Free Game with Mario kart 8 - which one to get?

So my dilemma - recently got a Wii U (loving it so far) and bought Mario Kart 8 however I can't decide on which free game to download with the promotion. I don't have hours and hours to put into games anymore so if I need to put 30+ hours into the likes of Zelda: Wind Walker, this may be a waste for me.

I used to own a Wii with all the mario games and am going to be picking up Mario 3d soon so not sure if getting Super Mario U would be too much of the same of what I've played before.

Does anyone have any suggestions. Pikmin, Wonderful 101 and Monster Hunter all look interesting, but I don't know alot about them!

Any help appreciated :)

I personally opted for the wonderful 101, I dont think it'll disappoint you
#2
I'd go with the Sonic game if you don't have the time for Zelda.

I'd say go with Pikimin or New Super Mario Bros. U. Both are great and can be picked up to play when you have 10 mins to kill.

Thanks for the comments so far, I had a read of this http://www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/57956/what-free-game-to-get-with-mario-kart-8/?page=2 which gives the reviews of the games.

What is Pikmin like? Is it a cute strategy game?

I played the demo of Wonderful 101 and its just seemed like chaos, probably need to give the demo another proper go nut just felt like a lot of buttom bashing

I opted for Zelda. Although I'm the same an won't have the hours to put in. I suppose I'm hoping for that rainy day. But I'd advise Monster Hunter. It's a pretty good game, check out a review. Plus it's like Hen's teeth to find anywhere or paying stupid amounts on the Web. Super Mario Bros U is a good bit of fun too.

the demo of the 101doesn't really portray the game well, as your pretty powerfully and have had no training on what to do. the actual game would break you in gently and let you enjoy it more. check out some reviews on it

I went for Pikmin but i actually found it quite stressful in the later stages, i've never played it before so it might be because im a pile of poop and not used to the mechanics of it, if you haven not got Super Mario Bros U i would recommend that especially if you have mates playing :)

Is Super Mario Bros U similar to the original wii game: New Super Mario Bros?

I got monster hunter as a free download on 3ds I didn't think much of it, if you already got a wii you can get wind waker on GC for cheap and just play that, personally I never bothered finished it, I lost interest.

I'd look at what interests you most and then look up the value and how often they have turned up in cheap deals, thrn pick the one you're interested in that tends to be the most expensive.

It's the same core idea, being a 2D Mario platformer, but significantly larger in scope (in terms of length and variety). On the whole, based on contemporary standards I'd say that NSMBU is a better game than the original DS NSMB by quite a distance.

Thanks for all your comments - going to grab Pikmin and give that a go!

I got monster hunter as I either had the other ones or I could pick them up cheaper (W101 was £20 from argos ebay) whereas the price for monster hunter is still quite high (comparatively speaking)

The DLC will also increase your available play time with the game too - a good, solid, choice

Hi All. What game should I choose between Pikmin 3 & Sonic the Lost world for 2 boys aged 6 & 7. I already have Mario bros U & Zelda windwaker HD.

I picked Zelda even though I have a physical copy, I either own or wouldn't want to own any of the others.
