    As a remaster it may disappoint, but The Wonderful 101: Remastered is still the best way to play this Wii U classic.

    When The Wonderful 101 clicks, it's an amazing experience, though it takes time to get there with the sloppy control schemes and bad frame pacing.

  1. This is far from the most polished remaster I’ve played, and the original was a hit-and-miss affair to begin with. Judged in terms of Platinum’s own end-of-level trophies, this earns a silver award at best. But then that preposterous theme tune kicks in, sweeping your misgivings away for a precious handful of minutes. When you hear that music, you feel like you can do anything – even draw a circle correctly on your very first try.

    A very good game which needs time to understand. First use a gamepad. 2nd use a mid range pc on 4k 60fps and a large screen. Now you canA very good game which needs time to understand. First use a gamepad. 2nd use a mid range pc on 4k 60fps and a large screen. Now you can see what is happening be ok with playing each level twice to get the most out of it. This is because the game is so crazy that the first time you have no idea what is happening and the game doesnt explain anything well. But once you know what to do its awesome fun. It looks good on highest setting but isnt a true remaster but more of a port. This version is superior to ps4 and switch. I own 4 versions and PC is best. The controls are better but sometimes tricky as there is a trick to the game but easily mastered.

    Could Platinum have done more with the kickstarter money? Yes they could have and should have and might still but there is free dlc on its way. And a MP mode for 4 players.

    Def. recommend for short fast bursts for arcade action fun! 9/10 for fans. 1-8 / 10 for casuals.

    This game is pretty much Kamiya with no filter, which is both its most captivating quality and its detrimental flaw. The presentation isThis game is pretty much Kamiya with no filter, which is both its most captivating quality and its detrimental flaw. The presentation is great, there is a clear emphasis on sentai heroics which at the games best parts made me smile with childlike wonder. I would recommend playing this just to see the ending which is one of the most insane amalgamation of set pieces I have ever seen in a video game, it reaches gurren legaan levels of absurdity and deserves to be commended for the sheer spectacle of it all. The problem is getting to that point is a slog through terrible controls, a wonky camera, and some baffling design decisions.

    Combat in 101 is centered around drawing symbols with the wonder liner to unite the wonderful 101 into weapons and defensive abilities. the problem is that the wonder liner is janky as hell, idk if this worked better on the Wii U but for me on a controller it just doesn't work half the time or forms into something I wasn't going for. Its incredibly frustrating because when the liner messes up a unite that can leave you open for an attack, when you take damage your team members are scattered which means you have to run around and collect them or your weapons wont be as powerful. There is also an abundance of terrible mini games(a Kamiya tradition) like forming into a glider to cross gaps or where the game tries to be a shootemup(worst parts of the game), They arent THAT bad but combined with the jank wonder liner and terrible camera it just becomes a recipe for annoyance. Speaking of the camera its awful, its pulled waaay to close to the heroes so there are tons of parts where projectiles will hit you from offscreen or platforming sections where you couldnt see what was coming and get punished for it anyway.

    I really wanted to like The Wonderful 101. The presentation and writing made me grin from ear to ear, but the controls and camera just hamper the experience to the point where its not even fun. There are so many issues in this game that just dont exist in platinums other titles so I cant in good faith recommend it at full price.
