For teens and older, I think this game will get tedious pretty fast. However, I was looking for a good Wii game with simple controls (single controller) to play with my younger children. "Playground" makes an excellent addition to our Wii library of games and both the single-player and multi-player modes will get a good workout from us. This one is actually simpler than Carnival Games which I also recommend as a "kid friendly" game.

Basically, you wander around the playground collecting marbles and challenge other children to various games to earn stickers to place in your sticker book. Many smaller kids will find this feature quite appealing. My favorite games so far are the slot cars, paper airplanes, and dodgeball. All are simple enough (at least at the beginning) for most children to play. For example, tetherball is exceptionally simple at the outset. As you gain experience and skills, you will unlock more advanced versions of the games and new games as well. The game increases in difficulty as you progress.

As with most Wii games, don't expect stellar graphics quality. The Wii is aimed towards gameplay rather than graphics and this is another good implementation of the mini-game format for which the Wii is famous. One thing that does annoy me with the game is that although the text is in English, the children speak in Japanese. It's kind of cute, but for the price, I'd hope they'd have taken the time to re-dub the audio portions.

Overall, I think my children will find this enjoyable and challenging. This is a wholesome videogame that I can recommend without qualms.

The four of us in our family have been playing this game for about a month and we have a great time with it. I can see how this game wouldn't be so much fun to play by yourself, but it's super fun to play against other people. I highly recommend this game if you are looking for something the whole family can play.

The common Wii game problem is the lack of content. Playground has 8-9 mini games, but they are almost identical. Only really different and enjoyable game was the paintball shooting. Comparing the 8-9 game difficulty level, it's about as complex as 1 mini game in Rayman.

So considering Rayman gives you 50 or so hilarious mini games, and playground offers 8 very similar mini games, this is really not a great buy. Rental game for party, but not a keeper.

Like th 3 star rating, nothing is superb in the game, but nothing is bad. It's just bland. $40 could be better spend on something else.

Playground has it's fun moments. It has an addicting quality to it's minigames as well. I liked it's layout of the playground and the total game dynamics, but I grew tired of most of the games after a couple days.

Dodgeball, which could have been the selling point of this game, seemed to lack a lot of gameplay. The games just went to quickly and seemed lackluster. Games often took less than thirty seconds, and you never really got going in a game to make it feel like you were really playing.

Wall ball was much the same way, quick games left me wanting more. In fact most of the games were this way.

Kicks was an interesting twist on Volleyball / Soccer, and was probably the deepest game on the disc.

Most of the games included special moves, which you bought with your marbles that you win from defeating your playground opponents.

I kind of wanted to finish collecting everything, but with no achievement system, I didn't find myself wanting to fight through the eventual boredom of the single player mode.

It's worth renting once, but I cannot recommend a buy for this game.

My 7yrs old and 5yrs boys love this game. I can understand why people say "maybe not for older kids" but for kids under 10 its great. Its not too challenging but challenging enough to where they can play. I recommend it highly

This game is suitable for the entire family. However, it's the 3 year old that likes it the best. We mainly play as a family - and it does hold everyone's interest fairly well.

Pros:
lots of different activities
slot car racing - multiple prizes/attacks, great game
nerf game - my personal favorite, too hard for 3 year old (aiming issues)
games very short (e.g. paper airplanes) so can play many rounds
Up to 4 players simultaneously

Cons:
Does not use miis
dodgeball and tetherball not so great (hard to control)
No staying power - definately does not get played as much as Mario Party
Does not encourage kids to get up and move around

The controls for this game are simple enough that my 3 year old can play most games on his own. I found the multiplayer worked great as a party game. We had some friends over and got almost everyone up and involved. Not recommended for older kids, but my 3 and 5 year olds love it.

What I like about this game is that you earn new character skills and not simply outfits. The series of Playground games are a lot of fun. I bought it for the dodgeball but all of them are great. Tetherball, though sounds pretty simple, seems to be one of the
hardest games, at least for me. Graphics are great and the game gets progressively harder. Lot of fun and endless enjoyment. Highly recommend it for the whole family.
