Wii Top 25

A easy reference for the current best-selling games for the Wii.

  • slide 1 of 1

    To no one's surprise, at the top of Amazon's Wii sales charts by a solid margin is Wii Fit, threatening to make our collective couch-potatoed rear ends a shade more healthy with its mix of balance and flexibility challenges. Nintendo's beloved Mario franchise takes up a decent chunk of the Top 25 list, with the eponymous plumber and his pals driving, partying, brawling, and generally mixing it up nicely. Down the ladder from previous weeks, Capcom's critically acclaimed Okami is still a strong title, despite the steady dominance of multiplayer party titles such as Carnival Games, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, and Game Party.

    A couple of new climbers on the list: the first is Ubisoft's No More Heroes, a stylish, high-action fighting title from the developers who brought you the popular Killer 7 for GameCube. Also new for preorder, in anticipation of this month's silver-screen return of archaeologist/Nazi-fighter Indiana Jones, is LucasArts' Lego Indiana Jones: the Original Adventures. Now's your chance to have all your childhood Indy adventure dreams come true! Provided, of course, that your fantasies don't involve controlling the sweaty, leathery action star himself, but instead getting to send his minifig alter-ego (wait, do I smell product tie-in?) on adventures against numerous formidable blocky foes.
