Official Wii Remote Control
Advantages: easy to use, comfortable, great design
A couple of years ago when the wii was first released one of our Christmas presents to use as a family was the wii console. We were all very excited about using the wii and were all very eager to have a go.
In order to use the wii it comes with 1 controller. If like us you want to play as a family you can buy extra controllers from various retailers such as Argos, amazon and other gaming stores.
The design of the wii controller is fairly simple. The body of the Wii Remote measures 148 mm long, 36.2 mm wide, and 30.8 mm thick. Being quite thin makes the controller easy to hold and grip tightly, it is much like holding a remote.
As well as being easy to hold the controller is also very light making it easy to move around and play with. The added wrist strap makes the controller comfortable to use and gives the user peace of mind that you are not going to throw the controller during game play. This may seem unlikely but it happened to us during a vigorous game of tennis and ended with a shattered light bulb. The wrist strap can be adjusted to fit any wrist size without any difficulty.
All of the buttons on the wii controller are very self explanatory. You have the power button, directonal buttons, A and B, Home, Plus and minus and buttons 1 and 2 which enable the user to switch between roles when playing a game with somebody else.
The buttons do not interupt gameplay and are of a good size.
The controller also has a speaker inside it which adds to the gameplay experience. The sound is very clear and does not become at all muffled when shaking the controller during gameplay. For games such as wii fit this comes in very handy as you can do some exercises whilst watching the telly and still keep track of your progress by listening to the speaker.
In order to use the wii controller you need to insert 2 AA batteries. I have found that the controllers are fairly good when it comes to battery power and they tend to last a long time, however this will also depend on how often you play on your wii.
The controller works with the wii sensor bar to point at the image on the television. This is very simple and something that anyone of any age would be able to understand, this is what makes the wii such a great family game.
One of these wii remote controllers will cost you around £15 online. This may seem a bit expenisve but it is definitely worth it to get all of the family or all of your friends playing the wii.
All in all I really like this controller. It is easy to use and provides the user with a fun but comfortable gaming experience. I give this one the full 5 stars.
