Well this is surprising. Now I’m not one to doubt Nintendo, but Nintendo Land did look a bit questionable in content with some of those specific mini games and one had to wonder how much depth the game would have, but 86% from Games Master magazine? That’s impressive. As for New Super Mario Bros. U, by this point I’ve had my fill of that series of Mario games and I want something different, but I guess 82% means it’s a least worth a try and it does sound better than New Super Mario Bros. 2. Anyways here’s hoping these good scores continue with other gaming critics as time moves on.
UK games publication Games Master has reviewed the first batch of first party titles on Wii U. The magazine awardedNintendo Land, 86%, and said that it includes “some of the most innovative, raucous and party-fuelling fun we’ve ever had with a console.” The publication awarded New Super Mario Bros U, 82%, and said that it was “surprised” by the amount of innovation on show in its later levels, and despite being an easier franchise entry concludes that New Super Mario Bros U “bodes well for Mario’s future Wii U outings”.
