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.

I feel inclined to agree, and add Boogie to that list of.... I dunno. I just don't know what EA are thinking. It's a bit embarassing even. They seem to have.. sort of made their minds up about what kind of demographic they should be shooting for, and they've hired a bunch of people to create a look, clinically devoid of emotion, for that exact market. That market being.. whoever finds characters on bubble gum wrappers appealing.

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.

    Moonwalker That free weekend convinced me to buy it. With the right team I enjoy it a great deal. If people go lone wolf I might as well quit. I do see this happening quite a bit. (13 Hours ago)
