    Help please! What would you buy for 350$

    Need some advice. My kids bought their own wii this summer. we have wii play and sports. also monkey ball and super mario party 8 . 2 wii remotes and 1 numbchuck.

    want to spend $350 on wii stuff for christmas. What would be the best use of that amount. (kids are all boys. 12, 9, 6 ).

    I know I want 4 remotes.... should i get numbchucks too?
    How do you like the battery rechargers? what ones are the best? Do they work with skins?
    Do you like the remote skins?
    And what are the best games!!!!
    (by the way we have our wii online if that makes a difference on what games are best.)
    Are there any games that you can play online against other people?
    Are Harry potter and pokemon revolution good games?

    Thanks so much!!!!!!

    Additional Nunchucks arent really necessary since most 4P games dont require them(i.e Wii Tennis) Probably recommend getting one more numchuck for the second Wii Remote you have

    The charge station I got is the Wii Dual Charge Station and it works great. Definate pickup imo.
    Some games that are a must have would be.. Zelda: Twilight Princess, Medal of Honor 2: Heroes, Super Mario Galaxy(Great Game) and Mario Strikers Charged(This one is online)

    I dont know about Harry Potter but Pokemon Revolution was pretty much a waste of 50 bucks for me -_- Not much to do in the game unless you have the DS Pokemon games

    Guitar Hero III for any console is awesome for multiple people and online. I don't have a Wii but from what I know it's pretty much the same, it's not cheap but it's a must have for anyone. However not cheap especially for an extra guitar.

    So then buy the 2 more Wii Remotes ($80) and the 3 Nunchucks ($60). Now for games, I suggest:

    -The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    -Super Mario Galaxy
    -Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
    -Battalion Wars II (online)

    That leaves you with $10. With that you could purchase Wii Points and downlaod VC (Virtual Console) games.

    EDIT: The above does not include tax.

    -4 nunchucks are never needed in any game so far. You'll just need the extra Wiimotes, not the extra nunchucks.

    -I would strongly suggest Super Mario Galaxy.

    -I have heard good things about Harry Potter 5, and my brother is planning on getting it for Christmas.

    -Like D1nner said, Pokemon Revolution is really only worth it if you have the Pokemon games on the DS.

    -Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess would definitly be a good choice.

    -I'm not positive if all the charge stations work with skins.

    -For online games, get Medal of Honor Heroes 2 (rated T), Mario Strikers Charged, or Battalion Wars 2 (rated T).

    All right..

    If you want 4 wiimotes, I definitely advise 4 nunchuks.

    So, that's $140. $210 left for games.

    Now, did your kids directly ask you for Pokemon and Harry Potter? Because, all though the games aren't great, they'll be heavily disappointed if they don't get them.

    You've got a great online game that your kids will enjoy in Super Mario Strikers Charged. It's rated E10, which means for kids ten and up, but it's only rated that way because the characters headbutt each other and an occasional electrocution (Nothing serious) I think 9 and 6 year olds could easily handle it. Pokemon is also online.

    So, if you get Pokemon, Harry Potter, and Strikers, that would leave $60. And with that money, you have to get what may be the best Mario game ever in Super Mario Galaxy. Your Kids will love it.

    Recap:
    2 wiimotes
    3 nunchucks
    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
    Pokemon Battle Revolution
    Mario Strikers: Charged
    Super Mario Galaxy

    P.S. MoH:H2, and Battalion wars 2, some of the games advised above me, are rated T, along with GH3, which you might not want your kid playing. Just a heads up.


    Thanks Star Striker for the sig.

    The games I would recommend for your kids include:

    -Super Mario Galaxy (A definate get)

    -Mario Party 8 (A good multiplayer game to get all the kids included, though the 6 year old may have trouble grasping some mini games/concepts)

    I would recommend Zelda, but it could be a little to challenging. Your 12 year old will probably find some enjoyment in it though.

    With those games above you will only need one Nunchuck, you may want to pick up another for Wii Boxing though.

    Harry Potter is a decent game. It uses the controls fairly well and Hogwarts is put together very nicely, it's definately atleast worth a rent if your kids are fans of the series.

    Personally I would skip the charger, save some money for some batteries, buy a big pack of em' or something.

    But get two more Wiimotes and 3 nunchucks, it'll make for good gaming later on.

    Games to consider are:
    Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    Super Mario Galaxy
    Super Paper Mario
    Mario Strikers Charged
