  • Summary: The Wii U’s biggest problem is confusion. The average consumer just doesn’t understand what it is, and frankly I can’t blame them. The Wii was simple—wave the magic wand to play sports, cook, drive Mario Karts, shoot bad guys—and it came out during a simpler time. But the Wii U is a big bundle of mixed messages, conflicted marketing and lack of clear direction. Its name is even weirder and more counterintuitive than its predecessor.

  • Summary: Wii Party U brings a party experience to the living room, but the party's kind of quiet.
  • Pros: Free controller with the game; large number of minigames to play; minigames that use gamepads are fairly inventive.
  • Cons: Only a few minigames are fun to play; game boards are fairly bland and luck-based;

Lots of group fun encapsulated in 80+ mini-games.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Wii Party U contains more than 80 mini-games. Players use a handful of modes and can use an interactive board game or a game show-type setting or just play one game at a time. Some of the mini-games involve minor cartoon violence like shooting cartoon cannons or lasers, but nothing about the content is gratuitous or overtly aggressive. No one is ever shown hurt.

Wii Party U (WiiU) - Review

VGChartz
11 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Unfortunately a large chunk of Wii Party U is boring and uninspired. And it really is unfortunate, because upon booting up the first of the bigger games – Highway Rollers - I felt I was in for a Mario Party -styled treat. Sadly, that's the only time the game ever comes even remotely close to the quality and fun of its spiritual predecessor; most of what's on display is competent but dull, and lacks any real direction or cohesion.

  • Conclusion: With friends or family, Wii Party U can be a lot of fun. Not all of the minigames are great, some aren't necessarily worth a second look, but for a casual, laugh-filled gathering, Wii Party U has enough quality content and variety to provide an entertaining time.

  • Summary: Nintendo has a storied history with multiplayer games. Back in the days of the Nintendo 64 and the GameCube, its power to get four people in a room together was unrivaled. Now, every console supports four or more controllers, and the online arena makes it easier to play together than ever before. But sometimes, there's just no substitution for getting a bunch of people together in the same location, and rocking out some fun, old-fashioned minigames.

Turn Out The Lights, The Party's Over

Game Informer
25 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Concept: Another packaging of minigames by Nintendo; this one splits the difference between Wii Sports and Mario Party Graphics: The visuals are crisp and colorful, and the Miis provide some visual humor Sound: Forgettable, chipper video game Muzak in the classic Japanese style Playability: Overall, the controls are solid, and I’m glad it at least tries to use to GamePad Entertainment: It’s a bland, completely unoriginal product made with decent craftsmanship.
