Nintendo Land

 

A Theme Park of attractions that show what the Wii U can do.

Excellent team and competitive games ; Ingenious use of the Wii U Pad ; A clutch of excellent solo efforts ; Pikmin Adventure is absolutely great

Some solo games fall flat ; Monita's constant wittering

Metroid Blast is more challenging still: a five-player, first-person shooter than can be tackled in either competitive or cooperative modes. In either case, up to four players fight on foot, using a Wii remote to aim and shoot and the nunchuck...

Can Nintendo Land prove the Wii U's Wii Sports?

NintendoLand" is an interesting experiment. It manages to succeed in balancing both the broad accessibility of Wii Sports and a more ‘gamer’ focused title, only stumbling once or twice along the way. For players with some experience of gaming there is...

Nintendo Land Wii U Review

 

Nintendo Land is a package featuring a plethora of mini-games with the intention of showing off what the GamePad can do. Because of its structure, reviewing this title like others would be unfair so each mini-game in the title has its own mini-review,...

The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest ; Pikmin Adventure ; Mario Chase ; Luigi's Ghost Mansion ; Donkey Kong Crash Course ; Yoshi's Fruit Cart ; Animal Crossing Sweet Day

Balloon Trip Breeze ; Captain Falcon's Twister Race ; Takamuru's Ninja Castle ; Octopus Dance ; Metroid Blast

Nintendo Land Review

 

Nintendo Land's varied attractions offer plenty of family-friendly fun and make great use of the Wii U's capabilities.

Fun single-player attractions make good use of the Wii U tablet ; Plenty of enjoyable ways to play with friends cooperatively and competitively ; Mario Chase is a terrific twist on hide-and-seek ; Nintendo themes give the attractions some charm

A few attractions are too difficult or too shallow

Balloon Trip Breeze is a side-scrolling attraction in which you watch the television while moving the stylus on the tablet, which creates breezes that carry your balloon-wearing Mii along. The indirect control method makes avoiding floating spikes and...

Nintendo Land Review

 

As the Wii U's showcase title, designed to demonstrate the new console's touchscreen controller working in tandem with a TV, Nintendo Land does a decent, albeit uneven, job.

Three of the solo games are decent ; The three chase games are excellent

Ideally needs to be played with numerous friends ; Not enough good content for the price tag

Nintendo Land

 

Yoshi's Fruit Cart makes good use of the GamePad. The goal is to draw a path on the GamePad for your Yoshi cart to collect fruit that's on the ground. The twist is that the fruit is invisible on the GamePad and instead is displayed on your TV. There...

Nintendo Land

 

Packed in with premium consoles and packed with Nintendo characters, is this the Wii Sports of the Wii U?

It may not be at the top of your play list in the long term, but as an ensemble it's well worth a look - particularly if you have a fondness for the various included Nintendo franchises.

Nintendo Land

 

Like an amusement park version of Mario Party minus the board game, Nintendo Land arrives, without restrictions on which classic Nintendo series it can contain. Various characters from Nintendo's franchises are represented here, each given a little...

Nintendo Land isn’t a bad game, for free. As something that is included with the system, as long as you bought the deluxe model, this makes for an interesting tech demo, letting you and your friends try out different methods of how a game can be played...
