A Gamecube and Wii emulator for Windows

A review of Dolphin Emulator by Sven Sørensen

Dolphin is an emulator mainly designed to allow users to play ROMs for Gamecube, and has added support recently to also function as a Nintendo Wii Emulator. The programs functions are rather preliminary and has limited support for a wide variety of different games, though some that do work include Zelda, Pikmin and Mario Sunshine (though without sound). Other games have been tested and work with both audio and video.

Several games designed for the Wii system work alright, but as with any emulator during the lifecycle of any current generation console, support for games is unstable and not totally reliable.

In the latest version, many things have been patched and bugs have been fixed. Development of this program is rapid and as of today, many games are playable which weren't many months ago.

One thing to note is that Dolphin is actually able to play games in 1080p, something that the actual consoles that it emulates are completely incapable of.
