Wii Play (With BONUS Remote)

Action video game by Nintendo for the Nintendo Wii

< read all 4 reviews

The controller is great! The game... well... yeah.

I love my Nintendo Wii. I wrote a review about it right after I got it. It's a wonderfully fun little machine! Now that I've got it online, I've downloaded all sorts of stuff, voted in polls and had a generally grand time! What I lacked was a second controller.

Enter "Wii Play".

Don't buy this game for the game. The game is crap. "Wii Sports" is better and more entertaining and you get that for free. But to make "Wii Sports" even more fun, you need a second player. For that, a second controller is vital. Since you need one anyhow, buy this bundle.

"Wii Play" isn't completely bad. The cow racing, laser hockey, shooting and pool games are basically fun and provide some dandy two-player action. The others are forgettable.

So in short: don't by this game for the game. Certainly don't buy the seprate version of the game. But since you need another controller, buy this bundle. Get the controller. Spend $[...] on a game you might play for a couple hours.

Pros: Not a bad price to keep your kids occupied.     Cons: Will not hold an adult's interest very long.     The Bottom Line: I would recommend trying to purchase a system that has two controllers and it instead of this.     My wife and I purchased a Wii game for our daughter in March. The only problem that we have found out was that it did not come with two controllers. So it was very hard for her to have a lot of fun with this game playing …

Pros: Great variety of games in one game     Cons: Little action can make it boring after a while     The Bottom Line: A great game to play that utilizes the Wiimote in a variety of ways, but very simplistic making it somewhat boring after a while.     Wii Play has a total of nine stages of play. You must first unlock all the stages by playing each one once and unlocking the stages in order. It does not matter if you do bad on the stage. …
