poor game manual makes for unplayable game

Summary: The instructions are so bad that we couldn't even get moving, let alone finish the game, let alone win to be able to unlock more content. It was so awful that we actually returned the game to store and demanded a refund, on the grounds that the game is faulty and unplayable. I'm certainly never buying a game from this company again. How hard is it to sit down and write out the controls for a game?
Summary: Any review with more than 2 stars must be written by the software company staff that created this POS. Read the favorable reviews and you can see how generic they are. The reviews that rate the game with one or 2 stars have actual game details. My comments: 1. The game controls are complicated and not well explained. 2. It is near impossible to have any precision to what one is trying to do.
Summary: I purchased this game because it looked like fun, but it is awful. It doesn't always recognize the Wii remote while playing, but recognizes as soon as you exit. You can't use your Mii and the controls are odd, the help screens not very helpful. Not fun.
Summary: i'm sick of getting jacked by good game ideas that are executed poorly. the controls are okay, but the descriptions are horrible. "alternate the nunchuk and remote in good timing", but what the heck is good timing? i play all kinds of sports and musical instruments so i know what good timing is. however, my character stops for no reason. every game is like this with no pointers on how to improve.
Excerpt: Este juego de la wii , es malisimo... transcurre todo tan rapido que no te da tiempo de aprender a usar los personajes ... que ya perdiste. Tiene un grado de aceleracion , no solo en cuanto al movimiento sino tambien de sonido que termina alterandote.Nosotros lo compramos para jugar en grupo y no le gusto a nadie (siempre terminamos jugando al wiisports donde los graficos son realmente lindos y es para jugar un rato y listo.
