The arenas are a good size, which is not bad, but when your character is Tom Thumb proportions you spend 80% of your time trying to figure out where you are (unless you want to sit really close to your TV). There are exceptions across the 45 different minigames, such as the Music Minigames where accurate button pushing reigns supreme and you never move.
