What do these ratings mean?

Wii Sports is the first game realesed on launch with a new system, and it was a good idea. In Wii Sports, there are five sports you can play, baseball, bowling, boxing, golf and tennis. In baseball, you swing the wii remote like a bat while batting and you swing it like you would a real-life pitch, even though you don't have to. In bowling, you swing your arm like you were bowling and you aim where you want throw. Boxing is the only game wher you use the nunchuk, (the one with the control stick) even though you don't use it to move, you use it as your left hand. The wii remote acts as your right hand while, like I already said, the nunchuck acts as your left hand. In golf, you swing the remote like a golf club or putter. You don't need to be good at golf either, it's much easier on the wii. In tennis, you swing your arm like a tennis racket, either forehand or backhand. There are only two flaws in the game. The first is that you can't move your character freely, it is done by itself, even though it sends you towards the ball or other boxer. The other flaw is only in baseball. You can't throw the ball to the base. If the other team catches the ball infield, it is an automatic out, even if it touched the ground before the other team catches it!!!! The only way this is good is when your team is not batting. Also, it is one of those games that you might not want to keep playing. Still, this game is a great example of the innovative use of the Wii Remote and I advise you to play it!!!
