Bundled with a Wii Remote, Wii Play offers a little something for everyone who enjoyed the pick-up-and-play gaming of Wii Sports. Wii Play is made up of nine games that will test the physical and mental reflexes of players of all ages. Whether you pick up the Wii Remote to play the shooting gallery that harkens back to the days of Duck Hunt or use it to find matching Miis, a world of fun is in your hands! In addition to the shooting gallery and Mii-matching game, Wii play offers billiards, air hockey, tank battles, table tennis rally, Mii poses and a cow-riding race. Best of all? Wii Play comes bundled with a Wii Remote!

Wii Play from Nintendo is designed as a complementary piece to the Wii remote. The compilation of nine varying minis comes packaged with the peripheral for $49.99 -- or approximately $10 more than a standalone pointer. The price is definitely right and for good reason: Wii Play is incredibly shallow; in fact, by comparison it makes the already-flimsy Wii Sports look like a Zelda adventure in scope. Wii Play's mini-games are designed to last for minutes at a time and not hours, which is one of its shortcomings. That being true, for about the price of a movie ticket, it's much easier to forgive any of the project's weaknesses and embrace its strengths, even if they are short-lived.

Wii Play has a few timeless gems that should prove to be party favourites this Christmas, but regular gamer, in particular, shouldn't expect the novelty value to endure much beyond that. Think of this as commercial tutorial.

By ordinary standards there's simply nothing here - bar Billiards - that offers anything worthy of more than a few minutes play. As an introduction to the Wii and its unique control scheme it just about works, but beyond that there's very little here to get excited about.

The extreme banality of the package which would only just about hold the attention of the seriously young members of your family for any length of time can’t be ignored.

So it’s not a great compendium, but does come with a remote, so that’s a bonus (especially for multiplayer games of Wii Sports with your non-Wii owning friends).

The lack of mini-games that really grabbed me was just too small.

While introducing the finer points of the Nintendo Wii remote through mini-games like billiards and a cattle-racing game, all of them come up short in replay value, even with the ability to compete against a friend.

Frankly, there are no blockbuster offerings here. This collection of simple games is fun to play a few times, but as the package includes the Wii remote and the game for only $10 more than the price of the controller alone, it's well worth the retail price, especially given the scarcity of additional controllers for the system.

A Wii Remote costs $40, and can't be found. Wii Play costs $50, and comes with one. Worth buying only if you want an extra remote.

Wii Play excels at what it sets out to do, and as a package deal with a Wii Remote is a no-brainier purchase for new Wii owners.
