Go Vacation

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: A tropical resort paradise overrun by dead-eyed, single-minded creatures that vaguely resemble humans, there shambling movements parodying the utter lifelessness all around them. I am not talking about Techland's Dead Island . This is Go Vacation ... something far scarier. For if there's one thing more numerous, tougher to kill, and infinitely more deadly than zombies, it's minigames.

Go Vacation

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Go Vacation earned the Family Friendly Gaming Gold Medal at E3 2011 for the Wii system. This game impressed me greatly at that show. Everything I saw and played in Go Vacation let me know this game was going to be a winner. What I did not realize at E3 2011 is how deep Go Vacation really is. This home console game is like We Ski and Snowboard multiplied by four. There are four resorts in Go Vacation. All of them are as fleshed out as the snow resort.

  • Conclusion: Why can't I swordfight without Motion Plus?
  • Pros: Playing the quick draw mini-game reawakened my love for another Namco arcade title, Quick N Crash .
  • Cons: The balance board makes games harder to control without making them more fun.

Cute, varied, and enjoyable collection of active mini-games.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Go Vacation is an interactive game that involves competing with up to four players in a variety of active mini-games. Many of the games involve competing against either non-playable characters or others on the same machine. It does not require peripheral devices (like the Balance Board) to play, but if you have them, they can be utilized.

Plan A Vacation Away From This Trip

  • Excerpt: You would think that game to simulate the ultimate family vacation would be a great idea, especially for a family-friendly console like the Wii. But poor execution really mars the final product for Go Vacation and makes is less fun than it should have been. Which in a way, makes it kind of like a real family getaway. The only thing I truly did find interesting about this game is the 50 different types of activities and sports you could partake in.

  • Summary: All the fun of a vacation without the hassle of getting there
  • Pros: Wide variety of mini-games; extensive environments that you can explore; exhaustive replay capabilities; makes excellent use of peripherals.
  • Cons: Mini-games are not challenging enough; computer characters are robotic and exist as obstacles for you to walk around; too-simple controls diminish the game's potential.

Go Vacation Review

  • Excerpt: After 30 minutes with Namco Bandai’s Go Vacation , I turned the game off. I really wasn’t expecting much, but the controls were so bad, I literally had trouble completing stages. So I gave the game a rest and decided to come back to it later. Upon return, the game was just as maddening as before, but 30 minutes is hardly enough time to accurately assess most any game’s quality. From the beginning, it’s clear that Go Vacation is not an entirely original game.

  • Excerpt: Minigame collections have become synonymous with the Wii. From representations of realistic activities like Wii Sports to the more absurd Rabbid-filled diversions, you can find pretty much...

Go Vacation Review

GameSpot
18 October 2011
  • Excerpt: In an ideal world, the term "family vacation" conjures up visions of fun intergenerational activities in a beautiful setting bookended by car trips filled with tasty snacks and merry sing-alongs. Sadly, such trips are more often portrayed as arduous undertakings in which press-ganged children suffer the whims of exhausted adults bookended by car trips filled with loud arguments and broken air conditioning.
  • Pros: Big resorts encourage exploration, Everything is very accessible, Playing with a group is fun
  • Cons: Minigames are shallow, Some modes of travel are tiresome, Abundant loading screens
