I agree with Kaos emerald.. Zombi u is another title I am getting for wii u, and unlike the resident evil games, which got boring after RE4.. this game totally puts the horror and scares back in the horror genre!!, I cannot wait to get this title!

High five! Great taste, those are the titles I am getting :)

Finally a non lazy, re-hash of a game worth mentioning. Keep pumping out new IP's like these and Nintendo just might be able to hang with the big boys.

-Well I guess I have to add Zombi U on Sunday as well, along with NSMB:U, Now what time should I start waiting in Line on Saturday??? ^_^
WeAreLegion  +   642d ago
Why are you waiting in line, if you reserved it?
SovereignSnaKe  +   641d ago
-I was going to pre-order, but I thought it would be more fun to go hunting or wait in line for one. In fact I called one our Walmarts and they said come in around midnight, because no one pre-ordered from them!! ;-)

-I was actually going to wait until next spring, then this past week with all the video's and reviewers getting there hands on the actual console a lightning bolt struck, and I realized "who am I kidding, I buy every Nintendo console, you know what you have to do"! ^_^

Pleasantly surprised on Zombie U, have to add it to the list. Tekken and NSMB U, didn't do to bad either... Great job! Now on to AC:III, Batman:AC, and Darksiders:II, can't wait for those reviews!

I kinda had some doubts that ZombiU might just be an overhyped game but this is giving me some reassurance, i can't wait to see the rest of the reviews.

Nintendo is going win the sales battle this holiday season. I read a few other reviews for ZombieU and they are all stellar.
chadboban  +   642d ago
Wait, why does this article have so much heat yet so few comments. Is it because ZombiU got a good score?
StrawberryDiesel420  +   642d ago
Wow, Official Nintendo Mag. Ummm, yea I will take this with a grain of salt.
noorbert  +   642d ago
yeah, i will hold my horses. Seriously ONM would hardly give those games bad scores. Also NintendoLand 90? You must be raterded if you think NintendoLand is 90, its tech demo for god sake.
dennett316  +   642d ago
Several other sites have reviewed the game and given it a high mark - 8/10 from Eurogamer and 87% from IGN. NOw IGN are IGN, they're a bit iffy and the Official Magazine is always a little fishy as I haven't trusted an official mag since the Phantom Menace PS1 review in the UK magazine that came out before the game was finished.
But Eurogamer are a solid site, with well written and in-depth reviews.

What I'm basically saying is, don't be so quick to write off the "tech demo" as you called it. Read user reports of those who played the various mini-games on show floors....countless people talking about how much fun they had with the games.
GameLord08  +   641d ago
It's certainly not a tech demo, and has much more depth to it than people care to realise. It's actually a blast to play, but your interpretation depends on how you play it.

IIRC, Chandra from ONM told me they spent 15 hours on each mini-game and carried out proper multiplayer tests, hence the score. It's much more than a compilation of mini-games.

The only game I wanna try is zombiU, and Mario for my kids. But the next gen systems is gonna make wiiU look like the wii (don't cry), it goin to look good, but not sick.
dennett316  +   642d ago
I think you're in for a surprise about the graphical leap that's to come with the next gen. If the rumours are true, MS and Sony are putting more into different ways of playing rather than sheer graphical power.

Not saying they won't be more powerful, just that I don't think the gap will be as large as between the Wii and PS3/360.

I just want more ram and AA for once, which i heard wiiu has so its a good start, i am scared off by wiiu hiding its specs though...

I tried out the wiiu at best buy...i did not really like it. Especially the controller. I was playing rayman. It force me to look at the small screen in of the controller for some parts of the game while there was not need to have done that. I want to look at the big screen tv not the small screen. The implementation of the controller screen seemed trivial. I found it annoying to look down at the controller to see everythign small when i could easily just look at the tv.

Of course i havent played Zombiu but i personally would find it annoying. Might be a good game without the controller implementation. why why why do i have to look at the stupid small screen controler to aim? i rather took at the tv. But the hacking while being attacked idea is very cool. But yea, using that contoller screen seems like such a pointless gimmick. This is from my experience of actually playing with the controller. Just a personal opinion.

Great score! Can't wait to pick up ZombiU :D

I think people in here have a fetish for Kaos. Reported all for off topic.

ON TOPIC: 13 days left and I`ll play this game. It`s the first western developed game I`ll buy in years and that says something about what the market have to offer; *guns*. I`m still playing Starcraft 2 though.
Drainage  +   641d ago
LOL all the Sony drones have decided to not comment but disagree with all the positive replies or trash the review source.

Looks like Wii U is off to a good start.

NSMBU- A ( DLC confirmed)
NintendoLand- B
ZombiU- A

And the great thing is Nintendo still hasnt even revealed their AAA big guns yet. Not even any 3DS interactivity yet, etc.

ONM staff are paid to review games. Gamestop staff are paid to sell games. Who are you going to trust?
Deku-Johnny  +   641d ago
I'm glad the games I'm getting are both gold.
