Nintendo Land Review: A Solid Showpiece for the New Wii U l Entertainment Fuse

Nintendo Land is not only a solid showpiece for the Wii U, but also shows potential with the gamepad from both control and gameplay perspectives. Not all of the twelve mini-games are sure hits, but a good amount of them are fun enough to be played in short bursts. The multiplayer mini-games are the most fun and where you’ll spend the most time with if you have friends to play with you locally. No online play does a hurt in a bit for those and the team-based games like Zelda and Metroid, but it's understandable to see why Nintendo decided to leave them with just local multiplayer. This game also covers some of Nintendo’s best and not so popular franchises, so here's hope more franchises like Pokemon, Kirby, and Star Fox get the Nintendo Land treatment with downloadable content or a new full-fledged sequel. Will Nintendo Land for the Wii U have the same impact as Wii Sports did for the original Wii? Probably not, but Nintendo Land is still worth playing to see what the Wii U is capable of now and the future. (NintendoLand, Wii U) 8.0/10
