by Supermcawsomevill Awesome console
This console has alot or replay value. I gain more that 200 hours on the game I have bought (ex: Super Smash Bros Brawl, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars,ect). This game machine is so good that the games are perfect to play offline. NOTE: if you are going to buy this console please get the Wii with the game cube ports. It not only supports the game cube controllers but also game cube game and memory cards

Rated 8 out of 10 by Josh666 games are so cheap now......
Decent system. The controller takes some (a lot) getting used to. Hardcore gamers think it's a joke, and I can see why, but I grew up on Mario and Zelda. If I want a lot of blood and guts I'll watch a horror movie. Just wanted to correct the review below. You CAN still download the old games. The Nintendo wifi network and Nintendo Club are down but the Virtual Console is still up and has no plans of being taken down.
Rated 8 out of 10 by FPSRUSSIAN27 Solid Console, Some minor flaws.
Overall this is a pretty solid console. It brings a different type of gaming style. The controller and nunchuck take some getting used too, but this is a awesome touch to gaming once you get used to the controls.
There is a solid array of games available for this system. I am a huge FPS type of gamer, if you are as well then this may not be the system for you. Although FPS games aren't horrible on here, the controls are not as easy as playing games like Call Of Duty on the 360 or PS3.
When it comes to graphics this console will not compete as well like the PS3 and 360. But this system is great graphically in it's own way. People complain the graphics are too cartoonish, perhaps in a way, but the genre of games you will play on this console need these types of graphics!
Another benefit to this console is it is Gamecube compatible. So this system will play Nintendo Gamecube games as well! And you can use a Gamecube controller which is an added bonus!
Now for the flaws. The flaws are minor in my opinion. The Wii sensor bar seems to act up a good bit. Sometimes the sensor is just going bad, and sometimes it's an easy fix like adjusting the bar sensitivity in the Wii menu. Also you can no longer use the Wii Channels. So you cannot go on the Wii Shop Channel and download older games.
Overall I enjoy this console very much and I feel it's worth the money. Good selection of games, good graphically and good value!
