The Wonderful 101 Review – Wii U

  • 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.

  • 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 Bayonetta and the story and presentation have a sense of humor that not everyone might find funny, and the material it pays homage to might not be familiar to everybody.

The Wonderful 101

Destructoid
18 September 2013
  • Summary: The Wonderful 101 was originally pitched as a Nintendo franchise crossover title, and the remnants of that plan remain in the final design. The cast of playable characters are all easily linked to some of Nintendo's biggest names. Wonder Red (the game's lead) can break blocks and shoot fireballs with his hands, not unlike the worlds most beloved super-powered, baby-bodied plumber.

  • 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. Specifically, if it chose to explain itself better and reconsidered its reliance on inconsistent touchscreen input for precise gameplay demands, it would be a much better game.

  • Excerpt: The Wonderful 101 is a loving amalgamation of famed designer Hideki Kamiya’s best work. It has Bayonetta’s knowing humor, Viewtiful Joe’s comic-book spirit, and Okami’s sense of ingenuity. The game is more than a “greatest hits” though, and manages to dazzle on its own merit. Thanks to the novel Unite Morph mechanic, there’s never been a game quite like The Wonderful 101 despite it having the action game sensibilities of Kamiya’s previous titles.

The Wonderful 101 (Wii U) Review

Vooks
4 September 2013
  • Excerpt: It’s been a rather dry couple of months for the Wii U, and things are finally starting to look up with several major releases this month. Amongst them all, however, is the intriguing third party exclusive from Japanese developer PlatinumGames – The Wonderful 101. An action game at heart, Wonderful 101 has been an interesting project to follow – a taste that you don’t know you want until you give it a try yourself.

Official Nintendo Magazine
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: A word heard often enough begins to sound like nonsense. Something about repetition bores our restless heads, and reduces a term to what it truly is: the emanations of a fat tongue slapping against teeth while food-scented wind blows past.
