"Ow godie, an HD port of a tech-demo, what could possibly go wrong?'"

Wii Sports Club is an HD "port" of Wii Sports game released for the Wii U, It was developed by Bandai Namco Studios, Nintendo EAD and published by Nintendo.

Bad Qualities

  1. This game is nothing but a rehash of the original Wii Sports, but with HD graphics instead of something new.
  2. This game sterted Nintendo's infamous practice, with the release of their sports games in an unfinished state.
    • At Launch game was released with two sports (Tennis and Bowling) then almost 3 weeks later Golf and six months later Baseball and Boxing. So we were forced to wait nearly seven months from release to actually get true original port, which is just crazy.
  3. This one also charges money for individual sports, which is unacceptable for an AAA game. This could also be a victim of a mobile game instead.
    • And that's not all, it also charges money for the three remaining sports by using a Rental Pass for one day.
  4. This one has some missed opportunities, there could have been more sports for this game like its predecessor, Wii Sports Resort, such as Basketball and Volleyball (which could be later debuted in Nintendo Switch Sports).
  5. The graphics were taken straight from the original, with no enhancements. So in HD graphics look lifeless, which is most noticeable in golf.
  6. If you want to play the game you must be connected to the internet, even if you're not playing online. Which makes no sense considering that the original game didn't require it, so there is no reason why this one has to.
  7. Boxing got even worse in this version. Characters have no real feel of punching which makes the whole fight extremely anti-climatic.
    • You are forced to use the Wii Motion Plus controller and remember these version are more expensive than a normal Wii remote.
  8. Overpriced: The full game costs 40 bucks despite being just HD ports of tech demo, when original game costed 20.
  9. You can already play original better Wii sports due to the Wii U backward compatibility, so it makes this port almost useless.

Good Qualities

  1. 111 new CPU Miis were introduced, each of them using facial features introduced in the 3DS/Wii U's Mii Maker, replacing the original ones from the Wii. These new Miis were carried over to Wii Party U.
    • However, the player can use the original Wii CPU Miis, provided they re-created the Miis and put them in the Favorites of their Wii U.
  2. All sports (except Boxing) are still enjoyable and fun for the whole family.
  3. There is online play, that was missing from the original game.
  4. The main theme of this game is nice, and it even got a remix from Super Smash Bros.
  5. At least there are new challenges to play such as the 100-pin Challenge in Bowling and Bingo Golf in Golf.

Reception

Game got mixed reception by critics and mixed or negative by fans. On Metacritic has a score of 68/100 based on 21 reviews.
