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.

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

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



15. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes


The LEGO games have a reputation for delivering really charming experiences that treat licensed IPs with the care and attention to detail that they deserve. The latest entry, which brings together a whole host of characters from the Marvel universe, is easily one of Traveller's Tales' finest efforts yet. It makes excellent use of the Marvel license, treating even the most hardest of hardcore comic book fans with respect, serving up plenty of fan-filled goodies.



14. The Wonderful 101

Platinum Games is no stranger to wacky game experiences, and The Wonderful 101 is evidence to this fact. Seriously, what other studio would dream up a game where you control 100 characters to create weapons by drawing images on the GamePad? This game deserves recognition based on its creative merits alone. If you're looking for something a bit off the beaten path, search no more.



13. ZombiU

Ubisoft's zombie-centric launch title for Wii U is one of the console's most interesting games to date. Not only does the game ramp up the tension with high stakes thanks to a punishing death system, it also doesn't allow you to pause the game when shuffling through your backpack. Should you want to grab an item from your bag, you need to then direct your attention to the GamePad, pulling your eyes away from the main screen where an unsuspecting zombie could pounce out of nowhere. It serves up a truly tense experience rarely found in horror games today.



12. Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut

Ever wished you could play a modernized version of Metal Gear Solid in first-person perspective? Look no further, as Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the game you so desperately crave. Stealth action has never felt so immersive and fun; however, the real draw comes from role-playing elements that have been embedded within the experience. Set in a future riddled with biomechanical augmentations, the game's protagonist Adam Jensen is able to enhance his abilities through an RPG-like progression system. It's incredibly rewarding and—more importantly—an absolute blast to play. Plus, the Director's Cut brings improved boss battles and Wii U GamePad support to the table, making it the best way to experience Human Revolution.



11. Little Inferno

Perhaps one of Wii U's most underrated games is Little Inferno, a charming puzzle title set in front of a fireplace. In the game, the player is tasked with tossing things into the roaring flames, as doing so with different combinations of items will yield different results. Sure, it's simplistic in its premise, but that elegant simplicity is what makes it so amazing. Seriously, you owe it to yourself to download this little gem off the eShop.
