Wii Grand Slam Sports Pack – Black

I purchased 2 of these back when my wife and I bought our Wii. After playing with the sports pack for a while, we got kind of tired of it. Switching the controllers in and out was annoying, and, as other reviewers have mentioned, it’s impossible to set the game up with the remote in some of the equipment (like the tennis racket). We have found the game to be much more enjoyable WITHOUT the sports pack. I wouldn’t bother wasting your money on this one, personally…

For the price, this sports pack cannot be beat. It is a useful and almost necessary add-on for any Wii system.

The baseball bat, tennis racket, and golf club share the same handle. The Wii controller fits into the handle. The handle screws onto each attachment. The protective clear cover on the controller must be removed first.

The baseball bat makes hitting much more fun. It’s made of a lightweight plastic so it isn’t even close to the weight of a real bat. (Which is a good thing for your TV). I still found myself assuming a batter’s stance and following through on my swing. Oh, the controller must be removed during pitching. Not a big deal since it just slides out of the handle.

The tennis racket is sorely needed. It makes the tennis game much more fun. Stepping into forehand and backhand shots feels realistic. The racket was so much fun that I now play 5-6 games each time I fire up the Wii.

The golf club is nice but very short. I wish it had a little more length to it. Controller is about 2ft fully extended. Perhaps attaching a weight to the club head might help.

Haven’t tried the steering wheel. Can say that the Wii controller sits in the middle of the steering wheel.

We purchased the Wii Grand Slam Sports Pack despite some reviewers saying you had to remove the remote to access various functions or change games, etc.

We quickly discovered that you do not need to use the infra red control with the bat, tennis racket etc. All you have to do is use the “buttons” (left, right, up, down, A, B, etc.) on the remote after it is put into the bat, racket, wheel, golf club and you can change games, players, start new game, etc. Very very cool. The Sports pack has added a whole new dimension to our gameplay. We have so much more fun now batting the ball, playing “intense” tennis matches, golfing, racing… the accessories make you feel more like you are playing the real game. Although I must agree with one reviewer who mentioned they wish the golf club was a bit longer. Considering the length of the bat and tennis racket, I don’t know why they made the golf club so short, but still makes golf more fun than just using the remote (has not helped my “wicked-slice” however…. ).

You do have to remove the remote from the accessory handle when you want to return to main menu to end for the day, but all you really have to do is “tilt” the remote up at the end and that is it!

Again, We (the entire family and extended family are having the time of our lives with the Wii Grand Slam Sports Pack! I highly recommend this to anyone who has a Wii. You won’t be sorry. Just play around with the buttons on the remote to control the various game options (start, stop, players, number of players, levels, etc.) and you will have a great time!

My husband received this sports pack for his birthday. The first thing we tried to use was the steering wheel…we had another one made by Nintendo and we wanted to play Mario Kart together.

We were sad to see that the Steering Wheel does not work — there is no cutout for the sensor at the end of the Wii remote to communicate with the game! It completely blocks the signal from the remote! You would think they would have noticed this…The Nintendo steering wheel, however, works fantastic.

This looked like the perfect addition to our Wii. We discovered immediately that it is not even made by the same manufacturer as Wii and is not put together well at all! The controller and pool stick do not line up so do not work together. The bat does not screw on to the remote holding piece properly. We didn’t even try the rest of the stuff after we tried the pool stick and bat. It’s all cheap and worthless light plastic that looks like it could break at any minute and that does not fit together well. Thank goodness for the return policy at the store we bought this from!!!
