The Nintendo Wii is a great family product. Its more suitable for people over 1 and it makes the game more enjoyable and competitive. There are many Wii games that can make you lose some weight like ' Just Dance' and 'Zumba Fitness' so it is good for some adults out there wanting to lose some weight playing games with there children. The games are good for family but not as good as the Xbox 360 games as I feel that the Xbox 360 games you can still have lots of fun playing on your own. But the Wii still provides fun playing on your own just not quite as good as the Xbox 360. But it is cheaper than the Xbox 360 and is nicely playable in most games with the family. I feel that playing games like dance games really does make you out of breath at the end and you feel as if even after 3 dances your really quite exhausted and have lost some calories. So the Wii is great for losing weight. I like the fact that you can download online games like the Xbox because some games (the higher end ones) are nearly as good as buying a game in the shop and its nice to have a game installed to the memory of the Wii. I did you a memory SD card to download my games on but after I downloaded one game, took out the SD card and started to play with the SD card again my expensive game was gone and I was quite upset. So this might just of been a fault with me but I'm just warning you. Also you can get free trail of games on the Wii Store so before you spend your money on the game you can have a free 1 hour trail which is always nice to see if you like the game before you waste your money. All the Mii characters are quite fun to design to look like you and then you can even play with your Mii character in some Wii games. For example in Mario cart you can be racing round in a cart with your on designed Mii character. Or playing table tennis with your Mii in Wii sports. I also like the fact on how there is an application where you can have competitions to create the best Mii. For example the style of Mii has to be a chef and whoever creates the best chef Mii wins. But the best part of this is that if the competition was to make a Zelda Mii you could then see all the top 100 and download one of them to your Mii Gallery and then play with Zelda in Mario cart! I think you should definitely get Wii Sports Resort as you can have hours of endless fun with your family playing table tennis or basket ball its so fun! But with Wii Sports Resort the game doesn't just finish like Pokemon and your game has been completed now and its not very fun to play it anymore it great because the game does not get boring because there are so many sports to play! This is a must game to get if your thinking of buying a Wii. The internet on this game is good but the only problem is that its very hard to type on the wii keypad. Its so easy to smudge a key and then it takes time have to correct your mistakes. The internet however is quick and you can even play online 'Wii' games which are free games designed for the Wii. But its not so great for watching movies because the quality of iplayer is awful, its so hard to watch as its so blurry. Thank-you for reading my review
Summary: Good console for the money
