NES Remix Pack is fun, but it may be primarily for those with a sentimental attachment to the classic NES titles on which they're based. Sure, the mini-games are fun and diverse even for those who never played the originals, but the real charm is the retro appeal. Some challenges are better than others, such as playing as Luigi in a Super Mario Bros. platformer. These are enjoyable throwbacks to a simpler time with crude graphics, limited audio, and basic controls. Plus, Nintendo added new bonus features such as leaderboards, the ability to share clips, and unlockables. Although it's fun and value-priced at less than $30, it's not enough to justify buying the Wii U by itself, but overall, this highly enjoyable collection of family-friendly mini-games is a real treat for Nintendo fans.
