Wii Summer Games Review

Connect with Your Teens editor Jennifer Wagner visited Nintendo and got the inside scoop on the games coming your way this season…
I recently had the opportunity to attend a fun event at the NYC offices of Nintendo where I met many Nintendo employees, enjoyed great food and drinks and tried out two new Nintendo games that are brand new this summer.
Wii Play: Motion and Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident are both fun games for all ages and the guests were lining up to play them.

Wii-Play-Motion-1.jpgWii Play: Motion introduces 12 unique minigames that use motion-control. The games can each be played alone or with up to 4 players. A Wii Remote Plus controller comes in each box.

The children at the event loved adding scoops to ice cream cones in the Cone Zone minigame.
Some of the other fun games that I tried or viewed were Flutter Fly, in which you must guide balloons through an obstacle course, Grappling Ghosts, where you find and catch ghosts and Wind Runner in which you use the controller like an umbrella and ride the wind through a race course.

This is the first time that a Mystery Case Files game has been made for the Wii. I love the film Noir look of the game, which is like an old-time mystery.

If you were worried that Nintendo was going to focus all of its efforts on the 3DS this summer, then you can stop worrying. With games like Will Play: Motion and Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident, your kids and your entire family can have a great time on the Will all summer long.
To check out all these titles and order them today, visit the Nintendo store today. And if you haven’t bought a Wii gaming system for your family, what are you waiting for? The price has been drastically reduced to $149 and it even includes Mario Kart Wii (which we love) and a Wii Wheel!
