  1.  Pleasantly surprised

    Posted: 

    Pretty good for what are essentially bargain basement speakers.
    No real bass to speak of and it breaks up a little bit at max volume (it's fairly loud), but considering the price this is an easy 5 stars.

  2.  It works. I'm not complaining about the picture.

    First of all, if you have component cable inputs on your TV, then get the wii component cable instead for an even better picture. But for those of us who still haven't got a High-def TV, these cables will give the best possible picture.
    I played Mario Galaxy, Resident Evil 4, Zack & Wiki, and a few others. The difference is noticeable. Even on the wii menu you'll see deeper reds, greens and blues. Small text will look crisp and easy to read. Personally, I think it should have been boxed with the wii. So why have I given it 3 stars?
    First, they lost a star because the RGB cable doesn't carry the WSS (widescreen signal). For me, I only have to press a button twice on my TV remote to change it from 4:3 to 16:9, but other TV's aren't so easy to work with. If you can't switch from 4:3 to 16:9 fairly easily, just don't get the cable.
    Second, they lost a star for the price. These cables should have been bundled with the wii, but they weren't. The fact that you have to shell out £18 for them is near-robbery.
    It's nice that the RGB scart carries the auto-on signal (when you power up the wii, the TV will switch to the right channel by itself), so how they could have included Auto-on but missed WSS is beyond me. If there's a 3rd party RGB cable that has the WSS signal, get that instead. It'll probably be cheaper, too.

  3.  Not bad, not great

    Just because it's made by Nintendo doesn't mean it's fantastic. This game is the case in point.

    There is nothing terrible about this game, but there is nothing great about it either. The controls are so simple my 3 year old can play it, and he doesn't come last on Jet Race like he does with Mario Kart.

    Graphics are ok, weapons are ok, courses are uninspired, but the whole thing is lacking in that 'wow' factor. It's too shallow to have any replay value, so you won't be playing it much after you've completed it. Kids will love it though.

    If you were expecting a high quality game like Diddy Kong Racing or Mario Kart, you will be disappointed. If you wanted a fairly fun, simple racer to whip out at parties then by all means give it a try.
