Wii Play is similar to Wii Sports and is a collection of 1 or 2 player games. It has cartoonish graphics that won't win any contest but they do give the minigames a care-free and funny feeling.

The music is comical but has alot of flare and is reminiscent of older 16-bit soundtracks. Wii Play is centered on the games instead of stunning graphics or deep voice acting.

The total of 9 games include:
  1. Table Tennis - The is basically a fancy game of Pong, rallying back and forth by moving the Wii remote. The Mii characters are supported, and are represented by the audience. As the game progresses, the audience grows larger and the ball moves faster and faster.
  2. Laser Hockey - Played like air hockey, this is a two-player game where the players move the Wii remote to deflect shots and try to score in the opponents goal. Twisting the paddle aims the ball. According to developers, the physics engine used to calculate the velocity and position of the shots is extremely advanced, but can sometimes get frustrating when the puck gets trapped along the side.
  3. Charge! - The player takes a bull (or cow) by the horns, and steers it by holding the Wii Remote sideways, as if gripping reins, and topples scarecrows to score points within a time limit.
  4. Tanks - My favorite game! The player controls a tank with the Wii Remote, aims the cannon, bounces shells off walls, and blasts opponents in a block-like world. As the player progresses, the stages get harder with new tanks and tighter spaces.
  5. Fishing
  6. Matching
  7. Billards (pool)
  8. A shooting gallery
  9. A "Find Mii" game in which the player tries to mind the charactors that is described it starts.

      Pros: comes with a Wii controller
      Cons: for the most part, a collection of disposable games with clunky mechanics
      Given that it comes with a Wii controller, everyone is likely to buy the title anyway and the shooter, mii recognition and air hockey games are all pleasant bite-sized diversions. Unfortunately there's no long-term play value, variation or challenge to any of the offerings. These are bare-bones minigames of the laziest sort...

      Pros: You get a controler
      Cons: Too long of a list of cons
      [COLOR="MediumTurquoise"]I will admit they had a good idea but the lack of tech use in making the thing was wack.
      If you have a Wii (why I don't know) put dont that waist of space and go out side and work out for real. And just for the rec. all you have to do is flick your wrist, If you still wont go outside at least go and find eye toy from sony at least you have to move your body not a controler.[/COLOR]
