I got the Wii sports because my kids love the bowling. However, I have feel in love with this game. There is a fitness mode where you can go everyday and do certain games to find out your fitness age. I love this feature because I get to see my own progress in how well I am doing with the games. It is just a blast. The whole family can play or you can play by yourself. I have always loved baseball and bowling but never been a fan of other sports. I love all of the games and the training games on this game. I definitely recommend it to everyone. Plus it helps you if you are new to Wii to learn your Wii remote.
I got this with my Wii, as most did, and really glad I did. Awesome game, I love the tennis and bowling best. It's got three key sections, all very enjoyable: the sports campaigns (tennis, baseball, bowling, golf, and boxing), training, and wii fit age.
Each sports campaign is very well put together, for the tennis the wiimote is your racket, for the baseball the wiimote is your bat/the ball when pitching (no running on the baseball portion, but that's the only part removed from the regular game), for bowling the wiimote is your ball, for golf the club, for boxing your fists (nunchuck required for that one). All of these add or subtract points towards 1000 based on your performance, and all controls seem very tight-nit with your movements, except the boxing, that one seemed a little off with the swings, but that could just be me.
The training is enjoyable as well, you get bronze, silver, and gold medals based on your performance in each field with each sport having three different training activities; the baseball and bowling ones are the best ones in my opinion.
Lastly the Wii fit age, this is a test of three randomly selected exercises which will determine your fitness age ranging from 20 to 80 (20 being best) and it shows your progress from day to day. The only flaw I saw in this is the fact that it only allows you to attempt it once a day and then locks you out of it till the next day, but that's only for the fitage thing, nothing else. All in all a very good game.
