Buying Guide: Top four Wii games

By October 18, 2012Buying Guides

The price of a Wii video game console has dropped to $130, just in time for the holidays and right before the release of the Wii U on November 18. If you’ve always wanted to try out the Wii but hesitated because of the price tag, hesitate no longer. Included in this $130 bundle is a black Wii console, Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort (both games are included on one disk).

If you do decide to pick up a Wii at this lower price, be sure to remember to pick up some popular games to try out!

Just Dance
Instead of holding the controller in both hands like a normal game, you must hold the controller in the right hand at all times. Play with up to four people, and follow the choreography shown on the screen. Just Dance 3 features both current pop songs as well as old dance songs for you and your friends to enjoy.

Mario Kart
This go-kart style racing game can provide hours of fun for people of all ages. Pick your favorite character, car and race track, and you’re ready to go. Start your engines and race to pick up special items that can help you hit the finish line quicker, and cause your opponent to squeal out, literally.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Out of 39 different choices, choose one character to play as. Many popular and instantly recognizable characters include Mario, Pikachu, Kirby and more. Choose any setting ranging from a spacious castle to the top of a fighter plane. Pick up items and try to knock your opponents out of the screen and eventually, out of the game.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Skyward Sword is a role-playing game. You play as Link, the protagonist who is trying to save his friend Zelda. Equipped with a sword and shield, you  make your way through various mini quests and time periods in order to find your friend. This game was well-received overall, and received high scores from various publications.

Something else to keep in mind is that the Wii U will also be backwards compatible, meaning it will be able to run Wii games such as the ones listed above.
