    Deca Sports 3 is an improvement over the previous games in the series, but not by much. A relatively low number of the included games are enjoyable, and the rest either fall below expectations or are simply unappealing.

    There is some fun to be had in Deca Sports 3, and it's a sure-fire hit at parties. Not a hard-core sports simulator, but some lesser-known sports that don't get the full retail package are also nice to find here.

    The execution feels both overly simplistic and loose. [Dec 2010, p.87]

    No matter how many modes the game claims to have, Deca Sports 3 is too poorly designed to be entertaining, and when your standard motion controls are better than the enhanced MotionPlus controls, something is horribly wrong here.

    Greater options for customisation would have helped a bit, as would options for differing control styles, but ultimately Deca Sports 3 is flawed enough at its core that no amount of additional features would help it much. Sorry, sports fans.

    A weak and lazy attempt on the part of Hudson. Similar to the first two games, this title is marred by boring gameplay, annoying waggle controls, and a total lack of charm.
