Metacritic's Best Wii Games of 2008

As 2008 is coming to a close it’s time to check out Metacritic’s best videogames of 2008. Here you can see a breakdown of the top 5 games for all systems as decided by the average score from all the professional reviews which were tracked.

The results from the Wii top 5 is quite interesting as 3 of the 5 games are WiiWare games! Not bad going we think:


It will come as no surprise that World of Goo and Tetris Party feature in this list given all the excitement about both games. What might surprise you is the inclusion of the mysterious MaBoShi: The Three Shape Arcade which proudly sits in the #3 spot.

If you are in North America we wouldn’t blame you for not even remembering what MaBoShi is as it hasn’t come out in your region yet. We are expecting it to be out in North America next Monday (29th Dec) or early in the new year under the revised title of MaBoShi’s Arcade so you can get your hands on it then.

Before we get too excited and claim that WiiWare is propping up the overall quality on the Wii it is worth noting that the dud of the list is the dastardly SPOGS Racing, although the overall 18/100 rating is also shared by Pong Toss!

What are your thoughts on these findings?
