help with picking some wii u games

#1rawxfoxdogPosted 1/29/2013 12:15:14 AM
I'm getting a wii u very soon, and was planing to get cod black ops 2 and ac3 but I've read so many bad reviews I'm unsure. Are they worth it? I haven't played either on another console

Get them on another console. Not only will they run better on another console, you will be able to find them cheaper.

They both run just fine on the Wii U: as good as the PS3 versions. In particular, I've enjoyed Black Ops quite a bit. No issues with framerate or anything, and it looks the same as the PS3 version.

both are solid games and are worth a playthrough AC3 is an exceptional port BO2 tghe framerate drops a couple times in campaign mode but nothing to game breaking multiplayer runs smooth as hell though no framerate issues.

Top comment calls it BS with 50+ upvotes and no downvotes. That proves nothing other than that this is contested.

If you honestly believe it, you'll post a comparison video.

i already mentioned that also its limited to campaign mode the multiplayer doesnt suffer from the couple framerate drops that plague the single player mode. Lets be real here though 99.9% of the people that buy CoD every year dont give to craps about the story.

What it proves is the poster that wrote that can't spot frame rate drops because his fanboy goggles are too thick.

"The cut-scene and traversal comparison brutally highlights the areas in which Wii U struggles to match the Xbox 360 - high levels of on-screen characters clearly cause issues."

Click on the 2nd video. The frame rate comparison video.

End of story.

again its only the single player mode that has a couple framerate dips even the digital foundry article said the multiplayer has no issues so said poster could have honestly never played the campaign and thus never experienced the framerate issues.
