  1. Just as a Nintendo 64 without "Super Mario 64" was unthinkable, so too is a Wii without Wii Sports. It’s one of the most perfect launch games we’ve seen.
  2. In terms of control and immersion, Wii Sports destroys the competition and provides an excellent foundation for other developers to build upon.
  3. The ideal way to get into Wii gaming. It's funny, simple and approachable, and gamers and non-gamers alike should get something out of it. [Christmas 2006, p.62]
  4. Wii Sports is the perfect pack-in for the Wii since it really shows off the system’s unique capabilities and manages to draw in casual gamers who would otherwise not want to play videogames.
  5. The game does a great job of showing off what the system is about and showcasing the system’s abilities.

    "Wii Sports" is decent at it's best. All of the sports might help you to understand basic knowledge of sports such as tennis or basketball, but that's how far this game can take you. Full Review »
