The second half of this countdown is surprising.
Ready for the Top 10? Here we go!
10. Metroid: Other M
Metroid returns to our list for a second outing. This time, Zach Miller goes through the details of Samus's adventure, letting us know how each aspect affects the overall game. On balance, he says that if you're willing to sit through the main game, the content that follows is absolutely worth it.
9. 3DS Mario Games in
We recorded a couple of videos at E3 of Paper Mario 3DS and Mario Kart 3DS. In addition we managed to record audio samples from each of these titles, as well as for Pilotwings 3DS. Jared Rosenberg edited the clips he recorded at the show into one video and divided up the sound files for your listening pleasure.
8. Gold's Gym Cardio
Pedro Hernandez surprises us all with his praise and endorsement of Gold's Gym Cardio Workout, a Balance Board compatible game that offers more than Wii Fit, whilst being easier to learn and less demanding in difficulty of exercises. Readers surprise us by reading this review more often than Other M.
Super Mario Galaxy 2
The big news here is not that Galaxy 2 is a really great experience that refines the mechanics whilst offering brand new experiences, sharp graphics, throwback levels for everyone to love, and lots and lots of stars to find. It is that James Jones played a game that was not an RPG for more than 20 hours in a row.
GoldenEye was always about the multiplayer experience, apart from during the N64 title's development, where it was a complete afterthought. Multiplayer is king once again in both the nostalgic local, split-screen mode and the brand new online experience.
Just Dance Review
While it's unsurprising that a million-seller would fare well in this list, it's equally surprising that it places more highly than fan favourites DKCR, Kirby, Galaxy 2, and GoldenEye in the popularity stakes to become the second most-read review of 2010 on Nintendo World Report. Pedro Hernandez tests the philosophy of any movement being better than none when it comes to dance.
Racquet Sports Review
I can only imagine that people were looking for reviews containing the words "Wii" and "Sports". While Racquet Sports offers a number of sporting activities, some with MotionPlus controls, they are poorly executed, as are the standard Remote controls. Neal Ronaghan tells it as it is, "If you love everything related to a racquet, pick this game up, but be warned, it kind of sucks."
3. New 5th Generation Pokemon
Pokemon Black & White has already been more successful than any Pokemon title ever in Japan, so when it finally reaches Western shores in 2011 there will be much excitement and celebration. Matt Blundon reports on CoroCoro magazine's early reveal of the very first confirmed Pokemon for the game, months before the Japanese release.
2. Wii Tricks and
One of our most popular articles since it was posted, there are still those of you who want to find the hidden "Easter Eggs" in the original Wii Sports, Mii Channel and Photo Channel.
1. Wii Drawing Tablet On The
The most read article of 2010, by a clear margin, was... THQ's uDraw GameTablet announcement. Seriously, guys? This is what was most popular this year? I'm as confused as you are. www.udrawworldreport.com it is, then.

lots more coverage on your favourite topics such as Balance Board
add-ons (??) and uDraw (???). Thanks for reading, and we look forward to
