  • Summary: [WiiWare] The Three Musketeers have been imprisoned by the treacherous Count Xavier and his sinister lieutenant, Count Orsini! Well, almost - take on the role of Porthos, famed member of the Musketeers, to save the day in this swashbuckling platform adventure inspired by the classic novel. Swing the Wii Remote to launch blistering sword attacks on your foes, avoid fiendish traps and discover hidden collectables. Packed with frenetic fencing, heroic leaps and fun puzzles, this is one adventure no aspiring hero will want to miss. [Nintendo] Expand

  1. The Three Musketeers: One For All! is difficult to recommend without also reciting a litany of flaws, but, in the end, we feel that those flaws are forgiven by the many things this game gets just right.
  2. The Three Musketeers: One For All is a game you'll really want to enjoy, but the few low points may hinder that.
  3. Ultimately, The Three Musketeers is a good 2D action and platforming game but is far from the better titles in the genre. Its imprecise control system and its inconsistent level design are its main flaws.
  4. 60
    The Three Musketeers could have been in the top tier of WiiWare games, but it sadly misses out on this due to some troublesome aspects like motion attacks and an irritating life system.
  5. 51
    A good platformer is buried within The Three Musketeers: One for All!, but there are too many technical issues and poor design decisions in the way.
  6. Ultimately, The Three Musketeers: One For All! is a mediocre game with numerous issues, both technical and design-related. It is also hard to recommend it due to its bland and archaic gameplay design. There are much better titles on WiiWare.
  7. Straight to the top of this month's Avoid At All Costs pile. Hugely repulsive. [Oct 2009, p.88]

    Superb game, with amazing visuals, audio and gameplay in such a tiny WiiWare package! My only niggles are the load times and occasional dips in framerates! Expand

    There are some flaws in this game, like framerate issues and 5sec loading times between areas, but it's a miracle to port a 300MB PC game to a 40MB WiiWare game. And the most important thing, the fun factor, is there. Three Musketeers, one for all is a very fun game, simple to play, with moderate difficulty and nice graphics. Overall, this game is awesome, a must download for any 2D platform game fans. Expand

    The controls took some time getting used to, but what a lovely game! This is one of the best WiiWare games out there, more like a retail game than a download... if you can live with the occasional framerate dip, this is a must-have title. Expand
