Minecraft Nintendo WiiU Edition Review

One of the things my daughter found in her stocking on Christmas morning was the game Minecraft for the WiiU. She has been obsessing over this game for a few months now and until now has been playing on my old iPhone 4.

She was thrilled to start playing one of her favourite games on her WiiU.

I won’t lie, I know very little about the world of Minecraft. I understand that you build and you must fend for your own food. That’s about as much as I know about Minecraft. My daughter on the other hand seems to know way more. Her and her friends trade tricks at school. She wants to read the books, she wants to build a castles and own a dog. Her comments and goals for this game go on and on.

Needless to say, she was super excited to start playing Minecraft WiiU Edition. If your child has played a version on Minecraft on another device they will understand how to play this game right away.

Minecraft WiiU Edition

My daughter has been playing Minecraft in creative mode and has had the best time. She has had fun exploring caves, farming crops and exploring the landscape. She has also built several cool houses. She currently has a pet cat and a pet dog.

Minecraft WiiU Edition is recommended for ages 10 and up. If you or your kids love Minecraft then you must check out Minecraft WiiU Edition. The best part is that it retails for only $29.99. It’s available now on the Nintendo eShop.

  1. The game is a ton of fun and so creative! It promotes a healthy imagination and my niece Brooke is obsessed with it!

  2. my son was never into Minecraft,I think the rage all started when he as a bit too old for it,since he is 16 now

  3. Hope Minecraft is still around when my toddler is old enough to play it. Great game for kids that actually teaches them valuable things.

  4. Great game I’m sure but don’t you wish it was like the old days before computers when kids actually played outside

  5. I’m afraid I can’t see what children see in Minecraft at all, but most seem to be big fans 🙂

  6. Minecraft is so fun…my little one isn’t into this yet…still trying to avoid screen time as much as possible since she’s only 2!

  7. I’m not sure but I suspect that my grandchildren already have this – they love playing on the Wii.
