Our kids are better at it (for now) than we are due to their experience in playing Wii games. We are learning what to do by their coaching us and us watching them. It's fun to be on teams so we equal out our experience. It is an active game you have to manipulate your person through the course quickly, make them jump over things, duck under stuff and more. Wipe Out has been a great game choice for our family on all levels, for adults to play, for kids to play, for mixed ages to play together as well.
