Pub: EA
Block-tumbling physics game designed by Steven Spielberg. 88%


Zoom

Pub: Rising Star
The simple farming life of Harvest Moon, stretched into a full-blown agri-RPG. 88%


Zoom

28. Wii MUSIC
Pub: Nintendo
Misunderstood music-making toy allows you to toot your own horn / harp / dog suit. 88%


Zoom

27. RAYMAN ORIGINS
Pub: Ubisoft
Relentlessly, maddeningly difficult platformer, but always fair (and fun) to go with it. 88%


Zoom

26. MARIO KART Wii
Pub: Nintendo
A little too chaotic, even by Mario Kart standards, but it's easily Wii's best online game. 88%


Zoom

25. ENDLESS OCEAN
Pub: Nintendo
Snap shots of aquatic fauna and discover treasure. A perfect comedown after zombie slaying. 88%


Zoom

24. GUITAR HERO 5
Pub: Activision
Classic plastic singing / drumming / guitaring. Sadly Band Hero kit isn't cross-compatible on Wii. 88%


Zoom

23. BEAT THE BEAT: RHYTHM PARADISE
Pub: Nintendo
Fiendish rhythm-based challenges set to insane visual prompts. 89%


Zoom

22. MURAMASA: THE DEMON BLADE
Pub: Rising Star
Half role-playing game, half side-scrolling hack-'n'-slasher. 89%


Zoom

Pub: Sierra
Mesmerising grid shooter with a fully realised single-player structure. 89%


Zoom

20. GRAND SLAM TENNIS
Pub: EA
Watch the tutorials, and this MotionPlus delight offers deep, rewarding tennis. 89%


Zoom

19. CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS
Pub: Activision
Surprisingly faithful to the HD versions. There's online multiplayer, too! 89%


Zoom

18. MONSTER HUNTER TRI
Pub: Capcom
Pokémon for barbarians - explore a beautiful world and slay its beasts. 89%


Zoom

17. PROJECT ZERO 2
Pub: Nintendo
Thoroughly terrifying ghost hunter makes its way to Wii. Inessential minigames can't mar the pure horror at its core. 89%


Zoom

16. PIKMIN 2
Pub: Nintendo
This endearing RTS-in-a-garden was originally a Cube game, but it's better on Wii. 90%


Zoom

15. ZACK & WIKI: QUEST FOR BARBAROS' TREASURE
Pub: Capcom
Cross Monkey Island with Mouse Trap and you're halfway to understanding what this nautical but nice point-'n'-click adventure is all about. Witty banter and taxing puzzles combine to form a charming experience. 90%


Zoom

14. NO MORE HEROES 2: DESPERATE STRUGGLE
Pub: Rising Star
If you like your swordplay kitsch with a side-order of manga-geek, then you can't really go wrong with either of the No More Heroes games. They're violent, cool, witty and slightly rude in equal measures. 90%


Zoom

13. FATAL FRAME IV: THE MASK OF THE LUNAR ECLIPSE
Pub: Nintendo [Japanese Import]
Alas, Fatal Frame IV is so scary that no store outside Japan dare stock it. But you can get the Japanese version working on your British Wii with a free patch. Visit fatalframe4.net and they'll tell you how. 90%


Zoom

12. ROCK BAND 3
Pub: EA
The plastic guitar fad might be over, but it's important to remember that Rock Band and Guitar Hero succeeded because they were great games - and this is the best of the lot. New Pro peripherals make Rock Band 3 the ultimate finger-blisterer. 91%


Zoom

11. BULLY: SCHOLARSHIP EDITION
Pub: Rockstar
Rockstar reined in the intoxicating freedom of Grand Theft Auto by transplanting the gameplay into the regimented environment of a boarding school and sending teachers out to make sure you didn't skip the minigame classes. Astonishingly it worked. 91%
