  1. Six simple sporting events that will provide some fun for the summer. [Issue#24, p.76]
  2. As it is Big Beach Sports will provide some fairly limited, short term fun, but when available for less than £20 maybe that's not such a bad thing.
  3. Don't expect anything taxing but there's just enough content to make this a worthwhile multiplayer title for the younger gamer. [Aug 2008, p.62]
  4. 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.
  5. What a stinker. [Aug 2008, p.101]
  6. This videogame tries to be successful by copying something already established, but the result is something dull, with very little reasons to exist.

    Now who does not love Football on the beach?
    This game has everything the family could want from a Wii title; the game is assessable to the younger audience while retaining lots of depth for the more hardcore gamer - the hours will literally fly by whether it is playing 1-4 player Volleyball or the Surprisingly brilliant Bocce
    Not to mention the brilliant create a player feature, that ALMOST makes up for the lack of Miis, and 18 holes of Frisbee golf!

    Great game to play with friends or fam. Similar to wii sports. It would be a perfect game for me if could have used mii's.

    Good effort... way better then Deca Sports... not as addictive as Wii Tennis or Bowling though. But Cricket, Bocce & Volleyball are extremely Good effort... way better then Deca Sports... not as addictive as Wii Tennis or Bowling though. But Cricket, Bocce & Volleyball are extremely well done... (American) Football only being 2-v-2 is boring, Disc Golf is too easy (birdie or better every hole on first try), and (Soccer) Football is the worst of the bunch. Single player is thin, but fun as multiplayer games. Expand

    Definitely not the most in depth game, but for the price it is one of the best bang for your buck party games out. Soccer is lacking, and Definitely not the most in depth game, but for the price it is one of the best bang for your buck party games out. Soccer is lacking, and cricket is surprisingly fun. Expand

    This game is not good at all. I sold my Wii because of this.
