Because you aren’t moving the remote nearly as much, it won’t drift outside of the sensor bar’s range, so you avoid the weird view-freeze bug and subsequent auto-calibration fix mentioned in my first set of impressions. It’s also just easier and more comfortable to play the game with smaller movements, and you can turn faster to keep up with quick flying enemies."

I asked a Nintendo rep about this one, and tried it. "Expert mode" just jacks the sensitivity up. It makes your moves jittery and the cursor looks like you are on meth. The "auto calibration" sucked hard. So, Expert Mode is the only way to avoid that from happening so much.

I think the game would benefit from variable sensitivity rather than two modes, and having a Left Trigger GRAW style aiming system.

If I wanted that, I'd play my 360. But there will be times when I don't, and that's why I'm probably going to buy a Wii as well.

I'm not accusing your impressions of being incorrect or anything like that though. The people here claiming you have some vendetta are nuts.

Not really. I'm just calling it as I see it. (or played it, in this case.)

I'm not a big fan of FPS's on other consoles (including the 360) with the dual stick control method. I much prefer Mouse+Keyboard. But XBox Live service is enough to keep me playing on the 360. PC games cannot compete with how slick and easy XBox Live is. (believe me, I've tried to get PC games to work as well, XFire, Teamspeak, GameSpy, etc.)

I would love to have a better method of FPS control. In it's current execution, the Wii does not offer better control. Only different, at best.

And even with a perfected controller, that still will not address the crappier looking graphics. Argue gameplay all you want, but it's not about her looks, it's about the personality, right?

Actually, since third party devs are so used to programming GCN content, this is great for them. 27 games on the e3 floor and lots more to come. I'm sure you've read about the skyrocketing dev costs of this next gen, and the Wii combats that. Just like indie developers being able to put out GBA games, its great for smaller companies that are willing to take risks with new genres and game types. And for the established companies like EA, they have a chance to put some less cash into super-extensive graphic overhauls and play around with the controls with the money instead and still have costs significantly below the other 2 systems. I can find some articles from third party devs if you would like.

Nintendo has never been the bose of console world , but it's been the most pure fun oriented brand up to now .

Actually, I'll have to agree that Nintendo would be more like Grado. And the Wii is the HF-1.

Lots of people love it and buy it, but for many others, it would be a downgrade, despite the hype.

Well, the first new console that I might buy will be Nintendo Wii. I'm just getting bored w/ new games. In the last 6 month the games that I played the most are Super punch out, Contra, Super Mario kart and Winning eleven 3 (PS1)
Currently I have SNES, N64, PS1, Dreamcast, PS2, Modded Xbox, Gamecube. The games selection from Xbox 360 doesn't really interest me but it mostly because I just don't like where current games genre are going. I don't have time to solve mysteries (RPG's etc) nor practice to be an expert (FPS,etc). I just want to pick up games and have fun, that's why I like to play Super punch out. So far, I see Nintendo Wiiii will provide me with that kind of games. Btw, the last new games that impress me are GTA 3 and Donkey Conga.

An upgrade is a new video card, or adding some memory, the 360 is new from the ground up. They didn't just take the Xbox and add a few things.

Shens! That guy's too fat to be Ed.

As for the FPS controls, I wonder if you couldn't use the D-pad on the remote for the strafing and use the nunchuk for look. The main thing that I like about is using the the remote for the targeting cursor, I don't see why one cannot try relegating the large look and movements to the controls.

However, in the end, that is what they did. It is still essentially the same console as the Xbox, but with much greater horsepower and a better interface. I think boodi's point was that the Xbox 360 doesn't bring anything different to the table than the original Xbox other than an upgrade in graphics/etc.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it?

No seriously, that's pretty much how all next-gen consoles (til now) have been like . . . just an upgrade in power, graphics, etc. I've never tried the Wii, and I have no idea how it will be . . . but I'm definitely willing to give it a chance. Though I'm not sure if joe 9-5 will want to come home from a hard day's work and play it considering the extra "effort" needed. Yeah, it's probably minute, but when you're tired and half asleep, pointing stuff properly can be difficult haha.
