Summary

Eh...

The Good

Now, to be fair, this review is only slightly, oh-so slightly biased because, in all honesty, I HATE the Wii... well, the controller, anyway. I haven't played ANY Wii games apart from this, so hear me out, Nintendo fans. I don't hate the Wii as a whole, just the controller. It also doesn't help that I'm not a big Sports-game fan. So...yeah...

With that out of the way, I'll admit, the game isn't horrid. I just really, really, realllly suck with the controller. Plus, I don't like Sports games all that well. I can't really say anything else good about this.

The Bad

Well... it's a sports game. If you like them, good for you, but if I want to play football, I'll freakin' play football. If I want to play baseball, I play some OUTSIDE! Why, oh why, do people love playing outside sports inside?

But in all seriousness, let's talk about the game. The gameplay can range from boring to annoying. It couldn't really hold my attention for long, but like I said, not a sports game fan. Baseball is kind of boring, tennis can be real annoying at times, bowling is ok I suppose, and I forget/ haven't tried the other two.

The graphics are not very good. They are too childish and simplistic. The PS2 has graphics better than this. EARLY PS2 even! In my opinion, the whole Mii thing is really childish to begin with. But look at me ramble on about the least important thing in a game.

The control, for Wii Remote, at least, are all right, but can be kind of awkward at times. Perhaps it's my TV or placement, but I don't know...

The Bottom Line

I know this review sucks, but I can't really review a game in genre I don't even like to begin with. And to clarify, I am NOT a fan boy of Wii, 360, or PS3. That reward belongs to the Nintendo Gamecube.

Bottom line, if you like it, good. Just don't hate me because I don't like a certain genre.
