Games review: Playmobil: Circus


Format Wii

Publisher JoWooD

Presumably, game publishers hawk dismal collections of poorly animated minigames on the cheap because children are thought to be mugs. But the practice is wearing pretty thin. Playmobil: Circus is the latest addition to that sorry tradition, consisting of a string of Wii Remote controlled minigames set in the big top. Spinning plates is sort of fun, albeit pretty tricky for the tiddlers, and I like the idea of trampolining cows, but that aside it is all insultingly basic.
