What's your favourite Nintendo Land game?

Comment on site articles.

Marti Bennett picks her top five

When Nintendo Land was first announced I must admit that I wasn't looking forward to it. To me it looked like it was going to be another Wii Sports or Wii Play, just a basic demo designed to show off what the console can do.

Mario Chase for sure. Best Nintendo Land Attraction by far.

Without a doubt my favourite is Donkey Kongs Crash Course. Ive probably played it more than all the others combined. I still havent completed it though. Its so hard, but so addicting, and the music is incredibly catchy

Amazingly I still haven't got round to playing this, been playing NSMBU and Trine 2 which I got on launch day. I'll eventually get round to it this Christmas when the extended family comes round for some mutliplayer party fun!

Out of the ones I've played (I don't have a Wii U) it has to be Mario Chase.
On a different note, anyone else notice the lack of a Pokémon attraction?

I would have to go with Metriod Blast or Mario Chase, they're my favorite.

What about metroid blast ? In my opinion the best game by far because of it's depth. Mario chase is good but I'd argue that luigi ghost mansion is better , it feels like there's more skill involved. Haven't really been playing anything other than assasin's creed 3 which has blown my mind :shock: as I've only ever owned a wii being a ninty fan and all.
Here's my top 5 nintendo land games :
Metroid blast
Luigis ghost mansion
Donkey kong's crash coarse
Pikmin
Legend of zelda battle quest

Right now it's

1. Donkey Kong's Crash Course - though trying to get past area 9 and never making it past the first press of R is gonna make it drop in my rankings soon.

2. Pikmin - makes me really excited for Pikmin 3, but I'm not so much looking forward to the cramp you could get from trying to hold the GamePad with one hand and use the control stick, and use the stylus with the other.

3. Metroid Blast - excellent use of the controls and makes me wonder what a Star Fox game could be like.

4. Zelda Battle Quest - again, great use of the controls and second screen. Though I hope the Wii U Zelda will use the second screen as more of an item menu than usually playing the game on. Need to see those HD graphics on the TV, and like most of the good games on NL you miss half of that because the second screen is what you need to look at.

5. F-Zero - Aside from some dodgy controls that make you go off-centre sometimes, or for some reason makes my GamePad disconnect occasionally, this is amazing. I just hope steering in a possible future F-Zero is done with the GamePad held normally.

I've only played the 2 player games once (I thought you were supposed to be able to play with the computer? or have I not spend enough time trying do find that option?) but Animal Crossing was great when I played it. I'm glad to see not many people rate Octopus Dance, because of all the games I really dislike it. The control sticks being up so high on the GamePad, combined with having to hold it up in front of you makes it really difficult to get the control sticks to go exactly where you want them (straight left, not slightly up or down left) and even my dog doesn't like it. She barks whenever she sees me play it.

Had to be Luigi's Ghost Mansion for me - as well as loving Luigi, (can't wait for Dark Moon, but probs getting for my b-day instead of march, but major case of de ja vu, remember pre-ordering it from Zavvi last March!) I just find it one of the most inventive ways of the Gamepad being used - bring on Christmas 2013! (and, finally, my WiiU! Car lessons this year I'm afraid, well, quite happy about this as well!, not as happy with insurance, fuel, tax etc...)

Its really difficult to pick from that list because from a single player experience I'd say I'm tied between crash course and balloon breeze. As a multiplayer it is definitaly ghost mansion, its so much fun to play and then tension you feel being haunted by the ghost player is really un-nerving at times for such a simple game!

I think Nintendo Land 2 would be perfect to re-introduce Pokémon Snap, just to see what it would play like on Wii U and then BAM a full release if it works

Luigi's Ghost Mansion for me. The fright people get when the ghost grabs them is great.
I have to say I love the Donkey Kong and F-Zero single player games, and Mario Chase and Animal Crossing Sweet Day are also very good

I have been really impressed with Nintendoland, when it was first announced i thought it looked interesting but was concerned about the depth of each attraction so after getting the game with my premium Wii U i was pleased to see that attractions like Pikmin Adventure have multiple stages.

My favourite attraction has to be Mario Chase as it is great fun shouting out which zone Mario is in and helps show what makes the gamepad unique.

Out of all the single player game donkey kongs crash course is my favourite, my first couple of hours on my Wii U were spent trying to get through the course!

I am enjoying winning prizes and seeing various Nintendo themes/items appear in the plaza. Looking forward to having a plaza that is as full as the one in the E3 demo!

this is quite a tough decision, zelda is great but is better with 2 or more players (on your own with just the arrow is very tough imo) donkey kong is brilliant but frustrating, pikimi is great and very twee, f-zero is good (i preffer to play looking at the tv) so im going to sit on the fence and say they are all good in there onw way....sorry :mrgreen:

I voted for Pikmin Adventure (never played any Pikmin before but this makes me want the full game) :D , but it was tough to choose. I've only been playing solo so far so not had a go at any of the multi player only ones.

But close behind are Metriod Blast (slowy getting the hang of dual stick control :? ), Yoshi's Fruit Cart (Love that you use both screens solo) and Donkey Kong's Crash Course (wich looks simple but is so tricky, keep crashing and hitting my head :( ).

Loving it all.

I have to say, I absolutly love Ninty Land. There are so many gd little games on there and then you have others that are imo just Meh.
One game, for me that stands out the most is TLOZ; Battle Quest. I also got my younger sister playing which i must say was doing awsome at it. eventually defeating ganon and moving onto the advanced she happily wanted to continue,
people may think that its just another gimmic but love it
