Summary: I highly recommend staying away from this game. I wanted to like it, but it just didn’t make the cut. If you’re in need of a fun minigame collection, stick to the first party titles for the time being.
Pros: -Game selection is varied and fairly unique., -Addition of Miis is a welcome addition., -Online play is cool when it works.
Cons: -Graphics are average at best., -Wiimote controls are as bad as it gets., -Online play rarely works., -Gets old very fast.
Summary: "Quantity over quality" defines what Deca Sports 2 is all about. While you seem to get good value for your money in the game's 10 included sports, the selection is decidedly weird and the remote-and-nunchuk control schemes range from average to awful.
Pros: Packed with sports and game options, Can be fun as a party game
Cons: Awkward control schemes, Almost all the sports are simplistic and repetitive

Summary: Parents need to know that this sports compilation game features a small amount of cartoon violence in the form of hockey checks and wooden stick fights, but that none of the characters ever appear hurt or in pain.
Summary: The game has a decent collection of mini-games for groups. The problem is so does Wii Sports, the main competition for this game. Plus, Wii Sports comes bundled in with the Wii for no extra cost. Overall, this is a game that is worth a look from groups looking for something new.
Summary: Perfect for the Wii owner who still needs some sports minigames to entertain themselves and their friends and family, Deca Sports 2 is a nice package with fun games for a nice price. For every mediocre experience I had playing it, there was an experience that was a total blast.
