Fantastic Wii game for both Wii and Wii U. 2-Player fun, get it!! A+++
Great classic from the original Wii. Sure, it came bundled in some retail stores as the Wii Play bundle, but that doesn't make the games it does offer any less entertaining.
My girlfriend and I have our Wii U attached to a 720P projector displaying on a 120" screen, so the more involving Wii games are pretty intense. With this game, however, since nothing really requires major movements, we play more for the experience.
We like all the minigames and their challenges, but most notable to us are the neon air-hockey type game, the duck hunt clone, the tank game, and the 9-Ball game.
- Neon hockey on a projector screen that takes up almost the entire wall of your condo's living room is super intense at night. Watching the puck go back and forth across the wall is an experience I can best describe as hypnotising. It's a game that's great with friends, and even more awesome when there's substances involved (alcohol, etc).
- Duck hunt... it's duck hunt with two players. Think about it. You always wanted it when you were a kid. It's fantastic, just as good as you had hoped.
- Tank game - cute little war game between you and your ally, and the enemy. Enemies get progressively better weapons/faster/smarter... see how many you can kill before you both die (single player has lives, 2-player is round-based survival... if you both die in a single round, it's game over)
- 9-Ball ... this is probably the best game for teaching someone the basics on playing 9-Ball. My girlfriend and I used to go play pool together, and she's really not that creat. I can tell her all day long what to look for and how to judge angles and distance, but I can't see through her eyes to tell her if she's looking at what I'm telling her... With this game, we're both looking at the same thing, we can envision the angles, we work on stroke, power, and english. This is the pool equivalent of Wii Sports' bowling. They really should be bundled together on a single disc, along with a pinball game for that true bowling alley feel. Hah! Seriously though, 9-Ball on this game rocks!
There's some other games, which are all pretty fun, like this puzzle-bubble game. Basically, your Mii has to take the shape of the silhouette in the bubble. The interesting thing is that there are three shapes, and it requires you to ROTATE your Wiimote. This is one of the only games I've seen that takes advantage of the accelerometer in such a way to sense if you're holding it rightside-up or upside-down. You have to not only get your character in the right shape, and then position them over the bubble, but you have to have them oriented the right direction by rotating. Couple that with a 2nd player, and a progressively more abundant downpour of bubbles, and you have a fast-paced frenzy that's fantastically frantic fun!
There's a fishing game; it's fun. Could be more to it, but it's timed. The timer takes away from the game for me, because I actually like to take my time fishing, not with a timer.
Table Tennis is fun, albeit awkward for the person on the far side of the table. It's hard to judge distance of the ball when you're on the opposite end, so you miss occasionally.
There's a racing-type game with a timer that guarantees you'll never cross a finish line
Those are the ones I can remember. I think I missed two or three. They were all fun, but the ones above are the most notable.
If you're looking for a fun Wii Game, get it for under $10, it's well worth the money!
