10. OKAMI
Pub: Capcom
Capcom attempt to out-Zelda Zelda with this enigmatic tale of a wolf-goddess armed with a celestial paintbrush that can interact with the world around you. In the end, the Sun Goddess doesn't quite outshine the Twilight Princess, but it's still one of Wii's leading lights. 91%

9. METROID PRIME TRILOGY
Pub: Nintendo
You'll need to put on a space helmet before reading, as otherwise your squeals of delight will wake Australia: this stunning package crams three excellent Metroid adventures onto one disc - with updated Wii controls! 100+ hours of scanning and shooting. 91%

8. LITTLE KING'S STORY
Pub: Rising Star Games
Sadly, only nine people bought this adorable real-time strategy tale of a young king and his army of faithful villagers who'll go wherever his royal sceptre demands. Why not push the sales into double figures? Or are you one of those weirdos who hates grinning? 92%

7. XENOBLADE CHRONICLES
Pub: Nintendo
Forget Skyrim's sludge 'n' drudge greyscape - if you want to see just how beautiful an RPG can be, then why not spend an hour or hundred in Xenoblade's enchanting world, which has sprouted up from the backs of the corpses of two warring gods? 93%

6. SUPER SMASH BROS BRAWL
Pub: Nintendo
Manic, energetic scrapper that makes up for what it lacks in finesse with volume, humour, multiplayer hi-jinx and some of the most exhaustive fan service ever. Short of Mario hand-feeding you meatballs, you won't find a more intensive Nintendo experience. 93%

5. RESIDENT EVIL 4
Pub: Capcom
You know you're trucking with a special survival horror game when you enter an abandoned village armed to the teeth and you still end up browning your Wario boxers. The extra precision of the remote makes one of the best games ever even better. 96%

4. THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: TWILIGHT PRINCESS
Pub: Nintendo
After an hour, you've herded goats and rescued a cat. After six, you're walking upside down above a lava pit. After 40, you're hookshotting across a temple in the clouds. A stirring, impossibly epic adventure. 97%

3. SUPER MARIO GALAXY
Pub: Nintendo
One moment you're ice-skating in outer space; the next, you're bouncing on a conveyor belt made of Battenberg. Such is its energy and thirst to explore new frontiers that even the emergence of a (marginally) superior sequel fails to make this any less than essential. 97%

2. THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: SKYWARD SWORD
Pub: Nintendo
Producer Eiji Aonuma finally lays the ghost of Ocarina to rest with this, the Zelda that rewrites all the rules. The Skyloft setting is a wonderland, and the MotionPlus swordplay allows you to 'be' Link like never before. 98%

1. SUPER MARIO GALAXY 2
Pub: Nintendo
This platforming masterpiece scoops up the myriad ideas that erupted from Mario Galaxy's bubbling volcano of creativity, and stretches each and every one of them out like a Technicolor accordion. Then it adds about ten billion more of its own, simply because it can. Tactile, joyful and totally ace, this is easily the best game ever made. Any better, and the human mind simply wouldn't be able to process it. 98%
