20. Call of Duty: Black Ops II
Treyarch'sbestCall of Dutytitle made its way to Wii U in excellent fashion. While it is hardly the most popular version of the game, it offerssome interesting features that set it apart fromBlack Ops IIon other platforms. With the GamePad allowing a second player to have a screen of their own, local play doesn't require players to share a screen. That in and of itself is reason alone to give the Wii U version a chance.
19. Game & Wario
WhileWii Party Uoffers an entertaining way to kill some time with your friends and family, it lacks the charm and personality thatGame & Wariobrings to the table. As such, this wacky and downright silly title edged out the aforementioned party game. TheWario-centric title have always offered loads of humor, and that's here in spades. Plus, it makes use of the GamePad in some really interesting ways, a quality that is ironically hard to come by.
18. Need for Speed: Most Wanted U
Believe it or not, Wii U is home to a handful of really great racing games, despite the noticeableabsence of aMario Karttitle for the platform. Electronic Arts brought one ofCriterion's greatestracing games to Nintendo's console, and it's an absolute blast to play. Whether racing against your friends or taking on the various challenges scattered around the world, there is so much to do inMost Wantedthatyou won't likely get bored anytime soon.
17. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
The other truly impressive racing title on Wii U is from the folks at Sega. Sure, the fact that it stars a whole host of iconic Sega characters is one of the reasons Racing Transformed is so amazing, but the unique track design and vehicle transformations make this a truly engaging and immersive racing experience in their own right. Switching from land to water to air is fast, fluid, and seamless, and adds a lot of variety to each race. It's also gorgeous, which certainly doesn't count against it.
16. bit.Trip Runner2
This unique rhythm-based running game is one of Wii U's finest downloadable gems. It's got genius level design and pitch-perfect controls. It's hard to put to words exactly why the bit.Tripgames are so amazing; they simply need to be experienced firsthand.Runner2sports improved visuals and some interesting little additions that add up to a wholly superior experience. It also offers that tough-as-nails difficultyfor those looking for a real challenge.
