    We Ski offers an absurd amount of events, objectives, and extras -- and it's all icing on the mountain, as this would be a great game without most of it. The comfortable motion controls ensure that even a simple, leisurely ski around the resort is usually a joy.

    Take it for what it is meant to be, and this is a game where all the family can experience a light Mii-infested slice of alpine skiing heaven.

    It doesn't reinvent the winter sports genre but it does understand the limits of the board and knows how to be charming with them. A really pleasant surprise. [June 2008, p.48]

    An average skiing game. Wii Balance Board controls are too sensitive to be fun in a whole family game sessions. [Aug 2008]

    Not worth the board for, but a bit of diverting fun for those tired of "Wii Fit." [Aug 2008, p.79]

    If you enjoy the typical waggle-sports found on the console Wii Ski will likely please you, if you are still not a believer in motion control there is little here to advance the medium, just a lot of mindless fun to be had.

    I really enjoy playing this with my kids. The motion control with the wiimote/nunchuk is excellent - I kinda catch myself feeling likeI 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 areasIt 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.
