Summary: I bought a used copy of this game at V-Stock for about $10 with the idea that this might be something fun to add to my small collection of Wii games, and it does not disappoint. While the 3D graphics can be a bit much time and again, the events provide enough of a challenge to keep casual gamers like myself from getting too bored too quickly. My favorite events to play so far would have to be swimming and running due to the upper body workout they provide.
Summary: First, let me say that I love athletic-type games. I thought the Wii would bring the sports even more to life. Unfortunately, I found it difficult to get the hang of it. I tried to focus on one sport, i.e. diving and read the directions, followed the on screen directions, and then attempted it. After 30 minutes, I was frustrated and ready to give up. Thinking it was maybe just that one event, I tried one of the running events. I got the same result.
Summary: This is a good game you will work your arms in some of the events. Most of the events are really fun and a good workout. One player and two player modes are really good. Learning how to do some events can be tough.Creating a person that looks like you is tough. Some of the motions don't match the events but most of this game is really good.
Summary: Unless your really into video games, you'll find this pretty hard to play. The graphics are great but it throws you into 3-D mode in the middle of your play. Definately for a more experienced player than me. Wii sports and Wii games is a lot more user friendly and very fun.
Summary: Personally, I love any game that involves competition and medal/award winning. There are so many events in this game and each competition is pretty unique. There is also the ability to create a custom competition and compete in only the events you choose. This game (at least for me) is not one that you master on the first time you play it. It takes practice. You are able to play alone against NPCs or with up to 4 people. It is a great workout for the arms and shoulders.
Summary: This game uses nunchucks and you are constantly working out those arms! I'm still trying to get used to the swimming and diving part as well cycling but let me tell you, you will be tired but in a fun way! Great game if you are challenging someone to a race. Great buy!
