Best Wii U Games

The Top Ten

1 Super Mario 3D World

My wii u came with this game it cool - trains45

This is the game that made me buy Wii U... I've got great memories playing it with my siblings. - Friendshipper11

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)

2 Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

This game fun I played it lots on my wii u - trains45

I love all the epic battles!

I love the epic battles!

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!

3 Mario Kart 8

This game fun I played it a lot and online lots too - trains45

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.

4 New Super Mario Bros. U

I bought this with new super luigi bros u the other day haven't played it yet - trains45

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.

I love super Mario bros

Awesome my favorite Wii u game and my third favorite Mario Game! So what are you waiting for, go play this game.

5 Nintendo Land

Awesome but it needs to have a sequels to turn it into a successful franchise

It’s cute and funny and everything is made of fuzz

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.

One of the most underrated video games, ever

6 Super Mario Maker

This game fun I build few mario levels on it - trains45

Really unique game. Really fun. - MarioBros11

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

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.

7 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

Better than Breath of the Wild, I like the music and artstyle more - B1ueNew

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.

8 Splatoon

Best third person shooter on the wii u - B1ueNew

Same as mario kart 8, there's noobs online so why not play this? and I forgot the online is free too - B1ueNew

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

With S2 being released, I can safely say this game was unbalanced. It was a good test though. Still fun, but frustrating, too. - mattstat716

9 Scribblenauts Unlimited

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

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.

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

10 Donkey 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.

Why is this rated so low?!

I only beaten the first world it was fun I recommend it but I can't say much yet

The Contenders

11 Rayman Legends

Ubisoft's best game to date - MarioBros11

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!

12 Pikmin 3

Pikmin 4 please

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!

13 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Best game ever.

best game

How is this only 13? - MarioBros11

BEST WII U GAME! even better on switch though

14 Yoshi's Wooly World

Love the Cow Skin

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. - Entranced98

It's a great game

So adorable, I play this all the time

15 Sonic Lost World

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! - DCfnaf

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. - Mcgillacuddy

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

16 Call of Duty: Black Ops II

It looks good on the Wii U, but it just looks like a downgrade from The Xbox 360 version, At least the Online is free though, and There's many noobs on the game - B1ueNew

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

17 Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

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. - Mcgillacuddy

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

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

18 ZombiU

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?

19 Lego City: Undercover

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

I hate this game

You get to go undercover

Kids Grand Theft Auto with cops

20 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

21 Tekken 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...

Fun game

22 Assassin's Creed III

This looks good, There should Assassin's creed on the switch - B1ueNew

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

23 Xenoblade Chronicles X

In my Top 3 of All videogames - VanillaCrash

Okay, this game is actually really good. It's the first Xenoblade game I've played, and I was pretty impressed. Good storyline, good graphics, and some really cool designs (especially for the Gamepad). - kinnij7204

Only 67 should be at least in the top 10

Best graphics on the wii you so far

24 New Super Luigi U

At least it provides a challenge, unlike NSMBU - TheInsomniac

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

25 Hyrule Warriors

Really unique Zelda game - MarioBros11

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. - Thifer20

This game is awesome! How is it down here! - DarkDragon_492

26 Bayonetta 2

I was hoping for this to be in the top ten, but a lot of people still think this game is a bootleg simply because it's Wii U exclusive! Just wait until the Switch gets Bayonetta 3 exclusively! With even MORE Nintendo costumes! - SonicTheBlueBlur2

How's this game only 30th? This game deserves at least 5th place!

Awesome game, the only problem is that not a lot of people have played it.

One of the best action games ever and for $60 you get two great games worth your money

27 Pokken Tournament

I can't beat B rank - MarioBros11

very nice

I found the other pokemons better but this one has the best music

Flat out mediocre maybe it's just because I 5 u cc kk at the game and had way too high expectations

28 Mario Party 10

This is a good game, just because of bowser - B1ueNew

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!

29 Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Raver nature! - MarioBros11

Really Creative and a blast to play!

A worthy 3D world spin off of fun challenging puzzles

I love this game! Put this in the top ten you can go on a mine cart go in a palace even you can go play in new super Mario 3d world

30 Batman: Arkham Origins

Get this OFF. Worst game ever, no joke. - WonkeyDude98

I completed every challenge in the game.Even the Enigma most wanted which took me 1 week

31 Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition

Batman: Arkham City is an amazing game no matter the console. I wish I had the pleasure of having this for the Wii U; however, I still find new things to do, new combos to try, as I play the Xbox 360 version OVER and OVER.

HOW IS THIS NOT ON THE LIST!? THE BEST Wii you GAME EASILY, THE Wii you TOUCH PAD MAKES THIS GAME EPIC, BATMAN for the win!

Seriously, COME THE **** ON! This deserves to be NUMBER ONE! It has everything, from a good story to twists, plus its not to easy

32 Disney Infinity 3.0
33 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Best Assassin's Creed game by a long shot. - Lord28

Expands upon ac3 and has best stealth in assassins creed series

People say the Wii you ahs horrible third party but at least this one is good. - HeavyDonkeyKong

34 Just Dance 4

I like the songs and dance

This Song Is Top Ten Material. Nothing less.

35 NBA 2K13

Eh pretty good game for start expecting 2k14 to be better

36 Need for Speed Most Wanted U

Stuck at number 20. This should be number 1 whereas New Super Mario Bros you should be cut off from this list.

This game is really good. The cars look really nice, sound great and controls good

I think it is great and the cars look better than the public

37 The Wonderful 101

If you're a fan of Viewtiful Joe and Bayonetta you'll love this game.

Awesome game on wii you the gameplay when fighting enemies is fun so underrated

Everything is great! Well, except for the panty shots (what?! )

Why isn't this even on here?

38 Darksiders II

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

39 Bayonetta

Very good game but I'm sad that it was ported to the switch

40 Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE
41 Shovel Knight

One of the finest platformers of all time. Takes elements from NES classics like Mega Man, SMB3, and Ducktales and improves on them. Also, the soundtrack is phenomenal.

42 Game Party Champions
43 Resident Evil: Revelations
44 The Amazing Spider-Man

Come on! He's flippin' Spider Man! He's the best Marvel hero by far!

45 Kirby & The Rainbow Curse

Really cool animation - MarioBros11

Underrated masterpiece - B1ueNew

This game should at least be in the top 20

This game is awesome!
