There's a thread about the outdoor challenge under the "game review" section of the team...also, Nintendo has a games database (all games Nintendo) on their site--you can chose to look just at Wii games, and see what's out there (there is A LOT!!).

My favorites are guitar hero, wii fit and DDR hottest party. I love playing guitar hero with my kids, and I like how well wii fit tracks your progress. DDR is great for the cardio, but doesn't give me the feedback of the wii fit.

It is a separate game. I comes with a mat and it has a lot of different challenges for you to complete. There is running, jumping, kayaking and all sorts of neat things to do. It costs about $60.

Get the Wii Play it comes with a controler and it costs about the same as getting a controler by itself.

My fav is the Wii Fit. Although I like the outdoor challenge as well.

WOW! I didn't know there was so much to get for the Wii. I just got one a couple weeks ago and still unlocking things. My Mom and I play the bowling. I try to play everything. Need to get a second controller.

Everyone has mentioned most of my favorites.

We picked up Mario Party 8 I think when we bought ours and played it ALOT untill we unlocked everything. Now the kids play. It's another one of those games that all ages can play. It's also nice that 4 people can play at a time.

Paper Mario is pretty good too. My 5-year-old is playing it now.

Definatly agree with the DDR. Wii Fit is good, but DDR is above it to me, I like the cardio.

the rock band and gutair hero games are good too.

Biggest issue I have with most of these games, storeing the pieces. lol I sooo need a game room

Mario Kart (not that I don't like DDR...but I figured I'd throw something else out)

Mario Kart for Wii is a lot of fun--and includes motorbikes as well. It's easy to control, so the whole family can play. AND it's fun for the whole family, since you get to throw out shells and bananas and such to "trip" up the other players. It's not a super-realistic game, but most of those are SUPER hard to control on Wii, since they have little quirks about them (like sliding around the corners).

I would say that Mario Kart is a definite must have game.

I too just got my Wii a little over a week ago, and fell in love right away. I love the outdoor challenge too, it's fun and a great workout. Well worth it if you don't mind storing the pad. In my opinion don't waste your time or money on summer games, it isn't all that it sounds to be.

The Wii sports games are actually my favorite, especially the boxing and tennis, which can give you a decent workout if you really move when you're doing them. I also have Wii Party games that has tons of fun stuff. I used to play on a dart league before I moved to WA, so I LOVE the dart game on it (you have to hold the controller like a dart or it won't work!) Also has a trivia game that's fun to play with someone else. Has other things like shuffleboard, skeeball, etc.

I love DDR Hottest Party.

It isn't perfect, but it is fun whether I play by myself or with others. Plus as a bonus it is a cardio workout. Gotta love that.

Hey ALL! I am very new to WII, purchased yesterday, and I am already in LOVE!! I will be getting the WII fit as soon as I can find one but until then I would like to know what games everyone loves and why, so I can try them out. The only game I have besides the Wii sport is the Wii play so any suggestions would be great!

Thanks!
