Product Description

Product Description

Take a walk down memory lane to the days when you played with your friends until dark¿ Imagine a place where you can play all those games, where the level of competition is matched only by the sheer amount of fun. Neighborhood Games is that place, offering 24 unique twists on those popular games. No need to worry about the rain ending your fun!

Amazon.com

Now you can go back in time to the neighborhood of your past, where the fun never ended, in Neighborhood Games. This exciting new title from THQ Games takes the Wii's successful sports genre a step further, letting you go back to a time when you played with your friends until dark and where the fun was matched only by the thrill of competition.

Fun Twists on Classic Games
In Neighborhood Games, players get to choose between 24 classics, from the majors like football, basketball and baseball, to backyard classics such as lawn darts, horseshoes and Bocce ball. With fine-tuned controls that are easy to pick up and play, family and friends of all ages and skill levels can jump right in and start having fun right away.

Loads of Lasting Entertainment
Don't just get your game on, get a great work out as you battle against backyard bosses to decide who rules the neighborhood in single-player tournament mode. Or you can go for bragging rights by challenging your family and friends in head-to-head action with up to four players. Just remember that the game doesn't stop when your not on the remote, because half the fun is in breaking up your opponents' concentration from the sidelines and watching them as they try to play.

Not only does Neighborhood Games give you all the great games you're used to playing outside, it includes other classic fun-in-the-sun activities like Slingshots and Squirt Guns, and RC Planes and Cars. And with classic Wii-style enjoyment, everybody will laugh along as players fully customize their characters to resemble themselves, or someone totally random. But unlike the Wii sports you might be used to, these characters follow you straight into the gameplay so you get to see your avatar run, jump, shoot and play. Best of all, in Neighborhood Games you don't ever have to worry about bad weather ruining your day.




Other games include RC car racing, HORSE, and beach bocce.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor gameplay March 17, 2009
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
We were very disappointed with this game. There are many options of games to choose from, but unfortunately almost all of them had the same basic underhand motion. Bocci, horseshoes, shuffleboard, basketball, etc... were all just the same repetitive movement. Also, it was difficult to refine your movements because there wasn't a meter bar or some way to measure how far off you are. We lost interest in this game very quickly and just went back to playing wii sports.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
We've played a lot of other game collections with our family on the Wii and this one is our favorite so far. A very enjoyable experience all around, while not every game was my favorite there were quite a few that everyone enjoyed playing together. The spin on classic games like Dart-Ball (baseball meets lawndarts), Super Battle Shoes (battle ship meets horseshoes) as well as familiar fun games like Ladder Golf, RC planes, RC trucks, Football, and Water Wars (squirt guns) is a nice touch. The controls are familiar if you've played Wii Sports games. We really liked the fact that all of the games were unlocked in multiplayer so we didn't have to play through single player to get our money's worth.

The single player is a simple progression through 15 of the 24 games at 3 difficulty levels. You unlock clothing items for your character as you progress through the game. The presentation is simple but endearing and you can quickly get through the computer controlled players turn if you want in most games. You can also taunt the computer controlled player to try and get them to miss. The taunts, particularly the bottom shake made our younger child laugh.

Overall the we had a great time playing these games together. If you play different games in a an evening with your friends it keeps track of how many wins and loses each player overall which is a nice touch.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really a waste February 18, 2009
By AF
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This was one of the games we bought to play as a family with our new Wii. It's ok at best. Really this is the sort of shovelware that plagues any game system. There are much, much better games that do this sort of thing. Wii Sports Resort wipes the floor with this thing.

Rent before you buy, if you really need to try it. The main issue is that the motion controls really make the game feel generic - every event sort of feels the same, and there's a lack of subtlety to the controls that makes it feel very canned, like you're not really influencing the action. Very disappointing.

Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought for grandchildren 3 and 6. They have another game simular to this one that they play all the time (Playground). So I bought this one but it is much harder for them to play and they do not like this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars An okay game. March 26, 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is an okay game. It's a good game to rent or if you can buy it for 20 dollars or less.

The game has a lot of games. You have to unlock a lot of them, and when you finally unlock them they are basically spinoff of the games you have like Lawn Darts, will then unlock water darts. Or basketball will unlock other versions of basketball. Also, the controls are all the same no matter what the game. Which can make the games kind of seem similatr after awhile.

That being said it's still fun, but I just feel like more could have been put into it.

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Menu:
Single player mode (15 games/5 unlocked), multiplayer (1-4p) & 24 games (including single player 15 games). Very, very limited on customization of your "kid" & all look uninspiring w/clothes/kids titled w/stereotypical types (goth, hippy, martial arts, grunge, surfer, etc.) All games have high scores & difficulty choice (easy, med & hard) & you can hit A to FFW anything including AI's turn.
controls:
all dart games, shuffleboard, basketball, bocce & horseshoes, all use the d-pad (or nunchuck stick) to aim & B/motion to throw. The controls are not broken, but sensitive, so soft lobbing is best, w/expectations of being very precise (even on easy mode) in speed & angle. It only notices wrist twisting if a lot. on basketball, I had to hit it purposely on the backboard the correct angle to finally get a basket.
presentation:
backgrounds - see screenshots on amazon or bigger ones at gamerpro almost Nintendo 64 graphics w/almost no textures so looks almost 2D though some just had textured water or concrete, though there would be a lot of stains on things. Some were depressing, like the abandoned empty lot w/junkyard in a poor neighborhood, complete w/car alarms going off, abandoned tires, stripped car, dog & leaking oil can resting at your "kid's" feet. if there are any cars that drive by (a lot of ambulances, why???), they would drive at most 10 mph. in dartball & slingshot, there is a glass shed to hit (why?) in dartball, there is also a constantly shadowy face w/bright blinking eyes in the open hole in the tree trunk that might seem a bit scary to a very young kid (no, you can't hit him), maybe it's Michael Jackson? (amazon has screenshot.)
camera/gameplay area - camera is always way too far & high so you feel detached from the gameplay & makes aiming harder.

3.0 out of 5 stars An OK family game March 23, 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
We bought this game when a merchant told us this was the sequal to playgorund games...it is not.

This game is fun, BUT nearly every game requires the same underhand motion. Horseshoes, shuffleboard, jarts, etc....
I liked the "idea" of having RC planes, but the planes are really difficult to control (OK impossible), and the graphics are sooooo small.

There are some cute features of this game; however, for the most part, this seems to be one of those games in the bargain bin.
