Summary: Parents need to know that these minigames for the Wii aren't as much fun as those found in Wii Sports , the game that was introduced with the system. And disappointingly, these games can only be played by two people instead of four. The only minigame that may raise an eyebrow for parents is the Shooting Range game. But it's simply point-and-shoot target practice involving balloons, clay pigeons, soda cans, and even UFOs.

Excerpt: Some of the games are rather interesting. My uncle and I play the billiards game for hours on end. The shooting is fun. The ping pong was a nightmare. I was not expecting the cow race. Laser pong is a blast. I would definetly reccomend this game for two reasons. A) It really brings fun to the family doing stuff they will never do (Tell me when your going to race on cows doing hurdles). B) it comes with a Wii Remote.
Excerpt: There are many things wrong with this game.One thing that practicaly makes this game unplayable at times is that the controls for all the games are terribly flawed and confusing.Even if the games controls werent so confusing,the game would still suffer from the fact that the minigames are very poorly thoughtout and get old after 5min.If I were you I would just save my money and buy a good game like super mario galaxy 2 or wiisports resort.
Excerpt: Nintendo launched the Wii way back on November 19th 2006, and on the very next day it became apparent that motion controls were here to stay. Wii Sports showed to both the old generation and the new school what the future of games would play like, with it’s easy to pick up and play nature and great party game atmosphere; in short it was a hit.
Excerpt: Unless you've had your head buried in the sand for the last few months, you may have heard that Nintendo is doing things a little differently these days. They're not part of the 'next generation' of gaming and would rather see Wii as a 'new generation' of gaming. If Wii is about anything it's expanding the market for games, bringing different people in and by extension making more money.
