“Great family game console”

Written on: 02/07/2012 by rowellm (3 reviews written)

I've had my Wii for about a year and absolutely love it! I have a great time playing the family friendly Mario games, while my wife loves using the Wii to connect to netflix. We have definitely gotten our money out of this purchase and I would recommend it to anyone who just wants a good time. I would not recommend this product to hardcore gamers, but anyone can have fun with the Wii… Read Full Review

“Boring.”

Written on: 04/09/2011 by drinmurf (14 reviews written)

Terrible terrible graphics. Lousy range of games. All it is is entertainment for 6 year olds not adults. Wii fit is good at first but becomes very boring. Worst game console to buy, get a playstation 3! PS3's are the best gaming consoles at this moment in time! The graphics for the ps3 are incredible and you get a blue ray player with it!… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/12/2010

Nintendo's brilliant attemp at anew console for the ever expanding gaming world this time nintendo have chosen to give a new way of playing and they done this in an incredible way. There is a huge range of immersive and exciting games to choose from. I have nearly 25 games and counting every one has been incredible. I would suggest buying first party games (games from nintendo)as 90% of the best games in my opinion are first party. These are my favourite: animal crossing lgttc, super smash… Read Full Review

“I must say the Nintendo Wii was a great idea when it...”

Written on: 24/09/2009 by glenc (305 reviews written)

I must say the Nintendo Wii was a great idea when it came out - a sort of games console for the non-games market. I had mainly sports games on it and found it thoroughly enjoyable. Unlike other games consoles I've had (ps2, megadrive etc) I dont think Ive ever played it on my own - its a very socialable games consoles and I only used to get it out when friends came round.

That's the good stuff.

The bad points are that it doesnt work that well any more! The handsets dont connect very well… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/07/2009 by Taylott (173 reviews written)

The Nintendo Wii is a fantastic and fun gaming console, for all the family! The range of games suit everyone's needs, from the more experienced serious gamer, to the occasional user who wants to have a bit of fun.

What i particularly like about the Wii is the interactivity you have with the games. Whether you're playing tennis with a friend, shooting an enemy with the gun, or rocking to some great songs with a bunch of mates, the accessories included with most games actually make you really… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/01/2009 by lmdkj5 (1 review written)

We purchased a Wii and Wii Fit for our children (10, 12 & 15 yrs old) as a Christmas gift... about 15 hours of use later, the console died. I have been reading more and more about the Wii console having "issues" and I wonder how it is that they were able to charge so much for something that, literally, worked for only 15 hours of use?!!! We are waiting for our "fixed" console to arrive via UPS! We will see how long it will work this time! I am a disappointed Wii owner (until they return it… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/01/2009 by gaoler (5 reviews written)

Overall my kids like the Wii although my eldest seems to keep going back to his Xbox. Easy to use, small, connects wifi easily, games limited especially for older teenagers, mine are 14/16 both get quite bored after a while.
If the PS3 was cheaper would have one of those instead, not recommended unless you have younger children, DS users will like… Read Full Review

The Wii is a very fun console. The movement feature is also great. If you have the correct games, the wii is the best gaming console ever made in my opinion, the only problem with the wii is that it doesn't have a lot good games. Most games are pathetic. Also graphics could be better… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/11/2008 by Jaakeyboii (17 reviews written)

I advise you to not get a Nintendo Wii yes they are fun, but after the first few weeks it gets very boring, If your looking for a good console get either an Xbox 360, or a Playstation 3. They don't have a very good range of games, it gets very boring. Its not very good for racing games only sports games that use the motion senser. Its would be amazing if they got a better range of games like Gta and stuff and brought out a better controller for racing games and the original isnt a very… Read Full Review

Graphics are OK. Good console to occupy the kids. The cost, AU $394 that's one bad point, wii accessories are also expensive, I seem to be forever buying accessories for the thing, AU$29.00 Nunchuck/Wii remote AU$69.95. Not a cheap console to maintain, games are not cheap either… Read Full Review

Lets be honest the wii is a phase.....

No-one actually buys the wii too play seriously...
It's a toy too show off really than actually play in my opinion....
I have one, The Graphics are terrible compared too my Xbox 360 or my mates PS3. The only fun game I have found is Sports which was a free-be when you get the wii.

No other game have actually personally interested me for about more than half an hour.

Sorry but people must be told and actually invest money into a serious console, not some… Read Full Review
