Not as good as Sonic or Mario!

  • Summary: I bought this for my younger brother to give him a few more games to play on the Wii, therefore I can’t really comment on all the individual games that makeup this title, but I would say is that my brother never really took to this and it has pretty much sat on the shelf unused. It is quite basic in terms of its game play so not on the same level as a Mario Kart, or Sonic & Mario at the Olympic Games.

Major disappointment, even at a discount

  • Summary: I picked up this game because my wife wanted a Bocce game for the Wii. I picked this one, because it had a couple of other games that I thought I'd like. However, I was disappointed. The Bocce game is probably the highlight of the game, play-wise. You can move your person side-to-side, and change angle (as you can in Wii Sports Resort's bowling), and vary your throw based on how hard you swing the Wiimote.

It's "ok"

  • Summary: Could have been so much more! The response timing is way off. I found it difficult to get the characters to do what I wanted them to do. On top of that, sometimes I was even confused at to what I was suppose to do. I traded it in.

So optimistic....sigh.

  • Summary: I got this game as a present for my husband because he is really into disc golf. This game is really clunky. You get to personalize your character which is fun and all but I found that the character I spent the time "personalizing" kept changing just within one tournament never mind between the different activities. Overall frustrating game play from the so simple instructions. It would be nice to know a little more about how you get a full throw with the meter level.

Okay if you just want to sit on the couch

  • Summary: We rented this game before buying, and I'm really glad that we did. Our family really loves playing live volleyball and other beach games. We were pretty disappointed. First we went to create our character. The graphics for creating the character made it difficult to understand what menu items went to what. After taking forever to create our character (which, no matter what you did to it looked like a fat, football player), we headed to the volleyball game.

A bit of a let-down...

  • Summary: My 10-year old step-daughter advised us to get this after playing the Wii Sports game(s). Naturally, we assumed it would be along the same lines. We haven't played all the games, so can't really comment on everything. Some games are fun; others we just gave up on (e.g., football, or rather `soccer' as they refer to it).

Doesn't Do It For Me!! But each persons different!!

  • Summary: Maybe I was expecting too much from it as I have just purchased and am TOTALLY addicted to Wii Fit but this just doesn't do it for me it seems effortless to play and the games seem to be never ending and dull it's like watching little lego men and the best thing about this is the dancing your character does when they score or win.

Not as good as it could have been.

  • Summary: Being a casual gamer who enjoys playing Wii Sports, I thought this would offer more-of-same but add a bit more variety. I was wrong. Partly my fault as I assumed this was a follow up to Wii Sports when it's actually nothing to do with it, but the main disappointment with this game is that it seems badly put together. My wife and I were playing Beach Cricket and whenever it was time to swap over, by the time we'd got up and got into position - the bowler and bowled!

Not Great

  • Conclusion: The game is not very good and the controls hardly match the movements onscreen. for example, in cricket, you can just swing the wii-mote wildly and you will hit the ball. the only plus side to this game is the cheap price and the fact that it can be quite a good party game.
