    So I just saw on Joystiq that Wii Play is due out this week. Any Wii owners plan on picking this one up?

    I hear some good and some bad about the game. I love little mini games, and stuff like this for parties, so it sounds like a good one to add to the collection. Plus it comes with another Wii-mote.

    Here's the IGN bit on the game: http://wii.ign.com/objects/853/853786.html

    And the wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wii_Play

    Damn, I didn't know it was coming out so soon, I thought it got delayed.

    I held off on buying a second Wiimote just for this, so it's about time.

    I might get it, I'll have to hear from others if it's worth buying. It sounds cool that the game comes with an extra wii remote.

    Bizarre thing is, I can't seem to find a Wii Play entry on ebgames.com, but I can find it listed as coming out tomorrow at BestBuy.com.

    And for those who were curious, the Joystiq article about new games this week can be found here: http://www.joystiq.com/2007/02/12/new-games-this-week/

    Tomorrow or Wednesday is the release in most places. I just bought a Wii yesterday so it's good timing.

    I'm getting it just for the fact that it's basically a free game with a Wii-Remote.

    That's why I'm picking it up. And even if one player sucks two player may be pretty fun. It'll probably be something you can pick up and play every once in a while like Wii Sports.

    I just read the IGN review, which gave it a 5.5, and I was excited when they said the Tanks! game was like the old Atari game Combat which I thought of when they announced it last year. I loved that game back in the day and still have it, now if I could only connect my Atari to my TV without static. I guess I need to look into getting another nunchuk when I get the money to get the game.

    Reviews, reviews, reviews! First off, you are getting it unabated, which is good. But if I followed the reviews to guide me to my every game, I would be unhappy indeed. With that said, I don't have a Wii.

    All Wii-less and no Play, makes Samana a dull boy.

    if I followed reviews I never would have bought Red Steel or Trauma Center: Wii.

    Both are great fun for me anyway.

    Sometimes I follow reviews but most of the time I just look at the info on a game to decide what I want. The one time I'm glad I followed a review was Tales of Symphonia. I really liked the game and bought it because the review was good. I'm sure I have my fair share of games that got poor reviews but I don't care, I just go for what I want.
