Love it....So Fun!...This game has an insane amount of content, the animation and details for each character is amazing, the gameplay is easy to pick up but hard to master, the game runs at 1080p and 60 Fps and it looks just gorgeous....Only thing that I didn't like which people may not agree with is that they took out the story mode which was kind of irritating to play I guess when you usually just play Smash with friends but there was just something fun about story mode....Got a great deal on black Friday and my son loves playing this game

Not bad....great it...If you grew up playing Super Mario and spent countless hours imagining your own worlds to play through or how much different the game would be if someone had made a level just to troll the player, then fear not for Super Mario Maker has finally arrived....The tools provided in this game allow the user to create a level layout, choose a Mario game to frame it in (Mario Bros, Super Mario World, Mario 3, and New Super Mario), then pick enemies and placement, power ups, music, pipes and then publish it to be played by others....Amazing Black Friday sale they had for this.
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.

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.

Better yet, do all that, and then show off your own ideas.
So good...Love it....Aside from the fact the its 720p instead of 900p on Nintendo Switch (docked), and a few framrate drops here and there, the Wii U version of the game is still the amazing game it is on Nintendo Switch with very few other significant differences between them and recommended for those who have a Wii U and want to wait until the Nintendo Switch gets more compelling software and the launch period issues have been worked out....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
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...Fighters on Nintendo platforms have used the above phrase as a selling point for years-- For one, there's the immensely popular Smash Bros. circuit, and that's even before you get into stranger things like the Puch-Out!!...Fun gameplay all around, gorgeous graphics, A-MAZING moves that you'll wish were in the main series game (they pulled out all the stops to make this as true to source as possible), intricate battle system similar to Soul Caliber and other titles.
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?
LOVE IT...real fun...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....This is another great Nintendo Mario game, sure it is a spin off of the 3DS game but it is technically excellent and having the local mutli-player makes it a great party game.
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.
So funny...Good fun...There is resource management involved though as you can only hold a certain amount of cards in your inventory until upgraded thus a recommend re-stalking on cards after each level....Sticker Star wasn't a perfect game - it wasn't terrible, but some of the exploration elements were far too vague and unrealistic in their explanations, requiring constant visits to IGN to figure out what to do.
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.
Loved it!...good game...The ability to play multiplayer battles is what I enjoy, but I dislike that as a gamer when I was younger, I'm the worst at this game - I get destroyed by 5 year olds!...I know that the PC edition will always be the best and nothing will top it, but this game remains a really, REALLY fun game.
Bring the adventure of Minecraft to your Wii console with Minecraft: Wii U Edition. Master your castle-building techniques and explore block-tastic new worlds with the Creative Mode, or take on new enemies with online battles using the split-screen functionality. Featuring the fun of original Minecraft with a few new twists, Minecraft: Wii U Edition offers countless hours of excitement.
A must buy...Fun to play...The art style is classic, and the improvements to the gameplay and lighting system make for a more enjoyable experience from the GameCube version....I wasn't sure about this game because of its implied tone from the character models and overly bright game world, but this turned out to be an amazing zelda experience.
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.
Solid Game...Not bad....This game is good in small doses and I would recommend this to anyone who likes mario party but the only bad thing that I could find about the game is not having any mini games...If you're a fan of Animal Crossing characters and events, you'll probably enjoy this game, or if you're looking for a casual game to play with someone who isn't to gaming.
You've joined them throughout important times in their lives. Helped them explore their town, built lives for them and more.

Great fun!...very good...It also allows you to download the app to your phone to use as an additional controller, so you can have as many people play as you'd like, regardless of having enough wii remotes (just don't get really into it and throw your phone!)....The song list is pretty up to date with songs that are played on the radio now and also has some older songs that are great....Got this game on black Friday for a good bargain.

Is great!...So Fun!...This would have been a 5 star review except for the fact that some of the same old songs are showing up again AND you have to buy them all over again....as always I like the dance games because its fun to dance to music that I enjoy but this time the song list wasn't as good in my opinion, but I still had fun with it!...Good deal from Black Friday shopping.

5 stars...fun fun fun...Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens closely follows the action & characters of the movie, but with a lot more tongue-in-cheek humor and great gameplay....Bought it for my niece who loves LEGOs (as much as I do) and whom I took to go watch The Force Awakens so when she asked for the game I jumped all over it....Got this for black Friday, awesome deal, awesome game

Nice RPG...Great Buy....Pros + Combat is balanced (not too easy or too difficult) + Being able to see the turn order for the current turn as well as the next turn during battle....Still, on its own merits the game is fun and the setting of modern, JPOP-py Shibuya is fun and lighthearted, but still as challenging as any other SMT game.

Great game...Kids fun...I wasn't sure about buying this for my son because he is usually excited about the know characters in the game, but I've to say that he has loved this game....It is like GTA but in LEGO, I loved the open world game it has, you can drive and take role as a policeman to save the city.

It lets you hunt down villain Rex Fury as undercover detective Chase McCain, and the Wii U GamePad provides bonus content, such as mission updates and location tracking. LEGO City: Undercover combines action-packed game play with the trademark comedy from the LEGO series.
Limited fun...Good fun...The idea to use live, first-person footage sounds better as an idea, because while playing I either hardly noticed (focusing on the notes) or got a headache from the motion....The gameplay is similar to Guitar Hero and Rock Band games of old; you press fret buttons on the plastic controller and strum the plastic strum bar in time with the notes that appear on screen.
