Citizens of Earth (Wii U)

Citizens of Earth review (WIIU)

Reviewed on January 26, 2015

Maybe someday, patches will come along and make the game as great as it deserves to be, but we're not there yet...

Super Toy Cars (Wii U)

Super Toy Cars review (WIIU)

Reviewed on July 30, 2014

The mini-car racer is still a fun concept, but Super Toy Cars is neither refined enough nor interesting enough to justify your time and money.

Shovel Knight (Wii U)

Shovel Knight review (WIIU)

Reviewed on July 03, 2014

An attempt to revive old school sensibilities that works much better than similar efforts often do.

Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)

Mario Kart 8 review (WIIU)

Reviewed on June 15, 2014

Mario Kart 8 is fun. It creates a racing experience that is fast-paced and full of adrenaline, while still retaining that classic Mario Kart zaniness. And that’s important, because somewhere in the last few years, the series felt like it was losing its sense of identity.

Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails (Wii U)

Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails review (WIIU)

Reviewed on May 19, 2014

It never becomes a loveable fur-ball, but perseverance gradually reveals the intricacies and rhythms of Scram Kitty, transforming it into a tactical, thrilling, and ferocious challenge.

Super Mario 3D World (Wii U)

Super Mario 3D World review (WIIU)

Reviewed on November 29, 2013

The developers at Nintendo were brave enough to make variety a mandate and they were skilled enough to ensure that every element contributes something exciting to the whole. The result is my personal pick for the greatest 3D platformer to date.

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures (Wii U)

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures review (WIIU)

Reviewed on November 14, 2013

Pac-Man's cartoony new platforming adventure doesn't do as good a job as one might hope of getting into the spirit of things.

Rayman Legends (Wii U)

Rayman Legends review (WIIU)

Reviewed on October 31, 2013

Rotund plumbers take note: this is how you do it! Rayman Legends is the new champ of simultaneous multiplayer platforming.

Disney Infinity (Wii U)

Disney Infinity review (WIIU)

Reviewed on September 22, 2013

Infinite possibilities on the drawing board suddenly feel quite limited once they've been torpedoed by disappointing execution.

DuckTales Remastered (Wii U)

DuckTales Remastered review (WIIU)

Reviewed on September 22, 2013

DuckTales Remastered is neither a complete failure nor the triumph it so easily could have been.

LEGO City Undercover (Wii U)

LEGO City Undercover review (WIIU)

Reviewed on June 25, 2013

Lego City: Undercover is a game I recommend for all the Wii U owners that have been waiting for a new game since launch. The game is hilarious and is fun to play for all ages, for both the casual and hardcore.

Just Dance 4 (Wii U)

Just Dance 4 review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 30, 2012

You might not realize it, but even simple repetitive motions like lifting your arm and then lowering it can start to take a toll on a person—most particularly someone who spends his days sitting in an office chair and typing words about video games—and that’s even before you start lifting your legs up high, or twirling in circles like a rose petal caught in a whirlwind.

Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper (Wii U)

Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 30, 2012

Properly equipped, your warriors have amazing range and can cleave through hordes of enemy soldiers, even on the Normal difficulty setting. Special moves are also available and they can inflict even more damage, but in general you can save those moves for the more challenging bosses that sometimes storm the field. Those more gifted foes mostly block your slower special attacks unless you wait until they’re open, so you’ll be forced to also block attacks and wait for a limited opening if you want to unleash some real pain.

New Super Mario Bros. U (Wii U)

New Super Mario Bros. U review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 29, 2012

New Super Mario Bros. U isn't just a bad title for a game but a misnomer as well.

Tank! Tank! Tank! (Wii U)

Tank! Tank! Tank! review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 24, 2012

Unfortunately, the only objective you’re ever given is to kill everything that moves. That’s not entirely bad, since mayhem can be a lot of fun, but there aren’t enough enemy types available to keep things interesting across so many stages. You’ll wind up fighting most of the same monster waves three or four times over the course of the campaign, and the last 20 stages or so are mostly just battles against the same few giant enemies.

Rabbids Land (Wii U)

Rabbids Land review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 16, 2012

The game changes up who faces who during each event, which keeps things relatively even and ensures that no single player is always stuck going up against a computer opponent. Still, the whole process is definitely the most fun if you are competing with at least two human friends… even though that means you’ll be passing the gamepad and any other controllers around the room as if they’re participants in a game of musical chairs.

Game Party Champions (Wii U)

Game Party Champions review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 16, 2012

However, the game is more challenging for newcomers than the developers likely intended, mostly due to the control scheme. The game simply requires more precision from the touch pad than it allows. For instance, the Basketball attraction features three hoops that move toward the screen, then recede or spin. You have to move the gamepad to affect the direction your arrow points, and then you have to swipe the stylus just the right amount so that you throw the ball hard enough but not too hard.

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two (Wii U)

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 11, 2012

Unfortunately, Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is a disappointment compared to its imperfect but promising predecessor. The ambition and inventiveness that were so evident the first time around have been obscured by a sloppy retread that may well leave you wondering why anyone bothered to create it.

Wipeout 3 (Wii U)

Wipeout 3 review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 07, 2012

Courses in Wipeout 3 feature a variety of obstacles, but for the most part the differences between one hazard and the next are cosmetic. You’ll need to swim across pools of murky water sometimes, but in general you are running along platforms that are suspended above a massive liquid field. Falling into soup when you’re not supposed to will knock you back to the last checkpoint.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed (Wii U)

Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed review (WIIU)

Reviewed on December 05, 2012

The new tracks also do a great job honoring their source material. Of particular note is the NiGHTS Into Dreams stage, which finds you flying through the familiar orange rings and even chasing after a fat ballerina on an oversized ball who crashes through walls just like one of the bosses in that classic title. It’s quite spectacular and it shows that Sumo Digital really is familiar with the previous titles that inspired this kart racer.
