Summary: The Wii is the coming together of years of research (initially conceived after the GameCube release), innovation and good solid well thought out design. Not only does it do everything it's supposed to, it has the possibility to grow in the future. While the ability to play DVD's would have been great, it was never designed to do this - so I can't hold that against it. The Wii's a gaming machine but also much more than that.
Pros: Fashionable white styling, offset by cool grey stand. The packaging it came in was well thought out and instructions simple and easy to follow. The Wii Sports game will train you to the ways of Wii effortlessly and continues to be a fun package long after you've discovered other games. The bluetooth controllers are worthy of the hype and provide an innovative approach. Supports older GameCube games. Channels and WiFi is icing on the cake.
Cons: The controllers take a bit of getting used to and for those of us with big hands would benefit from wider spacing between buttons as unintentional presses at key moments can be more than a little annoying. While the Wii doesn't play DVD's, something which would cement it into the living room experience, the expandability through Wii Channels and possible future accessories counteract these shortcomings.
Summary: Any game with a heritage as revered as Mario Kart will have some branding a sequel ‘not as good as the original’ and others who will adore it no matter what. Despite this no-win situation, Mario Kart Wii does its best to appeal to both groups by fusing the new with familiar gameplay, characters and courses from its SNES, N64, GBA and GameCube incarnations.
Summary: It's fun, it's addictive, it's Mario Kart — what else do we need to say?
Pros: Addictive and fun racing action — you can't play just one round.! The roster of characters is great. Just wait until you see some of the characters that you can unlock! Seriously, it's Mario Kart, people. Do we really need to convince you of how awesome this game is? We didn't think so.
Cons: Some of the items are way too powerful. How the blue shell made it through beta testing is beyond us. The game rewards stragglers too much. Trying to maintain a lead is way harder than it should be. The graphics won't blow you away and they get worse when you go to split screen.
Excerpt: To the next generation of Nintendo consoles comes the Wii. An altogether improved package crammed full of interesting features, all in a diminutive and stylish case. Wii could be seen as a somewhat rediculous name, but it does have many things going for it. As explained by Nintendo, the Wii, pronounced as "we", denotes that the console is for everyone.
Summary: When Microsoft and Sony were looking into the future, they saw faster, slicker, bigger. When Nintendo peered in, they were giggling uncontrollably and fighting over who was up next. No hi-def graphics, no next-gen video formats and not really any sign of upping the performance of the console – the Wii is all about upping the workrate of us, the gamers.
Excerpt: Produit de bonne qualité! Mais petit problème elle fait du bruit quand on envoi le jet mais pour la fonction continue a 30% pas de souci aucun bruit! Mais je pense qu'elle n'est pas trop bruyante par rapport a d'autre Je vous la conseille! même si elle est un peu chère vous serez satisfait de toute façon! et c'est du bon...
Summary: Da Nintendo lovede os en spilkonsol, som både børn og gamle kunne finde ud af uden instruktion, troede dette blads testredaktør dem ikke. Men efter en tur med den nye Wii under armen i familiens skød, hvor onkler, nevøer, børn og bedsteforældre dyrkede sport på 30"-skærmen, måtte testredaktøren overgive sig.
Pros: Anderledes styreform, Flot design, Nem opsætning, Relativt billig
