2. Mario Kart
Start your engines, get ready, get set, and go! Mario Kart takes racing to a whole new level with the Wii Wheel allowing players to actually drive their cart with a steering wheel. As if the racing wasn’t fun enough, you can play against your friends from the comfort of your own home or against players from all over the world! New vehicles, including the addition of motorbikes, driving as your mii or just racing against the usual suspects will leave you glued to the tube.
1. Super Smash Bros. Brawl
This epic fighting game is a smash-up brawler that lets you and a bunch of friends play as some of the most famous video game characters ever and see who can thump the other into orbit. This game is all about crazy cartoony battles. There are so many things that make this game fantastic, there’s no room to say it all. Not only can you battle it out with your buddies, go head to head against the computer in showdowns and battles, and take your mayhem online, there’s also a single-player story (that your friends can join) about a Subspace Emissary that needs everyone to defeat it. This game is truly awesome, and is THE game for the Wii.
