The Wonderful 101
Platform: Wii U
Rating out of five: ***
There are natural comparisons to be drawn with former Nintendo release Pikmin 3 as both require stewardship of numerous characters, but the two Wii U games take a very different approach.
The Wonderful 101 throws you in at the deep end to guide your many intrepid and aggressive heroes in order to stop an alien invasion - and offers little help along the way.
One stand-out element of the game is that it flips to and from the GamePad smoothly, setting a precedent for other Wii U games to make better creative use of the addition.
Gameplay can be a little fiddly and chaotic at points as you combine heroes as “Unite Morphs” to attack, but the comic-book aesthetics within a fast-paced, action-packed adventure really means this bold release packs a punch. - The Independent
