Top Wii Family Games of All Time
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top family games of All Time, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
Mario Party 8's core gameplay is dull, the mini-games uninspired and the presentation severely lacking. One all but the hardest of Nintendo fans should avoid.
With so many other (better) mini-game focussed titles available on the Wii, Carnival simply can't be recommended.
At £5 per mini-game you'd expect some pretty amazing Ninja action, with plenty of flipping out Ninja-style. You don't get it.
As an introduction to the Wii and its unique control scheme Wii Play just about works, but beyond that there's very little here to get excited about.
Without 50+ games to play and none of the long-term appeal of Brain Training, what you've got is a game that will please you for a week and then rarely leave its case.
If played with friends you could get a weekend's entertainment out of Raving Rabbids 2, but if you're new to the series, you're better off picking up the original.
If the idea of playing a board game seems too last century this virtual edition might be worth a look, but be aware that this is only ever going to be second best.
With more mini-games to take advantage of the tap mechanic Let's Tap could have been a must have party game, but it's just too light on content to whole heartedly recommend.
Raving Rabbids is unlikely to be remembered as a classic when we look back at the Wii in five years time, but for now it's one of the better titles available and well worth a look.
Smarty Pants is exactly what you'd expect it to be, but nothing more. It's basically an interactive quiz, with none of the frills seen in rival titles from Sony and Microsoft.
