The Top 10 Best Wii-U Games So Far
The Wii-U is still fleshing out its place in the console world. At the same time, Nintendo is famous for its quality first party titles, and the advanced hardware of the Wii-U has attracted the interest of many 3rd party developers. So far, these games stand out:
10. Resident Evil: Revelations
Set between RE4 and RE5, this title landed an 80 from Metascore. For the hardcore gamers out there, playing through the story on Infernal difficulty is as difficult as you could ask for. This version of the game features a refined HUD and handy map. Of course, it also features lots of zombies and horror.
9. Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien
Artful and hilarious, this game has great music and fast-flowing game-play. It's easy to get lost in the beautifully crafted worlds for long periods of time. An 84 from Metascore backs up the solid feel this game has.
8. Mutant Mudds Deluxe
Another 84 from Metascore, this is another simple yet beautiful game. A retro feel, (12 bit!) with lots of platforming fun. The story is very simple, yet the ability to change the difficulty challenges old and new players alike.
Indie anyone? This game will bend your mind with new concepts at every turn. There are over 100 levels with puzzles that will keep you busy for a while. The geometric world keeps things interesting. You may find addiction nearly unavoidable.
6. Need for Speed: Most Wanted U
Most Wanted is back? Oh yes. 86 on Metascore, this game shines particularly brightly on the Wii-U. If you want a finely tuned, detailed racing game, this is the title for you.
5. Pikmin 3
Nintendo does indeed deliver in the first-party world. Continuing followers of the franchise will not be disappointed, and newcomers will be pleasantly surprised. This game really shows off the unique mechanisms the Wii-U controller allows for. Truly, a console defining title.
4. New Super Luigi U
An interesting offering from Nintendo, this puts a more difficult twist on New Super Mario Bros U. It provides older and more skilled gamers with a chance to revisit the difficulty older Mario games were known for.
3. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
Another remake, this game is just as delightful the second time around. It makes all the right revisions and cuts to refine this game into even more of a masterpiece. The remastered graphics are truly beautiful. Any Zelda fan will be thrilled.
2. Rayman Legends
This game is brilliant across the board. Beautiful artful graphics, imaginative levels, and sheer fun adorn this platformer. Even the story will interest you, moving you to push through the game. Admittedly, you'll still be at it a while.
1. Super Mario 3D World
Mario never fails to deliver. Yet again, he has proved himself in this delightful experience. From beginning to end, players will be mildly challenged and vastly entertained. The 4-player co-op allows for great times with your friends, and the game-play allows for fun even if alone. This should indeed rank the top of any gamers Wii-U list.
