Best Wii U Games

The Top Ten

Super Mario 3D World Super Mario 3D World Product Image

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.

Not another peach hater.
Peach was never bossy and pathetic. Grow up. - TeamRocket747

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!

This is the game that made me buy Wii U... I've got great memories playing it with my siblings.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Product Image

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.

SUPER SMASH BROS FOR WIIU AND 3DS IS THE BEST GAME EVER BECAUSE OF THE CHARACTERS, STAGES, POWERUPS AND I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IT'S NOT NUMBER 1!

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.

Mario Kart 8 Mario Kart 8 Product Image

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

It's a shame that the Wii U sold so bad considering how many fantastic game there are for it. That being said, I was lucky enough to live with a Nintendo fanatic for the time the system was still in it's life span. Mario Kart 8 was fantastic and a true embodiment of taking the best aspects of all the games in it's series throughout the year to make this. While smash bros is always fun and games like Bayonetta 2, Pikmin 3, The legend of Zelda remasters and the super mario titles were all great, I think this is by far the best.

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!

New Super Mario Bros. U New Super Mario Bros. U Product Image

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.

My favorite 2D Mario game and 2nd favorite main Mario game. Has nice additions to the worlds, has the Super Acorn power up, has a great Bowser fight, and beautiful imagery

I love super Mario bros

I bought this with new super luigi bros u the other day haven't played it yet

Nintendo Land Nintendo Land Product Image

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

I love this game play the sammus one and the boo one at a sleep over and when ever someone dies in the boo one everyone scream I was playing it at 3:00 in the morning with my friends a we screamed so loud so I suggest the game for a sleepover

The most original game yet on the Wii U. Really shows what the Wii you is capable of, and it's a ton of fun. I don't actually have a Wii U, but I've played this at my friend's house and it's the one game that I really feel I want.

Super Mario Maker Super Mario Maker Product Image

Making Mario levels is the best idea this should be number 2 (under super Mario 3d world)

Best Wii u game. I can see myself still playing this game 20 years from now

How this no number won? That games my favrite game and no what make it awesome? It UNLIMITED. Steel no good as the 2 one

It's a good game, being able to make my own Mario levels and all. But almost all maps on 100 Mario Challenge are not well made, and I need costumes for my map, so its just gotten boring. Give it more votes if you want, but I've just gotten bored of Super Mario Maker.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Product Image

I watched someody play this! Although toon link is not elf enouph for me, it looked really fun!

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!

I am still playing this game and I am having a blast the only problem is is that it is hard to find but a least they are making a nintendo selects edition for $20 so it will be easier to find now a must have

Splatoon Splatoon Product Image

Only number 25? Should be at least Top 10 because this game is crazy addicting and fun!

I'm not sure why this is number 19 so far. It is SO ADDICTING. I love it a lot. The characters are cute, there is an online gaming experience, a good story, and an awesome tutorial. This should be at least in the top 10. This is a really good game. I play it all the time.

This game is the ultimate multiplayer experience Wii U owners can get!

Plus, the story mode is also nice and fun even the game tugged as a multiplayer game.

So addictive buy this instant

Scribblenauts Unlimited Scribblenauts Unlimited Product Image

I so glad Scribblenauts has stayed up here in the top 10 after all these years. I do believe it is one of the best games on the system. It is great with a create an object tool, and the fun puzzle solving using a huge dictionary of words.

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!

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.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Nintendo did a great job with this one. From what I can tell, it's better on switch, but it's a solid wii u game!

It hasn't even come out, but I know it will be at least as good as Skyward Sword, if not better.

Not out. Yet. Looks amazing. Been saving up so that I can get it as soon as it comes out

My BFF has this game and it looks like so much fun!

The Contenders

Rayman Legends Rayman Legends Product Image

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

I never heard about rayman I only heard about it by this game and getting this was a great dissection the levels the music the characters there is so much a must have

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!

After playing this game, I became a big fan of Rayman.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Product Image

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.

This game is way better than Super Mario 3d World and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys platformers and more difficult games.

Great installment to the Donkey Kong Country series.

Why is this rated so low?!

Pikmin 3 Pikmin 3 Product Image

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

Yoshi's Wooly World Yoshi's Wooly World Product Image

Even though it's quite easy on the whole, the music, graphical style and level designs are absolutely beautiful. It also has a great balance between action and some interesting puzzle elements scattered here and there.

It's a great game

So adorable, I play this all the time

Super fun game

Sonic Lost World Sonic Lost World Product Image

I love this game. Screw all of the sonic fans who hate it because they are sonic fans. It's a great game, it is NOT a rip off of Galaxy, and it's really fun and uses the Wii U perfectly!

This game felt very awkward and took some time for me to get used to, but overall, it's a good game, all except for the snowball part. Things slow down big time there.

Taken a bit of time to get used to, with different level design, but really is a good game.

Its great its not a copy of super Mario galaxy

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Call of Duty: Black Ops II Product Image

Awesome game and black ops 2 is awesome on any game console. The game is the best game ever!

So good I just love playing it all the time

Nothing can compete with this games awesome multiplayer

It is quite an accomplishment... a Call of Duty game is good on a Nintendo console?

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Product Image

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

I do like Mario Kart 8, but I love this game more because of its speed. The plane flying took some time to get used to, though, but it's a really good game and very underrated.

Never seen this game before...think I might give it a try.

This game managed to put Mario kart into shame with five player mode,returning characters and cool tracks

ZombiU ZombiU Product Image

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

What no way no one has ever heard of this so you need to say something else.
Mario better than black opps?

Lego City: Undercover Lego City: Undercover Product Image

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

You get to go undercover

Kids Grand Theft Auto with cops

I hate this game

Game & Wario

Wish I had this game

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

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

New Super Luigi U New Super Luigi U Product Image

Better than Mario U (not that Mario U was that bad)! It was a cool idea and would not be good if it was the exact same thing as its Mario counterpart with slightly different levels, but it was innovative with the playstyle and gave short bursts of entertainment. It's not a masterpiece like the Mario RPG games for example (will love all those games till I die) but it is definitely fun and worth it!

Short time limit. I don't like this game as much as Super Mario Bros, but it is pretty fun, and challenging!

Great game I don't have it thought should be in the top ten with the other Mario games

On the WORST list to!

Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition Product Image

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...

Assassin's Creed III Assassin's Creed III Product Image

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.

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!

Mario Party 10 Mario Party 10 Product Image

Hopefully Daisy & Rosalina are in this game. And why is Princess Peach in this game? At least Mario is in it, but I don't get it. Princess Peach will not do well in Mario Party 10. She's just going to quit & hate to win & become the superstar. Mario Party stand since Mario Party 6!

The best Mario party with the ruined formula

Fun and amazing, but seriously no Dry Bones, ANYWHERE!

This is a good game, just because of bowser

Hyrule Warriors Hyrule Warriors Product Image

How is this not way higher up on this list?
This is hands down the best Dynasty Warriors game next to the Gundam Dynasty Warriors, who doesn't love killing waves and waves of enemies?
This game is far more entertaining than any stupid rehashed Call of Duty game, there is an actual history line and story to this game where as Call of Duty is the same game as the previous six Call of Duty games just with slight differences.
This should easily be up there above all Call of Duty games on this list.

It's the loveable characters of the Zelda universe in the best 'em up universe of the Dynasty Warriors. Not only is it the best crossover series to date, it is also one of the best games on the system.

This game is awesome! How is it down here!

Really unique Zelda game
