Bad

Poor Games, Good Idea

This title has a good idea, bring board games to the interactive Wii. The selection of Chess, Checkers, Backgammon, Navy Wars (a.k.a. Battleship), and puzzle games was a good thought, but needs more games, and some more recent titles. The instructions that are included when playing new games is confusing. So make sure you know how to play the game, or learn it before you try it. The controls did seem extremely easy, once you figure them out. If you can sit and play chess, checkers, or any of the older game title that the game includes for hours on end, or enjoy them and have no one else to play with, this title is for you. I think if they would have added some other titles like Monopoly, Risk, or any thing that has some added game play this would be a winner for me.

Really Bad

Very disappointing!

Well, first off, this game only has 12 games and not the 20+ that the description claims. The graphics are along the lines of the original Nintendo, maybe even the N64, and even that's being a bit kind. Music is awful and the background choices are straight from the 1980's. Menu screens are frustrating and very sub par. Not even sure this game would even make a good party game! Would definitely look elsewhere for a good party game before choosing this one.
