Very Good

Wii Sports ain't got nothing on Nintendo Land

This game's purpose is to show off what the dual screens of the Wii U will mean for console gameplay. I'm not 100% sure it accomplished that. The F Zero attraction is so broken you will likely only play it once or twice. Yoshi and Takamaru's are gimmicky.

Yet I am pleasantly surprised at just how wonderful and nostalgic this game is.

Each attraction is lovingly created around a Nintendo franchise, but they are not all created equal. Zelda, Mario, Luigi, Metroid, Pikmin, and DK have amazing games. The rest are forgettable tech demos.

However, when Nintendo Land is good, it soars. I have not enjoyed a party game this much ever before. Metroid Blast is good enough that if it was the only attraction on this disc, I'd be fine with that. Mario Chase perfectly explains why Nintendo created the Wii U Gamepad. And if you liked Skyward Sword, you'll love the Zelda attraction.

Overall, I keep coming back to this game in a way i never did with Wii Sports. This is not the game you get for grandma though, its not the mass appeal of Wii Sports but rather it is for Nintendo lovers, those of us who grew up with Link and Mario.
