Gameinformer-ZombiU Review:A Bad Start For New Wii U IP

GI:When the Wii released back in 2006, Ubisoft delivered a new IP called Red Steel on launch day. The game aimed to highlight the console’s motion controls with first-person shooting and gunplay. Unfortunately, the sloppy aiming and slashing instead foreshadowed how much the FPS genre would struggle on the console. Ubisoft is back again for with a new game that shoehorns in all the bells and whistles of Nintendo’s latest console. Instead of an exciting showcase of the Wii U’s interesting new technology, ZombiU demonstrates just how bad survival horror can get.

Lol want to play a real Zombie game, Left4dead 2 is still the best out there, specially the PC version.

A lot of the issues from the lower reviews, that I have seen, are not the game itself, but instead the poor implementation of Wii U features. The tablet is one touch only and doesn't work well so they have a lot of issues with it, especially since the game doesn't pause. This makes it frustrating when you need to get in your bag or do minigames while zombies are coming for you.

"This makes it frustrating when you need to get in your bag or do minigames while zombies are coming for you."

Isn't this such the case with Demon's Souls? Looking through the reviews, I can certainly say the game does have the winning formula but is unable to apply it properly on the game. My guess is that it wants to be played like DayZ but ended up being played as a L4D/Borderlands hybrid.

There's no future for the Wii U, it's dead on arrival, its traditional market has now been dominated by PS3 and 360s, the price is high and additional expensive storage is needed.
It's very tough for the consumer to justify a new system that's going to cost him around $400, and $60 for each game, when there are cheaper PS3s with the same functionality and hundreds of stellar games for 10, 20 dollars and whole series for $40.

PS3 with smartphone
and 360 with tablet

Yeah, it just shows that a review is something one should be really careful to put to much faith in.

I have no clue what to think. I'm going to get NSMBU instead of this game. I'm going to wait a little bit to see what users think of the game and then I might buy it. Based on reviews though, I can't decide if it's worth buying. Reviews are everywhere.
