Nintendo Wii

 

Nintendo's new Wii game console is a big winner, starting with its innovative, crowd-pleasing controller.

Graphics and system power not up to standard of competing consoles ;

Nintendo Wii

 

The Nintendo Wii (nee Revolution) boasts the ability to play any title from Nintendo's back catalogue. Will that be enough to make it competitive against the powerful PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360?

Sleek and simple design makes it a fit in most living rooms ; Simple and intuitive to use ; Easy operation ; Simple slideshow functionality ; Can play GameCube games ; Virtual Console ; Cheapest next-gen console

Only composite cables included ; No recharge system for wireless remotes ; Remote sensors can be a little finicky ; Limited online capabilities

Nintendo Wii quick review

 

Is the latest games console a must-have or mere novelty?

Nintendo's Wii introduced a new era of gaming by eschewing the path taken by the other games console manufacturers and produced something a little innovative.

How can one be given an Nintendo Wii to review with time up your sleeve over Xmas and not get right into it. The results? Well…..

This system will do for the gaming industry what the iPod did for the music Industry

Get rid of those dreadful Japanese comic book characters. Let's have some real people
