So fun!...Kids loves it....Only problem I have is the DLC is a little overpriced for some new characters and favorites from older smash games....A little chaotic and lots of visual stimulation but that's what made it continuously challenging and fun.

great it...Great Buy...This however was patched before release and can be sped up by creating levels (no one knows how many blocks need to be placed to speed it up but it does work over time) or you can just adjust your calendar to next day log back in until you unlock it all and then when done put it back to normal....What would have made this game even better, however, is what's not included: namely: slopes, more enemies, taller levels, different colored pipes, more themes, left-scrolling levels, checkpoints, secret exits and keys... But again, this is an amazing game.
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.
Very fun...I love it...I like when my game cases are in mint condition, perfect, and the one I got had some writing indented onto the top (i.e. someone used it as a table and pressed down on the pen too hard resulting in my case being tainted)....The only issues I've encountered are some framerate issues while Link is running through areas heavy with trees and grass, but it lessens after leaving the tutorial area (my guess is they were trying to make the tutorial area as beautifully dense as possible).
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.
CRAZY FUN...Love it...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...Online play is the most dynamic mode of play, but it can be intensely frustrating if you're not comfortable with fighting games or if you haven't reached a decent proficiency with a Pokemon's move set.
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?
So fun...3d fun!...Super Mario 3D World has taken the stellar core premise of Super Mario 3D Land (it itself a fantastic Mario game and one of the best 3DS games) and launched it into the stratosphere with exceptional execution, staggering density of content, and breathtaking creativity...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.
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.
Very good...very fun...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....I don't 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 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?
A great...Such fun!...Beyond the witty dialogue (what game has that anymore?), the innovative play makes this a game that both gamers and casual players alike would enjoy....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).
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.
Love it...good deal...Lots of variety and while it's easy to pick up and start playing as a beginner, there is plenty of challenge for more experienced player as well....Graphics are everything I want in a 3D platformer like great sound, music, gameplay and bosses that take time to learn to beat Ugh could be easier haha but so darn good I keep coming back to play and worth it!

Love it!...good buy ....My kid loves it, my kid askme fir a game tha cost around 40, for the second game they give this one for 14 it was better than the expensive one...I purchased this game for my nieces for Christmas and they are still playing it everyday usually they are begging for a new game every week.

Featuring the fun of original Minecraft with a few new twists, Minecraft: Wii U Edition offers countless hours of excitement.
Cool game...5 stars....It allows you to have something to work towards as you play through the various game modes and earn coins, drastically extending replay value....Oh, and Mario isn't 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.
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.
Good game!...A must buy...(Netflix in the beginning was the BEST on a Wii U, until it started only mirroring the images on both screens) I digress, this remake of the GameCube classic gives brand new life into the game!...The art style is classic, and the improvements to the gameplay and lighting system make for a more enjoyable experience from the GameCube version.
Meet Link. In Nintendo Selects Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, he has an entire ocean to explore in this remake of the legendary GameCube classic. Control the waves as you hop from island to island, explore countless puzzles and meet interesting people, often very briefly, in Nintendo Selects Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker.
