Detailed review
This is a great console, if you're the right person. This is really fun to bust out at family parties or while baby sitting your nieces and nephews. But all in all this is a gimmick console, if you don't enjoy pointing with the wand this is not for you.

The game library is rather pitiful. Most major names don't come out on Wii - there are a ton of children's games though. It does have what i consider to be the best Mario Kart game ever made.
