  1. The inability to use your Miis as playable characters hurts. However, for $30, it's a fun game to play with friends, even if competitive figure skating sounds somewhat ridiculous.
  2. The price is right, the games are fun, and the whole family being able to get in on the action together has to be a good thing.
  3. Every game was really really pixilated.

    If you're a Wii Sports fan who is hungry for new challenges, Deca Sports deserves a shot.

    A shallow affair when played solo, but with seven of the sports providing a good grin in multiplayer, this is a decent addition to the mini-game genre. [July 2008, p.66]
  6. Official Nintendo Magazine UK

    Too basic for single-player gaming and too expensive for multiplayer gaming. [June 2008, p.86]
  7. Deca Sports offers an efficient interface and a couple of high points during gameplay… but only that.
  8. Wii Sports is still the reigning champion when it comes to party sports games. Deca Sports is, if anything, a distraction, and worth renting if friends are coming over.
  9. n-Revolution Magazine UK

    Not in the same league as "Wii Sports," but the curling and figure skating games here are worth playing. [Issue#22, p.68]
  10. Families seeking their next Wii-Sports fix will have some fun with this $30 budget title, but it hardly has the same polish of Nintendo's groundbreaking title.
  11. 50
    The problem is that three bad games plus six ranging from barely adequate to decent plus a final "pretty good" one doesn't add up to anything worthwhile.
  12. 70
    In the end, Deca Sports isn't a great title but it is a fun diversion that's sure to go over well with the casual Wii owner. [June 2008, p.85]

    ABORT ABORT ABORT MISSION ABORT!!!
    This game represent everything that is wrong with society today. I wanted to use my mii butt when I saw those rubbish wannabe miis I gagged! I can't believe these imbeciles created such a copy-cat dumb old rotten stinky game! AND DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE THEME SONG!!!! The controls are so BAD that it feels like the wii remote is a baboon trying to escape from my grip!!! If i had a nickle for every single way they copied wii sports, i'd be flying in my jet plane right now swimming in a pool of hundred dollar bills!!!!!!!!!! THe ice skating minigame is the 4th worst mingame i've ever played in my live. First of all, the music...yeah it sucks! Second of all, the controls are so wack, even if i slighty pivot my carpals, the "mii character" get's completely knocked off balance! The way they created the scenery for it is uninspiring as well! THe goe-cart game seems fun at first, but when you turn your wii remote just so slightlie my "MII CHARACTER" goes outta' bonds. **** THIS GAME MAKES ME SO MAAD!!! I HAD MORE FUN PLAYING DALMATIANS 3 THN THIS WASTE OF $50!!!! I WANT MY MONEY BACK YOU DUNDER HEADS! This game was so worthless that the one time I ran out of toilet paper I used the deca sports disc to wipe my Hiney .

    HATE IT!! I was thoroughly disappointed. I refuse to buy another wii game where you cannot use your miis. To me the whole purpose of theHATE IT!! I was thoroughly disappointed. I refuse to buy another wii game where you cannot use your miis. To me the whole purpose of the nintendo wii system was to get you moving with the realistic moves and all. There are just too many fake, cheesy copy cats games out there that put the wii name on it. It is sickening that these games are purchased and no way of returning them. I feel that the piblic is being conned. If Nintendo is putting their official seal on these games that do not live up to the initial wii sports game quality , then they will surely lose customers.
