Pros: FUN & INTERACTIVE
This is a great gaming system. It gets you off your butt and puts you right in the game. I love it!! You can play tennis, golf, boxing, and so many other things. The extra remote and nunchuck is a must have!. Once you see how fun it is you will want ...to play everyone that comes over. This is a great system for kids of all ages and adults that will always be young at heart! It was worth all 17 hours in the cold. Have fun & happy gaming! Read more Less
Pros: Motion sensing controller, not bulky like other systems, shiny,and comes in colors, price is the lowest on the next gen market!
Cons: Cons? there are no cons in this box of perfection!
I can not wait to get one! The price could not be any better, graphics are not "top notch" like PS3 and X360, but who cares? Fun is mostly all that matters! Graphics are only 2nd in priority!
Pros: Controller, games, quiet, small. affordable
I'll start off saying I bought the wii on launch day and so far am more than satisfied with it. Yes, the graphics are not next gen, they are slightly better than xbox but, with time will probably find a medium between xbox and 360 graphics. Then, aga...in if you bought it, you know you get fun and innovation, not a supercomputer as nintendo is trying to prove is better. I couldn't agree more. I have Red Steel, Zelda, Madden, and Call of duty 3. So far I think they have pretty much nailed it. The only game I have a problem with is Red Steel, the aiming system is difficult. The controller is great for any FPS, the precision is excellent. I have never felt more immursed in an FPS. Same with Zelda, I feel as if I am actually Link at times swinging my sword. Not only is it great for hardcore gamers but, also for the whole family. My dad is now playing games for the 1st time since SNES. Wii sports is fun for everybody and so is a game like Madden. Nintendo WIFI isnt up yet but will be soon. Next years line up looks unbelievable. Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, Smash Brothers Brawl with online play. Lastly, its only $250 and is so quiet you will never even know its there. If you want the most fun out of your games, go with the wii. Read more Less
Pros: Years of gaming experience
Lets face it. Nintendo has been making games since long before the Xbox or Playstation. the graphics may not be the best of the three, but hey, i still think the N64's graphics are pretty good. besides, the only thing i can think of that really needs... top-notch graphics are FPS, such as Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, so you can snipe enemies without a scope from across the course. Sure, graphics are nice, but when you have games like Super Smash Bors. Brawl or The Ledgend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, who really cares? Mario/Link still looked good enough in their NES days, AND their games were tons of fun. Who needs graphics if you have crappy games(GTA is the most horrifically violent and pointless game i have ever played)? oh yea, and did i mention that you can play pretty much any nintendo game? yea, i'm pretty sure you can download them onto the Wii. thats like getting 5 systems for $250. So would you rather spend an extra $350 for a playstation, or get a Wii AND Xbox360? seriously, $600 is ridiculous. so, in review, buy a Wii!!! -Cubidude2 Read more Less
Pros: The Best game I've ever played
I like the wii better than the ps game system. I like being in the game. You get a great workout. I am a 52 year old women that has totally fallen in Love with the wii. I particularlym love the bowling. But all of the sports games are fun. Way to go ...Nintendo!! Read more Less
Pros: The controller is great the speaker is nice not as bad as people say. Good graphics i'm sure they can do better.
Cons: Not many as I can see besides the retailer system mess-up, but NOA makes up for that for responding to it quick.
I love this system as soon as it was shown as the revolution and then switched to wii which I like it's pretty nice in my opinion also the controller is nice I was finally able to test it at gamestop and later at my friends it's so much fun, right no...w best game to play with others i'd say Rayman: raving rabbids and Wii-sports. The Legend of Zelda:Twilight Princess is great I only played it some at my friends house I didn't want to play alot of it till I get my own wii to enjoy it so I only have a small impression of it, but it's great the manual is nice, the boxart and the disc is really nice any zelda fan would love it only if the game case was gold that would made it even better. Zelda:TP is pretty muchly a port of the GC version, but it's great none the less I reccamend you to buy this if you will be getting a wii anytime soon both GC and Wii version is pretty muchly the same, but the controller and some minor differences on the wii with widescreen etc. I give this game 6/6 Read more Less
Pros: cordless control, plays GC games, small
Cons: remote sensor bar loses signal if to close to control
this is a system that I would be willing pay more for not like some insane $600 for but I would pay extra. of coures the nintendo folks are dedicated to their fans and always start the price of their new systems like 300 or 200 or something the only ...problem is that i sit on a bed located directly in front of the T.V. followwed by a wall in my brothers room and the sensor isn't picking up the signal off the controller. good for the price Read more Less
Pros: The controller the games the WHOLE SYSTEM
Cons: NO BAD THINGS
The Nintendo Wii is the best. I played it before and it was the best gaming experience in my life. The features are awsome with acsess to 20 years of Nintendo fun. The controller is alot of fun and the games are awsome. The Ps3 stinks. I played that ...to and it was horrible. get the Wii, its the best you can get Remember Wii is better than PS3 Read more Less
Pros: wii remote
Unlike a lot of people that arewriting reviews i actrually own the consol. This consol is NOT 600$ it is 250$. The reson it is so expensive is they are showing you a PACKAGE price. The package comes with a bunch of games and accesories. Now onto the ...review. This system is a great system. The innovative control scheme is great but the graphics are just not up to par. Even though they are 1.5 times better that the PS2 they are not even in the same catagory as the PS3 or the 360. It is worth getting due to its low price but you will have trouble due to the fact it is sold out everywhere except ebay. Don't buy it on ebay because the prices are too high. Wait till stores get them and are not sold out in a matter of minutes. Read more Less
Pros: Physical activity
Cons: Only one controller
My husband and I absolutely love the Wii!! It takes gaming to a whole new era. At least we don't just sit on the couch all day playing it. It requires phyisical activity. Our only problem was that we had to buy another $40 controller just to play ano...ther person without switching around remotes. My two sisters have come up to stay with us and both have had so much fun playing. At first my husband looked stupid playing but once I got into it, it was to much fun to let down. I reccommend this to anyone who wants a game to play but with a new twist. This is something I would let my daughter play because you can't sit down on the couch to play it. Read more Less
