    i already have those games.

    what im looking for is a classic 2d shooter game, something like GRADIUS or R-TYPE.

    The Danger Zone
    FPS games:

    - The Conduit
    - CoD5
    - MoH: H2
    - Onslaught (WiiWare)
    - Quantom of Solace? (I've heard it's sketchy, but has a decent sized Wi-Fi thread here)

    Rail shooters (like arcade games):

    - Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles
    - House of the Dead 2/3
    - House of the Dead: Overkill

    Other/TPS:

    - Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition
    - Metroid Prime Trilogy (technically first person adventure, but MP2 has a good multiplayer mode)

    Those are the good ones, atleast.

    I guess you mean more like a 'Shoot 'em up" rather than a light gun type shooter.
    There are a couple of good homebrew ones:
    OpenTyrian
    Space Shooter

    BTW, Mad Dog McCree sucks. Aweful port.
