  • Summary: [WiiWare] Forget about being healthy. Here's a game that celebrates eating, getting fat and fighting. Hold the Wii Remote controller horizontally and tilt it left, right, up or down to perform all kinds of lifts and throws just like in real sumo. There are also hidden moves like suplexes and scrapbusters thrown in for fun. Use all the moves you learn in tournaments around the world to reach the peak of sumo and become a yokozuna. In ONE PLAYER mode, play eating or sparring mini-games to make your wrestler stronger and change his look. You can also use your own Mii character's face on your wrestler. In TWO PLAYER mode, take on another person using default wrestlers or the wrestlers that you have created. (Additional accessories are required for two-player mode and are sold separately.) Chow down, bulk up and fight on to become the strongest sumo wrestler ever. [Nintendo] Expand

  1. There’s such a great sense of achievement here: from winning a bout without striking your opponent to defeating one of the upper-ranked Ozeki, you’ll want to always do your best. The fact alone that Eat! Fat! FIGHT! has been localised is amazing, and we applaud Temco’s efforts for making this title available.
  2. The real downer is the price, which is ludicrously sky-high for something so simple. [Feb 2010, p.73]

    It might be fun for a while to see your sumo grow in proportion and strength and rise through the ranks of the champions (especially after you unlock the Mii support option and put your own head on your wrestler's body), but there's only so long you're going to have fun with the same set of four brief mini-games.
  4. For a game that's so starved of content, 1,000 Points is a bit hard to swallow. [Feb 2010, p.89]

    despite the borderline stupid US publicity, the game is not all about fattening, in fact, you can make a muscular character as well, or just leave your character skinny, it doesn't make so much of a difference!
    This is my favorite wii game and for a reason, it's the best button masher fighting game out there! the training mini-games are part of it and can require some practice until you get them right, they keep the gameplay from getting too repetitive with breaks between tournaments. also as a lot of people pointed out the gameplay is pretty simple, but what you don't hear often is that it's incredibly deep too, it can get very strategic and intense at times!
    This game is part of the japanese series Tsuppari Oozumou, that has games for NES, SNES and PC ENGINE too, Tsuppari oozumou is known for being a great fun series and comedic as well.
    I've been playing it for about 4 years whenever I have some free time, and I will keep playing it until a new version comes out, this game is great for chilling.

    the only Con I have about it is that it's too hard to figure out the secret special finishing moves and Tecmo never released any kind of guide or anything.

    I'm looking forward to a 3DS port of this game.

    Fun and simple game: choose one of three mini-games to develop your sumo wrestler, then fight a few bouts in a tournament. Rinse and repeat. The fighting is not too simple and not too complicated: requires an intelligent form of button mashing. Most importantly: fighting the bouts captures the sumo feel I know from watching it on tv. So if you're into sumo, certainly worth the buy. Expand
