I am sure every average internet goer will be aware of the Nintendo Wii. Note that we are not talking about the Wii U ROMs here. The basic difference between them is that the Wii U is a lot more powerful than the Wii. But that said, nobody, can deny the love people show towards either of the two, despite the few shortcomings on the Wii such as no support for game-pads, and lesser quality graphics than the Wii U. Thus, you must know about the sites to get Wii ROMs from.
But thankfully, there is more to a good gaming experience than sheer graphical prowess. Just because a game looks graphically juicy does not mean it will instantly be a hit. Ever popular mobile games such as Mini Militia and Clash of Clans were never the ones to boast impressive 60 FPS graphics, but they were insanely fun to play.
Anyway, if you are a Nintendo Wii user who is looking for some super-fun games for free, you are in the right place. I have daringly compiled a list of some of the most trusted sites to download game ROMs for Wii for free, in the middle of my classes. I was sitting right on the first bench as well while typing this line (keeping half an eye on some mind reading seminar), so you better be grateful for my multitasking. Alright then, let us get straight to it.
5 Best Sites to Download Wii ROMs
Emuparadise is one such website where you get a ton of different ROMs, including the one for the Wii. Head over to the site and look for the option which is listed, named as Nintendo Wii ISOs. Click on it, and this will open a new page. In that page, all the available game ROMs or ISO files will be listed alphabetically.
All the popular games such as Call of Duty Black ops or Call of Duty Modern warfare reflex. It is incredible to see that a device which was launched as early as back in 2006 can still have enough interest gathering capacity that users like yourself are here. I am not complaining about the traffic though. I need to eat, mate!
Anyway, just click on the ROM that you want to download over to your SD card. You will then be prompted to log in because this website only allows registered users to download the ROMs. It sucks, I know. I don’t like logging in hundreds of times to every site form where I download something, but at least it is not a paid subscription, eh? At least we still have that much of freedom left in the open internet. After all, it is a modest form of a cybercrime (That’s right! You’re a criminal, mate!). So, make an account for yourself in EPForums, and you get access to all these free game ROM Goodies.
Nintendo Wii happens to be the first option over at this website. This also happens to be one of the cleanest and the most well-made websites out there among the other Nintendo Wii ROM download sites. The listing on this site has a lot more refinement options to it as well. You can search for specific ROMs for your Wii and have it sort alphabetically, or based on file sizes, or as per the dates at which they were added to the site.
You can even select specific region if you are looking for a region-specific game or a regional version of a massive popular title. You can select from USA, Europe, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Korea, Netherlands, Spain, and Australia. I don’t know about you, but The 007 GoldenEye title caught my eye among the rest! Brought me back the days of James Bond 1995. I was not even born back then! Anyway, let us move on.
Just head over to this site and search for your favorite Wii ROMs. Downloads are very reliable and the response time of the servers are pretty great. You will surely have a good time on this site.
This might end up being a pretty unheard name for many, including myself. But again, this kind of small websites turn out to be gems in the end, and this is one such instance right here. Nicoblog is quite a neat place for you to find a lot of things, such as Wii ROMs as well as forum discussions on a lot of awesome topics as well.
Now, don’t expect to find bazillions of games over at Nicoblog. In theory defense, they have collected a fairly chosen ROM files, but there only seem to be two pages in the list. If you are looking for something relatively new, you shouldn’t browse here. It might not be updated as fast as other bigger sites such as Romulation, but they will eventually find their way there. That said, there is no shortage of popular titles such as Adventure Island: The Beginning and A Monsteca Corral: Monsters vs. Robots.
Just click on one of the links listed there, if you want to download that Wii ROM for your console. You can go through some of the screenshots of the game for reference. You will need to complete a captcha (that I am not a Robot thingy). After which, you will get the list of available download links from various file sharing sites such as Mega, Google drive, etc. Some of these ROMs may be password protected, in which case the password will display after you complete the captcha.
This is another well-made website for downloading Wii ROMs. Vimm makes favorites of each month if you are into that kind of a listing. Or else, you can just click on the alphabets resent in the top row of the website to get to the ROMs alphabetically.
They have specified that all the game ROMs are in a .7z format, meaning that you will need 7Zip to extract the ISOs. This month (February’s) top downloads happen to be New Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Mario Kart and more. They have ROMs for all kinds of popular consoles.
The Old Computer
This site is known for storing a lot of software and game ROMs for old gaming hardware. Our Nintendo Wii happens to be one of the legacy systems, and by no stretch of the imagination is that a bad thing. Just head over to the site and search for your favorite Wii ROMs. They apparently have over Five hundred thousand ROMs on their database from over 150 different manufacturers. Now, that is pretty impressive for such a small capacity which they claim to be using on their servers (4.4 TB).
There are three types of accounts that you can use to download files from here. Guest, Registered and Unlimited. Yes, you have to register to access the download links. But again, you can access them (at a slightly lesser speed) for free, so don’t sweat it too much.
Note: I did not specify a site called CoolROM among the download sources. That is because there have been complaints that the website is not so relabeling as it once was. A user reported that after downloading a ROM and installing it, they are now facing ads all over the desktop, because of some bundled crapware that came into the system along with the file found over at the coolrom website. So you should probably stay away from this site for the time being, don’t you think? Have fun!
