Stuffed to the brim with content, Wii Party U is a shining example of the Wii U difference. Many of the mini-games on offer really push the unique features of the system to create novel yet highly entertaining experiences that can't be found elsewhere. While the TV Party mode mostly contains traditional mini-game examples that tend to place the emphasis on the Wii Remote rather than the Wii U GamePad, the choice on offer is staggering.
It's not perfect, however; some of the mini-games rely a little too much on chance and the rather limited GamePad Party mode detracts from the experience somewhat. These minor points aside, Wii Party U is an impressive and innovative showcase of what the Wii U can do, and serves as one of the most effective demonstrations of the console's unique hardware that we've seen so far. 8/10
