GamesMaster magazine has reviewed two games for the Wii U, providing us with the first insight of what might be worth picking up on the system’s launch day.
Nintendo Land received a score of 86%, and was described as “some of the most innovative, raucous and party-fuelling fun we’ve ever had with a console,” and “an essential purchase for party lovers.” It might not be a title that a “hardcore” gamer will want to spend a lot of time with, but if you have friends and family to game with, you pretty much need it.
New Super Mario Bros. U received a lower, but respectable score of 82%. According to the review, there’s a surprising amount of innovation in the later levels, although it still sounds very much like what you’d expect from a New Super Mario Bros. title for the most part. Even so, you probably won’t be disappointed with the purchase unless you’re extremely weary of the series.
It shouldn’t be a big wait before other reviews start rolling in, so it should be interesting to see what other outlets have to say about these titles.
