This is a game that I would have expected to have embraced all types of users and the current accessories - no use is made of the Motion Plus accessory or worse the Wii Fit Board. To me, that is the serious flaw of this game as the game requires balance and what better tool than the Wii Fit Board.
Which ever sport you play, the easy mode is difficult requiring great anticipation and reflex action. I'd say I was an accustomed player of many types of games. Either the controls were either insensitive, over sensitive or confusing to get accustomed to. The tutorials are not tutorials per say, they are a 'how to...' use the controls, they provide no advice on how to do the sport, what to look out for or how to improve. The 'tutorials' are not tailored to the experience level you are on displaying expert actions for the novice. There is no 'training ground' for any of the sports where a 'coach' could give you advice, the game expects you to hone your skills in 'competition' where no advice is given. You can't control the weather so as you descend there are fog patches making it difficult to anticipate, making it hard for the novice.
The only series of cups I've attempted is the Rookie. In this, the games does not allow you to customise the AI so you end up competing against 'Normal' AI players very early on. As mentioned even 'Easy' is difficult. Just after loading a Cup, the intro is needlessly long with no option of skipping seeing the AI players refusing to have their photo taken or talking to journalists.
I've played this game now for a total time of 90mins with little progress and so disappointed with it. I've not been able to get to grips with the game or how to use the controls effectively.
