This is the first "Deca Sports" title I've tried. Unless something went drastically wrong on this one, I can't believe this series is popular. Compared to games like Wii Sports and Sports Resort, or even the Mario and Sonic and the Olympics Games titles, the control/character movements are horrible. I gave each sport a shot two times, over two days, and beyond that, it just didn't seem worth bothering with, so I sent it back. This is exactly the kind of game that explains why I have a GameFly membership. I would have been very annoyed if I had bought this game without trying it first.
