This review is from: Nintendo Wii U Console - 32GB Black Deluxe Set (Console)
The Wii U is a must have system for Nintendo fans. Yes, it's not perfect, but no system is. Between the amazing Gamepad, updated graphics, and the novel game mechanics made possible by the screen on the Gamepad, I have been having a blast ever since I got this system.
The initial download/update did take a few hours with my DSL internet (the cheapest DSL available by the way). Once I got past this initial hurdle, the fun took off with no end in sight! I love the controller, graphics, games, etc. Any Nintendo fan should get this console. The Gamepad is more revolutionary than the Wii Remote in many ways. The opportunity for asymmetrical gameplay in local multiplayer is a huge advantage that Nintendoland, ZombiU, and New Super Mario Bros. U take full advantage of. And being able to use the Wii Remote controllers that you already own from the original Wii is a great money saver. We'll have to wait and see how successful the Wii U turns out to be, but based on my experiences it should be a smash hit.
