Rated 10 out of 10 by NicholasWonders Really? GREAT GAME!!
I have played the Original We Ski at my friend's house, because i myself do not own a wii, but when he told me he read in nintendo power that We ski and snowboarding was coming out, I FREAKED! When he told me this, i was so excited to hear about it, i really wanted to play it in the worst way, so we waited and waited, and finally it came out, the fact that you can jump ANYWHERE unlike in We ski, where you were limited to just the red arrowed mounds, was so much fun! When i began to play, i played with Ride the mountain, and it was the most fun i've had in a wii game, if i were to recommend any Wii game, i'd recommend this one game, because most wii games get boring after about 3 or 4 days, but this never gets boring! You can continue to create and play! And you can't get lonely either, for the fact that you can bring anyone you make with you to hang with!! Buy this game if your looking for a game that will not get old!
Rated 9 out of 10 by tcrunner25 One of the best on the Wii to date!
As a college kid, I have been looking for the next Wii game I would buy. Today, I picked up a great game....We Ski and Snowboard. We Ski and Snowboard is a fun game. I did not play We Ski, so this is my first go around with the We Ski series. For the Wii, this game actually looks pretty good. I have not really paid much attention to the sound in the game thus far. I do know that there is a music player built into the game you can use if you would like. I do not have the balance board, but the controls with the Wii remote and nuncuk work great. The game offers training on how to do tricks and basic controls. For beginners like me, this is a great feature. I absolutely love the multiplayer in this game. You can play with up to 4 people and if you choose to roam around the resort or the mountain, each player can do as they wish. Each player can explore the resort or mountain on their own. I really like that aspect of the game. All in all, We Ski and Snowboard may just be one of the best games out on the Wii. It is a fun experience that everyone can enjoy.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Da Bomb 21 This is why the Wii was made
We ski blew my mind when I played it and showed me what the Wii could do. I thought that it was very possibly the best game for the Wii. Until I played We Ski and Snowboard. This game is a fantastic experience for anybody who loves to have fun, I mean anyone would love this game. In the original We Ski, I felt a little bit limited on what I could do because once you had done the runs a couple times through it wasn't as fun as it was the first time, but this game has so many more slopes, and has a exceptional trick course, which I felt that We Ski was sort of lacking.There is also the ride the mountain mode which drops you from a helicopter, and there are totally different slopes, and it's very enjoyable. The only thing I didn't find great was the multiplayer, because there is no split screen, it's just one screen that both people have to use, which gets to be a pain because you can't see your skiier/snowboarder sometimes. Everything else is magnificent. This game definitely gives you all the possibilities. If you liked We Ski, you'll undoubtedly love We Ski and Snowboard the first second you play it. : )
Rated 10 out of 10 by Tim in Texas We Ski & Snowboard
Bought the original We Ski for my son, We both played until we have almost mastered the whole game, Just bought the New We Ski & Snowboard - Well it is definately different, especially with the Balance Board, But we play mostly with just remote & nunchucks, Anyway back to my point... This game is definately more challenging, I still cannot master the tricks, the half pipe course is awesome but I severely stink at it. I would recommend this game to anyone.. And if you don't have the original well it's just as fun... We wrote down all the controls for the tricks on paper, so as we play we can glance over and read and perform them correctly to get higher points. Have not found any secret trails or anything like in the original, but still looking...some of the challenges throughout the game you do are hard, we keep failing them so we keep going back over and over until we pass them. So in closure to my review... If you do not OWN this game for you or your family you are missing out. Also to include it's a stand up be active kind of game- gets you off the couch and on your feet kind of family action... So buy We Ski & Snowboard & the Original We Ski... you won't regret it..
Rated 9 out of 10 by pug rocker Even better then We ski
I have had We ski for a while but then when We ski and snowboard came out my brother found out about it and we went and got it! Its better then We ski because you can change from ski to snowboard whenever you want! There is a big resort with awesome grinding bars and moves. You can even jump through a big donut at one part! Im glad they put skiing and snowboarding together it makes it way better. In this game you can be an avatar if you want maybe if you do not have a Mii. You can also go on a huge mountain and go off it its really fun but watch out for avalanches! Once your done your day on the mountain come back to the resort in a helicopter and do more skiing and snowboarding there! Keep skiing till' you fall and keep snowboarding till' you drop. Endless fun and adventure in WE SKI AND SNOWBOARD!

Have you had bad experience with lack of a good wii game? Stop here at this game. Whether you ski or if you don't the the difference between Armada's or Walmart skis this is a great game for everyone young and old. I bought this game 3 days after it came out and didn't have time to write a review because all my free time went to this game. So basically there is Jamboree Snow Resort which is based off of Tahoe, California which is a nice resort in which you can find anything from easy greens to the terrain park to the exciting reds(black diamonds). then you can go heli-skiing at Mt. Angrio which is based off of K2. Here there is a stereotype that the higher you are the harder the runs are. For example the hardest run on the game is at the top and you get chased by an avalanche half of the time which you can either find annoying or the most exciting part of the game. I have had this game for almost a month now and i still get excited about when im in class(by the way im in Hi skewl--ALL AGES)at mt angrio there are hidden courses and at the menu you can customize your mii or avatar which keeps you hooked on this game. so in all get this AT A GREAT PRICE!! and with excellent fun.
Rated 10 out of 10 by a gamer's point of view GREAT GAME.....BUT WITH ONE CATCH
This is one of the best wii games i have in my collection. The realism and the graphics are amazing. I like how you can take photos and pose differently with your mii and other miis.You can import them to your photo channel. With the wii balance board you can ski and snowboard unlike the last we ski. To snowboard you place the balance board vertically and use your wii remote and nun chucks. To ski you place the balance board regularly and use your wii remote and nun chucks. For all you people who don't have the balance board, you just do what i said in the last sentence, just without the balance board. Remember that one catch I mentioned in my title, well here it is. Just like the last wii ski THIS GAME TAKES UP ALL YOUR BLOCKS!!!! Overall, this is a very good wii game to own.

Wow... One of the better Wii games gets a good-looking redo this March. I enjoyed the first game, there was a lot of room for improvement, but it was still very enjoyable. The multiplayer was a blast, especially the missions with friends (me and my friend's version trying to mess up as badly as possible) so I have high hopes for this one. One feature which appears to, sadly, be absent is any form of Wi-Fi connection. Namco SHOULD have taken full use of this game mode, plus the new and still highly unused Wii Speak device, could have made this game's ratings skyrocket. Gripes of this lack aside, the core of the game is still here, Mii's of yourself available and all. The nice looking graphics and new locals make me ready for a second round of slopes on the Wii!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Chris528 Makes me want to hit the slopes!!!
I use to ski a lot and I haven't in a while. When we ski came out I didn't buy it. But when we ski and snowboard came out it looked interesting. The wii balance board makes it 10x more fun! I wasn't getting much use at all out of my wii balance board but now I use it all the time! This game is so much fun. The characters are so cool and there are so many different runs and challenges. I would recommend this game to anyone who has been waiting for a really good wii game to come out! This is like the first really good wii game to come out since mario party 8 (which I am very anxiously looking forward to a mario party 9). Buy this game and it will not be a waste of money. Add it to your birthday list or easter list and you will be very happy to receive it as a present.
Rated 10 out of 10 by VideoGame-Aholic Uber Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Even though I'm still renting it, I'm sure that I'll be buying soon! I absolutely love it. I'll play it for hours on end! The first I heard of it was when I was looking for something to rent, so I looked at the back of the box and i fell in love...litterally! I would recommend this to anyone who loves games that involve Miis. You can ride in a helicopter to any place on the mountain (rarely it will be a UFO!), invite someone to ride with you, and race! But don't take my word for it! Try it yourself! I doubt you won't like it. So, if you're looking for a game that lets you do a variety of things, then We Ski and Snowboard is for you!!!! So order it here, rent it, or go to a friend that has it, because if you don't you're missing out on a lot of things.
