    This Wii U eShop iteration is without doubt the ultimate version on offer, following the already mightily impressive WiiWare and 3DS eShop releases.

    This instalment in the Art of Balance series is easily the best to date and – despite some minor shortcomings – should be on everybody’s Wii U.

    Requisite complications ensue in later challenges, and the different game modes provide a range of valuable experiences, but for the most part, this is a well-balanced package whose value towers over its asking price.

    Art of Balance on Wii U is still one of the best puzzle games around, with great and challenging gameplay. But it's not a true sequel, therefore if you played the previous versions keep that in mind.

    While it feels a bit unfair at times, the true quality of the overall experience still shines through constantly.

    The total package is a game of deceptive brilliance.

    Art of Balance’s Wii U premiere is a fine candidate for a fun, compelling and absorbing puzzle game. Its levels are wide and varied and its multiplayer modes will gather friends for long hours. A very welcome entry into the puzzle sector of the Wii U catalogue.

    I bought this game after seeing a trailer for it on YouTube and I am very pleased with what I got. The game offers 3 different controlI bought this game after seeing a trailer for it on YouTube and I am very pleased with what I got. The game offers 3 different control options being touch screen, motion controls, or traditional controller and all of them work fine. The game is very easy to understand yet can offer some real challenges that never feel unfair and always manage to satisfy you when you figure it out.

    My favorite aspect of this game has to be the fact that you can solve all the puzzles in different ways, which is not a very common thing for a puzzle game. This game also looks very pretty both on your TV and on the Wii U gamepad.

    Wii U logra obtener uno de los mejores ports para disfrutar de "Art of Balance" aprovechando el uso completo de sus capacidades de control,Wii U logra obtener uno de los mejores ports para disfrutar de "Art of Balance" aprovechando el uso completo de sus capacidades de control, por lo que obtienes la versión estándar con joysticks, la táctil de la 3DS y la clásica de Wii con los Wii Motes.
    El concepto es muy simple, tenemos unos bloques de madera y es nuestro deber apilarlos haciendo que no pierdan el equilibrio para pasar de misión. Ese concepto viene acompañado con una relajante música y una apariencia placida con un toque muy japonés tradicional, que nos permite sumergirnos en la experiencia.
    Como mencioné antes ésta versión es la más completa por los múltiples controles, además contamos con varios modos de juegos individuales y cooperativos que pueden ser una buena forma de introducirle a alguien los distintos modos de utilizar el Game Pad o el estilo inalámbrico de la Wii.
    Obtuve el juego canjeando monedas de My Nintendo y la sorpresa ha sido muy grata, recomiendo mucho "Art of Balance" para quienes sean fans de los juegos de Puzzles. Éste es todo un reto y se ve y se juega bien de cualquier manera.
