The thing that really appealed to me about this game is that it is compatible with the Wii Balance Board, but you do not have to have one to play this game. I will say though it will not be nearly as much fun without the Wii Balance Board, but it is still fun. The game is really easy to set up, just pick your character and clothes then start exploring. There are 8 games to choose from but within each game is different levels, I am still on Easy! A few of the games are similar but I didn’t mind as there really are only so many ways to stand and move with the Wii Balance Board. I really liked the Ski Distance Jumping and my sons thought it was cool to watch. The dancing, both Hulu and Fire, were fun and challenging and definitely my next favorites. By playing each game you obviously get ranked but you also earn sand dollars to buy items and unlock levels within the Surf Shack. You can play up to 4 players with this game but so far no one has had the chance to play with me so I can’t speak for multi-player but I do love that the game includes that option. The graphics are bright and fun and really give off an island vibe. This would be a great game for families, as a party game, or anyone just looking to get up and move around!
