Love It!...I love the new Rainbow stage....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. 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.
Good Fun...Play cooperatively or bounce them off the stage....Building on the mechanics introduced in the incredible 3DS game Super Mario 3D Land, it takes the series core platforming design to wonderful places.
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 buy...the games are super mario bros., super mario bros 2, super mario bros. the lost levels, and super mario bros. 3....Even so, these games are still a blast and this seems to be the only official way Nintendo will let you get the improved SMB3.
Crush Goombas and squash Koopas when you play as everyone’s favorite plumber with Super Mario All Stars for the Wii. This set includes the original Super Mario Bros., The Lost Levels and Super Mario Bros. 2 and 3. Your favorite worlds, heroes and villains await you in Super Mario All Stars for the Wii.
Kids loved it...The level design is great....Great game, harder than I expected it would be from the one I played when I was a kid
Help the monkey king of Nintendo games find his missing bananas in the Donkey Kong Country Returns Wii game. Use the character’s new skills (Ground Pound and Barrel Roll) via the Wii remote or nunchuk to blast through blocks and crush enemies. Cooperative game mode in the Donkey Kong Country Returns Wii game lets you partner with friends to complete levels.
4 stars...you dont get to paint your opponents stage....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 finally decided to give in and give it a try because of a pretty large Black Friday discount, and I am glad I did.
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?
Much Fun...I get to make stages I really like...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....I bought this game at a promotional early black friday price.
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.
5 stars...Playing through the campaign, collecting all the medals, and going for high scores are still the crux of the game, something SFZ makes easier to accomplish by allowing you to replay a stage upon completion without penalty, as laser upgrades and bombs no longer carry over from stage to stage....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....Picked this up during Best Buy's Black Friday in July sale, and at that price point (especially with Guard included) it was well worth it.
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.
Great, Fun Game...It was fun because we could make a person and it also had fun levels....My mom had this game first and my 6 year old daughter loved playing it at her house.

Must buy....I really like collecting a yoshi from each stage and it's kind of challenging to get a star for the stages so the levels have replay ability....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 loved the Black Friday deal they had for this.
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.
