Excerpt: i purchased sports island after enjoying wii sports so much but was a little disapointed the graphics are not great and the games are quite boring on the other hand there is alot of variety. The circuit races follow very plain routes with very bare environmental decorationin the Ice Skating you use the nunchuck to skate and you twist the remote to perform spins and jumps, admittedly this control system works very well but any potential for freedom of expression is...
Excerpt: I was given this game as a gift. It was intended as a 'party' game but I found the format unsuitable for a party. With 2-4 players most sections of the game are entertaining and fun but with a single player or more than 4 there were too many 'option' screens between game play and it is not easy to keep track of scores. For the single player the game would benefit from mini games but there are none.
Conclusion: I am on the edge about this game as I was a little disappointed. The graphics are very good. The archery game is the best one. I could not understand some of the instructions. The ice skating game was very hard to play as i really wanted to play it but my person just hardly moved even though i was following instructions. Teams are good. I like the different characters. I would maybe consider buying another game instead of this but is an overall good game.
Summary: Have played this game in Canada (Deca sports). Karting is absolutely rubbish - worst wii game ever motocross a close second to karting, terrible basketball chaotic and inaccurate to control football and volleyball havent played ice skating is ok but quite frustrating archery is okay and can be competitive with 2 or more curling is really good. accurate gameplay, skill and judgement required etc. this one event is the reason why i cant give 1 star overall.
Excerpt: Ok it's not Wii Sports which has raised the bar for lots of games but Sports Island seems good enough. I recently bought this and spent a good part of the day playing it and having lots of fun. There are numerous games let's see there is, motorcycling, snowboarding and go carts to name three. Yes, they appear to be abit basic but so what, they are fast and great fun to race each other in these games.
Pros: Colourful, not too demanding, lots of quick simple games, price
Summary: le jeu sport island est malheureusement un echec pour la console wii, certes il y avait de l'idée en mettant en place ces differents sports, cependant la jouabilité laisse a desirer, le fait que l'on est pas beaucoup de minis jeux entraine un ennui tres rapide. orientez vous vers un autre type de jeu.
Pros: les sports proposés, defier ses amis
Cons: le prix, la jouabilité, graphismes pourraient être beaucoup mieux
Summary: Also eins vorweg. Das Spiel ist mit Sicherheit kein Toptitel für die Wii ... aber es hat durchaus Potential um für viele Stunden an den Bildschirm zu fesseln. Vorausgesetzt, man kann sich für eine der angebotenen Sportarten begeistern und kommt mit der Steuerung klar, die aber überall (Handbuch, Spiel) erklärt wird.
