Nintendo Land is a flagship title for the new Wii U console, expected to demonstrate the variety and promise of the new controller. In these episodes of FamilyGamerTV, our whole family puts the game through its paces and we find a surprising level of longevity.

MiiVerse also proves to be a highly effect social network, suitable for the whole family and really adds a great deal to the WiiU experience. We also see how Nintendo Land's style really appealed to our children and encouraged them to roleplay and play together on a different level.

Despite expecting Nintendo Land to be little more than a tech demo, we really got to grips with the "asynchronous multiplayer", where the WiiU pad controller has a different role to play than everybody else. Our family spent a surprising amount of time with Nintendo Land. Watch these episodes to find out why.

"Videogame reviews for the whole family, not just the kids. I dig out videogame experiences to intrigue and interest grownups and children. This is post-hardcore gaming where accessibility, emotion and storytelling are as important as realism, explosions and bravado."
