We have owned our Wii since early summer and have had only a few games during the time we’ve owned it. I added the Wii Fit soon afterwards and we’ve enjoyed using that (although, I should use it much more frequently than I do) as well. Between the 3 of us, we received 4 new games for Christmas and we’ve literally spent the last several days playing Wii games.
If you’re looking to get up off the couch and get your blood pumping, I highly recommend Outdoor Adventure. Up to 2 can play at the same time or compete and it’s really a decent workout, even if you only do it for 5 or 10 minutes a day, it’s worth it. The kids will love it and it works with a mat similar to a DDR mat instead of a board like Wii Fit, so there’s less chance of falling off!
My husband gave me Hell’s Kitchen which I’ve been having fun with. I have to say, I could never put up with Gordon Ramsey yelling at me on a regular basis and so I don’t play the game for too long in one stretch! My daughter is much better at the game than I am, so she doesn’t get yelled at like I do.
If you have kids that like to play kitchen then I have to recommend Order UP. I had done a paid post on this game several months ago and wound up purchasing it for my daughter. She absolutely loves it and is cooking her way on up the restaurant chain.
My daughter also received Animal Crossing – City Folk. This game has been a bit disappointing so far. First of all, only one person can play at a time and even then, the game progresses so slowly. My daughter and I have each spent several hours moving our characters through the jobs and tasks, and yet we’re just getting started. We can’t play at the same time, so we end up switching back and forth every hour or so.
In the end, we keep coming back to our favorite game, Mario Kart. We’ve had this game from the beginning and can all 3 play at the same time. Last night, we FINALLY figured out how to do tricks and pop wheelies and it has added a whole new dimension to our racing. My husband likes going onto the WiFi channel and racing people from around the globe. We’re anxiously awaiting my step-daughter and her husband getting their wireless internet connection fixed so that we can race against them via the WiFi connection.
So, my sewing projects have screeched to a halt while we feed our video game addiction, please excuse me!
By the way, this is NOT a paid post, just a summary of what we’re up to in our house!
