|START》》|



After the good reception of the PS2 list of recommendable games, I wanted to create more, this time for the Wii, I am planning to make one for the N64, 3DS or Wii U, so comment which one you are more interesed first.

I am a believer that Wii had good games a lot of people never talked at all, so I made this list with games I consider from ok to great.

Here is a rules for the list.

- This list includes a lot of comments (mini reviews) by myself because the Wii is a console that I actually played a lot, I hope is clear that I consider them my personal thoughts and you are welcome to disagree with me, I also admit some comments are not pretty seriously and some of them are just stupid stuff I thought was funny.

- If you want to write a mini review for a game, do it and I will include it with the post, this time I can do it because I left more space for the thread.

- The list is split in comments because the limit of 20000 character per comment.

- The list only include NA games, so if you are from Europe you can comment some games I left behind, some of them I think are: Disaster Day of Crisis, Another Code R, Fatal Frame 4.

- This list is not perfect and I am sure I maybe left a game that is not that good or I miss one for accident.

- The catalogue has a lot of budget titles I don't consider bad but they are indeed cheap products that were released, I consider some of them entertaining and I don't have problem with that

- The objective of this list is being a shop list or a "You could like this", if you are interesed about collect the good games for the console and you needed a reference list or you have a modded Wii and want to play something new,

- Some games were included because I consider them hilarious bad.

- Some games were included because I thought they looked interesting and the merit of doubt.

- Wiiware games are not included.

- If you think I left behind a game comment it and I will add it.

- I admit that I made a mistake calling On rails gun shooter as "light gun shooter".

- The list has the classic poor grammar I have shown in the past because I frankly have problems understanding english and some rules for it.

List of games:

Number
007 Quantum of Solace

Comment: One of the lastest 007 games before the hiatus that is still up to this day, just like most games it is a standard but functional fps.

Title
Academy of Champions: Soccer

Comment:
Ubisoft making a soccer game but it is mostly cartoon than realistic, it includes a lot of classic soccer games from the past but for gamers it will possible be more interesting that it includes characters from Ubisoft franchise like Rayman, Rabbids, Altair, The prince and more, it is good for what it is.

Adventures of Tintin, The: The Game

Comment: A platforming game based on a movie that is also based on a comic book, since Ubisoft production values were high at the time this game is indeed good and better than expectable from a tie-in game.

Crash Mind Over Mutant

Comment: The sequel for the Titans reboot, this time it is an open world platforming game with a mission mechanic, it feels like a great improvement for the jacking mechanics and more, just like Titans the reception for most people that played it at the time is pretty positive, until the generic youtuber rise for say it wasn't good, sigh... it is a good game.

Destroy All Humans! Big Willy Unleashed

Comment: The game was available for more consoles but for some reason just the Wii version was released in North America, the game is about an alien that kills humans for use their meat for burgers, the game never take itself too seriously and if you have read social media comments like me, you are possible to find the concept of killing scummy humans more than interesting.

Comment: A light-gun but with dinosaurs, it is good.

DiRT 2
Disney Alice in Wonderland
Disney Epic Mickey

Comment: A pretty good platforming game with Mickey, it also includes a lot of references to Disney story, the problem thought? The game needed to remove and cut some interesting mechanics like Mickey becoming a villain because Disney wasn't happy with the concept, if you can overlook that, the game is indeed, pretty good.
Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two

Comment: Extremely good game based on the original Country franchise, almost all levels includes a new surprise that make the game a such creativity explosion, at the time some people could buy it using real bananas, cute.

Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast

Dood's Big Adventure
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3

Comment: The game is pretty good fighting one and it use the wiimote with clever inputs for simulate the special moves from the anime, it also includes more than 80 playable characters, the problem, thought, it's that a lot of them are mostly joke characters and are pretty useless if you want to fight them with some of the powerful mainstream characters.

Dragon Ball Revenge of King Piccolo

Igor: The Game

Impossible Mission

Comment: A remake from an old 80s game for PC, it looks pretty low budget but is still entertaining, it also includes the original game.

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings

Iron Man

Comment: Supposedly the game is actually good, or that I can think from reading opinions from friends and random people, so is here for merit of doubt.

Letter J

Jambo! Safari: Animal Rescue

Comment: It is a game by Sega about rescuing and saving animals.

Jaws: Ultimate Predator
Jelly Belly: Ballistic Beans

Comment: Don't look me like that, I also expected shovelware, but the game is actually a puzzle-pinball game using the candy beans, it is simple? Yes, it works? Yes, its decent? Yes, its decent something that is not amazing but is still mostly good? I think so, not everything that is good needs to be gold, though.

Jewel Master: Cradle of Rome
Jewel Quest Trilogy
Jimmie Johnson's Anything with an Engine

Comment: The cover of the game make it look like shovelware but it is actually a pretty decent racing karting game, the levels also includes a lot hazards and the tracks design feel like someone actually tried to make a proper game, I also love that absolutely all hazards are obviously props instead of fantasy stuff, it make feels the game charming and not generic.

Ju-on: The Grudge - Haunted House Simulator

Comment: It is a game based on the classic japanese horror movie franchise, the game feels a lot like a pioneer for the sub-genre of trying to escape a place and getting jump-scared all the time, something that like you could guess is a pretty popular and maybe generic genre nowadays.

Letter K

Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight
Kart Racer

Kid Adventures: Sky Captain
King of Fighters Collection, The: The Orochi Saga
Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Comment: It feels like the cancelled Gamecube game, it also has a 4 player mode, minigames and more, the lore of the game is actually clever.

Let's Tap

Comment: No idea what is this game about but what make it interesting is that it don't require buttons for play it, instead you put the wiimote on the table and it will detect the  movement and sounds from your hands, if you are wondering, yes, someone told me this but I didn't brother to watch a gameplay, sorry!!

Line Rider 2: Unbound
Link's Crossbow Training

Comment: It is a light gun game inspired on Twilight Princess, it is great.

Mad Dog McCree: Gunslinger Pack
Mad World

Comment: A pretty violent and bloody action hack and slash game by Platinum Games, one of the interesting features for the game is the fact that most graphics are only on black, white and red colors, the game kinda flopped but it spawn a sequel for HD consoles named "Anarchy Reigns".

Manhunt 2

Comment: A pretty controversial and violent game by Rockstar Games about killing and torturing people, the fact that this game was available for a Nintendo console and the Wii from all consoles available is something that will never stop being interesting.

Marble Saga: Kororinpa
Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games

Comment: Mario and Sonic finally make a crossover game, it is a minigame collection but is fine, the minigames include a realistic version of the events and some include a fantasy setting making them more interesting.

Mario Kart Wii

Comment: Other great entry for Nintendo classic karting game, if your Wii is modded you can play it again online with friends and install mods with new tracks, curiously this game is still selling brand new copies by Nintendo, why? I have no idea.

Mario Party 8
Mario Party 9
Mario Sports Mix
Mario Strikers Charged

Comment: A great soccer game with Mario and friends, it is also available online again if your Wii is modded, the game is also pretty edgy something interesting considering how Nintendo protect Mario from taking risks nowadays.

Mario Super Sluggers
Martian Panic
Medal of Honor: Heroes 2
Medal of Honor: Vanguard
Mercury Meltdown Revolution
Metal Slug Anthology

Comment: It includes 7 Metal Slug games, the franchise is fun.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
Metroid Prime Trilogy
Metroid: Other M

Comment: The game that killed the franchise, the story is full of plotholes, inconsistencies, narrative errors and it took elements from the Metroid manga that like you could guess were never traslated into english by Nintendo so most fans could don't know about them, it also want to pull apart the Metroid Prime games from the canon and the portraying of Samus was heavily criticized, the game also didn't sold as well Nintendo was hoping so it is the reason because Metroid was shelved for years, anyway the gameplay is like a 3D Metroid game with soft fps elements and some stuff that feels taken from Ninja Gaiden 3D games, I remember that a forum I used to visit always had people discussing about if this game was good or bad, I think it was fine, but I am more interesed about your own opinion and what you thought.

Monkey Mischief! Party Time

Comment: No I don't think it is good, indeed I am 80% sure it is shovelware but I can't stop finding hilarious that the game has a label mentioning "Designed exclusively for Wii" like if other generic party game but with Monkeys is what Wii users wanted for tye console haha

...
...
...

Or maybe they actually wanted it?

Monster Hunter Tri

Comment: I don't care about MH, but the franchise is a solid hunting game and more stuff I can't describe because I haven't played the games at all, it also sell a lot of copies and saved Capcom from the rope, at the time a lot of people loved it and helped making the franchise more popular overseas.

Monster Lab
Monster Mayhem: Build and Battle
Mortal Kombat: Armageddon

Comment: Because Midway was close to... emm close their doors, this was an attemp for making the ultimate Mortal Kombat game and put an end to the story, the game also includes a lot of content for a fighting game, you don't believe me? The game has ALL playable MK characters for the franchise at the time, an editor for making your own fighter with weapons, minigames, a story mode that is actually an action beat em up game and more stuff, the game is good, and fortunately the franchise was saved from the rope even if it needed a reboot because this one ended everything.

Namco Museum Megamix
Namco Museum Remix

Comment: Both games are a collection of Namco games, but they also included "remix" versions of some games that feel pretty much like standalone budget title games, for some reason some journos were pretty rude with the enhanced version of the collection, make the difference don't become other scummy player!

Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek
Naruto Shippuden: Clash of Ninja Revolution III

Need for Speed: Carbon
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit
Need for Speed: Nitro

Nickelodeon iCarly

Comment: This game is only here because there is shovelware, cash-grabs and then there is this thing, time changes because nowadays people actually think a game with 2-3 years development and 40$ tagline is a cash-grab when games like this one were made the quickest possible at 60$ with the sole purpose of scam people that don't know anything about games lol yes, I am salty, thank you for asking lol modern gaming sucks!!

Nights: Journey of Dreams

Comment: It is a sequel to Sega's classic game for Sega Saturn, it is a good game.

Ninja Reflex

Comment: It is only here because I have the vague memory it was decent, maybe I am wrong, it is like a simple action game but with ninjas and curiously published by Electronic Arts.

Ninjabread Man

Comment: This game is pretty hated and while I don't consider it THAT bad I don't think it is even decent either, what make it interesting is that the original plans for this game were a reboot of the Zool franchise but in 3D, what happened? The guy that requested the game saw the prototype, he obviously noted the poor quality and left the project the quickest possible, so the game was revamped into Ninjabread Man, what is worse is that this game was slighty modified with new graphics for the sole purpose of spawn three "different" games, dude, dude...!

Pac-Man Party

Pajama Sam: Don't Fear the Dark
Pandora's Tower: An action rpg game with a romantic drama story, at the time the game was part of a campaign with the objective of traslate three sought RPG games, other one was The Last Story but I don't remember the third one, I think it was Xenoblade Chronicles.

Pikmin 2

Comment: A port of the game with motion controllers, it also includes more languages, perfect for people like me that have issues learning and understanding english (Like you could have noted reading this thread)

Pitfall: The Big Adventure

Comment: It is not a new game, it is Pitfall The Lost Expedition but with a new misleading cover and a new game, the only clear difference from the Gamecube version is that this time the game has motion controllers, I can't stop thinking they tried to scam someone making him/her feel this was a new game.

Pizza Delivery Boy

Comment: The game is a Crazy Taxi inspired game but with pizza, I would love to recommend it, but the frame-rate of the game is just absolutely terrible making it almost unplayable, a great shame.

Pokemon Battle Revolution
PokePark 2: Wonders Beyond
PokePark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure
Pop'n Music

Comment: A spinoff of Konami's pretty popular Pop'n Music franchise, It is rhythm game based on pop buttons, only 5 guys played this game and I am 3 of them, I sincerely like it and the list of music available is actually good, but I guess like always you are one with the last word.

Comment: It is one of these seek and find games, it won an award for best adventure game of 2009 by a website so... who knows, maybe this game is actually hidden gem, one never know.

Professor Heinz Wolff's Gravity
Punch-Out!!

Comment:

A reboot of Nintendo classic franchise, the music is great, the visuals too and the story is actually heart-warming, it is a great game, for some reason Nintendo don't want to make other game even if this one sold well.

Rabbids Go Home

Comment: The first standalone game of the Rabbids without Rayman, it is also a good game, the gameplay feels heavily inspired by Katamary Damacy but with platforming elements, sincerely I truly like this game and it make me laugh with the cutscenes and ideas of the rabbids.

Rampage Total Destruction

Comment: The ultimate Rampage game, includes a lot of stuff and more than 15 playable characters, it also includes some classic games for the franchise as unlockeables.

Rango

Raving Rabbids Travel in Time

Comment: Other party game with the Rabbids, what make this one interesting is that it has a small open world and some minigames are also platforming levels, so I consider this a hybrid between a minigame collection and platforming game, the game also has a lot of other minigames and it feels like Ubisoft tried their best for making a good game, it even includes a small version of Just Dance and online mode, for everything it is a good package.

Rayman Origins

Comment: After the rabbids literally became more famous and popular than him, Rayman finally had another game, it is a 2D game with pretty impressive hand-drawn graphics, level design and music, but if I am sincere with you I think you are better playing the 40 of 60 levels of this game with Rayman Legends because the gameplay is just way better.

I am sorry, Kris...

Rayman: Raving Rabbids

Comment: The original idea was a 3D game but Ubisoft changed their minds for a minigame collection because they thought it was a better concept for the Wii hardware, the game also started the trending of minigames collections for the Wii because this one was so popular, everyone wanted a bit of the dough, anyway game is good, and unlike most minigame collection this is one that I can call a game and likeable, it also includes a mode with real life songs sang by the Rabbids and a light-gun mode that like you should know at this point is a genre that I love.

Rayman: Raving Rabbids - TV Party

Comment: A third game with Rayman and the Rabbids, this time the Rabbids are protagonists and the idea is toying and annoying Rayman for a week, the cutscenes of the game are pretty hilarious and the minigames are based on tv shows, if you wonder, I like the rabbids, but don't overthink it, I just think they are silly, somehow adorable and make me laugh with their occurrences and gibberish, something that I take with a smile.

Rayman: Raving Rabbids 2

Comment: Sincerely I haven't played this one but I assume is more of the same but still likeable.

Ready 2 Rumble: Revolution
Real Heroes: Firefighter

Comment: I don't think it is great but the game don't take itself seriously so I think it is worth even if it is just for a couple laughs.

Rebel Raiders: Operation Nighthawk
Red Steel

Comment: This one was the first game announced for the Wii, I haven't played it but reception is kinda mixed but still mostly positive, it is a fps game with a sword mechanic.

Red Steel 2

Comment: The sequel had a better reception  overall and it is most of the time labeled as a hidden gem for the console, the problem, though? It sold pretty poorly, sometimes making a better game doesn't mean getting the dough.

Reel Fishing: Angler's Dream
Reload
Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition

Comment: At the time it was the best port of the game, it included the best graphics from the Gamecube version, frame rate and the extra content for the PS2 version, also the motion controllers actually had sense with the game.

Nowadays you can play Resident Evil 4 pretty most in all modern consoles available.

Comment: It is based on a comic, the game is a third person shooter that is actually decent, it has a HD version for modern consoles.

Roogoo: Twisted Towers
Rooms: The Main Building
Rubik's World
Rune Factory: Frontier

Comment: The game is a remake of the first game incluiding new characters, lore and more stuff, the game itself is Harvest Moon but with an action rpg mode, I like the design of the characters because they have too many details it looks actually cool.

Rune Factory Tides of Destiny

Comment: A sequel, the main gimmick is that the soul of a boy and a girl are attached, so you can play with both characters.

Comment: The franchise were good platforming games that spawn like you can see a lot of sequels and Spyro was also invited to the party with a redesign, maybe the problem of the game is that you can't play it if you don't use the portal and at least one of the included figures.

If you wonder what happened to the franchise, it started selling not that good and it got the rope.

Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing

Comment: A racing game with Sonic and other Sega franchises, they went crazy with the Sega characters and the game includes some guys that didn't had any reference in a videogame since the 90s, It is a pretty good, this version includes the Miis as playable characters, the Xbox 360 includes Banjo-Kazooie.

Sonic and the Black Knight

Comment: The game is a big improvement from Secret Rings, this time Sonic is recruited by a magiciant for defeat a crazy with power King Arthur, the game has multiple references to the original story with some obviously changes, the game is Sonic gameplay with a soft hack and slash element, sincerely when you learn to play it, the game become a solid concept, and it includes good design decision that nobody mention.

The game also has a good story with interesting subjects like understand that everything has an end, something than more people need to accept in their lifes.

Sonic and the Secret Rings

Comment: Because Sonic is cursed the game has pretty rude comments because like always people is nasty when talking about stuff they don't like, frankly I don't think the game is that hard to learn to play and most of the game the motion controllers work, but considering the pretty poor reception than motion controllers has nowadays for pretty much everything, it is not hard to understand why the modern reception for this game is not pretty positive, but ummm.... sorry, I like this game.

Sonic Colors

Comment: A boost Sonic game but pretty much smaller in everything, the new gimmick is about small creatures named Wisps that help Sonic with new skills for resolve puzzle, reach new places and more, the game was pretty loved back then, sold well and even won some prizes, nowadays the reception is more negative, it's for reasons like this that we can't have nice things.

Sonic Unleashed

Comment: The game is not similar to the HD version, the gameplay is more similar to the Sonic Adventure game but more stiff and with a mechanic for making Sonic run faster for a couple seconds, sincerely it is a good game, but if you want to play the real version of the game you are better playing it on Xbox One or Xbox Series X.

Soulcalibur Legends

Comment: It is a hack and slash spinoff of the classic fighting franchise for Namco.

Comment: A racing game with Yugioh, the objective is using the cards for improve your bike, fight the opponents and get the first place, the game is better than expected and I think it actually quite addictive.

Zoo Hospital

Comment: Trauma Center but with animals.

ZhuZhu Pets Featuring the Wild Bunch

Comment: It is based on a web flash game at the time, considering the lot of shovelware Activision had no problems publishing on the console this game is an okay 2D platformer about getting first to the goal, though, I don't consider more than okay so I certainly couldn't recommend buying it but it is included here if you are curious and want to burn a couple hours with it.

Zack & Wiki Quest for Barbaros' Treasure.

Comment: It is a pretty good point and click game by Capcom for the console with truly charming characters and a smart usage for the Wiimote, but it sold poorly because someone at Capcom had the "brilliant" idea of releasing the game the same week that Super Mario Galaxy, the failure of the game actually made that Capcom didn't want to support the console with serious games for a couple years.
