Nintendo Wii U review roundup

Nintendo's next-gen console is here, the Wii U, check out the review roundup!

| Gaming News | Posted: Nov 18, 2012 8:31 am

We will have our own in-house review of the Nintendo Wii U soon, but for now, we've provided a roundup of the reviews from around the world. The consensus is that it's a good console - but it's no homerun for the Japanese console maker.

People seem to be loving the GamePad, not totally (low-res screen, touchscreen isn't so great) - but the general idea about it. Being close to portable console quality is nearly here thanks to Nintendo's foray into a tablet-like console. Most reviews are early days, but there are some "Review in Progress" looks at the console - which is an idea I personally love.

 

Reviewing consoles close to, or on day-one is hard. Launch titles can only be so good - there's day-one patches these days to consoles and games, and the usual bugs, etc. Anyway, on with the roundup!
