Best Wii U Games

The Top Ten

1 Super 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!

Actually, my perspective changed towards Princess Peach has partially changed. If a character from Super Mario 3D World is playable, then he/she will defeat every enemy in the game. - The Ultimate Daredevil to recaller

2 Super 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.

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!

3 Mario 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!

Awesome graphics - YOSHIA2121

4 New 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.

I love super Mario bros

True super Mario bros. Is the best! Super Mario world is truly the best.

Spell correct I meant baby yoshis - YOSHIA2121

5 Nintendo 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

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 - dylangerleibold

This game sucks it needs more stuff - YOSHIA2121

6 The 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 am glad they brought back a excellent GameCube game I play it 247

7 Super Mario Maker

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.

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 my favorite - YOSHIA2121

8 Splatoon

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.

Best new original idea ever, great single player, shows mechanics very well but is very short though can beat in 3 hours

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.

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!

10 Pikmin 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!

The Plasma Wraith was a great boss all of them were.
I just couldn't find out what to do.

The Contenders

11 Rayman Legends

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!

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

12 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?!

It's a good game. Not as good as DKC 1 and 2, but one of the better DK entries nonetheless. - marmalade_skies

14 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

15 Assassin'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.

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

This game is awesome and should be number 1

17 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.

This… this… THIS… HAS A Wii U VERSION…?
OH MY GOD! I'M BUYING THIS ON AMAZON OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD!

19 Yoshi's Wooly World

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

AWESOME
