Advantages: Fun, easy to play, good multiplayer - party games, and fun for all the family.
Disadvantages: Limited movement on Tennis, Baseball is poor.
Wii Sports comes with the Wii and at its time, it was a revolution in the gaming world. With a Wii, you control the movements of the characters on screen with your own movements.
The game includes 5 sports:
The baseball game isn't the best on Wii Sports. You have to time the swinging action correctly to hit the ball as far as possible - like in real baseball. However, this is all you do.
Actually, you can bowl as well, but this is fairly limited. I hardly play the baseball game.
This is far more enjoyable, as the game can vary much more. You must take the wind into account (and this changes more drastically as you move up difficulty level - of which there are 3). It can be frustrating when you want to putt, and the sensor doesn't pick up the movement, resulting in you over-hitting the shot!
However, it is fun, and can become competitive. You do need a bit of skill for this.
This is probably the best game on Wii Sports. A brilliant feature is being able to put spin on the ball, to help you knock down all the pins. There are replays shown of your shots, and you can line up shots to perfection. Very fun, and not too easy.
Tennis or bowling are the best games on here. The tennis game is fun, but slightly limited, and frustrating as you can't really move your character, you just hit the ball. If you can get a powerful serve right, then it will help. You can play against the computer, or as doubles. As with a lot of Wii games, you can actually just sit down and flick your wrist, instead of jumping about wildly.
This is quite an entertaining game. You have to punch each other, and you can also block or move to the side by moving the controller. It gets pretty tiring!
There are also extra challenges, such as a massive bowling alley with up to 91 pins! This is a lot of fun, and is hard to get all of them, so you'll be playing for a while. Another bowling game is where you must use different types of shots in bowling to get past obstacles.
There is also a tennis game, where you have to hit the ball against a wall, which is quite hard - it's also quite annoying, as it's hard to control.
In addition, there is a baseball game where you have to hit as many as possible. This is a bit boring, though!
There are a few other extra games, which you can play alone. Multiplayer on the Wii is good fun though.
The gameplay is pretty good, although sometimes movement is limited. A nice feature is being able to play as your Mii character, which can make things more amusing and competitive. The graphics are nice - they're not real life, but are friendly.
The Wii is easy to use, so you can play it at any age. A good family game! It is easy to just jump straight in to a game, and then you can finish quickly too. I play bowling a lot against my brothers and dad (and always win!)
I would recommend you to play it, and if you have a Wii, you should have it anyway.
Summary: Fun for all the family, easy to pick up- slightly limited, but revolutionalised motion sensing games
