Wii U experience is just as good, if not better than on other systems
on January 25, 2013
Won't review this fully because the game has been out a while and there are much better, lengthier reviews.
One standout feature on this Wii U version is the Genesis interactive comic you can choose to watch prior to launching your ME3 campaign. Even though I played this game on PS3 a while back, I never finished it (shame on me) and I needed a refresher. This interactive comic book was an awesome summary/recap, and is worth watching if a lot of time has passed for you between playing ME games.
Graphically, the game is just as good as the other systems, though more like Xbox in the color saturation and detail. The PS3 version is a little bit duller, but nothing too standout here on the Wii U version.
The GamePad is used for inventory management, which is pretty cool, but nothing standout here either. Instead of keeping my eyes on the TV for everything, I have to look down to manage inventory. It's a little annoying in that regard, but still a welcome feature in the heat of battle to not have to pause the screen to manage it.
Overall, this is the same ME3 experience I recall from the PS3, but tailored for the Wii U's GamePad. The most important feature: that powerhouse third party titles can and will work on Nintendo's new system, and gamers can expect to see much more in the future.
