New Super Mario Bros. Wii

This new Mario adventure is rated as a great new game by most game websites. The classic game is updated with new challenges, stellar visuals and fun multi-player action. Some new features include two new power-ups for Mario, including a penguin suit that throws snowballs and the helicopter suit that allows Mario to be airborne for short bursts. Classic players that remember the games from their youth and new players alike will be challenged by the formidable enemies and obstacles.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

This new game is rated the best Smash Bros. yet by many gaming websites. With online and offline multi-player action, this installment is intensely satisfying. This time, you can share game replays, screenshots and custom levels with your friends. The single–player adventure mode is also very involved. Pick your favorite Nintendo character and challenge another one to a supreme battle.

Super Mario Galaxy

Released in November of 2007, this game got an almost perfect 10 rating on most game websites and is considered Mario’s greatest adventure to date. Some of the best new features include amazing level designs, vivid graphics, flawless controls and many stages with loads of stars to capture. In this new adventure, Mario is still battling Bowser, but he must collect all of the stars he finds in order to power a spaceship to rescue Princess in the center of the universe.

Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Released in November 2006, this new adventure is hailed as the greatest Zelda game yet. Some of the best features include complex puzzles, amazingly artistic graphics and a longer game time. The main character Link embarks on a journey to some familiar places, but then the game gets more exciting as he enters an alternate universe called Twilight.

Just Dance 3

This new experience is the perfect party game. Grab your friends and start rocking out to today’s greatest hits. The routines are really easy to follow and feature classic moves like the jive bunny and air guitar. Most gaming websites claim this version is even sillier and more insanely entertaining than the previous versions.

Donkey Kong Country Returns

Most gaming websites rate this new Donkey Kong adventure at a 8 out of 10. Released in November 2010, this installment features fresh level designs and many new hidden treasures to discover in each level which allows players to replay levels and never get tired of the action. This version stays true to earlier versions, but the dynamically changing levels keep you on your toes.

Mario Party 8

The 8th installment of Mario Party only received fair to mediocre reviews on most gaming sites, but the abundance of mini-games and newly invented boards make it enjoyable. This is the first version of Mario Party for the Wii, but most of the board games are the same. This version takes you to Star Carnival, where some features include using the Wii remote to swing at balls, walk a tightrope and row a boat.

Just Dance 2

Released in October 2010, the second installment of the best selling music/rhythm game got good ratings on most gaming websites. Get in shape or gather your friends to create dance crews to start epic dance battles. This version features over 45 new tracks including classic and current hits.

Wii Sports

This multi-player game is included with the Wii console. Released in November 2006, these simple sports games are easy and fun for the whole family. The games include tennis, baseball, bowling, golf and boxing. Daily fitness tests keep you coming back for more.

Wii Play

This collection of nine mini-games lacks the staying power of the sports games included in the Wii console package. Most gaming sites only rate this as a fair to mediocre game, but the introduction of Miis is a great feature. You can play each game to certain levels to unlock future games. You start off with Shooting Range, using the remote as a gun. Subsequent games increase in difficulty, including table tennis and laser hockey.
