I have now had the Wii for a whole week. You may want to read my initial review.
In the past week I have come to see just how big of an impact the Wii is going to have on gaming. For Thanksgiving, I had my parents and grandma over. My family including my grandma, were able to play Wii Golf and had a great time doing it. The Wii really does appeal to all ages it seems. I don't think I have ever seen that much excitement and fist pumping from my family ever when playing video games.
Now for a few more reviews of games.
The Wii is absolutely a perfect match for Madden. It is so much easier when in order to juke or stiff arm, all you have to do is wave the nunchuck or wiimote, instead of trying to press button on the control. It really improves your timing when doing moves and makes juking and stiff arming actually useful. The same can be said for playing defense. Jumping to intercept the ball by raising both the nunchuck and wiimote in the air or swatting the ball just by waving the wiimote is very much intuitive. The only regret that I have is it not having internet play. I hope the next version does.
Monster Truck 4x4
This game is very easy to play. The steering handles exceptionally well. The only problem with the game is that you can beat it in 90 minutes in single player mode. Aside from that though, it is still a very fun multiplayer game for racing your friends, or even playing soccer by pushing the ball with your truck!
All I can say is, this game rocks! From throwing cows to hitting bunnies, this game has it all. It is very comical and addicting. The only reason I was stopped from playing was when my kitty hit the power button on the surge protector. Be careful! I already know one other person who is insanely addicted to this game.
