Nintendo Wii's Most Popular Games

Jan 20, 2008
Nintendo made some of the best classic games, but give these a try and see why they can still work:

Gunstar Heroes
First released in 1993, this quirky game is well-loved for its exciting running and shooting action and its non-stop intense gameplay. You'll also like the game's manga-style look and the guns that could be mixed and matched to create your very own custom-designed shooter. Choose from a flamethrower, a homing shot, a machine gun and a laser. But no matter how big your gun gets, your enemies either multiply or get bigger themselves, so you never run out of challenges.

If you enjoyed the arcade games of the past like Street Fighter II and Contra, you'll like this game even better. The levels, thankfully enough, are brief so you're not stuck with long-winding stages of mindless gunplay. Two players can also play simultaneously.

Trauma Center: Second Opinion
If you've played the Trauma Center before, you've probably met Dr. Derek Stiles, who just completed his residency. The story progresses through text dialogue and still images, but it's interesting enough with the incorporation of some serious material, like euthanasia to suicidal patients. As Dr. Derek Stiles, you are gifted with the Healing Touch.

In the world you will inhabit, forces that point to bioterrorism are threatening the world with an epidemic. You will be performing surgery on patients, although it's not as gory as you might think. You get to use a multiple array of surgical tools through the analog stick of the Wii's nunchuk attachment. And it's not just about surgery. You do have to mind your patient's health - if his heart stops, you have to do something. This game isn't easy so you'll be challenged throughout.

Rayman Raving Rabbids
This is one of those rare games where the villains are cuter than the hero, Rayman. The games are silly but entertaining - they'll even let you play whack-the-rabbid inside the bathroom stalls or use the nunchuk and the remote like drum sticks as the bunnies dance on a stage. With about 70 minigames, you can chase away boredom easily, although for some jaded players, this tends to use the same formula in some levels.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
This is Zelda's first complete outing since The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker won the 2003 Gamespot Game of the Year. Play the game as Link, defend Hyrule and save Princess, Zelda. In this version, you will be fighting the shadow as it slowly corrupts the land of Hyrule. By fighting the bad guys, finding dungeons, acquiring heart containers and getting weapons, you help revive the land.

Now, Are You Ready to Rule Hyrule?

The much-awaited release of Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess has finally arrived and with a new version specially designed for expectant users of Wii, the newest innovation from Nintendo.

The Storyline of Zelda
A young wrangler named Link, who grew up in a small rural village, received orders from the mayor requiring his attendance at the Hyrule Summit. This esteemed honor however concealed an ominous destiny for Link: darkness has blanketed the whole kingdom of Hyrule, and his entry to the Twilight Realm instantly turned Link into a wolf.

Link's sudden transformation made it easy for his opponents to capture him, but thanks to the opportune intervention of a mysterious woman called Midna, Link was saved and together, they formed a quest to rescue Hyrule from evil, before it was too late.

What to Expect from Zelda
Master Sword Slashing? In Zelda, you'll still be able to slash your sword to fight and chop the appropriate things or creatures in sight just like how you did in previous Zelda games. The difference, however, is that this time the sword that your character holds mirror the movements that your hand makes via the motion-sensitive Wii remote control unit.

The Wii Remote, thankfully, is easy to use as a sword. All you'll need is a slight flick of your wrist for the short jabs of your sword and a bit more force for the more powerful sword moves.

Master Fishing - This aspect of this game was one of the several features that were obviously built to take Great advantage of the gaming unit's motion sensitivity. Thankfully, once more, using the Wii Remote as a fishing rod isn't difficult at all. Before you know it, you'll be rearing back and hooking your rod up and down to catch the biggest fish in the history of Hyrule!

The Present is a Blend of Old and New Flavors. As you explore the vast territory of Hyrule, there will be moments that playing the game will feel like a nostalgic walk down memory lane while there are other moments where you'll feel absolutely challenged to navigate through unchartered territory. Whether this is good or not, however, depends on you alone.

It's a Big Big World - Hyrule is quite enormous and accompanied with dungeons that are even bigger than usual. Exploring the kingdom however is an interesting and yes, fun experience and which you can make even more interesting if you view it through a wolf's eyes.

The Verdict: Although it doesn't achieve an overall perfect score, Zelda is still a beautiful game made more beautiful because of Wii.
