Demian pretty much nailed it: For someone who barely understands what a videogame even is (Mom!), Wii Play is probably the best playable instruction manual ever. But for anyone who’s, uh, ever played a videogame, more than half of the nine mini games are about as fun as a Wii Remote calibration test. Still, even the suckiest games are OK in multiplayer and, for that reason alone, it’s ideal “family gathering” material.
