The Wii Sports video game from Nintendo is the launch title for the company’s Wii console. It was released in North America on November 2006 and came bundled with game console. Wii Sports, which is part of the Wii Series of game titles, is the first Wii game to feature the ability to design and import customized avatars called Miis. In addition to allowing the player to use a custom Mii as his character, the game also uses Miis from the Mii Channel as non-player characters.

This video game offers a choice of 5 different sports - baseball, bowling, boxing, golf and tennis. These sports simulations have simplified rulesets and are designed to introduce the player to the mechanics of the motion-sensing features of the Wii.

Using the Wii Remote and Nunchuck, players imitate some movements and actions just as they were playing in real life. Some movements, however, are computer-controlled to make the game simpler and more accessible to all players.

Wii Sports offers three playing modes - standard, training and multiplayer. The first option offers standard gameplay while training mode allows the player to practice particular facets of each sport. In multiplayer mode, players compete against each other in each sport except for Tennis, where the players can play together in a double match.

The game will award or penalize a player depending on their performance. Awards and penalties in multiplayer mode are not available is some games. Once the player achieves 1000 skill points in a sport, he will receive a “pro level” tag and his Mii will get a distinctive cosmetic feature. Also, the crowds in boxing and tennis (single-player only) will get bigger the higher the player’s skill level is.

Wii Sports also has a fitness test that players can take. This test, which can only be taken once a day per Mii, will measure the player’s fitness age. Results of this fitness test, which is graphed over a period of up to 3 months, can be displayed on the Wii Message Board.

Review Summary

The Wii Sports game features five special sports game. The sports offered are Tennis, Baseball, Golf, Bowling and Boxing. While Tennis, Golf and Bowling allow the presence of 1-4 players, Baseball and Boxing allow only 1-2 players to be involved. To have a better personalised experience, players can use their Mii caricatures by playing against their friends’ Miis. For the Tennis game, players can use the controller like a rack and swing while based on how fast the users swing, the game will then register forehands, backhands, volleys, lobs, slices, spin and power. It also automatically moves players around the court. For Baseball, the Wii Remote acts as a bat and swat or fire fastballs while in Bowling the same remote acts the bowling ball. Allow even being able to swing arms in order to throw the ball. For the Golf game, the controller needs to be hold like a golf club and to be able to swing it in a natural way. The Nunchuk controller in Boxing is used as one glove whereas the Wii Remote as the other which enables players to dodge, weave and even punch their opponents. Wii Sports is a real treat for gamers as for such a price and such quality of game can rarely be found. It also boosts of Wii unique qualities.
