The dodgeball game is wicked - definitely the best of the set. You will need a Nunchuk though. It plays without one, but the controls are much better if you have one handy. All in all, it's has a pretty good set of mini-games - the best ones are Dodgeball, Curling, and Volleyball.
Ok, you got your 12 sports & easy to understand menu system. The loading times aree pretty quick & you have the ability to hit A & skip EVERYTHING & ANYTHING you want such as the AI playing. The physics for mini games are well done, better then most, the instructions are detailed & easy to understand w/drawings & text. The scoring is very detailed to every aspect such as the world's best time, most jumps, most points, at the end of each game, etc. You also have a records area for the best for each aspect of each game for the best players. You get 10 celebrities (get quick text bio when selected) & 15 wannabes (silly costume characters), 9 of which are locked until you beat levels in the game. There are no different abilities for any of them nor are there any sound bites or any talking from any of the characters during the menu or in play. You have 9 "doors" for each character to go through in the solo tourney & each level has you go through 3 random games x 3 for supreme winner over all the other characters. When you win, you get a nighttime celebration (the only thing you can't skip, but it's sweet.) The tournament can also be played multiplayer. You can also play free play, in which you can choose the games either solo or multiplayer & choose the level of the AI: easy, normal or hard.
As another said, this can be played with just the wii remote, but since during play you will have directional changes, etc. it's much more playable & intuitive with the nunchuck.
Beach Volleyball - camera is far, but you always control BOTH characters at the same time. Can bump, set, spike & block spikes with wii swings & A button.
Inner-Tubing - tile wii mote to steer, lift up to jump, collect stars for points, jump over mines & pull down to slam on top of opponents to get their points.
Wild Water Canoeing - shake nunchck paddles one side, shake the wii mote the other (no nunchuck = shake & A & B buttons) go down center of waterfalls for bonus speed & avoid many rocks.
Hurdle Derby - wii tilt steer the horse, (2) to jump & shake up/down for speed.
Slalom Showdown - hold wii mote like joystick to steer, (B) to tuck/speed, miss gates = penalty time, go up ramps & lift wii mote to do tricks on them.
Cliff Hangers - move with nunchuck, but faster to flip wii mote to jump & (B) to grab wall, has mines, things that fall, water balloons.
Smash Badminton - like wii tennis, control both players at the same time.
Rapid Fire Archery - Hold (B) pull back & release launch at far away targets. Easy since you can see the aim as arcing line.
Joust Duel - like fencing w/nunchuck to move, (Z) to jump, (B) to block/parry & (A) as super hit when meter is up & shake to regain balance.
Curling - sensitive to how hard you swing, has also bombs to destroy your opponents puck as your puck, heavy ones & bumpers.
Arena Dodgeball - far away cam, but you move with nuchuck, swing to left/right when no ball to dodge fast, w/ball you wing to throw (it aims for you), (B) to duck or move remote to duck/roll even when have a ball. Also haas bomb balls & shield balls as well as walls that go up/down.
Air Racers - you fly a jet through narrow cannon using wii mote tilt, with mines, big blown colorful floating thins to avoid & fly through rings for speed. You get missles to fire in front of you with (B) & mines to drop behind you with (A) & so do your opponents so there's a lot of firing going on.
Inner-Tubing, Wild Water Canoeing, Hurdle Derby, Slalom Showdown, Cliff Hangers & Air Racers have 3 different courses each.
This game isn't perfect, but it's one of the better ones, you can tell they put real time & effort in this with the menu choices & the choice of how to use the controls (very intuitive) as well as add arcade things to add to the challenge & avoid dullness.
