Celebrity Sports Showdown Wii Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Celebrity Sports Showdown is a terrible concept for a game. It’s essentially a minigame collection, with ten playable famous people. On paper it sounds like nothing more than a quick fire way of making money from the mass market that makes purchases just based on the fact that there’s celebrities on the cover. In reality (that being outside of your head) however, it’s not as bad as one might think.

Celebrity avatars appear in fun sports compilation game.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is yet another collection of sports games to play on the Wii, not unlike Wii Sports although with more options. While it boasts of celebrity appearances, the stars do little more than act as additional characters you can select, so the advertising angle is surprisingly minimal.

Celebrity Sports Showdown (Wii) Review

Vooks
19 November 2008
  • Excerpt: As a disappointing opening for the new EA Sports Freestyle name, the vague comedic likeness of sporting and musical celebrities don’t save Celebrity Sports Showdown from being an underwhelming collection of sports themed mini games. In an unnecessary attempt to emulate the popularity of Nintendo’s already widely circulated Wii Sports, the 12 included game types provide little entertainment or satisfaction when demanding repeated play for any real value in a purchase.

Celebrity Sports Showdown

  • Excerpt: I’ve always wondered a lot of things. I’ve always wondered what it’d be like to sky dive. I’ve always wondered what swimming with dolphins would be like. I’ve even wondered what it would be like to travel into space – the final frontier. I have, on the other hand, never wondered who would win in a gladiator-style duel between Sugar Ray Leonard and Paul Pierce. I have never wondered what would happen if control to a jet was handed over to Nelly Furtado.

Celebrity Sports Showdown review (WII)

HonestGamers
12 November 2008
  • Excerpt: As for the actual celebrity roster, it doesn't do the game any favors. About half of them are washed-up athletes that you may or may not recognize, while the other half are generally successful pop and country artists. You've seen better line-ups gathered for VH1 specials making fun of stupid criminals and the 80s.

Wii Review: Celebrity Sports Showdown

Video Games Reloaded
7 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Celebrity Sports Showdown is without a doubt, the worst game that EA’s made this year. It’s almost as bad as More Game Party with its bad controls and lack of enjoyment; it’s a bit better but not much. Still I would suggest that everyone avoid this one like the plague.

  • Excerpt: When EA passed us a copy of Celebrity Sports Showdown for the Wii, I imagined the worst. I imagined a world where someone thought that putting the likes of musicians Fergie and Avril Lavigne into a SPORTS game would work. Frankly, I was scared. I had a wee shufty at a couple of reviews. They confirmed the worst. Groups of words such as “shaky controls” and “developers have focused on the celebrities and not the gameplay” sprung right out at me and confirmed it.
