Wii think this is the greatest console ever.

Hello and welcome to my review for Wii hardware, which is pretty much the Wii system itself. For those of you who have never played the Wii or any other Nintendo systems or games, let this review help you decide if you want to get your own Wii. Wii honestly think this is Nintendo's best console, and will be a hard one to out class in the next console war. ( note: Wii will be having many rim shots of the Wii name to come ) Now, on to the review.

Features: 10/10
The Wii has almost to many features to list. First Wii have its online features. ( Wii will discuss them later ) You're main menu for the Wii is called the WIi menu. It is where you select through all of your channels that you have on your Wii. You can also play Nintendo gamecube games on the Wii. Then there is the Wii message board. Some of your games for the Wii have options to send a message or a picture to your Wii message board, where it can be read and viewed later. You can also message friends Email using the Wii message board. Next there are the Wii channels. There is the disc channel, which is for your Wii games. Next is the mii channel. Mii are characters that you can create, recieve, and use to play with in some games. The photo channel, using an SD card you can see photos on your Wii. Then Wii have the Wii shop channel, using Wii points cards or a credit card you can use your purchased Wii points to buy games, channels, and more. The games that you can download are games that where on older Nintendo consoles, such as the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Nintendo 64 and more! So this way you can still play those old classics from way back when. And then there are the Weather and Forecast channels. Having an internet connection allows your Wii to be updated on modern news and weather, so you know whats going on while you're playing Mario and everything else. And, just to spoil one of the downloadable channels, is an Internet channel. The only downsides to the Internet on your Wii is sometimes there is lag, andyou have to aim with the Wii Remote to type, which would be very hard for writing a review like this! There are many other channels you can download, but I will not spoil them for you. I give the features a perfect 10/10.

Controls: 10/10
The controls are one of the most unique things that you will notice about the Wii. The Wii uses controls Wii have never heard of before! It mainly uses the Wii Remote, and can also be played with the Nun Chuk extention to the Wii Remote. Your Wii remote has a pointer on it that you use for all of its interactive game play. It is used by aiming the pointer around the Wii sensor bar, which comes with your Wii. For certain Wii games, you can use the nintendo gamecube controller, or the classic controller. You will most likely only be using them for the games that you download on the Wii shop channel, most games just stick with the Wii remote itself. The Wii remote also has a wrist strap and an optionable Wii remote jacket. The wrist strap was added beacuse with things like Wii sports baseball, people would let go of there remotes and shatter there television. The Jacket was added to keep the remote clean, to have your hand become more comfortable, and just for owners of older Wii's to have something new to buy. I give the controls again, a perfect 10/10.

Graphics: 9/10
The Wii has some amazing graphics, as shown with games like Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros Brawl. Just about 99 percent of the games for your Wii have 3-D graphics. Nintendo is good for Improving lots of things with every new console, and the Nintendo Wii's graphics are one of the best examples of this. I really enjoy the Wii's graphics, and it deserves a 9/10.

Online: 10/10
The Wii is great with its various online features. In order to use the Wii's Wi-Fi features, you need a wireless internet connection or a Nintendo Wi-Fi USB connector. And trust me, both are expensive. You can download different games, chat with your friends, recieve news and forecast updates, and best of all, all of the games that use online modes. For example, Guitar Hero III has you rocking out against other gamers 1 on 1. Super Smash Bros Brawl has you fighting against other players with 2 to 4 brawlers. Every game has different Wi-Fi features, and each is new and exciting! I give the games online features a 10/10

Final Recommendation
The Nintendo Wii Hardware is awesome, in my opinion it out classes its competitors, the XboX360 and the PS3 by far. If you want great gaming, you know the right system now!

Overall Rating: 10/10
