Wii Outdoor Games

Recommended Posts

It's official. The family is getting a Wii for Christmas (actually it's my wife that REALLY wants it). I need something to play after the kids are in bed. I've seen some bad reviews on the Rapala fishing game. Are any of the other Fishing/hunting games any good? I've seen a few in the Cabelas catalog, has anyone tried them?

I have fun on the rapala game. I've read some bad reviews too, but I think people expect too much from a video game.

I've seen a Wii hunting game at Fleet for pretty cheap. You should check out Wii Play. There's plenty to keep you interested. Santa is bringing my kid Ski, Music and another Points card. We didn't give up the N64 but he seems to get more fun out of the download versions that are among the few available. And, just sayin', don't give up on the old systems as there's plenty of long-term investment value there although you'll never get all you have into them.

We've also added the LAN adapter so that he can play worldwide on the Goreweb, which is like adding another level to the games you have or rent.

OK Gang,

I just picked up a Wii bundle on Black Friday. I got the system with 3 controller, 3 nunchucks and 3 games. Wii sports is OK, King of Clubs is not so hot, yet, and Mario Sluggers takes some getting used to. We have only been playing for a few hours.

Give me some suggestions on a fishing game. Let's hear some reviews of why you like or dislike the game you have or have played.

Also, what is up with this Wii points thing, how does that work. My 25 year old son is pretty computer savvy and he hooked our system up to our wireless network in our house so we can go on line to get things, I guess. Can you check your email and things like that from the big screen TV thru the Wii?

All suggestions are welcome as I am a newbie ( but I have already had bowling games of 200 plus several times!

Can't really tell you much about the points. Mario Kart is a great game, one of the most fun out there. I would get that. I would check out this link Wiiiiiiii for other game ideas and online codes from other users.

you should be able to check your email if you have the internet program. it just doesnt play videos and some other things, but i believe i could check my email. havent used it in about 8 mos. if you want a really cool game for multiple people, definitely look into super smash bros. brawl.it is fun for hours if you are playing with 2-4 players. good for all ages too.

Rapala tournament fishing is a decent wii fishing game. Its pretty fun to play and actually do the casting motion and set the hook on the fish instead of just pushing buttons. However, its hard to play that now when i got call of duty on the 360 sitting right next to it.

Wii Points work when you have the LAN adaptor hooked through your internet modem. There's a store where you can buy discontinued versions of games, or instance, maybe 10 earlier Mario games that worked with N64. The games play the same as the older versions and the graphics are the same, too, and not high-end like the new system provides. A 2,000-point card costs $20 and and old game costs 1,000 to 800 points. You choose them and download into the DH on your Wii. I'm not sure if you can back them up to the external cards, but there's a record of what you purchased so maybe you can get a second download if your system takes a powder.

    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some. 
    • Brotha’ you got that right.   Actually I’m cooking hobos over the campfire in Ely right now.  Not a bad second fiddle.   I won’t be a cooking hobo in a blind this weekend.
