Great !...Must buy...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....If you tough that brawl was a letdown give yourself another chance and play this game, they totally outdid themselves, a lot of trophies, collectibles and the great gameplay youll come to expect from Smash, and did I need to say 8 player battles!!!

Just Fun...Fun FPS...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....So you get the benefits of a first person shooter game with the added benefit of shooting paint, covering surfaces with paint, and turning into a squid to stealthily hide, quickly move through and even up vertical surfaces, and recharge your gun/special weapon.
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?
Not bad....So fun!...Yet as the release got closer, and reviews came out, I also got more excited, and it was warranted: it's a classic Mario platformer in so many ways, but with the twist that you are playing levels you either construct yourself or find from the millions that other gamers have created to amuse or torture you....When you first load up Super Mario Maker, there's just a basic set of course elements to work with; spending five minutes or so creating a course queues the next set of elements to unlock, and they are "delivered" either the next day that you play, or (if you spend long enough working on a course with the available elements) while you are building.
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.
Good Set...Good item...The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD is a very nice update to the classic Legend of Zelda game The encounter takes place inside the Goron Mines, and you have to make smart use of arrows and the heft of Link's metal boots to trip the creature up and put him away....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 expansive kingdom of Hyrule is a peaceful one, yet a mysterious dark force has invaded, shrouded in twilight.

Team up with a mystifying creature, Midna, and transform into a divine wolf. In The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, you'll join Link and Midna on a thrilling adventure across Hyrule where you'll meet an engaging cast of characters, explore confusing dungeons and survive puzzling traps. Get ready for an exciting and legendary Zelda adventure.
The best...Good game...The only thing I would like to see out of this game in the future is more pokemon choices - the creators did well to balance types and favorites, but being able to fight with more pokemon would be amazing!...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?
I love it...Love it...As a long, longtime Zelda fan (the first came out around the time I was born and I have grown up with the series, always playing each new major installment when they are new) I would like to think I am pretty qualified to give some pretty solid opinions on this series of games....Pros: - Gameplay is rock solid, as expected from a Nintendo game - NPC reactions are true to life and give an added element of immersion - The physics-based system is unlike anything I have ever experienced before - Unlimited ways to solve puzzles and defeat enemies - The music is wonderful, I will be picking up the soundtrack for sure - Graphics are definitely good enough.
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.
Very good...Love it...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...do other stuff -Censorship: Unnecessary fan service has been taken out of the American release.Some will complain about the "abuse" of censorship and that our American eyes can handle what little censorship was put it, but I applaud Nintendo's decision to edit it.
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?
Great fun...Love this...A reincarnation of one of the best 2d mario games ever made, Super Mario World, with a 2.5d perspective; 4-player coop with each character having different abilities likened to Super Mario Bros 2; extremely fun, new power-ups: cat suit (climb and scratch), cherry (makes duplicates of characters), cannon box (become cannon), ice skate(skate in giant ice skate); 4-player cooperate and control a giant yoshi-Plessie; creative and challenging levels....Not too different from other 3d Mario games, but this is a must have for the Wii U. Excellent 3d platforming, and typical Nintendo levels of polish.
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....lots fun...The one point of controversy is the battle mechanic, since it retains the turn-based style of past titles but swaps in limited cards, achieved through an in-game shop or discovery in the environment (just to be clear, the shop uses in-game currency - no microtransactions here)....Our 3 year old loves watching us play video games and stomp on bad guys, this one is a neat twist on the classics so it a little more engaging than the originals :)
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.
good deal...Good game...The platforming is challenging and enjoyable, the graphics are vibrant and beautiful, the music is simply great, all around a very fun game for any 2d platforming fans....The Nintendo Selects: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Wii U has amazing graphics and if you like Donkey Kong, this is the game for you.
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.

So cool!!...Best game...It brings back memories to Mario games its very fun to play with the whole family and friends will enjoy this game and you can even play the Mario lost levels....Mario All-Stars is pound for pound the BEST collection games ever, and this Wii version is the BEST collection of games on disc ever made in my opinion!
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.
Good game....It's fun....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.
kids love...Nice game...My kids already play minecraft on ipad, PC, XBOX One, so thought natural to also buy version on Wii U. I like the pre-built Mario world and the game pad integration is a nice feature....My family plays split-screen Minecraft together and we have really enjoyed having the Super Mario Mash-Up world to explore!

So fun!...Very good...i lvoed the first 2 games on the gamecube, and once I saw the 3rd installment brought to the nintendo classics collection, I knew I had to have it, and to continue the expanded story....Exploring in Pikmin 3 feels a bit better than in the previous games because of being able to split up into three teams, and keep an eye on them with the gamepad's screen.
Partner with Pikmin once again in the Wii U Pikmin 3 game. This sequel introduces five types of Pikmin, each with special abilities to help you solve puzzles and gather resources. Use multiplayer mode to challenge friends in the Wii U Pikmin 3 game, or share your victories on social media by using the built-in screen capture software.
5 stars....love it...Thus, by far I think that this is one of the best track lists in the series, and I have been purchasing most of the games in the series for years....The songs I recognize are good, but the dances are not as complicated and the rhythms are slower.
