BURSTING FOR A WEE

Advantages: Good price. Hours & hours of fun. Lots of useful features.
I bought a Nintendo Wii about 2 weeks ago and I am now in love.
It is absolutely brilliant! It came with Wii Sports which has five basic but fun games to enjoy (Boxing, Baseball, Golf, Ten Pin Bowling & Tennis). Tennis and Ten Pin Bowling are the ones which grab my interest the most.
You can 'make' funny little characters called Miis, which you can make look something like yourself and then use them to play the games.
The playability of the Wii is immense. Where other console manufacturers get caught up on having the best graphics and hard disk space etc, Nintendo have gone back to basics and made a FUN games console.
If you play with the curtains open, as I do, you can look like a bit of a tool to passers-by as you swoop around the room, lunging for virtual tennis balls and things. So beware!
I have been enjoying the feature of downloading games from old consoles direct to the Wii. I'm going through all the games I used to play when I was 7 or 8 and they still seem great, with a little added flavour of nostalgia they're just as enjoyable now as they were then. Though I must say I was better at the NES version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in 1989 than I am now. Well, it's tricky....ok?!
In order to play these old games you just flip the Wii remote around and use it lthe same as an old control pad. Simple :-)
Being able to browse the internet and watch youtube and stuff on the tele is another handy feature.
I've only just started playing against people from all over the world via WiFi...... it seems I'm NOT the expert at Water Warfare that I thought I was, as I keep getting beaten very, very easily. But it's so much fun and quite exciting being able to just switch the Wii on and start playing other users from wherever.
I paid £129 for my Wii, 2nd hand with a few games. And it has been well worth it. The money I have and will save from staying in rather than going to the pub is very welcome.
Summary: I should've bought one sooner
