9. Nintendo Land
What is it? To misquote the Marks and Spencer's advert, these aren't just mini-games, these are Nintendo mini-games. Mini-game compilations may have blighted Wii, but these attractions based on classic Nintendo franchises (and the Game And Watch Octopus) have much so more depth than your average (actually, make that dreadful) Carnival Game it almost seems rude to call them mini-games.
There are games based on Mario, Zelda, Pikmin and Metroid and the best ones have one player on the GamePad challenging friends who are doing something different on the Remote. So, in Mario Chase, for example, one player on the GamePad is attempting to hide from the others while Luigi's Ghost Mansion has one player as the ghost attempting to catch Miis who try to startle the spook with their torches.
What we said: Nintendo might have begun to embrace the online world, but this is a clarion call for local multiplayer. Matching experimentation with (almost) consistently brilliant gameplay, this is as much a marker of what's to come as it is an excellent launch game.
