Nintendo Wii: Kikizo's Definitive Review
Two months on, Kikizo brings together Nintendo's number one fans to deliver this comprehensive, unbiased review of Wii - and we're not shy about saying what we mean.
Is Wii's front-end interface enough to compete with the 360's mighty Guide and PS3's elegant Cross Media Bar?
Carl: Like the console itself, the Wii on-screen interface is cute, clean, simple. The background music is soothing and modern, and everything is easy enough for the non-gamer to navigate. I only wish the interface were more customisable, for gamers who know what they're doing. Things kind of get cluttered as you accumulate Virtual Console games.

Daniella: The background music is a little annoying actually, but I barely notice it anymore and it's not too in your face. I want to see what other channels might appear later as well.
Marwan: At first I thought the Channels were all pointless, such as the Weather Channel, but after using it, I'm having fun just spinning around the globe - my family went away for the Christmas holidays to Saudi Arabia, so every day before or after a gaming session, on say Bomberman '93, I'd click onto the weather channel to see if they're going to get sunburnt or not.
"The Wii is slowly keeping me away from my PC... if Nintendo keeps adding more Channels they'll cater for many people's needs."
