"Still Nintendo, still disappointing"0.5 starson by mattliptak
Pros: Looks like it has tremendous possibilities with new controller and new TVii
Cons: In reality the controller is clumsy and huge and graphics are still terrible and game play is still Nintendo and poor execution
Summary: What could of been a upgraded sophisticated new start to the failing Wii line has just gotten worse and now pile on a huge clumsy touch screen controller and an all around bad interface and games and the same old dumb menus, sub par graphics and now this stylus with touchscreen to try and play awkwardly, making you fumble around learning when all you want to do is play. Nintendo tried to upgrade to HD graphics and they allowed the offline play with this huge touchscreen controller, but it just fails all around. The controller is so strange to hold and weird to control, you almost feel like you stepped back in time to 1985 and you are holding a huge brick cell phone. I had this system exactly 2 weeks and I tried both Nintendo Land and Super Mario U and these both are terrible. This system is not worth $20 let alone $350 for the deluxe system. When it really comes down to it, it is the same old Nintendo with a loss of horsepower in the gaming industry. This looks like they rushed this to market in time for the holiday and missed out on all sorts of cool things they could have done. To boot they are rolling out a TVii interface which they say will control your TV watching whatever that means. Lets face it, no matter how you slice it, this is still Wii and will never measure up to the likes of Playstation or XBox. There is no get off the couch and play like the first Wii, it is now sit on the couch and touch a screen or draw and stumble your way through a game. I returned this entire console and games and washed my hands of Nintendo forever. Save yourself from the waste of time and money and stick with the major gaming systems or you will be sorely disappointed.
