You forgot about trine 2 an excellent game
deafdani  +   607d ago
Yeah, not including Trine 2 is a HUGE oversight, because it's one of the best games available at launch (and better than 90% of the games on that list).

However, it seems they only counted the retail games, not the eShop ones, which is a mistake, IMO.

So, what is the verdict on ZombiU from N4G users - I'm quite curious...

I really dig it... excellent survival horror. To me it's like Deus Ex and Left 4 Dead had a baby. Wish there was online competitive modes, but I understand it's a new IP just trying to get it's identity solidified. But it is real survival horror. There's not endless ammo, and sometimes you have to run/hide because you can't fight your way out. It has the Demon's/Dark Souls vibe of death having real consequences, but it's not so harsh to make you not want to play. I'll die and go right back in with a new character wanting more. Also, it takes a bit to get used to the controls, but once you do, you see the potential of the gamepad.

Feel free to friend me... need some Wii U friends... ID = guitarded77 (WiiU/PS3/XBOX/Steam)

If you play inverted like myself its a nightmare. It inverts the camera but not your aiming and motion aim. There's no excuse for something so trivial to be overlooked by Dev's.

the game is fantastic, just like ninja gaiden 3, razor's edge, I have beaten the game, just like zombi u, no muddy graphics, no jaggies, no wonky gameplay.. these are great hardcore games for wii u, no matter what the biased critics say, rent the games for your self, and ninja gaiden on wii u is going to have down loadable content.. another big plus to keep playing this killer game..
and as for zombi u.. you will throw away your copy of RE 5 AND RE6, this is survival horror at it's best.. try making it through the game without getting killed... I can do it with 5 people.. so yeah, it's super scary, and real challenging, and uses the controller very well.. multi player is a blast as well.. both games are worth the 60 dollar price tag!!
