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.

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.

Very nice...Sweet game...I really like how the game has almost the same controls as X-BOX so I learned how to play X-BOX minecraft from it....Had it for PS3 but wanted to buy it for the Wii U just to play with my gf and test out the Super Mario skins....Kids love this game and I love that there is a sense of engineering to it, but at the same time fun is had by all.

Hidden Gem...Good game!...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 !...I love the screen and the clear picture and I trust this product, the price is great for the quality and I would recommend this tv to anyone !!!...The Pikmin series has always been one of those deep cut titles, one that people who love video games beyond Mario and COD style shooters enjoy and this installment does not disappoint.

Good Game...Nice RPG....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...Many things about this game that is subpar compared to the Original on Wii...the story is nowhere near as good...your character never speaks and is Silent throughout the game...the Manodo is ten times better than anything you get in this game...however the game is good...the original was masterpiece...The plot twists are great and really remind you that you are playing a Xenoblade game, but most of the story until you reach them is quite shallow hammering in the idea that humanity is just trying to survive on a new and seemingly dangerous planet.
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 Game!...Love it...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 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....It is very easy to learn and the more you play the game, you will learn which cards are effective on which enemies and which ones are not.
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.
Co-op fun...Family fun...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....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...Have not played it yet as I have so many games on my list to play but my nephew got to play it last time he came to visit and loved it for hours.

good buy...cool game...With this game and Wind Waker HD, you have got two of the best games for the Gamecube running amazingly, and looking beautiful, on the Wii U. And getting the version with the Wolf Link Amiibo just means extra Game Content!...One of my personal favorite Zelda titles thanks to its dark tone and unique atmosphere, Twilight Princess makes it Wii U debut with an HD port of the game that brings everything you loved about the GameCube and Wii original to the modern generation....The grass is greener, higher resolution, revamped textures, detailed changes in polygonal models/objects, and addition of lighting effects which makes the world look less of a drab and pops out more than the original Hero mode: enemies do twice the damage (4x if you use Ganondorf amiibo) In terms of link's hand placement: Gamecube version on Normal (left-handed), mirrored wii version on hero mode Loading times are a lot faster, maybe 1-2 secs faster for every screen transition.

Great buy...Good time...If your kid or you love pokemon and enjoys playing the games this is a pretty cool game you would enjoy it, if you ever played the pokemon stadium game on Nintendo 64 this is sort of the same thing but the newer version of it has a different style to.it which makes it a very cool game in my opinion....In 2015 when this game was first announced I was excited to hear about a Pokemon fighting game, but I honestly had pretty low expectations, it appeared as if it would be something similar to J-All stars (Button pressing with now skill required) basically just a visually fun fighter for beginners... but I was wrong: Its a unique battle engine with long ranged and close combat style fights and also incorporates the 3 C's cancels, counters, and combo options....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.
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?
it's ok...5 stars...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....The visuals, music, and voice acting are all delightful, but the use of motion controls and the Wii U Gamepad's screen (which are required, the game cannot be played without them) often become irritating to use and tear away from everything this game has to offer....Trying to steer with the left joist stick, add barrel rolls or some other advanced maneuver with the right joystick, all the while trying to aim with the game pad made it hard to figure out where to actually look, the TV or the Gamepad.
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.
Good fun...Great fun...I was really excited when we purchsed this game but sadly after 45 minutes of playing, I was disspaointed and felt like the game was very repetitive and not as entertaining as I thought it will be....Not that many characters in this one or mini games (as opposed to power tennis) but it still remains fresh and fun with friends or family....I have always enjoyed the Mario themed games on the Wii u. I grew up on these type of games and want my son to have memories of them too.

Good DK...Best game...Getting through a level is not always super-hard, but doing it while accomplishing all the side-challenges will really test your skill!...I honestly think that this game has some of the best level design I have ever seen in a 2D platromer, and being able to play as 4 different Kong's this time around adds an extra layer of depth to the gameplay....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.
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.
Good game...Not bad....What would have made this game even better, however, is what is not included: namely: slopes, more enemies, taller levels, different colored pipes, more themes, left-scrolling levels, checkpoints, secret exits and keys... But again, this is an amazing game....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....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.

Better yet, do all that, and then show off your own ideas.
Love this...Good game...It was much better in my opinion; it's competitive dancing mode Does not require a camera, plus, you are dancing against a ton of players....Great game, Kids have had older versions and love it, great entertainment and good excercise at the same time...I accidentally forgot to bring my controllers home over the break but thank GOD that we could use our smart phones.

5 Stars!...So fun!...What can I say about splatoon besides it is incredibly addictive, offers so much strategy and depth that would not be expected from a new ip so quickly, and an overall level of enjoyment that has been forgotten with the new age of fancy graphics and higher tech games....This game is great and very addictive with its huge customization options and great gameplay style the only downside begin that there are only two maps per match type available per day and the fact that there is no way to change your layout without leaving the lobby....Multiplayer, on the other hand, is team-based 4v4 competition (at least so far, since Nintendo will be adding more modes, maps, and weapons for free through the end of August!) with the twist being that your goal is not to defeat the opposing team members the most, but to cover as much of the map with your team's color of ink!
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?
