I guess it's DKCR for me. I haven't played some (Rayman, Return to Dreamland, WarioLand), but out of the three I've played DKCR stands out. NSMBW was alright, though it didn't feel that "new", and I enjoyed it in 2 player mode better than single player. Still can't believe there's people who consider it hard or frustrating, I found it was within the grasp of the average player — the only "tough" stage being the ice level in world 9. Epic Yarn was very fun in 2 player mode, but the single player just put me to sleep.
DKCR had everything, sure enough it's the best 2D platformer I've played this generation

For the record, I was going to add Donkey Kong Country Returns, Rayman Origins, Kirby's Epic Yarn, and A Boy and His Blob
But everyone kind of covered it already. Lol.

All of the games are great in their own right, but I'll go with Donkey Kong Country Returns. Each level felt unique with certain circumstances in each one, the graphics are smooth and neat, the level design is good, and it's jam-packed with action. The music is a joy to listen to as well. While the gameplay might've been problematic for some (shaking the remote to roll) it never bothered me much. I felt bittersweet at first when the Tiki Tak Tribe replaced the Kremling Krew as the main enemies, but I accepted them and actually like their exotic, slightly sinister music theme. Retro Studios did a great job with the game overall.

There has been many a all time great 2D platformer on the Wii. Is Wii the home for the genre? Maybe. Very difficult to choose my favourite. I think it'll probably be a dead heat between NSMB Wii and Rayman Origins. Very closely followed by Wario Land: Shake It and then DKCR. Not much in it at all, I could even say its a dead heat with all four - seriously! Would you consider Muramasa a 2D platformer? If yes, throw that in as the fifth fav of mine

Rayman Origins. I actually probably enjoyed DKCR more but RO was criminally overlooked.

Vonseux, every time I see you've posted I just want to tell you how much I love your avatar.
My favourite 2D platformer on Wii is NSMBWii — had an absolute blast playing it with my wife. We didn't take to KEY or DKCR in the same way, and I never really got into A Boy and His Blob. Guess I need to pick up Wario Land soon
I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

Are you sure about the very successful part? According to VGchartz (not the best source, I know) it barely broke a million units across all 3 systems worldwide. I'd be thrilled if it actually did do well, but it doesn't look like it set the world on fire.

platformers that have 3D gameplay alongside 2D gameplay like Super Mario Galaxy 2, Sonic Colors, and Epic Mickey do not count.
That's not fair. I know Sonic Colors is 2.5D, but 95% of that game was 2D side-scroller.
...in my pants.

...except it wasn't. Maybe a bit more than 50 percent at absolute most. And that's including the bonus levels.

75%, based on what I played of it. Forgot how awesome that game was. Also, Galaxy 2 was a much, much better 2D platformer than NSMB Wii and it wasn't even a 2D platformer. Lol.

How isn't it 2D? Its a side scrolling platformer and you can only move left or right.

Compared to say, actual 2D platformers like Kirby's Epic Yarn etc DKCR isn't 2D it's 3D. Everything is displayed in 3D. Therefore, it's not 2D.

Since I don't want to be banned today, I will simply state that I disagree with what you have just said. Perhaps later I will be more inclined to state what is wrong with your statement.

But its clearly not a 3D platformer as you can't freely move in all directions in a 3D environment. If you're not calling it a 2D platformer, then what would you call it? A 2.5D platformer? If so, the those are still counted a 2D platformers.

Even 2.5D platformers have more freedom of movement than Donkey Kong Country Returns. It's clearly a 2D platformer, just with 3D models.

Some actual 2D platformers:Wario Land Shake It - 2D platformerKirby's Epic Yarn - 2D platformerMuramasa - 2D platformerRayman Origins - 2D platformer
If a game uses 3D character models and environments, then how is it in anyway a 2D game? Yes, DKCR handles like a 2D platformer but it it visually 3D and cannot be called a 2D platformer.

You make no sense. Go ahead and call it what you want and the rest of the world will call it what it actually is.
