Comparisons

  • Dolphin is the only option for Wii emulation. It is updated on a near daily basis and has very good emulation, barring some noticeable issues with GameCube. System requirements are high. In addition, it is recommended to sync a Wii remote to play games, as it can be difficult mapping the motion controls to a controller, especially if MotionPlus is required.
