Everyone loves Wii Sports, and in Japan - where it isn’t bundled with the console - it has sold in excess of a squillion copies, or thereabouts. The latest contender in the quest to outdo Nintendo’s motion-sensing masterstroke, Deca Sports has gone for the ‘bigger is better’ approach - it’s packed with 10 fully fledged sports games, and if it plays as good as it looks, it might be a great value.
The list of events: volleyball, snowboarding, badminton, basketball, curling, figure skating, archery, supercross, soccer and kart racing. Hopefully they learned a thing or two from the horrid curling and figure skating in Winter Sports: The Ultimate Challenge.
It’s all exclusive to Wii, 100% motion-controlled, and includes training minigames and multiplayer action. The only negative point to add is that it appears to use “fake” Mii’s instead of the real deal. Anyway, look out for this one in the summer.
