Bye Bye X360, Hello Wii!

So I eventually got around to getting rid of my disapointing X360. Nobody wanted to buy it, so I traded it in for a new Wii - and after a day playing the Wii I wish I had done it a long time ago.

The games I got were 2 family type games where the kids could playing bowling and boxing etc, and two for me :D I just went for two of the highest rated games, RE4 and the latest Zelda game.

I have never played Zelda in my life, so I was keen to see what all the fuss was about, because I understand the game is HUGE. Off the bat it reminded my of Final Fantasy, back in the day. It looks pretty easy going so far, so it might provide a welcome respite from the horrors of Bioshock on the PC.

RE4 looks very promising. I loved the very first one, I think that was a PS1 release? Surprisingly, the whole aim and shoot process is a bit easier than with a joypad, I seem to find, so that's a bonus. I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised with the quality of graphics too, I didn't expect much, so to find them more than adeqaute was another bonus. They do look a little "washed out" I suppose, but it's kind of atmospheric, so it's all good.

I can see many afternoons of hilarity playing bowling with the kids though, neat stuff.

The controller is VERY accurate. I have to admit when I initially saw the idea behind the controller when the Wii was released, I was in the "sounds great but I bet it won't work worth a dime" crowd, well, it does work, very very well.

I'd love to find a game like the arcade shooters, where you reload by shaking the gun off screen, and take on a house of zombies etc, I don't think I saw anything like that in the top rated Wii games though.

Impressive piece of kit though.

So what's your opinion on the Wii these days Rocky? It's been a while since your post and I think there are some shooters out there for it and the rifle controller.
