Basically Wii Sports 2. Great game.

More Miis is definitely good. The game itself is pretty fun. It has nine modes of play: Shooting, Find Mii, Table Tennis, Pose Mii, Laser Hockey, Billiards, Fishing, Charge, and Tanks.
This is basically Duck Hunt (occasionally ducks will actually fly across the screen - shooting them will give you a whopping ten points) and it has 5 stages. In the first stage, you shoot all the balloons, and if you do the colors in order, you even get extra points. Pretty easy. Next, you shoot the targets. The shiny, colorful ones give you ten whole points (and five in multiplayer games), so be sure to get those. Don't shoot your Mii because you lose points. Fairly easy, but you'll usually miss a few. Next, you shoot clay pigeons. That's right, those things that fire out like frisbees. You have to shoot them. Fairly easy. Then comes the cans. You shoot them, and they fly into the air. Then you shoot them again. You get one extra point each time you do this, so you would get 3 points for shooting it three times. It blows up at 5 though. Then there's the idiotic final round. I swear they were high when they made this one, because you have 6 Miis, and spaceships start coming and taking them. Yes, that's right, *FLYING SAUCERS*. You have to shoot them. Each Mii left after the flying saucers' attacks are done are worth ten points. Very stupid.
Basically a really complicated matching game, although sometimes it wants you to find Miis that don't fit in with the rest. Or find a specific Mii.
This is just ping pong. It gets faster and faster, rallying 100 times will get you a gold rank. Then they want you to rally even more times to get Platnium! AHH!
You pose your Mii. They can pose three different ways, and you must match them with the bubbles before they fall all the way down. Occasionally time stop bubbles will fall, and they are useful in times of need. Gets hard really fast.
This is a really small air hockey, only called laser hockey because of its neon sign-esque stylization on the graphics. Unfortunately, the board is way too small and it sucks.
Pool, except that you have to hit the balls in order into the holes. Fouls take away points at the end. Hitting the ball with the stick is glitchy as all get-out for some reason. And it's not just me.
Fishing is fairly difficult at first, but you get used to it. Occasionally a bonus will come up and if you catch that fish, you get double points for it. Useful when King of the Pond comes around. Over 3,000 points gets you gold. Don't get the tiny grey fish: -50 points! AHH!
The only game that uses the NunChuk. You don't have to use it, but it's easier that way. It's basically a third person shooter. Well, almost. It's an isometric view, really. So bullets hide behind walls and get you. Totally lame. But this is probably the most entertaining one out there. Also second place in the "Seems to drag on forever" award (first being Find Mii). This would be my favorite, even if it is hard and I'm not all that good at it.
Overall, Wii Play is a fun game that probably won't take you that long to abandon. But it's still a good addition to your collection of games, even if half the reason you got it was because it came with a WiiMote.
