Menu:
Very simple menu system. Music in menu is great circus/carnival style mostly, games are also same style, but some are very slow & depressing which kills fun.
No name for profile, only choose one of few animals cartoon photos. Easy, med & hard difficulties. I played this on easy to test first. Long loading times before/after games considering limited graphics. Too basic instructions are given during loading times, have to figure out more in game though least loading time least shows it. No restart after game. All games have timers, but no scoring before or after in main adventure mode to unlock games. Just audience "clap-o-meter" that shows up on/off & yay & boos occasionally, but not enough to know 1st time if doing it right. I noticed some issues w/programming. There is some effort put into this game, but it's mostly sloppy/lazy.
Storyline - simple, very short & uses 3D photos which is very lazy. Father, mother & son go to circus, tickets get lost in wind, son runs away after it, hears scheme from bad guy to get land from government that is suppose to only be used for circus to be turned into a uniform factory, by making circus boring & unprofitable, ringmaster helps. *roll eyes*
1st Tent:
Ape - point w/remote IR & B to shoot blimps & planes, Z & shake nunchuck to reload so ape can raise tent as he climbs pole. Hard to reload & only get 3 shots at a time.
Clown Tight walk - balance wii mote left/right as birds land on pole he's holding, balancing makes him walk fwd. balance seemed too easy.
Knife throwing at assistant on revolving wheel - throw knives at it & don't hit her, bonus points for hitting balloons on it. Same controls as Ape plus shake nunchuck to throw.
Tiger in cage - tiger, monkeys, hippos & green animal? In 8 diff cages that open/close.

Most of the games require the same movements with a combination of remote and nunchuk. Most of the games are boring after one try. The Dark ride shooting game almost makes it worth buying the whole game. if you can find it on sale, it might be worth a bit of fun. Go for Wii Carnival instead.

I was looking for a non-sports game that would be fun for the whole family. While the games aren't bad, the time it takes to load each time is painfully slow. If I knew then what I know now, I would not have purchased this game.

I am so drained of energy from enduring this game that this review will be brief.

There is simply no excuse for game design like this.

I have games from the late 90s with significantly better graphics.

One has to wait as much as 30 seconds for menus to load up between EVERY SINGLE STAGE of game-play, including simply re-starting one of the ridiculously short games (after having my son told repeatedly "YOU LOSE!" Nice touch, that). This requires you to WAIT for the main menu to load up, then WAIT for your game to load up, then WADE through the cryptically graphical, totally uninformative instructions...a total of about 1.5 minutes of waiting to have another go at a lame, two-minute game (which, once started, you cannot exit, but have to either play or wait out). Life is too short.

The cursor is VERY twitchy and not at all configurable. Even with my quite decent fine-motor skills, it took frustrating effort to draw and keep a bead on any of the items I was supposed to shoot, grab, etc. Even selecting the endless succession of "NEXT" arrows was difficult. On those games in which you have to hold aim with the Wiimote and swing, shoot, re-load, etc with the nun-chuck (i.e., pretty much *every* fracking game) it took absurd amounts of effort to keep the cursor centered.

This is a game which my 4.5 year-old son repeatedly described as "really lame." Indeed. And I suspect that, with a week-end course in game design, he could almost certainly produce a better one.

Serioulsy: Spare yourself.

this games is slow and is not alot of fun out the 20 games on the disk maybe 3 are really fun. It is very slow to load and after each game it has to load again. Not alot of fun for the money.

I purchased this game, and was so sorry I did. I found it a pain to have to use both the wii controller and the nunchuck at the same time. Games were not enjoyable to me at all.

I bought this thinking it would be great for my son. Thankfully I test things out before I actually sit down and try to teach him. He is 6, and Mildly Autistic so some games are harder for him than others. But I am a fully functioning, fairly intelligent adult. And I found this game to be frustrating. Sure it has plenty of games to choose from, but most take so many extra steps to complete the task. Like the game where you hit the bell to make it go up and ring. You have to swing one arm around your head so many times, until it registers basically, then hit. Just not a family friendly game in my opinion. Don't buy this, its not a cheap version of the Carnival games. Its a pitiful knockoff.
