Use your fighting skills to dodge enemy attacks and chain together combos, and then head to the shop to buy new items and abilities. Recruit friends to fight cooperatively by your side in multiplayer, or compete head to head in battle mode.

"Viewtiful Pikmin" is what came to mind when I first saw The Wonderful 101, but boy was I wrong. This game defies almost every attempt to shoehorn it neatly into any one genre. The gameplay is unlike anything I've ever seen in a game before, as is its art design, storytelling, and overall approach to using the Wii-U's features well as an exclusive, and it's all fantastic too. Hideki Kamiya made this game. I love Kamiya-san. He has made some of my all-time favorite video games over the years, from the aforementioned Viewtiful Joe to one of the most brilliant gaming masterpieces ever made, Õkami, the guy makes nothing but unique, exhilarating video game gold, and now you can add The Wonderful 101 to that list. Seeing as how this is such a densely designed, wholly unique game, this may end up being a long review, I warn you right now. If you don't like long, detailed reviews, give this one a pass.

The story behind The Wonderful 101 is as crazy and hectic as its gameplay. Basically, you play as, not one protagonist, but many simultaneously, as a worldwide superhero initiative entitled The Wonderful One-Double-Oh.

To be short, this game is beautiful, action-packed, hilarious and most importantly: FUN!

Story

You control a group of heros who are tasked with saving the world from an alien invasion. The Heros are eccentric and rediculous, and the aliens are sometimes immense, sometimes comical, and sometimes both. As you progress through the game and explore new areas and encounter new enemies, you can recruit average citizens to help you and may even come across "hidden" heros who permanently join you in the fight to save Earth.

Gameplay

Your group of heros have the unique ability to band together to morph into several different forms. For example, your group can morph into a giant hand (for punching, grabbing and turning dials), a sword (for slashing and picking locks), and a hang-glider for flying, as well as MANY others (don't want to give too much away). These different forms can be constructued using the touchpad or the right analog stick to draw different shapes corresponding to the form you wish to take. For example, drawing a circle on the touchscreen morphs the team into the Hand, whereas drawing a straight line morphs the team into the sword.

As you progress through the levels, you will use many of these different forms to solve environment puzzles, such as how to clear a large gap, or how to open a door locked by a combination dial, etc. At various points in the level, alien enemies will be warped in to your area to fight against you. Using your skills and morph abilities, you dodge enemy attacks and deal damage to the enemies until you emerge victorious.

Remember how you felt as a kid when games could absolutely delight you? The Wonderful 101 makes you feel the same way.

There's a bit of a learning curve but this game really rewards perseverance. The action is fast from the get go, the important thing to remember is to stay calm, pay attention, buy Unite Guts as soon as possible, and if you find that things aren't quite clicking watch some of the vids on youtube.

To get to the point:

The Wonderful 101 is a superb game. There are many misconceptions about it, most of which don't hold water. It is not nearly as difficult of a game as its reputation suggests (unless purposefully played on very hard, unlockable difficulties). Its play mechanics are clear and easy to understand, though they have nuanced depth and finely grained details to discover. It is not actually aimed at a young audience, and its colorful super hero theme is intended to be nostalgic rather than juvenile.

What TW101 is, is a long, varied, content-packed stylish action game. It is most similar to the iconic Japanese-developed console action-adventure games of the Playstation 2 generation, and its execution and attention to detail is on a level perhaps not seen since then. With the exception of Platinum Games' own Bayonetta.

There's very little to actually criticize in the game, with the caveat that it is a title that provides more payoff if the player is willing to invest in it. Its mechanics, rather than being deceptively simple, are deceptively complex - by virtue of being unique, they appear less accessible than they are at first glance. But once the idea behind the game clicks with the player, it's very straight forward. There is also a valid reason for using totally original mechanics as the game takes full advantage of them to create an experience not like literally any other game out there.

Most of all, TW101 succeeds in recreating the feeling of excitement and discovery from early eras of video games, without actually being regressive. This is not a retro-game trying to imitate something old (or classic) in order to recapture past qualities. Instead it is actually a very modern game designed with the values of a classic console game generation in mind.
