Nintendo's Wii U has been out for just over a year, and while it hasn't exactly been a smash-hit success, it's nevertheless garnered a fervent following thanks to its library of truly excellent games. To help you sort out the best from the rest, Team USG has looked at the roster of Wii U titles and chosen the ones they think are the most worth the money. We've linked directly to games we've already reviewed, and provided a mini-review for those we haven't.
There are two categories listed below. The Best is exactly what it says – these are the games we believe are the finest Wii U has to offer. Recommended games are great fun, but are best suited for fans of that particular type of game.
- Wonderful 101
- Pikmin 3
- Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
- Super Mario 3D World
- Deus Ex: Human Revolution (Director's Cut) – A terrific cinematic first-person sci-fi adventure set in a dystopian future. One of the best adult games for Wii U.
- LEGO City Undercover – A wonderfully accessible take on the open-world genre, coupled with that trademark Lego humor.
- Mutant Mudds Deluxe – Very enjoyable and challenging oldschool platform game that feels like it comes right out of the very early '90s.
