ZombiU Review

April 21, 2016 // 0 Comments

For what it is, ZombiU has many great ideas that with maybe another year in development they would have been polished and would have given us the game we all thought this one would be. The incorporation of the GamePad is the best use out of any of the launch titles for the Wii U and the permadeath makes the experience more tense and scary, but the clunky movement and combat become annoying as does the clipping animations and rough graphics.

The Wii U version of Bayonetta is by far the definitive edition, as it has a higher quality frame rate, smoother animations in combat, and some fun Nintendo themed outfits. Bayonetta is a strong character that I instantly fell in love with, not because of her obvious over-sexuality, but because of her wit, charm, and charisma. The worlds Platinum has built to play in are a remarkable feat, and the combat rivals the very best in the genre. I recommend Bayonetta to all who haven’t played it, and those who have? Get it again on Wii U. The North American version of Bayonetta 2 comes with the first entry, so make sure to add Platinum Games’ stylized heroine to your shelf. [Read More]

Shovel Knight is in a class of it's own in terms of gameplay, graphics, and design. Yacht Club Games is one of the most talented developers in the world, indie or otherwise. [Read More]
