Wii Sports Review

 

A review of the ever addictive Wii Sports for the Nintendo Wii.

For a long time, packaged games were a standard when you bought a system. In the case of Nintendo, these packaged games were great advertisers for the system. Tetris for the Gameboy, Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt for the NES, and Super Mario World for...

Wii Sports - Wii review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Gym class is the worst part of a school's curriculum. There are few things more cringe-inducing than the shrill screech of a coach's whistle. The morning sun turns the basketball courts into giant frying pans. The students around you are in a constant...

Swinging the bat

The premiere title of Wii Sports is undoubtedly Tennis. The game places players in a Doubles Match of Tennis, choosing to play the best of 1, 3 or 5 sets. One thing you are sure to notice five minutes after booting up the game is the simplicity of...

It's been more than a decade since a game console has shipped with a pack-in game right out of the gate. This used to be the standard; Altered Beast came with the Genesis, Tetris came with the Game Boy and Super Mario World was the pack-in for the...

You can’t expect too much from a pack-in game, and Wii Sports is no exception. While it’s true that you will probably have a good time with one or two of the activities presented on this disc, it’s just as likely that you’ll get bored of them after...

Wii Sports Game Review - Nintendo Wii

 

Wii Sports is the first Wii game to support Miis, and the benefits are apparent. You'll get a real kick out of playing as a virtual, simplified version of yourself, and competing with a virtual version of your opponents. It single-handedly justifies...

Great multiplayer game; is capable of drawing in non-gamers; has more depth to its gameplay than it appears; is a great tech demo for Wii controls

You're kidding, right? Rent a pack-in? But you might want to borrow a system if you need any kind of simulation experience in your sports games

There are five games in Wii Sports; simplified versions of Tennis, Golf, Baseball, Bowling and boxing. As the game that is supposed to bring the Wii to the masses, simple rules are understandable, but the lack of options for savvier gamers is not....

Game systems on release haven't had a pack-in game for awhile. Prices don't seem to have done much because of this, but you had to buy games individually. Sure, a couple of years after release, you could get a pack-in around Christmas season – but for...

Overall, Wii Sports is an incredibly solid game on its own and, as a pack in, is just downright incredible. The game does a great job of showing off what the system is about and showcasing the system’s abilities. On that game note, it is simple enough...

Presentation-wise, the game relies on simple visuals and audio. Players are represented through their user created Mii's and most of the backgrounds are generic and rather bland. The music is often limited to the menu and/or victory/losses

Recently, many gamers despaired of even seeing a game included with their gaming machine. As console makers tried to increase profits, gamers entered a period in which systems couldn't be played with just what came packed in the box. True, selling...

No one expected Wii Sports to be a reason to buy Nintendo's new console all on its own, and it is not. However, it adds a lot of value to a package that would be a good. This glorified tech demo is an excellent game for groups, whether the serious...

This pack-in title might be a tutorial in disguise, but it's still tons of fun

As fun as the real thing ; Awesome as a party game ; Wii Fitness keeps you playing

Very little depth ; Not much fun for one player ; Inevitable tennis elbow

Expert review by:

Packed in with each new Wii console is the game Wii Sports, which is designed to not only give value to the package, but also introduce the new control scheme Nintendo has centered its new console around.

A decent showcase for the new control system

Incomplete games ; Some games require more than the hardware that is packed in for multiplayer

It's free, so you're getting what you pay for. Yes, it can be fun, but it should have been a lot better.
