Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon
For the first time in HD, Nintendo's Mario Kart franchise comes to the Wii U console, introducing new racing circuit designs and antigravity karts that will have players driving upside down.
Splatter enemies and claim your turf as the ink-spewing, squid-like characters called Inklings in Nintendo's new third-person action shooter game exclusively on Wii U.
Splatter as much turf as you can
Covering more territory with ink unlocks powered-up super weapons that can be used to attack rivals or cover more turf. See where you've splattered—and what to cover next—on the Wii U GamePad controller's screen.
Pick the right moment to strike
Transform into a squid to hide in your own ink, climb up walls, and move more quickly. Use ink blasters, ink bombs, ink rollers, and squid power to cover the most territory.
Race across the world
Turn your world upside down with Mario Kart 8! Engage antigravity mode and race up, down and all around amazing courses, competing against other players whether they’re in the same room or on the other side of the world!

On the positive side I found the console easy to set up and the interface simple and easily familiar to use for anyone who's ever owned a Wii. The tablet/ controller is lightweight and the screen is bright and clear. The games I've purchased which includes mario kart and 3d world are visually bright and colourful and the gameplay is responsive via the tablet. It's truly a shame that the Wii U never captured the publics attention as it's a really good family oriented console
On the down side the console is rather pricey for it's power. Also by the time you add on extra costs such as motion sensors, wii motes and nun chucks the cost can really start to pinch although you can get unofficial brands for alot cheaper than the official ones but if you read the reviews for those there seems to be a higher risk of these controllers being less responsive than the branded nintendo ones. Another problem with the Wii U is that it seems a little messy with multiple wires coming from the machine including the power brick, motion sensor bar and tablet so it's a lot messier looking on my T.V stand compared to my Playstion 4. Over all a good if somewhat underrated console and
With the new nintendo Switch being released soon it may be worth investing in a Wii U for a bargain price.
When playing games I was a little disappointed with the Nintendo eShop - topping up a balance rather than just charging my credit card for purchases - probably to avoid a merchant fee for each transaction. I'm old school - I hunt down games at High Street stores instead of downloading them. Plus, with only 8GB memory on this console - I wasn't going to spend more on memory in the bundle option - it wouldn't be long before I'd need an external hard drive just for my games.
Overall, does what it says on the tin. It's a Games Console, nothing more.
The console is just like the other Premium Wii Us except for the Zelda-themed Gamepad which looks very nice indeed. The Gamepad looks a bit clumsy but feels very comfortable when held and the touchscreen is an invaluable input method for games and especially Miiverse. It enables fairly rapid typing and doodling to communicate with others on Nintendo's social network, Miiverse. These are the two aspects of the Wii U that have most impressed me and offer an experience you cannot replicate on any other console. Miiverse is great fun and enables you to connect with others even in wholly single-player experiences. You can share screenshots, tips and hints and your own experiences. You can ask for help and provide it.
In short, I am surprised by how good a console the Wii U is. I expected to enjoy Zelda and a few other exclusive but I can see this becoming my primary console as I love the Gamepad and Miiverse and there are plenty of quality games already released and many more to come this year and next. The Wii U is also fully backward-compatible with the Wii which has a huge library of brilliant and quirky games like Mario Galaxy, Okami, Metroid Prime Trilogy, Fire Emblem, Zelda: Skyward Sword, Trauma Center, Xenoblade Chronicles and many more. Most of the Wii peripheral are compatible and some (Wiimote Plus, Classic Controller) are used in many games.
The only criticisms I have so far relate to the lack of Dolby Digital or DTS. The Wii U only output LPCM 2.0 or 5.1 and unfortunately some amps and headphones (in my case) don't support this format. A modern amp will convert this output to the required format and pretty much everything will play LPCM 2.0 as basic stereo but there is no Dolby Digital in games or Netflix. I also have had some trouble with the WiFi connection but this could very well just be an issue with a very poor WiFi router. The battery life of the Gamepad is also fairly short (2-3 hours) but the AC Adaptor is quite long so it's not such an issue. You can buy an improved battery too if you really need it or the Wii U Pro Controller which has a battery life of 80 hours or so but I find the Gamepad features so useful that I would only buy a Pro Controller for multiplayer.
