The Bottom Line

If FlingSmash weren't a Wii MotionPlus game, I probably would have enjoyed it more. With its colorful cartoon world, quirky characters, and its overall sense of whimsy, it shares traits with many of the Nintendo classics I've come to adore over the years. Unfortunately it is a MotionPlus game, and for me that indicates a level of control and precision that the game never truly achieves, and I'm left flailing about instead of falling in love.


FlingSmash was developed by Artoon and published by Nintendo for the Wii, released on November 7. Retails for $49.99 bundled with the Wii Remote Plus. A copy of the game was given to us by the publisher for reviewing purposes. Played through all eight game worlds single-player, played a few two-player co-op levels, and tried out a few of the unlocked mini-games.
