If you haven’t put your head in the sand in recent months, you may have heard that Nintendo is doing things a little differently these days. They are not part of the “next generation” of games and would prefer to see the Wii as a “new generation” of games. If the Wii is about anything, it expands the gaming market, bringing in different people and making more money as a result.


Each game can be played alone or with another player and uses only the remote control, reducing the Gameplay to the deepest simplicity. It doesn’t matter if the Player is five or eighty years old, because everyone can play these games.

First on the List is the striking area, which plays exactly as it sounds and is very reminiscent of small arms games like duck hunting. When you point the remote control at the screen, you hit a variety of targets to earn points and you will be rewarded with a medal depending on the number of points you earn. Like many Wii games, playing against someone is much more fun, but there is no real depth and even absolute beginners get tired of it quite quickly.

A little more difficult is Find Mii, the game equivalent of “Where is Wally?’. Here, Nintendo uses the MII character system to generate a variety of challenges that require you to choose the odd or even ones or your own Mii from an ever-growing number of other Mii. You play against the clock, which starts more than thirty seconds, and each time you succeed, a few more seconds are added to allow you to continue. Once the time has elapsed, the game is over and you will receive a score based on the number of rounds you have passed.


The third game in the compilation is table tennis, but surely this one should be called Pong? The similarities are there, but it’s subtly different, because unlike his venerable ancestor, the goal of the game is to keep the ball in play rather than pass it in front of his opponent. Simply move the remote control to the left or right to move your paddle to the ball that will be automatically returned. For a while it may turn out to be a little addictive, in a kind of “don’t drop the ball”, but again, the lack of depth manifests itself very quickly. We wonder why there couldn’t be more than one mode in this game that allows a points game against the AI or a friend.

Mii Pose has to be one of the strangest concepts in the Wii game, but not quite the strangest. In this game, you have to compare the Pose of your Mii with the Pose depicted in the falling bubbles. There are three poses in total that you switch by pressing A and B on the remote control. This game actually does a better job than most demos of the remote control functions, so you have to turn and turn to get the right angle that matches the Pose. As the pace accelerates, it can get quite complicated, but it’s also a lot of fun.


Laser hockey, derived from the old favorite air hockey at the Fairgrounds, is another game that works great simply because Air Hockey is a really fun game in real life. It also makes good use of the remote control, allowing players to apply an angle to their shots. It is very fast, sometimes manic and very fun when played against a friend or family member.

However, the real game that stands out is Billiards, which actually has a certain depth and shows that Pool/billiards games could determine that the Wii is a perfect Format. The basic controls require you to go back and then press with the remote control as you would in real life. You can also adjust the direction and rotate by changing the place where you press the white ball. The physics are simple but quite realistic, and there is a real sense of accomplishment when you manage to drop the white ball wherever you want. If anything is wasted on the Wii Play compilation and could have been better as part of the Wii Sport pack.
