WayForward may not fix every small detail with Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition, but the developer delivers an enhanced version of a great game. All the new content — HD visuals and remixed stages — elevates the title even more, making it a beautifully designed and challenging action-puzzle-platform experience.
At the end of the day, WayForward played it safe with Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition, and that's perfectly fine with me. Even if you bought and cherished the original on the 3DS, this new HD upgrade should be more than enough to drag you back in again, provided you didn't already tirelessly beat every par time.
So if you’ve never played MSF, this is definitely the way to do so. For people who’ve already bought the game on 3DS, it’s a judgment call. I certainly don’t have buyer’s remorse thanks to the new content, but you will basically have to play through that of the 3DS game again to get to it. But with those pretty new graphics, who’s complaining?
Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition is just as fantastic as its 3DS predecessor. The controls are flawless, the graphics amazing, the music some of the best we’ve heard in any video game. It all really comes down to which D you prefer, 3D or HD. The Wii U’s graphical muscle is the perfect partner for WayForward’s art gods, so even if you’ve already had your fill of the original there’s some pretty big incentive to double dip.
Mighty Switch Force est une jolie perle ayant fait son apparition sur 3DS. La version Wii U réitère l'exploit, mais en mieux. Amélioré du double de niveaux et de magnifiques graphismes HD, il conviendra à ceux qui possèdent la version portable, désireux de se replonger de nouveau dans l'aventure et de terminer les nouveaux stages, mais aussi à tous les amoureux de plates-formes et de casse-tête !
So Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition doesn’t go as far as it could have gone in remastering the 3DS original, but the changes that are present here are superb – veterans will love the challenge of the new Hyper levels, and the quality of the high-definition art is so good that it’d be worthwhile to buy the game on looks alone. Here’s hoping this is just a first testing of the waters for WayForward and Wii U, as I’d love to see what else this artistic studio could accomplish on Nintendo’s new HD canvas.

So if you’ve played Mighty Switch Force previously on 3DS is Hyper Drive Edition worth your ten dollars to ‘upgrade’ to? It really depends on what you value for your gaming dollars. The high definition upgrade is really pretty to look at, but hardly worth the ten dollar price alone. While it has the original levels, there are now new Hyper versions of each level to unlock which are extremely difficult variations of each stage already in the game. Essentially Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition is an updated title with HD graphics (which are done superbly), the aforementioned Hyper Drive Mode (hard versions of each level), and the ability to play on your TV or GamePad. It is a fun game that will challenge your gaming prowess, especially the Hyper Mode levels, but it’s a very short title without being too complicated. In the end it is quite a fun game for ten bucks, and I have no problem recommending it.

There really isn’t anything wrong with Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition. It’s a faithful port of the 3DS version in which the only visible alterations improve the experience. The puzzle elements are perfectly integrated into each multi-levelled stage, and the par times give you the opportunity to make it as challenging as you like.
That said, even if you’ve already played the 3DS version, Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition is a fantastic title that all Wii U owners should check out. The game offers a satisfying blend of platforming and puzzle elements, complemented by a host of new stages and beautiful HD visuals. It may not be a true follow-up to the handheld effort, but it’s easily the best version of it, which is certainly high praise considering the game was great to begin with.
Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition is a superb action puzzle title with clever stages that both get the brain working overtime, yet also offer up a thrilling fast-paced platform experience that will keep even the toughest of gamers on the edge of their seats. The number of improvements and remastered stages make this well worth a look for those that even played the game before. The only real let-down is the lack of online leader-boards for boasting about fastest level completion times, and perhaps a two-player face-off mode.
Die Umsetzung von Mighty Switch Force für Wii U war eine gute Idee. Das Spiel gibt sich zwar fast genauso minimalistisch wie auf dem 3DS, doch der Kniff mit den ausklappbaren Plattformen motiviert. Je mehr man das System verinnerlicht, desto eleganter hüpft, rätselt und schaltet man sich durch die alberne Science-Fiction-Welt. Dank der fünf Bonus-Levels ist das Spiel nicht mehr ganz so kurz wie das Original. Das Knobel-Abenteuer bietet zwar nicht ansatzweise den Charme oder Abwechslungsreichtum eines Fly’n oder Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams; in ihrem überschaubaren Mikrokosmos funktionieren die Rätsel aber richtig gut.
Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition arriva su Wii U forte di alcune aggiunte sul fronte della struttura (vedi i livelli bonus e la modalità Hyper) e del comparto tecnico, con la grafica ridisegnata in HD per l'occasione e la possibilità di visualizzare l'azione sulla TV o sul GamePad. La campagna standard sulle prime è semplice e banale, ma verso la fine diventa davvero complicata e i livelli richiederanno numerosi tentativi per essere completati. Il discorso vale ancor di più per gli stage extra, chiaramente. Ci troviamo dunque di fronte a un prodotto dall'approccio "hardcore", in grado di solleticare il desiderio di sfida dei puristi del genere (al di là dei primi momenti, come detto piuttosto banali) ma al contempo di lasciare interdetti coloro i quali si aspettavano situazioni più tradizionali e decisamente meno frustranti.
