Yes they are full games. Some of them are quite good.

Best thing to do is have a look at reviews on [url]www.gamespot.com[/url] or [url]www.ign.com[/url] or even [url]www.metacritic.com[/url] and see if any appeal to you.

Yeah they're full games and they're are some very good ones to download. Pricy though when you can just download an emulator and play it on the computer for free!

Get Tv Show King - one of the best games I have for the wii when mates are round - seriously!!

Oh and that's a wiiware game

thanks guys, will have a look through the reviews, also can you somehow surf the net on it? Im sure i read somewhere you can

Yes, you need to download the internet channel from the Wii Shop. (Free)

wiiware games are the ones to look at really, they're developed for the wii so you won't need any other controllers. A lot of the older ones need a classic controller.

I remember it was free for a while but they changed it.

so can you use it just like a comp, sorry to sound dim :oops:

new opera browser is 500 points, I believe - but I would think you would need a proper keyboard, otherwise it will take ages to type urls using your wiimote

I just added star points ( 3000+ last week) on club nintendo to get free wii points, but am still waiting for account to link up with online site (have already linked online via console)

club nintendo:
nintendo.co.uk/NOE…jsp

P.s can you add a keyboard to it then

tempted to leave the internet browser alone so 12y old can't go surfing !

how much do the wii points "cost" when you have star points on your club nintendo acccount please?

4 star points to one wii point, so 1000 wii points costs you 4000 star points

Yeah, its not the best browsing experiance in the world, but it will do if u want to look somthing up
just point and click.. a keyboard will pop up if u click on somthing that requies text, like a login screen or somthing.

oh its great to watch youtube videos on, esp if u have a big tv

I like some of the WiiWare stuff like Toki Tori, World of Goo, Megaman 9 etc

Yeah I think the browser is good for quick things like looking up cinema times, sports, weather etc. but not if you're going to use it for a prolonged period as it gets a little uncomfortable with the onscreen keyboard.

Would recommend it though cos I think Opera have done a good job on this and it works really well
