4 out of 5 eggsLove the system!

Pros: Gamepad is surprisingly comfortable
Gamepad screen incorporates some nice features
Nintendo exclusive games are great
Backwards compatibility with Wii games and controllers saves me some money

Cons: Comparatively weak hardware for current gen consoles
Many 3rd party games unavailable
3rd party games that are on the system are often scaled down versions

Other Thoughts: First, the good: the gamepad is really nice. It adds some cool functionality to a lot of games (touchscreen very intuitive for managing inventory), and the ability to play on the gamepad screen while the tv is in use is a great feature. Also, the gamepad is surprisingly comfortable; looking at it, I thought it would be terrible for extended use, but I have been pleasantly surprised. The backwards compatibility with wii games and controllers is a bonus. Finally, nintendo exclusive games are the reason you would buy this console. Zelda, mario, mario-kart, smash bros are all out or coming soon. There are some other nice exclusives like zombie u and nintendo land, which are both quite enjoyable.

Now, the bad: hardware on the wii u is severely lacking compared to ps4 and xbox one (although it is $100-200 cheaper than those consoles). This means many 3rd party games don't make it to the wii u, and those that do are often downscaled versions; for example, sniper elite v2 on the wii u removed multiplayer and dlc isn't available. So, if you only get one console, it should not be the wii u unless the nintendo exclusives are the games you care about most. I am lucky enough to have the ps4 and xbox one as well, so the wii u is only used for nintendo exclusives. In that role, it does quite well. However, if I could only have one system, it wouldn't be the wii u, because there are too many 3rd party games I want to play.

I absolutely love the wii u, so I don't want this to come off as a negative review. But, if you are looking at this system, it is important to know what you are getting. You aren't getting a graphics powerhouse, and you aren't getting a whole lot of 3rd party support. If you love nintendo games, then those limitations aren't real problems, and you will love the system. If you aren't crazy about nintendo games, then you would be better off getting a different console, where 3rd party support is better, resulting in a wider selection of games. You do save $100 with the wii u, but that is less than one game and one extra controller will cost you, so it is worth considering putting some extra money towards another console if you aren't a big mario or zelda fan.

Summary: gamepad is great, backwards compatibility with wii software and hardware is great, and nintendo exclusives are a blast. If you can only get one console, the wii u should be your choice only if nintendo exclusives are the games you are most interested in, or else the lack of 3rd party support could leave you disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsA winner!

Pros: Creatively interactive games
Great WiiU operating system
Challenging games

Cons: Long time between AAA Nintendo titles

Other Thoughts: This system is awesome. I chose it over the PS4 and Xbox One because I am such a huge fan of Zelda games. I was very pleasantly surprised by Super Mario Brothers Wii U. It's the 3rd version of the game from the DS and Wii, but the addition of the Wii Pad deity mode where you manipulate the levels while other players run around is amazing.

5 out of 5 eggsWii U

Pros: Fun games, great price for system bundled with 2 games. Wii u game pad is nice and innovative, reminds me of an updated version of where sega was headed with the dreamcast controller.

Cons: Not a whole lot of third party titles, hopefully Nintendo can get more developers on board.

5 out of 5 eggsGaming At It's Finest For Core & Casual Alike

Pros: The best feature of the Wii U is the dual-screen gameplay. You'll use the gamepad for scanning objects, on-the-fly inventory management, maps, asymetrical multiplayer (one player used gamepad, other uses TV), dual-screen puzzles, and much more.

The Wii U also boasts free online, so you won't have to worry about paying a subscription fee. The console is backwards compatible with Wii games too, so you can sell your Wii and play all those games on your new console. Wii system transfers are also allowed.

Another one of the Wii U's greatest strengths is its' multiple controller options (Gamepad, Pro Controller, Wiimote/Nunchuk, Wii Controller Pro). Most games allow for any one of these input devices, so you can play the way YOU like to play. The wide array of compatible controllers also allows for varied gameplay. Whether it's dual-screen gaming on the Gamepad in Wonderful 101, motion gaming with the Wiimote in Pikmin 3, or just a good ol' Pro Controller for New Super Mario Bros U, you'll find it all on Wii U.

Nintendo has also created a unique online social integration via Miiverse, which is, to put it in layman's terms, is a Facebook for Wii U owners. Miiverse allows you to send friend requests, post, comment, draw, write, post screenshots, and join communities. It is by far one of the Wii U's greatest attributes.

The consoel comes with 32GB of built in flash memory, but the console provides for expandable memory via external hard drives up to 2TB.

The eShop allows gamers to browse through a vast selection of indie and retail titles, as well as Virtual Console back-catalogue games from prior Nintendo systems. You will also have access to streaming media (Netflix, Hulu, Youtube etc).

During setup the console will ask for the brand of your TV and cable box, and will automatically sync the Gamepad with those devices based on which brand you select. You can then turn your TV and cable box on and off through the Gamepad, as well as change TV inputs, access the Guide Channel, and change volume and channels, even when the Wii U console is turned off.

However, the Wii U's very best appeal comes from its' top-notch library of critically acclaimed titles. There was a 6 month drought of games after the Wii U's launch in 2012, but ever since then Nintendo has blanket bombed the console with award-winning titles. Whether it's Nintendo games like Pikmin 3, Zelda Windwaker HD, Super Mario 3D World and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, or 3rd party titles like Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Deus Ex Human Revolution, Assassin's Creed 4 or Call of Duty Ghosts, the Wii U has it all.

I've been gaming for over 20 years, and have owned every single console ever made by Nintendo and Sony, including the recently released PS4. And I stand by my word that the Wii U is the finest video game console I've ever owned. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Cons: At the time of writing, there is a relatively small VC selection from Nintendo, though it should be noted that Nintendo will fill out the selection of games over time, up to and including Gamecube games. There is also no party chat feature on Wii U, so you'll have to rely on the chat built into each game (which means no cross-game chat while playing different games unfortunately). There are several games which include chat, however, with examples such as Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Call of Duty Black Ops 2/Call of Duty Ghosts.

Compared to the 3rd party consoles of Sony and Microsoft, there is relatively limited 3rd party support by way of multiplats. Having said that, the Wii U has received more meaningful 3rd party support in just its' first year than the Nintendo 64, Gamecube or Wii received their entire lifespans. Nintendo consoles have always primarily consisted of top-notch exclusives with minimal AAA multiplats. Compared to the PS3/PS4 or 360/X1, the Wii U will have a very thin allotment of 3rd party titles. However, for being a Nintendo console, the Wii U actually has an astonishing assortment of 3rd party ports.

Of course, no one buys a Nintendo console for multiplats anyways- they buy it for the award-winning exclusive Nintendo games, so this shouldn't be an issue for most people.

Other Thoughts: I'm very glad I bought a Wii U. The exclusive Nintendo games are some of the funnest I've ever played in my life. Nintendo has REALLY stepped up their game from the days of the Wii. Nearly every single game Nintendo releases turns out to be an epic, unforgettable experience- and with games like Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros 4, Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, Monolith Soft's X, Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem and a new Zelda U all hitting the console over the course of the next year or so, it's only going to get better. I love my 3DS, PS4 and PS Vita, but when stacked against the Wii U, they just don't seem to cut it.

5 out of 5 eggsThe current generation system to buy

Pros: The Wii U is all about having fun. Nintendo's 1st party games are great. A good selection of games that is only getting better. The gamepad is a neat addition.

Cons: Not as much raw horsepower as the Xbox one or PS4.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my kids and they absolutely love it. It turns out that everyone in the house is enjoying this neat little system.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: pretty

Cons: This unit would not read Wii U or Wii disks out of the box. I understand failures and my kids were unfortunate to receive a broken Christmas gift, but Nintendo support FAILS. I can't get them on the phone. The support site tree for this issue doesn't get me to the RMA process. Finally RMA through NewEgg and eating the shipping cost for a DOA failure.

Pros: Both games are on one disk! Great value! Best Wii U Deluxe bundle on the market.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this bundle if you need to buy a Wii U.

4 out of 5 eggsOld School gamer on the fence? What you need to know.

Pros: PROS:

$100 less than its closest 8th generation competitor.

Surprisingly sturdy and comfortable tablet Gamepad.
Intuitive and inviting design encouraged me to explore all it had to offer.

Included game is great fun. Classic Mario platforming that ramps up to a surpisingly stiff challenge, unlike some recent Mario outings. Lots of additional content and a lengthy experience for what it is.

400+ classic NES, SNES, Master System, Genesis, N64, TurboGrafx, Neo Geo, and arcade games via Wii Mode's Virtual Console (and a spectacular handful of Virtual Console iterations made specifically for Wii U, including the bar none best ports of Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario World I've ever played.) Ability to map controls for the Wii U VC ports is awesome.

Traditionally controlled games work more or less as well as they could on any contemporary, industry standard, dual analog controller, unlike on Wii.

Wii backward compatibility means Wii and Wii VC games are now 480p upscaled to your display's resolution. Since it's a minimal upscale compared to plugging an old console into an HDTV, the upscale bluring is also minimal, resulting in extremely sharp (comparatively speaking) Wii games and classic ports.

Vibrant, friendly online communities to choose between.

Enhanced editions of previous gen games that are in many cases the definitive versions. (If you haven't played them, this is probably the place to do it.)

Great stop gap system that looks better than 360 and PS3 if you're holding out on buying a PS4 and/or Xbox One.

Demos for many Wii U games. Trailers for nearly all Virtual Console games.

Playing a game on the tablet/Gamepad instead of the TV feels like playing HD games on the most powerful Nintendo handheld ever made.

Cons: CONS:

Idiosyncratic peripheral requirements for Wii Mode Virtual Console games and local multiplayer.

Equally idiosyncratic separation of Wii Points in the Wii Mode eShop, and money in your Wii U eShop. (They are not interchangeable.)

Inability to plug the controllers - any of them - directly into the system (for charging, or for any reason; they are fully wireless.) A charger is included for the Wii U tablet/Gamepad, but you will need batteries and a charger if you buy a Wii Remote controller.

Limited storage capacity. On the same note...

Baffling (and, AGAIN, totally idiosyncratic... Nintendo, what is your deal sometimes? I swear...) limitation on Wii Mode Virtual Console game storage means you will need SD cards if you plan to buy a lot of them. (External HDDs are supported by Wii U... but not for storing Wii Mode Virtual Console games. GO FIGURE!)

Inability to share downloaded games stored on SD cards between systems or users.

Spotty in-game voice chat support. Some games have it, while some do not. There is no cross-game voice chat. A Nintendo licensed headset is required for in-game voice chat (unlike out-of-game Wii U voice and video chat, which simply uses the mic on the tablet/Gamepad.)

MiiVerse functionality is fun and friendly, but its implementation (or presence at all) varies by game.

Rather long load times both in games and between menus (though not unbearable... I survived Morrowind on the original Xbox. I can survive this.)

Poor third party game selection (though some third party multiplats show up in arguably their very best incarnations on Wii U. I would cite Deus Ex: Human Revolution The Director's Cut, which I own and am loving, as one such example.)

Analog stick spacing takes some getting used to.

Having to research which controller interface (of the more than four Wii U supports) a given game uses before considering a purchase. (Not a problem if you're comfortable with all of them, obviously. I'm still resistant to motion control though personally.)

Unless a game allowed controller mapping in its original incarnation, Wii Mode VC games do not allow controller mapping. (A real issue in some games, such as Super Mario Bros. 3, given the differences between the original controllers and the Wii Classic controller. Note that SMB3 is scheduled to show up in a better, fully mappable Wii U port sometime soon, however. With more on the way.)

Will never compete graphically with other 8th gen consoles. (Though, as stated, it does outperform 360 and PS3.)

Grouping with and playing with others in online games is still a less seamless experience than on other platformers... but it does work, in those games which support it. (Mario Kart, coming in 2014, should be a lot of fun for instance.)

Other Thoughts: I'm a lifelong gamer since the early 80s. I've loved Nintendo forever. They lost me with Wii, however. The combination of inferior hardware power and motion control (which I continue to detest personally) was simply too much for me to stomach. With Wii U I was very cautious. I did not want a repeat of that experience.

Nevertheless, with the increasing proliferation of what I regard as anti-consumer practices within the video game industry, I decided to give the system a shot. I did so quite warily... and have been pleasantly surprised.

The tablet controller (Gamepad) feels heavier and more robust than anticipated. Games feel great. The games I've played have zero intrusive second screen or motion control. Some games will use the Wii remote entirely instead, but you can research and avoid those if you so desire.

Everything works well. There's a long initial system update and the load times are quite lengthy. But everything is pleasant, attractive, and intuitive. A lot like 3DS, but more powerful, more comprehensive, and bigger.

One reason I bought the system is the Virtual Console. There are a handful made for Wii U specifically. They look beautiful and are among the best ports of some great classics I've ever seen or played. They work great with Wii U gamepad. The vast hundreds-strong majority of Virtual Console games however are found in "Wii mode," These games require a Wii Classic controller (not to be confused with Wii U Pro controller.) Which in turn requires a Wii Remote as it does not have its own power source. Which in turn requires batteries, which must be charged. Which means buying a charger.

Further, you can only store up to 512MB of Wii Mode VC games, and external HDDs cannot be used to store them. You must purchase compatible SD cards. Compatible in this case means up to 32GB and preferably confirmed to work with the system or pre-formatted for it (not all SD cards are guaranteed to work.)

This is an annoying and unnecessary design decision on Nintendo's part, but once you have everythig in hand it works great. The Wii Classic controller is among the best controllers I've held since Nintendo's classics. Ports play beautifully on it. I recommend the latest Motion Plus Wii Remote if you buy a Wii-mote.

You can link your Wii U and 3DS Nintendo Network IDs. Unfortunately, Wii Points (used for buying Wii Virtual Console games and other Wii eShop products) are distinct from money in your Wii U & 3DS eshop account. This means you can put a lot of money into the Wii U eShop, thinking it'll apply to Wii's Virtual console purchases as well, only to find that it doesn't.

The system will never visually compete with PS4 or Xbox One. (Let alone PC.) But it is 1080p via HDMI, and if you just want a nice stop gap system that'll run multiplats prettier than 360 or PS3, if you know you love Nintendo's IPs and games, and if you want a great retro alternative to buying old systems, you may find as I did that the Wii U is a fanta

5 out of 5 eggsBuy a Wii U and make your own PC

Pros: I don't care about Xbox and PS4 graphics since my PC is already 3 times+ more powerful than either of them.

However my PC cannot play Mario or Zelda.

Nuff said.

Cons: you know, almost no game

Other Thoughts: You only buy if you like Nintendo's exclusive cause let's face it, they scr**ed up big time with 3rd party publishers.
But most BIG GAMES are coming to the PC anyway now. You can buy an Xbox controller or PS4 controller for the PC.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Just bought this bundle for my brothers for christmas. I currently have the wind waker bundle and I absolutely love my WiiU. I really like using the gamepad to play video games when my wife wants the TV.

Cons: The operating system sometimes freezes, but Nintendo is working on it. This is a problem you are going to have the first year a new console is out. Software is lacking, but it's titles are currently better than the PS4/Xbox one.

Other Thoughts: I think this is a wonderful system and I am a hardcore gamer. I love the gamepad while playing WindWaker HD which has the map and items on the 2nd screen. I would recommend this system to anyone and hardcore gamers would be better off to get the WiiU now and wait a year on a PS4/Xbox1.
