    Many times during the putt-putt golf there are many problem areas in that downgrade this attempt at adult enjoyment.
    1.Many screen freezes occur on various holes.
    2. Many times your ball is replaced in a different spot than you saw when it stopped in the previous putt.
    3.Not nearly as good as the Wii Sports that came free with the original Wii game.

    A lot of fun! But why does it force you to play with 4 players? It forces you to wait thru 3 CPU players with no fast forward. Def. a party game. But still so addictive. Volleyball , Lawn Darts, and Basketball, is soooo much fun. Could use a Practice Mode. Give this game at least a Rent!

    Not bad, but not great either. While the games are fun and almost all of them work as intended it's got issues that hold it back from being a must have mini-game collection. If you have other people to play it with, preferably four, it's fun but not a game you want to play by yourself. The AI is prone to bugging out, it's got several glitches, and the basketball game doesn't work at all.Not bad, but not great either.

But even with these flaws I had fun playing this with others, and even though it's not perfect it's still surprisingly fun. Expand

    Summer Sports is boring at best and aggravating at worst. [May 2008, p.89]
  2. If you loved "Wii Sports" (and I mean REALLY loved it,) don’t mind terrible motion controls, and have two or three friends willing to play a few sub-par mini-games, then Summer Sports: Paradise Island may be worth a rental. For most Wii owners, though, it stands as just another in a string of third-party disappointment.
  3. A passable Wii sporting title that brings a few backyard favorites to your living room. Unfortunately, the imprecise controls don't let the game achieve its full potential. Consequently, the title is nothing more than a bit more fodder for Sony and Microsoft fanboys to point their fingers and laugh at.
