    While I have no problem with Mecury Meltdown Revolution placing 19th, I think Wii owners should give it a 2nd look. This game is well worth the $20 budget price.

    And Super Mario Galaxy really is all that and a bag of Doritos.

    I like Mercury Meltdown Revolution, but I also never owned any previous Mercury release. It's probably not selling because it's a port of a port of a remake. Plus it didn't exactly burn up the charts on PSP or PS2 either. Still, it is a pretty good game, and the Wii version is the one to get if you don't have it in any form.

    Amazon.com is selling Mercury Meltdown Revolution for $18. I think I'll order a copy!

    By the way, I updated the top 25 list in my first post. I added Geometry Wars: Galaxies, Medal of Honor Heroes 2, and Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles.

    Soulcalibur Legends was just released, but doesn't seem very good according to the reviews so far.

    I'm a big SC fan (love SCII on Xbox) but the idea of Legends sounds pretty bad. It might make a decent bonus mode (like Konquest on MK:Armageddon) but it doesn't look like it's a good full game.

    I'm surprised MoH Heroes 2 didn't get a little bit higher average - it's a great game, and a well rounded package.

    Soulcalibur Legends seems to be just an average game. Its overall rating is 5.5. I'm sure some people will like it, but most people probably won't.

    Medal of Honor Heroes 2 received an overall rating of 7.9, which is very good! The online mode is supposedly excellent.


    By the way, I've updated the original post and added a list of the 15 worst Wii games. I figure it'd be helpful to fellow gamers to have both lists. Buy the best games and avoid the garbage.

    It is amazing to me that there are any games, much less four, listed below Chicken Shoot.

    Haha. I almost want to rent Balls of Fury just to see how bad it is.

    Is that based on the movie? I've never seen it in stores.

    And to get a little off topic, the movie's actually not that bad. It was written and directed by people from Reno 911, so if you like that style of humor, you'd probably like the movie.

    Anyway, I actually have Far Cry and didn't think it was too bad until I got pretty far in the game and it got super cheap by planting snipers that you can barely see (much less shoot at given the wonky controls) every fifteen feet or so.

    Yeah, it's based on the Balls of Fury movie. I haven't seen it, but I saw the Reno 911 movie in a theater. It was decent...definitely better than The Ten, which I also saw in a theater.

    Anyway, Rockstar Table Tennis seems to be a much better ping pong game for the Wii.

    UPDATE: I've expanded the worst Wii games list to 20. I've also discovered a Wii game even worse than Balls of Fury. It's called Billy the Wizard. Has anyone played it?

    Damn it! I just grabbed Ninjabread Man the other day. It looked quirky and I'm usually all over the quirk. Has anyone here played it? I'm just wanting to know If I should return it and grab something else or stick with it cause the reviews are harsh. Did a google search and the reviews I am finding are not very helpful. They all pretty much say "It sucks!" and skirt around the why n' hows, other than game length. Apparently you can go through start to finish in just over an hour and 25% of that is tutorial. Unless the levels are randomly generated each time you play I can't see this having any legs that the gingerbread-kin are known for. WTF?

    Who else is looking forward to No More Heroes? I like the stylized graphics and the game looks like it'll be fun:

    http://media.wii.ign.com/media/827/827358/vids_1.html

    Regarding the top 25 list in the original post, I expect Super Smash Bros. Brawl to be in the top ten once it's released in February.

    Yes.

    I haven't been keeping up with previews. Are there any other Wii games coming out within the next few months besides Super Smash Bros. Brawl and No More Heroes that could crack the top 25?

    Good one. I didn't realize that was coming so soon!

    I'll be keeping an eye on Mario Kart, Wii Fit, Nights: Journey of Dreams, and No More Heroes.

    Though I've only played the first game, I would suspect based on the previews thus far that the new Trauma Center: New Blood will likely be on that top 25 list. Also, I'm a big fan of Super Swing Golf, but I don't really see it listed either way. I've read previews that everything most reviewers felt was wrong with the first game, has been fixed in the sequel. I believe Trauma Center: New Blood may be out already, and Super Swing Golf 2 comes out very soon.

    Trauma Center: New Blood has been receiving mixed reviews. It's weird...some reviewers love it, but others feel like the single player mode is way too difficult. Overall, it's rating is a 7.3 out of 10.

    I don't know whether it will crack the top 25 (especially since the U.S. release has been pushed back once already), but I'm looking forward to Endless Ocean. Even if that game turns out to be just a graphically-updated Everblue 2, I'll be a happy camper, er, scuba diver.

    And here's hoping No More Heroes doesn't get delayed because of the gratuitous violence the game supposedly contains...

    I agree that the Rapala Fishing game was horrible... Don't buy it, the fishing game on Wii Play is way more fun. I haven't played much Wii other than the Wii Play and Wii Sports- but today I got 2 early christmas gifts- Metroid Prime 3 and Ghost Squad, which I am both really looking forward to playing. But the Zapper is proving a little hard to find.

    Reviews for Cruis'n are starting to pop up and they're unfavorable. I've added the game to the worst 20 Wii games list in the original post.

    I must point out that based on the high-res videos I watched on IGN, the graphics don't seem nearly as bad as IGN's review states. I know Cruis'n might not be a great video game, but is this another case of reviewers trying to outdo each other with over-the-top bashing? If so, I hate when that happens.

    I've updated the worst Wii games list and expanded it from 20 to 25. So many horrible Wii games have been released recently and I want to help make sure nobody wastes money on them!

    I added:

    Alvin and the Chipmunks
    Game Party
    Jenga: World Tour
    Mini Desktop Racing
    Offroad Extreme Special Edition

    I made some tweaks to the top 25 Wii games list, but not much has changed recently. I wonder what the next game to make it into the list will be? Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3? Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords? NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams? Nitrobike? Rygar: The Battle of Argus? Endless Ocean?

    As a Wii owner I thank you for the list and updates, it is fun to see the good, bad and ugly.

    I concur. You saved me from Ninjabread Man. I swapped it for the Zapper a few weeks ago.
