This game was fun for about a month and then it showed just how low the replay value was. It started as a 9 so I gave it that but after a while the limitations outweigh the fun. Would recommend to kids that love ticket arcades but even they would get bored after some time.

Graphics are ok - you choose from a bunch of typical generic Mii type characters, then watch most of the games through your chosen Mii's transparent head. Unlockables seem pointless, as they are just different Miis and the like. There are only 7 games:
Darts: Aim with the wiimote, lock on, then hold the wiimote like a dart, holding the A button down. Jab forward and release the A button to throw. Difficult to gauge how hard to swing the wiimote.
Hoop Shooting: Swing the wiimote overhand, let go of the A button, and watch the basketball's random motion. Unplayable.
Ping Cup: Bounce the ball into a set of cups set up like bowling pins. Lock on and toss similar to darts, but with an overhand throw instead of a jab. Same control issue.
Shufffleboard: Move side to side and angle with the + pad, 1 and 2 buttons. Hold A, jab, release A. Same as darts and ping cup, dificult to gauge how hard to jab.
Skill Ball (aka Skee ball): Shuffleboard with and underhand throw. I wasn't able to get the ball halfway up the ramp.
Table Hockey: 3/4 overhead view that some don't like. I thought it was fine. Similar to real table hockey in that I score on myself more often than my opponent, but that's just me.
Trivia: Spin the wheel to get a catagory, answer multiple choice question. Not bad.
As a single player game, you'll be bored in half an hour (unless you really love one of the games in real life), but it's not designed for that. With practice, the control issues seem like they could be overcome. As a party game, some of the games could be fun, especially trivia.
