Go Play Lumberjacks 

 

 

Some may think placing Go Play Lumberjacks in the sports section is not a good fit. But if you watch enough sports show you will notice woodland games, lumberjack chores, and the like are shown on sports channels. Go Play Lumberjacks is a nice mix of sports action, mini games, and family play. In fact Go Play Lumberjacks is best played with more than one person in my opinion (editor: more on that later). So the player gets to compete in fifteen different events. The axe throw is one of my personal favorites. It is like a shooting gallery but there is a lag waiting for the axe to make it to the target. Sawing logs in different forms and fashions are pretty cool too.

Go Play Lumberjacks has a cartoon look and feel to it. There are various characters like Jack, the ninja, pirate, knight and others. Jill is the main character I question. She is dressed in a way that is busting out - so to speak. The worst violence is the characters falling in the water from certain events. Watching trees being cut up is not an image that bothers me.

The music in Go Play Lumberjacks is light hearted, and it fits the theme of this Wii game nicely. The majority of the characters have very safe comments when they win and lose. They show their disappointment of course, but it is actually pretty tame compared to a lot of other games on the market. I think there are also some inside jokes in this game, but I won’t spoil that for you. In fact it may make you look harder for them.

Go Play Lumberjacks has quite a few unlockable characters including Mii’s, and up to four players can play at once. The Balance Board works great with Go Play Lumberjacks, as does the Wii Remote. There are a lot of themed mini games on the Wii, and this one is one of the few I feel is worth the price of admission.

The controls in Go Play Lumberjacks are very easy to use. I read the instructions for the first few, and was able to figure out the rest without reading them. I like how Go Play Lumberjacks does not force the player to read the instructions (it is a choice on one of the screens). I had a lot of fun playing Go Play Lumberjacks, and I was not expecting that.

Go Play Lumberjacks teaches good clean competition in my opinion. Complete the tasks to the best of your ability while burning a few calories. I like the idea of a lumberjack based game and would love to see a sequel to Go Play Lumberjacks. I would love to see online options added to any of those sequels.
