Going to try some of the 'light' games there. How about Raving Rabbits?
I do wish someone would produce a really solid 2 player game on this that is a bit more than the standard fare.

Raving Rabbids is quite poor, just a series of below average minigames. I found most of it incredibly tedious, the only saving grace are the gun sections, but when you've got the likes of House of the Dead: Overkill now it just can't compete. Absolutely not what you want if you're seeking 2 player games with any depth to them.

Good call- thats a really smart game- best of the series probably.

I know its been mentioned, but Ghost Squad deserves more love. Yes its from a coin op based on X-Box hardware, yes its quite short, BUT the variety shown on the extra playthroughs is surprising and the design is pretty much as good as lightgun coin-ops get. It recalls the original Time Crisis for me and is by far my favorite light gun shooter on the Wii. Get a decent gun or a zapper and youre away.

And those cut scenes are comedy gold- I'm a big fan of McCoy the shambling, bearded POW. :)

@Superconker- yeah, youre better off getting your Wii Metal Slug fix on the through the SNK collection(s?)- classic controller supported, I believe.
