This game exceeded my expectations and it was so easy to get people who don't know anything about playing video games into one of the many tournaments. Normally, I don't go for arcade games but there is something for every gamer and any skill level. There are games that you can get anyone into playing but there are also games that experienced gamers may find challenging. Sure, it was a vibe that's more geared toward families and children. However, I think anybody that loves their new Wii U will love having this go-to game stay in their permanent collection as anybody can play it, it's something you can play with family/ guests, and it utilizes the full capacity of the game pad.

The best part of this game is in the multiplayer fun that is to be had. You can team up with a group of friends and take on giant bugs in Pikmin, sword fighting in zelda, and shoot metroids. These are all fun experiences to work together with a friend in. It doesn't matter how many friends you have either. The game adjusts the difficulty to the appropriate level in whatever your playing. If you don't feel like working together you can go against each othe, which is the best part of the experience. Play a 3rd person shooter style competition in Metroid. With the person with the game pad controling the ship. Pikmin you can battle the people on the tv to collect the most candies.(This is probaly the least satisfying bc it feels kind of like a button mashing brawl. Still fun and maybe as I play more with people more strategy will come in to play) Luigis Ghost Mansion is a blast because you get to super excited when you are one of the people on the screen and your able to finaly take down the ghost. Mario CHase is a lot of fun as players on the scream and shout about where mario is and try to work together to bring him down. My favorite of the competitive ones is the animal crossing one sweet day. In this one the person with the game pad is in charge of two guards with each of the analog sticks. The others try to gather the candy. I think this one is the best balanced and my family plays this one for hours at a time. The single player games are all decent. The best is donkey kong crash course in it's very fun and frustrating way. They all have a fun addicting element to them. They are by no means easy. Easy to understand but very difficult to master. I would recomend this game to anyone.
Downside is on some of the competitive I wish they had more levels to choose from. I also wish there was downloadable content of new attractions. Some of the single player games could have greatly benefited from online leader boards.
