When Wii Play came out in 2007, it was packaged with a Wiimote for the price of $50. At that time, the demand for that Wiimote was very high, so many players bought the game – and enjoyed some of the nine mini games that came in the compilation. Now the sequel comes out and the players get 12 mini games instead of 9. When the first time players get into the game, only 4 mini games are available; to unlock the next four, you have to play each of the first four. To unlock the last four mini games, you play the second set. The games are a mixed bag; some mini games provide simple fun for almost everyone. Mini games like Veggie Guardin’ (which is a nice twist on the Whack a Mole game), Trigger Twist (a shooting gallery with three different settings), and Flutter Fly (where you wave a fan in order to move your character through an obstacle course.) Some other mini games – not as much fun; like Cone Zone (where you try to keep a huge stack of ice cream cones from falling over), Skip Skimmer (whose controls are sketchy at best) and Spooky Search (finding ghosts via the beeps the Wiimote makes can get hard). And there’s the mini game I had no fun with – Star Shuttle (where you guide your Mii – well, somewhere.) Yet overall there’s a lot of fun to have with this compilation, and if you buy it you will get a Wiimote with the game. But I say you should rent it first before paying up for Wii Play: Motion.
