    The most frustrating thing about Deca Sports is that it's not bad -- just bland, uninspired, and of questionable value.
  2. Unless you have a young kid that likes all kind of sports and want a family friendly game then you could try this one, but there's others out there that are far better for the same price. Or you could just stick to Wii sports.
  3. The simplistic flick-your-wrist-and-sometimes-press-a-button interface is probably great for testing the motor skills of chimpanzees, but humans should do themselves a favor and use this same arm motion to fling this Hudson game into the Hudson River.
  4. In the end, Deca Sports comes off as a feeble attempt to compete with Wii Sports.
  5. Deca Sports tries to capitalize on the accessibility of the Wii, but what we're left with is a mundane product that only has a few average standouts; and paying for three mildly-fun games doesn't fit the bill, especially when there are better alternatives.
  6. Deca Sports is not even worth your money for a rental. You can play all the sports and grow bored with them within a half hour.
  7. Curling and figure skating, as engaging as they are, are not sufficient to rescue this sub-par package from non-league status. [June 2008, p.116]
  8. As tempting as a game with both badminton and curling may be, there's no reason to recommend Deca Sports.

    Two games out of the ten within Deca Sports are good – the rest, not so much. That's a 20% success rate for this compilation, so I think I'm being generous with my final score. Or maybe I just liked curling and archery that much.
  10. Sports Island could have been a great addition to the Wii catalogue, but sadly the lack of polish and emphasis put on fine tuning the controls drags it way below its potential.
  11. This is a game solely for those who want to waggle controllers for an hour and giggle; all other self-respecting gamers should just stay away.

    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.
