Nintendo Wii Games Starting with Aa to Zz





Dead Space Extraction

Wii Dead Space Extraction

Bringing Dead Space to the Wii was no easy task, and it was clear from the beginning that it couldn’t just be a port of Visceral’s amazing game. Teaming up with Eurocom, the two developers brought us one of the scariest, and most fun on-rails shooters on the Wii.

Donkey Kong Country Returns

Wii Donkey Kong Country Returns

While you watch your 1-Up supply plummet to zero, at least you’ll have some gorgeous set pieces — jungles, beaches and temples — to take in, peppered with the mine carts, barrels and bananas of Donkey Kong Country’s past. Like New Super Mario Brothers Wii, Returns’ retro gameplay with a modern makeover proves to be a recipe for success.

Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Wii Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

No Nintendo console has ever launched with a Zelda game – until Wii. Drawing inspiration from one of the greatest games ever made, Ocarina of Time, this latest console-based adventure finally gave us the realistic take on Link’s world that we’d all been craving.

Punch-Out!!

Wii Punch-Out!!

Little Mac’s Nintendo career may not be as strong as some of the company’s more noteworthy characters, but he’s one tough cookie and the Wii game makes a return to his early days in the ring. The NES classic has been given new life on the current generation console with the same pattern-focused boxing action that made the series a hit on the 8-bit system.

Mario Kart

Wii MarioKart

Mario Kart is always a highlight of a Nintendo’s console lifespan, and Wii is no exception. Mario Kart Wii is a strong entry in the series, and finally took the kart racer online on a home console. The addition of bikes and tricks kept the game fresh, adding new gameplay mechanics to a series that is built largely on staying the same.

Metroid Prime Trilogy

Wii Metroid Prime Trilogy

The Metroid Prime Trilogy is more than just three great games on a single disc. Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes have been upgraded with widescreen presentation, an achievement system and, perhaps most importantly, excellent Wii pointer controls, bringing them up to date with Metroid Prime 3.

Monster Hunter Tri

Wii Monster Hunter Tri

Monster Hunter Tri is not only one of the best looking games on Wii, it’s one of the deepest. Not even counting online content, there is so much to do, explore and battle in the latest edition of this monumentally popular JRPG that you could find yourself busy for hundreds of hours. The game rewards players those who are patient, who want to explore, battle, upgrade and prepare to confront truly epic monsters.

Muramasa: The Demon Blade

Wii Muramasa: The Demon Blade

According to the very few who have actually played this sleeper game, Muramasa: The Demon Blade is as much a piece of art as it is a video game. This Marvelous Entertainment developed experience is one part role-playing game and one part old-school brawler, but most importantly it’s one of the most visually creative games to be released in Wii’s lifetime.

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

Wii No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

It’s tough to pinpoint exactly why the No More Heroes series of games are such a blast to play, but it’s probably because the simple joy of leaping in to the air and decapitating your foes with the Wii remote just never gets old. Throw in a few clever nods to ’80s era Nintendo games and you’ve got yourself one of the most clever and imaginative games on the Wii.

New Super Mario Bros

Wii New Super Mario Bros

Believe it or not, there’s a world of gamers out there who never experienced the brilliance of the original Super Mario Bros. New Super Mario Bros. Wii is Nintendo’s attempt at bringing back some of the greatest old-school experiences of its history, embracing the fun and simplicity while building on them with elements that just weren’t possible 20 years ago.

Red Steel 2

Wii Red Steel 2

Red Steel 2 is everything the first Red Steel wasn’t. It takes place in a cool cel-shaded western world where people solve their problems with guns and swords instead of talking. It was one of the first third party games to show off the Wii Motion Plus technology, allowing players to swipe their sword in nearly 1:1 motion. The game is full of style, and a healthy amount of violence.

Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition

Wii Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition

If Resident Evil 4 hadn’t previously appeared on GameCube, it could easily have topped this list as a Wii exclusive. The upgraded controls in Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition are handled expertly, and detonating the heads of cultish near-zombies is probably the most satisfying shooting experience to be had on Wii. The addition of all the bonus content from all versions of RE 4 makes this the definitive version.

Sin & Punishment: Star Successor

Wii Sin and Punishment

Star Successor is an intense and exciting game. Two kids fly through fantastic environments on other planets, shooting everything in their way and taking down giant boss monsters. It barrels along at a breakneck pace, barely giving you a chance to wipe the sweat off your Wii Remote. Developer Treasure is basically teaching a master class on how to make an on-rails shooter.

Sonic Colours

Wii Sonic Colours

Sonic fans have been hurt so many times that more often than not, we’re afraid to love again. There are only so many times Sonic can tell us that we’re the only ones for him, only to get a Shadow the Hedgehog or Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 in return – to say nothing of were-hogs. With that in mind, it’s even more shocking that Sonic Colors is a pretty magical platformer.

Super Paper Mario

Wii Super Paper Mario

Part platformer and part RPG, Super Paper Mario succeeds on both accounts. It controls tightly and uses the Wii remote in a smart manner without any waggle gimmicks. The most attractive feature, the ability to switch from 2D to 3D, is built around clever and surprisingly complex and impressive puzzles. Plus the lengthy 20+ hour adventure will keep you hooked until the end.

Super Mario Galaxy

Wii Super Mario Galaxy

The release of a Mario game is a monumental moment in the life of any Nintendo console. Super Mario Galaxy lived up to that reputation. It cleverly mixed physics and brilliant design to create a series of environments that always felt fresh and exciting. This is one of those incredible titles that anyone – Wii owner or not – should find time to play.

Super Paper Mario

Wii Super Paper Mario

Part platformer and part RPG, Super Paper Mario succeeds on both accounts. It controls tightly and uses the Wii remote in a smart manner without any waggle gimmicks. The most attractive feature, the ability to switch from 2D to 3D, is built around clever and surprisingly complex and impressive puzzles. Plus the lengthy 20+ hour adventure will keep you hooked until the end.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars

Wii Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars

A system like Wii might not seem the ideal home for an excellent and original fighting game, but that’s just what we got in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. Though half the cast would never be recognized by Americans, the energetic and accessible gameplay means anyone looking for a fun time won’t care. Plus Mega Man is actually in this game, giving Capcom fans plenty of reason to rejoice.

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure

Wii Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure

Zack & Wiki is an adventure puzzler that perfectly balances being both clever and stylish at the same time. The premise is simple enough: Help Zack and his monkey pal get treasure. Each level plays like a classic point and click adventure game, with players guiding Zack to use various items to overcome obstacles.
