Go Vacation (Wii)


In an ideal world, the term "family vacation" conjures up visions of fun intergenerational activities in a beautiful setting bookended by car trips filled with tasty snacks and merry sing-alongs. Sadly, such trips are more often portrayed as arduous...

Go Vacation Playtest: A Vacation In A Sandbox World


You've arrived at Kawawii Island Resort. The island offers tons of activities to participate in across four resorts — Marine, City, Snow and Mountain. Your agenda: Have fun.

Each Resort holds 7 treasure chests for you to seek out, which contain unique costumes for your avatar. Some NPCs tend to give you indirect hints about their locations, but there’s another method to help you find them…

A familiar family outing

Open world allows players to explore the resort, cheery atmosphere, great for children

Shallow minigames, inaccurate waggle control, repetitive

Go Vacation Review


Had Namco Bandai polished the controls in Go Vacation and slapped a $29 price tag on the box, I'd recommend a used copy. Unfortunately, the game is not something worth playing.

On your mark, get set, Go Vacation.

A ton of different activities ; Four huge resorts to explore ; Great fun with family and friends

A number of activities play very similarly ; Some activities are boring and aren't worth replaying

If you're looking for a great multiplayer game to play with friends and family, Go Vacation is an extremely solid choice. The developer made a few strange choices that hurt the experience, but overall Go Vacation is a trip worth taking.

Hidden collectibles ; More depth than other minigame collections

Traveling around the island is tedious ; Some very odd minigames ; Minigames unlocked via single player “campaign

Minigame collections have become synonymous with the Wii. From representations of realistic activities like Wii Sports to the more absurd Rabbid-filled diversions, you can find pretty much anything in minigame form, even Beer Pong. The genre is flooded...

Go Vacation is a shallow, kid-friendly minigame collection with nice open spaces and overly simplistic games.

Big resorts encourage exploration ; Everything is very accessible ; Playing with a group is fun

Minigames are shallow ; Some modes of travel are tiresome ; Abundant loading screens

Like a theme park designed specifically for children, Go Vacation may look appealing to adults. The open-world setting makes each play session more flexible than the disjointed minigame parade of other similar games, and the ability to do it all with...

Save your frequent flier miles - your vacation has arrived.

Go Vacation evolves the mini-game collection genre in many ways, but it lacks the polish of Nintendo's first party efforts. The open world island, while fun to explore, feels empty because of the lifeless NPCs that haunt its shores. You’ll find plenty...

Fantastic free roaming game that sustains interest


A fun game with a good structure that lasts for ages and no stressful requirements for your mii/avatar needed. A must-buy.

Brilliant graphics ; So much to do and explore ; Novelty lasts for ages ; Sustains interest for hours ; Responsive controls ; A good structure, lots to unlock and minigames to do ; Free roaming aspect ; Ability to play multiplayer ; Range of games

Not that much interaction with other avatars

Mii but no online


If you are going to advertise a game with a bullet point promoting ONLINE PLAY: Great for the Whole Family - Play with up to 4 players on one system or go online and play multi-player against other vacationers and challenge their records the game...

You can play as your Mii. Nice setup. Lots of potential

Despite saying so in he bullet points I can't for the life of me find a way to get online to play with other people or posts scores to a leaderboard. I really don't think theres' any online whatsoever
