Excerpt: Hudson has another hit on their hands with Deca Sports on the Nintendo Wii. This game includes Basketball, Soccer, Badminton, Archery, Kart Racing, Supercross, Beach Volleyball, Figure Skating, Curling, and Snowboard Cross. A few of these may seem strange, but they work brilliantly in this compilation package. The best way I can describe Deca Sports is Wii Sports maturing to the next level. Players will want to pay attention to the controls as they change with the game.
Summary: Parents need to know that Deca Sports is a collection of accessible sport simulations. It's good, clean fun for the whole family, and can be played in groups of up to four players. It provides a diverse selection of playable athletes from which to choose; both genders are represented, along with varying body types and races. Younger players may glean some insight into the rules and objectives of a few relatively uncommon sports, including curling and archery.
Excerpt: Deca Sports is an aptly named game because it gives you ten sports in the style of Wii Sports, minus the Miis. With archery, badminton, basketball, beach volleyball, curling, figure skating, kart racing, motocross, snowboarding, and soccer all crammed onto the disc, it seems like Deca Sports is a great bargain packed with games. Unfortunately, 'seems' is the operative word here as Deco Sports goes for 0 for 10 in the fun department.
Excerpt: With the 2008 Summer Olympics just around the corner, several publishers have sports-based games on the way in an attempt to cash in on the craze. Hudson has taken it one step further, as
looks to also capitalize on the relative lack of simple sports titles (but not mini-game games) since the system launched with
. But is it any good?
Summary: Deca Sports, known in some parts of Europe as Sports Island, is an athletic offering, pulling together ten sporting events and pushing the player to their limits, fully using the Nunchuk/Wiimote to control your Mii like characters, including multiplayer.
Summary: Sure, Deca Sports isn't anything revolutionary for the Wii and it lacks some of the polish of Wii Sports, but it does do some things right. I think a sequel to this game could probably fix some A.I. Issues, and at the least, improve on some gameplay mechanics and graphical quality but still, the game is pretty fun if you play the right sports. Single player isn't bad but multiplayer is pretty good.
Excerpt: The Wii has been a huge hit with its interactive sports games. Hudson Entertainment gets in on the action with Deca Sports for the Wii. With Badminton, Beach Volleyball, Super Cross, Basketball, Archery, Soccer, Snowboarding, Figure Skating, Kart Racing, and (of all things) Curling, Deca Sports covers athletic events from the mainstream to the obscure.
