Five More Wii Games to Choose

Nintendo Wii Games for the Family

Five more Wii games for kids that did not make the top 10, but they certainly deserve to have a spot on this lens.

All five games are ESRB Rating E for Everyone

Have fun!

Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga enables families to play through the events of all six Star Wars movies in one videogame for the first time ever.

New levels, new characters, and new features keep the Lego Star Wars game exciting and fresh!

ESRB Rated E10 for age 10 and up.

“My son started playing this game when he was 5 and he loved it. The absolute best part of the game is that a second player can drop in and out at any time. So if he gets stuck, I can join in for a few minutes and help him…The violence in the game is all muted/cartoon violence. When guys die they break apart into little Lego pieces. When things blow up, they break into Lego chunks.”

Active Outdoor Challenge

Active Outdoor Challenge will get you off the couch! Over a dozen games that include river rafting, mine-cart adventure, jumping, see-saws, and much more.

Includes the Active Life Mat, so you are ready to go.

Young kids can play along with their families.

ESRB Rated E for everyone.

“My 2 1/2 year old niece loves Jump Rope and some of the other jumping games. It’s a great way to get everyone off the couch and having fun.”

“I got the wii mostly for myself, but of course my 5 year old and 2 year old were all over it… Even my 2 year old can play enough to feel like he is participating with the family. So the age range is huge and this really is fun for the whole family and makes for great family quality time.”

Super Mario Galaxy

In Super Mario Galaxy, join Mario in his next adventure that takes him into space. Bowser has abducted Peach’s entire castle and Mario finds himself on a mysterious moon high above the Mushroom Kingdom! Collect enough stars and you can save Princess Peach. Travel from planet to planet, run through alien worlds, surf a ray in an ocean of clouds. Another fun Mario game.

Two people can play this game at the same time, but the second player is actually only helping the first player by collecting stars and other helpful tasks.

The game is not rated yet, but seems to be for the age of 8 and on up.

“My 8 year old son can’t get enough of this game – he wants to play it every night, and talks about it during the day. He and his dad have bonded over strategy and discussion of galaxies. My toddler daughter is often captivated by the graphics…”

“My daughter got this game for her 6th birthday and she loves it… She loves to play dress up, so being able to dress her pets, buy them pretty things, and name them is pure joy for her. She needs some help with reading…but otherwise she does just fine playing this game.”

ESRB Rated E for Everyone

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Zelda is a classic. And in this Wii, The Legend of Zelda has been updated so fans can enjoy playing it again.

In this version, Link is a teenager and must save his world from the ravages of dangerous magic.

Zelda is the only T rated lens included on this lens. Little kids can’t play the game alone, but they certainly can have a good time with the simpler puzzles in the beginning of the game.

“I think they struck a great balance between “tame enough for younger kids” and “in depth enough for older players”. There are a lot of teen and adult Zelda fans out there, and they’ll be quite pleased with what the game offers…”

ESRB Rated T for Teens
As one reviewer stated, “Link is less cartooney in this game. That’s not to say it’s a mature title – it’s still a game without blood. You kill evil enemies who vanish in a puff of smoke. You go on a variety of quests, and it’s very much good-against-evil….”

    I like Wii Fit Plus & Wii Resort, my son loves Mario, Zelda & Smash Bros. games. We all have our favorites. :)

    I do have a question, what is Rocket Moms? I'm new to Squidoo, and just tonight I've started seeing a lot about Rocket Moms. Can anyone join? What's the purpose of it? I just wanted to get some information and since I see Rocket Moms on your page, thought I would ask. Thanks.
