I remember when my dad bought the Nintendo N64 time ago back in my school days, there was actually a big hype about the console and i couldn't see why until i actually played it myself and was addicted to it.
Now with a bigger and more better cutting edge technology Nintendo have launched the 'WII', yes the nintendo wii is the most entertaining physical gaming experience iv ever had in my opinion. It is just a real pleasure to play with and is fun for all kinds of users. I bought my nintendo wii from amazon back in the summer of 2008 as i was looking for a good console to past my time. It was quite hard to choose, as there were many good consoles out and i knew i had to get my hands on the nintendo wii as it was the most talked about console during that time.
I must say i am an absolute addict with some of the games such as guitar hero and wii sports, if anyone reading this have played it will know what i mean =).
Nintendo has many variety of games on the market, but have less to choose from compared to other consoles such as the playstation 3 and the X-Box 360. Nevertheless a huge range of games is available for the gamer to choose from, i recently purchased mario kart which brings me back memories of them N64 days. Many of the games are simple and clear meaning you can concentrate more on the game play rather than messing around with the settings.
The technology is truly fantastic, the ability to hold a guitar and play whilst looking at the screen is fascinating. I really enjoy playing some of the games as the controls make a it real life experience and it is truly very entertaining.
==Ease of Play==
The controls are easy to navigate. It contains large, clear buttons and also contains information on how to play when playing a game. The main buttons to use on the pad are the 'A' button on top and 'B' the 'trigger' button, and that's about it. On the wii sports the menu system is fairly easy to use, there is only one button ever to press for the games as you are physically waving the remote around during play or moving the pointer around, which is a fun way of playing a game. The controls you use depends really on the game that you are playing, so for example bowling you just bowl like you would do in a real bowling alley and playing tennis; you would just swing the racket to the opponent. This is much more easier than to use buttons on a Playstation 3 Keypad.
I bought my wii for £184 with one game, a bargain at the time as it was going for more than £200 if i am correct. You can now pick up the wii for around £150 - £190, from most major retailers. Ebay has these consoles up for sale, i was looking through the other day and a seller was selling ten games and the console together for £200.
So what do i think of the Nintendo Wii? well i think it's one of the best consoles out there. Its entertaining, fun and most of all my nan can play it, and so can you!. My advice to all of you who have not got one yet is go and get yourselves one of these, trust me you will not be disappointed. I spend my spare time just passing time on this console and it is the best purchase iv made. It is worth every penny.
Thanks For Reading =).
