Klonoa - 10/10
Untitled Untitled Untitled

Dreamy and Surrel. Crystal clear gorgeous graphics combined with one of the greatest soundtracks in gaming history. Some of the imaginitive environments will leave you i awe, the gameplay is as fun as ever and any SideScroller/Platformer retro lover owes it to themselves to pick this one up! This game made me feel like a kid again and lit up my eyes with joy. It's one of the greatest Wii games period and is in my Top 5

Guilty Gear XX Accent Core PLUS - 8/10
Untitled Untitled Untitled

You know, this is the perfect example of an obscure fighting franchise. And this one has to be thee' best Guilty Gear yet! Think of it as a bat nuts more insane and creative Street Fighter on lightning fast Anime trippy pills. The main problem I have(and most people) with this game 'and' the franchise in general is that none of my friends play it or haven't even heard of it for the most part, and there's NO Online. Which is a shame, because it's a pretty good fighter, but playing the computer gets stale pretty fast! But if you and your buddies are willing to sit down and learn how to play, there will definitly be good times to come! You just need to get yourself two Classic Controllers and you're good to go. Dragon Ball Z fans will especially love Chipp Zanuff.

House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return - 8/10
Untitled Untitled Untitled
Both of these games(especially 2) destroy HOTD: Overkill. You wan't pure Sega House of the dead Light Gun Arcade action? Look no further. The calibration is arcade-perfect, so you don't have to use a reticule. Which I can't say the same for Overkill which had piss poor calibration causing me to HAVE to use a reticule. Anyways, Overkill is a poor man's HOTD, you're best bet is to nab yourself a copy of this and a Nyko Perfect Shot! Even better for those who haven't played either of these games and is looking to get a fun Light gun fix. For those who have, Nostalgiaaaaaa

Hmmm, I smell some Mushroom Men and Dewy's Adventure coming up!

I have Klonoa, great game, but I'm not sure it's obscure.

Blastworks. It's a side scrolling shooter where you use the wreckage of you're defeated foes' ships as a shield. But probably the most obscure Wii game I have is called Counter Force, it's good if you like ports of last-gen sub par light gun arcade games featuring mechs. Fortunately, I like ports of last-gen sub par light gun arcade games featuring mechs. It's good cheesy Japanese fun.

I wouldn't give Klonoa a 10/10. It's a good game, but very short and not as good as some other platformers.

Dawn of Discovery / Anno: Create a New World is another slightly obscure game. And it's excellent.

I have my eye on Dewy's Adventure. Review-wise it's been getting a mediocre wrap. But a few NL users have been saying it's actually a pretty fun game. And ya I guess Klonoa isn't really Obscure....It's actually a Great game that sold poorly which many gamers also have over looked. And Klonoa isn't that short at all...It's even longer if you try to collect everything ect ect. It's about quality not quantity. Nobody ever bitched about Mega Man games being short, and Klonoa is much longer than any of those. I probably played it for a week. Some of the hidden items gave me trouble towards the end of the game, definitly ramps up the challenge.

For me, Klonoa destroyed NSMBWii....Klonoa is higly imaginative, creative, had a wonderful surreal dreamy soundtrack, beautiful environments and it's a fresh experience. While NSMBWii was generic, plyed it safe, looked generic and was totaly uncreative. As far as 2D plaformers go, Wario Land Shake it! is king, while Klonoa comes in at second for the Wii.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you even slightly like survival horror games, you need to check out Cursed Mountain. It's not really all that scary, but the eerie atmosphere is top notch. I think you can find this game for like 9 bucks now at Gamestop, it's certainly worth it.

Klonoa Wii isn't even as good as Klonoa 2. Also: No More Heroes 1 & 2. Yeah, they do count as obscure. More:

  • Rune Factory Frontier
  • Shiren The Wanderer
  • Chocobo's Dungeon
  • Phantom Brave: We Meet Again
  • Ultimate Shooter Collection
  • Samurai Shodown Collection
  • Metal Slug Collection
  • NiGHTs: Journey of Dreams

And a few more here and there. Honestly, sad to say, most of the good games on the system are obscure and forgotten.

I'm mildy interested in checking this one out. As far as survival Horror goes which is one of my favorite Genres, I have Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition and Resident Evil: Archives. Need to get RE Zero Archives as it's the only RE game I've never completed. Obscure After Math is another Survival Horror game I'm guessing, but it totaly looks meh.

I have to disagree with that. I've loved House of the Dead 2 since I first played it in the arcade before I even got the Dreamcast version. House of the Dead 3 is also fantastic. However to say they destroy Overkill - not a chance. To be fair I like the Wii's HotD games equally - but Overkill gets the most play time by far. Oh and I also don't have to use a reticule for any of the games and always have the onscreen target off - you just must be a bad shot

These are good by general consensus, your personal mileage may vary.

Zack & Wiki was easily one of the greatest experiences I've ever had on the Wii. I'd nail it with an 9/10.....Yet I never actually thought of it as being obscure. Alot of people know about it, but alot of people have passed on it that's for sure. If it's not in somebodies collection, they NEED to add it. That aside Fragile Dreams has my interest when it comes to the atmosphere, characters and music.....But gameplay wise, it looks kinf of mediocre

Victorious boxers was awful, had it for a matter of hours because the swing control detects so badly you do one thing and it does nothing or the opposite at least 1/2 if not 2/3 the time.

Totally agree on Klonoa, throw The Munchables also from the advertising morons of Namco, both which got virtually no print, nothing on tv, and got staggered few copies here, there type releases so it was instant obscurity for the Wii. Sky Crawlers is obscure unless you know the anime, and even then it kind of still is as that's nothing huge in itself -- and it's also the only disc based flight game where the controls work right damn near 100% of the time, Ace Combat team are the only ones so far to nail that sadly in how many years? I'm not sure it counts as obscure, but it didn't have a long print run and it's an evolution of an old xbox game but Geometry Wars Galaxies had a lot going for it.
