I tried "water sports" & thought it was horrible in practically every respect (check my review). since this game got so many good reviews, I bit the bullet & got used at gamestp. I returned it 3 days ago, so excuse me that I didn't have time to play it fully nor give as extensive review as I normally do.
I thought the graphics were one of the best for a 3rd party mini game collection besides rayman raving rabbids series which was great to see. the menu choices leave much to be desired & I made sure the avatar I chose I changed the name/looks/clothes before starting as I read you were stuck w/that avatar to unlock the other games like a profile on the original wii fit to unlock the other games. there are several paths/runs to unlock for beginner, pro, expert, etc. for the several sports like skiing, slalom, snowboarding, tubing, sledding, etc. (in career you only have beginner open).
I did not play this at all w/wii remote control only, but balance board/wii mote (lift for jumps) only which is my preferred way of playing. I had trouble getting the controls to respond. in skiing, it was very sensitive to fast/jerky side to side movements (I tend to over-steer/turn until I get used to it.) when I did sledding, tubing, snowboarding, I would lean more slowly as I had a wider & straighter path (even though snowboarding has gates as well) for better control. while leaning fwd/back worked (announcer would proclaim I was moving like I was taking in the scenery & not realizing it was a race), going to the left/right was as fast as a mack truck even if I leaned on only ONE leg. it worked fine if I jerked to left/right, but not a better/controlled lean. this made tubing impossible with all the round pinball bumpers crowding the path which needed good control & barely get it to respond if I wanted to go a little to the side of one & in between others.
all & all a fun game/great ideas, but with the issues I had, it was unnecessarily frustrating. I don't have balance board issues w/wii fit, wii fit plus, rayman raving rabbids tv party, we ski, we ski & snowboard, etc. so I'm not sure if I got a bad disc or I'm more picky about needing jerky movements or none of the other reviewers used the balance board. I would love to hear from anyone who tried this with the BB & their results.
