Rise of the Guardians video review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video review of Rise of the Guardians from Torus Games and D3Publisher for the Nintendo Wii U. Based on the DreamWorks film, Rise of the Guardians is the same top-down beat 'em up game as the 3DS version. The difference? It looks a lot better, and it has four-player co-op. That's, like, automatic improvement. But at its core, it's still a very textbook and dull button-masher. Not exactly thrilling stuff, but it is much better with the GamePad. This video review features video gameplay footage of Rise of the Guardians for the Nintendo Wii U and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
