Genre: Party Game
Developer: Nintendo EAD
Released: November 18th 2012
Nintendo Land is a carnival/theme park game that uses your Mii character. It allows you to play 12 different mini games, styled after many different Nintendo games.
Nintendo Land is meant to be what Wii Sports was to the Wii. It’s meant to show off the consoles capabilities and provide some fun activities for both you and friends.
The gameplay is Nintendo Land is fun but limited. The mini games are good to play but you need other people to play with you in order to experience the game to the max. The gameplay is similar to playing mini games in the Mario Party series. The mini games themselves don’t last very long but they are fun to play a few times in a row.
The graphics in Nintendo Land are extremely good, showing Wii U’s HD capabilities. Each mini game takes the style of certain Nintendo franchises from the past and it does a good job respecting the look of those franchises while updating them to HD.
A review about Nintendo Land is not going to be a very long one. Nintendo Land does not have a story, characters, or much of anything besides Mini Games. While Nintendo Land is fun to play with friends, the fun wears off quickly. With only 12 mini games, you could play the whole game in about an hour and while some of the mini games are fun, the replay value is not really there. Nintendo Land is that game that you take out and play when friends are coming over and they want to play something short and simple. The problem is Nintendo Land isn’t worth the money you pay for it. I would be willing to buy this game if it was $19 but not at it’s actual price $50. If you want something you can play with friends and family, this is the game to get. But be warned, no one is gonna want to play this game for very long.
- A Simple 12 Mini Game video game
- Fun to play with a group of friends or family
- The return of some iconic Nintendo franchises
- Game is extremely short and kinda pointless
- No storyline
- 12 Mini games gets very boring
- Little to no replay value
- Not worth the money you’ll pay right now
