This game is gonna crash and burn. Wii Sports has a decent 'general' appeal. It's likable enough with the Miis that all ages and groups of people can enjoy it.

This has some of the worst art I've ever seen in a game. Most children will even be turned off by this.

The fact that EA is pledging support for the Wii was initially very encouraging, and SSX Blur is arguably the coolest version of those games yet, but if this is what they'll be providing in the future then they might aswell not bother. Like Jigen says, even kids are likely put off.

    Tinks I write off Aquaman because you're already dealing with one of the worst super heroes in comics. Then when you see the design for creatures/villains it sorta seals its fate. Though I do think (3 Hours ago)
