Pros:Huge, family-oriented game selection, great features.

Cons:none

The Bottom Line: I'd reccomend the Nintendo Wii to anyone who wants good, clean fun.


I wanted to buy a Wii ever since they originally came out, and now that I have one, I absolutely love it.  For starters, I bought a black Wii, which I like because it looks sleeker than a white Wii, and because of the fact that most people own a white Wii, I knew that the black would be different.  My Wii came with a Wii remote, a Nunchuck Controller, a Wii Motion Plus, and two games.

The first game is Wii Sports, which includes Tennis, Baseball, Boxing, Bowling, and Golf.  It also includes training activities that aid you in getting better at the actual Wii Sports games.  The second game that came with my Wii is Wii Sports Resort.  This includes, archery, basketball, Frisbee, Cycling, Wakeboarding, Table Tennis, Bowling, Golf, Power cruising (Jet Ski), Canoeing, and "Air Sports".  The bowling is divided between the normal ten-pin game and a slightly more difficult hundred-pin game.  The Frisbee is divided between "Frisbee Dog," which is where you throw a frisbee and it is caught by a dog for points (the closer you get to the target, the higher your score becomes), and "Frisbee Golf," which is where you play golf by throwing Frisbees instead of hitting golf balls.  The "Air Sports" is divided into sky diving and "Island Flyover," which is where you are placed into a small plane in order to tour the island.  So far, those are the only two games that I have for my Wii, but I have every intention to buy Wii fit Plus, Mario Kart Wii, and Super Mario Bros. Wii, along with some other games.

My favorite thing about the Wii is that it helps get rid of "couch potatoes."  This is due to the fact that most of the games to be played on the wii require you to get up and move around, and this means smaller waistelines for everyone.  It also means that people get that much more exercise, while playing video games.  I also like the fact that, unlike Playstation and Xbox, which tend to have more violent games, the Nintendo Wii has more family-oriented gaming options, which, in my opinion, are more fun (If you gave me the option of playing Halo or Mario Kart, I'd pick Mario Kart).

Another cool feature of the Wii is that you can play the games from older systems on it.  For Gamecube games, you just insert the Gamecube game disk, plug in the Gamecube Controllers, plug in th Gamecube memory card, and start playing.  To play games of even older systems, you'd have to purchase the games through the "Wii Shop" Channel in exchange for "Wii Points" which you can also purchase in the "Wii Shop" Channel via a major credit card.  The fact that the Wii can do this disprooves peoples' claims that the Wii doesn't have very many options, when in fact, it does.

So far, I've only talked about the Wii's gaming capabilities, but through the Wii, you can also surf the Internet, check your local weather, catch up on the news, view photos out of an SD card, edit photos, and watch movies from Netflix.  With all of this said, is the Wii really worth the $199.99 I paid for it?  By all means, YES!
