We all love the idea of an aquarium. There’s something so mysterious and fascinating about creatures that live in water that makes us want to stare at them. Looking at a fish tank is one of the most soothing things you can do. In reality, owning one can be a bit of a pain in the arse thanks to cleaning, daily feeding and that you can never seem to keep the buggers alive for more than five minutes. That’s where the virtual world can come in to solve all those problems and Aqua TV is here to fill the gap on the Wii U.

After a seemingly never ending release schedule of Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry games, Ubisoft decided to bring a brand new IP into the gaming world. Needless to say, a lot of people were excited. It did look great to be fair. A new open world game where you can hack into just about anything. You were the puppeteer and the city was at your command. Ubisoft really pushed it promotionally and it was a huge success sales wise, even being the fastest selling new IP ever in the UK. The sequel, Watch_Dogs 2 is due for release very soon and with that in mind I want to look back at the original. But did it ever live up to that expectation? Let’s find out.

The more I think about the premise of Criminal Girls 2, the more awesome it is. The concept is really cool. In this version of Earth there are delinquents, classified as such because they died before they could become true convicts. Basically destined to be criminals, but died too soon. They are sent to the Hell Spire where you, as a programme instructor, are to guide them back to Earth and let them be reformed. It’s a cool modern day Japanese Sci-Fi thing and I really like it.

Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is often referred to as a literary classic, one told countless times in various forms of media since its original 1865 publication, and especially since it entered public domain in 1907 whereby it was no longer subject to copyright. Taking advantage of the situation on the Wii U is Brave Rock Games with Alice in Wonderland.
