Summary: We just got this game and tried it out for the first time. To start, the only event unlocked is the 100m sprint. The other reviewer mentioned that this game is a real workout for the arms, and she wasn't kidding! To make the pig run, you need to move the nunchuck and wiimote the way you pump your arms while jogging. And of course, the faster you make these movements, the faster the pig runs. This really gets your heart rate up quickly and keeps it there.
Well I wouldn't give it five stars, but it is mildly entertaining

Summary: I decided to pick this game up over christmas on the gamestop buy 2 get one free sale. Found a bunch of $8.99 games and got them for about $6.50 each with tax. I still feel like we waisted our money. Yes, its entertaining. Yes it plays four players. Yes it has quite a few games. Problems...must have four remotes for four to play all games.
Summary: Unfortunately we haven't been able to enjoy this game fully because we only have two remotes/nunchucks, but my kids love playing pig olympics (which is bascially what this is). I have a 10 and 7 year old, and the adults like it just as much (great party game). Takes time to master, which we love, so you don't step up, get it right the first time and get bored. Part of the challenge is figuring out how to do it just right.
Summary: We received this game for Christmas (it requires nunchucks). It reminds me a little of Rayman Raving Rabbids, in that the events use various items (a pitchfork for a javelin and bucket for the hammer throw). It's a fun game and well-executed. My only complaint is that many of the events require you to run or swim by quickly and repeatedly moving your arms up and down--my arms were very tired when we stopped yesterday and they're stiff today from playing it!
