In Family Ski for the Nintendo Wii, you can use the 'Balance Board' which comes with Wii Fit, to (in theory) have a fun and lifelike skiing experience. In fact, Family Ski is the first standalone game which incorporates the balance boards abilities. The game itself is pretty good fun, but there are areas which definitely could have been improved. Firstly, if you've just finished playing the very limited (but fun) skiing game featured in Wii Fit, then you won't be that impressed with Family Ski's graphics - which are considerably less bold, darker, and feature many jagged edges or 'jaggies'. The way the nunchuk controller and Wii remote are used as ... Read the complete review

Wii is one of the greatest games consoles that I have ever purchased and I absolutely love all of the games that I have played on it to date. Wii Family Ski is a game that up to five people can play and requires the Wii Fit to be able to play. It took me a while to find the Wii Fit or as it is also known the balance board but I kept on searching and got there in the end. Wii Family Ski lets you create a character from scratch or you can import your Mii character too whilst selecting different ski gear for your character. You need to use the Nunchuck and Remote in your hands to use as ski poles and step on the Wii Board to really take advantage of ... Read the complete review

After hearing about this game from a few friends and having some skiing experience I decided I would get this game for the kids so that they could experience a part of the sport before we go away next year. I had also heard that it uses some actual skiing techniques which I thought could be very useful. In this area I was not disappointed. The game relies upon genuine skiing experiences, so everything from the snowplough to the parallel stop has been included in this game. The map and ski runs on the game are also very comprehensive, runs are included with everything from moguls to jumps. However I was disappointed that there weren't any unlockable courses ...

Another superb game for the WII - and it makes use of the WII Balance board. Does exactly what it says on the tin to coin a phrase! the family loved it and it was a great game for the little ones as they were able to do the races with out much guidance so didn't get bored. I found it quite difficult to master the WII board at first to be honest but after a while i was whizzing about, I ski alot and althought its not 100% like the real thing its a game and gives non-skiers a good idea of what skiing could be like. I loved the graphics and the sound effects and the girls loved dressing there WII Character and then accesorising before ... Read the complete review

This game had a great idea, skiing using the wii fit balance board but the game isn't very good and won't last you very long. The game would be great if put together in Wii Fit or another game but not by itself. The graphics are ok but not as good as other games for the Wii such as Mario Kart or some sports on Wii Sports. The game has a bad soundtrack and has many framerate problems. The game also crashes at time and the buttons aren't very responsive. The games controls aren't very reactive and don't work well with Wii Fit board. The game doesn't have many modes and the ones that it does have will see you get very bored quickly. ...
