I didn't make it!
Hi everyone, i’m a new member and I just want to have your opinion on the Nintendo WII Did anyone bought it ? Thanks a lot :)
There's a shortage in a lot of countries, so people did buy it.
I've been seeing a lot of Ok games for it, not much that is really outstanding.
Its a decent enough game console, and has pretty fun and different gameplay, but its lacking the serious graphics and games that most people are going to want.
Its like another GameCube i think, good console, a few good games, but its missing a few things for it to really compete in my opinion.
Personally I was excited about it when I first heard about the controller, but as I'm used to PC gaming and play mainly FPS games, the graphics are well below what I prefer and the title selection no where near my liking. The controller being limited by RF only also has severe limitations. Aim it off screen and the screen goes spinning wildly as the controller loses track of it's positioning. I can see where it would be a great family system though. It has games that young kids and even seniors enjoy and despite it's shortcomings the controller is more immersive and engaging than a typical one. There is a controller made in England by In2Games called the Fusion that uses both RF and ultrasonic technology. It is capable of replacing any Bluetooth wireless device. The problem is, the companies that own the console systems pretty much have to be willing to accept it as a peripheral or In2Games will have to come up with their own console. If In2Games ever makes a console system they will revolutionize 3D motion controllers far beyond what the Wii has done. It works more like the blue/green screen technology used in movies, fully tracking motion in 3D space.
My brother got a Wii but the only game he has is Wii Sports. It was fun at first, but it gets old really fast. He also rented Super Mario Galaxy, and while it seemed like a great Mario game, it just wasn't much of a party game, and doesn't hold true to the Wii's visions. I'll have to try some more games before I give my final verdict.
I have one. It's pretty fun, not good for hardcore gaming, but for just kicking back and having a laugh with your mates it's ideal.
As stated by others here, I think it has a rather bland game line up. This was the same problem I noted with the DS - the technology was there for cool stuff but none of the games utilized it in a fun or neat way. Because of the Wii's overratedness, it's selling for more than MSRP and I'll never pay that for it. Maybe one day when they're way cheaper I might consider it, but in the meantime I'd rather buy a PS3, upgrade my PC and/or stick to my 360.
i have a wii and i have a few problems with it. 1. there are not many games to recognize. 2. my area does not have any games that are recognized. 3. its graphics are poor. i know they dont make the game but i mean come on. its just a gamecube with remote and even then you can still use the old controlers. 4. the wii control can be frustrating a lot. thats all i got. im ashamed to have liked nintendo. they really need to listen to their fans. or whats left of them. ( a small portion of me)
I liked the Gamecube, the few good games it had were really pretty good, its just nintendo mostly gets all the kids and family titles instead games like the rest of us gamers want.
I know graphics are not everything, but i think the Wii's lack of HD support is really putting it behind.
The wii's biggest strength is its fun party games. WarioWare is riotous fun in large groups of people, because you're frantically trying to pass the controller around, and figure out what the hell is going on, and what you have to do in the three alloted seconds you have.
Wii Sports is always much more fun with a buddy as well, especially if you start getting really into it. Boxing and Baseball are always great fun when you have someone else to enjoy 'em with
Super Smash Bros. Brawl also looks to be epic fun with lots of people, though it is at least trying to offer a little more for those who don't/can't play with as many people they know.
But aside from Zelda, Mario, and Metroid, there really aren't a lot of games for the loner-type gamer, so keep that in mind.
