Summary: I haven't played this much. I like the water skis but the jet ski one is not quite right. It has you running into what looks like barrels which I had been trying to ski around. They are actually jumps I guess. The one that looks like it would be a jump isn't. Or I'm doing it totally wrong. I will check it out some more as I get back in shape (been sitting around for too long). So far though it's not too bad. I'll keep playing.
Summary: Bought this game for use on Hawaiian day because of the surfing and hula dancing. I didn't have the balance board. The games were fun and will play by themselves if you start them. The Hawaiian day was at a retirement community, so this worked out well for us.
Summary: My 5 year old grandson can lick me on most of his video games. He just rolls his eyes at my inept ability to stay alive. Beach party turned the tide for me and I was able to compete at an acceptable level with him. He loved it and I loved it! It is truly a "whole" family activity.
Summary: The thing that really appealed to me about this game is that it is compatible with the Wii Balance Board, but you do not have to have one to play this game. I will say though it will not be nearly as much fun without the Wii Balance Board, but it is still fun. The game is really easy to set up, just pick your character and clothes then start exploring. There are 8 games to choose from but within each game is different levels, I am still on Easy!
