  1. The production values and overall presentation certainly fit this cut-rate title, and you'll soon get bored if you're playing alone.
  2. Yet another party game for the Wii. You'll get to take part in sports like frisbee golf, cricket, volleyball, soccer and American football. Precious few of these are any fun, and the overall experience lacks the polish you expect from a retail game. Steer clear of this one folks.
  3. This is a game that had potential, but that potential was not fully realized. The game is not terrible, especially in a multiplayer setting, but it just fails to connect in a truly long-lasting entertaining way.
  4. Given that the game only allows the use of the Wii-mote, playing a good old game of football seems a hard concept to imitate. Needless to say, this sport is ridiculously unsatisfying.
  5. What a stinker. [Aug 2008, p.101]
  6. The truth is that Big Beach Sports manages to do a couple of things passably while doing absolutely nothing right. While the title boasts a solid lineup of events that really ought to be fun to play, there is simply no fun to be had with this game.
  7. 25
    A true cash-in project that ignores some of the great control fundamentals laid down with Nintendo's game for an unintelligent waggle-and-win design.
  8. 20
    As satisfying as a sand-ridden shoe, without the fortunate side effect of having gotten some fresh air. Take a ball to the local seaside shingle instead.
  9. This videogame tries to be successful by copying something already established, but the result is something dull, with very little reasons to exist.
