My kids love this!!!

Anonymous, Newegg
25 April 2014
  • Summary: My kids play together, they get along playing with it, and there's no need for sharing or taking turns.
  • Pros: Finally, a Nintendo console that can do 1080p! I tried playing my Skyward Sword (when the kids aren't using it, which is rare :P) and it finally looks good on a 1080p TV; seeing as the original Wii was only able to do 480p/720p (?). Having a 4 player co-op game like New Mario Bros. was a great idea; and the knowledge of being able to use Wiimotes to play 4 people and the Wii U tablet-controller adds a 5th player who can play the role of either helper or destroyer and ...
  • Cons: The Wii U hybrid tablet-controller seems bulky and there's a higher risk of damage if dropped as opposed to the smaller, sleeker Wiimotes, otherwise no complaints here!

Should You Buy This?

Alaedin K., Amazon

  • Summary: The Wii U has been getting some very heavy criticisms as of late. A lot of gaming websites are all ready declaring it a failure and I don't really believe that's the case. Wii U has some offerings that are completely unique to it and that may or may not resurrect the system from its stale launch, but only the future will tell. The Wii U is the most economic "Next Gen" System.

Family fun

  • Summary: I got this primarily so my teen daughter and I could spend time together playing video games. Of course, I grew up on NES and SNES, so I know the Nintendo brand well. However, as an adult, I've played primarily adult-themed games with Sony's PlayStation. Unfortunately, because of the mature nature of the games, I haven't been able to share that time with my daughter.

The Wii U is not a kiddy system and can compete with the rest!

Game developer, Amazon

  • Summary: My first review :) The Wii U is a great succesor to the Wii. The games are fantastic, while not super hardcore as PS4 and Xbox one, I personally find that I can play the top games on those systems (or near identical experiences) on the PS3 or Xbox360. The games on the Wii U, at least the exclusives deliver a unique gaming experience you cant find elsewhere.

Review the product, not the price, please.

  • Summary: This set is an exceptional value. I had been holding out on the Wii U for a while, waiting for something like this to come up. After working a few 60 hour weeks, I paid for my PS4 and decided to upgrade the old lady's Wii to a Wii U. And? Wise decision. While I'm still not a fan of the massive Game Pad, the sheer amount of enjoyment you can get out of this package is incredible.

I love my Wii U

Stephanie Stirling, Amazon
27 September 2013
  • Summary: I got my Wii U few months ago and, the more I experience the more I love. my only regret is not getting the bigger hard drive. Though if you bought the 8 gig like I did you can upgrade to 32 gig with a SD card which are not hugely expensive. I enjoy playing on gamepad and not tying up the TV. I also like i can play a game in my bedroom instead of having to stay in my living room where the tv is.
