    The collection of games are all pretty varied, and tie in well with each resort.

    A really enjoyable game, with direct, simple yet universal fun for everyone, which increases with the number of players. There have been a lot of games like this on the Wii, but this Namco Bandai one is one of the best.

    Loads of solid mini-games. [Christmas 2011, p.94]

    For families looking to have a good time with their Wii's this winter, I highly recommend taking a trip to Kawawii Island with Go Vacation. It may is not the best sounding or the prettiest game out there but Go Vacation packs in a wealth of fun for every member of the family.

    I'm always on the lookout for family-oriented games I can recommend to my sister and her husband and son, and I would recommend Go Vacation in a heartbeat-it's a title that utilizes every first-party peripheral a family might have gathered, the games are easy enough for younger children (with assistance) while still being entertaining for adults, and each Resort is vibrant and colorful, with lots of nooks, crannies and genuinely beautiful spots that made me wish I had a "take a screenshot option" for anywhere in the game.

    If you're looking for a great multiplayer game to play with friends and family, Go Vacation is an extremely solid choice. The developer made a few strange choices that hurt the experience, but overall Go Vacation is a trip worth taking.
  7. A quality collection of mini-games that should appeal more to single-player fans.

While some of the mini-games are less than perfect, that does not matter: if you have (medium) small children they will love this, and they can quickly play without any need for supervision. My kids have played this more than all our other Wii games put together. Full Review »
