Well, up until last week I said every 3rd party game on Wii platforms is weak to mediocre and good only in case of Rayman Rabbids...
But then I saw ack & Wiki. If such a masterpiece can be made for Wii by 3rd party, then it's laziness of devs that other 3rd party Wii games look poor and last-gen and control badly.

I think the Wii is just too hard to program for, that's why almost all the good Wii games are 1st party games.

Those guys are swiming in money, they should buy some studios to create more and more quality games frequently.

So far for the Wii:

1st party games: Mostly good.

3rd party games: Mostly bad. (There are exceptions)

Lazy devs? Bad ports?

I think companies weren't prepared for the runaway success of the Wii, and rushed out bad ports to quickly capitalize on the system's popularity. That's a shame, because in the midst of all the garbage, a few gems like Rayman, Elebits, and Zack and Wiki have less chance to stand out.

Nintendo should tighten the reins a little and make sure that 3rd party games meet certain qualities.
