Wii MotionPlus review

 

When Nintendo announced Wii MotionPlus at last year's E3 2008 press conference, it certainly raised a few eyebrows. First off, we wondered why this technology wasn't included in the original Wii remote to begin with. With the device debuting so late in...

Allows for 1:1 movement onscreen for Wii games that support it; bundled with some titles.

Another accessory to buy; makes Wii remote longer; won't work with older Wii games.

Wii MotionPlus definitely provides some impressive moments in gaming; we just wish it was incorporated in the original Wii remote.

The Wii game console is a big winner, starting with its innovative, crowd-pleasing controller.

Innovative controller, Lets you download games from old consoles

No music CD or DVD movie playback, Graphics not as good as those on PS3 or Xbox 360

Nintendo Wii review by PC Magazine

Innovative controller. Fun add-on channels. Engaging game play. Easy to use and understand. Full GameCube support.

Poor graphics. Can't back up saved games. Doesn't play DVDs.

The Nintendo Wii is a fun, engaging, wildly innovative game console that's dramatically different from the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, and way more affordable, too.

Best game console for kids and families

 

Experts say the Nintendo Wii is the best gaming console for kids and families. The Wii is not known for its realistic graphics, and reviewers note that serious gamers should look to the Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim ( *Est. $300) or Sony PlayStation 3 Slim...

Motion-detection game controllers, fun for groups and families, wi-Fi, also plays old Nintendo games

Online gaming is cumbersome, graphics are average, no CD or DVD playback

Nintendo Wii

 

The Nintendo Wii is Nintendo's fifth generation home gaming console and may prove to be their most innovative one to date. The Wii offers a completely new way to interact with video games by using a motion sensitive controller called the Wii remote. If...

Delivers fun and innovative new ways to play video games ; The cheapest of the current generation video game consoles ; Wii Sports is included with the console

Does not support High Definition graphics (720p, 1080i, or 1080p) ; Only supports the SD memory card format ; Batteries in controller are not rechargeable

The Wii is a great little console with a lot going for it. The motion sensing Wii remote adds a depth and realism to games that you just don't find anywhere else. It was as easy to setup and use as Nintendo advertises. I wish it had support for High...

Nintendo Wii Console Review

 

The Wii has arrived, and has revolutionized the way people can play video games at home. It may not have the horsepower of a PS3 or an Xbox 360, but it is a unique beast all its own. For what the Wii lacks in graphics, it makes up for in revolutionary...

While the Wii isn't the prettiest thing out there today, it is the cheapest and most innovative. Its wireless controller with motion detection will create new ways to play games, and allow game developers to create new titles that utilize the...
