Wii U reviews begin: Mario & Nintendo Land rated

Wii U is out across Europe from November 30th, and the console's first software reviews have arrived online courtesy of Games Master. Check out the scores and what was said below.

CVG reports that the reviews come from this week's issue of Games Master.

The issue awards Nintendo Land an 86/100 score and New Super Mario Bros. U an 82/100 - perhaps not the kind of stellar scoring one would expect from flagship console launch titles.

CVG adds that the Nintendo Land review stated it contains "some of the most innovative, raucous and party-fuelling fun we've ever had with a console."

On Mario, the magazine stated that it "bodes well for Mario's future Wii U outings".
