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.

Take it from me, this is definitely the best Wii U game and so far it's my favorite Video game of all time in general! I own New Super Mario bros. U, Super Smash bros. for Wii U, Mario Kart 8,and Nintendo Land so I'm pretty sure I've played all of the good games except for Super Mario Maker. I am, however, looking forward to Super Mario Odyssey and it looks so cool, that I think it may becme my new favorite!

They finally made just another Mario platformer full of wonder, creativity, and awesomeness! There are finally original levels, bosses, and power-ups! Also so much content to explore, especially if you want to 100% the game (I almost did). There is a good difficultly level, some very challenging levels but not impossible to play. Love I!

Well, Princess Peach looked slightly tough in this game. Also, she needs to be stripped in this game. Even if Princess Peach did wash her private parts (and even her thigh gaps), they will always be smelly and thus stink like dead fish and poop! Same goes with Princess Daisy and Rosalina.

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

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.

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.

Wha... even if I have some major flaws (such as the entitlement of this game, Princess Daisy not replacing Princess Peach, Pac-Man not having his Debi Derryberry/Chris Brown voice, the Sonic Heroes theme song and even the lack of Adventure Mode) with this silly game, it deserves the top 1 spot. I will give this game 10/10 stars.

Mario Kart 8 Mario Kart 8 Product Image

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!

This is a top notch game. My dad loves it my mom loves it my brother likes it, and I LOVE IT. This game should be number 1. I don't really know why Super mario 3D World topped it because there's nothing bad at all about this game. I think it's the best WII U game and the BEST video game EVER in the world the only thing that I could due without is everybodys favourite Cheese Land I just think nintendo went crazy with the dairy. 100 percent out of 5

Ok this should not be five, this defiantly should be #1. I can't believe games like New Super Mario Bros. U is #1. This game has a large variety of characters, great maps,and overall is just really fun to play. I get more pleaser from getting first in a race than jumping on a goomba's head in New Super Mario Bros. U. This is an obvious for 1st.

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

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

New Super Mario Bros. you gets a 5/10 score.

Super Mario 3D World gets a 6/10 score.

Nintendo Land gets 7/10 stars.

Super Smash Bros. 4 (Wii you version) gets 10/10 stars.

Mario Kart 8 gets 7/10 stars.

Scribblenauts Unlimited gets 5/10 stars.

Pikmin 3 gets 7/10 stars.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II gets 8/10 stars.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD gets 8/10 stars.

ZombiU gets 9/10 stars.

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?

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.

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.

Best multiplayer game ever created! I love sneaking around and grabbing everyone as a ghost! And the pikmin one really surprised me, it's class! All of the other games rule too. It is the only Wii you game I own at the mo but its still epic!

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.

The octopus dance only has five stages! There should be at least 15 stages for octopus dance. If you played Mario chase ore Luigi's Ghost Mansion you have to agree with me that this is what makes the game the best!

Super Mario Maker Super Mario Maker Product Image

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.

This has to be number one. It's the best game yet! Creating your own levels and playing other people's, what else could you ask for? This game never ends! (Unless youve reached the maximum spaces for levels and played everyones levels and noones making more, but that would take more than a century! ) this game is the best!

Very fun game gives you the ability to create and play other peoples Mario levels based off of four different Mario engines, including Mario 1, Mario 3, Mario world, and Mario u!

This is a Mario game, there you can use our fantasy. You can make levels! I can make levels! You can play every levels and I can play every levels! This is awesome.

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

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!

When I played the demo in walmart I was like, woh! This. is. awesome! Even though it was made the same reason they made cave story 3d, it is my seconf favorite Zelda game. first being Zelda wii U. I can't wait for it to come out!

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

I wasn't a big fan of the Gamecube version but the Wii U version fixed all the flaws.

Splatoon Splatoon Product Image

Splatoon has A LOT of problems people who don't play other turf war/tps games wont get such as:
No voice Chat
Motion controls default
Unskippable cutscenes
Not enough stages
Not enough weapons
Annoying characters
Not as stellar gameplay
Not enough gameplay modes
No way to quit lobbies
To way to join lobbies with your friends
Choppy action
Not to mention its basically Jet Set Radio except squids.

When I got Splatoon on release day I was100% thoroughly disappointed. This game has no place on this list.

This game is so fun! It did get a lot of attention but that this is not on the real list is insane. The top ten list is good but why is Call of Duty and scribblenauits in the top ten? Those are good but clones. SPLATOON had great controls, amazing online and gameplay. There are negatives but I still love SPLATOON.

Wow, 15? This game is Nintendo in one game! And its as fun as Nintendo Land! The style of it is so cute like Kirby, Pikachu, and Pikmen combined, the lobby is interactive like so many other games, and it has the best online multiplayer I've ever seen! Plus, the story mode is so fun. This is up there in my favorite games!

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.

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.

So, take a formula that's near and dear to our hearts, add tons of new features and Nintendo Characters, and make it all HD and Voila~! You have Scribblenauts Unlimited. The object editor is a great feature (considering that now you can LITERALLY make anything)! A word of advice though, buy the Wii U version over the 3ds. There isn't an object editor and the controls are kinda slow on the 3ds, which honestly disappointed me. However, I'd give the Wii U version 9/10!

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.

This game is hilarious! I made everyone I see Nuclear and I make zombies and stuff!
I know, I'm supposed to help people (which I occasionally do) but some people I hate have to be gone.

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

Wait, what is that boxart in the picture? I have the Wii U version and it looks way different!

The Contenders

Rayman Legends Rayman Legends Product Image

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!

Innovative use of the Gamepad, clever level design, amazing animations, great music, what else can I say about this one?

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

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.

The Donkey Kong Country Series has been a staple in Nintendo's roster right with Zelda and Mario. From the original SNES Trilogy that hit perfection with Diddy Kong's Quest to the outstanding reboot DKC Returns. Donkey Country Tropical Freeze did what DKC2 did for DKC1. It transformed amazing into perfection. Beautiful Music, Graphics, Platforming, Engagement, Enviroments, Progression, and Boss Battles.
10/10. One of the greatest 2D Platformers of all time.

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

This is one of the best platformers of all time. Wonderful graphics and music plus some actual challenge make this better than any recent 2D Mario game.

Pikmin 3 Pikmin 3 Product Image

This game is wonderful, it takes all the elements you know and love about the other installments and adds a ton more content as well as heavily improved graphics.

This game allows you to separate pikmin into teams and have them separately work while you do something else.

Haven't quite mastered it yet, but it's a great improvement to help save on time.

New controls take a little getting used to but work well, I might have to go get a nunchuk and Wii remote, because it's kind of frustrating how difficult it is to draw on the Wii U pad screen and double tap on the screen to throw pikmin, maybe there is a way around this, but it is cumbersome, other than that, very great so far.

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?

I have pikmin 2 for the wii. Now that you can play the third one on the wii u, you can play with the gamepad. Awesome!

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

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.

So adorable I have a wooly yoshi and it is so cute and worth the 17 dollars

So adorable, I play this all the time

It's a great 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.

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

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

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

Call of duty black ops 2 awesome then all, we gonna find the way out, the guns is powerful and the quallity is good and nice, the game can play with mode, example;zombie mode and internet. Ps, the game just for to the professional and for the extremlly cheater

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

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

I was excited to see a Nintendo list, and then this piece of crap comes up

Of Course, You Had Mario in your username so I knew you were going to be negative about call of duty, no offense, but is it really necessary to?

Mario Party 10 Mario Party 10 Product Image

So underrated! It's not the best of the series, I know, with the lack of a story mode, only five boards and another lack of side stuff, but for what it is, it's not a bad game. The car, is only hated because it's not like the classics (even though it's actually quite fun on its own). It has some amazing boss fights and interesting minigames. The bowser party mode..., is a unbalanced, true, but it's still fun at times. And everyone hates amiibo party but lemme' tell that's exactly the state Mario Party was in before 9 because they had run out of more ideas (what did 8 have that made it unique from 7 for example?)

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

This is a good game, just because of bowser

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

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.

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

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

Good thing it turned out to be a good sonic racing game, the first sonic racing gmae, Sonic R, was awful

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

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

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

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

Kids Grand Theft Auto with cops

You get to go undercover

Grand Theft Auto PG rated version! Buy this game!

Game & Wario

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

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

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

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

Best fighting game of all time...

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

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.

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!

This looks good, There should Assassin's creed on the switch

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
