it's ok...Its fun...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....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)...Between all the nostalgia from past games, the controls that you grow to love and appreciate, and the surplus of content after Story mode, this game is not only one of the best titles in the series and on the Wii U, but one of the best games on any platform today.
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...It's fun....It will only allow you to play "boost mode" where you can only assist the other player by creating blocks and slowing down enemies....Oh, and Mario is not playable, a second player can choose to be a near invincible Nabbit, and Luigi's controls are modified to so he has less traction but better jumping skills....really enjoy these games, New Super Mario Bros U more than the Luigi one (all of the levels are on a fast timer, so you have to run).
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.
Love it....best yet...It offers fun racing with some new twists in granting you the ability to customize your car, tweaking it is abilities in combination with the driver and wheels, and opening up new short cuts in the crazy course through the use of the glide and zero-g dynamics....Ok so here's a quick rundown of mario kart 8 it is fun for the entire family the graphics are nice audio is great and the hours you spend playing it will just fly by the online is better and more fun you and another family member or friend can play online with other people....My kids love it...great graphics, sound, and everything...game can be unfair, however, as with past MK games...nothing like being hit right before you cross the finish line and instead of finishing first, you finish 4th, 5th, 6th, or worse...overall a really fun game!!!
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. For the first time on the Nintendo Wii U console, you get to experience the racing action that has been a fan favorite for years, with a few added features to keep things interesting. 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.
CRAZY FUN...Love it!...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....Pokken is an interesting game, I feel like it could have been more polished and the roster could have been bigger, but its still pretty good, I hope they continue this series though because I feel like a Pokken 2 with more polish and content could be really good...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.
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?
nice game...Very good...The missions are fun and entertaining and provide you with the backdrop as to how you landed in Mira (planet) Game play - 9.5 - Action RPG but with special Art skills to trigger various attacks, armor, and etc....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 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?
SSB4 fun...a classic...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....Super Smash Brothers makes my top 5 list (games being released ) for Wii U in 2014) The Graphics are awesome, With over 40 characters to choose from and hundreds of moves to learn makes for a high replay ability....Unfortunately I was never into the Wii edition of Super Smash Bros Brawl, I do not know I just never liked it too much was wrong or really different to me, so I was really hesitant to buy the wii u version, but man am I glad I bought it, Playing Smash bros even as a senior in college with some of your friends is one of the funnest things ever.

Great fun...Nice game...The lack of a proper, old-school Mario Party mode, the unfairness of the Bowser mode, the lack of variety of boards, and the total lack of things to do leave this game actually fairly mediocre....Great game in a group, sucks that I had to go out and buy $40 wii remotes for my wii u that I have pro controllers for -_- otherwise the gameplay is fun and the graphics are up to the next gen standards....I have also known Mario Party with a good single/two player experience, where the boards and mini games have enough personality to where two people can competitively play and still have fun for hours, this one does not seem to follow.

A great...Great fun....Although not an instant classic like the first two installments, the dialogue in this title is hilarious and the overall pacing is wonderful....My wife likes all the Mario games so she enjoys this one as well but she said its not their best but still good and would recommend buying it...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.

Fun Zelda...Love it...For the record, I have loved Twilight Princess since I first played it roughly a decade ago, and my love for it has only grown each time I have played it since (which is about 5 or 6 times with a couple completionist runs in there, and I have played both the Gamecube and Wii versions)....It makes textures much more clear to see and the load times for the game has improved and just overall, Twilight Princess is a great game to have in your collection and would highly recommend everyone to obtain it if they love The Legend of Zelda series of games!!...Now with the HD graphics of the Wii U its even better and you do not have the clumsy motion controls of the original Wii game you can play it the way it should be played with a regular controller a must have if you have a Wii U

Great Buy...Great deal...I found the game to be fun, except for one incident when my younger brother landed on a space that forced him to forfeit his entire monetary savings into the sea....Me & my family enjoy taking turns watching the characters come to life walking on a village designed board where we get to see them interact with daily activities....The game has a lot of fun events that occur that any Animal Crossing fan will enjoy, but the balance leaves something to be desired when 1 player is far behind and then magically on the last 2 turns have amazing luck to come back and win.

Game fun...fun fun...Great shooter,without the grittiness of the darker games currently out.Very worthy of the nintendo title.Lot of weapons,and gear to customize with.Different gear gives you different stats so you can mix and match for different play styles.I'd recommend this to anyone who likes nintendo or a more light hearted shooter....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....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.
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.

Love it!...Must buy...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....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....This game would be really make a good game for kids because is fun is and entertaining because me as a parent was seen my kids play together and I also wanted to join them because I saw they where play the retro Mario game that I play as a child.
