Very fun for all the family
Great multiplayer abilities
Gets you active
Good loading times
Only 5 games in all- tennis, bowling, baseball, golf and boxing
Wii sports is a great starter game to be bundled in with the wii- it makes great use of the wii's incredible controllers and will make everyone in the house gather round to watch. The multiplayer abilities are very good but require more wiimotes, which can be bought for an extra £29 each. It is also easy to use and gets progressively harder to suit the abilities of the player. I will quickly cover all five games:
Tennis: This is my favourite game as it is surprisingly accurate- if you lob the ball it will go up in the air, if you hit the ball to late it will go out of play and if you hit it hard it will go faster. This game allows up to 4 people playing. So I give Tennis 10/10
Bowling: Again very accurate if to put spin on the ball you'll get spin and if you bowl fast the ball will go fast. The only problem with bowling is that its too easy someone whos never played before will get a number of strikes in their first go. It will allow 4 people to play against each other. I give it 6/10
Baseball: Is the hardest game to play and it does make your arms sore. It is very technical, thought and will allow you to perform fastballs, curve balls, screwballs and splitters. You can have two people playing- one batting and one fielding. As it is hard i will give it only 6/10.
Golf: Is quiet hard but very addictive the detail on the course it good so is a good game overall. It will support 4 people playing. 8/10
Boxing: This is the only game which utilizes the nunchuk controller for your other hand. This is a very active game and will drain your energy quickly. You can perform many different moves- dodges, uppercuts, hooks, etc. The vibrating features and small speaker come in useful in this game. Two people can play split screen. This wil require the purchase of another nunchuk (£15)
The loading time on wii sports is great and so are the miis (virtual people) who come into play in every game. Wii sports it an excellent game which I fully recomend. 9/10. Thanks for reading my review.
