Game play is good, using the remote and nunchuk is a little awkward, the wire keeps getting in the way, though it gives me more incentive to try out one of those wireless setups for the game. It might just be my wiimote and nun, though sometimes the nun would be unresponsive during the play, unplugging and replugging it would make it work again.
There's so much to explore in this game, hidden rails and secret spots! You can enjoy the mountain trails or resort trails, there's even a great spot in the resort called Kangaroo that has tons of rails, jumps and even a halfpipe to enjoy, I've been spending a lot of time in that area, it's a fun area!
I do think they could have improved the controls on the wiimote, for some reason it seems a little slow to react to what you want it to do. some tricks are harder to pull off then others and learning the combo's of tricks can be a pain, spend lots of time in the school until you get them pounded into your head and you'll do great on the slopes!
You get 'points' for every heli ride, gondola ride, lift ride, times you fall, times you hit someone, it tracks your speed, you can keep track of almost everything within the game. There's a competition area where you can try your luck at beating other boarders, the first few are pretty easy, after that they get harder! You'll need lots of practice to beat some of them.
Fun part of the mountain is you can cause avalanches and try to out run them! Hopefully you don't fall while trying to keep ahead of it! hehehehe
I haven't tried the Skiing part yet, as I like snowboard so much more, so I can't really say much on that, though I'm sure it's just as much fun for someone who likes to ski.
All in all, a great game, just what I've wanted for my Wii fit board! This one goes on the list of must buy!

the game has average graphics but what really makes it stand out is the support for the balance board the controls being easy to get a hang of. this is one game that needs to be played with the balance board which lets you get immersed in game play. Also the incorporation of the mi's and all the fun mini games make this tittle very fun and gives it re playability.
it definitely a game to have in your library if you have the balance board or like games with some freestyle fun

Good rental for a couple of days.
"Snowboard" doesn't add enough

Well, they did just that with We Ski and Snowboard, and I'm not sure where that improvement is.
True, skiing and snowboarding down the mountain is a lot of fun, and there's the same speed, mogul and gate racing as in the original, but there's nothing here that I haven't seen in We Ski.
In Enjoy the Resort mode, you ski or snowboard around a mountain. You also meet up with several people at the bottom of the mountain.
Some of them have tasks for you to perform. From delivering food to picking things up to stopping within a circle. Each task has ten stages in it.
Problem is, once I finished Stage One of particular task, I had no inclination to move on to Stage Two - no matter what the task was.
Even after finishing all ten stages of a task, I felt the reward was flat an uninspired.
You can also compete against the AI in Competition Mode, but this is exactly the same as We Ski.
A saving grace is that you can do all these modes using multiplayer. It's always more fun to have other players (up to four) to tag along on the ski trip.
But the presentation of We Ski leaves a lot to be desired. RENT IT.
Fixes many issues with We Ski
