Not what I expected

Summary: I ordered this game because I couldn't find the original Wii Lawn Games, and I am very disappointed in it. First, it makes you play with 4 players, no matter which game you choose, so unless you have enough friends to play, you're playing against the computer, which makes for very slow game play. Second, the games are not very responsive to the Wii remote, so you don't have as much control over your moves as with other games.
Summary: This game is slow and the camera angles are terrible. Also, you can not play a single player game with out setting up three CPU players to play against. If you are looking for a good summer sports game I would not recommend trying this one. Stick with DECA Sports.
Summary: I had high hopes for this game when I ordered it. While the reviews weren't great, I think I am pretty easy to please when it comes to games and was at least expecting to be entertained enough to justify the low price. I was wrong. I only tried playing a few of the games it has, but quite honestly, the wait times between anything happening on a turn killed my desire to play the others and see how they are. Its just not worth it to me.
Summary: i got this game hopeing that the vollyball would be fun. i just got it last night and was all excited to play. i put it in the wii set up a profile and thought i was ready to play. i tried to start the game but it said all players not ready. YOU MUST HAVE 2 OR MORE PLAYERS just to play the game. and if that wasnt disapointing enough EACH PLAYER MUST HAVE THEIR OWN REMOE for some of the games.
Summary: i had high hopes that we could add to our slowly growing collection of family games . i was sadly mistaken. it starts out bad and doesn't end much different.the navigation is poor,its game play is lac-luster and the music is mind-numbing. i suggest checking with reviews before purchasing games or go to game-stores that have a return policy. that's my 2 cents take it or leave it.
Summary: Reading these reviews, it quickly became apparent that most people either really like this game or really dislike it. I fall into the latter category with one exception. I found the graphics on this compilation of interesting summer games to be quite excellent. Even though it's very disappointing that so many games are being written that don't use our delightful little miis, the characters on this one are still better than many of the others out there.
Summary: I have found that the controller does not behave consistently, when you're trying to swing forward, it only wants to go backward,as a result you tend to swing harder and the ball is out of control, soaring off into infinity and beyond or conversely, the ball hardly moves. Very frustrating. Could be a great game package if this issue was addressed properly.
Summary: This is my 2nd game I have bought for my WII. So far both have not been near as good as the sports game that game with the WII. This one is boring, takes a long time between rounds. Putt Putt was kinda fun, but again slow between holes. Badmintin wasnt fun at all. Volleyball was ok. My husband liked horse shoes, neither of us liked lawn darts. Miss not getting to use my mii.
Summary: Bought this game thinking it would be fun playing it since there were sevreal games to choose from. Unfortunately, i was disappointed with and the games does not impress me at all. I should have rented it out first before i bought it.
Summary: I bought summer sports thinking it would be like wii sports. It has a lot of different games and some of them are fun, but for the most part, it's pretty slow. My favorites are mini golf and horseshoes. The basketball games, volleyball, and badminton are just frustrating. I had hoped for a lot more. There are some much better sports games out there for Wii.
