IGN: Pong Toss: Frat Party Games Review

One of the truths that Wii has helped accentuate is that sometimes, simple is better. Take, for instance, the incredibly simplified control scheme powering Wii Sports bowling. All you do is pick up the virtual bowling ball with your Wii remote, swing backward, forward, and release. All the gameplay intricacies and all the hidden depth are tethered to the motion of your swing and the game is incredibly fun, if not completely addictive, as a result.

Perhaps JV Games was clinging to these very ideals when it decided to bring Pong Toss: Frat Party Games to Nintendo's WiiWare service. Unfortunately, though, there is also another videogame truth that the developer altogether ignored: execution is everything. Pong Toss is a simple idea brought to Wii in such a poor state, from lackluster graphics to uninspired controls, that it will turn you off to fraternities from here forward.

The story is too old to be commented.
