Gamecyte writes: "As the kid-tested, mother-approved - hell, grandmother-approved - game console whose demand continues to outstrip supply over a year after release, the Nintendo Wii has certainly caused a stir - but not quite the all-out Revolution its creators originally hyped. Wii online sucks. There are few compelling hardcore games. For every critically acclaimed title that actually uses the Wii's motion-sensing controls to some effect, there's a steaming bucketful of shovelware with tacked-on functionality - and clip-on plastic attachments.
What can the 10.2 million American Wii owners do about it? Very little. They've bought into the Nintendo club, and now they're stuck with whatever the Wii has to offer. But what they can do is pay better attention next time, and - having had a look at some of Nintendo's track record here - decide whether they want to trust the words of Nintendo execs in future."
