Many gamers have a tough time keeping up with their hobby, as games are quite expensive. Nintendo games, which very rarely decrease in price, are especially challenging to continue purchasing and purchasing. After buying a $300 Wii U, many gamers may feel like they lack the funds to build an adequate library. That is where this article comes in handy! Stay tuned later in the day for a nice little feature about building a Wii U-exclusive library for relatively cheap; however, right now we are focusing on building a great library of Wii U titles for third-party multiplatform games!
Although the newest Assassin\’s Creed game will be skipping the Wii U this year, there is absolutely no doubt that some of the past games were stellar additions to the Wii U catalog. Assassin\’s Creed IV: Black Flag, in particular, was a wonderful adventure deserving of anybody\’s time. Sailing around the Caribbean world was not only fun but incredibly exciting. Each and every new enemy and ship encounter was a unique gameplay experience and the ship customization items were cool as well! When off the ship, the gameplay is equally exciting. Whether using parkour to traverse an environment or a sword to defeat some foes, Black Flag never lets up on the action and is an awesome action addition to your Wii U library as a result.
Everyone loves Batman as a superhero; however, many of the games that feature the character have failed to live up to expectations. The Batman: Arkham franchise, on the other hand, has gone above and beyond in creating an authentic Batman experience. Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition for the Wii U is the best version of the best game in the franchise. The open world of Arkham City is a joy to explore, as the atmospheric locale makes it a perfect setting for Batman\’s adventures. The plentiful selection of DC characters and villains will be sure to quench the thirst of any fan as well. Oh, and the ending is to die for.
When Deus Ex: Human Revolution first came to the Wii U, many gamers were outraged at the full $50 price tag for the over two-year-old game. After being on the market for quite a while, this gem can now be purchased for quite the low price. For those who do not know, this game features the story of Adam Jenson, a bionic man augmented with various robotic abilities. At its core, the game is an RPG, as the player has full control over dialogue options, side-quest, and important story decisions. Moreover, the player can play either stealthy or guns-a-blazin\’, but that choice is completely up to you, not the game!
Similarly to Deus Ex, Mass Effect 3 is an RPG featuring all the standard RPG elements. The game has experience points, side quests, dialogue options, story choices, and more; however, a large amount of the game is spent as a shooter, just like in Deus Ex. The difference? Whereas the latter features a futuristic story featuring a bionic man, the former features a futuristic space story with a galactic hero. Aside from the fantastic story, all the characters within Mass Effect 3 are masterfully created. Players truly care about their in-game compatriots and the game is that much better as a result.
Although easily the most expensive title on this list, no Wii U collection would be complete without a copy of Rayman Legends. Aside from the absolutely drop-dead gorgeous hand-drawn visuals and the masterful music, the game itself is an absolute blast to play. Whether playing single-player or multiplayer, it features intricate and purposeful level design with tight and responsive controls. The music levels included in the package are creative and unique and most importantly, the game uses the game better than almost any first-party Nintendo game.
Considered one of the exemplars of stealth gameplay, the Splinter Cell franchise has finally arrived on an HD Nintendo console with Splinter Cell: Blacklist. The Wii U version, in fact, is considered one of the best-looking and best-running versions of the game. As a result, playing it is considered an excellent opportunity for Nintendo fans to play a hardcore stealth title, which even features an extensive online multiplayer mode for players to delve into.
That rounds out our guide of putting together a great, diverse third-party Wii U catalog for a manageable price of $103. We also recommend picking up games like Super Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, Pikmin 3, Lego City Undercover, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze; however, for those looking for \”Nontendo\” gaming on the cheaper end of the spectrum, this guide should come in quite handy!
