Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast (Nintendo Wii, 2007)

Nintendo's grand gorilla makes his Wii debut in this light-hearted racing game. Players can take control of more than a dozen characters from the Donkey Kong universe, including Diddy, Dixie, Kritter, and Kass, and hop into vehicles like jet propelled barrels, toboggans, and mine carts. Originally planned for the GameCube and the bongo controller, Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast requires gamers to use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk in a drumming motion to accelerate. Once players reach full speed they need only steer their character toward power ups and bananas, and avoid pitfalls like backward barrels and pineapple launchers. There are 16 courses in all, many winding through familiar locales like DK Jungle, Mt. Dynamite, and Mammoth Glacier, and gamers can take on each course with up to three friends in four-way split screen action.
