    Default Best budget Wii games?

    I know Wii games are typically cheaper than 360 and PS3 games anyway, but I recently tried Domino Rally (which I believe is the sequel to Mr. Domino on PS1 since it's made by the same developer Success) and it was pretty good.

    Does anybody else know of any decent budget Wii games? I've seen Army Rescue and Pirates of Plundarr, and they look like good 2D games but I haven't tried them.
    Currently catching up on PSN, WiiWare, Wii U E-Shop and Xbox Live Arcade exclusives I missed.

    I picked up Heavenly Guardian because it looked a bit like 2D Zelda, but I really can't recommend it. It kind of sucked.

    Heavenly Guardian is pretty much Pocky & Rocky without the license. It was even originally developed as a game in the series. It's pretty good if you like the series. I've only played the PS2 version though.

    Well, tacked on motion controls were definitely part of the problem. If I ever see the PS2 version cheap somewhere I might give it a shot.

    Blast Works is a quirky "build your own shmup" game that you should be able to find for 10 bucks or less. I recommend it.

    I picked up mercury Meltdown used for 4.99 and Madworld used for 9.99. Both are pretty good.

    I picked this up today at a local pawn shop.

    It's nice to see so many decent Wii games for cheap. It's almost like the twilight of the Dreamcast, when you could find awesome new games for $20.

    A Boy and His Blob is a great 2D puzzle/platformer for $10. Beautiful music and artwork to boot.

    Wholly Damn Thirded! All shooting fans should get this US release. What do you think influences developers to make certain kinds of games? Profits for one!

    EDIT: Also check out UFOs Raiden III port to PS2, it's quite different, yet really good at the same time.

    Well, since we're on a classic gaming forum I'm assuming you'd be up for some 2D gaming, and Muramasa is one of the best new titles out there. Just wait until you kill those giant demonic caterpillars.

    Priceless.

    Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection is a pretty solid collection of faithfully-recreated pinball tables from the 60s-90s. I got mine for $15; I'm SURE you can get it cheaper now as I got it over 2 years ago. Just had a marathon session the other night, much to the chagrin of my wife.
