    Depends on the style of game you like but

    Super Mario Galaxy
    Metroid Prime : Corruption
    Zelda : Twilight Princess
    Zack & Wiki

    All have received universally better acclaim than any of the ones you listed.



    I also like Super Paper Mario, Big Brain Academy, Boogie, My Sims and WiiWare... but we have different tastes obviously going on the ones you listed.

    All the Nintendo software titles and Zack and Wiki and UC.

    The most played for me are:
    Galaxy
    Excite Truck
    Medal of Honor
    Metroid Prime
    Zelda TP
    Zack and Wiki
    Rayman Raving Rabids
    ReUC

    I have about 10-15 more too that are almost as fun as these but not quite.

    Out of the ones you list, Medal of Honor: Heroes 2.

    But I'd take (in this order) Super Mario Galaxy, Zelda: Twilight Princess, Metroid Prime 3, or Mario Strikers Charged over any of those any day.

    Zak and Wiki isn't available in the UK just yet, but i'm told it's good.

    If it's any consolation, i never found the Zelda/Metroid formula particularly fun either. Room-by-room action with lots of cutscenes died when they invented Half-Life 2, for me.

    Get medal of honor, maybe with the zapper too. And Mario Galaxy, Metroid, and maybe Battalion Wars 2 (and of course Brawl, Mario Kart, and maybe No More Heroes when they come out).

    Pick up MoH2. It's a good typical FPS. The closest on a Wii I've played to what I'm more familiar with, besides the tardastic AI that goes between GI-Joe violence to super snipers. The game is fun though and that's all that really matters to me.

    You already have RE4, I hope you've got into that game, if not, play it until you DO! For me it was a blast, the most fun I've had in years with a console game.

    I have a Zapper, eh. If you have small hands maybe it's practical, but it definitely was not designed by anyone that's actually shot or held a real gun -- maybe this was intentional to keep it like a toy.

    And Halo was the as much or more than a room by roomish cut scene type game as the ones listed. Are you saying with the multi player of Halo 2 or something? Because there were plenty of cut scenes used to tell the horrible story :)

    Half Life is completely different though, it doesn't run cutscenes per se, they take place from Gordon's POV. Fantastic direction.
    When you hit Hyrule field the cutscenes in Zelda games just drops right down and since it's a 3rd person game anyways the POV direction is moot.
