Want to party? Just buy warioware, or wii play, or anything.

I understand wii sports having minimal graphics, but this is sad. I know it's a $20 game, but is it honestly too much to ask if you don't feel like putting any details in, to at least not make the game so jaggy. It's not my TV either, I run mario galaxy and such free of those. Ugly textures, minimal presentation, just plain lame.
How long will it take people to evolve past the idea of producing another wii sports? I suppose these games will exist forever as long as wii sports keeps selling in japan and such. There are so many things that bug me about this game. One of which is the character selection. You can't pick your own Miis for these games, the game invents it's own versions of a Mii. Only, now they lack any personality, aren't customizable by you, and they don't seem to be in particularly easy areas to reach. The way they're laid out, they all start in a lobby randomly and you have to play where's waldo to find yours, jumping around various areas. You get tickets during your games, but so far I've only seen it unlock new characters, nothing of actual interest like a fun game.
Speaking of fun games, forget the idea of a fun game. Instead prepare for the frustration of virtually bouncing a ball into glass cups. Think it's hard in real life? Try with the clunky wiimote implementation. Most of these games have been done, and done better. Like darts, featured in warioware, that's fantastically done with a good multiplayer exicution that's gotten a good 30 games out of me. Then there's games you can find in any arcade, like hoops and skeeball. You can play multiplayer on some of them, but oddly enough, not some of which you'd expect. Your skeeball versus consist of restarting a new game and memorizing a highscore because the game didn't feel a need to put 2 player in it. Also, another oddity in multiplayer, some require you to pass the controller off, some require you to have 2 controllers. I don't mind which they choose, I just wish they'd make up their mind. Some of the games you need 2 on could easily be a baton pass and needless to say, requiring 2 controllers for the baton pass wouldn't be an inconvenience to many.
Yawn, it's really nothing to get me pumped. I was happy after playing wii play's lazer hockey to death to hear the sound of a real airhockey board, but other than that, it's just a music loop with a sound here and there for say a ball bouncing. Also, for the bar environment, it sounded oddly quiet
Who wants this game?
I wish to god I could say no one, but people with a love of carnival games, wii sports, wii play, AND every other minigame compilation out there and who is foaming at the mouth for more games like it. However, saying no one wants this game is far easier, so lets just leave it at that.
