Pros:Wide variety of gaming options. Engages the family in physical activity.

Cons:The Wii is expensive.

The Bottom Line: Worth every penny, and a great addition to any family room.


The Wii has gotten a great deal of skepticism when it comes to gaming systems. It is the first of it's kind however to implement the ability of the player to use the controllers for varying purposes. For example the controller can be a golf club, a pool que, or a variety of other things depending on the type of game that is being played. The Wii also is a great addition to a family room because it combines two very conflicting ideas, excercise and video games. It brings the two elements together in a unique way that allows people to achieve more physical activity while having fun in front of the television.

Gaming options for the wii include typical video games both 2d and 3d allowing a wide range of gaming options. Also the wii allows the user to connect to the internet to access the local weather channel, the wii channel which gives you information on game issues, and new realease games that are available for the console. Also you can purchase wii points that allow you to download older nintendo games through the internet connection. You can find games like the early Mario games, Metroid, and older Final Fantasy games that can be played on the wii console. There are a wide variety of options for actual games as well.

The controller is adaptable with the guitar hero remotes for the wii as well as the various rockband instruments, also compatible with golf club, Links crossbow, a steering wheel, as well as the customers ability to purchase a controller that is similar to the Super Nintendo controller for game play.

Bottom line for me is that I have tried the Playstation gaming systems as well as the XBOX systems and I think the Wii offers something that is new and innovative, as well as more family friendly. Happy playing.
