We Ski & Snowboard
Long Lasting Fun
I had knee surgery during the fall and was going to be out for the whole ski season, so my mom got me this to help ease my disappointment of missing the slopes. I have played both skiing and snowboarding and the controls are very realistic. I like the tutorials and the freedom. This game is one of my "staples".
great pickup and play
there is a free mode where you do what you want and can accomplish goals if you like. there are two mountains instead of one for much more terrain. one Jamboree ski resort is fun with groomed snow boxes rails and jumps, also the terrain park is awesome, but has easier slopes and less intense drops but lets you go off and into the woods in some places. the other mountain is "natural" with giant cliffs near vertical terrain and ski anywhere style this is easily harder and faster. both mountains have a large range of mini games to add interest. also there is a page of goals to accomplish such as ride a secret rail or discover a secret trail witch is very fun. THIS GAME IS GREAT FOR A KIDS GIFT.
This is a great game for anybody.
I have this game and it totally rocks. This is even better than We Ski. You can now jump anytime anywhere. I recommend this to any Wii owner.
This game is a lot of fun for the family. I highly recommend! My kids are 14 and 11 and it is a perfect game to play as a family. I'm very picky, but this is a good one!
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!
What a great game -- love it!!!
We ski and snowboard is a great game. I am a grandmother and 59 years young! I love this game. There are so many thing to do in this game. I bought We ski and I really liked it. Then I saw We ski and snowboard and I knew I was going to get it. The graphics are wonderful. You can use the controller and nunchuk or the balance board. The balance board makes it a little harder, but fun. You can use your own mii if you want or choose an avatar. You can ski or snowboard at the resort or the mountain. The mountain, of course, is more difficult and challenging. You can even have people to ski /snowboard along with you and they are some of your own miis and others or you can do it alone. You can talk to people in the game that represent anything that you may want to do, like racing, half-pipes, lost and found, hide and seek, making deliveries within a time limit , and more. It also keeps a record of all your accomplishments, how many races you won, how many deliveries you made, etc. You do not have to know anything about skiing or snowboarding, there is a school that teaches you the basics and tricks on both. I started out using the skis and now I am doing everything on the snowboard. I am even doing the half-pipes. Anyone will enjoy and love this game. There is just so much to do with this game. You will not get bored. I play it for hours. Try finding the ninjas, the eccentric skiers and snowboarders and the strange girls. You will not be disappointed if you purchase this game.
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.
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..
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.
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!
