Best motion controls on Wii

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Best motion controls on Wii

Maybe not the best, but I had the most fun with Raving Rabbids 1 and 2.

I've seen some hate for them recently, but I thought most of the motion-based levels in Mario Galaxy were well done. The manta racing in particular worked well, as did the ball rolling. I could really feel myself getting better at both the more I played.

Hate for Mario Galaxy? I honestly haven't really come across that. IMO, it's still the landmark Mario game from a design standpoint, the Ocarina of Time/Breath of the Wild game of that series.

The IR collection in Mario Galaxy was such a great mechanic. I added a new dimension that is missing in Odyssey.

I'd love to see Super Mario Galaxy 3, bring in some of the wall-2D gameplay from Odyssey, but maintain the mechanics and design style of Galaxy.

 

I know it probably won't happen for decades (when they decide to do a design throw-back), but I really look forward to the day that I can play a new Super Mario Galaxy game.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Hate for the motion levels, not the games as a whole.

Zack and Wiki Quest for Barbaros' Treasure.

agree! one of the best Wii motion programming, maybe the best non-motion plus controls, and it was released so early in Wii's lifetime

Silent Hill Shattered Memories was another good one rarely mentioned. (And also just a really good game that's rarely mentioned IMO)

Using motion and pointer controls to aim your torch, manipulate your environment to solve puzzles, and throw off attacking enemies felt great.

never tried it but sounds interesting, I'll add it on my Wii "to play" list :D

Elebits (US) or Eledees (UK) - This is a really underappreciated game.
Red Steel 2
Zelda: Skyward Sword
Wii Sports Resort
Metroid Prime Trilogy
Resident Evil 4
Okami
Zelda: Twilight Princess - I know Twilight Princess's sword controls was not on the same level as the sword controls in Skyward Sword, but swinging the sword freely while running felt fun. Also the archery & shield bash was implemented really well.

Mario Kart Wii & Excite Truck were both extremely fun too. Also I've heard ExciteBots was even better than Excite Truck but I haven't played that.
