NES Remix puts a twist on classics
NES Remix is a downloadable Wii U exclusive that twists classic Nintendo games with a frantic pace and mission-minigames.
Using savestates to string together quick challenges is a really cool concept, and NES Remix pulls it off well. Doing a Zelda boss run, going BACK to the start of a Donkey Kong level, and finally being able to use a Starman on Bowser ... this is a fun package.
Plus, it actually does a really good job of teaching you how to play these games. Conveyance wasn't really a strong suit of the industry in the early '80s.
You have to remember that the entire foundation of NES Remix is built on games that are almost three decades old. They don't always hold up well, especially if you didn't grow up on them.
I also think the game selection here really hurts it. Mario and Zelda are awesome, and it's fine to put some lesser-known stuff in there, but it feels like the package is made up MOSTLY of second-tier titles.
I had a lot of fun with NES Remix. I hope it gets some downloadable content.
