GamesMaster bags the first two Wii U reviews

The new issue of GamesMaster magazine – which comes with an Xbox 360 WWE avatar outfit, Wii U poster and Xbox/PS3 joypad “skins” this month – contains the first two Wii U game reviews.

Hitman: Absolution is also reviewed on Xbox 360 this issue – another first review.

Nintendo Land scored a jolly 86%. “An essential purchase for party lovers that whets the Nintendo appetite,” they said. New Super Mario Bros. U also scored well receiving 82%. “A great excuse for families to gather round the TV, and an enticing glimpse of Mario’s HD future,” was their conclusion for the colourful 2D platformer.

Hitman: Absolution meanwhile walked away with 90%. “On the right difficulty setting Absolution is Hitman at its cleverest, funniest, twisted best,” ended their six page review.

We previewed Nintendo Land back in September and from what we’ve played, GamesMaster’s review would appear to be spot on.
