Very Fun...Best game...Bought this for my son, and he can't stop raving about it, mostly because of his love of creating things in Minecraft and LittleBigPlanet, but I actually played one of his levels and had a good time, playing a new level of old school Mario was exciting and nostalgic at the same time!...Has most of the iconic items from all the classic 2D Mario games, including Super Mario Bros 1, Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario World, and New Super Mario Bros U. With so many people creating their own levels, you can basically play new Mario levels forever....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.
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.
Have fun!...Love it...Overall score: 10/10 Open world experience: 10/10 Originality: 10/10 Hours of gameplay: Infinite Game details: 10/10 Awesome-factor: 10/10 Replay value: 10/10 Inventory and customization: 10/10 Frames per second: 8/10 Difficulty: 7/10 (there is a hard mode coming) Only bad thing to mention: Need to purchase amiibos to get some cool extra items Bias while reviewing this game: Total fan of Zelda...You probably do not need this review but since you are reading it anyway my only complaint with a stellar experience is that the Wii U version and the Switch version are on hardware that is just not up to the task of pushing the limited graphics that this game has.
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.
Love it!...Not bad...His counter ego, Pikachu Libre is HEAVY on grabs and hit stuns, is always in the fray, and performs best by boosting his defense and attack when executing certain moves, up close and in your face....my son loves fighting games and Pokemon and this one is done well; there was a Pokemon Fighting Game maybe for GameCube (maybe early Wii) if that tells you how far and between these are; and this one is very cool
You've collected them all, battled against countless monsters and immersed yourself in the rich storylines throughout the franchise.

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?
Love it!!...Nice game...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...Now that its $20 no reason not to jump in and honestly if you missed WiiU then now is a great time to jump in, get a used system out of somones closet and enjoy a lot of exclusive content for very cheap prices before NX arives!
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 RPG....love it....I gave it a 10 because it does some things so spectacularly well (combat, world/environment, depth, fun), despite many smaller flaws (time text size, tedious submenus, lots of things not explained well, subpar close-up graphics, and a lot of reading)....This game is beautiful and make sure you read the manual in the game home menu, because you will need information that you normally don't know about, plus this game has mechs seriously you will enjoy this game
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?
Love it!!...Must buy...The battle system is a slight evolution of Sticker Star's sticker system: there's still a lot of busywork to manage cards, but the paint mechanic does allow you to stretch out your supply when needed....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.
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...I like it...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....I like it, even though it is different then the NES version, still very fun, and I love that my daughter an I can play a game we can both enjoy.

Unlock hidden collectibles and take down powerful bosses as you swim, swing, and jump through six islands full of puzzles and enemies.

It's fun....Very fun...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....Beyond the nostalgia associated with Super Mario Bros, one of my favorite things about this game is that the family can play together.
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.
