I will admit I was very dubious when I first played this game and would have agreed with the many people's previous reviews in it not being that good. But for some reason I started to enjoy it and i think the reason was because it plays better when you are against human opponents. It isn't the best game in the world but it does offer enough of a challenge to make it worth while buying especially as Play.com are offering it at half price. Therefore if you are wanting to have an entertaining game for a group of friends to play it is worth the money.
There are 6 games in total. Boules seems very basic but once you start playing trying to get the points to win can be very tricky and requires a certain amount of skill. Often the match comes down the last ball and its this changeability that makes it more fun.
One of the most enjoyable games is Disc golf which requires you to do a throwing motion with the wii remote to throw a Frisbee and try and get it into the basket in as fewer shots as possible. Like golf there is a set limit of throws to complete the course in (ie par 3, 4 or 5). This is fairly easy to get the hang of and can be a bit of fun especially when the wind takes hold of it or you give the throw a bit too much and it sails of into the sunset (and out of bounds).
The volley ball is great fun although a little basic, but it is still fun to play. Cricket again can be fun as it requires you to take turns bowling and bating. You will need a bit of space for this one but it gives a good level of interaction trying to bowl out the other team, or hitting a six and making a run. If the other team is making a run and you pick up the ball you can try and throw them out which can be great.
American football was a little more difficult to understand and this is probably the most difficult to get to grips with. Normal Football which again requires a little more effort to get to grips with is OK after you sort out the controls. I scored a cracking header with this game so I do kind of like it even though it is a bit basic.
The ability to customise your characters, earn more points and even create a face using a DS is a great feature and keeps your interest that little bit longer. If you are having some friends around give this game a go, you might be pleasantly surprised.
