Review: The Wonderful 101 | Stevivor

Reviewer Leo Stevenson writes, "The Wonderful 101 is another “great white hope” for the Wii U. Unfortunately, it’s just not as wonderful as it needs to be. The game is another in the long line of niche titles for a Nintendo console. The Wii U faithful will buy it out of principle, while everybody else will collectively shrug out of indifference." (The Wonderful 101, Wii U) 6/10

too much going on in the game to focus on what is happening.

Mushing all characters together was a very stupid idea.

This game could have been epic, but it's just kind of ok.

I like the idea, or most of it, but it's like watching the worlds fastest man finish in 6th place.

Ive already put 12 hours into just the demo. I was still finding deeper game mechanics(just from a demo). I highly enjoyed it from what I played.

The combat, when done right, is very satisfying. Gave me goosebumps.

some people want their "press X to win" Mcdonalds games(i like mcdonalds but want to show the idea lol)

some people appreciate theatrical qualities over actual "core game design" qualities

this group became popular in this gen, a game must meet certain "FLASHY" standard or it sucks

those aren't real gamers imo, im playing quake 2 on N64 right now and it's waaaay better than crysis 3 on max setting

some people appreciate theatrical qualities over actual "core game design" qualities , pretty much the only argument people have to defend games like uncharted,i love uncharted, but i love SC2, Mario galaxy,Metroid Prime,DOTA2 allot more, for that exact reason.Gameplay>all

I like the Wii U and I just didn't care for the game myself. You can't win them all.

utter drivel 'review.' Nobody i know has the extra money just to 'buy a game out of principle'. I bought the game because i played the shit out of the demo, and now im enjoying a game which, although probably wont sell great, is absolutely destined for cult status.

wow, interesting review to say the least. This guy would prefer to have all morph unites pegged to a simple button press - how convenient that the difficulty and challenge to pull off a specific move in the heat of the moment would suddenly be relegated to a simple X or Y press. Sounds like someone maybe found the game a little too hard. Graphics are perfect for this style of game, since it's based on a comic book I would expect a vibrant, cartoony look. And the rock solid framerate further helps the frenetic action. Finally he gripes about it being a button masher. I laughed at that remark. Clearly he has never played another Platinum game before. Bayonetta and Mad World were nothing but button mashers with insane combos.
