This game isn't the worst and it isn't the best, it's just OK.

Positives, it has 36 minigames that are played on the real show so there is a nice variety. It also follows the show pretty well also with the intro to each game and a description of it along with showing the controls that are needed to perform the challenge.

Some of the games are fun to play and have basic controls using nunchuk and wiimote.

You can play an episode, do a time trial, or practice games.

Negatives

Graphics - They are horrible and look bad, mainly the characters in the game. They're too generic and cheesy. You also start out in a generic outfit that you only can change after you win some money and the new outfits aren't much better.

Game instructions - Some of the games you need to really look at to find out what they really want done. IE: Punch Your Lights Out

The instructions told me to turn off all the lights on the board and that is what I did, but I didn't win.

The second time I tried, I looked to the right of the main board and there is a smaller board with only a few lights on and the rest off, so I figured I needed to only turn the light ones on that board off of the main board.

Wrong again. I realized that after seeing the number /9 in the upper left corner of the screen. Didn't even notice it the first play through, and this time when I noticed it, I saw the numbers were going down when I was turning off the ones that were lit on the smaller board.

So then finally to complete the challenge I had to turn off the lights that were not lit on the smaller board.

Playing an episode, the challenges stay the same for that episode, they don't randomly change which would have been more fun. So if you want to play episode 1, you'll play the same 10 challenges everytime in the same order.

Some games are just boring. Moving on up all you do is rotate between shaking wiimote and nunchuk to move the cups.

Rent if you enjoy the show.
