IGN-Mass Effect 3 Wii U Review

IGN:If, however, you’ve never played a Mass Effect game and want to jump on in using your shiny new console, then Mass Effect 3: Special Edition is worthy of your time and money. Mass Effect 3 on its own is still easily one of the best games of the year – and some (like me) would argue that it’s the best game in the trilogy – and that hasn’t changed on Wii U. The only thing that’s changed is your access to the rest of the series. (Mass Effect 3 – Special Edition, Wii U) 9.5/10

That's going to be a problem with a lot of these old ports. If these games didn't convince any wii fans to buy a ps3 or 360 before the wii U came out, then it probably won't interest them that much now. Nintendo gamers simply have a distinctive taste in games compared to the rest of the gaming world and game like Mass Effect and Arkham City won't appeal to them that much. All nintendo gamers really want to see is the first party family titles, not gritty adult oriented games.

I'm a Nintendo gamer (not exclusively though) and I wouldn't say that Arkham City and ME3 don't appeal to me. They do. Quite alot in fact. The issue I have though, is I've already played them on PS3/360. While these seem to have been good ports, they're just too old now in my opinion.

Obviously, Wii exclusive gamers will get a treat, but for myself, not so much.

Still, ZombiU and Mario will keep me entertained next week on launch day, with Aliens, Lego City and Rayman legends in the future.

It's no secret how little Manhunt 2, Madworld, and No more heroes sold on the wii. Nintendo has never lied about how they want to appeal to the average family, not the hardcore gamer, which is why nintendo's games don't see any success sales-wise if they get the M rating. The base of nintendo, even though it's very large, is also the least diverse and most selective when it comes to the games they buy. That is why a GTA game has never been and never will be on a nintendo console. The family audience they attract does not like those kind of games.

yeah...i strongly disagree (dont care about if disagree with me) i've been a nintendo gamer since i was a child yet i've owned ps1,2 and 3 and also being a nintendo gamer i say fanboys should speak for themselves. i play what people call ''hardcore'' games i love batman arkham asylum and city, never played ME but the demo was great. i love games like bayonetta,resident evil and all that stuff so speaking from experience those games dont appeal to CERTAIN people. there are people who own a ps360 and dont like those games

gamers are all different just because your a ''nintendo'' gamer doesn't mean you dont like ''hardcore'' games

"That is why a GTA game has never been and never will be on a nintendo console."

What about GTA Chinatown Wars? That was M rated and was designed specifically with the DS in mind. It sold more on DS then it did on PSP too.

I think you'll find that Nintendo gamers are the most well rounded of all gamers. Nintendo gamers love some good "gritty" violence as much as the next bloke, but we're also comfortable enough with ourselves as adults and don't feel threatened by our love of games like Mario~

Seriously. I own all 3 on my 360, and also the first 2 on PC. Maybe someday when it's $20 and I just want a quick go for old time's sake.

Mass Fail Ending 3

Still one of the best sci-fi trilogies in gaming history.
Hydralysk  +   1049d ago
True. Unfortunately it's still saddled with quite possibly the worst trilogy ending in gaming history.

A lot of these games came out before the Wii U. It isn't worth re-purchasing them. I'm looking forward to the unreleased games at this point.
