Popular online gaming publication IGN is one of the first publications to review Platinum Games latest opus, The Wonderful 101. The publication has awarded the game 7.4, stating that the game is flawed but eminently likeable. You can read the full review, here. The Wonderful 101 is due for release on August 23rd in Europe and September 15th in North America.
“I could never stay mad at the Wonderful 101 for very long. It’s just immensely likeable, and so full of personality and verve that I couldn’t help but grow to love it. After that initial difficulty curve, there’s so much here that’s worth sticking around for – particularly the ending, which goes on for about two and a half hours and builds to a gloriously unpredictable crescendo of ridiculousness. The Wonderful 101 is both a showcase for the amazing potential of the Wii U’s GamePad and for its pitfalls. It’s amazingly inventive and full of color and bright-eyed character, but its control problems are so persistent they’re unignorable. Even that doesn’t ruin what is otherwise a clever and adventurous action game, but The Wonderful 101 is kept from being as truly wonderful as it might have been.”
