Really Bad

Don't take it seriously

While I was trying to play this game I must've found an entire walls worth of complaints I had for it. From the controls being unreliable to glitches like when you try to draw a straight line to summon the sword and instead of doing just that, the game cancels it and you end up getting walloped in the face.

It's exactly how it sounds though, the controls are extremely unreliable, there are random glitches that will screw you over through the entirety of the game, the camera is terrible in that you can't see what's going on most of the time while you're actually doing stuff and you can't find which way to go when you're just wandering around. The AI for some of the enemies is just too strong in the beginning of the game when you don't have any means of fighting them, I.E. trying to fight shielded turrets without dodging, blocking, or the whip. And you don't collect nearly enough money to buy any of the higher level upgrades for which you either have to spam a few levels, wait till they're not much use anymore at the very end of the game, or rely on space veggies and the card. Not to mention the terribly done scoring system, in which extra challenge levels you will find and more than likely need more than one attempt to complete count toward your overall level score for some reason.

I have more but I don't think they're needed. Overall I think this is a fun game and it's ridiculousness was entertaining. I enjoyed it a lot actually.... But only after doing one thing.... Which I recommend to anybody else who wants to play it:

Don't take this game seriously please, you'll frustrate the p00p out of yourself. Just put it on easy or even very easy and enjoy it. I played through 3/4 of the game on Normal and I hated the heck out of it. It's not worth the frustration.

Game would not work in my system. Game would update then shut my Wii U down and I had to unplug to do a hard reset. Will rent again at a later date to see if I have different results. Would actually like to play this game. I'm also curious if others have had the same issue.

This game is off the charts on awesomeness! I wrote a review on Miiverse. Simply put "Awesome game! Full of humor, action, story, and amazing design, along with precise controls, booming audio, and awesome style! what more could a gamer want!!!" I truly believe this is one of the best games this year! I love the narration because, I love comic books and this has a very old school super hero motif to it. the vibrant colors are eye popping and work extremely well for this game. I have had no problems with the controls. Drawing on the gamepad is accurate and responsive, and is a good use of it I might add. the combat is fluid especially when you learn how to use multiple team build attacks at once! knowing how to use this skill becomes extremely important because the levels can get a bit difficult, especially some of the boss battles. By the way, the boss battles are extremely cinematic and jaw dropping, forcing you to use different techniques for one boss! In my opinion this is a very strong title that is completely underrated. A system seller if I've ever played one. 10/10
