Each of the games are fun in their own way, and they each make interesting use of the gamepad. The best part of the game is definitely the way it uses asymmetric gameplay for multiplayer. Albeit, it's a little disappointing that the competitive games are mostly different variations of tag, the ultimate asymmetric game. The single player games are interesting, and quite challenging at times too, giving them very arcade-like feels. Some people point to the Donkey Kong Crash Course game as a demonstration of challenge, but clearly they haven't tried the Octopus Dance game, modeled after the Game & Watch series. I talked about the sound earlier and I just want to give a mention to the music. Ryo Nagamatsu should be congratulated for successfully translating iconic Nintendo tracks to a more artificial setting while still sounding recognizable and lovable. There are also some original tracks in the game, like for the aforementioned Octopus Dance, and they also fit both the setting and the represented game themes. As far as content, this is much much bigger than Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort. Each game has multiple levels, and more are unlocked as you progress farther. Each of the levels also have plenty of depth to them, tempting players to risk themselves for rewards in the form of coins. And besides the games, there are the unlockable figures for the plaza with said coins and Miis to interact with via Miiverse.
I can't say it's worth $59.99. It's up to the buyer what they think is worth that much, but I can say that for the price of the Wii U Deluxe, this is a very great inclusion.… Expand

It's pretty fast-paced and intense, I suppose, but I haven't played the other Devil May Cry games, and from what I've heard, the combat is comparatively watered-down, so I guess that makes it pretty disappointing. In terms of the story... it's my policy that the worst stories are not poorly paced or insulting, but offensive. And I have never seen a more offensive game since Call of Juarez: The Cartel. I think this is even worse actually. The story seems to cater itself to make me like it, making what is practically Fox News the bad guy, and making references to "They Live," but it reaches a point in the story where they just cross the line. When they first alluded to what was going to happen, I thought it'd be interesting for Dante to reject that path, showing how he's better than the villain. I guess that was too sophisticated for him though, since by the end, I was cheering for Mundus. I don't want people to buy this game. It would send the wrong message to the industry. This game is offensive. I feel sick.… Expand
