  1. The Wii Fit Balance Board is of little help, and only serves to complicate things further.
  2. What looks like an open world, is in fact a closed snowfield that only gives you the illusion of freedom.

    I really enjoy playing this with my kids. The motion control with the wiimote/nunchuk is excellent - I kinda catch myself feeling like I'm skiing sometimes. The only downside is that there's only one mountain to ski on - would enjoy more varied venues. And Bandai missed a great opportunity to get creative with wierd/fantastical/out-of-this-world ski areas. Imagine Mario Kart on skis! It's still a lot of fun, and worth the low cost. Full Review »

    It really is a blast, and feels very much like the real thing (even without the balance board). I wish we could download some other ski areas (even real ones!) for variety's sake. It rewards only the fastest, most reckless skiing, which can easily be transferred to the real slopes and cause serious accidents. What it calls "slolom" is at the opposite end of the alpine racing spectrum - it's pure Downhill, Franz Klammer style, far too few turns. All this said, I'm enjoying it immensely. Full Review »

    I think the professional reviewers have underestimated this game. I've been playing it since 5/21 on the balance board and I find it very enjoyable. One of the better games I have for the wii. Full Review »
