"Wii Play to Win"
I got my Wii last year over the summer. I wanted it really bad, it looked amazing. I couldn't wait to try out all the sport games. I had no doubts about it being great, and I was right!
~Meet The Miis
The mii channel was a great feature. It's really fun to make look alikes to yourself and others. I had a lot of fun making them. It is really fun to make crazy miis as well! One of the things I didn't really like was there was no like-able long hair. Another thing I noticed was great mii channel music. I couldn't get it out of my head!
I never really wanted to try the other channels, and I don't think I will. I'll just stick with the games. It seemed a little pointless to but points to use an internet connection you could already use on your own computer.
The Wii offers many great titles, which are all great games. Wii Sports included with the Wii, had a variety of fun games everyone will enjoy. I also love the fact that most games are physical and your not just sitting down pressing some buttons. If you liked Wii Sports, you might enjoy Wii Play. Another thing I liked is the fact you can also play Gamecube games on it.
There are also a lot of non-physical titles with great gameplay. Most games had music that would keep you humming for a while. Some graphics could of been a little better, but I was satisfied.
THE WIIMOTE AND DIFFICULTIES
The Wiimote is by far the best controller ever in my opinion. As I said before, the physical aspect is a great addition. But, in some games, the controlling was a little hard. For example, in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, there were some hard controls to it.
Also, in other games, there were different controllers. I personally think these controls failed to impress me. In Guitar Hero III, the buttons were harder to press than on PS2. In Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party, the arrows had to be stomped on to actually work.
In conclusion, the Wii is a great console. It was a new experience for gaming I wouldn't of imagined. Even though it has its cons, I strongly recommend it to gamers ( and for athletes, you should try out games like Wii Sports ).
Overall Score- 9/10
Reviewer's Rating: 4.5 - Outstanding
