  • Conclusion: Sports. While the visuals may tend to indicate that Wii Sports is more of a tech demo than anything else... it's a load of fun to play, especially with friends.

  • Summary: In November 2006, Nintendo released its fifth-generation console, the Wii. The video game company took a major risk when it eschewed graphical power and groundbreaking online capabilities for gameplay and control innovations. By courting to the casual gaming crowd, the Wii has proved to be a runaway success; the system still remains hard to find in retail outlets.

  • Summary: While there’s little to tempt old-school enthusiasts seeking eye-popping visuals and in-depth single player games, the Wii’s trailblazing motion controls make it a top tech toy for young and old alike.

  • Excerpt: I have been playing Nintendo branded consoles for quite sometime. My first experience with anything Nintendo was ages ago when an old girlfriend of mine got an 8-bit NES in her house via her little brother and we played Duck Hunt into the night. Since that time I have had the joy of playing all that Nintendo has released. The recent launch of the Wii has brought something new to the table; Nintendo has packed in a game with the launch of their newest console.

Nintendo Wii Mario Kart Bundle (Spring 2011)

CNET
23 August 2011
  • Summary: For families and lovers of casual games, the even more affordable Wii still represents the best console bundle value in terms of dollars spent, but it's also the system that's first on deck to be outdated. With the announcement of the Wii U, the Wii is a declining console. Still, its sizable and often unique back library of games is still worth playing.
  • Pros: The Nintendo Wii Hardware Bundle (with Mario Kart) has a lot going for it: clean, accessible design; a great library of family-friendly games; a still-iconic controller design that can be used for motion games or more traditional button-based games; Virtual Console library and WiiWare games that offer a unique and affordable collection of classic titles; the Wii Remote Plus controller, updated with built-in MotionPlus; and Netflix streaming.
  • Cons: Online connectivity is hampered by closed-garden design; graphics and video playback cap at 480p; other than Netflix, the Wii has no other video-streaming or entertainment offerings, and can't play CDs or DVDs; its graphics continue to look ever more outdated compared with rival consoles, and the unique qualities that motion gaming offered are now available in accessories from rival consoles; and, finally, the decision to replace both Wii Sports games with Mario Kart ...
