Super Mario 3D World

This product was recommended by Nicolas Holand from GooseSmurfs

Any Super Mario game gives us this nostalgic feeling that makes us reminisce about our childhood. Thus, by playing this advanced Super Mario game on the Wii fulfills our memories from the past and leveled it up. This game is best played with multiplayer.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

This product was recommended by Emily Appelbaum from Family Destinations Guide

I’m quite glad that my son was also able to play this game although it’s the more updated one. Even before, this particular Donkey Kong title has had a reputation for being a little unforgiving taking from the original challenge without the training wheels as you go on a platforming adventure around DK’s icy tropical paradise. It’s a really fun game plus a real barrel breaking haven, giving nostalgic memories from it’s very first versions.

Pinball Store Online

This is such a great game for both children and adults, it is good we make the world know how much fun this game brings as the majority of people don’t have a clue about this game. This company has facilitated the sale and delivery of arcade games in the USA and Uk and satisfied most of its clients and now they want to make every part of the world know about this game with your help.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

This product was recommended by Aaron Bossig from The Hungry Trilobyte Podcast

Captain Toad Treasure Tracker is one of the best Wii-U games, it’s a perfect blend of action and puzzle elements. Feels like a classic but also feels fresh and exciting. Hoping for a sequel on the Switch!

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

This product was recommended by Shaun Savage from Try Hard Guides

One of the best Nintendo Wii U games has to be The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. This is an upgrade to the classic GameCube Wind Waker experience, but due to the timelessness of the original, there wasn’t need for much change. The game takes you on an epic adventure where you cross the open sea exploring islands and attempting to trackdown Link’s kidnapped sister. While this is a pretty large departure from most Zelda games, long-time players of the franchise will still find the elements they have loved from the franchise in the past.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

This product was recommended by Dennis Quigley from Deranged Turtle Games

Craft, kill, climb, do physics things. Insanely fun and immersive. If you haven’t heard already just go buy the game… in the least you’ll be able to be a cool kid now.

Super Smash Bros.

This product was recommended by Dennis Quigley from Deranged Turtle Games

Beat up on the digital manifestations of your childhood self, and those of your friends too!

Mario Kart 8

This product was recommended by Dennis Quigley from Deranged Turtle Games

It kind of feels more like longboarding than karting, but hey I like them both. Blue spiked shell, anyone?

Super Mario Maker

This product was recommended by Dennis Quigley from Deranged Turtle Games

Platformer aficionado? This one has nearless endless content with new content being produced daily by an active community of fans, developers, and masochistic a-holes.


This product was recommended by Harriet Chan from CocoFinder

Splatoon is another great Wii Y game, with much emphasis on online play. In 2015v, this game introduced a new third-person shooter from the Nintendo franchise. The features are kid-friendly, with competing teams shooting colorful ink at each other based on different game modes, such as SplatZone, Tower Control, and Turf War. Some of its characters were also included in Super Smash Bros and Maria Kart 8 Deluxe rosters.

Beyonetta 2

This product was recommended by Paul Smith from WoodWorkerMagic

A fantastic game, very similar style to the first one in my opinion. It continues with Platinum’s classic action style of gameplay, with a great battle theme. Like the first game it is not the longest game in the world (about 7-9 hours) but for a game of this quality I don’t think this is a bad thing. Definitely worth the money, especially considering it is one of the cheaper Wii U games.

Pokkén Tournament DX

This product was recommended by Arshad Saqib from techinbucket

There are a lot of similarities between Pokken and the king of fighters, but it’s really just scratching the surface. It’s a great fighting game that fails to find its footing in regards to being a substantial side dish. The basics are all there: there are rounds, you’re paired up with an opponent and your goal is to whittle down their health from 100% to 0%. You do this by attacking them until they have at least 15 points. As you progress round after round, doing combos becomes increasingly difficult as their damage increases slowly based on how much you’ve been attacking them.

Xenoblade Chronicles X

This product was recommended by Demi Yilmaz from Colonist

Perhaps one of the best-looking games of its time, Xenoblade Chronicles X is an absolute treat for anyone with a Wii U. It’s a massive open-world JRPG style game with an immersive story that unravels in the most artistic way. The content is pretty much endless and you’ll never run out of places to explore. Given its sheer vastness, this is a game that requires effort and patience but one that rewards you with epic gameplay in return.


This product was recommended by Ahmed Mir from Sip Coffee House

Who doesn’t like a Zombie game? As an avid Wii fan, this game has been one of my instant stress relievers. Imagining what you will do should a zombie virus hit your city is one of the most mind-blowing games that will boggle you and keep you entertained at the same time. While it is a bit brutal and nasty, there’s no way this game will bore you, given the backstory that truly is engaging, and the shambling corpse that you’ll probably blow or get you to restart the game over again. This is definitely the scariest yet most fun Wii U game you can play either with family members or friends.

WB Games Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition

This product was recommended by Daniela Sawyer from FindPeopleFast

Wii game with the storyline of batman will undoubtedly give a fantastic gaming experience to all the gamers. Here gamers can experience freeflow combats, new gadgets with new functionality, and a great storyline. This game has different levels with different levels of difficulty, epic encounter sequence with villains, and batman psychology. This game is full of action and thrill.
