I am really surprised. When I got this game, I thought it was going too frustrate me with control issues. But the exact opposite happened. Rather than finding a game that will bore and frustrate me, I found a fun game with plenty of stuff to do. Now, I will review the games in the order they are in on the menu screen.
Tap Runner:It's a basic platformer with a new twist. The controls are basically tap lightly to run, tap heavily to jump. It's that simple. As you progress in the game you will find other obstacles in your way. They range from Hurdles, to electric balls, to branching pathways, to springs, and to escalators. This was the best game in the collection.
Rhythm Tap:This game is basically a Guitar Hero clone. You tap at different levels for the different collored orbs(Light=Blue, Medium=Green, Heavy=Red). The only problem is, you can never judge power. It was a fun game, but it was the second worst on the collection as well.
Silent Blocks-It's a fun puzzle game. It is simple but fun. Its the middle game on the collection.
Bubble Voyager-This game is a fun shoot em' up similar to Galaga in the single player mode. But in the multiplayer mode, it is like Asteroids. It is the second best game in the entire collection.
Visualizer-This is the worst game on the collection. It is more of a relaxation tool than anything. It basically controls like this, you tap and things happen on the screen. That is all. It is a boring game, but it is also the most beautiful game on the collection.
So what is my final verdict? Buy the game. You will have a blast playing the single player and a ton of fun with friends.
The addictive theme song lead me astray. The games aren't much fun at all and the whole tapping concept is made difficult because the system always thinks you're tapping too hard, even if the sensor level is compensated for in the game's settings.
This is a quick turn-around return for me from gamefly. And it's not my wiimote - I own 4 and they're all perfect for all other games, just not Lets Tap. That's a programming problem.
