Great console

The graphics are a lot smoother than the nintendo wii. There's a couple of games that I would buy for this console. It only has 32G of memory so it will fill up quickly.

This product is SOOOOOO fun! I LOVE IT!!!

5

This product is so much fun, it has brought great fun and entertainment for my entire family. I love to sit down and play games with the kids, and it's great that we can also watch Netflix on this device also. It is very convenient. Also it is really cool that if someone else wants to watch the television then you can actually still change the input on the television, but still play some of the games on the game pad, also you can still watch Netflix on just the game pad while someone else uses the television. It's really a great option and keeps my kids from fighting over the television as much as they used to anyways. Graphics Quality I think that they graphics look very well, it is really neat to see how these things get better with each device that Nintendo releases. I really liked the graphics in one of the zombie games that we had, it just looked really neat. Game Variety I like that there are so many different types of games, there are games for us adults and the zombie ones that I don't really let my kids play yet. But then there are so much more for my kids to play also, and tons of different character games. We all love Mario though. Controller Comfort I wasn't sure about how big the controller was at first but thought that it was neat that you have that big screen to use on the controller. However it turns out that the controller, even though it is very big, it is very comfortable to use and I would not change the size of that controller. Ease of Use It is extremely easy to use, I think that is very convenient. My kids are able to do everything themselves, which is really great. Durability Seems that this product is very durable, and that it should last for a long time. Besides that I think that all Nintendo products are made that way. I still have every system that they have ever made packed up that we still pull out every once in a while and all of those systems still work great. So I didn't have any doubts buying a NIntendo product at all.

Nintendo is back

5

This is why I started to play video games. This console brings gaming back to its roots. The Wii U can mix a casual and hardcore gamer with ease. It has so many great titles that are great alone or with friends. The tablet screen is shockingly comfortable in the hand and nice and light weight. Games are just starting to tap into the potential of the extra screen. There is so much around the horizon and it is full of amazing gameplay! Imagine RPG's where you never have to pause the game to change inventory. The possibilities are endless. If you need a new console please do yourself a favor and pick up the Wii U I promise you will not regret it! Graphics Quality This is not going to beat the xbox one or ps4 in graphics but it is still amazing and crisp. Mario in high definition is a treat! Game Variety Endless amounts of great games Controller Comfort Every controller they sell for the Wii U is so comfortable. I have never felt fatigue when using anything they offer Ease of Use My young singling and father both were able to figure this console out and that says a lot! Durability Nintendo makes amazing quality products period

Great fun for all

I love playing with my Nintendo Wii U console. Also love the game which came with. setup was pretty easy, just hook up the console to the correct connections and HDMI. Games in the Nintendo arent as big a collection as the Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 but thats okay with me because the games they do have, which is plenty, are awesome to play. Love playing Super Mario Brothers, Classic forever, Zelda, Lego Marvel and so many more. I love how I can play it using the television and once someone wants to watch something it is okay because I am able to play with it using the controller itself, which has a screen to do so. I am also able to to play my old Nintendo games which I think is great. Love also how I am able to browse the internet using the Nintendo Wii U. Picture quality/graphics is so beautiful, no doubt Nintendo knew what they were doing. Graphics Quality Graphics are awesome. Game Variety Has a pretty strong lineup of games Controller Comfort Feels smooth to handle Ease of Use Very easy to use Durability have had it for a while now

Nintendo's successful venture into next generation systems.

4

Nintendo has always been my favorite video game console creator. However, the classic Wii left quite a bit to be desired. The Wii U takes all the good qualities of the Wii such as game variety and disposes of the negative aspects of the Wii like turning relaxing games into a workout. It is backwards compatible with Wii games and controllers which gives you an even greater variety of games to choose from. It also has new downloadable games on its own Virtual Console along with all the games from the original Wii's Virtual Console. The graphics are amazing, and the speed with which everything runs is phenomenal. There are a few downsides to the system though, the main one being that it produces fewer games a month than the Playstation 4 or Xbox One. The greatest feature of the Wii U is definitely the gamepad it comes with. You play your games on a handheld device that has a touch screen. When playing Legend of Zelda Windwaker, for instance, you can play the game on your tv and have your map up on your gamepad so that you don't have to pause your game to look at the map. The best feature of the gamepad by far is that once a game is started on your tv, you can change the channel on your tv, and your family can watch tv while you play your game exclusively on the gamepad. Overall, my opinion is that the Wii U is the best choice of the next generation game consoles. It's the cheapest of the next generation systems, the graphics are stunning, and the versatility of being able to play a game while you watch tv make this system a must buy for any avid gamer. Graphics Quality The graphics on games, even games intended to look cartoon like are great. Game Variety There are quite a few games, but they aren't putting out a lot of games each month like other systems. Controller Comfort The handheld device fits perfectly into any size hands. Ease of Use You can play on the handheld system while you watch tv.

This will be amazing once Nintendo releases more games.

I like the WiiU. The GamePad is good; I like how it can be used with the games. It is definitely more powerful than the Wii, but there aren't many good games out yet. Graphics Quality The HDMI allows for much better graphics than the Wii. The GamePad has decent graphics, but they don't need to be fabulous because most of the time you are looking at the TV. Game Variety This is where the WiiU is struggling now. It looks as though a lot of good games will be released this year by Nintendo, so I think this score will be going up by the end of 2014. Controller Comfort The GamePad fits nicely in your hands. The buttons are all easy to press and are in reach by your thumbs. Ease of Use It may take a little getting used to, but it's a very easy system to use once you play around with it for a little while. Durability I haven't dropped anything, but all of the components look well made, so I don't think they would break easily. I still have Nintendo stuff that is anywhere from 5 to 25 years old, and everything is still working, so I wouldn't expect anything different from the WiiU.

The WiiU continues the success of the Wii

4

The Wii U capitalizes on the same concept that drew audiences to the previous Wii, motion and family gaming. They have taken it one step further by bringing some more adult / hardcore titles to their stable such as Batman Arkham City, and ZombiU. However this is still a system geared towards family and children. This is a good system and offers some interesting and fun filled games for the family, but if you are hardcore gamer looking for action, shooters or racing. I'd advise looking to either the Xbox One or Playstation 4. Graphics Quality The graphics are significantly improved over the the Wii, but are not as refined as the next gen offerings from Sony and Microsoft. Game Variety Most games on the system are family oriented, and title selection is still fairly limited for how long the system has been available for sale. Controller Comfort The game pad is one of the larger more unwieldy controllers on the market. The screen is what makes this difficult for little hands or to hold for a long duration. The Pro controller is similar in comfort to the Xbox360 and Xbox one controller, but is not able to be used as the primary controller for all games due to the second screen functionality. Ease of Use The interface for the system is astoundingly easy and navigation is a breeze. The whole family should be able to use the system with ease. Durability I have had my system since shortly after launch and haven't experienced any issues with it or the gamepad. I would recommend getting a rubber or other protect case for the gamepad if you have children in your home due to the chances of damage if it is dropped.
