Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Winter Sports 3: The Great Tournament from RTL Entertainment and Zoo Games for the Nintendo Wii. If you've been able to spare yourself from the two disasters preceding it, you'll be shocked to learn the Winter Sports titles are motion-controlled minigame collections. The template for Winter Sports 3: The Great Tournament is largely unchanged. There are eight sports in the package — all of which use motion, none of which are remotely entertaining. This video review features video gameplay footage of Winter Sports 3: The Great Tournament for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game accessory review of the Wiimote Charging Station made by Nyko. This is a great accessory for any Nintendo Wii owner and can save tons of money on batteries. The charging station comes with two long lasting rechargeable lithium ion batteries that work with any standard Wiimote, along with new battery covers to enable the exposure of the battery contact for the convenient charging dock. The battery covers also have a nice rubberized texture to better grip the Wiimote, and add a bit of extra weight that feels pretty good for the Wii's motion controls. One minor issue is that you will need to remove rubber protective sleeves and possibly wrist straps for the Wiimotes to effectively fit into the charging dock, but it's still a bit easier than replacing other brands of rechargeable batteries. Nyko also offers a model that can hold 4 Wiimotes, and battery covers in different colors as well. This review demonstrates the use of the Nyko Wiimote Charging Station and commentary from CGRundertow reviewer Kevin.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Showtime Championship Boxing from Destination Software, Inc. for the Nintendo Wii. For what it's worth, Showtime Championship Boxing is a motion-controlled boxing game. At least, in theory. There are a few different circuits to swing your way through, and there are also single-bout exhibitions and a two-player mode. The problem with all that is the game just doesn't work. Showtime Championship Boxing is a unanimous decision for one of the very worst Wii games of all-time. This video review features video gameplay footage of Showtime Championship Boxing for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Kinect Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Kinect Rush, a Kinect game from Asobo Studio, Disney Interactive Studios and Microsoft for the Xbox 360. Kinect Rush is somewhat similar to Kinect Disneyland Adventures. Playing as a stylized version of yourself, you walk around Pixar Park and play missions based on five classic Pixar movies: Toy Story, Cars, The Incredibles and two of Derek's personal favorites, Up! and Ratatouille. The difference is in scope and authenticity. Kinect Disneyland Adventures feels like Disneyland, but Kinect Rush is simply a collection of missions that are all basically the same, without all the interactive magic and attention to detail. The missions aren't terrible, but they are very repetitive, and the motion controls become tedious within minutes. This video review features video footage of Kinect Rush for the Xbox 360 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Survivor from DreamCatcher Interactive and Mindscape for the Nintendo Wii. Survivor is the latest in a long tradition of rotten video games based on film and television. Survivor is one of the longest-running and most successful reality TV shows in history, putting two teams on an island and giving them physical challenges. It's like Double Dare, only with less slime. This is another garden-variety minigame compilation with unresponsive motion controls and uninspired game design. Apart from its theme, you've basically seen this game before on Wii. This video review features video gameplay footage of Survivor for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Racquet Sports review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Racquet Sports from Ubisoft for the Nintendo Wii. Racquet Sports is a compilation of five motion controlled sports games. It includes tennis, beach tennis (which is apparently an altogether different thing), table tennis, badminton and squash. You might notice all the games use a racquet, which is the whole point. Once you play it, you also notice they're all the same. No matter which sport you choose, you play by swinging the remote like a tennis racquet. And of course, no matter which sport you choose, the actual gameplay is indistinguishable. You're doing the same thing, just with slightly different rules. Oddly enough, the game really isn't terrible. It's a decent sports game for the casual audience. The motion controls pale in comparison to the complexity afforded in Wii Sports tennis, which made top spin and location a lot easier, but they are serviceable. This video review features video gameplay footage of Racquet Sports for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Get Up and Dance review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Get Up and Dance from O-Games for the PlayStation 3. Get Up and Dance is also available for the Nintendo Wii. Get Up and Dance is one of the most shameless rip offs we've ever seen. If you've ever played Ubisoft's Just Dance games, you'll understand. Everything about this game has been taken from those ones, the most conspicuous of which are those strange avatars with the silhouettes and creepy eyes. Get Up and Dance is a motion controlled dancing game. You can shake the Move controller to 40 songs, following the Just Dance avatar to moves that also feel quite a bit like Just Dance. There are dancing modes, fitness modes, multiplayer modes...this is as standard as it gets for this saturated genre. This video review features video gameplay footage of Get Up and Dance for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Top Spin 4 from 2K Sports for the Nintendo Wii. Top Spin 4 is also available for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) and Xbox 360Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. On the Wii, however, Top Spin 4 comes in some obvious shadows. Wii owners would be hard-pressed to find a game with more satisfying motion controls than Wii Sports or a standalone tennis game more robust than Grand Slam Tennis. Unfortunately for 2K Sports' tennis alternative, Top Spin 4 fails to match those games in either department. Top Spin 4 is one of those sports games that seem unsure about what kind of game they want to be. It tries to land its forehand right in the middle of an arcade sports game and a more realistic one, but in trying to do both, it succeeds at neither. This CGRundertow video game review features video gameplay footage of Top Spin 4 for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Michael Phelps: Push The Limit review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Michael Phelps: Push The Limit from Blitz Games and 505 Games for the Xbox 360. Michael Phelps: Push The Limit is a Kinect game starring Michael Phelps, the American Olympic swimmer who was really popular until people found out he likes to party. The game utilizes the Kinect camera to enable the most lifelike, realistic swimming you can experience without strapping on your Speedo. You play as a lowly swimmer trying to make it big. You can compete in lots of races, tournaments and events in your swimming career, each of which requires you to swim through the air. We need a motion controlled swimming video game as much as I need a motion controlled game about power walking. This video review features video gameplay footage of Michael Phelps: Push The Limit for the Xbox 360 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll from SEGA for the Nintendo Wii. Released in early 2010, Step & Roll was the second Monkey Ball game to hit the motion-controlled Wii. Step & Roll uses motion in the form of tilt control and support for the Wii Balance Board, and as different as it may be, it's anything but an improvement over the more traditional analog sticks. But it works about as well as tilt can. In fact, moving your monkey with motion is the least of the game's problems. What makes Step & Roll a step down from Banana Blitz is the game's inexplicable trimming of features that worked before. This CGRundertow video game review features video gameplay footage of Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Chuck E. Cheese's Super Collection from UFO Interactive for the Nintendo Wii. Chuck E. Cheese's Super Collection is a compilation of two prior Chuck E. Cheese games (Party Games and Sports Games) on a single disc and a budget price. If there's one word I'd use to describe Chuck E. Cheese, it's fun. I would use a very different word to describe these lousy Chuck E. Cheese video games. They are stereotypical Wii minigame collections with very thin games and very thin premises. In Party Games, you're bored, you're watching television and you see a commercial for Chuck E. Cheese, so you beg your dad to take you. It's like a motion-controlled commercial. This video review features video gameplay footage of Chuck E. Cheese's Super Collection for the Nintendo Wii and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game review of EyeToy: Play 2, a motion-controlled minigame compilation developed by SCE London Studio and published in 2005 by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 2. The follow-up to the original EyeToy Play arrives with a dozen new games, incorporating motion control and showing you just how silly you look flailing around in front of a television like that. But that doesn't matter, because you're making video game history with innovative body-moving controls! And punching a speed bag. This CGRundertow video game review features video gameplay footage of EyeToy: Play 2 for the PlayStation 2 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video game hardware review of the EyeToy, a digital USB camera developed by SCE London Studio and produced in 2003 by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 2. The EyeToy took motion control and game photography to a completely new level with its innovative and revolutionary motion-sensing mechanics and EyeToy Cameo capability. With 80 titles supporting the device, it's one of the most-utilized peripherals this side of the Rumble Pak. This CGRundertow video game review features footage of EyeToy for the PlayStation 2 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.
