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.
Summary: Overall, two out of ten sports is a terrible ratio. In baseball, Deca would be batting .200, which for those of you who may not know, is quite bad. The overall package shows a lot of promise, and even beats Wii Sports in a few areas. But when it comes down to it, for a multi-sport compilation to work, it has to boast simple, functional, yet fun games and Deca Sports only achieves that in a very small sense.
Pros: Curling can be quite fun., Archery offers a good challenge., More options than Wii Sports.
Cons: Most all other sports are bad., Sound is very basic., Graphics lack any style.
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.
Excerpt: When the Wii was released, everyone got a taste of what was to come as gamers got up from the couch to play their games. Packaged along with the console was Wii Play, a simple tech demo used to introduce players to motion-sensing and infrared controls. Ironically, the game remains one of the most popular titles for the hardware, even with its simplicity.
Summary: Like Wii Sports, Deca Sports is a collection of sports games with simple controls and equally straightforward presentation. Unlike Wii Sports, it's not free, some of the games control poorly, and only a few of them are really any fun when played with a group, much less alone. There's soccer, basketball, badminton, beach volleyball, motocross, archery, curling, snowboarding, figure skating, and kart racing.
Pros: Fun to play with friends, at least once
Cons: Controls are simple to a fault, Bizarre mix of "sports", Not fun for very long, Poor AI
