Is It Any Good?

If Wii Play: Motion was meant to show us just how much better the new Wii Remote Plus works, it succeeds. These games will not only have you using a Wii remote in ways you never have before, they'll also make you realize how shaky and imprecise the original Wii remotes feel in comparison. Many of the games here are genuinely great in their own rights. The suspenseful shooting gallery is a blast (pun intended), especially when you need to pivot your body and point past your TV screen to hit unseen targets. The pinball flipper puzzle game (which has loads of levels) could probably have been a game by itself. And the ghost-catching game, in which ghosts fly out of your TV set -- characters on screen give you hints as you scan the entire room with your remote to locate the invisible enemies -- is a novel good time. Not every game is a complete home run -- the ice cream game gets repetitive and the Wii-posing game is a repeat from the original Wii Play -- but there are enough great games here to recommend the package.
