Wii Play - Game Only
Just get it for the Wii Remote
In all honesty, I think I just got this game for the second Wii Remote. I don't remember. It's alright for a Wii game, I guess. There's multiple mini-games on there for variety but the shooting, fishing, pool, find Mii, and tanks are the best ones on there. If you're into mini-game compilations or are new to the Wii, I would recommend this.
I think this is a really fun game. Because it has more than 1 or 2 games, so you won't get board. I also like that more than one person can play. Try the tank one if you get it it is so much fun. Because you say please don't shoot me. Then they just shoot and not at you. But it manages to got you anyway. O also like this game because it is not violent. The tank one isn't violent. It is just cute. Please buy this.
Very fun. This game is pretty much a game with a bunch of mini games in it. This is a game more for kids then it is for adults. I would reccomend to do two players. Pretty good.
i was looking for some variety from wii sports and sports resort.
but this game was a mistake. the mini games are far to simple and short. and the controls are horible at best. this game might be good for little kids if the controls worked better but they dont. i would not recomend this game for anyone.
Wii Play-A VERY FUN GAME FOR ALL GAMERS, AGE 0-100
This game is suitable for kids,teenagers,adults,any age. I gave this a 7 because there are other games I'd go to play before I'd go to play this one. There's no backround sound,just sound in the mini-games and sometimes there is no sound. The graphics aren't something to complain about either. My favorite mini-games are: 3. Shooting Range 2. Find Mii 1. Tanks! Once you play it you continue to play for 1 hour-3 hours,unlike some games where you continue to play for 2 weeks. All the mini-games are very fun. IT'S A GREAT GAME FOR ANYBODY.
When i get this game i get it cuz back on 2008 and 2009 it comes with a WiiMote , and i just played this game and i can say its fun and really makes a good use of the WiiMote with some fun minigames like Pool , a Shooting Range and more to do , is simple and its like Wii Sports but with Minigames but still fun to play on the Wii
Slightly fun at first
This is a little fun trying the few games there are but after playing them all a few times it's boring. The games are target shooting, Mii finding, bull racing, billiards, table tennis, match Mii to bubble, fishing and tanks which is the only fun one. This is a kids only game.
The first sign that the Wii was not too original.
Over my time on Gamestop.com, I've only reviewed what I thought have been good games. That's boring, decidedly. So, I'm starting a series of reviews with games I feel are not of good quality. First up: Wii Play, a game I was ecstatic about at the time I got my Wii, but find it to be too simplistic to be fun...much like Ghost Squad, but that game had merit for its plot and fun arcade action. Regardless, Wii Play has none of that. Nintendo clearly made this game with the casual gamer in mind. It's not for the hardcore. There's no plot are real depth to the game. The game boasts 12 mini-games, all of which work well, but are similar and seemingly rehash one another. The Mario Party's, in this case, had more originality. The mini-games in Wii Play, before playing them, will show you through pictures how to play the mini-game you're about to play. It's helpful and the games work fine. Nobody knows how to use the Wii's motion control capabilities like Nintendo, so this works better than 9/10 of the other mini-game-filled games on the Wii. They're too simple to provide any entertainment or replay value, unless you are with a friend who enjoys mini-games and the Wii. Some mini-games have you repeat an action over and over while others have you guess how many Miis are in a dark room. It serves no real purpose and there is hardly what I would call a sense of accomplishment. The graphics are crisp and clean, which is nice. Nintendo is intelligent like that. They know how to make games look satisfactory, at the very least. The sound is very bland, however. The same sound effects are used constantly with no soundtrack, basically. These kind of monotonous games had been done before on other game systems, and this game may have foretold what was to come on the Wii: the Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games's and the Carnival Games's. Wii Play is too simple to hold any merit. You could do better with Wii Sports Resort, which comes with Wii MotionPlus. Wii Play is, by way of monotony, an unenjoyable experience.
Only Fun with a friend
Wii play is a mini game collection to show what the wii can do. It features 9 mini games which are shooting range, find mii, charge, fishing, pose mii, table tennis, tanks, billiards, and table tennis. This game alright with friends and pretty decent.
I like the Wii. I believe that, for 2006, it was a very revolutionary console and took some major steps forward in gaming, as Nintendo always has paved the way for different gaming fads. The Wii has the capability of showing what true motion gameplay can be like and games definitely demonstrate that, including Zelda on the Wii, Mario on the Wii, and Wii Sports, among others. But Wii Play does not follow in the said games' footsteps. The game is so perplexingly simplistic that it lacks any real depth or quality. Summed up, it's not a good game. So, if you're a new Wii owner looking to buy a game as a tutorial, I encourage to buy Wii Play. It's only $10 and it shows the blueprints for what real games can be like on the Wii, but Wii Play feels more like a tech demo released in retailers. Simple games are not always bad, however. Wii Sports, Mario Kart, and plenty of other games have proved this rule wrong, Wii Play is just a dozen mini-games, the control schemes of which had been seen previously in other games prior to Wii Play's release. First, the controls: they work fine. Nobody knows the Wii better than Nintendo and the game is far from broken, but the same actions are done so many times that it eventually just becomes a monotonous task rather than a fun diversion. Highering the difficulty hardly mixes up the action either. The graphics are just as simple. Nintendo went with the WIi Sports-style approach. In Wii Sports, it was definitely not a bad thing, seeing as how the game was packed in in the first place and showed the Wii's capabilities, but the fact that Wii Play nearly mimics that and was sold originally at $49.99 is laughable. The sound is very generic too. The good thing I have to say about interface is that it's very crisp and clean, which most likely comes with its simplicity. It's easy to see all the action and movement and the menus are streamlined. As I said earlier too, I had no trouble playing the game. It controlled perfectly and just as I was told to do so on-screen (even though the billiards mini-game is a bit weird), but the game's simplicity and lack of layers certainly detract from the experience. Multiplayer is a less bad experience. Playing with a buddy is fun because it allows for some better and more equal competition and, well, it's always better to play with someone at your side. The game shows all of its value in a mere matter of 20-30 minutes. After that, there's nothing else to do. It's an empty experience with no real goals or accomplishments. A much better alternative to Wii Play would be Wii Sports Resort. Simple as that.
