    1. And this is the problem when it comes to scoring Nintendo games, people expect higher scores and can’t except scores lower that 80 just because it has Nintendo’s name on it.

      1. And this is another problem, when people assume things. I don’t think Nintendo games below 80 are bad….at all. I was just pointing out that the score couple minutes after the article has been posted XD

  1. Wow. Suprised any of the critics like Nintendo Land. From what people were saying I thought that game was gonna get ripped. Doesn’t matter any way since I’m one of the seven people who order the Basic Set.

      1. No, alot of people from the gaming industry were complaining the game felt holllow and would not be revolutionary like Wii Sports was.

        1. If someone does not like Nintendo, and spend half their day here complaining, yes, they are a troll.

          Also, anyone who is 10 ft and 500 lbs are also a troll.

  2. Everyone check out dem IGN reviews of NSMBU and Nintendo Land . NSMBU= 9.1/10 Nintendo Land is 8.7/10.
    I knew My choice of Getting NSMBU, Nintendo Land , NSMBU on day 1 was the right thing. And I’m gunna wait for some reviews to dictate the 1 or 2 other games I purchase too ^_^ (probably Darksiders 2 and AC3)

          1. So games aren’t grouped together as 9.0’s or 8.5’s , they can have a scale which puts them in order.

            If you look at 3ds reviews they’re all 8.5 lol , so they’re all exactly the same ??? Kid icarus should be like 8.9 for example whilst NSMB2 should be 8.0 instead of both 8.5.

  3. i don’t know why people are hating on Nintendo Land. it has 12 amazing mini games from our favorite franchises. some of them offer great multiplayer, levels, and challenges. plus there’s a huge beautiful park to walk around in and stuff to unlock.

    1. People are hating on the fact that it is a full retail game composed of just mini games. Personally, I don’t think it justifies the full retail price but I’m getting the deluxe so I get it anyways. It’s good for people that have other people to play with at their house. Its not good for me because I mostly just play alone at my house and I believe it lacks online also so that is another turn off for some people.

  5. Although I’ll be getting Nintendo Land as part of the Wii U Deluxe Set, I DEFINITELY want to purchase New Super Mario Bros. U!!!!! IGN have already given a 9.1 out of 10 for the iconic Italian plumber from Brooklyn.

  6. It lacks the longevity of Wii Sports?! With more attractions, and some that don’t even need more than one player in order to make you get 100% of the fun the attraction gives, and more options for gameplay, using the GamePad or the Wii Remote?! I find something wrong with this quote! u_u

  8. Wow. New super mario bros U got that high of a rating huh? I thought people were gonna complain that it was a rehash. Good good, looks like the dev team behind the game is actually putting forth effort this time, then again Ninten and the dev teams working for it have mastered the art of platforming as well as being advanced in making stages that fully utilize the genre so there’s no surprise there.

    I won’t lie though, I honestly love how deep the backgrounds are now. So much depth to them, plus the challenge modes will bring out my inner gamer skill in the genre so nonetheless I’m excited.

  10. How the hell could Nintendoland lack the longevity of Wii Sports? Obviously I haven’t played it, but the number of things you can do in Nintendoland is more than Wii Sports, with obviously more fleshed out games. Sorry, but that doesn’t make sense.

  11. Don’t judge the games until you play them yourselves, as we all have different likes and dislikes. Do take reviews into consideration, though, to get a bit of an idea. Haters are gonna hate based off… nothing at all. Let them be the inch brained morons and let the intelligent people base their opinion off facts and hands on time. Nintendo Land might “look” like a kids game, but when you play it you might smile and laugh just like when you were a kid having- what games are all about- fun. Trolls are worthless human beings trying to get attention. Just let them live the rest of a terrible life alone:D
