We Ski is a Winner!
I originally got this game thinking it would be OK. However, I have been amazingly surprised at the recreation of a "virtual" ski area. This game is awesome with the Wii Fit Balance Board. You can set it up to carve like in the real world. I got a real sense of skiing with this product. The mountain is laid out for a variety of skiing skill sets. From mogul competitions (very challenging), slalom events, bunny hills, icy runs to tuck and go. The mountain has it all. Tons of mini ski challenges which will keep one busy for a while. You can choose from night or day skiing. My best experience was at night. It was snowing and the wind was blowing yet I stayed very warm during the experience! Highly recommend to any one who loves to ski, hates driving, hates lift lines and cringes at high lift ticket prices!!
Great for Anyone!
The game is currently priced at $4.99 which is a great price for this game it has fun challenges and this game doubles in fun if you have the Wii Balance Board by Nintendo. personally this game is great for any one I actually prefer the FPS games such as Halo or COD but this is still a great game.
I know I am wayyyyyyyy late, but I just purchased this game and I had a ball. I bought the game on Friday and I didn't stop playing until Sunday night. The last game I received this must joy from was Resident Evil 4!
My daughter enjoyed this game also. This game is great for both adults and kids. I can't wait to try it out with my Wii fit board!!!!!!!!!
Super entertaining for about 30 mins. per day. Me and my friends say its pretty fun for parties. Wii ski+2 hours=eyes socket burned.
This game I liked because I am a ski fan. It has awesome gameplay with decent graphics. It makes it seem real if you are using a wii balance board. It`s really fun playing with other people. I recommend it especially since it is only 5$. Great for your friends and family.
not bad but better games then this
there is more better games than this I recommend conduit 2.
I don't have a balance board but I know someone who has the game and says the board is a pain in the butt because you constantly have to reconfigure everything to a persons weight.
I am not a huge skier but I thought the game looked fun. You can use a wiimote and a nunchuck. The game has a ski school where you can learn the basics of skiing which is pretty fun. You can customize certain characters, you can also use you nintendo created mii's if you chose to do so EXCEPT they can not be customized with ski gear or anything. I can kind of seeing it getting boring just skiing around the mountains after awhile. unless you seek out people and do mini challenges for them. I think the graphics are good and crisp, the music is nice although the ski school teachers voice gets on my NERVES.. so all in all I dont feel like I was duped on this game.. Haven't tried out the ski races yet! Still in ski school learning to ski lol!
This game's so cool, it's like it's always winter!
We Ski was truely a great original entry in the list of Wii titles, one that is frequently overlooked as one of the Wii's best while yet to those who've played it, it's right up there with the big releases. We Ski is basically what the title suggests: skiing. You are either your Mii or an avatar created specifically for the game (not at all like a Mii). The game's a free roamer with no real ending or point; thus it's great for a party. Not only that, but within the game there are challenges to hone your skiing skills: simple races, mogul challenges to even food deliveries (which are the funnest--if you take a certain approach to them such as mine which is ramming into the food recipient at high speeds and screwing up the delivery). Each time you complete one of the mountain's hills, a ranking is given to see how you did; these and doing the activities earn you "stars" which are used to unlock more gear to customize your character's outfit. Another cool thing is that while you ski at certain locations you can have a photo taken with you and your fellow skiing friends and pick poses; after the photo is taken and saved it can be sent to the Wii Message Board to send to other friends. The controls are a snap and easy to learn with Ski School, which explains the controls perfectly. This makes the game a must have and no matter if you buy this game or its successor We Ski and Snowboard, you're bound to get a perfect game!
When you use the balance board for this game, the skiing is very fun, exciting, and indoor. I think they captured real skiing very well, but the cartoony, fun graphics aren't really my style. I would recommend this game to any one who wants to be a skier, is a skier, or just likes fun games. The controls with the balance board are excellent, but when you try to go fast and tuck without it, it is nearly impossible to turn. I found the challenge very easy, the races progress in difficulty, but they are still way too easy even the last one. Also, the delivery, pick-up, mogul, and terrain park challenges are all simple. The amount of jumps in the game is minimal, and there is only one terrain park. If you want a cheap, fun, and semi-short lasting game that is very amusing, this game is a good choice. Hints in Game: there is a secret trail that can be skied on first when you do the last pick-up challenge. There is a secret trick if you can find a certain guy on the side of a trail (rodeo 1080)
Wii We Ski
We played this game prior to buying, It was really awesome!!! We have played all levels of this game and we also found hidden trails to ski by accident, The only downfall to this game was some things are hard to find when you take certain challenges from interactive players in the game. Its overall a really fun and exciting game, It really helps with the hand eye coordination to play and its not your average sit down and play type game, we did get online and got some tips from the online cheats but overall they didn't provide a whole lot of info that we did not already figure out on our own. I do highly recommend this game for any family with young kids and we will be purchasing the 2nd version Wii We Ski Snowboarding as soon as it comes out.Great fun for all!!!
