Go Play City Sports





Go Play City Sports 


Family Friendly Gaming loved the first two Go Play franchise games, and we were excited to get a reviewable copy of the latest - Go Play City Sports. Something has gotten lost between releases because Go Play City Sports does not feel like Go Play Circus Star or Go Play Lumberjack. In fact there are fewer mini games, and they are all over the board in terms of difficulty. The six mini games included are Stickball, Kickball, Street Hockey, Handball, Jump Rope, and Shootout Soccer.

Go Play City Sports has a lot of colors, and inner city kind of images. Things like construction equipment, graffiti, fire hydrants, subway entrances and the like. There is an artistic look to the graphics, but not a lot of details. Many of the kids look similar, and rarely are they shown close up. A few are even recycled. The most violent images are things like kids getting checked in the hockey game, or being hit with the ball in kickball.

The sounds in Go Play City Sports are around average. They did not irritate the WMG, but they also were nothing that stayed with this reviewer for long. Kicking a home run in kickball happened so often that the celebration sounds became normal sounds. They also wound up being pretty repetitive. This Wii game does have visual directions on how to play the game.

Four players can compete in Go Play City Sports. That is the main saving grace of this game. There is also customization for creating characters. The six games make this really light, and some of the mini games (like jumping rope) have been done a whole lot better in other video game compilations. The City Sports theme does not seem to work well in this reviewers opinion.

The controls made little to no sense to the WMG in most of these mini games. Shake the Wii Remote at the right time to kick the ball. This was also not very interesting to this reviewer. The whole running between cones to kick a soccer ball is also something that made little sense. The biggest problem with Go Play City Sports is the difficulty. Winning by 40 runs is pretty common in kickball, and losing by 10 in the hockey game is also common. This Wii game seems to be set in extremes. Either it watched you demolish it, or it decides you need to eat some crow.

Go Play City Sports teaches families a few different games like handball, and kickball. Okay, maybe the WMG should have said re-learn those games. Adults may vaguely remember playing them in their youth (editor: kickball at least). The WMG still likes the Go Play label. It just needs to be more like Circus Star and Lumberjack in this reviewer’s opinion.
