The games :
Darts - Controls takes some getting use to, but with some perseverance can be mastered. I would suggest trying high score firstly just to get used to controls before going onto other variations (301, 501, cricket)
Air Hockey - Very fiddly controls make it almost impossible to beat the CPU player, again best played against a friend, even then the amount of silly own goals conceded can become frustrating..
Hoops - Basketball shoot with fiddly control system (done better on Party Carnival), basically the more hoops you shoot, the more tickets you win.
Skii Ball - Roll the ball to try and hit the highest scores (Again control system and feel of game is better on Party Carnival).
Ping Cup - Bit of a weird one. The idea is to through a ping pong ball into one of 10 of your opponants cups?! At first was virtually impossible (after trying to follow on screen instructions), eventually with trial and error I can now hit a few cups, but have yet to complete a game (I normally quit out after about 1/2 hour).
Shuffleboard - A bit like curling on a table. Probably the best game here (again played with a friend as CPU player will beat you). The controls are fairly easy to master after a few minutes and can be quite fun.
Trivia - Oh dear... All questions have strong American slant (unless you are really into US sports and TV then avoid), plus scoring system not well documented in instructions.. Poor. Obviously the developers couldn't be bothered to change the questions for the UK release!
Borrow it if you must and try challenging a friend to Shuffleboard or Darts. Other than that avoid..
The game is simplistic and the only plus is that a few of these mini games are quite fun playing with 2 - 4 players.
On the downside the games are very limited and there are other games out there with more games that are fun to play together. Besides the controls arent always as smooth as you would like them to. The games that come with the Wii are far superior.
Not sure what the value is, but I would not buy it even if it went at a bargain.
The main thing is the all the games are set in calm atmostphere, so if like me you cringe at the constant squeals and irritating soundtrack of Super Mario Charged Football this sequence of team and individual sports has a soothing easy going feel to it.
You earn tickets to unlock new games - however you only earn tickets in single player mode and this really is a family or group sort of thing.
We started with darts, loads of options from 301 through to 701 or cricket style challenge. Easy enough to master the throwing motion. Unlockable game is baseball darts - we've not got there yet.
Hoop Shoot - quite easy to master and a good 10 minute challenge.
Ping Cup, the only infuriating game, throw the ping pong into one of the cups, hmmm we just couldn't get this right.
Shuffleboard, we spent hours on this and it was highly addictive, curling is unlockable.
Skill ball, it's okay feels a bit like bowling on wii sports, once you master it it's simple fun.
Table Hockey - love this simple object of the game, made a little but harder with the slipperyness of the surface.
Only thing we haven't played is trivia, didn't have time after 2 hours.
For under £20 it's a good afternoons entertainment, not recommended for hardcore gamers.
Trivia is too American to be playable by non US people, Shuffle board is a pretty US Centric game, not sure it's too well known outside the US, although it's not too hard to pick up. The games are fun for a few minutes, but nothing here is going to hold your interest for more than an hour at the most (and thats about how long it takes to play each game once). The unlockables are unlocked in a few replays of each game and they don't add anything to the game. Different colours of bats / balls or scenes and different people to play with, none of which seem to change the game mechanics, just the visuals. They've tried to give the game characters the appeal of Mii's but as they can't use Mii's its just not the same.
Controls are so so, there not unresponsive all the time, but sometimes they are, depends on the minigame. It's worse value than Wiiplay in terms of the variety and mix, at least Wiiplay you know it's only purpose is to make the controller pack a bit more reasonable. This has no such luck.
Avoid, buy Zack and Wiki or Endless Ocean.

Interesting games, but for bigger kids. Most of them are not easy for 4-5 years kids.Published 13 months ago by Plamen BG
