I bought this because of the multi-game short game fun that me and my girlfriend can enjoy together.. We love Big Brain Academy and we love Wario Smooth Moves.

Carnival has 1-2 games of any fun at all and then, only minimally. They tried to recapture the motions of the carni games, but, they just dont translate to the wii-mote. Sigh. Im gonna call it RSI games and probably never boot it again.

So, I ask -- how does it have 42 ratings and 4 stars? I assume the entire crew that worked on the creation of the game. Alternatively -- what am I missing?

Yeah, I keep thinking this over and over. I'm a gamer though so I just figure that a lot of these people absolutely RAVING over this haven't ever had any real experience playing games that weren't thrown together in a rush.

And, like I hinted at in my review, apparently none of these people are left-handed... or perhaps they haven't figured out that the left-hander motion for EVERYTHING in this game doesn't map to the wiimote at all and think they're just doing it wrong or else it's "good and challenging" perhaps? I've got nothing here to go on besides that.

Check out Nintendo Channel, the average owner puts 5 hours of play into this game.

Now consider the average Wii Sports owner puts in 37 hours of play.

The average Super Smash Bros. Brawl owners puts in 56 hours of time.

See the problem? Even people who say they love Carnival Games rarely play it.

If you haven't reviewed this game yet, do it NOW to warn others.
