    Gameplay is great, hey, it's Minecraft. We have a huge problem with this game, though. It keeps causing the Wii U to freeze. When my son adds too much stuff to his world it keeps freezing. While I understand that this is probably due to hardware limitations like RAM, it's still a problem that many people have and should have been fixed. Overall it's hard to recommend this game due to the freezing. I would say do your research and get it for a different system that doesn't have this problem.

    Eventually Minecraft will be available on your fridge and washing machine, but seriously why buy this one? One reason, Mario themed skins and textures built in. Yes it's more expensive, but you get the Mario stuff included so it's still $20 for the original game and $10+ worth of extras bundled in. I can't stand watching the kids play Minecraft because to me it's not a game, but now I hear Mario music as they are playing and it brings a smile to my face

    Can't manage inventory on the Gamepad screen, would have been a very nice addition to this version of the game. Could gave had PC like crafting and been nice to manage inventory while being able to move around at the same time and defend yourself, but no the developers didn't take advantage of the opportunity to make this version of Minecraft have an improvement over the other. Still, it's a good game and Minecraft on the Wii U!

    Presentation: Product was well packaged. Box was not broken or open. There weren't many at the stores. Gameplay: No problem when installing. Requires update after installation. Graphics are very good. Sound is good. No performance problem has been identified. My kids love it. Customer Service: As soon as I walked through the door, an employee approach me and help me to find the product quickly, which I did. Thank you.

    This is a cool concept for any new user of Minecraft. The Wii U is a great platform for this game because of its unique Game Pad. They also throw in a Mario mode which was what my daughter who has at least 3 other Minecraft versions wanted. She played the game for maybe 2 hours and has not picked it back up since. If this is your only way to play Minecraft GO FOR IT, but I have a feeling its going to become a coaster.

    Its minecraft. Kids usually just explore. That is what my son does on Minecraft. He wanted this version because of the Mario theme available. My kid does build some intricate structures and the wii-u pad seems to make the process a little faster. Surprised there have not been slashed prices for wii-u games now that the focus has moved to the switch console.

    Great Addition to the WiiU

    My son and even I are fan's of Minecraft (PC, XB360, XB1, Pocket edition). Although the WiiU Edition is not as Vast as other editions, this Edition is just as worthy. What is a plus and is not available in other Editions is the "Super Mario Mash Up Pack" that makes the game so worth it in my humble opinion. If you love Super Mario and Minecraft. You will love the worlds you can create.

    I bought this game for my daughter and she loves it, she would spend all day playing this if she could. This is a good port from other versions and it comes with a few dlc packs which makes it even better. It's constantly being updated so there is always improvement and the frame rate is smooth and runs like it would on ps4 or xbox one.

    I've bought this game so many times on Android, iOS, PC, and PS4 when my son asked for it on Wii U when his PS4's HDMI port broke I figured "Why not for every stinking platform in the house." It's not much different than the PS4 or PC version. If this would have come out a year sooner, I could probably have avoided buying the PS4 entirely.

    It's a great version of Minecraft which allows play on the gamepad alone with the TV off or with the TV on with only the Wii U Pro controller when the gamepad is charging. I don't have that much experience with Minecraft but the framerate is very stable and smooth and the game loads very fast. Also, the Super Mario exclusive is rather nice.

    I previously bought the Xbox version, and it rarely got played with. I liked the idea of multiplayer on WiiU, so I bought it to try it out. I was pleasantly surprised. The whole family really enjoys this version, especially with all of the additional content that comes with the game. The kids absolutely love being able to play together.

    My family plays split-screen Minecraft together and we've really enjoyed having the Super Mario Mash-Up world to explore! Had a couple of problems but I believe they have been fixed with updates from the developer. I am a little disappointed they don't use Wii U Gamepad's touchscreen for inventory management or something like that.

    My children love this game. Very similar to the version they have on their iPads but now with more items. A great purchase at a very reasonable price. The only issue I encountered is finding a way to make it 2 player. It says once you put it on the internet it will open up the players but I have yet to get it to work. Happy gaming!

    It's a bit pricey, considering other versions of the game have been out for a while at lower costs. However, the inclusion of the Mario-themed skins is very cool, and there are pre-build Mario worlds, too. My girls (even the one who otherwise rarely plays video games) both love the game and argue for control of the Wii U.

    I bought this for my kid to let him play on the big screen instead of the small screen of a tablet. It works great, and he was very pleased that the controls are actually better than the one on a tablet. It was a little learning curve to find out all the controls. It also can be played on wii-u screen.

    Endless Creativity

    My son loves this game because the level of creativity is completely up to the gamer. He often spends numerous hours playing and developing his own worlds. You can basically build anything that you want within the world. The Mario Mashup Pack was a bonus in providing more character skins. Great Game!

    Bought this game to play and experience the Mario World in Minecraft and I have to say its very cool. Minecraft looks so good on my HD big screen, the Wii U is definitely the place to play this game. Have to say its kinda silly Mojang didn't use the gamepad to really make this game great though.

    His Minecraft Storymode on the iPad keeps getting corrupted so I broke down and got him the MC for Wii U. I was going to wait til Christmas but he's on a total MC kick right now and I want to keep his imagination play going. This is a very extensive game. He will play it for many years to come.

    I like the blocks and the new updates. The cities that were added are excellent and now there are so many more options, its hard to know where to begin! I like the fact that I can change my skin as often as I want and the added feature of being in Mario land. Fun for the whole family.

    Minecraft is great my son like this version better than the tablet version because he gets to do it on the big TV screen. Minecraft in general is a great game for kids as it inspires creativity in kids instead of mindless fighting, jumping around and shooting things type of games.
