REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

GameRevolution's Top 25 Wii U Games - 2013 Edition

Posted on Sunday, December 29 @ 12:00:00 Eastern by GR_Staff

It's no secret that Nintendo's tablet-centric console has had a rough time finding its footing. Whether the lack of third-party support or technical limitations are to blame, Wii U is home to but a handful of truly noteworthy games. That said, we were still able to scrounge up a list of 25 titles worth your time, despite the fact that several are Xbox 360/PS3 ports. Here's to hoping next year's list is far more impressive.



25. Darksiders II

Zelda meets God of War is the best way to sum up the Darksiders games, and the second entry in the series makes excellent use of this hybrid of experiences. It's got fast, fluid combat and loads of interesting puzzles that will test both your thumbs and your brain. Plus, you get to play as Death, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. How cool is that?



24. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Sam Fisher's latest outing is easily one of his greatest. Blacklist offers three different play styles, allowing gamers to either go in guns blazing, sneak their way through unnoticed, or employ a healthy dose of both methods. Sure, Sam may have a slightly different look and a new voice, but he's the same great stealth-action hero you've come to love over the many, many years sneaking with him.



23. NBA 2K13

The NBA 2K games are not just some of the best basketball games of all time, they're some of the best in the genre regardless of sport. 2K13 is easily one of the finest in the series, with a slew of different modes, jaw-dropping graphics, and superb controls. A lot of sports franchises tend to stagnate, but the NBA 2K franchise continues to buck that trend year after year.



22. Wii Party U

Looking for a game that will actually take advantage of your Wii U GamePad? Look no further than Wii Party U, a simple yet entertaining party game that makes use of the console's many gimmicks. Sure, it may be a little shallow, but there are loads and loads of mini-games to get lost in. Trust me, you'll be able to forgive the dated visuals and overly simplistic design. If you're in need of something that the whole family can enjoy and are sick of playing Nintendo Land, this game will fill that void nicely.



21. Batman: Arkham City - Armored Edition

I can count on one hand the number of superhero games that are worth your time, and Batman: Arkham City is number one on that list. Rocksteady took the excellent combat established in Arkham Asylum and built and incredible open world around it. If you're a fan of Batman, the sheer number of iconic characters and villains is reason enough to give this game a look. Plus, the added features on the Wii U version actually make interesting use of the GamePad.
