 101 from living up to its name (review)

VentureBeat
10 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The Wonderful 101 is a good game … at times. Once I got the hang of its combo system, the battles were nearly always exciting and challenging, but Platinum’s Wii U debut has too much filler and a busted camera.
  • Pros: Fun combat The Wonderful 101 is all about bashing in giant-robot brains with a huge group of superheroes, and it’s just as fun as it sounds. Developer Platinum, which is probably best known for its stylish beat-em-up Bayonetta, has once again crafted a deep combat system that rewards skilled play...
  • Cons: Shoddy camera A few hours into The Wonderful 101, I already knew that I was dealing with a broken camera. I had experienced two separate areas where the camera got stuck looking up at the ceiling. I had to hold down the R-button (which supposedly controls the camera) to get the screen to kinda fo...

  • Summary: If there was a game I was as hyped about as Atlus' , it would have been for The Wonderful 101. Hearing that Platinum Games was making a brand new game exclusively for the WiiU was practically enough to get me on board with the system.
