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.

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.

  • 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.

Plan A Vacation Away From This Trip

GIN
19 December 2011
  • 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.

Auracore MediaWorks

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...
  • Pros: + Hidden collectibles, + More depth than other minigame collections
  • Cons: Traveling around the island is tedious, Some very odd minigames, Minigames unlocked via single player “campaign”
