Picking the best Nintendo Wii Games for Nintendo’s best selling console might be a tricky task for some people, but I played this console day-in, day-out for years.
The Nintendo Wii was the ultimate multiplayer console, championing the Nintendo couch co-op spirit with a new active way to play. Ditching the standard controller and shipping a remote control that could swing, punch, shoot, and bowl; a classic forward-thinking Nintendo move!
Back when the Wii came out, the console sold faster than anyone could have anticipated. I had to ring round stores every morning for weeks to find out when they would be getting stock in, and eventually travelled to the next city by train just to be able to buy one!
Yep, this console played a huge part in my life, and I’ve got some incredible memories from playing all of the games below and more. If you’ve just picked up a Wii for the first time, then you’ve got a lot to look forward to.
Check out the best games for the console as well as lots of juicy facts and figures below!
Picking The Best Nintendo Wii Games!
When Was The Nintendo Wii Released?
November 19, 2006.
Yep, it’s just over 14 years to the day as I write this article that the Nintendo Wii first arrived in our lives. In some ways, it only feels like yesterday!
How Many Nintendo Wii Consoles Have Been Sold?
101.63 million units.
The Nintendo Wii is the most popular Nintendo home console of all time. It beat the PS3 and the Xbox 360 by about 24 million units.
The most popular Nintendo console (home and handheld) is the Nintendo DS, selling 154.02 million units, just 860,000 less than the PS2.
How Many Nintendo Wii Games Are There?
1546 Wii games have been made over the console’s lifetime.
The most recent came in 2020 with Just Dance 2020 arriving on shelves. The Wii still has a lot of active fans who play religiously, and the Just Dance developers say that it’s still a lucrative console for them!
Which Games Launched With The Nintendo Wii?
26 games launched with the Nintendo Wii, three of which I have included in the list below. Other notable launch titles include Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam, Call of Duty 3, and Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz.
What Are The Best Nintendo Wii Games?
I’ve made a list of 25 of the Best Nintendo Wii games that I’ve played throughout my life below. Many of them have been re-released as ‘Nintendo Select’s titles, so lots of other people obviously share my opinion too!
How Do I Buy Nintendo Wii Games?
Most of the Best Nintendo Wii games are second-hand, though some people will have bought copies and kept them sealed or in mint condition.
By clicking the title of each section, pictures, the ‘Buy Here’ button, or the name of the game in the text, you will be virtually transported to an official buying page for the game that you are looking at.
The same applies for other hyperlinked games for other consoles that might crop up through the article too!
What a way to start off this list of the best Nintendo Wii games! Xenoblade Chronicles is an enormous open-world RPG adventure that fans of Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy will go absolutely berserk over!
Before Breath of the Wild arrived on the scene, Xenoblade Chronicles was the biggest open-world title on any Nintendo console. It’s the first in the Xenoblade Chronicles series and features some of the biggest monsters and gnarliest battles of any Wii game.
If exploring and collecting games are your bag, then this is the Wii title for you. Players can move through the richly textured world using the Wii Nunchuck Controller and Wiimote.
Side quests and enemies are hiding in every corner, and the game even has a day and night system that alters item availability, enemies, and other important factors like abilities and powers.
Xenoblade Chronicles makes use of the standard RPG battle view mode but differs from other titles with a real-time battle control system. It’s immersive, engaging, and one of the best open world titles that I’ve ever played.
Oh, and the weapons are huge too!
Next up is an action role playing title of a very different design though is every bit as exciting to play.
Many of our readers may well have finished Paper Mario: Origami King recently. Well, Super Paper Mario has all of the same fun and frolics as the Nintendo Switch offering with Mario, Luigi and co. working together to obtain Pure Hearts.
This is the third title in the Paper Mario series and, in a change from normal proceedings, Bowser isn’t the game’s antagonist. Players are fighting to stop a guy called Count Bleck from destroying the universe, assumably by paper-cutting him into submission
A lot of people have had mixed feelings over the turn-based battle system in Origami King. Super Paper Mario doesn’t use the same system, so you might want to go back and revisit this title if you’re not a fan of the new game.
Pazza Mazza’s Wii adventure is mainly viewed from a 2D side-scroller persepctive with some 3D areas revealing hidden secrets that would otherwise have been unreachable. The gameplay and storyline is superb; it’s a Mario title, after all!
Do yourself a favour and check out the best selling Paper Mario title of all time; you won’t be dissapointed.
Everyone’s favourite limbless wonder takes the Number 23 spot on our list of the best Nintendo Wii Games of all time.
For me, Rayman titles are right up there with Mario and Sonic titles as some of the best platform games ever made, and Rayman Origins is a must-have game for any Wii collection.
When Origins was released, critics and gamers alike instantly fell in love with the graphics and Rayman’s trademark sense of game humour. The side-scrolling levels stay true to the original Rayman and provide up to four players with a captivating adventure.
So what is our floating-footed hero up to in the fourth instalment of his series.? Well, Rayman, Globox, and two Teensies (who obviously aren’t important enough to be named) have banded together to fight Darktoons that have wrought havoc through the Glade of Dreams.
As with other Rayman titles, you must rescue Electoons and pick up new abilities along the way if you want to progress. There is plenty of collecting and enemy-stomping action for players to sink their teeth into, along with puzzles to test that grey matter.
The Wii version has been rated highest out of all the major console ports, so grab a copy and try the best of the best!
Every Mario Tennis game has brought immense fun to gamers all over the globe, and Mario Power Tennis is certainly no exception.
Ok, so we all know which the best tennis game is for the Nintendo Wii, but Mario Power Tennis provides a nice alternative by swapping Mii characters with some of your favourite Mushroom Kingdom faces.
Squaring off in a doubles match against Wario and Waluigi never gets old, and the courts are all nicely portrayed along with camoes from other Mario characters watching from the sidelines.
If any readers have played Mario Power Tennis for the Gamecube, then this title is virtually the same. The main difference is the inclusion of the Wii Motion Control system, giving users the ability to swing Mario’s tennis arm rather than mashing buttons.
There are 18 different characters to choose from including the unusual tennis opponent Petey Piranha. Play on a Luigi’s Mansion-themed court or try your luck on the beaches of Isle Delfino.
Each player has a power shot that they can use, hence the name of the game. The format is similar to Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour and incredibly intuitive for first time gamers.
Pikmin 2 is a game that infuriated me no end, which shows that it certainly had an effect on me. Any game that can make you shout and curse yet still come back for more time and time again is a special one, which is why Pikmin 2 deserves a spot in our list of the best Nintendo Wii games of all time.
Like the original game, Pikmin 2 sees you controlling Captain Olimar as he explores an unknown planet using Pikmin to do his bidding. This time, Olimar is joined by another spaceman called Louie, and they can take Pikmin around separately as they look for treasure.
When I say treasure, I mean old boots and junk that other humans have disposed of.
But what the heck are Pikmin, I can hear some of our readers shouting? Well, Pikmin are little microscopic plant people that are coloured based on their ability. Red Pikmin can walk through fire, blue ones don’t drown, Yellow Pikmin don’t get electrocuted, etc.
Olimar can throw Pikmin to retrieve items or send them into battle against enemies. The overworld in Pikmin 2 has fewer enemies than the original game, leaving you to explore and experience the game without as much peril.
If puzzle and strategy games are what you usually go for, then you can’t go wrong with Pikmin 2.
Next up on our list of the best Nintendo Wii games is Need for Speed Carbon, a high-speed racing game where the cops are definitely not on your side.
Carbon is the 10th Need for Speed title in the series, which shows that gamers seriously love this franchise. The gameplay revolves around illegal street races and battling rival gangs for driving glory.
It’s a little like the Fast and Furious films, except with a Wii control and you playing in your pyjamas.
One of the best bits about Need for Speed games is the customisation options. My dad used to spend hours choosing the right colours and decals on his cars, only to unlock new features and go back to the drawing board all over again.
While Carbon doesn’t play on the police chase feature as much as other titles in the series, it’s still a great game and has a cracking career mode to play through.
And of course, the multiplayer was amazing, providing a more mature racing experience for anyone kidding themselves that Mario Kart is for kids.
I’m still not sure why they needed to call this game Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition as opposed to just Resident Evil 4. It’s clearly a Wii game, and we understand that the Wii has the whole Wiimote thing going on already!
Anyway, rant over. Resident Evil 4 is an epic title and one that works really well with the Wiimote and Nunchuck combination. You could always use the Wii Zapper peripheral for those uber-realistic zombie-slaying feels.
The Wiimote acts as a gun pointer in this game, shooting wherever you point the remote on the screen. The motion controls also come into play when you are slashing zombies with Leon’s knife which adds a nice touch.
Resident Evil 4 differs from the other titles due to the cool new ‘over the shoulder’ shooting view when gunning down undead cretins. This title is less focused on survival/horror elements as in the previous Racoon City titles and concentrates on more action-filled gunfights..
The villagers in Resident Evil 4 are much smarter too. They can work together to try and stop you, wielding weapons and throwing projectiles in their mission to eat you alive. Like Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow, enemies actually respond according to where you shoot them.
Still, If you want my advice, I’d aim for the brain and have done with it.
To say that this title was only supposed to be a GameCube release only, it’s done pretty well on multiple consoles selling over 10-million copies!
Fans of the PS4 game Ghosts of Tsushima will enjoy the samurai elements of this game immensely, especially as you can hack, slash, and parry using the Wiimote as your sword! Players can switch between wielding a sword and gun as they battle their way through the game’s levels.
One of the best bits about Red Steel 2 is that you can fight up to six people at once on screen. Sometimes, however, it can be a bit Agent Smith Vs Neo, with tonnes of enemies queueing up to have a go at you!
Unlike the previous Red Steel game, Red Steel 2 has a bit of an Ōkami feel about it which I’m a huge fan of. It’s less brutal and gory too, with enemies fading away like a cross between Voldermort in the final Harry Potter film and the enemies on Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker.
You play as the last surviving member of the Kusagari Clan, a fighter who must retrieve his sword from some evil lads who tried to drag him across the desert while tied to a motorbike!
There’s a strong mix of Eastern and Western culture in Red Steel 2, and I love everything from the level designs to the intricate details of the characters.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was always going to feature in our list of the best Nintendo Wii games because of the Wii Motion Controls. Wielding a katana is one thing, but using your Wiimote to swing a lightsaber around is another thing entirely!
If you’ve always wanted to use a lightsaber but have been mortally wounded by the fact that they aren’t real, then this is the game for you. Thrust and jab your Nunchuck to use Force powers with your left hand and wield your lightsaber with your right; it’s the stuff that dreams were made of!
This title has its own place between the first two series in the Star Wars timeline, not in the order that they came out. It follows Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, Star Killer, as he tracks down and destroys the remaining Jedi’s left after the Jedi purge.
Well, that’s what’s supposed to happen, but ol’ Killer starts to question whether he’s doing the right thing (spoiler alert; he’s not) and turns against the Empire.
Look; I don’t need to sell this to you. If you’re a Star Wars fan, then you should definitely buy it. It lets you use the Force, for crying out loud!
Up next in our list of the best Nintendo Wii games is one of my favourite multiplayer games of all time; Wario Ware: Smooth Moves.
How best to describe this game for someone who has never played it before… ? Well, it’s essentially a boatload of minigames that each last around 3-5 seconds. They’re all mad, sometimes bordering on insane, and you have to compete against your mates or the computer to get the most points.
Wario has ditched his yellow plumbers outfit in exchange for some cool biker duds, and he’s brought a bunch of friends along for the ride.
My mates and I spent hours on this game, wielding the Wiimote in all manners to try and come out victorious at the end of the round. With different modes to choose from based on various characters and tonnes of minigames to play through, this is a game that you’ll never get tired of.
Nintendo sure knows how to do couch co-op games well, and the Wii was a console that certainly brought people together. If you want a change from slugging baseballs or skiiing down a slope, then give Smooth Moves a try.
We’ve got a trio of the best Mario multiplayer games coming up next! First up is Mario Strikers Charged, a mad Nintendo take on a football match with all of the items you might expect from Mario Kart and more besides making an appearance
It’s the follow on title from Mario Smash Football, or Super Mario Strikers on the GameCube, the name of which will differ depending on your region. It’s a game that I loved playing but would regularly get thrashed at by my mates.
Still, it’s an enjoyable game and one that you can play with friends next to you or not. Thanks to the WiFi connectivity, you can actually play other users all over the world.
At least they won’t be able to see or hear you cursing when you lose.
The pitches on Mario Strikers Charged all have various elements that make play more lively or, in most cases, more difficult, There are obstacles to tackle and lots of items to either collect or avoid as you try to go for goal.
Team captains can perform a Super Strike, which is kind of like the Super Smash move in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The keeper doesn’t stand a chance when one of these is belting towards the net!
Mario Strikers Charged is a bit of a free-for-all, but that’s why we love it. Any game where you might get flattened by a Chain Chomp is a winner in my book!
Everyone loves a Mario Party game. It’s a fact, and Mario Party 8 has some superb minigames that the whole family can enjoy together.
The only thing that ground my gears about this game was the fact that the main mode never seemed to go into 16:9 widescreen and always stayed in 4:3. Still, once you get past that, it’s a cracking title and one that is jam-packed full of Mario Party madness.
It obviously didnt’ bother that many people, as Mario Party 8 is the 11th best selling title for the console with 8.85-million copies sold!
Mario Party 8 sees players moving through different boards as they collect coins and try to buy stars. The boards are introduced and compered by MC Ballyhoo and his weird talking hat that spouts out coins…
… I could do with one of those!
Lots of your favourite Mushroom Kingdom faces appear as playable characters in this game, though it’s the minigames that make Mario Party 8 such a huge success.
At the end of every round is a game where players can compete for coins. They’re not as mad as Wario Ware and require a little bit more skill, but they are just as addictive!
The last title in this Mario medley (don’t worry, there will be more) is Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games London 2012.
Once bitter console rivals, Mario and Sonic put their differences aside back in 2008 when they co-hosted their first Olympic Games title. For those who haven’t played one of these games before, they’re a little like Wii Sports with Nintendo and Sega characters competing in Olympic sports.
Seeing Bowser tackle a canoe sprint or Eggman show-jumping is something else, and Sonic could certainly give Usain Bolt a run for his money!
Why is London 2012 my favourite edition? I guess it was just the most popular at the time because of the Olympics being in the UK. All my friends had copies too, and we’d play it incessantly when we went to each others houses.
This is another great game if you want your kids to exercise without them knowing it. The sprinting leaves you feeling knackered afterwards, especially if you’ve done about 20 in a row!
This is a no brainer for large family get-togethers or if you and your mates are revisiting the delights of couch co-op gaming.
One of the best N64 games returns with an updated version for the Nintendo Wii. Goldeneye 007 isn’t a direct remake of the N64 game, but it’s still a great reimagining of the old Nintendo classic and follows the same basic storyline as the original.
Let’s get the negatives out of the way first. The bond character looks and sounds more like Daniel Craig than Pierce Brosnan. The appearance of some characters have also been modified, and some have been omitted entirely. The plot has also been changed to match Daniel Craig’s movies rather than Brosnan’s iconic outing.
So it’s not the same Goldeneye game, but that’s why it’s sitting at Number 12 on our list of the best Nintendo Wii games instead of at Number 5. Still, it’s a Bond game and a great one at that.
It’s been modernised to fall in line with other first-person spy shooters of the time, as well as adding an online multiplayer, a feature that many other titles in the genre have. Instead of a watch to scan documents, Bond now has a phone too.
Such a sell out!
The multiplayer still boasts all of the features that made this game so great on the N64, however. Play split-screen or online using the Wii Zapper, a GameCube Controller, the Classic Controller Pro, or your Wiimote and Nunchuck set-up.
Next up on our list of the best Nintendo Wii games is Wii Fit, the 8th best selling game of all time for any console with 43,800,000 copies sold!
Nintendo perfectly executed the active play dream with the Wii, and Wii Fit and the accompanying Wii Balance Board added a whole new way to exercise… or play… exerplay? Playercise?
You get the idea!
The Wii Balance Board is pressure sensitive, meaning that it can sense how much pressure you exert with one or both of your feet at the same time. This meant that you could use it for everything from step aerobics to ski slaloming on the Mii games.
I’m going to be honest; I used this more for flapping like a bird or ski jumping, though there were times where I did a bit of plank or tried my hand at some yoga.
Either way, it was way more than a gimmick. This game and accessory combo was a huge success for Ninty and yet another example of why the Wii was close to becoming the best selling home console of all time!
Kirby’s Epic Yarn has all the looks of a cutesy platform game but boasts a mature play style that keeps adults hooked as well as young gamers.
Some readers out there might recognise this style from Yoshi’s Wooly World for the Wii U, but Kirby’s Epic Yarn was the first Nintendo title to opt for a fabric-textured world filled with knitted characters.
If you have a partner or friend who doesn’t like games but loves arts and crafts, then this is the perfect title to bring them into the Nintendo fold. Kirby must help Prince Fluff by collecting magical yarn in order to stitch Patch Land back together.
It’s a knitting-pattern-lovers dream come true.
Kirby fans might be surprised to find that the pink crusader can’t actually inhale enemies in this game. I suppose that’s because he’s made of yarn and doesn’t technically have any innards.
Instead of stealing enemies abilities like in Smash Bros, Kirby can turn into other objects such as a tank or a submarine in order to progress through the many levels. It’s fun, it’s colourful, and it’s a Kirby game, which means it’s perfection from start to finish.
Any fans of the best SNES games will be all too familiar with this next entry on our list.
Expect all of the same vine-swinging and rhino-riding action as the first Donkey Kong Country game, as well as Donkey and Diddy teaming up to reclaim their banana hoard.
Donkey Kong Country Returns does away with the old pre-rendered graphics of the original title and brings in beautifully textured levels that add depth via faded backgrounds.
Players still have to search for the golden KONG letters hidden throughout each level, and there’s also a mine cart riding level to tackle.
If you loved Donkey Kong 64 but lost interest through the Donkey Konga era, then you’ll be over the moon with Donkey Kong Country Returns. It’s a bonafide DK home console adventure, just like the good old days!
Up next in our list of the best Nintendo Wii games is Super Mario Galaxy 2, Mario’s second home console platform adventure for the Wii.
Some of you might be wondering where the first Super Mario Galaxy title is in this list. Well, it’s on it’s way, and the fact is that I just prefer the original adventure to the sequel.
Still, that doesn’t mean that Super Mario Galaxy 2 doesn’t have its merits. It’s still an unbelievable game, and it’s got Yoshi in it too!
What more could a Nintendoid want!
This game series certainly brought about the idea of Super Mario Odyssey and shares many similarities with its successor. In Galaxy 2, Mario hops through various galaxies as he searches for Power Stars in a bid to not only save the universe, but also, and you guessed it, save Peach from Bowser.
That guy just can’t take no for an answer!
In many ways, this game is an upgrade to the original Super Mario Galaxy and adds to the winning formula, but it’s a lot more difficult and less enjoyable to play, in my opnion.
Still, if you’re a die-hard Mario fan, then you’ll want this in your collection for sure.
You didn’t think we were going to have a list of the best Nintendo Wii games without Super Smash Bros. Brawl in it, did you?
It’s a Smash Bros title, which means you can expect button-mashing mayhem and tense multiplayer battles aplenty. This version has 39 playable characters, which was the most of any Smash Bros game at the time too.
I also like how characters such as Link and Samus have been upgraded too, appearing more like their Wii game variants rather than using classic designs from different consoles.
My one complaint with Super Smash Bros. Brawl was the Wiimote itself, but thankfully, gamers could use other controllers to get into the Smash action. You just can’t beat custom GameCube controllers when it comes to laying the Smash-down on Kirby and Mario!
Oh, and let’s not forget the music on this game! Over 38 composers clubbed together to work on the score for this title. Every song adds to the tension of the battle, with many themes from the different levels being recreated in true Smash Bros-style.
If you like fighting games, Nintendo characters, and beating your friends at games, then this is a title you need.
This is a bit of a ‘3 for the price of 1’ entry in our list of the best Nintendo Wii games. By rights, I should have chosen Metroid Prime 3: Corruption for the Number 6 spot, but I figured all three games are just as good as each other, and I’m sticking by my choice.
It follows bad-ass heroine and galactic bounty hunter Samus Aran, one of the coolest characters in the Nintendo Franchise and a go-to cosplay character for gamers around the globe.
All of the Metroid games in this trilogy are viewed from a first-person perspective, with players just seeing the end of Samus’s plasma cannon on the screen as she moves through gloomy spaceships and creepy planets.
Samus can pick up extra abilities and suit upgrades as she progresses, using her trademark bombs and grappling hook to uncover more secrets and hidden areas.
These are three games that you will find seriously hard to put down and ones that I have frequently replayed over the years. Samus is right up there with Link and Mario as Nintendo’s main players, and I’m looking forward to hearing more news about Metroid Prime 4 for the Nintendo Switch 2!
The Wii gave us not one, but two Zelda games! The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was an absolute blinder of a game, with the Motion Plus Controls giving you total control over Link’s weapons like never before.
Slashing Bokoblins and angling your slices to kill Deku Babas was incredible, and using the Nunchuck to knock back enemies made you feel as though you were right there wearing a green tunic with him!
The one thing that I didn’t like about these controls was how difficult it was to swim and fly with them. That’s why Skyward Sword takes the Number 5 slot in our list, though this was a tough decision as I’m an enormous Zelda fan!
For those of you that haven’t played Skyward Sword before, it’s an epic adventure. It also brought some new weaponry into Link’s arsenal such as the Hook Beetle, the Digging Mitts, and the Sailcloth.
The Sailcloth would go on to become one of the most used items in Breath of the Wild in the form of the Glider. Man, I love that thing!
If you’re a Zelda fan, then you’re not going to want to miss this title out of your Wii collection. I loved it, but there is another Zelda Wii game that I just loved more!
Up next in our list of the best Nintendo Wii games is a title that everyone will have played before. It’s also the 12th best selling game of all time with 37,380,000 copies sold!
Now that’s impressive!
Mario Kart Wii revolutionised the series by allowing us to actually turn our controllers to move karts and bikes. The courses are all incredibly exciting to play through and are jam-packed with the twists, turns, items, and hazards that make Mario Kart games so damn addictive.
Once again, this is a title that anyone can pick up and play without having any previous gaming experience. You can have your granny playing your nephew or your Dad playing your baby sister without having to explain anything more than ‘go, break, and fire’.
The addition of bikes into the Mario Kart series was a nice touch too, as was the jump boost you could use while going over ramps.
And let’s not forget the Mario Kart Wii Wheel accessories themselves. Who would have thought that pieces of white plastic would cause so many scrambles when playing this game!
Note to readers – buy enough of these to go around. I had three wheels and four controllers, which isn’t a good mix when it comes to getting your mates round for a multiplayer sesh.
Mario fans can breathe a sigh of relief now that the original Super Mario Galaxy has finally arrived in our list of the best Nintendo Wii games! As I said earlier, I just preferred this game as it wasn’t as difficult and felt totally different to Super Mario Sunshine.
Super Mario Galaxy 2 was great, but it wasn’t new and fresh. The original game blew me away, and I certainly enjoyed replaying it for my Super Mario 3D All-Stars review!
As the third 3D Super Mario game in the series, Super Mario Galaxy had to knock our socks off. It certainly didn’t dissapoint, and it was a nice to see Bowser back up to his usual tricks after a short interlude with Baby Bowser on Isle Delfino.
Mario must save Peach once again while collecting Power Stars, though this time he’s travelling around different planets in space. The gravity element adds a whole new dimension to play, with Mario sometimes appearing on the sides of planets or upside down as he runs around.
The worlds are all stunningly designed, though I suppose that you wouldn’t expect anything less from a Mario game. You can even play as Luigi once you have collected enough Power Stars!
Come on; you know it makes sense! Wii Sports is the 4th best selling game of all time over any console and the top-selling Wii game with 82,900,000 copies sold!
This game was the main selling point of the Wii, showing off what the Wiimote could really do. I spent hours playing Wii Tennis and Baseball with my mates, and we’d play Wii Bowling at every family get-together.
I’ve said it so many times throughout this article, but the Wii allowed anyone and everyone to play videogames for the first time ever. Almost everyone can point a remote at a TV, and using a Wiimote is no different.
Whether showing off on Wii Golf or punching your friend’s Mii into oblivion in the boxing ring, this game was one of the best for multiplayer madness and working up a sweat at the same time.
The thrill of getting a Home Run still feels amazing today, especially because I am terrible at baseball in real life!
If any readers need a multiplayer game and didn’t get this shipped with their Wii, then grab a copy today and feel the burn!
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is a classic Zelda adventure from start to finish and thoroughly deserves a place at the top of our best Nintendo Wii games list!
Originally meant for the GameCube, Twilight Princess was one of the first games that appeared on the Wii back in 2006. It later came out for the GameCube and was the last Nintendo-made game for the portable purple console.
The motion controls weren’t as useful as in Skyward Sword, but it didn’t matter. It didn’t need them, and while swinging Link’s sword is undoubtedly cool, I much prefer playing Zelda games without that feature.
Twilight Princess was the best selling Zelda game of all time unto BOTW came out, beating Ocarina of time by 900,000 copies It’s based many years after the events of Ocarina of Time and sits in between Majoras Mask and Four Swords in the Zelda Timeline.
This Zelda outing made a nice change from the brief foray into cell-shaded territory with Wind Waker. Hyrule looks amazing on this game, and being able to interact with people in the market town and heading back to Death Mountain again felt incredible.
It might seem a little tame compared to BOTW now, but it’s definitely one of the best ‘old style’ Zelda games that Nintendo has produced. Some of you might have even bought Twilight Princess HD for the Wii U.
Man, that game is stunning!
