IGN: Summer Games II Review

Summer Games II is part of the overall "Games" series of Epyx Commodore titles that also famously included classic hits like Winter Games and California Games. Its name recognition, pedigree and intact nostalgic value will make it a hit here on the Virtual Console for a select group of players who remember enjoying the original release on the C64 back in the '80s -- it even came it at #3 in a recent Retro channel article on the Top 10 Olympics Videogames, on the strength of those warm memories. So if you're a member of that audience, download away.

But 500 Wii Points is too steep a price for a game with this steep a learning curve for every other Wii owner out there, and IGN would advise that most players stay away from this one. You'll have more fun sticking with sports games that make immediate sense and are easy to pick up and play, like the good old copy of Wii Sports that you're probably still going back to for more bowling to this day.
