Calm Down Dear - it's only a game !
on 23 March 2008
This is just a little bit of fun on a rainy afternoon, it's not for serious sports fans. The other reviews slate this beyond belief, giving it less than an hours play. It's light and easy enough for Granny to play, but enough fun for the kids to give it some welly !
The main thing is the all the games are set in calm atmostphere, so if like me you cringe at the constant squeals and irritating soundtrack of Super Mario Charged Football this sequence of team and individual sports has a soothing easy going feel to it.
You earn tickets to unlock new games - however you only earn tickets in single player mode and this really is a family or group sort of thing.
We started with darts, loads of options from 301 through to 701 or cricket style challenge. Easy enough to master the throwing motion. Unlockable game is baseball darts - we've not got there yet.
Hoop Shoot - quite easy to master and a good 10 minute challenge.
Ping Cup, the only infuriating game, throw the ping pong into one of the cups, hmmm we just couldn't get this right.
Shuffleboard, we spent hours on this and it was highly addictive, curling is unlockable.
Skill ball, it's okay feels a bit like bowling on wii sports, once you master it it's simple fun.
Table Hockey - love this simple object of the game, made a little but harder with the slipperyness of the surface.
Only thing we haven't played is trivia, didn't have time after 2 hours.
For under £20 it's a good afternoons entertainment, not recommended for hardcore gamers.
