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.
But then I managed to play Nintendo Land at a Nintendo Unleashed event a couple of months ago and was very impressed. In fact, out of all the Wii U games I had tried that day, it was Nintendo Land that persuaded me to make the console a day one purchase.
Now I have my very own Wii U I've been enjoying what Nintendo Land has to offer. Out of the 12 mini-games to choose from, here are my top five. I'd like to know yours so have a read and then vote in the poll on the last page.
5. Donkey Kong's Crash Course
In this game you have to use the GamePad to guide a cart through a course that looks like the original Donkey Kong game. To get to the end the player must press buttons and blow in the microphone to move platforms.
On the surface it's probably not the most appealing game Nintendo Land has to offer, but as a single-player game it's ridiculously addictive. I've still not managed to reach the end yet but I'm determined not to give up.
