With so many shooters crowding the marketplace, it’s refreshing to see Minimum take the low-fi route through Steam Early Access.

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

GameRevolution's Top 25 Wii Games

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



10. New Super Mario Bros. Wii


Nintendo's hallmark 2D platforming series made a triumphant return to consoles with New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Even after 25 some odd years, the classic gameplay of Nintendo's side-scroller is still a blast to play. With the added ability to play with up to three additional friends at a time, this game quickly became one of the best couch co-op experiences of its time. If you're a glutton for power-up suits there's also plenty of awesome to be found. Soaring through the sky with the propeller suit or sliding across the ice in the penguin getup could very well be the definition of fun.



9. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

Retro Studios blew gamers away when they revitalized the Metroid franchise by turning it into a first-person action adventure. After two entries on the GameCube, Retro rounded out the trilogy on the Wii with Corruption, which not only concluded the series in expert fashion but also made wonderful use of the Wiimote's pointer controls. In many ways, Nintendo's motion controller feels designed specifically with Metroid Prime in mind. Here's hoping we get one on the Wii U that takes it one step further with the GamePad.



8. Muramasa: The Demon Blade

Ignition Entertainment's gorgeous 2D side-scroller is an absolute must for owners of a Wii. Heck, the game jaw-dropping hand-drawn art is reason enough to purchase this game. The game was developed by Vanillaware, the same team behind the PS2 cult-classics Odin Sphere and GrimGrimoire. If the Wii's SD visuals have you down on the console, playing Muramasa will make it readily evident to you that artistic beauty can overshadow technical limitations. Oh yeah, and it's pretty fun to play too.



7. Donkey Kong Country Returns

We had to wait several years, but after a 3D collect-a-thon, a quirky rhythm-based adventure and two console generations in between, the classic 2D side-scrolling of Donkey Kong Country made its triumphant return. With Retro Studios at the helm, you don't need me to convince you that this game is supremely polished and an absolute blast to play. If you look back fondly on the days of playing as DK on your SNES, there is absolutely no reason for you not to play Donkey Kong Country Returns. Seriously, you'd be doing your inner child a serious disservice.



6. Super Smash Bros. Brawl

You know what they say, third time's a charm—but what if the first two times were also incredible? After blowing Nintendo fans away on the N64 with the original Super Smash Bros., HAL Laboratory went on to make Melee for the GameCube, which only improved the mashup brawler even more. The third entry continues the trend of astounding improvement with Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the best four-player brawler gaming currently has to offer. Heck, it was so awesome that Sony couldn't help but steal the concept.
