Nintendo Land Review (Wii U) | Negative World

With the innovations of each gaming generation, it seems that some elements are inevitably left behind. The N64 and PlayStation ushered in a new dimension to play in and explore, yet the tight 2-D platformers of the 16-bit era became scarce. And as online gaming became a bigger focus in this generation, many titles have forgone local multiplayer entirely.

The idea of online multiplayer gaming being inherently superior to local is a frustrating one for me, as I've always enjoyed the the social element of sharing game experiences in the same room with friends and family. So I'm quite thankful to see that Nintendo realizes this as well, as Nintendo Land--like Super Smash Bros, Wii Sports, and Mario Party before it--is built all around the idea of bringing people together. (NintendoLand, Wii U) 9.1/10
