very fun...Cool Game...Funs quickly over....Nintendo and Bandai Namco have made a brilliant fighting game that handles amazingly and runs great on the Wii U. It's nowhere near as beautiful as a "Street Fighter V" for example, but it is a game that 10 years from now people will look back on as a legendary Wii U title....Transitioning between a "3D free-running projectile throwing competition", and a "2D close-combat combo fest" on the fly may take some time to get used to, but with a little practice, you can be the very best, like no one ever was....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?
Super fun...Love it!!...Fun game, great for Nintendo fans...It was definitely better than Sticker Star, but it is hard to absolutely love the game when I know how good the first two Paper Mario games were....The game gives you good hints about what you need to beat bosses, but it was a little disappointing to find out I could not use alternative ways to beat them to make things a little harder....It focuses less on the true rpg aspects and more on the action/collecting side of it, but no as much as sticker star (which is fine by me).
Relax with Wii U's version of the Paper Mario: Color Splash game. Everyone's favorite Italian plumber is sent to Prism Island, which has been drained of its color. Mario brings justice to Prism Island in Paper Mario: Color Splash, and he uses the Paint Hammer to restore life as well as color.
Good game...Love it!...JUST DANCE 2017 WONDERFUL AND FUN...She enjoyed dancing to the new songs and I liked listening to some of the more"seasoned" songs....My daughter has all the Just Dance videos or games or whatever you want to call them and she just loves them all....This is an excellent video game for my nephew who enjoys it a lot and has those of previous years.

Very fun....Good RPG....Is so much fun!...I gave it a 10 because it does some things so spectacularly well (combat, world/environment, depth, fun), despite many smaller flaws (time text size, tedious submenus, lots of things not explained well, subpar close-up graphics, and a lot of reading)....This game is beautiful and make sure you read the manual in the game home menu, because you will need information that you normally do not know about, plus this game has mechs seriously you will enjoy this game...A HUGE world to explore, a deep combat system clearly influenced by MMOs, and gorgeous visuals, I would recommend this title for anyone who likes large, sprawling JRPGs but is looking for something a little different.
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?
Good stuff...Good game....Awesome songs and fun dance moves....I accidentally forgot to bring my controllers home over the break but thank GOD that we could use our smart phones....Great game, but be warned that there's a monthly subscription music fee required to get more than the few songs that are included....The Wii U game pad does an excellent job taking short video clips of your family dancing and having a good time, then let us you post them or save them.

I Like it...A hit....Fun and workout with my daughter...Their is a good variety of current songs are current song selections, graphics have improved, and the dances are coreographed well....This is the fourth or fifth game in the series we have purchased and it is just as enjoyable as the predecessors....One thing we do not like is the option play against other people and the camera version of watching us while we play the song.

Its fun....The best...The gameplay is still awesome and fun....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 is the same game, but it has significantly better textures (no polygons though) and gamepad support which lets you equip and unequip items without having to pause, and lets you check the map whenever you want.

Very fun...Love it!!...Fun Mario Game for WII U...My wife loves this game all she does is play it all the time which is great for me, I do play it myself it is fun and exciting game I recommend for all...I was a late adopter of the Wii U. Lately, I have been going back through the console's library of games and stumbled upon Super Mario 3D World....3 years later l finally had a chance to discover Super Mario 3D World, and to no one's surprise, it is still an excellent game that makes clever use of the Wii U's gamepad.
Save the Sprixies from Bowser in the Super Mario 3D World WII U game. Run, jump, and swim through beautifully rendered 3-D levels as one of four iconic characters while also mastering special skills that help you collect useful power-ups. Multiplayer mode in the Super Mario 3D World WII U game lets other people jump in at anytime during gameplay.
Darn Good...I love it...It looks fun!...The controls are a dividing point for a lot of players, but the game really excels in its use of the motion controls and fine tune aiming using the gamepad screen, to where switching back and forth becomes second nature and does not distract from events happening on the main screen....Part of me wished there was online multiplayer, or a coventional control scheme that would let you spend less time aiming with the Gamepad screen and more time looking at the HD visuals on the TV....This game sure does bring me back to the good ol days when I played n64...a lot of cool changes made and lots more to be excited about but darn if the controls on the gamepad arnt complex at times and lots goin on on the screen at one time on occasion!

Great fun...good deal...DonkeyKong games are always fun!...After trying it out I can honestly say this title brings me back to the days of the original Donkey King Country that launched on the Super Nintendo....The platforming is challenging and enjoyable, the graphics are vibrant and beautiful, the music is simply great, all around a very fun game for any 2d platforming fans....Just an amazing game overall: levels are creative and feel alive with so much going on in the surroundings, enemy designs are unique and have character(penguins), soundtrack is superb(David Wise), extensive cast of characters from the donkey kong family to choose from(Diddy, Dixie, Cranky), great art style, and most importantly is just a blast to play.
Stop the Snowmads from taking over in the Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Wii U game. Unlock hidden collectibles and take down powerful bosses as you swim, swing, and jump through six islands full of puzzles and enemies. Play alone, or collaborate with friends to overcome the multitude of challenges in this Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Wii U game.
So good....Good fun...Tons of fun...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....The only issues that I have with the game is the lack of unlockable characters and characters that were left out like Snake and Ice climbers but thanks to the constant update that add new characters and features the game is only going to get better....Pros: tons of features/graphics are beautiful/playing on the game pad is a total godsend/screen shots for miiverse/ the paint feature give some hilarious moments/the robust roster and future dlc will give this game more life as the future comes/tons of replay value.

Family Fun...good game...Always fun with Mario...It allows you to have something to work towards as you play through the various game modes and earn coins, drastically extending replay value....Game is great with one or even more fun playing as a team if one person uses the game pad to provide assistance to get to some items....I am so pleased that they reissued/reprinted this game, because if you tried to snatch it up just prior, you were getting it used or marked up.
Revisit the Mushroom Kingdom in all its side-scrolling glory in New Super Mario Bros. U. The revolutionary Wii U GamePad controller's capabilities make it possible for multiplayer action to be incorporated into this game in a way that few could have imagined. The Wii U GamePad even allows you to switch seamlessly from playing on the TV to playing on the GamePad so that your thrill doesn't need to be interrupted by someone else's need for the TV. Then, when Mario is nowhere to be found, it's up to Luigi to save the day — and boy is he up for the challenge. Featuring distinct Luigi physics, his unique slide is even more impressive and his high jump is even higher and longer to provide a gratifying gameplay experience in New Super Luigi U. Each replayable and satisfying course is full of new challenges and adventures, and there's no time to waste, since each course features a time limit of just 100 seconds. Switch it up and play as Nabbit, Luigi's new friend, who is invincible to enemies and obstacles. Level up your New Super Mario Bros. U experience with more than 80 brand-new courses in New Super Luigi U, which takes place in the same world, but doesn't require the game to play. Welcome back to the addicting, bizarre and amazing Super Mario Bros. franchise.
Much fun...4 stars...Online play is alot of fun!...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....It's a great FPS for kids (or busy adults without a lot of time to put into a game) -- the only reason I am giving it 4* instead of 5*, is due to (a) not being able to play multi-local player online (when doing online play only ONE person from a given console can be playing), and (b) being FORCED to use the Wii U gamepad as player 1....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.

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?
Best ever...So fun...Fun but feels off...Yet as the release got closer, and reviews came out, I also got more excited, and it was warranted: it's a classic Mario platformer in so many ways, but with the twist that you are playing levels you either construct yourself or find from the millions that other gamers have created to amuse or torture you....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....Bought this for my son, and he can not stop raving about it, mostly because of his love of creating things in Minecraft and LittleBigPlanet, but I actually played one of his levels and had a good time, playing a new level of old school Mario was exciting and nostalgic at the same time!
