A little behind the times as far as Summer Olympics go, a little gawky in its presentation, and with game play that is downright frustrating at times the fun events are often interrupt by the feeling of sterility. That said, a number of the events are fun little time killers, and others have just the right amount of challenge to be compelling.
Unfortunately, the bad definitely outweighs the good when it comes to World Championship Games. I'm all for more attempts by developers to do something interesting with the controls on the DS, but World Championship Games tries a little too hard to be inventive, and the end result is a bit messy.
