5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant bundle, 13 Oct. 2013
I've wanted a Wii U for the last year - but since Rayman Legends got delayed and pushed to all platforms, my main reason for buying one disappeared too. The Wind Waker HD proved too hard to resist though, and I picked up this bundle a week ago.

Seeing a Nintendo game running in HD is pretty swanky, but seeing the Wind Waker in HD is jaw-dropping. Genuinely, it looks absolutely stunning, and I would rank this up with Perfect Dark and Halo Anniversary as one of the finest HD updates around. The game itself plays identically, but with a number of wrinkles and niggles ironed out, including sped up animations and a streamlined chart hunt at the end of the game. The gameplay still stands up well a decade later.

The console interface is very nicely done, it feels like Nintedo have finally gotten with the times, with background downloading and installing, a totally overhauled e-shop, and best of all, the second screen feature, which really is marvellous.

I highly recommend this console. The only think holding it back was it's lack of games. Wind Waker HD is a real step in the right direction, and with Mario 3D World on the horizon, and Mario Kart next year, it seems the Wii U's prospects are soon to do an about face.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best 2D Platformer of this Generation, 2 Jan. 2012
New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Little Big Planet 1 & 2, Splosion Man, Super Meat Boy - Origins is somehow even better than them all. These are top of the genre games, and they're brilliant, but I've enjoyed Rayman Origins just that little bit more.

Lets get the most obvious point out the way - the graphics are sublime. It just looks so nice, I've spend about 15 hours with the game and they stun me every time I turn the Xbox back on again. The world is so vibrant. You really have never seen cartoon graphics like this. Unfortunately the game doesn't support 3D, but I can imagine the depth the mode adds would be simply stunning in Rayman Origins.

The controls are extremely responsive, and the animation is spot on. The levels are nicely varied, and you earn a new ability every time you move to a new world - 6 in total. There's a nice variation between worlds too - the desert level is also digeridoo themed for example, and another reminds me of the mountain levels from Uncharted 2, if you could sprint up the side of the mountain in one go. And then when you think you're done, another 30 or so levels open up. Very smooth Ubisoft, very smooth :)

If you enjoy platformers, I see no reason why you wouldn't enjoy Origins hugely. This game is the best platformer of the generation. This game deserves your attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Edition, 13 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Resident Evil 4 (Wii) (Video Game)
Having only had the American Version in the past, I was eager to get a copy that didn't need a freeloader and one that was worth forking out the extra dough for. And here it is I'm happy to say!

For a while I've felt that there's been nothing decent on the Wii, but RE4 has managed to rekindle the love. The controls work very well, and although a tad confusing from the off, I've grown to love the wii-mote aiming. They really are that much more involving (although I do sometimes wonder why the B Trigger isn't the fire button rather than the A button?!) It's a joy to having a game with damn fine graphics on the Wii, and they do seem have improved somehow from the Gamecube originals! Very nice.

In short, this is the Gamecube and PS2 versions in a conviently cheap package and is well worth considering if your Wii is gathering dust, or even if it isn't. Worth getting again?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun + Tapping + Earth, Wind & Fire = Good Times, 13 Aug. 2007
I want to start out by saying in no way is this a substandard version of the Japanese original, Ouendan. The flaws have been ironed and the western flair really adds a lot for me. Yes, this game is absurd, outrageous and extremely wacky, but it's so much fun tapping out the beats to some catchy tunes!

Sure, the game is challenging, but for the newcomers you get a literal helping hand to show you what to do, and there's a gradual progression as songs get increasingly more difficult. That's not a problem though, because you'll rise up through the ranks nice and quickly and eventually you'll be stepping out with some insanely fast rythms!

In short, this game is pure fun and it really does have that addictive quality that makes you keep coming back to better your old high scores and unlock some extra tracks! Let the good times uuh, spin!
