Bundled with a Wii Remote, Wii Play offers a little something for everyone who enjoyed the pick-up-and-play gaming of Wii Sports. Remote now includes a Gel Jacket for the controller, which improves grip.
Wii play collects nine quick and addictive games that are easy to pick up and play and hard to put away. Thanks to the intuitive controls of the wii remote, even the most inexperienced gamers will have no trouble mastering the controls. Wii play features nine separate mini-games, including the following:
Shooting Range, a point-and-fire game of target practice in the Duck Hunt tradition
Billiards, a simplified variation of nine-ball with stunningly realistic physics that uses your Wii Remote as your pool cue
Find Mii, in which you scan the crowds to find the right Mii - Miis you and your friends created make an appearance
Tanks!, where you command a toy tank on a miniature battlefield in a gauntlet of 100 missions
Other games include Pose Mii, Table Tennis, Fishing, Charge! and Laser Hockey

|Hey people, it’s the Raucous Rocker here. If you have seen me before, you most likely know I review metal bands, as that’s what I’m good at. But, not always, and today I will be reviewing Wii Play for the Nintendo system. Yeah, I have a Wii but I don’t use it too much, so don’t expect a whole lot of these reviews. So this game uses your custom Miis and it’s kind of cool to see them in action as many more advanced Wii games do not utilize them....read the full review|
Customer Reviews of Wii Play (with Wii Remote)
Item arrived in original package, I knew exactly what I ordered and there's no surprice. I bought a wii system for my parents, and I needed an extra controller. This product comes with a controller and Wii Play game, it's a very fun game.
Best Price Around6/15/2011
Got it fast and it has worked great every since. Can't beat the Buy.com price and convenience.
We bought this game mainly (believe it or not) for Cow Riding game. My mom fall in love with it, and although graphics are not anything special, we seem to play it lately more then Sports. It has 9 games, from which we constantly play 4 of them: games like shooting, fishing, cow riding and pool are our favorites. Additional controller came as bonus. Games are pretty easy for any age, do not require extreme movement, and it's more about learning and having control over remote.We are still learning special tricks with some games, that do give you more points, but although easy and "light", they can be still challenging once high score is reached. Table tennis was disappointing, but pool was great to teach my mom about rules and give some tips for playing game in real life. And yes, games can be played as single player or 2 players. Cow riding is very funny to even imagine. To sum it up, this is probably not as much fun and challenging as Wii Sports game, because it is asking for more mental effort along with control of movements ( each game seems to be different challenging then the one before ( there are same points for each colored fish, but you never know what fish is coming in as you play new game). As for buy.com customer service, they just proved their excellence during this purchase.
Excellent service, quick shipping.
Wii Play - Great Starter1/9/2009
Received this when I ordered the second Remote! I am addicted to the Tennis game and ROCK the boxing!! Beat my husband twice.
Kids Love it so do Adults.Thank You Wii.
Something For Everyone12/28/2008
We bought this for my husband for Christmas. The intent was for it to compliment the new Wii System and other games we'd gotten him. I was surprised that, along with the Mario Kart game, it was the game package that all of us seemed to enjoy the most. My husband was able to hold his own playing pool against our 19 year old, a seasoned gamer. I, on the other side of the spectrum, am a complete gaming novice but was able to easily play (and beat, I might add) both of them in the fishing and the skeet shooting games. The air hockey game was easy for me to pick up and yet offered enough challenges in mastering the tricks to keep all of us entertained for some time. We will soon be having friends over with young children, 4 to 8 years old, and I fully expect that they will enjoy the experience as well...most likely the games that I was able to learn. Having the game packaged with an additional controller was a very nice extra bonus since the equipment itself, if purchased alone, would cost just slightly less than the entire package!
Good price, fast shipping12/21/2008
I would have preferred to purchase this locally, but it was out of stock everywhere. The price was a few dollars less than what it had been selling for at Target or WalMart. Shipping was fast.
Great bargain for your buck.
Clearly worth it11/17/2008
You get a Wii Remote with it.. it is definitly worth it. The games in it are ok. The tank game might be the best. one. A must buy.
Game worth extra $1011/6/2008
You may not like All the games. My family like the Find Mii, Shooting Range and Fishing. You have 9 games to choose from which is good. The graphic is so so.
Remote + Games, good deal!10/7/2008
The games are somewhat lame, but for the additional $10, well worth it. Young kids enjoy them, plus it does develop skill using the remote. You can't go wrong.
worth 10 bucks9/23/2008
If you are gonna buy a extra remote (Ya gotta have at least 2 with a wii. It's no fun playing with yourself..............I'm talking about video games.) For 10 bucks more...........the games are ok. I like the ping pong, laser hockey, and target shooting game. The rest are crap. You can play 1 or 2 player. It helps give you the feel of the wii remote if you are new to it. 10 bucks well spent. I read a review saying you can't play any game you want. You only have to play a game once to unlock the next. Then once they are unlocked, you got em all and can play any 1 you want.
This is a great buy if you want a extra controller. The included game disk is a great addition. The games are pretty easy, but it is mainly to show you how the controller works. I would recommend it to anyone.
works great, just takes a little online searching on how to program it to work with the wii console.
item worked perfectly. the included game disc is somewhat entertaining, tho not jaw dropping fun. thank you buy.com!
Wii Play is definitely a "Need Play"7/16/2008
I recently bought the Nintendo Wii system and was recommended to get the Wii Play for the Wii-mote. The Wii-mote alone makes Wii Play a good investment, but playing the games with my four year old son made it a GREAT investment.
Games for Kids7/15/2008
The games are only good for 2 years old. Table tennis is complete useless, impossible to play.
A decent game, good way to get a remote6/19/2008
Wii Play isn't that exciting, but since it's just $10 more than a new remote, it's a great way to get a first new game and let two people play Wii at the same time. I give it a 5 for giving a decent game for just a little more than what I would have a paid for the remote.
A little above average stuff, only for 2 players.6/11/2008
The games are OK, can be played a couple of times or more. These are only 2 player games. Bought it for the extra Remote.
Better off just buying extra remote6/2/2008
Bought this because it came with extra remote and looked like fun games. First of all, you cannot just choose the games you want to play. This is like a test - you must do the games in order to "unlock other games". You must start with the duck shooting in order to use the 2nd game and go in order to unlock each game. Very annoying. Also, the ping pong is just you hitting back the ball - like a test - not a real game playing an opponent. Not worth the extra money - just buy an extra remote if that's why you're buying this pkg.
Great way to get that extra remote!5/20/2008
The games are quick and easy to learn and play, but that is perfect for me - after the kids go to bed, I use the games to improve my Wii skills! Plus, it's virtually free, since we needed another remote anyway. I highly recommend it.
Recreation of old games5/11/2008
Games are not that exciting I paid it for the remote. This game you will find in other games such as mario party 8. If you don't need an extra remote buy other game.
Cheesy but worth it......4/4/2008
The game itself is pretty cheesy, but it would be good for young kids. It is worth the purchase because of the fact that it comes with a controller.
Wonderful product, great service3/8/2008
As with most people, I mostly bought Wii Play for the included Wii Remote. What I didn't plan on getting was ridiculously fast shipping! I opted for the standard, free shipping; ordered it on Sunday afternoon, and it came to my door on Tuesday morning... NO JOKE! I've been buying from Buy.com for years. They've always had great shipping on my end, but this time, they really reminded me why I chose them to be my favorite online retailer.
Wii Play (with Wii Remote)3/6/2008
THIS PRODUCT WAS PRICED ACCORDINGLY WITH OTHER RETAILERS BUT THE NEAT THING ABOUT IT WAS THE FREE SHIPPING! HAD TO WAIT FOR DELIVERY OF ITEM BECAUSE IT WAS BACK ORDERED BUT IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT.
Nice Combo for the Price2/3/2008
The games are fairly easy to master and fun for all playing. Only Con I have is that I am slightly confused on the use of more than two remotes. Game instructions indicate you can use more than two but "more" button is greyed out and it seems the max remotes is two. Aside from that the games are enjoyable and it is always great to have an extra remote to allow all to play together...
The Game Works as Advertised1/31/2008
The kids bought this game mainly to get the controller. That is, accounting for the cost of buying a controller, the game is practically free. That being said, they enjoy playing these games.
Good, clean fun1/18/2008
Cheesy, silly games, but good for practicing with your Zapper or Perfect Shot gun. Also good for people still getting used to using the Wii.
Great price for this item1/17/2008
Wii,Wii. Thats french. Good suppler and fast shipper Great shipping price Too.
Save yourself $10 - just buy a remote. Nintendo should be ashamed to put out something this lame.
We love this Wii game!! My kids are having a ball with the find the Mii game. All of the games are great!!
Good deal and lots of fun!1/8/2008
You gotta love the Wii and this pack of games keeps everyone happy.
Wii Play is great1/7/2008
Really is a game everyone should get to go with the Wii, it has games the whole family can play, multigenerational and an added bonus of getting another controller. My kids love it.
