Best Wii U Games

The Top TenXW

1Super Mario 3D World

This game got so much good feedback from many game reviewers, it got 8's, 9's and 10's! There is so much good stuff about it and it's just very enjoyable. It's very creative and there's a lot of originality about it, yet there are bits you remembered from other games. Like The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, it's absolutely fantastic yet for some reason it doesn't sell as well as other games.
As for New Super Mario Bros U, that should be 5 or something, it's pretty much the same as New Super Mario Bros Wii and 2, New Super Mario Bros DS was the only original one.

This is one of the best Mario games created. Trumps all four New Super Mario Bros games, defeats its predecessor and 3D Land and beats Sunshine, is better than Super Mario Bros 2 on NES, and is on the same level as the original Galaxy (64 and Galaxy 2 are better though)

Great Game! Better than Super Mario Bros U!

Good game style!

2New Super Mario Bros. U

What more can I say about Mario? He's an icon in video games and even today, his games still withstand the test of time. That's pretty much all I gotta say. Long live the plumber.

This game sucks! I can't even beat level 1 is embarrassing! I don't want this game if I have a Wii U! I want Super Smash Bros. Wii U if I have one! Smash is the best game ever created! Sakurai is awesome!

You need to practice at it you can't beat level one because you haven't practiced! Try it and you will love it plus how could you hate it? - RockStarr

No game can beat the awesomest!

Quite dull, to be honest.

3Nintendo Land

Nintendo Land is the only Wii you game I've got at the moment. The variety is astounding; being able to go from running around shooting at enemies in Metroid Blast to slicing through enemies with my sword in TLoZ: Battle Quest, to defeating a ghost in Luigi's Ghost Mansion, while being able to play many of the attractions solo or with up to 4 friends is amazing.

Nintendo land is awesome enough said

It is awesome! I have almost all of these game and this one is the best!

It needed more games and Pro Controller support.

4Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

There is no doubting that this is by far the best game on the Wii U right now. This game includes the best character roster, an endless supply of game modes, beautiful stages, and 8-player smash. The gameplay in this game has been totally perfected, as they have put together everything we love about battling and removed everything we hated about it. There is literally no way they could've made this game better than it is. If you have a Wii U, this is the one game you must have above all others. One of the greatest multiplayer experiences ever and one of the best games ever!

This is the best game for Wii U. It brings up to 8 friends to play together in one room. Isn't that better than playing strangers online? With 8 possible players, no one is left out. Outstanding gameplay that has been improved over the course of 15, with a huge roster of nothing but the biggest video game icons... and Wii Fit Trainer... How can you go wrong? This game is simply amazing.

I LOVE Smash Bros, don't get me wrong, but please don't hate me-I think it's a bit overrated. I mean, it's a great concept and loads of fun to play, but it's not that sophisticated and some people take it too seriously! I also never got the love for characters like Shulk, Roy, Ike, etc. And always preferred the selection from Mario, Zelda, and other franchises that had characters in the game originally. I just want to have a great time playing the game and other Wii U games without having to think about this one too much. It's the best competitive, non-serious Nintendo game, but not as good as some actual, adventurous masterpieces.

Like the fighting!

5Mario Kart 8

Mario Kart 8 is one of the best racing games I have ever played in my entire life. The smart and clever track design, and the ridiculous about of fun you will have with your friends makes this game a star in your Wii U library

Mario Kart 8 Should Be Number 1

I am so surprised this is five, but I am most surprised that Nintendo land got 3! Seriously, if you voted that you must not have tried any other Wii U games! It STINKS! Also, the number 1 game on the list is not that good if it is anything like the Wii version of new super Mario bros. one last thing. Wii sports Club should be in the top 10 seriously! Baseball and boxing are so much better than they were on the Wii. Tennis is amazing. This list is crazy why did you vote for this stuff!

If I get a Wii u this is 100 percent the first game I'm getting looks amazing

6Scribblenauts Unlimited

I'm a little confused as to how Pikmin 3 is on the list when it hasn't even been released yet(at #4, no less) but oh well. As for Scribblenauts Unlimited, it takes the original formula we loved from the first games and adds SO so much that it is a must have for any owner of the newest console.

Awesome game. Took the best feature from the original games and made it even better.

Best about you can create Link, Zelda, Ganon, Mario, Bowser, koopa, koopa troopa, bob-omb, Luigi, peach and Toad! - KriCket33554

Well, why Princess Peach instead of Princess Daisy and/or Rosalina?!

Neat game. It is awesome I guess.10-10

7The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

A classic adventure that caused a lot of controversy by the way it looks but I think it was a good risk for Nintendo and to me will always be one of the best Gamecube and an amazing addition to the Wii you

An amazing, underrated gem. I can not begin to fathom why people would choose New super Mario bros. you over this!

This game is just the best.

I never played the Wind Waker on the GameCube, so when I got the chance to play it for free in HD (Mario Kart 8 Deal), I quickly jumped onto the opportunity. And DAMN, is this fun! - PeterG99

8Pikmin 3

Well, I Remember this game in the Old Times... I think is like the old times And Better.

We have waited 9 YEARS. 9 LONG YEARS OF SUFFERING! And we finally get a third Pikmin game! And is nothing short of what I expected! Every gameplay aspect is amazing. Just one question: What are all the Call of Duty fanboys doing on this list?

BEAUTIFUL! This game is amazing!

This game is half shorter than Pikmin 2, but a good game - Super64Mario

9Rayman Legends

If you haven't played Rayman Legends, you're missing out!

Please help put this higher up! I've only ever played the demo at game stores and it's already one of my favourite ever games! The main reason why I want a Wii you so badly!

Why isn't this game Number 1 - Txdinoboy89

This game isn't #1. Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me.

The Contenders


I love this game. Turn off all of the lights and sit in the dark for hours. You will poo yourself on more than one occasion.

I like this game with the creepy atmosphere but it's a little bit hard to aim when you have a gun

Fast paced and scary. Didn't like the ending though

12Assassin's Creed III

It's games like this that make the new Wii you so much fun. I don't think anyone who's played the you version of this game who hasn't liked it. Certainly no one I've met. - BKAllmighty

Awesome game. Deserves a better place on the list.

Come on guys, this game is just god-damn awesome. Is the best in the series and the first for Nintendo

The first major Assassin's Creed release on Nintendo, cheers to Ubisoft!

13Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

Tropical Freeze needs more votes. This is a title that succeeds the art of platforming. It engages the players in its difficulty and not once did I falter in frustration. I just kept going! The story in its simplicity is told even more beautifully and it makes playing the game that much more engaging; almost interactive! I'm always gonna lean more on the Donkey Kong side of the Nintendo family feud.

Great installment to the Donkey Kong Country series.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze Has The Best Video Game Music! HANDS DOWN!

Why is this rated so low?!

14Game & Wario

This game is one of the worst Wii u games ever don't waste it money it's a trap!

Wish I had this game

This game looks so epic! But how can Skylanders Giants be on here? From what I know, that's for the wii, not wiiu

15Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition

I like this version better then the XBOX 360 version because They unknown less annoying and cheap and more fun and more and theirs a special mode that is awesome which is the Mushroom one and you can start with Miharu

It's a very interesting game with a lot of adventures, fighting and rocking, breaking.

Best fighting game of all time...

16Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

How could you hate crossovers & the teamwork of Super Monkey Ball characters with other crossover characters?!

17Sonic Lost World

I know it is not out yet but it looks amazing

Best wii you game ever, although that's not saying much because I've only played 4 other games - PPPPPPINGAS

18Lego City: Undercover

The best. When you finish the game you get to drive anywhere. This is Just like Grand Theft Auto - theDj7121

You get to go undercover

Kids Grand Theft Auto with cops

Amazing game

Out of the Wii U games that are currently out, this takes the cake. It's sort of like an awesome violent version of The Legend of Zelda. - mtndew37
