Top Ten: Overlooked Wii Games

Dustin counts down ten Wii games you should have been playing!

GoldenEye 007 (Wii) ScreenshotYou’ve probably heard of most of these games, and heck, being great Nintendo fans, you’ve probably played a lot of them, too! However, if I had to guess which one of the games on this list the least of you have played is, I’d choose Excitebots. And boy, do I hope I am wrong. Excitebots is from Monster Games, the creators of the super-fast racer, Excite Truck. Excitebots keeps the speed, but adds a large dose of crazy. What do I mean by crazy? Well, mid-race, you’ll find yourself playing baseball, bowling, swinging from poles, throwing darts at a dartboard, and even engaging in a fleshed out game of poker. Don’t believe me? Buy the game, you’ll love it. And if by some odds there is still a community playing online, you’ll enjoy betting money on yourself and taking part in a smooth, exhilarating racing experience. If you can find this for cheap, I highly suggest you give it a shot!

    Great list! Almost makes me want to give GoldenEye another try. (I’m useless at cover shooters, but love stealth gameplay. My relationship with that particular game is complicated. :^)

    I’d like to throw out a few other under-appreciated gems:
    – Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers
    – NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams
    – Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz
    – Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure

    None of those are for everybody (as one would expect from overlooked games), but all are great in their own right. I was tempted to list Sonic and the Secret Rings too, though I’m not sure it was “overlooked” so much as some of us loved it while others can’t be happy no matter what Sonic does. (see: Lost World reviews ;^)

    At least we can still play these on Wii U and I might look at a few of these games but some (IE Silent Hill and Dead Space) they’re just not for me

    Oh, this is just a great list, really loving every single choice. I would throw A Boy and His Blob, de Blob 1 & 2, Zach & Wiki, and Spyborgs on this list, too… along with a few others. Can we just say Wii’s library in general was overlooked?

    Little King’s Story is another one which really didn’t get enough appreciation.
