Description

Wii Sports is a compilation of small sports games designed to be a showcase for the Wii's motion sensitive controller. Each game has several practice modes, and there is a Fitness Age feature to measure your daily improvement at all games.
  • Tennis: A game of doubles. Swing the remote like a racket to play.

  • Baseball: The computer automates the running and fielding. The player either pitches or bats.

  • Golf: Swing the remote like a golf club to play through the included 9 holes.

  • Bowling: Play a regular 10 frame game of bowling by swinging the remote like you're rolling a bowling ball.

  • Boxing: Punch, defend, or lean, with the remote and nunchuk used to control both in-game hands.
Rather than realistic characters, each game is played using Miis, the simple characters that can be created from within the Wii's Mii Channel.
