Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

GameRevolution's Top 25 Wii U Games - 2013 Edition

Posted on Sunday, December 29 @ 12:00:00 Eastern by GR_Staff



10. LEGO City Undercover


Yes, there are two LEGO games on this list; however, LEGO City Undercover is far different than any game in the series before it. This open-world title isn't based on any specific IP and thus afforded Traveller's Tales the liberty to create an entire universe of their own. The result? A fun, family-friendly sandbox full of charming characters set within a surprisingly detailed LEGO world.



9. Scribblenauts Unlimited

While 5th Cell's fourth proper installment in the Scribblenauts franchise features many of the same mechanics from the prior entries, Unlimited takes the word-building experience to new heights with a fully fleshed out story and world to explore. Instead of just hopping from level to level, players are free to roam and gain a better understanding of the protagonist, Maxwell. Sure, it isn't profoundly deep, but its charm more than makes up for it.



8. New Super Luigi U

Who thought an expansion starring a second-rate plumber could be so amazing? New Super Luigi U takes the framework of New Super Mario Bros. U and retools it around Luigi and his wacky jumping style. Racing through various levels, trying to beat the clock, is an absolute blast and puts a nice spin on the classic 2D platforming experience. There's also plenty of challenge here for those who too often find the Mario games to be a breeze.



7. Nintendo Land

You may initially scoff at this party-centric Wii U launch title, but until you've played through each of the "attractions" with a bunch of friends, you really can't judge. You see, Nintendo Land manages to tie together the capabilities of the GamePad and Wiimote in a local multiplayer experience that is unparalleled. The asynchronous multiplayer is truly genius. It's just a shame Nintendo (and other studios for that matter) haven't been able to take more advantage of this feature.



6. Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate

Capcom's addictive monster-hunting treasure-collecting action-adventure series made its way to Wii U in excellent fashion in the form of Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate. It may have a steep learning curve, but those that have managed to scale that wall of initial difficulty swear by the franchise. Killing massive monsters and collecting awesome loot sure sounds like it's worth the insane time investment, right? Well... it is for many, many people.
