My bro in law brought one round to ours on the weekend, with a projector, had it on the wall, and played tennis, was brilliant, the boxing and bowling was really good as well, but it sure does take it out of you....woke up Sunday morning in some serious pain!!!

A friend of mine has one and I'd totally agree about the pains the next day.

She kindly video'd me and my son on the boxing. Very funny :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

I got mine from germany a couple of weeks ago. I am now a bowling pro! The boxing kills though, as you say. Talk about arm and back ache the next day! Getting my skill level up quite quick though, and me + the mrs have a laugh with the tennis.
Was a bit dissapointed with Wii Play though- not quite what I was expecting for £40!

As far as consoles go the Wii is so different to anything else out there, its pure genious. But I have seen other games my friend has (names escape me just now) that do seem lacking. But the Sports games are fantastic.

Totally agree on Wii Play, well I mainly bought it for the extra controller.

Love the Wii just waiting for some decent games to start hitting the UK market now

I've got SSX blur, which is a snowboarding game! It's quality :).
If you like the previous SSX games you'll love it. you use the nunchuck for carving and the normal remote for tricks etc. Can't master the uber tricks yet tho. Very intuitive, and highly addictive!

Has anyone got the component cable for it? Does it make a worthy difference on the quality of the graphics? The wii one is about £30 but the '4gamers' one is about £15, just wondering if it is worth getting one?

The tennis game on wii sports is fun - but dangerous if playing doubles, especially as my living room is tiny LOL

Had a quick look.

SO baiscally it allows you to play 'foriegn' games? Is this the same thing as DVD's - they have different regions? Didn't think consoles were like that :confused:. Me stupid!

I was addicted to wii sports, thought Play was pretty good but I only rented it. Just bought brain academy and me and the misus can't stop playing!

I've also got Red Steel which is pretty good and Call of duty which is mega but fast moving! Need to get a bigger tv to play it properly.

P.S. Don't get Zenda, it's w@nk

Hi

I bought a wii at the weekend and love the wii sports, got wii play but not that impressed with it, however it does show what the wii can do. Got cars in the pack but bored of it already. Want to get a shootem up type of game, like virtual cop or a war one. Any suggestions?

Also are mario party or zelda any good?

Cheers

Zelda is boring. Not played mario party but the forthcoming super paper mario looks awesome.

Call of duty 3 is good but best on a big tv

Mine's got a wiikey in, I'm not sure I'd be happy without it! I have 30+ games now but I've found the ones that lend themselves to party gaming are the best: mario party, strikers, brain acadamy, warioware smooth moves etc.

Nothing quite compares to PC gaming for single player tho, Bioshock is amazing!

Hey Les, it's the same formula as the old Mariokert games but with better graphics and obviously you use the Wii remote rotating it in mid air for steering. Obviously best played in multi player mode, as it's gets a bit boring playing 1 player, not tried to play over the net Wi-Fi though...

The black Wii's look really nice, cant really give you any advice on what sort of hardware to buy, my son has the mario kart wii wheel and game which is quite good (even though we argue over whos turn it is to have the wheel lol) and worth a buy.
One thing i really like is the guitar hero games, cant beat standing in front of the tv with it turned up loud pretending your a rock god :thrashi:lol.

Wii Sport Resort is really addictive for table tennis, dog fighting and 100 pin bowling
