Cool Game...Fun fun....It's a fun game that when you make a stage it feels incredible....It's also a great game to use to introduce a child to Mario - you can create simple fun levels to help them get the hang of all the basics without any challenging bad guys to deal with and then create more challenging levels for them to try as they get better.
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.
Get ready for the most creative, exciting and challenging Super Mario game to date with Super Mario Maker. Design, create and play your own levels on your Wii U GamePad, and then explore those levels created by Nintendo and players from around the world. Use your GamePad's touch screen to add enemies, blocks, pipes and more. Combine enemies, traps and items into unexpected twists to break conventions and add unique challenges. Choose from four distinct themes, such as Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros. U, each with unique art styles and features. Drop in the Mystery Mushroom item to transform into different characters at random, and unlock additional characters by completing 100 Mario Challenge mode or tapping in compatible amiibo figures. Are you ready to speed through courses in record fashion, battle Piranha Plant-shooting cannons, boost your abilities with powerup-tossing Lakitus and take on the Hammer Bros. riding on Bowser while bouncing on trampolines? Better yet, do all that, and then show off your own ideas.
Love it....N64 fan...Great variety of stages....PROS for Digital Download: Don't need to go to the store No need to worry about scratching the disc (kids) Don't need to get up to change games When I switch consoles my digital content will still be there CONS No paper manuals No box with artwork Cannot play on another system unless you tell nintendo you want to activate your account on another Wii Friends cannot borrow the game (I would not let my friends borrow this game so not an issue for me) Cannot resale a digital copy

So cool....Good fun...A great selection of fighters to choose from and lots of stages to do battles in and best of all...it's alll on the go!!!...Even for new players, the controls are much easier to learn that way - the giant round button in the middle is for your main attacks, the smaller round button next to it's for your special attacks and the kidney shaped buttons above are for jumps.

Love it....It's ok...There's also a variety of stages as well....A great premise and executed nicely, Splatoon is a must own for your Wii U. Seeing as the game system itself has struggled to have a library of games thus far and seeing as Nintendo keeps recycling games from past successes, this one's a breath of fresh air (sorta).
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?
The best...Good Game...super mario trilogy and lost levels are alll here on the wii in 16 bit glory!!...The Super Mario All-Stars pack is a good addition to your Wii U library if you want a compilation of Mario Bros games at your fingertips without digging or plugging up the antique hardware.

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.
good game...A Classic...Play cooperatively or bounce them off the stage....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 don't take more than 10 minutes to complete and cut scenes are nearly absent.

Best kirby...Loves it....Lots of fun and challenging stages....It looks fairly similar to classic Kirby games except now you can also pilot big mech suits that give Kirby the ability to traverse to different areas and often a little extra firepower.
See Kirby like never before in Kirby: Planet Robobot. This cute little pink puffball suddenly goes mecha when he finds mysterious armor that'll help him defeat ruthless invaders from destroying his home world. Smash through virtually anything that gets in his way, shape-shift and save the world in Kirby: Planet Robobot.
Great buy...It's fun!...The game mechanics are based on a team of three working together, either three via multiplayer or solo with two dopplegangers that you also control (but only one of the three Links at a time.) In addition to his sword, each of the Links can pick up one of the classic Zelda series items, such as bombs, boomerang, hookshot, and gust jar, but which items are available depends on the stage....I've had minor issues with lag and players dropping (for whatever reason), and while communication is limited to a preset list of commands, the system Nintendo put in place works well enough with the mechanics of the game to not make it a hindrance when playing with strangers.
Link is back with an all-new quest in The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes. Join forces with two friends and head out on a thrilling new adventure. You'll have to communicate and work together to solve fun puzzles, battle bosses and fend off enemies.

Collect loot to create wearable outfits with different abilities and boosts, so you can explore dangerous dungeons, each with four main areas. Use a set of emoticons to communicate with your two teammates. Grab your friends and your Nintendo 3DS, it's time for a legendary adventure.
good bundle...Great game....PROS -cute design -entertaining gameplay -collectibles adds replay value CONS -controls feel stiff -poor vehicle controls -awkward stage select...The game is fun for kids, my son loves it, and even though the Amiibo isn't among the best looking that Nintendo has made, it looks about as good as you could expect a Chibo Robo Amiibo to look.

Ricochet the plug and cord off of walls to solve complex puzzles. Get plugged in to this exciting adventure.
Good port...Must BUY!...The pre-made stages are fun....My friend says that the Wii U version is better due to it having more content to build stages, which is never an abominable factor to have for a game.
Build and play in your own adventure world with Super Mario Maker for the Nintendo 3DS. Design challenging courses and share them via StreetPass or local wireless for other players to enjoy. Super Mario Maker has 100 built-in courses and lets you access more custom levels on Course World for never-ending fun and challenges.
Best game...Must buy...I like the new stages and the Music!!...Mario Kart has always been one of the most entertaining series of games from Nintendo, and with the addition of the glider in 7 they added a feature that makes the game that much more fun, without being too similar.
It's time to prepare your strategy and get your kart ready to race across the dusty desert course. The competition with be tough, but you've equipped your kart with giant tires so you can expertly careen through the off-road track. Racing takes strategy, customization and of course, skill and you have everything it takes to win the race and become a champion of Mushroom Kingdom.
The race is on and the excitement of Mario Kart is back and now in stunning 3D on your Nintendo 3DS with Mario Kart 7.

Compete with up to eight racers for fierce competition with your friends or other players around the world. The race is on.
So fun!...Neat Game...Lots of great stages & fun characters!...The only thing I would say is don't purchase this for children under 7 because they can't use the 3D capabilities of the system and this game would be difficult to play without the 3D turned on.
Join Mario in a new, eye-popping adventure with stunning 3D visuals. Jump, dash and hover your way through fully rendered 3D environments. Watch out for Goombas with tails and ink-spitting Piranha Plants along the way. With awesome 3D graphics and new and exciting features, Mario is more super than ever.

Watch out for all-new enemies, including Goombas with tails and ink-spitting Piranha plants.
Easy game...Love it!...A lot of secret stages and unlockables too....My son likes this game, Mario is a classic but once you beat the game it doesn't have much to do afterwards and he completes his games pretty quickly for a 10 year old.
Dive right back into the Mushroom Kingdom for another classic gameplay experience with everyone's favorite characters,
Mario and Luigi. Of course, Princess Peach has been kidnapped yet again by the malevolent Bowser, but the
bros. have a new and gilded objective to complete: collect as many gold coins as humanly possible. Mushroom Kingdom glows with the light of mountains, caverns and even characters made of gold, and Mario will not rest until Peach is safe and the gold is his.
You can still count on the action-packed fun that the Super Mario bros. franchise always brings to the table, but this time, with added golden opportunities like turning enemies into golden versions of themselves and a gold flower that gives Mario the ability to turn almost anything in his path into gold. This game keeps a running tally of every gold coin you've collected across all the levels so you can monitor your progress. Team up with a friend who can play as Luigi in the new two-player mode that allows you to use wireless Internet to tackle the adventure. Play in Coin Rush mode to see how many coins you can collect across three levels, and then challenge your friends to beat your record with StreetPass. No matter how you play, you'll soon be catching gold coin fever and the only cure is to grab your 3DS and play more New Super Mario Bros. 2.
Very fun!...It is fun....Pros: -Minigames are fun, and theres a lot of them -5 difficulty settings -Lots of different modes, all playable with up to 3 other friends with 3DS's (not more than 1 cartridge needed) -Unlockables, including Diddy Kong, stages, and modes....He also plays this one more than Mario Party on the Wii U. Personally, from watching him play all the Mario Parties, the flow of the game is better and the graphics are slightly better (even though I wouldn't say Nintendo games are meant to be the most visually wow'ing).
Think fast and have a blast with a variety of ways to party with Mario™, Toad™, and more, on-the-go or on the couch! It's always your turn as you and up to three* friends roll the dice, roam the board, and recruit fan-favorite allies. The bigger your party, the faster you'll earn stars and coins in frantic minigames. It's instant fun for everyone!
Great game...Good but......Not necessarily based on skill, but based on memorizing stages....The collection is a faithful re-release of all the Mega Man games with a nice addition of a music player for those that are a big fan of the music.
