First console I bought at launch,
This review is from: Nintendo Wii U Console - 32GB Black Deluxe Set (Console)
I'm very impressed with the Wii U. I'm playing this thing with my 3 year old son and we are having a blast! Nintendo Land is the game I have with it and to be honest there is something in it for everyone. Nintendo got it right again as usual and people love to write the company off but they are doing all the right things in my opinion. Whether or not this system is as powerful as its competitors does not matter. The game system is fun to play and that is the bottom line!
The addition of the game pad or whatever it is called adds to the game play definitely. It would be great in the future to have games that make use of more than one so your friends can bring their game pad over and maybe Nintendo Land already does that. I have not been this excited about video games since the original NES. Heck even if Nintendo made a way for you to hook the 3DS up through the system and use it as an additional controller would be great and heck maybe it already does that!!!
My only issue with the system is the needed software update, but that is soon forgotten once you start playing. Yes, there is a slight learning curve, but it is slight because Nintendo does a great job in introducing the game pad controller to you.
Again I am happy I bought the system and was going to wait until Christmas to open it, but I'm glad I did not wait.
