Having setup the Nintendo Wii for our kids ages, 2, 4 and 5, I was excited for Christmas morning to arrive. My 4 year old son loves the Zelda games (Ocarina, Windwaker) so I figured he’d love Twilight Princess. Well, Christmas morning arrived and so did the frustration of learning the new Wii controller. The included Wii Sports was fun, especially the bowling, but not very deep.
If our kids were a few years older I think they’d really enjoy the Wii. But getting used to the new controls provided more frustration than fun over the next three days so I decided to put everything up for sale on Craigslist. Maybe when the kids are a little older it will be worth trying again. But for now, they really like the Nintendo DS Lite as well as the Gamecube and even the N64 for Ocarina and Yoshi.
I did buy Zelda:Twilight Princess for the Gamecube which looks exactly like the Wii version. I like pushing the buttons to swing Link’s sword a whole lot better than swinging the Wii remote too. The game is much easier for my kids to play compared to the Wii version.
