    Default We know that Zelda and Wii Sports are the two best Wii games, what is the third best?

    It's pretty obvious that Zelda and Wii Sports are the two best Wii games right now. The question is, which is third best? I'm guessing the primary canidates would be:


    Trauma Center: Second Opinion

    Super Monkey Ball:Banana Blitz

    Rayman Raving Rabids

    Excite Truck

    Red Steel

    Elebits


    Only one of those that i've played is Red Steel, and while I found it entertaining for the first 45 minutes, after that I felt it got rather tedius and became a FPS by the numbers. Not a bad game, but not a standout either. I've heard Trauma Center is really good if you've never played the DS game. Supposedly if you've played the DS game, it's too much of a rehash with not enough new content. I've never played the DS game, so I would love to try Trauma Center, but my damn Blockbuster doesn't carry that particular game for some dumb reason.

    I hate Red Steel. I've been trying to think of a way to get rid of it since I bought it. I'm not a big fan of Rayman either. Haven't played the others, but from the reviews, I'd say either Elebits or Excite Truck.

    Havnt tried Wii yet, but Rayman should be quite fun if you like minigames If i had to choose from this list i would most likely pick up Elebits. That game looks most interesting out of these imo.

    Yeah, it's either Super Monkey Ball or Elebits. I have Zelda, Metal Slug, and Monkey Ball. I think they are all great.

    WarioWare is supposed to be great too. Not for me though.

    I own

    Wii Sports
    Excite Truck
    Elebits
    Zelda
    Trauma Center
    GT Pro Series
    Rampage (it only cost me $20)
    Red steel

    and out of all of them, I think Trauma Center stands out the most. Its pretty intense and is lots of fun. Zelda, Elebits, and sports are also up there. I like all the games i got actually.

    Trauma Center, without a doubt.

    Elebits would be a good deal more enjoyable if it weren't for the massive slowdown when you have a lot of objects moving at once; the game crawls.

    My new favorite game after Zelda and Wii Sports?

    NOTHING. I'm not going to continue to purchase full priced below-average launch titles. My recommendation? Play what you've got, play your 360 and wait for something good.

    Wario should be fun...and thats around the corner.

    Truama Center or Rayman

    I cannot decide, I have Rayman, Trauma Center, Zelda, Sports, Elebits, Metal Slug, Red Steel(Which is really good I can't wait until mopre companys figure out these controls better), and Rampage(for the old games)

    and I got good deals on most of these games $195 for all of them not counting Wii Sports

    I vote for Super Swing Golf or Elebits. Both great games and I hadn't seen Super Swing mentioned yet.

    Here's a second for SSG. The game is accurate but fantastic and there is a TON of stuff to unlock. I've been playing it a lot and I've still only unlocked 1/4 of the secrets at most. I also like Metal Slug but it's not the kind of game I can sit there and play for hours (not to mention nearly unplayable on the Wii remote). It's cool to have all the Metal Slug's on one CD though.

    Rayman, hands down. It's really a lot of fun with a bunch of people once you unlock everything. It gets to be a bit long in the tooth for the single player game (I think I'm 2/3rds through it), but the multiplayer really is great.

    Monkey ball could have been good but they totally botched the control. Seriously, one handed control? Dumb.

    Of the games that have actually been released in Australia, I liked Super Monkey Ball the best.

    My friend that owns it is at his wits end. He threatens to throw the disk out the window whenever he gets stuck, so I have to go over to his house and solve the puzzles for him (I'm actually off there again in a few hours ).

    Besides, we all know that Sonic will be the best Wii game. *cough*

    EDIT: Also, WiseSalesman, I love your avatar!

    I've played all of them, and I would say:

    Rayman > Elebits > Trauma Center > Excite Truck > Monkey Ball > Red Steel

    And who says that Wii Sports is the second best game? I don't know if you'd find much support for that notion. Start a poll! Assume Zelda is #1, just vote for #2. When that's done, just vote for #3

    Haven't played Elebits personally, but everyone I know who has it absolutely loves it. Personally, I really enjoyed Red Steel so that'd get my vote even though it's buggy and kind of fugly. =) Also have Rayman, SMB:BB, THDJ and Rampage, but i had more fun w/ Red Steel. Maybe because I don't normally like FPS's. Maybe I just have odd taste in games...

    Rayman wins. The game is an absolute blast and everyone I've shown it toloves it. The game is one of the funniest I've ever played, no doubt.
