The Wii - Is the shine wearing off? (50)

Maybe I'm alone in my thinking, but either companies are just not trying very hard, or this is the best the wii can do. I'm not talkin' about graphics, or anything, I'm talking about the main Wii selling point - the control.

Was I the only one that imagined the way would totally revolutionize everything? that the wiimote could totally track your movements ni the 3d space well enough to make you truly immersed in games? So far, all i've seen are quick directional movements taking place of button pressing, and - more frsutrating - that these "movements" are being POORLY picked up by the wiimote!

You've all seen this on ANY minigames that Nintendo didn't make. one of the WORST offenders? Super Monkey Ball. less than half of the games are even PLAYABLE. I don't know how many time a swing to the left has been registered as a swing to the right, or not at ALL. and is there something wrong with the forward\backward recognition on the wiimote? and the rotation? And don't even get me STARTED on that speaker. I've had that thing crap out on me more times than I can count (I'm looking at YOU, Rayman, and that stupid PIG game)

This seems to be more of a problem in SOME games than otrhers, so is this part of the problem with games, or the wiimote itself having poor detection?

But, in the big picture, i imagined more like whatever I was wielding in the game would directly follow my movements (like a sword, for example) instead of just registering that a movement occured, and then showing some kind of slash. the sword battles in Red Steel? big dissapointment, but I can forgive Zelda TP, because, really, that would have been a lot of trouble to change from the GC. The gloves in wii sports boxing almost perfectly emulate what I want to happen (only the swings are automatic)

Don't get me wrong, I love Nintendo, and fully support their new direction in gaming, which I think most people will agree is the Future of gaming. I just want some CONSISTENCY in my gaming, okay? if a swing right, then it should know that. I wouldn't play smash bros melee if it only registered my hitting the jump butten 3/4 of the time.

am I alone with this? Give me your thoughts, grivances.
