    Don't waste your money/time/internet bandwidth with this crappy game !
    Seeing the trailer is wasting time enough to decide not to play this game !
    And to answer your question :
    Cricket - Volleyball - Americain football - Soccer - Boules - Disc golf (???)

    Edit: typos

    Disc Golf is an actual sport with their own league.

    This game has the charm and charisma of a crippling terminal disease, there's nothing particularly "bad" about it. You can just tell that there was zero passion or effort in it's development, it's just another sub-par party game for the Wii made worse by the "Mii-like" characters that aren't Mii's. Let's be honest, graphically Mii's are rubbish so why emulate them in your game? At least do the sensible thing and *use* Mii's.

    This game might be fun as a party game for half an hour if you don't have anything more exciting to play, such as the Wii channel menu [​IMG]

    This might be crap, but how can you judge gameplay based on a video ?

    I watched the trailer and wanted to dismiss it right away. But let's be honest. Allthough it doesn't LOOK thrilling at all, it COULD be fun. It probably isn't, but I won't slag it off before I try it.

    I am very much on the fence though, because I was all enthusiastic about Carnival Games when it came out and it was a HORRIBLE game!

    Still I don't think it's fair to say it IS crap when you've not played it.

    Ok, game is not good, that's nothing new to the wii.
    But my question is: is this game better than Deca Sports aka. Deca Sporta aka. Sports Island ?

    could be scrubbed or without nfo, that's why it's not official

    You can't say that because you simply don't know until proven, right? Try it out and you know!

    FYI, got it working on NTSC 3.3U D2Pro (19-wire install using firmware 1.0). I did RegionFrii and BrickBlock the ISO first.

    First... this is better then Deca Sports... the response and timing of the controls are so much better on all of the games and controls. Simple game run down. Cricket, great game, batting is solid, bowling timing is bit weird. Volleyball, good game, solid controls, blocking is difficult, way better then Deca (note: you play both players on your side if you play single player). Football (Soccer), only slightly better then Deca, playing without nunchuk is kind of weird (you can do manual runs w/ d-pad, otherwise is all automatic). American Football, it's two on two, limited downs to make entire field, you're the QB, you can influence the runs with the d-pad, simple controls, but overall game is bit boring. Bocce, it's BBS's response to Deca Curling... it's fun game, with simple controls, would be great with a crowd. Disc Golf, controls are very simple and accessible, but the gameplay is too simple (easily got a birdie every hole).

    Again, this is way better then Deca Sports. The controls actually work and respond as expected. My main return to this game will be for Beach Cricket and Bocce.

    A friend of mine bought this so we had a bit of a play a couple of days ago and its pretty bad. Every one of the 6 sports are poor. The control is pretty much easy for casual gamers which makes this a step up from the shit DSI & DDI release but at the same time make the game so damn boring even against human players.

    Presentation is real shitty too, its a shame that this is selling well, hell some casual gamers will enjoy this but me & my friend thought it was just poor and lacking.

    This game is actually being advertised in UK television. When I watch Sky Sports they show adverts of THQ games and this game is one of them!
