Summary: I bought this game thinking it would have to have at least some redeeming qualities, but I was wrong. I am a big fan of chess and thought that at the very least I would have that. I found it absolutely ridiculous how difficult the AI was for chess. On the easiest level it took me ten games before I finally beat the computer.
Summary: The games are what I expected, but I am disappointed in the overall quality. It appears to be a poorly translated game. So some of the terms used don't necessarily mean what you expect them to. It's a lot of guessing... And some games just aren't right unless you have a big screen, which I don't. There is a boggle-like game, where you select words from a table of letters on the screen. on my 32 inch TV, the letters are so small, my eyes go buggy after awhile.
Summary: I read many bad reviews on gamefly & IGN as well. The music has three songs a jazzy/techno beat (the beat was a decent attempt at being hip) & another jazz like elevator music song & I forget the third. they just bleed together. The graphics have been around since the original NES - Playstation 1 times probably. There are about 6 different 3D backgrounds, but they still don't add to it.
Summary: I bought this game because I thought it would be fun to have board games on the Wii -- something I've wished that gaming companies would do for a long time. (I love PC games like Mah-Jong, etc. and really wanted that in the Wii format.) I found this to be slow and, even on a 41-inch HDTV display, it's hard to see. Not the first game I would recommend.
