Favorite Wii Games

Recommended Posts

I am curious about the Mario ones too - because I have heard a couple that sound good, but they're all running together! So the "carnival games" one is Mario Party? And then there are other Mario ones I assume? Do they have one that's like the "old school" Mario where he jumps on mushrooms and stuff? Funny how we get this great technology and I want all of the old school games.

 

Side note: Centipede is my favoriate game of all time!

In Mario Galaxies he runs around jumps over things and collects items like old school, but you are on planets, so you are going around the sphere where sometimes you will be running and end up upside down!

That was hard to get used to.

 

You can hold the remote vertically, make a little twirl with it and Mario will jump and twirl which is cool.

You can also point at the screen with the remote to collect items.

This is a good one.

I have not read through this thread, I just wanted to post my opinion, the only game we have bought so far is Sims Castaway because I love the Sims, but we rent games frist before we by them to make sure we like them. Wii Party is the one that has Ski ball and its a lot of fun, it also has darts and basketball (hoop shot), shuffle board, air hockey, etc.. and we love that and might buy it. I am dying to try the CSI game because I love CSI, but I have not seen it to rent yet.

 

We have guitar hero for x-box 360, so I don't know what its like on Wii, but its awesome on the 360.

Actually there is a separate carnival game called "Carnival Games" (go figure). And then there's Mario Party which is a board game based that has a carnival theme.

 

For those still looking for a Wii, I found mine and couple of friends off of iTrackr. Signing up is free and you can track your local stores inventory. I know that some stores hold their stock until Sunday morning when the circulars start.

 

I also thought Big Brain Academy is kinda fun too. I have Mario Galaxy which I literally played once, but it makes me motion sick. I love all the traditional Mario games and it aches me that I can't play the new one. If anyone is interested in it, PM me, I've been meaning to sell it on ebay and never got around to it.

So I was inspired by this thread to go buy a new Wii game!

 

We decided on Mario Part 8 and I must say I love it! So much fun. There are many, many games included. If you like Mario or boardgames, you will love this too! :)

Oh, good to know, JL. Paul and I bought the Mario & Sonic Olympics ... and we haven't even got through all of the games yet. My arms were tired after playing for an hour or so though. They're fun ... but I'm not very good yet. grrr!
