The popularity of the Wii seems to be growing every day. There are many different types of games that can now be played using the Wii console, but some of these games may work better with a certain type of controller. Traditionally, the Wii remote, or WiiMote, is the basic controller that most Wii games are played with. Depending on the game you are playing, however, you may also want to use the Wii Nunchuk controller, GameCube controller, or the Wii Classic Controller.
While all Wii games can be played individually, the Wii game system is set up as more of a family friendly, multi-player type of system. The motion-sensing technology of the game is something that people of all ages have come to enjoy, but the basic Wii remote controller sometimes works better on some games than others because of this technology. The choices and uses of Wii controllers can sometimes become confusing, especially for those who are not as adept at playing video games as others. Since everyone wants to brag about beating their friends at something and everyone wants to play the game to the best of their ability, choosing the right Wii controller for the game that is being played can be crucial to your performance. By taking a look at the various Wii remote controllers that are available you may be able to get a better understanding of what types of games they are good for and how they can help you and your comrades achieve greater results.
The WiiMote is the basic Wii remote controller and works well with many standard racing games as well as first person shooter games. This basic controller can pose some problems, however, when playing games that require quick movements that take place in a matter of seconds, such as fighting games. The standard Wii remote controller is basically just a one-hand motion-sensing controller. It works well for standard party and puzzle games, as well as racing games and some sports games. Depending on the game being played, the Wii controller will have to be held in different positions.
For sports games the Wii remote controller will be held in a way that the player will mimic the motions of real life action. For example, in baseball the WiiMote will be held like a bat and swung to hit the ball, and players will mimic the motion of throwing the ball when pitching. For racing games, the Wii controller is held in a sideways position with hands on both sides of the remote to mimic a steering wheel.
The Wii Nunchuk controller also features motion sensing and acts as a control stick attachment. One of the most popular types of games to use the Wii Nunchuk controller is boxing. In this instance the player will hold the WiiMote in their right hand and the Wii Nunchuk in their left hand to simulate punches being thrown by either hand. This is also used frequently in first person shooter games where the Wii controller is in the right hand and is used to spot your target, aim, and fire your weapon while the Wii Nunchuk controller is held in the left hand and slightly lifted to reload the weapon, as well as providing steering ability when needed.
As an alternative to the Wii remote controller and Wii Nunchuk controller, some games provide the player with the ability to use a GameCube controller. These are usually more traditional games, such as Mario Kart, that do not work well with the standard Wii controller. While the standard Wii controllers are wireless, the GameCube controller is not and must be plugged into the console in order to be useful. Having a GameCube controller for games like Mario Kart and Super Smash Brothers Brawl can enhance the experience of playing the game and make it much easier to play the game well.
The Wii Classic controller is also not wireless and does not have the motion sensing feature, but comes with dual control sticks that are similar to the controllers used with Playstation. It also features the same button configurations that can be found on the GameCube controller. This can make playing some of the classic games much easier, making the Wii Classic controller something that many baby boomers will appreciate. For those who enjoy using the Wii Classic controller, there is good news on the horizon, as it is rumored that there will soon be a wireless version released very soon.
While the WiiMote and Wii Nunchuk controller have their benefits, you may find that using a GameCube controller or Wii classic controller can help in playing certain games. For optimum performance and a more enhanced gaming experience, choosing the right Wii controller is essential.
