    Graphics will be better then PS2 but no where near Xbox360 or ps3.

    With my experiences I kinda got bored with the Wii after 30mins of play. The controls are just not practical. Its fun at first but then you realize it would be more comfortable to play with just a normal standard controller. Games like Mortal Kombat or Guilty Gear is just a pain in the ass with the remote/chuck

    the only thing i play now is Guitar hero III and thats it.

    My brother (11) and I (15) both got a Wii for Christmas last year and we both enjoyed it very much. The game that comes with it, wii sports has heaps of stuff to do with challenges and very good multiplayer, and as well as the free game included there is heaps of other free stuff that comes with it if you have the internet such as forcast and news channel, photo channel, everybody votes channel, check mii out channel and MP3 preview channel. Then on top of the original package, there are good games like Zelda: Twilight Princess which got 9.6 on IGN and is reasonably cheap (special at Big W for $44) and games like Mario Galexy (got 9.6 as well), super paper mario, metroid prime 3 (9.5) etc...
