The price should be some indication that this isn't the most in-depth of sports games. In fact, most of the time you're just waving the controller, although sometimes you can guide a character using the directional pad. For what it is, it does play well, the graphics aren't brilliant, but your movements are at least replicated on screen. Obviously this isn't going to be anywhere near as good as Wii Sports, but it's certainly better than Carnival Games and with better graphics and more sports it could have given Mario Olympics a run for its money.
I really regretting buying a wii with all the garbage the games companies think they can throw onto it. This game is disgraceful, ugly blurry graphics, boring games with terrible motion controls. I only rented it thank god! Played each game once, then sent it straight back. Companies seem to think that because Wii is the casual gamers choice for the whole family then they will buy anything because all you do is wave your arms about, it's not good enough. Stop buying crap like this and maybe they will get the message!
