estaples commented on Review: Go Vacation (Wii):

YOU CAN TELL A GAME IS GREAT WHEN PEOPLE HUNT FOR AND PURCHASE IT BRAND NEW, YEARS AFTER IT'S RELEASE. Go Vacation is one of those games—look up Amazon consumer review and sales data.

For folks coming in with the presupposition that it's a mere knock-off attempt, it's easy to miss the differences and fail to see where Go Vacation really shines: the immense island exploration and RPG-like side quests (which Wii Sports Resort didn't offer), aside from those mini games that are unique and considerably deep (surfing, scuba-diving—years before Wii U, etc), some of which could almost be stand alone titles! You really need to invest some time to get a clear view of the game.



estaples commented on Wii Sports Club Is The Handiwork Of Namco Band...:

This headline got me excited because I'm a big fan of Namco Bandai's Go Vacation for the Wii, which is the same genre (though not online) and really fun if you got to spend a bit of time with it. I would love to see their take on a Wii Sports Resort U, as the exploration elements of Go Vacation were brilliant.
