Summary: Not to be confused with the Wii Sports games, Water Sports is independent of the popular series but does offers a similar layout to Wii Sports Resort. This time the events included all take place out on the ocean but with dry land always in sight. The question is does Water Sports offer the same variety and appeal of the Wii Sports titles? The first thing that hits you about Water Sports is how few events there are.
Summary: For some reason the kids never really got into this game and I've only seen them playing it a few times. I'll probably resell it on the used market. Fortunately, there is a good market for all Wii games. I wish you could try them out before you buy them as it is hard to tell what will be a hit until you use them.
Summary: I agree most with C. Pittman's 1/3/10 review. menu: there are only 4 games, easy/normal difficulty (I guess hard is locked) & choice of 3 male/female teams. you can select different courses on a poster of a world map with tacks showing different cities/countries. sound/music: the music is elevator style, there are no other sounds but water & any motors & I think a grunt if you bump/slam into things. no cheering, no boos, no sounds from AI opponents, nada.
Summary: Not bad to make use of the balance board and add more variety. I agree with the other reviewer who commented that all of the activities all pretty much play the same, though. There is some variety in the scenery (which is pretty to look at), but the actually game play and controls all kind of have the same FEEL from activity to activity. Because of this, I tend to get a bit bored with this one after a while and will switch to a different game.
Summary: I would not recommend this game, especially for younger players. Here are a few reasons: 1.) The 4 "game choices" are basically all the same. You just go through the same courses on different equipment... which may be cool if you were actually on the water. However, in a video game, it is basically just a slightly different look to the same game. 2.) The graphics are not that great. We have an old Play Station 1 with 1999 circa games with graphics this good (bad?). 3.
Summary: Just bought this game looking for more games that use the balance board. I have to say the graphics are weak, as is the reponse of the board, Better to play w/ just the remote. The game is - just ok- I got tired of it after 15 min as all but the ski doo are pretty much the same.
Summary: This game is fun for a little while, like 15min then it gets old. The play is the same for all four games whether your kite surfing, water skiing, or whatever. The jet ski game is a alittle different because of the board orientation. I got the game as a gift and will definitely trade it in a short while. It's not super challenging, nor does it give you much of a workout.
