The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths 

 

There are plenty of adults who are too arrogant to enjoy shows created for children. I am thankfully not one of them. I find all kinds of entertainment value in kids shows. I can see the little lessons the writers, and artists are trying to relay to the viewer. Sometimes they are very subtle with how they are trying to move the culture.

The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths reminds me of so many other children to teenager television shows. We have three kids who outsmart pirates, and other bad guy adult characters. They do so with cunning, and intelligence. Players that play The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths will also have to be very cunning.

The team based puzzle action is a tried and true formula that has worked for decades. The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths implements it amazingly well. I knew that swapping between characters was going to be the order of the day in this Wii U game. BTW The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths is also on the Nintendo 3DS. The games are generally the same.

The biggest difference between the hand held and home console versions of The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths is the graphics. The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths looks way better on the Wii U. That bigger screen helps those cut scenes shine. It is like watching a cartoon on Blu-ray.

The quest in The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths is very lengthy. Especially for the $14.99 price tag. It is a shame there was not some Cross Buy promotion between the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. That would have been awesome - to save on the Wii U, and then take that save on the 3DS.

There are some mild Eastern religious beliefs in The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths. As well as mythical creatures like dragons. The puzzles can get boring in The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths, especially if you missed some clues.

The pirates in The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths are so slow. They really take their time looking different directions. The timer was not on the screen for the Wii U (like it is on the 3DS version), so knowing where I stood with that was a bit confusing. Unless I wanted to pause the level.

I like how The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths is non-violent. The kids are on a quest. Families will get their moneys worth out of The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths on the Wii U. A basic reading ability is needed to play The Mysterious Cities of Gold Secret Paths.
