WII Console With Wii Sports in Black offers five distinct sports experiences, each using the Wii Remote to provide a natural, intuitive and realistic feel
What our shoppers say:
A fun way to workout, and well built
As I was unpacking the boxes, my first impression was the console is heavy for it's size with a very solid feel. Every part of the unit appears to be very well made, the joints are smooth, everything fits and no rough edges.\n\nI bought the Wii because I have back & knee problems and figured it would be a good way to improve flexibility. While not as good a workout as a health club, it has the major advantage of being 1) here & 2) fun. When I belonged to a health club it took an hour out of my day just driving to and from the club. The Wii is in my living room, I can play anytime I want to. The sports games are fun and give an amazing amount of excercise. I wondered how much excercise it would be swinging the remote instead of a bowling ball, but after 3 games, I was quite winded. The different sports work different parts of body, arms, upper body, back, legs, etc. I haven't tried any of the actual workout games yet but have high hopes for them.\n\nThe motion controls make the games so much more realistic and fun that just sitting with a joystick and some buttons. I would recommend getting some extra remotes. Some of the games allow 2 players to share one, but others will require each player to have their own. I haven't tried the various brands to know how they compare to the genuine Wii but I can say that the Wii remote is well made and the rubber jacket makes it easy to hang on. Beware of remotes that do not have some type of rubber grip.\n\nP.S. Heed the many warnings and wear the wrist strap. When you really start getting into the games its not that hard to let it slip and without it something (or someone) could easily get hit.
I really wanted to like the Wii U. I was hopeful and open minded. But Nintendo's draconian DRM practices and awful system software lags behind their competitors 10 fold. I had to return my original Wii U zombie U set because of a faulty gamepad. Here walmart was great they shipped my replacement set within days and I was up and running quickly. But sadly this is where Nintendo fails. See I had bought Super Mario World on the eshop and had already linked my Nintendo ID on the previous console. I searched and searched through their customer support and couldn't find the answer. I gave up and decided to simply email them. It took them two days to email me back not too long but still not as quickly as I would have liked. They told me I would need to call their customer support because there was no simple way to transfer my content to a new console. I called and while the representative was very nice she had no idea what she was doing. At one point her computer froze and had to hang up with me so she could restart her computer to call me back. She then told me I'd have to personally write Nintendo a letter detailing them what happened and include a packaging slip and all kinds of things. That's when I got a little irritated. I asked \"you mean I have to actually explain all over again in a letter to Nintendo what happened to get the downloaded content I paid for back? Isn't that the purpose of our conversation?\" I stayed courteous even though I was fuming. I listened to her steps thanked her for her time and hung up when she was done talking. I wrote an stern but courteous letter to Nintendo detailing what happened. They told me to call again and gave me a reference number. This time the woman knew what she was doing, she said I'd have to email Nintendo my old serial number my new wii u serial number and my nintendo network id and a photocopy or pdf of the return slip. Still lots of steps to go through but better than having to write a letter describing the issue. That was yesterday so hopefully they get back to me soon. The point of this is, Wii U lacks not only games but also a good online service and digital rights management. I turned to the eshop to play some older games because frankly they don't have any games I wanted to play right now besides Zombie U. If you're thinking about buying a Wii U wait until the holiday season. I'm sure Nintendo will do a price drop especially with the PS4 and new Xbox coming out that will run much more powerful hardware and has a more robust and practical system for downloaded content. I'm going to hang onto my Wii U for now. I haven't owned a nintendo console since the Nintendo 64. I'm hoping with some more future software updated to the system Nintendo will finally get it right. Had I known all this before I would have waited to buy this system. I did my research as to the product and system software I knew there would be compromises but I was not prepared for the debacle that is their download management and DRM system in place. A quick run down of the content. ZombiU is a decent game with some frustrating issues. Be prepared to die a lot. It might be too hard for younger kids. Then again it's an M rated game and I wouldn't let any of my little cousins who were under 16 play this (M rating is 17 & up but 16 is fine in this games case) I found myself having to look down at the gamepad way too often and that's just distracting when you're trying to get involved in the game. The developers tried too hard and did too much with incorporating the new technology. With a little more restraint and better level design this game could have been great. Also the Weapon system is lacking. Why does it take two shots to a zombies head to kill them where everywhere else it's always one. It just seems like a cheap way to make enemies harder. The download game nintendoland has some cool games with throw away games. I'm glad it was free I definitely would not have bought it on its own. The additional pro controller is great and I like the feel of it. The value is pretty good for this set that get's dragged down by nintendo's awful service.
I hate it. I just hate it. If you're not coordinated and\/or have some grasp of Latin dance moves, you'll be lost. The step instruction parts of the video are not helpful because the belt\/remote equipment doesn't really track what you're doing. I've tried and tried, and I can't use this.
I have wanted to start an exercise program for a while but did not know where to start. Wii fit plus makes it hassle free. It measures me, helps me set weight goals, helps me choose which exercises are best for me and keeps track of my data on a nice little gragh. I probably would have given up by now on any program I started alone, but with Wii fit plus I can see my progress. That motivates me to keep working out everyday.
After reading the reviews for the off brand controllers we decided to spend the extra money to purchase the Nintendo brand. The controller integrated seamlessly and has performed well even under heavy use. There are some things where buying OEM is the only way to go...to us, this is one of them.
The game is inexpensive and really gets you in shape. Your Shape makes you sweat! Once you think you have mastered a workout, the game will start to add new exercises you haven't done before. You have to use the game in a well lighted area and others cannot be in the room or you will get an inaccurate performance rating. You also have to wear clothing that does not blend in with the background in your room. Use the game under the conditions I mentioned above and the game will work great. Not having to hold the wii remote while doing the exercises is a bonus.
My kids have broken so many remotes. I rally needed a better solution and i needed to be cheaper. This ematic remote was life saver. I bought 3 so just in case i have 1 extra. The kids really like it. I think they are easy to use and cheap to replace.
Got this game for my grandsons 6th birthday. He loves this game. It is not too hard, but hard enough in certain areas to keep him interested. We have bought him many games to play on his wii, but this is his favorite. I highly recommend this game for children around the same age. It can be played by two people also, and I enjoy playing this game with him. Very entertaining!!
Bought this game for my son and he just loves it. He can't seem to get enough. He just loves the fact that you can inner change the characters so easily without going through different screens to do it. You can just change them whenever. The only down fall is you kind of need different characters for different areas in order to best play the game. For the most part though it's really great!
A must have for the Mario fan. Hours of fun for all ages. The graphics game play and story are amazing. Best game for the price. Even in co-op mode in the game two people can play and enjoy both taking turns controlling Mario and catching Star bits. Wondering what I'm talking about? Grab this great game and open up Mario's Galaxy.
My son is 6 and is an avid video game player already. He really likes Wreck it Ralph and plays it quite often, but my husband and I thought it was a little too old school. We were surprised he liked it so much because it pretty basic. We realize the its based on a game from the 80s but we thought there would still be more options like being able to race a car in Sugar Rush. Its for one player only and you basically navigate your way through obstacles on each level. However, my 6 year old loves it so that says something at least if you have young kids.
