This is a fun rent and would be a good buy as long as the price is right. The dodgeball game was a blast, the guys can really build up some steam on the throws and smack someone in the head, the girl throwers were very weak. The Go Karts were fun too, alot like Mario cart. The frisbee golf was alot of fun alot if you did throw too hard the frisbee would just fly like a wounded duck and die. Overall i would buy this game for a good price.

Bad

Not worth the effort

Initially the game looked like it would be fun. Players had fun creating their families and customizing their look. The ability to play individual games or competitions seemed like a nice feature. The games are not bad, but not great either. However, for a game touted as a 4 person game, there is initially only one game 4 players can play together. The remainder of the games only allow 1 or two players. The voice over instructions do not match the written screen directions, and no additional instructions were available.

Overall, players grew tired of waiting for their turn, or not understanding how to be effective in the games. While a decent one night rental, it did not hold interest and will be returned in next mail.

Really Bad

Vacation Sports - a disappointment

After playing Wii Sports, I was excited to play Vacation Sports. But, I was sorely disappointed. Vacation Sports can be played sitting down completely. Air hockey is hard to control and can be controled by a flick of a wrist. Darts is painfully easy. Disk Golf is awkward, at best. Go-karts only works well if you have the steering well. And the other games are mind numbingly dull.
If you're not looking to get in ANY exercise, are a kid who is new to the Wii, or are looking to kill time brainlessly. This is the game for you. If not, just let it alone.
