Nintendo Wii Controller (Wii)
Advantages: Well designed, lightweight, easy to use, opens up a whole new gaming experience, well priced
The Nintendo Wii offered a new way of gaming to the masses thanks to its new wireless motion senor control system and this is the main controller that forms the basis for this gameplay but just how good is it?
The Nintendo Wii wireless controller is well designed and offers up a comfortable gaming experience thanks to the perfect fit in your hand (no matter if you are left or right handed) that will enable anyone to be able to pick this up and play. The controller has been shaped to have the design and feel of a television remote (although thicker than a tv remote) so that it can offer up gaming to a whole new market in the non traditional gamers.
The controller has a large amount of buttons but thankfully this does not make it too complex to use for those who are new to gaming but will also not make those in to their gaming feel constrained. The front of the controller has a D pad, a large A button, power button, home button, + and - buttons, a 1 and a 2 button all make for the ultimate in gaming control yet not making things seem overly cluttered. The back of the controller rear has a trigger like B.
The controller is filled with technology and the main part of this is the motion sensors which work brilliantly well and capture your movements no matter how fast or slow. The controller transmits the information just like a normal remote control and uses a sensor bar which you place in front of your television to ensure that the information is all picked up and input to your game from up to 30 feet away.
The controller does not come with a rechargeable battery (although you can buy this) but instead uses 2 AA batteries which you will get an amazing amount of gameplay from. The fact you are using 2 AA batteries leads to the controller being very lightweight and the placement of the battery compartment at the bottom part of the rear on the controller means it is well placed and so won't interfere with your gaming experience.
The controller is well priced and can be picked up now for around £15-£20 so that you can easily have multi player gaming at an affordable price.
The controller comes with a rumble feature in built and a little speaker too so that this is a truly interactive controller that ensures you can get the most out of your gaming experience and the fullest feedback available. Both of these things add to the excellent control on offer and make this a market leader in the quality of design and creativity.
Overall I have been very impressed with the Nintendo Wii gaming experience and this is vastly down to the wireless controller and how much control this allows for you to have. The controller allows for you to play as if using a sword, your arm, legs, tennis racket and more but all with just the one controller and thanks to the speaker on the front giving you game feedback through sound effects this just adds to the entire experience you have when using this. Excellent value for money and a great design means this allows for the Nintendo Wii control system to be used the fullest. I love the excellent level of control you can exercise thanks to this wireless controller and the whole new gaming experience it opens up with the likes of sports games now able to be experienced up on your feet rather than just played while you sit on the sofa. If you want a controller that can be used easily by everyone (no matter their level of gaming experience) then this is the control system and controller for you.
Summary: An excellent controller that forms the main part of the new control system for the excellent Wii
