Rated 2 out of 10 by harrypottar This gives the Wii U a bad rap
Ok, it must be me, I see lots of great reviews for this game, I just don't get it. I got it with the deluxe Wii U and poor it bad. Its meant to give you some idea of what you can do with the Wii U. If you show this game to hard core gamers they will never buy a Wii U, it just look like a Wii. First off most games require more than one player, I play on my own mostly so epic fail there. There is a one player driving game, that MAKES you look at the pad and steer with the pad. Now the TV graphics are rubbish but the pad graphics n this game would shame an 8 bit retro gamer. So you looking at the bad graphics on the pad and missing all the action on the screen. They could put what they like on the TV cause you never see it while you only use the pad. Sorry just don't get this game, really low quality graphics and game play. Should be free but no way the price they want for it. I know Nintendo is trying to reach a wider audience but this is so bad, this is why gamers did not buy the Wii. Avoid unless you like typical low quality Wii games.

Hello gamers and welcome to part 2 of my wii u previews. today we i will take a look at nintendo land. based on the numerous trailers and gameplays. nintendo land looks like a fun filled nintendo theme park. i will talk about a few of the 10 games. in animal crossing sweet day there are 3 people who controll wii u remotes and they collect candies. while the 2 chasers try to hit the collectors and they controll the wii u gamepad. the winner is determined when either the time runs out or all 3 collectors have been hit. and in donkey kong crash course you are this barrel on wheels and you tilt the wii u game pad into the direction you want to go. too fast and you smash into the wall too slow and you tip over. and finally. i dont know the exact name of the game but in this game you are your mii and your hiding from ghosts in aluigis mansion type game. so overall this game is awesome looking. p.s i messed up and said new super maro bros u released new years eve i made a mistake it releses the day the wii u comes out just like nintndo land
Rated 10 out of 10 by WiiAreAwesome One of the best
I really love this game, It is so much fun to go and play this game with others! This game after owning it for 7 months now, I still go and play it even when my shelf of games has tons of other choices. For sure this game is one of the best games on the Wii U for sure. I will always love this game and I recommend it to everybody, especially party gamers! BTW: On the Zelda game and Metroid game, use the wii remote characters not the gamepad, just trust me on this one.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Matther FUN!
This is more fun than I thought. This game came with the deluxe set. There are many great mini games to play either alone or with lots of people. Some of these games are a bit challenging as one person with the game pad is a ghost and must stay hidden from people using the wiimotes that are trying to find the ghost. The people with wiimotes use the TV screen and the miis have flashlights and must find the ghost in the dark. The player with the game pad is the ghost and can see everyone but must stay in the dark and remain hidden or attack the other players. This is fun and challenging due to the fact neither player can really cheat and you have to use your brain a little bit. If this didnt make sense then just buy the game and see for your self!! You will be addicted!
Rated 8 out of 10 by thegreatgatsby Fun mini games, no lasting appeal.
NintendoLand was the first title I experienced after purchasing the Wii U (mainly because the title came in the deluxe set that I purchased). This game is merely a compilation of mini games and helps show users ways in which the gamepad can be utilized. There were very few games I didn't enjoy. It's definitely worth checking out to see how the gamepad is utilized. There are even a few mini games that can hook you for longer than the 5 to 10 minutes (Yoshi's Fruit Cart and the Donkey Kong mini game in which the name escapes me). Overall, I wouldn't exactly recommend buying this for the 60 dollars it's going for new and whatever it is used but if you haven't purchased the Wii U and are looking to do so go for the Deluxe bundle and check this game out.
Rated 8 out of 10 by GameGod580 In Short: Lasting Appeal is Not Great
I would play this everyday if they made DLC for this game, DLC would be perfect for a party game like this, Just Dance for the Wii U has DLC but why not this?! That gets me angry every once and a while, but who knows later Nintendo might actually add DLC. It has many great co-op, multiplayer, and single player mini-games. I have the Wii U Deluxe Set so it came with my Wii U system, but if you have the Wii U Basic Set and want to see what this system can do I recommend you do that, definitely. This game gets boring after playing all the mini-games over and over, if you want a long lasting Wii U game don't buy this, just buy another Wii U game, just remember in short: lasting appeal is not great.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Swerd It's all good
My Wii U package came with a preloaded copy of this, only tried out the Zelda minigame thus far, but this game is pretty sweet. Would be a 10, but, there're other games available for Wii U that hold my interest a bit longer.
Rated 0 out of 10 by ShadJV Warning: Read Before Preordering
I recommend not preordering this yet. The reason is there is a high chance this is a pack-in title with the Wii U. I mean, I'm sure GameStop wouldn't charge you then or something. Still, until the launch details are released (Wii U price, date, and what's in the box), I'd hold off on this particular preorder. This is most likely the Wii Sports equivalent for Wii U. With that being said, this looks fun, though not worth $50 or anything. I mean, it's simply a dozen minigames. I hope it's a pack-in. If not, I won't pay more than $20 for it. If you want some bigger Wii U experiences, preorder Pikmin 3, Rayman Legends, New Super Mario Bros 3, or ZombiU, among others.
Rated 9 out of 10 by chri5dub12 Probably the selling point of Wii U
This game is just fantastic. I'm surprised it doesn't have a higher rating! The graphics are gorgeous, the games are just beyond fun, and there were so many wow moments to this game that I felt like a little kid again. You earn coins for prizes, and the best wow moment was getting a jukebox prize with the legend of zelda music on it. Nintendo had an orchestra remaster the Lost Woods theme, and WOWWWWW it was amazing! This game brings alot of promise for the future of Wii U, and makes you beg for the HD Link, Samus and Mario. Do yourself a favor- spend 50 more dolllars and get the deluxe wii u. You will not regret it. This game is worth it.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Gary Honest Review
I got this game in the deluxe pack, which by the way, I recommend over the basic. This game was the only game that I came home with with my shiny new console. I was so excited to get into the game and see what the control pad could do. I jumped into the game and noticed quickly how the game pad was essential. You use it to look around, which at first, honestly, is terrible. I got used to the concept a few minutes in and now, a week later, it feels second nature. This consists of 12 mini games. Some of those games are for 1 player, some for more. The most fun ones are the ones where you battle your friends. On that note, let me bring you to this. Buy Wiimotes. Buy them with Motionplus. Maybe even some nunchucks, You'll need them for this game in some games and probably for others in the future. Anyway, the games. The games range from absolutely amazing to trashy. There are 2 which are the reason I even pop the game in now. Mario chase, and Luigi's ghost mansion (those may or may not be what they are actually called). It is so much fun to have 2 friends or 3 or 4 friends up against one. At the end of the day, I would not buy this game if it wasn't bundled with the console. They next day I ran out and got the new Mario to keep me occupied. Only acquire this game if you have friends to play with or else you'll have access to half of it and it will be dry.
