I Love the Wii U, Just Like Nintendo's Predecessors,
This review is from: Nintendo Wii U Console - 32GB Black Deluxe Set (Console)
There has been some lengthy reviews that have already stated how I feel about this console. So I'm going to touch on the basics.-
This is an extremely innovative device. The gameplay is unique and fun. I can play for hours with my kids and wonder where the time has went. Nintendo's first-party games are always fun and usually worth the purchase of the console alone. The graphics are crisp and clear and look great. I purchased my console with a couple of first-party games and a couple of third-party games. The third-party games look fantastic and more third-party support for Nintendo is a huge plus. There are some very minor hiccups right now with some third-party games, but this isn't because the Wii U is an inferior console. It is due to gaming designers being unfamiliar with the new tech. The games still look great and they will only continue to get better.
There is a lengthy update when the user first boots up the console. But what is four hours in the grand scheme of things? One lengthy update that fixes bugs should not be a reason not to purchase a great console. Since the first update, I have had several hours of enjoyment. The first update is very minor in comparison to the numerous hours of fun that I have had.
If you are on the fence about this product, don't be. It is unique. It is fun. And with great upcoming games like Metroid Prime, Zelda, Mario, Star Fox, Donkey Kong, and tons of third-party support, this is and will continue to be a wonderful system.
