As you move around, you might wish the graphics were more realistic and less jaggy. But this is the Wii, and its powers are limited. Nonetheless, SimAnimals makes you feel like you’re right in the woodlands.
Although you can play with just the Wiimote, I found it’s easier to move around by adding the nunchuk. Even when I used both, I still found myself accidentally clicking the bar on the bottom of the screen (which keeps you aware of your challenges).
The same goes for the info on the right of the screen. When you’re trying to pick up animals or nuts, sometimes it just gets in the way. Another drawback is that there’s no online play.
