Much Fun...Unfortunately the game did not come soon enough, this would have been the perfect launch title for the WiiU and likely would have helped the console sell better than it had, Regardless, the game is well worth picking up and is an overall enjoyable experience....Great game at a great price (Black Friday in July sale).
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.
5 stars...If you are expecting a groundbreaking new Starfox app for the Wii U, you might be disappointed, but if you are expecting a return to Starfox 64 with a gamepad twist, you will be smiling....Should be $10 by Black Friday.
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.
4 stars...Accessible and fun for players of all ages, the game's simple mechanics and easy single player mode will be loved by children, while the more complex skills and tactics in multiplayer should offer an engaging experience for those looking for a break from your standard military shooter....I would have never spent $60 on this game, but it is definitely worth the $35 Black Friday price.
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?
Must buy....This game captures all the cuteness and fun of a Yoshi game, but takes advantage of the advanced capabilities of the Wii U to create a stunning rendering of a Yoshi stuffed animal knitted by yarn....I bought this Nintendo Wii U game for $23.99 during Best Buys Black Friday special.
Weave together a wool platform that elevates you to amazing new heights. Sink deep below the visible world by knitting up a warp pipe. Unravel carefully woven threads to uncover mysterious secrets. Fend off enemies by tossing balls of yarn, and render them helpless with a little quick thinking and colorful string. In a world constructed of fuzzy fabrics, anything is possible as long as you create it.
Join Yoshi on an all-new adventure in Yoshi's Woolly World as you embark on a journey created by the developer of Kirby's Epic Yarn and the producer of Yoshi's Story and the popular Yoshi's Island series that transports you to a land woven together with felt, yarn, cloth and cotton. Interact with a customizable environment as you tangle, pull and stitch yarn to create woven wool platforms and warp pipes. Unravel hidden secrets and solve thrilling puzzles. Experience an eye-popping textile world rendered in arresting high-definition, and enjoy Yoshi's cuddly knitted cuteness. Battle enemies by hurling yarn balls, or use a snippet of colored string to muzzle a troublesome Piranha Plant. Team up with a friend, gobble them up and turn them into an egg, so you can launch them into high spots and deep, dark depths during two-player co-operative play. Are you ready to stitch together your own action-packed adventure?
Very fun....The only thing I would like to see out of this game in the future is more pokemon choices - the creators did well to balance types and favorites, but being able to fight with more pokemon would be amazing!
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?
Love It!...The only complaint I have is the same as in previous Mario Kart installments, the computer cheats too much when they are behind, nothing is worse than being on the 4th race of a Grand Prix and getting hit with a blue shell, lightning bolt and red shell back to back to back on the third lap....And bought it half the price on Black Friday.
Players, start your engines. It's time to once again get on the racing circuit and compete against characters from the Mushroom Kingdom that you know and love.

So buckle up, push the pedal to the floor and get ready to turn this classic racing experience upside down.
With new racing circuits, new gameplay features and a stunning new look, Mario Kart 8 certainly lives up to the legacy. The new anti-gravity feature will have you suddenly finding yourself racing on walls in a haunted mansion or upside-down over Princess Peach's castle — not to worry, the wheels on your kart will automatically rotate and shift into antigravity gear for an awesome racing element that allows mind-blowing new circuit designs. The previous games in the Mario Kart franchise introduced some amazing features, so they're back for more in Mario Kart 8. You can still see who's got what it takes in 12-player online competitive play. Hang gliders and motorbikes are back, as well as underwater racing and mid-air tricks, while Waluigi and Toadette rejoin the cast of characters. As the icing on the cake, the crisp, high-definition graphics and 60-frames-per-second frame rate of your Nintendo Wii U ensure a visually stunning and vibrant gameplay experience that you won't soon forget.
good buy...The same thing happened to The Wind Waker as well, which is now universally loved, and rightly so (As you can see by my review on that page, Wind Waker is my favorite entry in the Zelda series, which is my favorite game series of all time).
The expansive kingdom of Hyrule is a peaceful one, yet a mysterious dark force has invaded, shrouded in twilight.

Get ready for an exciting and legendary Zelda adventure.
Cool game....This game has amazing graphics, has a good campaign story, a great multiplayer experience and it contends to the zombie killing players with extinction( which is aliens instead of zombies)....Great Black Friday buy.
Outnumbered and outgunned, but not outmatched.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is an extraordinary step forward for one of the largest entertainment franchises of all-time. This new chapter in the Call of Duty franchise features a new dynamic where players are on the side of a crippled nation fighting not for freedom, or liberty, but simply to survive.
Fueling this all-new Call of Duty experience, the franchise's new next-gen engine delivers stunning levels of immersion and performance, all while maintaining the speed and fluidity of 60 frames-per-second across all platforms.
great ....If you are a fan of the series, you will not be disappointed, but if you have been a fan since you were a kid, as an adult now, I find it hard to fully enjoy it because there is not enough time in the day with the new responsibilities of becoming an adult....$20 on black Friday
Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a former street gangster, now looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.
Grand Theft Auto V is the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar Games has yet created and takes full advantage of every ounce of processing power available in the current generation of consoles. In order to provide the best possible experience for such a massive and detailed world, the game will have installation requirements on the PlayStation 3 system. Grand Theft Auto V ships on one disc and will install content as soon as you insert the game. The install is roughly 8GB, and players will be able to play as soon as the install is complete.
