Conclusion: Summer Sports: Paradise Island is a passable Wii sporting title that brings a few backyard favorites to your living room. Unfortunately, the imprecise controls don't let the game achieve its full potential. Consequently, the title is nothing more than a bit more fodder for Sony and Microsoft fanboys to point their fingers and laugh at. That being said, the gameplay experience is similar to that found in Wii Sports.
Conclusion: For an expensive game you would expect a whole lot more. Paradise Island is another dud, the game offers new kinds of mini games, but they are impossible to play. If you want golf then buy a different Wii game, same goes for basketball. Whatever you do please don’t torture your friends and family with this game, they’ll disown you.
Summary: Summer Sports: Paradise Island is exactly what it sounds like, a mini-game collection full of exciting sports you mostly play when the sun is out and everybody is complaining about the heat. There are a few really fun events to play through here, but this compilation isn't nearly as consistent as one would hope! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.
Summary: Parents need to know that this is a simple collection of seven classic family friendly outdoor games. It provides intuitive motion sensitive controls for activities including basketball and mini-golf, and can be useful in teaching younger players the rules of less common backyard games such as croquet, badminton, and lawn darts. Note, though, that the difficulty level is surprisingly high.
Excerpt: Game - Summer Sports: Paradise Island Genre – Sports – Various Platform – Wii It’s no secret that the Wii is desperately in need of third-party titles. The old fallbacks, Mario, Zelda and Metroid, are well represented on the console, and there’s the ubiquitous Wii Sports , of course, but outside of No More Heroes and Zack & Wiki , there’s not much worth playing that’s not a Nintendo product.
