Great basic console,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nintendo Wii Mini Red (Console)
I bought the Wii Mini for my girlfriend for Christmas and we have had loads of fun with it since. The console is very lightweight and small meaning it will easily fit into your existing entertainment setup. The only options for connecting to the TV are Scart or RCA, no component as with the original Wii, but it looks fine on my 32" 1080i TV even when I am reasonably close to the screen. As other reviewers have noted, the Wii Mini does not include internet connectivity, so you can't use Netflix/iPlayer with this.
The reason to buy the Wii Mini is because it allows you to play the fantastic Wii game library at a low price. We have mainly been playing Mario Party 8, which is loads of fun with a group of friends, and Zelda: Twilight Princess, which is an epic follow-up to Ocarina of Time on the N64. The Wii was a very underrated console, and is thought of as being only about casual sports games, but it also had a bunch of great titles for more dedicated gamers, such as the two Zelda games Resident Evil 4 and Super Mario Galaxy. You can pick up remotes and other accessories for the Wii cheaply at the moment since it has now been superseded by the Wii U, so this is a chance to get a fantastic console very cheaply.
