Summary: We rented this game first to see whether our kids (ages 7 and 9) would like it, and it was such a hit that we ordered a used copy immediately here on Amazon. The games are fun, and the controlling actions not too difficult for kids to figure out. We have spent countless hours enjoying Playground as a family. The multi-player games are the biggest hit, we don't do much of the single player questing through the playground, right now.
Summary: This is by far one of the best family games on the Wii. I know this is geared towards children but I can tell you from a 30 year old who has broke this out NUMEROUS times for family functions, game nights with our friends, with my nephews and niece, etc, it's been a great game for everyone of all ages. The oldest has been 60 and the youngest has been 6, if that gives you a spectrum how fun it is.
Summary: The simplicity of this game makes it great for people of all ages, though it appeals to a certain kind of gamer. Personally, I enjoy collecting things and am a completionist. So anyone who enjoys that kind of game will like this one. It's also great for kids because they believe they can actually beat it even if it takes them a few tries.
Summary: We've had this game for about a year and, at first, all the reading annoyed me. My daughter constantly wanted help with what the game was telling her. HOWEVER, once you read everything once, you don't have to read it again. She cared about what they were saying because she's old enough to really want to play it right. I was worried about letting my younger nephews play (aged 2-7) because of all the reading but they don't care at all what it says.
Summary: It was recommended to us and got a deal for it. The whole family loves it. Kids range from 2, 6, & 9. Some games a bit challenging for my 2 your old but he really likes the race carts. Dodgeball is my favorite. My oldest enjoys the nerf darts - especially when she mastered them and beat me!
Summary: Most of the mini games are very easy to learn and cater to a younger crowd. Our 4 year old can do all of them. He does not usually win, but he has no trouble navigating the games. We have never played any of the single player stuff. Maybe we never will, because we got the Wii for "family" fun. Ok, that said. . . Dodgeball rocks! We have burned hours playing this game.
Summary: I have a 9yo girl, 7yo boy, and 6yo girl and all 3 love this game. It's fun and they can be a little competitive while playing it. They also can use teamwork and be on the same team on a few of the games. They would play it all day if I let them. I also like joining in and playing the game with them from time to time. It does make them move around and swing their arms so if they're going to play a video game I'd rather it be one like this!
Summary: What I like about this game is that you earn new character skills and not simply outfits. The series of Playground games are a lot of fun. I bought it for the dodgeball but all of them are great. Tetherball, though sounds pretty simple, seems to be one of the hardest games, at least for me. Graphics are great and the game gets progressively harder. Lot of fun and endless enjoyment. Highly recommend it for the whole family.
Summary: Playground by EA is one of the best games I've played in years. The game is fun in single player mode, but the true excitement comes from playing multiable player mode. The game offers 7 sub-games (dodgeball,slot car racing, paper airplane racing, tetherball, wall ball, kicks and dart shootout). Four of the games allow up to four players to play at the same time, while the remaining games can olny be played with two players.
