GameRevolution's Top 25 Wii Games

Posted on Wednesday, December 26 @ 11:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn



15. Punch-Out!!

Fans of the NES boxing classic will find much to love about Punch-Out!! on the Wii. Not only does it make excellent use of the Wiimote and nunchuck, it also supports the Wii balance board should players opt for the full body experience. Of course, if you'd like, you can play it just like you did years ago on the NES with a traditional control scheme as well. Beloved characters like Glass Joe and King Hippo are back, so much of the retro goodness from the old stays has carried over to the Wii, providing not only a challenging experience that will please longtime fans, but also newcomers looking to join the fight.



14. Super Paper Mario

For quite a while, the Paper Mario series stuck to a pretty formulaic structure since its inception on the Nintendo 64. It wasn't until the launch of Super Paper Mario that fans got a taste of what other kinds of experiences this series has to offer. This RPG-platformer hybrid succeeds in dipping into two very different genres and making it work. The controls are tight, the puzzles are fantastic, and the ability to switch between 2D and 3D makes for some pretty incredible experiences. Those looking for a Mario game that takes things outside the box can't afford to overlook this Wii gem.



13. Wii Sports

It would practically be a crime to omit this family-friendly sports game from our list. Wii Sports will go down in history as one of the most influential games of its time. Not only did it help create a serious amount of buzz for Nintendo, it also managed to appeal to just about every demographic on planet earth. Wii Sports proved that motion controls have a place in the industry and that games can cater to an incredibly wide audience. There's no doubt that if Wii Sports hadn't launched with the console, the system wouldn't have found nearly as much success. 



12. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

If you're a fan of strategy games, there's absolutely no excuse for you to miss out on Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. Deep and engrossing gameplay? Check. Compelling narrative? Check. Classic turn-based gameplay? Check. For the longest time Nintendo refrained from bringing the Fire Emblem franchise to North America, but now that they have, it's hard to imagine a Nintendo console without it. 



11. The Last Story

Hironobu Sakaguchi, the man behind a little franchise called Final Fantasy, crafted one of the most amazing RPGs of this past generation with The Last Story. While it still looks very much like a traditional Japanese role-playing game, the new approach to combat makes it feel like a completely fresh and new experience. The story in great, the characters are memorable and the production values are top notch... for a Wii game. If you're looking for a polished RPG on the Wii that is worthy of your precious time, The Last Story is a no-brainer.
