Deca Sports 2 arrives on Nintendo Wii from Hudson Soft, featuring 10 different sports in one game. Use the motion-sensitive controls to play a variety of sports including ice hockey, tennis, speed skating, ski moguls, kendo, synchronized swimming, dodge ball and more. With four-player support and online multiplayer, Deca Sports 2 wants you to spend some time with your friends, but is it worth taking a break from the Wii Sports Resort?

Décà View

You’ll probably feel like you’ve played a lot of these games before and that’s because, with a few exceptions, you probably have. The tennis is a dead wringer for the tennis game that came with Wii Sports for free and the kendo is a dull interpretation of the far superior Wii Motionplus enhanced fencing from Wii Sports Resort. None of the games are particularly deep or interesting, so while they may be fun at the start, I quickly lost interest in everything but the dodge ball. I haven’t played a dodge ball game since the Super Nintendo days and it was the most fun distraction here.

Online fun?

It came as a bit of a surprise that only three of the games in the package are playable online, but this isn’t one you’ll be playing online regardless. Deca Sports 2 is the kind of game you have around to play when your non-video game playing family and friends are over and you want to play something they can get easily into.

Don’t leave the Vacation

In the end, Wii Sports Resort offers a more robust package with better motion control and is more fun to play both alone and with company and is more deserving of your sporting dollar. If you must have every sport mini-game package out there however, Deca Sports 2 offers enough to keep you distracted for a little while.
