I've noticed that when it comes to packaged together Wii stuff, occasionally the Game+Control combo packs are exactly the same price as a control alone (occasionally cheaper), or in this case a small amount more. I needed a second Wii Remote Plus to go with the red one that came with my Wii. I figured I could gamble an extra $10 to try this game out.
So far I'm pleased.
This game is sort of a puzzle game - even though so far I haven't actually found any real puzzles to solve - but action enough to not be one. I have a feeling this game is going to be a hit with my casual gaming family and friends. I haven't played it in two player mode yet, but I expect it to work out quite well and I expect the above mentioned people to love it. I'll report back if I find out otherwise.
Both left and right hand modes are selectable, I don't know how that will work with a righty and lefty trying to play together, but I assume one is going to have to bite the bullet and hold the Wii Remote in the wrong hand.
Verdict - yes it was worth the extra $10 on top of the Wii Remote Plus. It's better to think of this as "Wii Remote Plus with Bonus Fling Smash" than it is to think of it as "Fling Smash with bonus Wii Remote Plus" as it's sold. Base your purchase decision on the price of the remote not the game itself unless you've already played the game.
If you don't need the extra Wii Remote Plus I really can't recommend spending this amount of money for the game alone unless these types of games are your thing. The game itself feels like a really well done mobile phone game adapted to the big screen.Read more ›
---WII REMOTE PLUS---
The Wii Remote Plus comes with a silicone jacket, and everything looks like the previous black Wii remote model did, except for the fact that the MotionPlus is built in and the words "Wii MotionPlus INSIDE" are stamped on the bottom front. The back is still a soft, non-glossy surface, whilst the front is a fingerprint-magnet gloss. Also, I'm not sure if it's just my specific controller or black models in general, but the buttons are more clicky, which I like. I checked the buttons on the white and red Wii Remote Plus, but found they were the same as previous models.
On to the game.
The game comes more than just a puzzle. Trying to add a story, your characters pretty much have to collect items in order to progress, and the premise lies in saving an island from an evil power.
I had been quietly looking forward to this since seeing pre-release demos and exuberant first impressions from online gaming sites. If this had been a game alone I probably wouldn't have ordered it. Anyway, my nine-year-old sister had played it first and found it to be very fun; since I knew some reviewers complained about control issues, I asked her if the controls were hard. "Yeah, they're a little hard," she replied.Read more ›
That being said...if you gamble, sooner or later, you'll lose. Nintendo took a gamble that Artoon (developer of Yoshi's Island DS) could make a game to showcase the Remote Plus' abilities. I took a gamble that the game would be the hit that IGN said it would be. We both lost. Flingsmash simply does not work as intended, and could very well be the most disappointing purchase I've made for the Wii yet. The fact that Nintendo packaged this turd with it's Remote Plus makes me disappointed with them for not pushing themselves and Artoon harder to create a better gaming experience.
The premise is simple: you use the Remote Plus to smack the "hero" into boulders, prizes and enemies across a pre-determined course, trying to keep the character moving, as a 3 headed "Hydracoil" (dragon) is behind you. Collect 3 special coins scattered about the board, which transform into a pearl when you reach the end. Collect enough pearls and you face the "Boss" at the end of each stage and advance. As you progress, new action items appear such as cannons, spinners, tunnels...etc, and while it all sounds like a great amount of fun, it should be noted that the character seldom goes exactly where you want to smack him. This is not because I am "holding the controller wrong", or based on skill.Read more ›

I initially purchased this because it was the same price as just buying a remote. I was pleasantly surprised that the kids enjoyed the game as well.Published 7 months ago by Lu
Remote works great. I bought the other cheap ones but this is truly "you get what you pay for" items. I would have saved money buying this in the beginning.Published 11 months ago by L. A. Coley
Didn't come with a wii remote despite it saying that it was new. Box was opened and the controller was missing. Sent it back almost immediately after it arrived.Published 14 months ago by Meredith Wilkinson
