Best Game Console
5 Star Review  bestcovery.com - Dec 3, 2008

By far the most popular console available, the Wii packs incredibly fun, unique gameplay into an affordable package. The motion sensing controls introduce a whole new spin on gameplay, but are very intuitive and easy to use. Many of the Wii’s games are simple and easy to grasp, but ridiculously fun - even for hardcore gamers. Built in Wi-Fi lets you play online and download from a growing library of Virtual Console games that’s packed with classics. If you’re seeking HD graphics or Dolby Digital/DTS surround sound, you’ll have to look elsewhere - but if you want to have a blast with your friends and family, the Wii is the system to get.

2 Star Review     

Strengths: I really can't think of any compared to other consoles

Weakness: not 720 or 1080 for HDTV

Save up and get a Playstation 3. Better all around and in 1080 for your HDTV. This game is fine if you are old and can't get out or a kid that knows their is nothing out there better in a console

5 Star Review   By member thejgg - Aug 14, 2009   

Strengths: works great

Weakness: limits of current technology

This has to be the best gaming console that I have ever seen. I almost can't wait to see what the next generation product is going to look like. If this is anything to go by, cutting edge won't describe it accurately enough.

Strengths: Great system, very interactive

Awesome game system
4 Star Review   By member tloitz10 - Jan 20, 2009   

Strengths: Easy set up

Weakness: Should come with multiple controllers

The Wii is very entertaining and easy to use. The idea that you have to get out of the chair and actually do something to play is awesome. The boxing will give you a good workout in a short amount of time. They really should include two controllers to make playing with a friend easier.

WII jest goes to show you nintendo cant make any good games or systems. WII has 2 year old games and is maid for fat kids.Its price might be good but you pay for ...graphics like a Game Boy and 2 year old games. I traded mine in for a PS3 and I found that the PS3 is the best system EVER.

3 Star Review     

Strengths: Just as advertised. A good working system.

Weakness: Quite a bit more expensive than the going rate.

A good product, however, I paid $335 for this item and the same system is now available for $249. If I had to purchase this item again, I would check my local WalMart or Sams Club. Even Amazon is advertising the $249 price now.

A Great way to Spend time with Family playing the Wii
5 Star Review   By member scrappie42 - Sep 30, 2008   

Strengths: A great way to spend alot of quality time with your family. Fun for all ages

This was purchased as a Xmas gift for our family. We will have plenty of fun family time together enjoying playing with the Wii. We all had the opportunity to play at friends houses and enjoyed everytime we played the Wii. It will be a great surprise for under the Xmas tree. I like the fact that you have to get up and move to play the games instead of just your fingers. Really looking forward to using it. Thanks again

5 Star Review   By member mike4pat2 - Jul 20, 2008   

Strengths: Great interactive system for people 5-99 yrs old. Setup was quick & easy.

Weakness: System only comes with 1 controller...cost of system should have at minmum 2 ea controller & nunchuk

I am not a gamer so can not compare to other systems...I purchased at advice from friends for late night entertainment for visiting teens this summer. We had a great time playing and competing in tennis, bowling, golf, and baseball. Couldn't experience boxing game because the system requires 2 nunchuks...I might buy later...

Wiiiiiiiiiiiiii
5 Star Review   By member vroginskiy - Jul 17, 2008   

Strengths: Very fun, Wii remote is a blast to work with.

Weakness: Graphics not as good as XBox360 or PS3.

The Wii is a great console. It is very versatile and has family fun as well as adult appeal. The seamless connectivity to Wi-Fi is also a nice bonus. Everything about it is fun and you actually get some strength in your hands and arms when playing it, since you are usually swinging or shaking the Wii-mote. While it does have the weaker graphics of the top 3 consoles out there, it is certainly good enough to enjoy.

4 Star Review   By member saxeja - Jul 16, 2008   

Strengths: Good family fun

Weakness: Requires a lot of space

This is a product that provides opportunities for a lot of good family fun. It does take a lot of room to enjoy properly and that could be a problem for those in apartments or other small living quarters.

Wii Console
4 Star Review   By member ILJACK224 - Jul 6, 2008   

Strengths: Great family entertainment and interactive media.

Weakness: Unavailability of some popular accessories.

The Wii console is the best selling game console in the world. I am confused by Nintendo's refusal to make more consoles and accessories available. The lack of units has created a black market that has driven up costs of a unit many would normally be able to afford.

Nintendo Wii console
5 Star Review   By member monsterfx1 - Jun 21, 2008   

Strengths: It has a unique playability, fun games and eye-popping graphics.

Weakness: Even though the remotes are wireless, the nunchuks have a wire that sometimes hits you in the face while you're boxing.

I love this console. It has brought my family closer when we spend time together. I showed it to my father-in-law who indeed loved it and had fun with the golf and bowling games that came with the console. I especially love the fact that it will play Gamecube games and will also use the Gamecube controllers, too.

Wii Console and Sports Game
5 Star Review   By member Oscar1966 - Jun 14, 2008   

Strengths: -Family-oriented -Simple to operate -Wii Sports requires to get off the couch and sweat

Weakness: -The remote/sensor system is not very good for fine or soft movements such as close putting in golf

It was a great gift for the whole family. Even my 63 y/o mother enjoys playing bowling. My wife is using it for exercising and I feel playing sports in a leveled play field with my young sons

For the mature as well as the young!
5 Star Review   By member catladycarole - May 19, 2008   

Strengths: Great fun for the family of ALL ages. Bought this for my husband's 65th birthday. We play it with our sons and their spouses! We are having way too much fun! This is definitely not just for the young.

Weakness: The only weakness I have found is with Guitar Hero. I love playing it but there are no written instructions as to how you get to each level. You don't find out until you have "mastered" a song.

Buy it now! You won't regret it! Buy extra controllers so everyone can play and enjoy this great entertainment console. You will laugh at the contortionist you all become.

Unique gameplay
5 Star Review   By member tedranb - May 10, 2008   

Strengths: Physical movement is the key, not just button pushing

Weakness: movements take time to figure out how to sync with the video characters

Our whole family plays, even the grandparents so that makes this system unique. We all get a workout by playing the boxing game. However I can't figure out how my movements are being translated to the video character. In time I expect more games with better perspectives and better matching of movement to come out though.

5 Star Review   By member lamkmin - Apr 26, 2008   

Strengths: Fun for the whole family

Weakness: The graphics could be much better

I bought the Wii for my two kids after playing it at a friend's house. The sports games are good fun with realistic motions. The whole family can play and enjoy it. Highly recommended for party fun and family gatherings. One can play and execise at the same time. I look forward to the new "Fit" game that's coming out in May.

It's become as much an entertainment staple as TV used to be...
5 Star Review   By member mayday99 - Apr 8, 2008   

Strengths: It's motion-controlled (mostly), the next-gen of video gaming experience. Great internet interface and allows me to resurrect nostalgic games from old systems (Super Mario, etc.).

Weakness: Motion control is still in it's infancy. Most games don't utilize it like they should. Graphics are somewhat cartoony.

What else is there to say except that Nintendo actually found a way to get more money out of their patents for the power glove and power pad (anymore born after 1990 won't understand what I'm talking about). Motion controlled video gaming is the future and Nintendo is at the forefront. The Wii allows anyone to stop going to smoky bars to play virtual golf or bowling and do it from the comfort of their living room. My mom wants a Wii now and she never cared for video games before. The controls are easy to master, I just wish they had more games that utilized the motion controls to their fullest (give it a few years I'm sure). Once Wii Fit comes out, expect it all to change again. For the better. Yes, PS3 and W-Box 360 have better graphics, but the Wii is leagues ahead in terms of making video gaming an experience and everyone should have one in their house. No doubt about it.

Grandsons Life Saver
5 Star Review     

Strengths: good exercise

Weakness: don't know of one

I purchased this product for my grandson because He likes games and computers. But the problem with most games and computors is that your just sitting there and not moving. My grandson has a rare deseaze and is not expected by the doctors to live past 20 years of age. He is eleven and needs to exercise to keep His heart in good shape. With the Wii, He not only is up and moving and getting exercise, He really enjoys playing on the Wii.

Wii Console
4 Star Review   By member pitakeeper - Mar 22, 2008   

Strengths: Lots of fun Interactive Invites physical exercise

Weakness: Not quite as responsive to player movements as hoped - especially in boxing - however I've never been a gamer before so how would I know...

A great reason to get together with friends and share some laughs - what could be more important than that? It inspires physical activity unlike other game systems so I think that is great! It's simply a lot of fun - even for a soon to be 50 year old woman - and my college kid is jealous! I love that part :)

Wii game console
4 Star Review   By member SailorMarcos - Mar 20, 2008   

Strengths: Great colors, connects to the internet easily.

Weakness: Not many game titles.

I have the Wii for one month, it is real fun, the remote unit is awesome, the games that come with it are OK. Unfortunately there are not many games in the market for it, very limited number of titles. I went to GameStop and could barely find a game I liked.

Wii is fun!
5 Star Review   By member vvincent - Mar 16, 2008   

Strengths: This is an amazing product - the whole family loves it! We never get tired of it, and new games are continuously added.

Weakness: It is addictive :)

A wonderful alternative to board games. The whole family can play together. The Boxing option is a great way to get a cardio workout - really! I highly recommend it for all ages.

A Fun Game for the Whole Family!
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Tons of fun for the entire family! We love it. It gets people up and moving around, not just sitting on the couch hitting buttons like other video games. It's great fun when company comes over - even

Weakness: Remotes can get a little sensitive or may not work properly if you're not standing in the right spot or too far away. Be aware of the motion bar when you play.

This is a great product. The Wii is a fun game that everyone can enjoy. There are simple games, like bowling, that all can participate in and also more challenging games for the "gamers" of the family. Either way, it brings people together and provides fun and activity for the whole family. Be patient, it does take a little bit of practice develop the skill of using the remote. It is sensitive to your every move, so it just takes time to figure out how much to twist, turn, shake, etc. Once you get it, though, it'll be a blast!

Fun, Great Value
5 Star Review   By member kareninthemiddle - Feb 20, 2008   

Strengths: unique controllers, compact (unlike other consoles), durable, reasonable price (again, in comparison to other consoles), downloadable games w. internet connection

Weakness: lack of variety in games, no multi-player online

Most of the Wii's game selection are geared towards children, but that doesn't necessarily mean they're not fun for those a bit older as well (like me and my husband!) Both my 7 and 15 year old enjoy the same games, but I would've liked to see more of a variety for them to choose from. I like the fact that the console itself is compact enough to fit in most places, and it's very easy to pack up if the kids want to bring it to their friends' houses. We also enjoy the fact that most games require the kids to be active due to the motion-sensitive controller, rather than sit on the couch holding a remote for hours at a time! The only complaint I've heard so far is from my 15 year old who would've liked to play online with his friends. Other than that, I did appreciate how inexpensive the Wii was in comparison to the Playstation3 and Xbox 360. A bit hard to find in the stores (due to the low cost, I imagine), but definitely worth the money and wait.

Like the product, Not the price
3 Star Review     

Strengths: Internet, Graphics, HD Quality, Graphics

Weakness: Price:( , Value, Selection, Stock

The thing that drove me crazy was looking for the best price. Loads of places are sold out, the prices are atrocious, and when I could actually afford to purchase a Wii, all of the places that were actually "affordable" at the time were sold out.

Great product and much economical than XBox and PS3
5 Star Review   By member Anonymous - Jan 29, 2008   

Strengths: Great system better than XBox and PS3. Wireless remote is great with motion sensors. Easy setup. Can play Gamecube games.

Weakness: 1. Not many Wii enabled games. 2. Battery life is less.Wish could be improved.

1. Easy to use, even my 2yr can play game. Most exciting part is Wii Sports force your to get up from chair and jump, move, swing as you play. 2. Wireless remote is great. 3. There are not many games. But if you love Mario, Prince of Purussia,etc. Its fun. I hope it many classical games will be Wii enabled. 4. Its fun for 1yr old - 80 yr old. Great for family get together.

Nintendo Wii Rocks!
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Best video game console I've ever owned. It really brought my whole family together over Christmas.

Weakness: The Wii only comes with one remote controller and one nunchuk controller. It's handy to have at least two of each, so you'll need to buy other controllers separately.

If you ask me, this is the perfect console for gaming. The intuitive use of the Wii controllers and its reading of the subtlest gestures on the part of the gamers make it a one of a kind item. The Wii comes with Nintendo Sports, which contains bowling, baseball, boxing, tennis, and golf. Those kept me and my family busy for quite a while...bowling is the family favorite. You want to play baseball? You hold the Wii remote like a baseball bat and swing at the ball. Want to golf? Hold the remote like a golf club and let it scream when the club hits the ball. Boxing? Hold both the remote and the connected ninchuk and punch at the screen. A shooting gallery? Point the remote at the targets and "pull the trigger." The possibilities are endless and I've only just begun playing other games. I'm not crazy about most game price tags (generally $40 - $50), but that's nothing unique to the Nintendo Wii. If you think you want a game, it might be best to rent it from Blockbuster or Gamefly so you can try it out first. In short, I call the Wii the video gaming console for people that don't like or can't play video games. I was amazed at how much fun my entire extended family had over the Christmas holiday. The kids were playing, the adults were playing, even the grandparents loved it. I thought the TV commercials were a bunch of bunk until I witnessed the phenomenon myself. Highly recommend the Nintendo Wii...if you can find one. I bought mine from Pricegrabber because I just couldn't find one anywhere else. You can easily find one here, but you might try wiitracker.com to find the bigger merchants online and which ones have the Wii in stock.

Strengths: Interactivity, ease of use, sound, connectivity, support.

I weighed a lot of factors before deciding which platform to go with and in spite of the screen resolution issue (exacerbated by the fact that I have a large 1080p LCD flatscreen) I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m really happy with the decision to go with the Wii.

Wii
4 Star Review     

Strengths: Interactive controls, really make you part of the game. Adds a whole new dimension to gaming.

Weakness: Graphics are awful. I know that Nitendo went in a different direction and invested in controls and not graphics. So I did not expect Playstation 3 quality, but some of the graphics look like Nintedo64

Very fun and exciting product. I don't think I've seen such complete family involement with a video game unit. Everyone wants a piece of the action. The sports pack, although having questionable graphics, has something for everyone. Beware, the unit only contains one of the "real" controls.

4 Star Review   By member rickgopack - Jan 4, 2008   

Strengths: Easy to setup and use. Nice family fun.

Weakness: Batteries go fast in remote replace often. Best to get rechargables.

Gaming system is fun for the entire family. Easy to setup and use. Comes with a set of sports games which are quite entertaining. Extra remote is desired for two player games. Sharing a remote is a little bothersome with the wrist straps.

Wii Love It!
5 Star Review   By member sbrrgrr - Jan 1, 2008   

Strengths: Interactive gameplay is unrivaled by other consoles.

Weakness: Graphics output tops out at 480p, if you by component cables. Well short of the 1080i that is output by other platforms.

So far, so good. This makes you the coolest kid on your block. Everyone of all ages and of gaming ability has fun with this console. Online play and the ability to download old NES games (for a price) is pretty sweet.

Wii...a little too late
2 Star Review   By member JenMuzik - Dec 30, 2007   

Strengths: great for kids and entertaining a group

Weakness: a little harder for the "older", not so computer literate folks. It's been out for a long time, although hard to get, the thrill of having it is gone.

Wii has been so hard to find I was tickeled when I did find it finally. However, I guess it took me too long, because it seems now that the family isn't as excited about it and would rather sell it and purchase something else. I think we've used it too many times at others homes and the thrill is gone.

Nintendo Wii
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Fun for everyone, Totally realistic game play. Built in Wi-Fi, awesome. online play awesome.

Weakness: Some movements require a little practice to get down. Still not a huge game selection for the harcore gamer. I don't like that there isn't a built in way to talk to each other during online gaming.

I would recommend the Wii for anyone who does or doesn't like video games. It's the right step towards virtual reality gaming. Easy to learn natural motions make it easy for everyone. I would recommend this system over any other game system.

Wii is a WOW
5 Star Review   By member DavidBowles2007 - Dec 28, 2007   

Strengths: Very realistic play.

Weakness: Graphics not quite as good as XBox360 or PS3.

What a hit with everyone! Good family entertainment. Bowling is realistic. Golf - strokes are a bit touchy but easily mastered with practice and patience. Boxing is strenous but great fun.

Strengths: Product is very good at handling the remote interface.

Weakness: Cooling system design for setting up the Wii in the vertical position is poor. Need to add a cooling fan to ensure that the unit does not overheat!!!!

Console works very well and handles the interactive interface with remotes quite well. No problems to date and suggest you purchase remote charging battery packs so you won't wonder what's happening in the middle of a game when the batteries go weak.

This system is a gift for my 6 years old son for Christmas. I have no idea how it works. He wanted one and the price was what I was willing to pay. I like the convenience of shopping on-line as opposed to going to the mall.

Wii Console is Cool
5 Star Review   By member doug410 - Dec 5, 2007   

Strengths: The kids & I love it. I especially like it because the kids are not just sitting there, they are part of the action.

Weakness: Hard to find locally. Had to buy online and pay slightly more, but it was well worth it.

If your kids are going to have a video game, I would highly recommend the Wii. When we can't go outside this is great entertainment that either 1 - 3 can play. We are going to get one more control & accessories to bring it up to four (4) players.

Strengths: Fun with crowds, innitiotive gameplay, fun games

Weakness: Last-Gen graphics, boring to play by yourself, cheap games,no DVD- player, lacks online gaming, not good to play when relaxing, no hardcore games

Wii is very fun when playing but the graphics are terrible. Wi-fi is easy to hook-up,not alot of online action. Great for kids, parties, and casual gamers.

Wii is an AWESOME console, especially for families
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Family Fun, even our 5 year old can enjoy it, graphics are excellent in standout games, lots of party type fair during the first year, opening up with addition of Wii Zapper.

Weakness: Like any other system before it, it has it's share of weak games - buyer should beware!

I've owned a Wii since they first came out. From the moment you pull it out of the box, there is this sense that you're about to experience something truly unique. Set up is VERY easy, takes very little time. Before you know it, your jaw will be on the floor as Wii Sports, for all its graphic simplicity, takes your breath away in that it is registering YOUR swing for the fences, your throw of your (virtual) bowling ball, your uppercut, etc. My initial experience with the Wii and this game left me breathless. The first game I purchased for it was Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. If you're a heavy roleplaying fanatic, this is the one for you. Get that 480p cable and enjoy one of the richest environments created in the last year. The game's difficulty certainly progresses as you go, so beware. I am at one section that I've been trying to get through on again and off again for six months (I'm NOT a hard core gamer, so maybe that's it). Some games have really disappointed recently: Wii Play, though packaged with an extra controller, is at best just so-so collection of mini-games. Mario Party 8 is slightly better; I still think UbiSoft's Rayman: Raving Rabids rules the roost in this category. We've seen some really great games come out recently though, starting with Mario Strikers Charged and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. However, the hands down winner is Super Mario Galaxy. Yes, it's Nintendo's little plumber Mario, but I'm telling you if you haven't played or seen this game played yet, you are missing a real treat. The colors are incredibly bright and vibrant, and the game play, with the use of the Wiimote, is just spot on. The galaxies are incredible to the point of forcing you to replay it just to make sure you saw what you thought you saw. Mario can now move a full 360 degrees, and it's spellbinding is all I can say. My daughter loves this game, even has her own saved file for it. The Wii Zapper, a lightgun type plastic housing for the Wiimotes just hit the shelves about a week and a half ago. It's certainly a promising addition...Link's Crossbow Training comes with it, free of charge, and is an ok game - it does what it should, which is to get you accustomed to using the remote as a lightgun, and it does it well. There are at least three games out supporting this feature, with more on the way. NOTE: So far these are mostly mature games (Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, and Ghost Squad). Then there is the Mii factor. These owner-created charicatures are irresistable, no matter how much I want to deny it. The Wii just got a channel called "Check Mii Out," and in spite of myself I can spend 15 - 20 minutes just watching these (mainly) celebrity look alikes parade across my screen. Try really hard and you can get a near exact likeness of yourself on screen to use when playing Wii Sports and a few other games. Yes, it is hard to find Wiis these days, but keep looking. The unit is certainly worth the wait!!

Fun Console
5 Star Review   By member bmountfo - Nov 27, 2007   

Strengths: Fun, social gaming.

Weakness: Game selection (though this is getting better).

As a fairly serious gamer, I was resistant to the Wii but got it for my wife who is a very casual gamer at best. I am glad I did! Even the Wii Sports game that came with it is incredibly addictive. The Wii performs best in a casual group setting among friends and family where everyone can get involved and have fun.

Nintendo Wii
5 Star Review     

Strengths: product arrived quickly in good condition, original boxing.

Weakness: there was no statement in the box, or information on returning the product if its found not to work come Christmas.

I purchased a Wii, difficult to find this year, at a higher cost for a Christmas gift. It didn't come with any information on refunding if the product doesn't work, or a statement in the box, which I thought odd. It appears to be intact and the box in good shape..shipping was quick i had it within 3-4 days of ordering. Now I hold my breath to see if it actually works come Christmas morning.

The Wii Game System
5 Star Review   By member miller607 - Nov 12, 2007   

Strengths: interactive, allows for creativity, affords opportunity for problem solving, cooperation, and conflict mnagement

Weakness: limited number can play

The Wii is superior to the more phsically passive video games. It is a step in the right direction of making kids more active physically each day. It's not a substitute for outside activity, but can be a substitute for watching T.V.

My kids love it! And I got it for MSRP
5 Star Review   By member maryintexas - Nov 8, 2007   

Strengths: Motion sensing, no weird keypads. Everyone in the family can enjoy it. Really accurate movements for most games like Tennis etc.

Weakness: Graphics aren't as good as the more expensive consoles. Can see some jaggies on HDTVs. But can live with them

What can I say, this is the first product that had me raving about it to all my friends! My kids love it and everyone in my family can't get enough of it. This is one of the few electronic gadgets I think it's well worth the money spent. Don't hesitate. Buy it if you can find it! Now talking about finding it, don't go running around stores and waking up at odd hours to stand in lines. I tried that a week and got disappointed. The easy way to buy a wii is online, and you can sign up for cellphone alerts from sites like wiialerts.com (thats what helped me). They sent me a cell alert and sure enough, I was able to buy a Wii at MSRP, no tax, no shipping from amazon!

Nintendo WII
4 Star Review   By member kidcobra - Oct 29, 2007   

Strengths: Interactive games

Weakness: Graphics

I would first like to say that if you are looking for the best graphics just skip this game system. If you are looking for the most interactive and fun game system this is the one. I bought this game system because my WIFE wanted it!!! Setting up the WII is pretty simple and getting started is easy as well. The sports games that come with the WII are fun but buying the extra controller and numbchuck will cost about $60.00 US If you are looking for some fun entertainment and a little exercise this is the game system for you!

Fun Console!
5 Star Review   By member abhijeetgaiha - Sep 16, 2007   

Strengths: Revolutionary wireless controller.

Weakness: Not very accurate on FPS games.

The most fun gaming console since the original Nintendo console. Gaming is fun again. I'm not terribly impressed with the only FPS game I've tried so far but I'm reserving judgment on that. Someone will come up with a game tailored to the Wii pretty soon. The best are the sports games, that's where the Wii really shines.

5 Star Review   By member lparsh - Sep 13, 2007   

Strengths: games, the motion sensing controllers

Weakness: You must wear the wrist strap, real easy to accidentally throw the controler while playing some games.

This is a great game console for the whole family. We have even had grandma and grandpa playing with us. There are games that are easy enough for kids and non video game players to get good at and enjoy, but there are games that are very challenging for the advanced video gamers too.

Sweetness
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Amazing replay value. Intense action as you actually are a part of the game with the sensor remote.

Weakness: None really. Graphics aren't as good as ps3 or 360 but they are still really good when you think about it. It's impressive how far technology has come.

This system is entertaining for anyone, including hardcore gamers. Give it a try with an open mind, and just have fun. With trditional games, I really only have fun when I'm winning, but with the Wii, it doesn't even matter.

Strengths: Compact, Awesome lifelike "motion" controls, backwards compatibility with older games.

Weakness: Don't abuse the hi-tech controllers.

The Wii has really suprised my family and friends, the controls are very very clever. The sports game has been a blast. The game unit itself is very compact, has built-in WiFi networking, and is completely backwards compatible with older GameCube games and accessories. Very well designed! Great Value.

Wii just dont like it
1 Star Review   By member georgy1005 - Aug 8, 2007   

Strengths: Zelda, downloaded content,................. .. o wait thats it.

Weakness: sensor bar, controller doesn't work half the time, so aggravating when you play a game and the sensor bar does not work.

Do i recommend this product? NO NO NO NO one more time.........wait for it.... N0!. i was so exited for this product. i purchased it on the release date. and i regret it completely. graphics aren't important to me but for some one who is all about that. don't get this. the sensor bar doesn't work half of the time. the thing freezes alot. i traded my wii for a ps3... wow did that guy get ripped off. PS3 is better. better graphics , and game play. i would not recommend this system to any one o owned at one point or time a ps3, x box 360 and wii , and trust me .PLEASE trust me . it doesn't even come close to comparing to either 360 or ps3. THE ZELDA FRANCHISE SHOULD COME TO PS3. I LIKE MARIO GAMES TO BUT THE WII DOES NOT LIVE UP TO THE MARIO FRANCHISE.

Great console for all ages
4 Star Review   By member phungy - Aug 2, 2007   

Strengths: many fun games for large gatherings, unique design and cheapest console on the market, download retrogames

Weakness: does not read DVDs, still 'hard' to obtain compared to other consoles

I do not own a Wii but have borrowed a Wii for 2 months. The Wii is very fun but did get boring very fast. I would purchase a Wii though. Being able to download NES/SNES/N64 games is an awesome feature. I won't compare the Wii to the PS3 or XBox360 since that would turn this review into a 10 page essay. I wonder if they are going to 'revise' the Wii and make it able to read DVDs. I'd love to try the Wii Steering Wheel, MarioKart Wii and the Wii Zapper.

Strengths: Awesome arcade fun for the whole family, and a decent workout if you do it right.

Weakness: Some lack of realism in certain aspects.

Wii Bowling is better than real bowling, and some games such as tennis are great for seniors or those who have physical impairments. It's simply a lot of fun for everyone!

Wii game console package
5 Star Review   By member lfergie - Jul 29, 2007   

Strengths: Easy to use by everyone in the family.

Weakness: Haven't found any at this time.

Excellent game for children of all ages that works other parts of the body besides the thumb. The game disk that came with the game console is an excellent starter and has games for the whole family.

5 Star Review     

Strengths: exciting and easy to use.

Weakness: could get hooked on it if you are not strong enough to put it away

I purchase this item for my grandson as a birthday present. He was very delighted with it. It was so much fun, I had to try it myself. I might just buy another one for me Grampa

not the system to have
2 Star Review   By member MikeTheReviewer - Jul 11, 2007   

Strengths: fun control

Weakness: dated gamecube graphics, honestly nothing updated from last gen

people dont want a new way to play people want to be blown away with super awesome graphics and sound with high def quality. the wii is some what fun but theres no new improvements in this gaming device besides a new way to do everything..dont get it if your expecting the next generation in gaming. Get an XBOX 360! i have both wii and the xbox 360 ive had more fun with the xbox :)

Fun for the whole family
4 Star Review   By member mikeyg54 - Jun 29, 2007   

Strengths: By combining passive physical activity (well maybe not with the boxing game!)with the element of tactile, visual and audio response makes the Wii a homerun.

Weakness: Graphics are a little weak in detail, but I'm running it on an older TV at 480i. Maybe in high def mode you will see better video performance and detail.

It's a great thing for bringing together family and friends. Plus you get to work in some exercise in a fun way. I can't wait to hook it up to my DLP projector and get it going in high def and big screen.

4 Star Review   By member kahunazz - Jun 17, 2007   

Strengths: Entertaining and everyone can play.

Weakness: Availibility of software and some hardware.

This is a very entertaining game system which is extremely user friendly. The setup to play time is minimal and the learning curve for the games is small. I really enjoy the fact that the games can be played by everyone because of the game cntrollers used. The sports games are really fun to play and be played using the full action of the sport or sitting and using your wrist action alone.

Wii
5 Star Review   By member KeriLynnKendall - Jun 14, 2007   

Strengths: Everyone loves it

Weakness: Haven't found any yet

All our boys love it and are glad they paid a little extra to get it sooner. The Wii has been in use practically since it arrived. There are plenty of games for it, though it might be nice to have a few more 4 person games.

Purchase of Wii
5 Star Review   By member Doctoredge - Jun 11, 2007   

Strengths: On time, it was what they said it was

Weakness: Not a lot of follow-up

i was very pleased with this seller. The purchase was smooth and there was no confusion. Immediately, I received notice from the USPS that there was a tracking number for my purchase and that it was on the way. My only complaint is that the USPS took so long to get it here. I love my Wii.

5 Star Review     

Strengths: Amazingly fun controller, great for groups

Weakness: Don't bother with games not specifically designed for the Wii's controller

This one's easy. If you are looking for the snazziest graphics and most immersive games, then the Wii is not for you. If on the other hand, you are looking for something that's just fun and can be played when you have a spare 10 or 15 minutes instead of requiring hours of concentration, then the Wii is for you. Techie friend had a party recently with a Wii, PS3, and XBox360 set up for people to play with. People wanted to see the PS3 and Xbox360, but the line & the crowd was at the Wii...

5 Star Review   By member carrascos - May 15, 2007   

Strengths: The graphics are great, and the fact everything is so realistic, and easy to use.

Weakness: It's not really the wii itself, it's the batteries for the controllers.

I love the Wii. It's the best game system I've ever owed. You can play by yourself or with others, and still have a great time, easy to work with and Wii sports games help in learning how to use controllers. Strongly recommended!! Great investment.
