Cheapest I've seen it for Wii U. 360/PS3 versions are also $29.99, but I believe they've been on sale before since they came out earlier.

Who already played this game on Wii U?


That is an odd question. If you are wanting to know how it compares to the other consoles, I've read that it is generally not quite as polished, and the gamepad doesn't add much.
Will 'watch Family Guy with you and explain the pop culture references you don't understand' for food.

I did. Worst in the series.

Wii U additions are almost non-existent. The mini-map is on the second screen, and the touchscreen support is limited to a "call horse" button as well as weapon select if you hold L.

Abundant crashes, too. I grudgingly beat it and quickly sold it.

I've been wanting to try this game, but I think i'll wait. I feel like this will be cheap during the summer.

I owned it on the PS3, and currently own it on the PC and the Wii U.
To me its the best console version unless you are into the multiplayer part of it.
The Wii U enhancements are not spectacular but for the same price, I think they are noteworthy.

Along with what was mentioned, you can play on the TV HUD-free.
You can play the entire game on the gamepad itself.
You can use the pro controller if you want classic gameplay.
I completed it on the Wii U and never had an issue.

GameStop also has it on sale for that price as part of their Spring Sale. OP updated.

To be clear, the crashes and lack of system-exclusive features aren't why it's bad.
