Great game 10/10, definitely recommend playing in 2 player. Very addictive and fun. The world is colorful and vibrant and the bosses are well thought-out and well-designed. The game is very fun, although a very short game overall. The final boss is a slight upward change in difficulty though, >> slight spoilers >> warning >> as the boss has many stages. 10/10 game though, created many memories and is a very fun game. Graphics are definitely well designed and not a bug in sight. The controls are *slightly* unpredictable but this is outbalanced by all the great aspects of this game. 3 of the worlds have special gimmicks which can be annoying but a lot of the gameplay is simple and fun. You fling, and you smash. As many games have shown, the more simple the concept is, the more addictive it is. Obviously critics see this game as filled with flaws, but the way I see it, it's perfect.
FlingSmash is a refreshing game, but its innovating gameplay isn't really deep enough. It still works quite well though, but here's the second flaw : it's really short (4 hours) and repetitive (especially when playing coop). You can always come back to it for scoring purposes, or enjoy some not-so-inspired mini-games.
FlingSmash is full of interesting gameplay ideas that would've been a lot more fun if the game controlled well, or at the very least, compensated for the poor controls by being a little more forgiving.
FlingSmash, to me, is a 10/10 game. The world is lively and vivid, with fun character designs. The controls are fluid due to the Wii MotionPlus's capabilities. The game has an original gameplay style that goes hand-in-hand with the Wii's gimmick of motion controls. Don't know why it's not as highly regarded by the critics.
It's OK I guess. It's very niche and obscure, and its primary purpose is showcasing the Motion Plus.
It's fun for a few minutes but I moved on and didn't rediscover it until 10 years later. I don't even know who the final boss of this game is;)
FlingSmash is good for some mindless, co-op fun for a while, but there are plenty of other games out there for that too. But if you want something that uses the wii mote that nearly anyone can play, it's worth at least a lazy afternoon. It's not really that FlingSmash isn't good or that isn't bad, just that it doesn't get interesting after the surface level of playing it, so really there is little reason to revisit.
If you bought this game when it was new for the black Wii Remote Plus controller bundle, that was the right choice because this game is horrible. Even though the game requires the Wii Motion Plus accessory or a Wii Remote Plus controller to play the game, I didn't see any difference in the motion controls. FlingSmash all in all is very disappointing and I say you should totally skip it and screw you MJR for calling this game a "hidden gem".
