Review: Futuridium EP

Here is a portion of a NintendoLife review of Wii U title Futuridium EP Deluxe

Futuridium EP Deluxe provides a fresh experience on the eShop, with vibrant visuals, a pumping soundtrack and a neat twist on its genre. It's also reserved for skilful players, with demanding stage designs being at turns exciting and frustrating. For those that are up to the challenge, though, this is a stylish and enjoyable effort that's well worth a look on Wii U.

Terraria - review

Here is a portion of a Terraria review from NintendoLife...

As you may have expected, the Wii U version of the game is quite the improvement over the 3DS release, featuring more content, more features and better overall performance. If you have both a 3DS and Wii U and were patient enough to wait and see how this version turned out, then let it be known that this is definately the better release. If you're looking for a compelling sandbox-style game with tons to do and optional online co-op, look no further - you've found it.

Twin Robots - review

Here's a portion of a NintendoLife review of the Wii U eShop title Twin Robots:

Twin Robots provides an enjoyable experience primarily because of responsive controls and precise character movement. Despite the steady increase in difficulty and cruel design of certain levels, it's still a fun challenge. Battery management of each robot adds to this and in many ways elevates it above the average platform game, providing an extra layer of complexity. Having to save one of the robots at the start of each level also adds a unique sense of pressure few other titles within this genre would normally offer. While Twin Robots is far from being the greatest platform game on the Wii U eShop, it's definitely a concise single and co-op budget download that is worth checking out if you happen to be a fan of the genre.

Monster Hunter Generations - Review

The following portion comes from a review over on Nintendo Life:

Monster Hunter Generations is another must-have for fans of the franchise, blending the old with the new for an excellent overall package. Hunter Styles add a little extra intensity and tempo to combat while this game also tries to welcome newcomers with optional tutorials, with Prowler mode undoubtedly designed to be quirky and alluring to players of all kinds. It does some things better than its immediate predecessor - Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate - but also a couple of things a little less impressively. The nod to nostalgia brings a lot of locations and quests to keep players busy, but loses a little of the narrative edge and focus of its predecessor.

Generations, overall, is the match of its predecessors that also boasts some innovations and improvements. This franchise is yet to reach near-perfection (total perfection is impossible, of course), but it's still one of the most enjoyable and immersive time-sinks to be found on Nintendo hardware. For any gamer ready for a long-term challenge, with tough battles and plenty of complexity to master, this is most certainly worth hunting down.
