Christmas Gift Guide: Games For The Kids

December 19, 2011

Looking for games the kids will love this Christmas? All of these games can be played with the whole family, and we’ve also chosen Wii games like Just Dance 3 which get your kids up and moving!

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Zelda: Skyward Sword is one of the most highly anticipated games on Wii, a fitting swansong to an interesting era of gaming from Nintendo and its Wii console. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is finally here for the masses, bringing with it claims of perfect 1:1 sword-play, an epic quest and a new take on the familiar Zelda experience.

New Super Mario Bros Wii. Now players can navigate the side-scrolling worlds alone as before or invite up to three others to join them at the same time on the same level at any point in thegame for competitive and cooperative multiplayer fun.

Mario Kart Wii. Mario Kart Wii comes bundled with a new and intuitive accessory – the Wii Wheel, which makes it one of the most accessible Mario Kart games to date and allows complete novices to compete with ease and comfort, ensuring no one is left in the dust.

Kirby’sEpic Yarn. Kirby’s first console platform game since the Nintendo 64 days introduces an amazing new look based on animated yarn and a world of cloth and textiles. The creative approach is woven directly into the game play and allows the ever-morphing Kirby to take on a variety of new forms.

Sonic Generations. Set across three defining eras from 20 years of Sonic the Hedgehog video game history, the instantly recognizable environments of Sonic Generations have been re-built in stunning HD and are now playable in both classic side scrolling 2D from 1991, as well as modern 3D style found in Sonic’s most recent adventures.

Just Dance 3. Just Dance is back and the party is bigger than ever before. Just Dance 3 gives a new twist on the already popular and addictive dance game. Just Dance 3 kick-starts the party with 40+ tracks from multiple genres, featuring popular artists, and chart-topping tracks.
