5 Hysterical fun for young and oldLandfrog | 03/05/2007 | See all Landfrog's reviews (19)I was a bit apprehensive about buying this one. The Gamecube version was fun for a while, but didn't take too long until it was gathering dust on a shelf. The Wii control system, however, has given this game a whole new lease on life.To begin with you have the story mode - if you can call it a story. At certain points I was wondering just what the developers were smoking at the time, but my 7 year old son and I found many of the quick-fire microgames laugh-out-loud. You're quickly told in a very amusing, but mystic kind of way how to hold the controller then off you go. Five seconds to scrub that cow's backside, pluck that unsavoury green lump out of the hairy nostril or waft away the stench coming from Wario's trousers...Once you have the story mode complete - which shouldn't take too long - the game comes into it's own with the multiplayer games. Forget the wrist strap, you'll literally be throwing the Wii controller at each other in a frenzy! Playing one multi-player game opens up another, meaning the game will offer a lot more variety than the original Gamecube version and won't find itself so quickly on that shelf.There are also a number of single-player games unlocked in the story mode which will keep you amused for a while. Bouncing a ball as far as you can up through an obstacle-filled tower is a lot more addictive than it sounds! But I have to say, my personal favourite is one of the later 'Boss' stages in the story mode. Grab that Wiimote and copy the on-screen dancers performing moves that would put Travolta to shame. This could possibly make a game in it's own right - though you'd better shut those curtains unless you want some weird looks from the neighbours.Overall, great family fun - just what you woulld expect from Nintendo!
