Top Ten: Overlooked Wii Games

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

GoldenEye 007 (Wii) ScreenshotThe Rabbids took the world by storm with their series of adequate minigame collections, but the time had finally come for them to get their own, real adventure. This came in the form of Rabbids Go Home, a third person, platforming, item collecting, shopping cart pushing, comedic adventure. The game was very unique, as your goal was to, as a Rabbid, travel across the globe to pick up various items to bring back to your home and stack on top of each other in the hopes of reaching the moon. The most engaging part of the experience was watching your giant pile growing bigger and bigger until it finally reached its lofty goals. The gameplay felt new, the graphics were crisp, and the Rabbids were funny. One of the best parts of the game was the deep Rabbid creation mode that let users create a Rabbid character to resemble almost anything they wanted. Ubisoft took advantage of this powerful tool by making a Rabbids Channel, which hosted contests to see who could create the best pirate Rabbid, Ninja Rabbid, or pretty much anything else you can think of. It was a good game that seemed to not have performed entirely well, as it appears to be their last solo adventure. Which is sad, as it could have been a great new franchise in the admittedly barren platforming genre.

    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.
