Overall, this game does a lot of things right with the content it provides. There are numerous Olympic Events mixed with a few fun made up games that have the ability to keep your attention and wonder for many hours. Each event has its own individual method of perfection and it will take sometime to master them all in order to get the highest score. My only complaint about the events is that they seem to demand the Wii mote more than the gamepad. When one the main selling points of the Wii U is that gamepad, why have such a mainstream game focus so much on old technology. Having the ability to use your Mii in the events is also a great function. Dressing your Mii with new customs and equipment to change not only his cosmetic look, but his attributes is a lot of fun. Personally I would say if you are looking for a fun multiplayer game this is probably the way to go. However, I think your single player experience will fall short eventually since beating your high score only goes so far.

Winter olympics fun for the Wii U!
November 21, 2013
This could have been a great game but it is plagued by repetitive controls and just some boring gameplay. If you own a Wii U and you love the olympics you might want to rent this title first otherwise give some of the other Wii U titles a try.
