The must-own games on every platform

Platforming
Super Mario Galaxy

Mario swaps platforms for planets in arguably his best adventure yet.

Adventure
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

The darkest Zelda to date sees Link using wolf-like abilities to save the day.

Action/horror
Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition

RE is revamped by intensified action, better controls and faster "zombies."

Fighting
Super Smash Bros. Brawl

A love letter to all things Nintendo and a furiously addictive battler to boot.

Shooter
Metroid Prime Trilogy

Metroid demands as much from your brain as it does from your trigger finger.

Adventure
Okami

Borrows heavily from Zelda but the beautiful, Japanese-inspired visuals keep things fresh.

Strategy
Little King’s Story



This deceptively cute strategy adventure has immense depth to keep you hooked.

Racing
Mario Kart Wii

Not the best Mario Kart ever – the motion controls aren’t precise enough – but it’s still addictive karting.

Adventure
Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure

The pint-sized pirate and his monkey reinvent the point and click adventure.

Action
No More Heroes

Classic hack-’n’-slash action underpins this bizarre tale of a would-be assassin and his lightsaber.

The best Wii mature games

Manhunt 2

Rockstar’s clever and controversial chiller features some truly gruesome finishing moves.

MadWorld

Platinum Games’ underrated Wii debut combines eye-catching visuals with inventively violent points-based gameplay.

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

A deliciously dark and psychologically terrifying return to the Hill.

The House of the Dead: Overkill

Fast-paced light gun game featuring pitch dark humour and more ‘f’ words than Gordon Ramsey’s kitchen.
