Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2 were true masterpieces of the Nintendo Wii. Both 3D platforms gave us lots of fun, especially if we chose to complete all the tasks. 

This time, our role was to rescue Princess Peach by exploring through various galaxies.

The gameplay kept a good part of the essence of the saga, but it innovated in several aspects.

The most striking was the construction of levels, made up of planetoids that we could travel almost entirely. 

To fight our way to defeat Bowser and Bowser Jr., we were asked to collect Superstars, avoid obstacles, and know how to handle gravity in our favor.

These Wii games are highly recommended adventures that we could also enjoy in multiplayer.

2. Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Do you like fighting games? Do you love Nintendo characters? Looking to hit solo or with friends?

Brawl had lots of fun and content! It was hard to live up to what Super Smash Bros. Melee was, but this Wii installment took the podium in its own right.

It contained more than 30 characters and 41 scenarios in total, although the best was the game modes.

On the one hand, the story mode was long and well complete, with many hours of entertainment. 

On the other hand, the multiplayer allowed to customize various aspects, so that each game became unique.

Brawl was the first game in the series to include characters from non-Nintendo series: Solid Snake, from Metal Gear, and Sonic. 

With them and new additions to the roster like Pit from Kid Icarus, Lucario from Pokémon, and Ike from Fire Emblem, Super Smash Bros.

3. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess gave us one of the most serious adventures in the saga, taking advantage of the contrast between Hyrule and the Twilight Kingdom. 

Link realizes that the Twilight Kingdom is affecting Hyrule and that a mysterious character seeks to gain dominance. Accompanied by Midna, we must face the mighty enemy!

The game's dungeons were extensive, and the gameplay made good use of the unique Wii controls.

It was interesting to progress through the game, get new items like the boomerang or the claw, and explore both Hyrule and the Twilight Realm. 

The alternate world was eye-catching as it was a corrupted version of Hyrule, and because of that, we were handling a Link turned into a wolf!

This Wii game was undoubtedly another essential game for every owner of the console.

4. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption took over from the second part and gave us another awesome experience.

It was a shooter with platforming elements, puzzle-solving, and exploration. 

Samus realizes that, after fighting with numerous space pirates, an unexpected rival arises: Dark Samus.

Handling Samus felt very good, with a well-kept control and taking great advantage of the functionalities of the controls. Another notable quality was the graphics, as it was one of the best Wii games!

If you didn't get to play the previous Metroid Primes, the excellent Metroid Prime Trilogy compilation was also released on Wii. 

In addition to making some visual changes in the first two installments, it also adapts its control to the Wii controls. It's the best way to enjoy the entire game.

5. New Super Mario Bros. Wii

In addition to Super Mario Galaxy, Wii received another game in the franchise that focused on a 2D approach. New Super Mario Bros. 

New Super Mario Bros. Wii games was able to present good platform mechanics that kept the experience fresh. 

This Wii game was one of the most accessible games of this narrative, with mechanics that facilitated the advancement of each level.

The nice thing about cooperative mode was interacting with each other. It was possible to throw ourselves at each other and jump over the heads of our characters. 

Beyond the cooperative, New Super Mario Bros. Wii game included two other modes that encouraged us to compete with each other. If you had a good time playing this game together!

6. Xenoblade Chronicles

Xenoblade Chronicles was an incredible JRPG with real-time combat and an open world at our disposal to explore. 

The story focuses on a conflict between humans and machines, the fruit of a history that spans many years. And which we don't want to gut you!

The combat was very interesting, as normal attacks were carried out automatically, as long as the enemy was within range. 

Each character had their strengths, although Shulk, the game's protagonist, was the core. The visions he received allowed us to adapt our tactics to future enemy attacks. 

Xenoblade Chronicles could also be as short or long as one preferred. The number of side quests the game had was overwhelming, and several of them had an impact on the main plot.

Therefore, it was convenient to play this JRPG calmly over many weeks, spending dozens of hours on this title. Believe us; it was worth it.

7. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the best Wii game in the saga. It was placed as the first game in this franchise, chronologically speaking, and recounts the origins of both the Triforce and Master Sword. 

The world in which this Wii game is set is very striking, with a floating island and an uninhabited surface as scenarios.

History was heading us towards a double mission. On the one hand, we had to rescue Zelda, a childhood friend for this version of Link. 

On the other, it was vital to stop Ghirahim, who seeks to revive a powerful and evil being.

To accomplish both tasks, you had to explore dungeons, complete puzzles, and defeat final bosses the old-fashioned way.

In terms of gameplay, Skyward Sword continued what he started with Twilight Princess and was able to take advantage of the Wii's characteristic controls very well.

8. The Last Story

The Last Story was one of the best Wii games of all time in the category. We put ourselves in command of a group of mercenaries, led by Zael, who seek work on the island of Lazulis. 

Before long, life turns upside down when they find themselves locked in a conflict between Lazulis and the Gurak, a race that had been expelled from the same island.

The story takes a deeper nuance at various times and is accompanied by playable mechanics that enrich the experience. 

In addition to being an action RPG to use, it mixes tactical and stealth elements, so that you can assign orders to Zael's companions. 

The Last Story also allowed us to play against each other in a competitive mode, or cooperate with our friends to defeat final bosses.

9. Little King's Story

In Little King's Story, we controlled Corobo, a young man who obtains a great power granted by a crown.

The premise of the game is to expand a kingdom, Alpoko, and conquer others until you become the ultimate king. 

For this, this title mixes elements of simulation of kingdoms and adventures in a quite fun way.

Although in the beginning, Alpoko will be a fairly humble kingdom, with perseverance and hard work it will become a power. It is vital to venture to get treasures and build different types of buildings.

Each progress is essential in order to have the richest and most diverse population possible, as each class will provide you with advantages necessary for the success of the kingdom.

A nice game with a certain challenge, but one that gets carried away at all times. How comfortable it is to be king with such obedient people!

10. World of Goo

There is no doubt that World of Goo was one of the best releases for the Wii. It was a very ingenious puzzle game, in which we handled a group of sticky and very charming balls.

To overcome each level, we needed to rake our brains in order to take advantage of the forms, species of Goo, and physics in the best possible way.

With this simple proposal, World of Goo was one of the most addictive titles on the Nintendo console. There was no way to stop!

11. Mario Kart Wii

Mario Kart Wii was the best Wii game in the series for a simple reason: control. Although we could play well in the more traditional way, the interesting thing about this Mario Kart was to use the peripheral of the steering wheel. 

The feeling of driving karts was well done and the afternoons were enjoyable when all the players tried to learn the corners.

Another virtue of Mario Kart Wii was the number of characters, circuits, and modalities to compete against the AI ​​or against our friends. 

Star mode was always Grand Prix, but to play against other people, there was the battle mode. It was nice to compete team against a team using your own Miis!

12. Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition

Resident Evil 4 is everywhere! Wii did not escape its clutches but, luckily, it was not a simple port.

The occasion was used to adapt the handling according to the Wiimote and the Nunchuk. 

Although one decided whether to use the traditional controls, it was a more than welcome addition to a terrifying adventure!

To rescue Ashley Graham, the daughter of the President of the United States, Leon S. Kennedy must travel to a rural town in Spain. 

How could it be otherwise, the infected invade the area! With this premise, Resident Evil 4 was a before and after in this saga of survival horrors. Few resources, fearsome bosses, gloomy setting, it has it all!

On Wii, we could also enjoy other equally recommended horror games. Two of them are Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Dead Space: Extraction.

13. Okami

Okami was an action and adventure game in which we played Amaterasu, the goddess of the sun in Japanese mythology and folklore. 

It tells how he saved the world from darkness, and the type of game chosen to tell this story could not be more successful.

Thanks to the possibilities of the Wiimote and Nunchuk, Okami took us through levels that we had to complete by drawing shapes on the screen. 

Thanks to this mechanic, it was possible to create wind, repair objects, or attack enemies, among other actions. 

The art style was another great virtue of the game, thanks to graphics based on Sumi-e, a Japanese technique of drawing with black ink.

Simply put, Okami was an excellent show both playable and audiovisual!

14. Donkey Kong Country Returns

Donkey Kong Country Returns received rave reviews for resuming the gameplay and approach of the Donkey Kong Country. 

That yes; the game went further and knew how to innovate with new playable mechanics. As a platform game, this title was one of the best to play on the Wii.

After the evil Tikis appear, the duo Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong must go through eight worlds to give them what they deserve and recover the bananas. 

Each world is a totally different environment and safeguarded by a unique final boss.

The game became challenging as you progressed, although it could be played cooperatively to control both characters. It was so much better than fighting Tikis alone!

15. Punch-Out !!

Wii game gave us a preview of what a boxing game would look like on Wii, and with Punch-Out !! the occasion was used to present a very entertaining fighting game. 

We were playing as Little Mac, a boxer looking to build a reputation and become the most talented fighter. 

The road was full of very diverse and charismatic rivals, and we even fought Donkey Kong!

With everything and that it was possible to use classic controls, Punch-Out !! it was more appreciated with the movement detection of the Wiimote and the Balance Board. 

With this type of handling, we were able to dodge and strike using our bodies for an experience closer to reality. 

16. Kirby's Epic Yarn

Kirby's Epic Yarn was a singular title in the saga. The most striking thing about this game was the visuals: Kirby was taken into a world of knitting, and Kirby himself became a mess of threads! 

Because of that, he can no longer use his classic power to absorb or fly. Instead, Kirby must transform into different thread forms to progress and clear stages.

The essence as a platform game remained intact, but this installment was a breath of fresh air due to the visual and playable changes it brought. 

It also featured a new villain and numerous collectibles that extended the life of Kirby's Epic Yarn. 

All in all, it was an outstanding game and a great addition to the Wii catalog.

17. Monster Hunter 3

Monster Hunter 3 hardly disappoints hunting fans, and this particular game is one of the most recommended games for Wii. 

In Monster Hunter Tri, we put ourselves in the shoes of a hunter who had to help a town, as the threat of dangerous monsters grew every day.

And what did we have to do? Hunt, get resources, and hunt again! Once we got into the routine of the game, we found ourselves with a fairly complete title with respect to equipment and monsters to hunt. 

In the variety was the excellence of the game, as it was easy to find your own style to play in the most comfortable way.

In addition to being a very complete game, as the saga has used to us, the best thing was to go hunting with friends!

18. Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise (Rhythm Heaven Fever)

Beat the Rhythm was a rhythmic game that required precision when pressing the corresponding buttons.

It was apparently a nice and simple game, but then it got quite complicated!

The minigames, some more challenging than others, were very varied and covered different themes.

One minute we could be playing baseball, the next we could be screwing screws or dancing with animals! 

Rhythm Heaven Fever was a very challenging title, especially when looking to make perfect matches.

It was the perfect game to play at times or spend whole afternoons to the rhythm of the music.

19. No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

In No More Heroes 2, we controlled a very thug Travis and wanting to fight.

Because of his attitude and the actions of the previous installment, this sequel put us in the middle of a conflict and revenge that could only be resolved in one way: combat to the death.

With minigames in between to earn money and get stronger, No More Heroes 2 challenges us to fight against numerous characters as evil as they are talented.

Travis is a better assassin, with four different types of laser katanas and more powerful wrestling moves than ever before. 

Each fight was a spectacle of violence and style, and we will not deny that it was fun!

20. Madworld

If you want to play the wild and bloody game, there is nothing like MadWorld. The city of Varrigan was the target of a terrorist group to release a virus and threaten to only give the vaccine to anyone who kills another person. 

With this inhuman situation, a show called DeathWatch is formed, in which the participants fight to the death for sheer spectacle.

Something like this could only end in a crazy and exaggerated beat'em up to inconceivable levels.

The fun of MadWorld lies in the ways one was able to annihilate enemies. 

It was not enough to punch, as it even challenged us to use the environment to kill in every possible way.

A game not suitable for all stomachs, but of undoubted quality, with final bosses worth remembering and an unrepeatable visual style.
