Nintendo Wii U review

 

Can the Nintendo Wii U redefine the way we play? T3 takes a closer look

Tactile ; multi-use GamePad ; Full HD graphics at last ; Genuinely revolutionary

Weak GamePad battery life ; No launch games for 2 GamePads ; Need More Wii-U specific games

Nintendo Wii U review

 

The new future of consoles starts with Nintendo's Wii U. Or does it? We hit up the latest gaming hardware to find out

Great fun ; Clever uses for the Gamepad ; Brings multiplayer back to the couch

Will be overpowered by rival next gen consoles ; Sluggish UI ; Not as accessible as the Wii

It provides no graphical leap, but the Wii U’s take on dual-screen gaming is a revelation, especially when gaming with friends

Nintendo Wii U review

 

What can that GamePad really do?

Innovative GamePad ; Nintendo's finally in HD ; Improved online approach ; Large launch lineup ; Pro bundle solidly priced

Poor GamePad battery life ; Sluggish menus and interface ; Online issues, delayed features ; Lacks early system seller ; Basic set is a bad deal

Nintendo Wii U review

 

For the past six years, the Nintendo Wii has been a bit of a joke compared to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Its novel use of motion controls helped it sell by the bucket load when it was first released in 2006, so much so that nearly everyone and...

It may not be super powerful, but Nintendo delivers a fun and innovative new console that finally gets online right

Nintendo Wii U review

 

It's almost unbelievable that Nintendo launched the original Wii eight years ago. A games console that changed the way people viewed gaming, one that meant anyone young or old could pick up a controller and play almost without instruction. Updated on...

The Wii U isn't quite the game changer that the Wii was all those years ago, but it's certainly a lot of fun. The GamePad is unique, innovative and holds tonnes of potential for future titles – we hope they can use it well. Backwards compatibility with...

Hands on with Nintendo's Wii U games console

 

The Wii U controller was surprisingly light and responsive, except for the one time that it froze and needed to be restarted

Nintendo Wii U review

  (Rating Hidden)

As 'next-gen' games consoles go, the Nintendo Wii U is considered to be some way off its main rivals - the Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One. It's a cheaper alternative that can also double as an internet TV box, but how does it perform in that...

Nintendo Wii U review

 

Japanese veteran bets big on gameplay innovation over hardware

Tablet Gamepad, sleek design, social Miiverse community, increased app offering

Controller battery life isn't long enough

We're very impressed with the Nintendo Wii U. As with the Wii before it, Nintendo has bet big on innovations in gameplay rather than hardware.

Nintendo Wii U

 

Coming at the tail end of 2012, and offering a fine way to start 2013, was Nintendo's latest console, the Wii U.

Considerably better visuals than the Wii, GamePad is comfortable to hold, Dual screen functionality

The GamePad needs to be charged separately, doesn''t have the best battery life

REVIEW: Nintendo Wii U games console

 

The next-generation of home gaming consoles has arrived, with Nintendo's new Wii U leading the charge. Again opting for an innovative control method over brute graphical and processing power, will Nintendo be able to replicate the wild success of the...

Rather than viewing the Wii U as the first entry into the next-generation of gaming, Nintendo's latest offering makes most sense when set apart from its rumoured, super-powered next-gen rivals. By again not concerning themselves with spec-sheet stat...
