A good buy...Love it...There is tons to explore, and it is consistently fun just to run around Mechanically, I think the battles are a bit worse than the original, since the uniqueness of the cast's movesets was abandoned for a much more generic class system, and in the end it did not really seem to matter much which I chose, or who I took with me....Exquisitely crafted locales, a decent story, outstanding gameplay, customization and leveling up, excellent battle mechanics, and a huge world to explore make up Xenoblade Chronicles X. Personally, this has become my game of the year....Honestly, if you do not simply enjoy these elements and this type of gameplay, itself, (exploring huge worlds and enemy types, fighting lots of things, leveling up, improving yours and your party's equipment, etc.), then you may not find this game very amazing.
The intergalactic war changed everything and left a terrible wake of destruction and death. The few Earth survivors who remain are destined to make new lives in a world that is full of vibrant beauty, but also home to lethal creatures and unknown dangers. Every day is a struggle for survival when your surroundings are so uncertain — death could wait in the form of an enormous and terrifying dinosaur, or the sting of the smallest insect. To find your way in this strange new place, you'll need to hone your abilities and sharpen your fighting skills — do you have what it takes to survive?
Designed by the creators of Baten Kaitos and Xenoblade Chronicles, Xenoblade Chronicles X plunges you into a world ripped apart by intergalactic war in a massive sci-fi role-playing experience that pits you against a threatening environment teeming with dangerous creatures. Wage combat against powerful beasts, from tiny bugs to towering dinosaurs. Climb aboard a weaponized mech and explore the far corners of a sprawling open world created with vivid, detailed high-definition graphics. Align yourself with a class and begin developing Arts — combat and defensive skills that can be customized with an Arts palette as you learn new abilities. Your powers are substantial, but once an Art is cast, a cool-down period must pass before it can be used again. Customize your playing experience by personalizing the main character's appearance, including gender, shape, height, skin color, voice and tattoos. The challenge ahead is perilous — are you ready to forge your way in a strange new world?
It Works!...Love it....I will not bother reviewing the game, since much of the original game remains untouched, but there are a few little things that make it just a tad bit better from what the previous generation of gamers first played....This game was "good" on GameCube and Wii, but great on Wii U. Graphics are obviously much improved with higher detail on characters, enemies, and textures although some environments like the canyon still have too many unnaturally sharp angles and the camera can still get into an angle that causes clipping....It's a pattern that takes place over roughly a decade wherein a new Zelda game is released to universal critical and community praise, then scrutinized, then bashed, then loathed and hated as "the black sheep" of the series, then reevaluated and slowly accepted again, until the final step wherein it is viewed as a beloved cult classic.
The expansive kingdom of Hyrule is a peaceful one, yet a mysterious dark force has invaded, shrouded in twilight. Faced with the task of restoring light to the realm, Link must set out on a quest, but can only do so once he embraces the darkness. Team up with a mystifying creature, Midna, and transform into a divine wolf. In The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, you'll join Link and Midna on a thrilling adventure across Hyrule where you'll meet an engaging cast of characters, explore confusing dungeons and survive puzzling traps. Get ready for an exciting and legendary Zelda adventure.
Good time waster...Game is great...Great exercise...This game is perfect for family night, game night, or just to play alone....This is a good game for when you get friends together for a social evening....Very exciting to try and play games that you may never have tried before.

They love it....Great game!...Great game for young active kids....If you like fast moving racing games mixed in with a little bit of action then its possible that you would find this to be one of the best games you ever played, but I think it takes a specific taste in games to enjoy a game like this enough to purchase it....This game was bought for my twin grandsons and I was able to get it at Best Buy for such a great price!...My 6yr old is in love with Sonic so when I saw this I knew I had to get it for him.
Synopsis Who's blue with spiky hair and has an insatiable appetite for speed? It's Sonic the Hedgehog, and he's returning swiftly in a new adventure for your Nintendo Wii. Sonic's first solo mission in more than a decade takes him through the pages of the classic tale

Mimic Sonic's unending energy and mind-bending movements, as well as performing your own dizzying motions, against vibrant Persian backdrops with your Wii Remote. Thrust the hurried hedgehog forward by rotating your Remote, and then tilt it to avoid obstacles or pull off oh-so-cool combo moves with the flick of your wrist. Likewise, swing the Remote to knock down enemies and advance with nothing standing in your way. With moves like yours, you'll really work up a sweat. Now, family and friends can get in on the fun in more than 30 mini party games that will get everyone on their feet to bring the house down.
Love it...Loved it...Maintaining the nostalgia of playing classic Nintendo characters such as Mario, and samus while combining the freshness of using new characters to the series such as little mike and mega man making this a new and refreshing take on the classic smash formula....It's super easy to pick up and play since you only have 4 buttons and four directions to worry about, bot like picking up street fighter and having to learn a thousand different button combinations to be very good at it....I been a customer for quite sometime now and so far I been totally overwhelmed with all the products I have purchased in the store and on line....Been to a few Best Buys in town but by far the one on Queens Blvd is best.

Best ever...Must buy...The tools provided in this game allow the user to create a level layout, choose a Mario game to frame it in (Mario Bros, Super Mario World, Mario 3, and New Super Mario), then pick enemies and placement, power ups, music, pipes and then publish it to be played by others....There are only so many words that can describe the immense potential in Super Mario Maker: outstanding, groundbreaking, and sentimental (and this just scratches the surface.) Mario Maker not only allows you to create your own levels from FOUR different Mario Games (Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, and New Super Mario Bros.,) but it also lets you share and play an endless supply of levels created by the community itself....If you grew up playing Super Mario and spent countless hours imagining your own worlds to play through or how much different the game would be if someone had made a level just to troll the player, then fear not for Super Mario Maker has finally arrived.
You've searched castle after castle for the princess, slid through too-many-to-count number of pipes, ridden Yoshi on thrilling adventures and tossed fireballs, flown, stood still like a statue and swam underwater. You've completed every level, found every warp world, battled with Bowser every time. You know the iconic levels so well, you can complete them with your eyes closed. Well, not any more.
Get ready for the most creative, exciting and challenging Super Mario game to date with Super Mario Maker. Design, create and play your own levels on your Wii U GamePad, and then explore those levels created by Nintendo and players from around the world. Use your GamePad's touch screen to add enemies, blocks, pipes and more. Combine enemies, traps and items into unexpected twists to break conventions and add unique challenges. Choose from four distinct themes, such as Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros. U, each with unique art styles and features. Drop in the Mystery Mushroom item to transform into different characters at random, and unlock additional characters by completing 100 Mario Challenge mode or tapping in compatible amiibo figures. Are you ready to speed through courses in record fashion, battle Piranha Plant-shooting cannons, boost your abilities with powerup-tossing Lakitus and take on the Hammer Bros. riding on Bowser while bouncing on trampolines? Better yet, do all that, and then show off your own ideas.
For the avid dancer in the family...I like the dance games becaus the whole family and friends can play them and enjoy the music....Good for exercise...This is for my daughter who loves to dance...so...win-win!...The music is not bad though....The words in the songs are appropriate for all ages.

so fun...Love it...While the game is rather nostalgia driven, Star Fox Zero is still a unique game that differs from its predecessors in many ways, and I personally found SFZ to be a more enjoyable experience than Star Fox 64 (a game I have played and enjoyed since childhood.) Overall, Star Fox Zero has a solid and unique control scheme, great boss battles, and a wide variety of mission types....Story line was not so bad, more of a reboot, but still pretty good, the one things I really really was disappointed about was the controllers and the Co-op mode, they really screw that up personally....To me I think Starfox is the weakest in the Nintendo franchise I enjoyed Metriod, Super Mario and Legend of Zelda but something about Starfox I tried to get into but I just seem not to love it but I think this is game is alright.
Be the hero in Star Fox Zero, the continuation of the legendary Star Fox series. Blast through the enemy forces that are threatening the Lylat system so that you can enjoy peace once more. A variety of tools are at your disposal including the Arwing jet and the Landmaster tank in Star Fox Zero.
Perfect for rainy days!!...Great for preschoolers...Good exercises for young children...Great that have alternative control selection between Wii Fit board and Wii Controller....The game is great for kids, The graphics and story lines are focused so that kids can easily understand the directions and the activities....They love having their own Wii Fit game with their favorite characters!

very nice...Very fun...Great for entertainment and exercise!...She just did not think it was fantastic or that there was anything new and improved about the game....I was pleasantly surprised to see that they covered all age groups and didnt go with too young of a set lists and too many outdated songs....My girls just received this for Christmas, so we have not played it yet, but we do have all the previous Just Dance games, and we love them.

5 stars...Just Fun...The balance of using the paint to not only go on offense but also for defense (by hiding, and to regain health and "ammo") works brilliantly, and since you can also swim through the paint, you can create pathways of sorts on walls and such and use it to flank your opponents or make yourself creative hiding spots in nooks and crannies around the stages....Awesome game, its a shooter in the way that killing or "Splatting" other players benefits your team, but more fun and approachable in the way that you can help your team arrive at victory without ever even encountering another player if you do not wish to....The pricetag is an embarrassing hit below the belt because in my humble opinion, if Nintendo wants to sell more games out of an almost empty library they may want to sell their exclusives on the cheap instead of $60 like most 2nd party titles tend to maintain.
You take the lead as your team approaches a clean new area, free of color and chaos. With a smirk, you take it all in — you'll soon change that. Two teammates begin spraying down walls, floors, ceilings and every other imaginable surface with ink, claiming this territory as your own with a vivid wash of your colors. You and another fighter scan the area for enemies. The opposition never sees you as you sneak up and douse them in an ink bath they'll never forget. This turf is all yours — it's time to move on and paint the whole world in your team's colors.
Get messy with Splatoon, a fun-filled third-person action shooter that challenges you to cover levels, and enemies, with a brilliant spray of colorful ink. Take on the role of an Inkling, a squid-like fighter ready to cover yourself and everything around you with your team's hues. Cover the terrain around you in ink to claim it, and spray walls to gain access to hard-to-reach areas. Earn high-powered super weapons by soaking your turf in ink, so you can cover your enemies in color or spray more territory. Put on your thinking cap to dream up devastating strategies, but don't forget to keep an eye on your turf — too much attention on the other team may lead to a redecoration of your own territory. Easily refill your tank or hide from enemies with just a touch of a button, or transform into a squid and dive into ink for a blazing-fast speed boost. Attack your own way with a multitude of control options thanks to the Wii U GamePad controller, including gyroscopic controls that let you look around, aim and more with precision. Band together with three friends and get online to take on other teams in four-on-four matches that will have you perched on the edge of your seat. A color-soaked battle awaits — are you ready to claim your turf?
Have fun...So funny....While an interesting idea in concept, the attack triangle (counters beat attacks, grabs beat counters, and attacks beat grabs) sometimes devolves the game more into RPS than I am comfortable with, especially when you or your opponent is knocked down....There are move combos to master, a dojo in which to practice mastering moves with the Pokemon of your choice, and a tournament mode in which you compete with characters generated by the game to ascend to the highest rank of fighter in the game world....Personally, I have never been a fan of the franchise, but with fighting games being one of my favorite genres, not to mention that the game was developed by Namco's Team Tekken, I thought I'd give it a shot.
You've collected them all, battled against countless monsters and immersed yourself in the rich storylines throughout the franchise. Now, it's time to pit your favorite Pokémon characters against each other in epic, action-packed combat in Pokkén Tournament. Created in collaboration with The Pokémon Company and Bandai Namco Entertainment, Pokkén Tournament lets you jump into thrilling battles in a variety of arenas on your Nintendo Wii U. Are you ready to duke it out with your favorite Pokémon characters?
Best Game ever...BEST GAME...Lots of fun and exercise...She loves it, my 3 year old daughter loves it even all of our friends went out looking for the game after we played it....Makes for good clean fun when the snow is piling up and your teenager or any kids for that matter are gettin bored....We loved the game the whole family did.I like it because my son is actually moving around instead of just sitting playing a game.We all challenged each other.Gotta come out with another one.
