Yet in 2005, after two years of development, the company released the Game Wave Family Entertainment System in relative obscurity. Rather than challenge the "big boys" through traditional means such as pixel-pushing graphics, game licensing or online support, ZAPiT went the route of designing a console that would make use of the then-thriving DVD technology to deliver puzzle and family oriented game titles. The time of its release places it within the transition between the waning 6th generation of home consoles and the still current 7th generation (like Microsoft's Xbox 360, which was released around the same time, the Game Wave is generally acknowledged as an early-example 7th gen system rather than a late entry 6th).
Packaged with 4 wireless controllers (each of which double up as a standard remote control for the system, which could also play DVDs without the worry of regional encoding), the system also drove home the point of its multi-player friendliness by including a pack-in family game entitled 4 Degrees: The Arc of Trivia. As if four-player simultaneous support isn't impressive enough, many game titles boast 6-player capabilities and as fate would have it, ZAPiT offers two additional remote controllers packaged in pairs.Read more ›
Now I'm stuck with all these games and hate to throw them out, but it's just not popular enough to find anybody who wants them... :(
Pros: Low Price, Famliy friendly, everyone can play at the same time, it plays DVDs well, 6 people can play together.
Cons: Poorly made, most games are very boring for teenagers, remotes are not that responsive.
My husband and I got this as a gift and were hoping to have fun with the trivia games, that's our thing. We used to enjoy those trivia games at TGIFriday's you play at the bar. This is no where near as much fun as that game. The trivia pursuit game on my cell phone is more fun, we play it when we are stuck waiting somewhere. The kids next door, 11y/o and 14y/o, were locked out after school so we brought them in and let them play it. I was going to give it to them if they liked it, but they weren't really into it. I will probably donate to charity now.

This is great for my teen boys. They all enjoy the games and it is more interactive then other systems. Fun game night.Published on May 13, 2009 by TLC1003
The idea of the game wave is fantastic, the function of it leaves a little to be desired. Perhaps had I owned this before the wii then it would have had more appeal to me. Read morePublished on January 22, 2009 by Melissa D.
