I wanted so badly to get the "feel" and hang of this game and learn to like it, but that never happened. I suppose if I wanted to lose about 100 games and spend an entire week 24/7 playing it, then I might get it. The controls are way too difficult to figure out. I can only hope that Wii's NHL Hockey (Sep 08)has way better controls. You'd think with a hockey game, you'd be able to pass, do slap shots, and get rebounds and such with just the movement of the main Wii controler. Not with this game. This requires use with the nanchuck. I hope the soon to be released NHL Wii hockey game just uses the main controler. This game had the basic decent old school nintendo graphics, but very slow play and is very difficlut to learn the confusing controls.
I would have rated this less than 1 if Game Fly would let me. This game as horrible graphics and even worse controls. My son and I popped the game in and started a game. We looked at each other and laughed. Within 2 minutes I turned it off and through it back into the mailbox to return to Game Fly.
The controls are so horrible I could never get into the game. The graphics were about as good Mike Tyson's Punchout.
