The Holy Order Of The Asian Pussy Pounders
Wii Play Round-up

You may remember my masturbatory post concerning Wii Play from last week. Well, having spent a couple of days diving in and getting wet I can finally lay down the law fellow pounders. While Wii Sports is easily the more robust game between the two, Wii Play seems intended to introduce new players to the possibilities of the Wiimote.

That's why I find it strange that it wasn't a launch title, or better, included on the system's harddrive as a demo (since that is what the game genuinely feels like). Essentially, Wii Play offers some acceptable variety, such as Shooting, Laser Hockey, Find Mii (Where's Waldo for Wii) and Cow Riding. These games make brilliant use of the controller and really do suggest ways future titles may take advantage of the tech. But on their own they fail to really capture the full potential of any one of their represented genres.

Luckily there are some "game-like" elements, such as earning medals and ranking on the leader boards. But it only took me around one hour to hit gold on 6 of the 9 games (I got at least bronze or silver on the others). Fortunately the game is packed in with a controller, which by itself retails for $40 leaving little reason to bitch about the game's shortcomings. If you're looking for a game with a bit more longevity then pick up Rayman Raving Rabbids (my personal favorite) or Wario Ware: Smooth Moves instead.
