"One Great Package"
5 stars"

Since its release in 2006, Nintendo's Wii has marked its place in gaming history. After the release of the Gamecube (which had some good games) many thought that Nintendo was over. Microsoft had entered the gaming market with the Xbox, and now the Xbox 360 (which is lacking in sales) and Sony's Playstation was feeling like the new king. However, PS3 sales were low at first, thanks to it's steep price and lacking number of games (this has all changed now, though)

But even two years on, the Wii is the top seller month after month after month. And it is for a good reason. I own every games console – even consider myself a hardcore gamer, but I still play my Wii (which I have had since launch) every day and it still is brilliantly fun.

Next year, Some pretty exciting additions are coming. Wii Motion-Plus is going to further revolutionize motion controls, and with the release of Wii Sports 2 is imminent.

One other thing, 2008 saw the release of Wii Fit, Wii Music but I do feel that the Wii still lacks the release of enough top quality AAA titles, sure, I still play Resident Evil 4, Wii Sports, even Mario Party or Mario Kart when friends are over, but Im hoping that Nintendo has some big things planned for next year, to ensure that my Wii will continue to see the love it does now.

"FUN!"
5 stars"

Hardcore gamers will get bored of this fairly quickly, no doubt about it. It can also be expensive if you want all 4 remotes/nunchuks. You don't really need any more than 2 nunchuks though, and if you can get 2 extra nunchuks in combo with 3 games at the moment, so it's not so bad.

However, once you have them it is a joy. Most of the games are casual – you can pick them up, play for an hour or two then put away no biggie. There's not many games you would sit and play for hours on end, except maybe Zelda.

However, if you're after FUN! And I mean laughing with friends, by yourself, then the Wii is WAY the best. I've owned consoles/PCs for years, and rarely had genuine laugh our loud crazy FUN like I have with the Wii. There are really a lot of great fun games out there, though generally 3rd party manufacturers have done a poor job compared to Nintendo's first party titles. For example, Wii Sports Golf is STILL the best golf game out there sadly enough, even with Pangya and Tiger Woods ‘07/’08.

But by the middle of this year, the following titles will be available:

Mario Kart Mario Galaxy Zelda We Love Golf/Tiger Woods '09 (? – maybe later in year?) WarioWare Smooth Moves Super Smash Brother's Brawl Wii Fit Bully Scholorship Edition Spore Geometry Wars: Galaxies Mario Strikers Charged

That is a very impressive list of genuine top tier games. Yup, most are designed to be played with other people, but that's what the wii is all about.

As a side note: The Wii remotes and Nunchuks are WAY too expensive in NZ, considering the currency rate. There's something very wrong there.

"And now for something completely different..."
5 stars"

Probably the greatest innovation in gaming since its inception!

This is a console that is so much more than the sum of its parts, essentially this console is dragging us into a new interactive reality, it may not give us the in depth graphics of the PS3 or the x360, and it may not carry such block busters as Halo 3, but what other console gives you a workout at the same time as playing your games? And in all honesty, I can't remember the last time I had so much fun in a gaming environment as with the Wii!!

This is just what the doctor ordered! For many of us, our way of life sees us going to work, then settling in for the evening with only a DVD or a game to keep us company… what if that game required more than just a mental workout?

Nintendo have shown us time and again that innovation is their true skill, the Wii again leads the field of the consoles with it's innovative (yet, amazingly simple) interface, and a re-hash of some classic games, along with many new arrivals!

Wii sports on its own, as packaged with the Wii is enough to keep even the most hardy of console jockey's occupied for many hours! With its array of “quirky” games, even the most hardy of gamers (such as myself) can find many varied games to enjoy… sometimes in the least expected genre!

To play on one is to love it, to own one is to be the envy of your friends! The only niggle I could ever find with this is that you get merely one controller with what is obviously a party machine, and to expand for up to 4 players does not come cheap, but in the end… for those lazy (well, not anymore!) nights in, it's worth it!

Play and enjoy!

"Everything I wanted it to be"
5 stars"

I was in two minds about the Wii because of the price, but was excited about the potential of the new control system. In the end I bit the bullet, and boy was I impressed!

It is impossible for anything hyped up to live up to all expectations, but the Wii got about as close to that as anything could. Family members who were casual gamers were able to intuitively play the bundled Wii Sports games, and a toddler was even able to steer a cow in a Wii Play mini-game (purchased separately) without any instruction when passed the Wii-mote!

It is early days, but it is clear that the new control system could (and should) be a real winner, and provides Wii with a true gaming point of difference that other consoles struggle to achieve. Sure, the graphics are never going to compete with the more powerful consoles, but what it lacks in graphics it makes up for in heart, style, and pure entertainment.

Nintendo intended for the Wii to bring fun back into gaming, and it certainly achieves this. This console should not disappoint anyone looking for something that offers the full range of deep and involved titles like Zelda, to casual and fun social gaming titles that the Wii hardware naturally lends itself to.

Finally, this is one of the best out of the box experiences ever. When you open your Wii, not only will you have a beautiful console to adore, but you get an excellent game included so you are immediately ready to go, as well as lots of genuinely fun things to explore in the Wii channels. These add lots of value that may not been apparent prior to purchase :)

A truly no regrets purchase that will make you the envy of your friends (young AND non-young).

"better than Ps3"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Well, ive had my Wii since lunch date, and its been used every single day since, We had a PS3 (found out it was like a flower, was pretty at first, then just rotted) Since this time my bother has sold his PS3 and purchased his own Wii. My whole family now enjoys many of the mutilplayer games (espc Wii Sports) Many of my friends who have visited and enjoyed the experiance have gone on to purchase their own systems, as they themselves enjoyed it so much. So to anyone looking for a system that is great for large groups of friends (or solo) and one that wont hurt the budget (come on PS3 = same price as a house) then the Wii is the way to go.

"Its time to loose weight!"
5 stars"

Because the nintendo uses controllers that have sensors and are wireless it is a great way of getting your dayly exercize without stepping a foot out the door! It comes with the sport game that has many different games you can try which all require you to move lots. I liked the baseball and the tennis the best give you a great arm workout as you swing that bat or racket around like there is no tomorrow.
