I remember playing one of these at a party in college. I thought it was dumb and not hardcore enough for me. But with the release of Nintendo Switch, I wanted to catch up on old Nintendo 1st party titles. Found an ultra-cheap bundle on eBay. Anyway the Wiimote is gimmicky for standard (lazy) ports. But games designed for it are actually kinda cool, bordering on awesome. I just did about 45 minutes of Wii boxing and I'm sweating... I'm sure that says more about me than Wii boxing. But there is something to be said about the immersive interaction. I'll probably get Punch Out and the 3rd party weighted gloves. The flip side is you have to be super interested in the immersive experience for the payoff. So far I've only enjoyed it on Tennis and Boxing. I'm finding RedSteel to be a bit of a chore and want to play it from my couch (my current A/V setup requires me to stand to play). Might consider the gun add-on to see if it makes it more immersive. I'm loving the rock bottom accessory pricing. I haven't owned it long enough to rescind calling it gimmicky and declare it an overlooked gem. But it's possible I may have been too quick to write it off all these years.
