the best version with gamepad

herbs2041d ago (Edited 2041d ago )

Honestly people get used to ports for the Wii U. Not many studios are going to take the risk of making a game from the ground up for a system that isn't selling. As long as these ports are of great games and are the definitive version all round like Trine 3 or NFS MW for example, It's better than no games at all.

Nevers0ft2041d ago

As much as I'd like them to be releasing current games like Tomb Raider (which the Wii U will likely get in 2016 at this rate!) I don't really have an issue with publishers porting good games and pimping them for the Wii U... If I haven't played the game before, it's new to me :)

Some ports are confusing as hell though, why are Codemasters porting that awful F1 Kart Racer instead of Grid or Dirt for example?

dangert122042d ago

To be honest if it was on the wii u and it was not, there would be nothing to talk about as obviously it came out last they have had more time to create something better...potentially

pecorre2042d ago

Yay, another port, just what the Wii U needed!

Anyway, this is an awesome game and if for some reason you have not played yet buy it, it's very cheap now. You can find it for less than $20 on PS or x360 and for less than $10 on PC.

lilbroRx2042d ago

You can find it for those prices because it wasn't very good on those platforms. That why they are "improving" so much.

Why would people want to buy and inferior version of the game when they see that an all around better one is coming out?

Console deferment is what I will call this from now own. =trying to dissuade people to get another consoles version of a game than the one disliked by the deferer

DaPrintz2042d ago

That's garbage. The game was and is still great on whatever you can play it on.

mynameisEvil2042d ago

Yeah, no, the PC version is still the best. And it's cheap. And it's cheaper if you wait for it to go on sale, which it does occasionally. It controls better and it's more configurable. The only thing in this that I can see as a marketable improvement is the overhauled boss fights. Aside from that, it's some really minor stuff.

You can say, "BUT BETTA GRAFX," but you and I both know that the graphics are better comparative to other console versions, not the PC version.

Long story short: If people want to play this game, I highly recommend the PC version. Controls better, is optimized well, looks the best, and is potentially the cheapest.

"Why would people want to buy and inferior version of the game when they see that an all around better one is coming out?"

Because people won't buy a console to play a game that has been out for a year. Most of the people that were interessted in this game have already played it anyway. What the Wii-U needs are system sellers.

CGI-Quality2042d ago (Edited 2042d ago )

Do you honestly believe the nonsense you type?

"Why would people want to buy and inferior version of the game when they see that an all around better one is coming out?"

Um, since there was no clue of a WiiU version a year and a half ago (when the game released), they would not suddenly dream it up. That version MAY be the best (content-wise, the PC game will still look better), but that doesn't mean people were twiddling their thumbs for it, either.

InTheLab2041d ago

Over 3m in sales and a 90 metascore.

You can find it at those prices because the game came out in 2011.

LOL_WUT2041d ago

@ lilbro Wow, just when I thought you couldn't surpass yourself.

Capt-FuzzyPants2041d ago

This game is honestly probably my favorite game of this gen. It still amazes me that this got beat out by Skyrim and a few other games for GOTY. Deus Ex:HR was the best game of that year and I think Uncharted also came out that year.

It's actually not a port. interview below.

sorry to upset you


WiiUsauce2041d ago (Edited 2041d ago )

Yay, another baseless, Nintendo hate comment! Just what N4G needed!!

lol your comment is so full of uninformed fail. The game isn't just a simple port. The game is actually much better than it was on 360 and PS3 as CONFIRMED by Eidos Montreal.

Sure, you could pay 20 dollars for the game if you want a 20 dollar experience, but this game on Wii U is the definitive version, and not just because of the gamepad integration. The graphics are also better, shadows, lighting, and enemy AI are too.

These are all the improvements that have been made to an already great game to make it even better on Wii U:

-More than a port

-Eidos Montreal says it’s the “ultimate edition of the game”

-Eidos is working with Straight Right on the game

-Deus Ex’s boss battles were originally outsourced

-The three bosses have had their map layouts reworked to provide players with alternative potential strategies

-New hacking challenges are available to players who focus on hacking, and stealth options are available to those who focus on stealth

-Barrett’s map has been reworked to provide a second additional layer so Jensen can hide, forcing his foe to lose sight of him

-Energy system is more forgiving on Wii U

-Can have two energy cell recharge by default on all but the hardest difficulty

-Players can now use Jensen’s augmentation powers more freely

-Improved AI for enemies to include the tweaks made for The Missing Link downloadable expansion

-Enemy cone of vision has been retrofitted into the entire game for the Wii U version

-Missing Link DLC originally looked better than the main game since the developers were more comfortable with their tools when they came to create them

-Missing Link’s improved visuals have now been applied to Director’s Cut full game





-Anti-aliasing also wouldn’t work on the console but is in for Wii U

-GamePad used for new augmentation called Neural Hub

-The game’s Smart Vision augmentation, which allows players to see enemies through walls, was extended and fused with the GamePad, resulting in the Neural Hub

-Use the GamePad to see enemy health, armor type (heavy, medium, or light) and loot

-Can use the GamePad to navigate menus, display the map, augmentation system, inventory, etc.

-Swipe controls

-Grenade throwback: equip a proximity detector that alerts him to a nearby grenade

-If an enemy chucks a grenade at you, the GamePad will vibrate, and you can swipe the touch-screen to pick it up and lob it back

-Touch screen shows Jensen’s radar by default, which is a sort of hybrid between the main radar and the 2D map

-Can open the 2D map on the GamePad and use the stylus to write notes that will appear on the main radar screen

-Use the touch screen for the hacking mini-game

-Weapons that have a scope (ex: sniper rifle) will let you use your TV to center your target, then enter a precision mode using the touch-screen, which displays the cross-hair

-Around 8 hours of commentary from Eidos Montreal

-Icons dotted around the world can activate this voice over, and you’re free to continue playing as you listen

BullyMangler2041d ago

why would i want to get it on a ps3 or 360? when its coming to the wiiU = gamepad play = play facing any direction. either laying down, with elbows on knees looking down, under sheets while getting some and not to mention its special features. wiiU = creamer of consoles. ps4 and 720 better copy nintendo AGAIN and get a gamingpad of their own.
