Top 5 Party Games

We all know that the Wii is filled with mini game compilations - but which of them are actually good? We've taken a look across the Wii library to let you know which five games we think would be best to get out at a party.

5 - Super Smash Bros Brawl

Ok, so it's not much of a party game as such, but it's still great fun in multiplayer, and has loads to do. See how everyone does in the coin battle, before watching them tear out their hair in Cruel Brawl. It can take a bit of getting used to, but you'll be able to get up to 16 friends fighting like a (semi)pro in no time!

4 - Mario Kart Wii

Again, it's not much of a party game as such, but with three friends, the fun is almost endless. Newbies can have a go with the Wii wheel, or if there's someone who's really good, they could choose a naff Kart to give the other players a chance, before showing everyone how it's done in the battle mode.

3 - TV Show King (WiiWare)

There's nothing like a bit of TV Show King to keep the laughs going at a party. The hilariously easy questions keep popping up, whilst being spaced out by the trickier ones, to show who's the best when it comes to brains, rather than skills. The dumb one keep getting them wrong? The wheel of money is bound to turn everything upside down, and double the excitement.

2 - WarioWare Smooth Moves

This one's a great one, because you can use just one remote between up to twelve people! Taking it in turns to attempt a simple mini game whilst everyone shouts out what you have to do can be pretty catastrophic, but funny when you see the motions that players have to make! Bored of the mini games? Why not try everyone at darts instead!

1 - Bomberman Blast (WiiWare)

8 players get round the screen for the brilliantly addictive Bomberman, as you catch the crown, dodge the air raids or just play the normal mode. Bomberman in multiplayer is a great treat that you can experience with your friends over and over again, since the tables can often turn when it comes to winning each round.

So go on, why not try your hand at some of these when a few friends come round?
