    If you mean light gun games, Wii actually has quite a few and most of them are pretty fun (And some brought directly from the arcades), but mini-game based like the Point Blank games I don't remember any.

    Here's a list of the ones I know and I can recommend:

    Dead Space: Extraction
    Ghost Squad
    Gunblade NY & LA Machineguns
    House of the Dead 2 & 3
    House of the Dead: Overkill
    Link's Crossbow Training
    Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles
    Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles
    Sin and Punishment: Star Successor / Sin and Punishment: Successor of the Skies (Same game, different subtitle)

    Of course, they're quite varied beetween themselves, so if they're enjoyable depends on each one's tastes.

    Now that I think about it... Probably Link's Crossbow Training could come close to the "mini-game" type.

    Ghost Squad looks short at first with "only 3 levels", but after each time you complete it successfully variations of those stages get unlocked, with different enemy positions, sections (Sometimes you have to choose paths, which take you to different things to do), and even graphics (for example a stage ocurring at night instead of during the day). It also has lots of things to unlock, between costumes and weapons.

    It even has a super-cheesy ninja mode among other things. It really is quite fun and I found myself going back to it quite often. It has that Sega charm.
