15 Muramasa: The Demon Blade

Oddly enough, Muramasa is one of those games that seems like it requires you to be swinging the Wii Remote like a spastic maracas musician. Thankfully, the team of Vanillaware and Ignition Entertainment realized that they'd be indirectly responsible for millions of broken TV sets, and kept Muramasa simple. Set against some of the most breath-taking artwork we've ever seen in any Wii game, The Demon Blade tells the feudal-era tale of Kisuke and Momohime, an amnesiac shinobi and a possessed princess, set against the backdrop of some wickedly awesome figures in Japanese mythology. Simple controls, light-speed katana-clashing combat, and award-worthy visuals easily make this Wii game a must-have for your collection. With such fine hand-drawn art rounding out this beautiful title, you might never play anything this pretty in 2D again (outside of Odin Sphere, of course).
