Worth $20...Very fun...This is a nice game to pick up and play for a bit when you only have a bit of time to spare, as levels do not take more than 10 minutes to complete and cut scenes are nearly absent....This may not be the Super Mario Galaxy gamers were looking for, but as an extension to Super Mario 3D Land, it does have some surprises up its sleeves that truly make it stand out as a must have for the Nintendo Wii U.
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.
Good game....Super fun...Sticker Star was not a perfect game - it was not terrible, but some of the exploration elements were far too vague and unrealistic in their explanations, requiring constant visits to IGN to figure out what to do....The graphics and aesthetics should appeal to anyone who loves Yoshi's Woolly World and Kirby and the rainbow Curse as this game takes the paper theme to a whole new level.
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.
a classic...Very fun...It was fantastic, my legs fell asleep many times while I lost track of time, and forgot where I was or what I was doing while playing it....I know nothing of tennis but thus game is fun and if fun it what you are looking for then fun you will be having with Mario Tennis.

Good game...Love it!...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....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.
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.

Very fun...Good fun...Purchasing a Wii U has rekindled my love for Mario and side-scrollers, so I picked this up since it offered two games in one package....I love the game, I have been looking for it for a while now and was lucky enough to find it on accident while shipping for something else.
Revisit the Mushroom Kingdom in all its side-scrolling glory in New Super Mario Bros. U.

Not bad...Must buy...This game has an insane amount of content, the animation and details for each character is amazing, the gameplay is easy to pick up but hard to master, the game runs at 1080p and 60 Fps and it looks just gorgeous....In a culture often devoted to shock, gore, and vulgarity, Smash Bros delights in its ability to avoid all of these cynical tropes to provide gamers with a satisfying, delightful, even joyous mountain of chaotic gameplay.

Pure Fun...It's ok...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....As a red-blooded American guy that is been playing video games since 8bit NES and has since gone through every Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft console (and Sega Saturn and Dreamcast), I am wowed with what Nintendo can still do despite having much less powerful hardware.
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?
So good...Loved it...I would also note the Wii U has no Wii U features at all aside from allowing you to play off-tv on the GamePad... beyond that the GamePad is not used for anything else and is honestly annoying to use when playing on TV because the screen remains lit up with no use....As a long standing fan of The Legend of Zelda since the days of the original Nintendo, and having a strong affinity toward the Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 64, I would say that this iteration has been too heavily influenced by the moving tide of modern video gamers.
Play as your favorite hero with The Legend of Zelda™ video game for the Wii U. Fans of the old NES game can revisit the original Legend of Zelda™ to gather the eight pieces of the Triforce once again. Set out on original quests as Link in The Legend of Zelda™ video game.
worth it...Not bad...Online play is the most dynamic mode of play, but it can be intensely frustrating if you are not comfortable with fighting games or if you have not reached a decent proficiency with a Pokemon's move set....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?
Love it!...Fun Coop...I love the style of the game, its fun and been awhile since I played star fox its just these controls are horrible I mean its bad, enjoy spending alot of time figuring out how to use the camera....A simple and fun game that is hampered by a less than optimal control scheme - if you can get past it, not a bad game, but very odd how nintendo throws these out every so often when control is a hall mark of that company (think Kid Icarus uprising , wonderful 101)
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.
Love it!...Great RPG...One of the best Japanese role-playing games of the generation and arguably the best open world environment of the year" and "deserves to be spoken of in the same breath as The Witcher 3 and Fallout 4" but criticized "a disappointing story and some arcane systems...I do not know how many great games the Wii U has left (other than Zelda, which is being made, in part, by the studio that made this game, so...that might be enough to sell you), but Xenoblade Chronicles X is one of 'em and great for anyone looking for a long (LONG), epic experience.
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.

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 deal...kids love...Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze is another good addition to the DK series from Retro Studios who have continued good games since Rareware created the awesome DK trilogy for the SNES....Although not quite as fun as the donkey Kong country that I remember for the Nintendo 64 this is still a must have for anyone owning the wii u

Great game...of fun!!...I do not have that much experience with Minecraft but the framerate is very stable and smooth and the game loads very fast....I enjoy seeing the children enter acting , imitation and reacting to the games that they have purchased at Best Buy.

Good Game...Gaming Fun...Definitely a good game for any Nintendo fan, it is great for kids too, and best of all it is super cheap, would make a great last minute gift for any gamer !...a little tricky with some of the puzzles, and the boss fights can be outright unfair sometimes, but the charm and laid back feel to the game certainly is a great game to unwind to.

VERY HAPPY...good game...The art style is classic, and the improvements to the gameplay and lighting system make for a more enjoyable experience from the GameCube version....Overall the game is the same as the game cube version but with the obvious HD remake and some game improvements; especially when sailing those long distances, now they feel like shorter and navigating over the see is a less painful experience :)
