I have a Wii, in fact I have owned one for 2 months now. I like almost everything about; its small and quiet, unpretentious, and has great functionality. Although it is not as powerful as the other “next-gen” consoles (the Xbox360 and the soon-to-be-released-in-this-market PS3), I actually find this to be somewhat of a plus since I do not have the HiDef TV screen that is needed to take advantage of the more expensive competitors.
The Wii controller (or wiimote, if you prefer whimsey) is a work of design genius. Easy to hold in a variety of positions, the motion sensing works fantastically well. Even better is that the controller works as an accurate pointing device, this opens up a whole lot of gameplay options and makes things like the Wii web browser work very smoothly.
Unfortunately, despite lots of potential, there are not a lot of good games out for the Wii yet. I have Wii Sports (which comes with the machine and is excellent) and
Ramond’s Rayman Raving Rabbits Rabbids, which is good if uneven. Excite Truck comes out in a weeks time, so I will probably grab that if only to see how well the controller works as a steering wheel.
