I'm really looking forward to getting my Premium Pack - if my experience will be anything like getting my Wii, then I shouldn't need to buy another game for it for about 4-5 weeks.
I very much agree with that first part, they seem to be downplaying all the games you can get on other consoles, otherwise WiiU must have done something pretty bad indeed to make Mass Effect 3, Black Ops 2 and Arkham City worse than ZombieU. Not saying ZombieU's bad, but I seriously doubt it will be as good as those 3.
"Assassin's Creed 3 Wii U is every bit as good as on other consoles. If you're new to the series the present day story will be confusing, but Connor's tale is fairly standalone and can be enjoyed without prior knowledge of the series. This is a massive, lovingly crafted game that's absolutely stuffed with things to do, but the limited GamePad functionality and linear mission design are disappointing."
The first statement and the last one contradict each other in the AC3 review. Moreover, the game isn't a masterpiece but it does deserve more recognition than 80% would suggest.
