Video Game / Wii Play
Wii would like to play.
A game sold with Wii remotes made to help new players learn how to use the contraption for future purchases. Whether or not Wii Play became the Gateway Series Nintendo wanted it to be, it did manage to become the second best non-bundle selling game ever. There are nine different games:
  1. Shooting Range is similar to Duck Hunt, this helps you find your cursor and keep it on screen while aiming for targets.
  2. Find Mii (Not to be confused with a much different game in StreetPass Mii Plaza) is a memory and matching game. Now that you can keep your cursor on screen, the game teaches you how to be more accurate and how to use two different buttons.
  3. Table Tennis pits you against a computer you must return a certain number of volleys to or your friends, who you just have to beat traditionally. This game introduces a new camera angle and helps improve player reaction time.
  4. Pose Mii has you make your Mii perform various poses so that they can fit in different silhouettes. This game requires you to twist the Wii-mote and helps the player learn to do this while hitting buttons and aiming.
  5. Laser Hockey is a simulation of air hockey with pretty neon light graphics. It takes the twisting mechanic introduced in Pose Mii and makes you twist your wrist in different directions while the cursor is moving at high speeds.
  6. Fishing introduces the rumble mechanic as well as the concept of depth, as the you move the Wii-mote further and closer to the screen in addition to left, right, up and down. Every fish is worth a different amount of points with a certain species becoming more valuable at certain periods of time.
  7. Billiards is a nine ball version of pool. This game deals with moving the Wii-mote further and closer to the screen again but the real focus is on teaching players how to hit things hard and how to tap lightly.
  8. Charge is a cow racing game and the first game that requires you to hold the Wii-mote sideways. You tilt the Wii-mote left and right to steer, tilt forwards and backwards to speed up or slow down and quickly raise it to jump.
  9. Tanks puts you in control of a One-Hit-Point Wonder tank and shoot shells at other tanks. You can also lay land mines. Nunchuck play is introduced in this game and it focuses on aiming in one direction while moving in another and avoiding enemy attacks.

Like its brethren Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort, Wii Play got a Wii Motion Plus sequel called Wii Play: Motion
