  1. The only gratification you can get out of this game is when you pass right by it in the game aisle. Use the money you would have spent for far more gratifying ventures, like rehab. Because if you actually bought this game, I’m sure that’s exactly where you need to be headed.
  2. Balls of Fury is already one of the worst games of the year. The storyline is uninspired and the boring gameplay and outdated graphics make this table tennis game a real disaster of a game. Parents of all minor Wii-owners: don't be tempted to buy this game for a reasonable price. Whatever the price might be, it will be too much for this terrible game.
  3. With a few unlockable characters to its name that you can get in about two hours of play there is little to really keep you entertained here. Even a rental is too good for this.

    It's been a good while since I've come across a game of this caliber, which is to say that I don't often see titles that suck this bad in this day and age.
  5. A shrine to gaming incompetence. Arriving in the same month as "Galaxy" it's gotta take some balls to release something as totally inept as this and expect people to play it. [Christmas 2007, p.64]
  6. Overall, Balls of Fury for Wii delivers solid motion control ping-pong action at home.

    I feel the game is great. You have to be a fan of the movie to enjoy the game. Playing our friends utilizing your favorite character is classic. IMHO...watch the movie then play the game. It'll all jive. Full Review »

    This is the best game EVER, Why did you give it such bad scores? The hilarity of this game never ends and the 3 game modes make it even more fun! This great game deserves a score MUCH better than any other game. Full Review »

    Balls of Fury on the Wii! The title is wrong. They should've called it Balls because they certainly had some while they were making this game.
