Average User Score: 6.5Dec 4, 2012My view might be a little off as its the first COD I've owned (have played others). I like BF formula better, but picking up my WiiU, I wanted the local multiplayer this offers as well as its online.
I never have cared for FPS story mode, so it doesn't affect my score.
The multi-player is a lot of fun and I'm glad I bought it. Additionally, with the various control options you have with this on WiiU, plus the capability to only play on Gamepad (TV off or doing something else), its easy to say this is the best version to own.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.8Dec 4, 2012This is a great game with friends and family in local play. Out of the 12 attractions, at least 6 are something you'll play over and over and over again. You'll fight to be the one using the gamepad and there are even a few that are a lot of fun as solo player options. However, its clearly the multi-player that makes the game.
This game alone is worth the difference in price between a basic and deluxe set. Let alone the increased memory, stands, and digital discount offer.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.0Dec 4, 2012Solid 2D Mario game with a ton of new platforming ideas and conquests. Very nice throwback to Super Mario World and Super Mario 3. Use of Yoshi is done well and the overall content is worth way more than the entry fee. Like the Wii game before, its multi-player is insanely fun.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.5Dec 4, 2012People saying this is below 8 are crazy. Its survival horror and should be hard, dark, moody, scary, limited attack capabilities, etc. Its not an adventure or shooter or anything else. This is by far the best game of this genre in a long time.
The graphics, while not AC3, BF3, and so one, are still great. The lighting is perfect. The grimy and dark textures fit the idea behind the game. Additionally, its a new IP on a new console. Ubisoft was taking a risk and couldn't go all out with a tens of millions of dollars in a budget. However, they still look fantastic in HD running at 720p at a stable framerate. If you're complaining about the graphics, then why are you on consoles. You obviously need to be on high-end PCs.
The controls are perfect. The gamepad adds incredible options as well as a significant part of the complexity and unique balance in this survival horror where you can be killed without proper planning due to the time involved in using your backpack or limited weapons with quick access. Then you have integration with your friends. OMG this is awesome. Either the multiplayer (which basically is a shooter at this point) or that your friends dead survivors appear in your game, you'll love it.
This game deserves to at least be in the 8.5 range and its easily a top5 game on WiiU right now. If you like a challenge, like to be scared or at least on the edge of your seat a lot, you need this game.… Expand
