Does anyone have any good suggestions for new Wii games? They are quite expensive and I would hate to buy one and have it be boring or dumb. Also, any suggestions on ones to avoid would be appretiated too! Thanks
Zelda Twilight Princess is loads of fun. It's for one player at a time, though and is one of those story ones. I'm addicted - it's almost like reading a book and doing a puzzle, but more fun. Big Brain for Wii is a letdown, compared to the DS version.
I just got the new Donkey Kong and played it for a few minutes yesterday and it seemed pretty fun. That one can be played with up to 4 people.
I guess it depends on the age of the people who are going to play. Zelda is fun, but I think it's too challenging for a younger kid. There's a lot of that figuring out what you're supposed to do to move on in the game.
I have that Mario game too. It's definitely good to play against someone. Like a board game on the Wii.
This kid at my Tae Kwon Do class and I always talk about Wii. I've loaned him my Prince of Persia game, so we always get in trouble for talking about it instead of paying attention to our class. I'm a bad influence.....anyhooo....he's probably about 13 and keeps telling me to get Guitar Hero. That's supposed to be pretty cool.
Mario Galaxy and Zak & Wiki are my favorites at the moment. They both have gorgous graphics.
You should go to wii.ign.com and look at their review and you will find out which ones stink and which ones are good.
We have Wii Play which I bought primarily for the Wii Remote that came with it, but my daughter (19) and I enjoyed it. It wasn't as physically challenging as Wii Sports by any means and a couple of the games had me totally perplexed (the tank game for one), but ping-pong, pool, target practice and horse race were lots of fun.
The games are quicker to play than most of the Wii Sports so if you just want to play for a few more minutes, but not get too involved then this would fit the bill.
However, if you don't need it for the extra remote, I'm not sure if it is worth the $25 for the game alone.
