Wii games: Following the debut of the latest generation consoles, including Wii U which, however, is not enjoying the same success as its predecessor, the old Nintendo Wii has become an attractive device for all those looking for excellent quality video games at affordable prices.

By now the console is less than 100 euros and its titles have prices well below those we were used to a few years ago. How about if I recommend someone to you? Despite the age, I can assure you that of Wii games there are still many valid ones.

Platform

If there is a genre in which i Wii games they are unbeatable compared to the competition, those are the platformers. A name above all? Mario. But let’s see all the must-have titles in this category:

  • Super Mario Galaxy And Super Mario Galaxy 2 – in general in the videogame world we are witnessing the creation of sequels not up to par with games that have sold so much. In the case of Mario Galaxy this is not the case at all. The first chapter of the series is a masterpiece, one of the most beautiful 3D platformers in history, the second manages to be even better with innovations in the gameplay that do not feel any déjà vu effect.
  • New Super Mario Bros Wii – him again! This other masterpiece of the platform genre perfectly follows the old adventures of Super Mario, making them more modern and sparkling. Mouth-watering 2D graphics and multiplayer mode for up to 4 players.
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns – another cornerstone of the Nintendo stable. It was in the days of the Super Nintendo that you didn’t see a Donkey Kong so funny and engaging.
  • Rayman Origins – even outside the Nintendo world there are platformers that are absolutely worth trying, one of these is Rayman Origins which boasts a stratospheric level of art and a very fun gameplay.
  • Epic Mickey – very engaging adventure featuring the legendary Mickey Mouse. Not just for children, on the contrary!

Party Game

Among the kinds of Wii games that have decreed the success of the Japanese console there are certainly the party games, those to be played in the company of many friends. Here are the ones you definitely need to try.

  • Just Dance 2014 – the quintessential dance game, it contains all the latest hits of the moment.
  • Rock Band – one of the most beautiful rhythm games in history. On the notes of the most famous rock songs in the world you have to play your guitar-controller following the rhythm. There is also a version, also unmissable, dedicated entirely to the Beatles!
  • Wii Sports Resort – a collection of sports-themed mini-games that take advantage of the Wii MotionPlus peripheral that improves the sensitivity of the Wii controller ensuring maximum enjoyment for all.
  • Wii Party – a party game full of mini-games of all kinds. Ideal for having fun with family or friends.
  • Skylanders Giant – a very original title in which collectible toys can be added to the game to create fun challenges.

Action / Adventure

Who said that there are no action titles on Wii that are as exciting as those available on other consoles? Here are a few.

  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl – a fighting game featuring all the heroes of the Nintendo world, plus Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid. Very funny played 1vs1 with friends but the single player (scrolling) advantura mode is truly spectacular.
  • Metroid Prime 3 – another chapter of a historic Nintendo saga, a space-based action game that makes the most of the Wii control system.
  • Goldeneye 007 – first person shooter dedicated to the famous James Bond film. This is an excellent remake of the eponymous title released on Nintendo 64 in the 90s.
  • Silent Hill Shattered Memories – excellent chapter of the historical horror saga. The story begins when Harry Mason wakes up after a car accident and realizes that his daughter Cheryl is missing.
  • Resident Evil 4 – excellent Wii transposition of Resident Evil 4.
  • Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 – war-themed first-person shooter. It does not have the same graphics as the version available on other platforms but the fun is guaranteed.
  • No More Heroes 2 – frenetic action title created by Goichi Suda based on combos and clashes with numerous enemies on the screen. Spectacular and well-kept graphics.
