Different Take on Familiar Classics

1. Shooters : A Duck Hunt like Target Practice
2. Find Mii : A memory style game
3. Ping-Pong : Table Tennis
4. Bubbles : A fast paced "catch" game
5. Laser Hockey : Air Hockey
6. Billiards : 9-Ball
7. Fishing : "as stated"
8. Bull-Riding : Driving style knockdown game
9. Tanks : Remake of an old classic
Games 1,5,6,8, and 9 are actually ones I would recommend coming back to and playing again with other people. As for single player, the Medals awarded in this game are easy enough to come by, although you may hate having to actually play some of the games to earn them. Unlike Wii Sports not all the games come unlocked, a quick play-through (on single or multi-player) will free them, as well as give you a sampling of the games. I'd recommend renting the game at the very least for the Tanks and Billiards. However, if your planning on buying (like myself) I'd say its a good thing they packaged it with a controller as added incentive.
Great Value w/Wii Remote

On to the game... The games themselves are all pretty simple. They are all designed to help you learn how to use the remote more effectively. There are a few fun games, such as shooting range, billiards, laser hockey, and tanks. There is also a game called Charge! where you are riding a bull knocking down scarecrows. The problem is that all the games lack depth. They consist of basically one level, and it is one short level. You will be done playing in a minute or two on each of the games.
You can earn medals on each game... Bronze, Silver, and Gold. I'm not sure what happens when you get all gold, I haven't earned all gold yet. I think the rating system on Wii Sports was better, earning points to earn and maintain a pro rating.
All things considered, I give this game a pretty descent rating because it is a great value at $10. If you already have all the remotes you care to have, don't bother buying this one.
Great way to learn how to use the Wiimote!

I enjoyed the games... there have been enough specific reviews here so I won't go into all that. But I will say this...
Though experienced gamers may find themselves bored after going through each one a couple of times, these games are PERFECT for young kids or really anyone new to the Wii system. The purpose of these games is to teach you how to use the Wiimote.
My 5 year old girl was having some issues with learning how to use the controls with other games. She is great at Bowling, but when it came time to use the Wiimote SUBTLY in other games, she had a hard time. But after just a few times playing the Wii Play games, her skills have improved DRAMATICALLY! My 8 year old boy enjoyed the games (especially the shooting game) and it has helped him refine his skills.
I highly recommend this game to new Wii owners or to parents who have young kids just learning how to play the Wii.
For experienced gamers, you may want to skip this... or add it to your library for your friends to play the first time they come over to play the Wii with you.

There are nine "mini-games" total. Most of which are pretty short, and little depth. These games are fun, and are a great use of the Wii-mote.
The Good :
Great use of Wii-mote
Pretty decent to play with a friend
Nine games in total to play
The Bad :
Not nearly enough to do, even with multiplayer
Some games could have easily had more modes
This game is worth picking up in the store for the extra Wii-mote, but I would not recommend renting it here on gamefly. It gets old after a day tops, even with multiplayer aspects in it.

Very dull for a Wii game.
Shooting cans, the fishing was a joke, and then there was the cow or
The game is Not made for children, too many guns and tanks.
It could be if you took those two things out.
This from a concerned mom. Thanks!
Great for kids
