Top Ten: Overlooked Wii Games

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

GoldenEye 007 (Wii) ScreenshotThis is an interesting addition to the list. I don’t find Dead Space: Extraction to be a particularly fantastic game, but I feel as if the effort and the ambition put into it has been overlooked. I mean, Dead Space was on Wii. Seriously, who would’ve thought that would happen? Now, mind you, I realize it was an on-rails shooter; however, that benefits my argument on its overlooked ambition. This is a story-driven rail shooter with beautiful graphics and great characters, ones who will look you in the eyes and convince you that their emotions and conversations are real, not just a lifeless, story piece going through the motions. It’s quite amazing what Eurocom has accomplished on Wii with this game, and even though the gameplay itself isn’t entirely Earth shattering (although it is pretty fun), the game is worth your attention, if not only to experience the impressive oddity at display.

    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.
