Wii Sports 2It's Wii Sports, with no real reason to get it. At least with Wii Sports there was motion, with this there is nothing, at least that works.

GarbageThis game is horrible. You must create an avatar separate from your Mii and then anyone else that plays with you must play as a guest that can't be customized for left/right handed opposite the main account. The game freezes regularly while loading the games and gameplay overall is poor. Do not buy this game.

Horribly UnfinishedIf I had to guess why this game is so bad, I'd have to say it was probably rushed out WAY too soon. For what my wife paid for this, I felt absolutely awful having to break it to her that the game was terrible. When we went to trade it in for something else, she almost cried when they gave us $12.00. PLEASE save your money and bypass this game. It's not even worth half of the pre-owned value and if I could get it for that, I'd still feel ripped off.

Not a terrible game, as some would have you think.This is a fun local multiplayer experience that has a decent selection of sports to entertain your friends and family. Football (Soccer), Tennis, and Golf can be played alone, competittively, or cooperatively. While Cart Racing, Baseball and American Football can on be played competitively or alone. Baseball and Football can only be played by two players at once but both gams offer tournements to allow more players to participate in turns. Cart Racing allows 1-5 players simultaneously and is by far my faveorite game included. There are numerous tracks 12 I think with 11 open from the start and 1 unlocked via Uplay rewards through in game achievements. This is a more realistic approach to cart racing than other cart racing games. Those used to shooting objects at other racers and grabing powerups to help harry you away may not like this though. The rest of the games aside from Golf and Tennis deviate from the normal formula for sports games and have you switch control styles between the gamepad and wiimote while some have you orient the wiimote differently at different phases of play. This game does not require wiimotes, but for most games and for all but 1 multiplayer mode does require a wiimote.

Really Nintendo?This game is TERRIBLE. Not even close to Wii Sports. Everygame is too difficult to enjoy, or too easy to make challenging. They basically made this game to show what they can do with the Gamepad and it's not impressive at all. The games are slow and laggy and you have to keep switching controlers after each turn. Bottom line, not worth it. Buy Wii Sports again so you can waste your money on something actually fun.
