- Game library Lots of shovelware. The library's strength is in kids and family games. Hardcore gamers will find little that satisfies them.
- Graphics The Wii's graphical capabilities were truly outdated on launch. Five years hasn't done it any favors.
- Controller(s) On one hand, motion controls can be fun if used well. On the other hand, most of the time the developers haven't used them well.
- Design and form factor Beautiful looking system without a doubt. Fits well in any entertainment center.
- Other features (media, online, etc.) Online support is horrific, store interface is a mess. The only media that you can use with it are photos you upload and Netflix.
- Noise Whisper quiet after initial startup.
The Wii is great for what it is, which is being a gaming system for young children and people that previously have never been into gaming. If you're in the market for a gaming system that plays *all* the latest and greatest games, you shouldn't be looking here. If you're looking for a fun novelty for parties and family gatherings, you'll be satisfied with the offering from Nintendo.
