Backyard Sports: Sandlot Sluggers is a great game for younger audiences who are avid baseball fans or for newcomers who want to get a feel for how baseball is played.
I would like to start off by saying that the game’s graphics surprised me (in a good way). Also, the controls are easy to use, and the game has one of the best control layouts I have seen in quite awhile. Anyone can pick up this game, learn the controls, and begin to play in a matter of minutes.More »
There are two things I really like about FIFA World Cup. First, I like the graphics, because the players in the game look so real. It's almost like you're watching a real soccer game on TV. Second, the players show their emotions. For example, if your player commits a foul you can see him getting mad...More »
Monster Hunter Tri certainly is a very different gaming experience. But, for me, it was not a very good one. The most disappointing aspect of this game is the controls. I was using the classic controller, and every step required some weird confusing button combination or some awkward activity. And, when I finally thought I had the controls figured out, I discovered that half of the time they still were not operating the way I thought they were supposed to.More »
This game was awesome! I simply couldn’t get enough. You can play any of five sports. In tennis you can play singles or doubles. Beach Tennis is extremely similar, although obviously it is on the beach. Squash is almost like wall-ball, only with racquets. There is also badminton and table tennis...More »
Deca Sports is one of the best sports games that have been made for the Nintendo DS. Deca revolves around 10 sports: ping-pong, bobsledding, golf, rugby, cheerleading, arm wrestling, rock-climbing, clay-shooting, skydiving, and sepak takraw (volleyball). My personal favorites are rugby, bobsled, and rock-climbing. All of the sports (except two) are easy to learn. More »
Now THIS is a fun martial arts game. I love the way it’s set up: There are sagas with three levels that you advance through. Controlling the characters is very simple, which makes the game more fun to play. The way that you attack is very cool, too. I didn't care much for the graphics or the clip at the beginning of the game. The best part of this game is the lock-on. It will appear on flying objects, weapons, and enemies. When it shows up you can deliver a special attack, kick back the launched weapons, and do flips in the air to reach a high place. It’s awesome!
World of Outlaws: Sprint Cars is an interesting game, filled with action-paced racing and good customization. There are two main game modes: Arcade and Career. In the Arcade mode, a player can choose his or her tracks, the number of laps, and daytime versus nighttime driving. Career mode is where the fun begins. It has races located in different areas across the U.S. Each race has a regular and championship cup option, as well as other races. A player can earn money that can be used to buy parts for his vehicle. As you progress, you receive sponsors that will reward you with new cars and, ultimately, a payout for racing in their vehicle when the race is over...More »
