NDAs are being lifted, sites are being refreshed, and the world watches in wonder as the verdicts roll in with Nintendo's newest home console. Keep an eye on this thread for the latest reviews hitting the internet!
With ZombiU, they love the fact that it is truly a survival horror game, and a legitimately scary one as well. The attention to detail is apparently fantastic as well, they use the example of the ingame depiction of London Underground stations, featuring status boards, announcements, turnstyles, the round help buttons, etc. They also see the gamepad as being used excellently, for example as a scanner, inventory, controlling security cameras, etc. They have a few minor issues and glitches with the gameplay, but nothing too major. They also wished it had online play and Miiverse functionality. Overall, they claim that it is 'the game you'll be switching on to illustrate why the WiiU is so great'.
thanks for this, the reviews are good so far and i will keep checking back periodically. Mario is a must play, thanks to review i may now actually take the wrap off my nintendo land copy i get for free. I am waiting for ZombiU now and to see how stable Darksiders 2 is as a Wii U title, as well as Black Ops 2.....
Considering IGN moved their ZombiU review to the 18th as well, I think it might be embargoed. That's not a great sign, though, since you'd think positive reviews would be good for those on the fence about the game (like me). But since we've heard a lot of good things about the game, I'm hoping the embargo has nothing to do with its quality but rather something unrelated.
At any rate, I'm definitely curious to see how that game ends up. We could all have mostly guessed that Nintendo's own titles would work out, but ZombiU has been the big launch wild card for awhile.
