4.5 A console with potential, but failing through poor software DanielM2006 | 26/07/2009 | See all DanielM2006's reviews (5) I bought my Wii Console over a year ago and I have to say it's design and set up is fantastic. Very novel and a huge amount of potential. There is only one thing letting this down and thats the content of software. Nintendo has produced some excellent starter software in Wii Sports with the Wii Remote (which to this day is still the best game on the market to use the Wii Remote in such an effective way) and then Wii Fit came along an added another whole new dimension and gave the console such a potential future. Then it all started to go downhill from there. Numerous amounts of cross-platform games who completely fail to make the Wii remote work properly (Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is ony of the most guilty). I was starting to lose hope when Nintendo announced Wii Sports Resort. My hope was restored awaiting a release from Nintendo who is the only company making full use of it's console; and then they let me down,; the one company who I thought knew how to use their console to the fullest. Wii Sports Resort is nothing like what I was expecting. Are Nintendo taking the same route as some of the other software manufactures or have they started to give up on their own console. Whatever it is, I feel this console is screaming for top software manufaucturers to take full advantage of it's potential while it still has life left in it. Red Steel 2 seems to be the one doing that with the Wii MotionPlus, but I am so skeptical. A lot has to happen in the next year to turn this around. I am hopeful that someone out there will produce something worth while. And for heavens sake, please stop rushing out cross-platform titles please.If you plan on buying a Wii Console, I would recommend it with Wii Fit, but a word of warning, don't expect anything more from other software, at least not yet. Trial some of the other software if you must, but there is so little worth buying and keeping.My last word: Nintendo please do soemthing to stretch the console to the limit, I have some ideas and would love to share them with you.
