The Ten Most Critically Beloved Wii U Games
The Wii U is still kind of a young system, but critics have already found games to rave about. Some of the games featured here are probably unexpected. In fact, out of the ten games, seven of them are from third-party publishers. I guess that beats the notion that only first party games from Nintendo are worth owning.
This list is based off of GameRankings' All-Time Best list found in the Wii U section of the website. GameRankings compiles review scores from print magazines and video game review websites to determine a particular game's final score. Because of the specific selection of review scores that GameRankings use, the order of the games featured here might be different from other review aggregators.
1. Rayman Legends - GameRankings Score: 93.00%
What Critics Have Said:
"Legends is easily one of the Wii U's best games." - Scott thompson, Nintendo World Report
2. Super Mario 3D World - GameRankings Score: 92.77%
3. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD - GameRankings Score: 91.08%
The Wind Waker Wii U bundle includes a copy of the game pre-installed in the system. The Wii U GamePad also has a nifty design in this bundle.
