6. Wave Race
Much like 1080, we weren't huge fans of the Wave Race GameCube sequel. The visuals didn't blow us away and it all felt like we'd been there before - largely because most of the courses were copies or redesigned versions from the N64 game. Still it boasted impressive water effects and we're eager to get more water-based action on the Wii. Motion controls seem to be a perfect fit and with the inclusion of online racing and leaderboards, stunt and time trial junkies could find their previous past times taking a back seat for quite some time.
Kirby's a tricky one. While we'd love to see him make a comeback on the Wii, the game type could be anything. For the sake of the game not being a disaster we're inclined to want Nintendo to play it safe, creating something like Super Monkey Ball, but with a little more variety. Perhaps even a rolling-based adventure game. What we don't want is a Wii follow-up to the Power Paintbrush DS game. While it worked great on the DS, the Wii Remote isn't quite as great for drawing lines as the DS stylus is.
