5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeds our expectations, 29 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Nintendo Wii U Console, 32GB Premium Pack with Rayman Legends And LEGO City Undercover - Black (Console)
My sons have been putting aside little bits of money ever since they heard about the Wii U, and we finally got the Lego City Undercover premium pack, with Rayman Legends. The graphics are a lot better than the old Wii, and the two games this comes with are both a lot of fun.

As many others have said, Lego City Undercover seems to be the best Lego game yet. Not every game makes much use of the gamepad screen, but Lego City has a few good uses. It has a map and a video communicator with the police base. It even has a scanning option which is fantastic: when you look at the gamepad you see through all the buildings around you. When you move the gamepad around, the view moves as you would expect it to. Meanwhile, your figure on the screen is holding his own gamepad and mirroring your movements.

As this is a premium pack, it comes with a nice charging stand for the gamepad. There have been a lot of complaints online about the short life of the battery on the gamepad, but if you dock it whenever you're not using it, there seems to be no problem. You can also play with it plugged in, if you plan to play more than 3 hours at a time. As far as the long-term life of the battery, there is nothing wrong with recharging it when it's half empty. Also, if you reduce the brightness of the gamepad a notch or two, it will extend the time between charges.

I am very pleased to be able to use Netflix and Love Film through the Wii U, because it is HDMI so it looks much better than it did on the old Wii.

Another feature of the gamepad is the ability to play games while someone else watches TV. My son has played Rayman Legends this way a few times, and found it to be quite fun. You still have to be within range of the console, but it allows for more sharing of the TV.

There is a lot still to explore, such as going on the Nintendo Network, using the gamepad as a TV remote, etc. But so far, everything has exceeded our expectations.
