Top Ten: Overlooked Wii Games

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

GoldenEye 007 (Wii) ScreenshotThis is perhaps the least overlooked game on this list (the reason why it’s only number 10), yet an overlooked game nonetheless. It was hyped and advertised well, yet I don’t believe the final product was ever truly appreciated and written about by enough people. This was a premiere, first-person shooter exclusive (at the time) to Wii. The gameplay was solid, the graphics were great, the story and the characters (borrowing that characters-that-look-you-in-the-eye feature from the other Eurocom developed game on the list, Dead Space: Extraction) were presented well, and ultimately, the single player and online were on par, if not better in some aspects, than that of similar games on other consoles. If this truly means anything, I have played my fair share of online games on Xbox, PlayStation, you name it… but what online multiplayer game have I invested the largest amount of time to? GoldenEye 007 on Wii. Perhaps give credit to the fun Wii Remote FPS controls or the addictive GoldenEye or Golden Gun game modes, but nonetheless, it was just a solid game. If you can get your hands on this game, I would certainly suggest you give it a shot (pun unintended).

    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.
