Summary

Geathjerk Attacks! Can 100 Heroes Save the World? Earth has been pushed to the brink of annihilation by a diabolical force of alien invaders called GEATHJERK. Twice before, the CENTINELS (a secret global defense organization) enlisted the mysterious heroes of the Wonderful 100, who averted the greatest crisis in world history… barely. Today, the ruthless GEATHJERK have returned in a massive assault to wipe out humanity. Only ONE can unite 100 different heroes and change the fate of the world. Don the mask, gather these heroes against a common foe, and save the Earth from certain destruction as... The Wonderful 101!

Long story short, The Wonderful 101 is a very interesting game that won’t appeal to most people. While the combat might be deeper and more complex than Bayonetta, having to draw the shapes won’t appeal to everyone. This is also true for the cinematic feel and unique stage mechanics. If you don’t mind these things, however, then there is well over a hundred hours of gameplay to be found here.

Like most Platinum games, however, whatever issues might plague Wonderful 101 are glossed over with charm and an idiosyncratic vision. Sorting through dozens of heroes, picking out your leader and imbuing him or her with a personality feels like dumping your toy box on the floor and gathering up the ones you want to play with.

The Wonderful 101 is a must-have title for any Wii U owner who enjoys the challenge of classic gaming. I suspect my generation, us '80s kids who grew up gaming and are now in our thirties and early forties, will like it best, but all experienced gamers should give it a try.
