JibberX commented on Review: Ice Climber (Wii U eShop / NES):

Ice Climber comes from a place where you have to be good to play it, it doesn't reward being inept and it will continue to punish you for it indefinitely. This will leave players with a Marmite style opinion of it. People expecting Super Mario (or normal Mario for that matter) won't understand it at all. A lot of these early NES games were Nintendo exploring the concept of a platform, or even defining it. I think this is a route that should've been explored more, I for one think its a brilliant game and concept and execution and truly rewards the player if they invest. What it lacks in immediacy it makes up for in serious quality game play. Considering the complexity and nuance of the controls its a shame NintendoLife have decided to be down on it. But hey, I guess that's why there isn't Ice Climber Galaxy 2, Ice Climber Party 8 or even Ice Climber Kart.
