E3 2012 Awards

Best Third Party Wii U Game

by Neal Ronaghan - June 14, 2012, 7:40 am EDT

It took a legend to stand out among the third-party games.

Rayman Legends

Publisher: Ubisoft
Developer: Ubisoft
Release Date: Wii U Launch Window

While we saw only a short slice of the gameplay, focused on the interaction between the GamePad and Rayman, what we saw was wonderful. It's similar to Rayman Origins, but now it's in HD on a Nintendo system with a brand new character and the promise of more zaniness on the way.

Honorable Mentions:
ZombiU (Ubisoft): Ubisoft's dark zombie game seems to do some interesting things, such as one bite and you're a zombie. If the game lives up to its promise, then we won't be calling it Red Steel 2.0 this fall.

I think its funny in the picture for Luigi Mansion that Luigi is playing an Original DS Phat.

Mad Dog McCree, 11 platforms in 22 years. How did this not get the Lifetime Achievement award? This should have been showcased at E3.
