Nintendo Life - Turbo: Super Stunt Squad Review

Nintendo Life - D3Publisher's Turbo: Super Stunt Squad for Wii U is the HD cousin of the poorly received 3DS racer of the same name. Expectations were kept low for the title, due to the handheld edition's lacklustre visuals, infuriatingly imprecise controls and lack of any actual "stunts." But Turbo: Super Stunt Squad for Wii U is a pleasant surprise, with immensely improved production values, more variety, and entirely different gameplay. Whereas the 3DS edition is a compromised Mario Kart clone, the Wii U adaptation takes its inspiration from the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series, replacing skateboards with the titular snail and his friends. This movie tie-in is far from perfect, but with the Wii U library still seeking more content and variety, it may prove a fun diversion until the big guns start rolling out. (Turbo: Super Stunt Squad, Wii U) 6/10
