Summary: I have the Wii balance board to go with this and it's makes all the differnce, so much fun. The only downside is the lack of places to ski, as so far their seems to be only one mountain with several slopes, rather than different countries and resorts which would have been nice. Other than that though it's very cool as you can ski to your hearts content or try out some racing, so all in all good fun but could be better.
Summary: My kids really enjoy playing on this game, either 'skiing freestyle' or completing the various challenges. Being able to have your 'photo' taken is also fun. Can be played either on the balance board or off it.
Summary: Fantastic game. Even the most cynical, anti game console people will enjoy this experience. Suitable for all ages it leaves you full of expectation for future Wii games. If they even come close to this then Wii owners are in for a great experience. I recommend this to anyone especially those who find it difficult to exercise and are overweight - this gets you up and active.
Summary: I really wanted this games as i loved the skiing on the Wii Fit, although it is a good game to play it is a bit broing to plays after an hour or so. Not one of the best games I have bought but one that I do play occasionally.
Summary: We were lucky enough to be given Wii Fit for Christmas, and even luckier to be given this game, Family Ski. The key is in "Family". The Wii have done well at providing games for young and old, but this is the first game that my 4yr old daughter can actually play by herself. Setup is, by Wii standards, quite easy. You have to register, of course. You can use your own Mii creations, or use an in built one, then customise with different clothes, skis, sticks etc.
Summary: Family Ski is such a fun game. do not hesitate to buy this game if you love cruising blues and greens on your ski holiday. It's a really good family game. My daughter and I have spent hours just wizzing around the mountain and thats where the game is at it's best. The challenges are ok but for just feel of motion family ski in freeski mode is A+. The biggest downfall is the size of the resort and it's a big downfall.
