Well obviously the motion sensing.
Well, this is my first post on these boards. The board seems to be a friendly and productive one, and I'm sure once issues with defective Wii's have been settled, the board will become even better.
And, as I haven't quite yet gotten a Wii of my own, I'd like to stray from the topic of glitches and defects, and ask...
What has surprised you most about the Wii? What feature, game, etc, has just completely swept you off your feet, if anything? I'm excited about getting my hands on a Wii, and I'd like to hear what your best experiences so far have been with it.
This board looks like a great one, and I can't wait to join the community.
Well obviously the motion sensing.
wii sports....man that game is a good time. i thought it would be good but damn, it's a very very enjoyable game that is simply a blast to play with friends or family, specially non gamer friends or family.
I was suprised by all of the subtle things like the rumble going off whenever your cursor is over things on the menu. It adds a nice touch. Not essential, but nice.
Let's just say, you definatly won't be dissapointed. Everything about it rocks!
Waited 13 hours, but I got my Wii!

I know Zelda will be an incredible game, but has anyone played Rayman: Raving Rabbids, or Super Monkey Ball? I'll probably be choosing between them for my second game (possibly madden also), and I'm having trouble finding negative feedback about either >.<
Zelda is off the chart awesome. As good as you've heard and as good as you've hoped...it's better.
However, the biggest surprise has been the Mii system and the whole console/menu system. Extremely well done...it has a personality all it's own. You'll be able to spend hours just in the Mii maker...that and no more of my son telling fibs about how long he spent playing video games...the damned system logs every minute in every game AND the menus and keeps it at your fingertips. I'm giddy about how much I love this thing.
Biggest diappointment so far: Red Steel is a bit of a letdown.
I was looking forward to Red Steel, but with my limited funds and its mixed reviews (both official and from players on this board), I feel it's a better idea to steer clear of it for now and pick up a game I know I'll like.
you will LOVE!!! the wii sports my fave one is boxing! next is tenis then baseball and I dont like sports!!! but is fun with this system! lol well I do like boxing but I hate other sports.:P
I actually like Red Steel when it comes to a solid FPS game for the Wii. It boasts some of the most realistic graphics so far bested only by Zelda. Being a PC gamer for years the use of the wiimote to aim and the joystick to strife/walk was an easy transformation. It isn't quite the WASD/Mouse combo that I use on the pc so I do admit it took some getting used to. FPS noobs need not apply to Red Steel as the learning curve is a little steep and the AI are relentless when it comes to using dirty tricks and quick surprises to kill you. Good game when you adapt to it, but still if you're new to FPS games on the PC then getting used to Red Steel will take some time.
