The other $50 Nintendo took from my wallet this weekend

Call me crazy, but these days the main purpose of my Wii has been to entertain while friends are over. No console is better equipped for this as just about anybody can pick up a Wii remote and figure out how to play, Nintendo designed it this way. So as I slowly cycle out my four Wii Remote + Wii Motion Plus Voltron-like contraption for Wii Remote Plus controllers, Wii Play: Motion seemed right up my alley.

So far my time with the game has been enjoyable. I knew going in more or less what I was getting, an updated version of Wii Play with three more mini-games than it’s predecessor. With the limited time I’ve had with the game, the mini-games seem to be pretty hit and miss much like Wii Play was. There are a few mini-games that stood out even from the first play such as Skip Skimmer which has you throwing rocks through rings to get points, and Spooky Search where the objective is to point your Wii Remote Plus all over the house trying to find the hiding ghost.

Wii Play Motion won’t be a game you’re going to get 40+ hours out of (unless you REALY enjoy the mini-games), but if have friends to entertain, or a ton of siblings to compete with, Wii Play Motion just may be for you.

Now only one more of these suckers left to purchase, I’ve got my eyes on you special edition Zelda controllor.

Anyone else pick this game up?
