There’s been a lot of negative talk about the 3DS launch of late. Critics in the media and gaming community have been lining up to slate the quality of the launch line-up, the high retail price (and the impending price-drop) and the subsequent dearth of quality titles that make full use of the console’s features. But a lot of the arguments being levelled against the console by these naysayers are completely ignoring the fact that these very same issues have plagued nearly every console launch in the last 15 years or so.

One of my favourite activities is searching for gaming bargains; I also love to tell others about great games they may have missed out on. This article combines those two passions with a list of cheap Wii gems and why you should consider picking them up. With the recession still biting hard and the inevitable summer games drought just around the corner maybe some of these suggestions can bring you some good value fun in the near future. Just a quick note, all prices and links were correct when I originally posted this article so apologies if they change in the mean time or go out of stock!

FFCC Crystal Bearers

Gameplay £15.98

I’ve always preferred stylised games to those that try to replicate reality, and MadWorld is about as stylised as they come. It’s also a lot of fun!

Nintendo’s 2008 line-up was lean to say the least, but this little gem made it into the Christmas line-up and almost made up for it. It’s a shame it wasn’t released in the US as this was an entertaining game, despite its flaws.

Lost Winds was one of the initial set of titles launched on Nintendo’s WiiWare service. It’s still one of the best games available – although it has been surpassed by the sequel.
