Dolphin is an emulator that can run games from both the Nintendo Gamecube and Wii systems. It can run quite a few games from both
systems perfectly and many others with just a few flaws. Of course, being a work in progress means that many games are quite broken
and others need configs to be tweaked to get working properly. However, it is well worth your time to try this emulator out as upgrading
previously standard definition titles to a full 1080p can lead to fantastic results.
