My Slate review of the Nintendo Wii argues that the motion-sensitive Wii Remote controller provides a greater level of gaming realism than the superior graphics of the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. (The headline and subtitle given to the piece overstate its case, because realism in gaming is overrated, but that's a topic for another day.)
Shorter Slate: "Like nothing else I've ever played, the Wii comes closest to achieving the grail of gaming: a home virtual-reality machine. ... The Wii Remote creates a level of realism that can't be attained through pretty pictures or through giving gamers ever-larger worlds to explore. (Like book reviewers, gamers sometimes confuse sprawl with excellence.)"
