Deca Sports DS


I am not a big sports person. The basketsball that comes around confuses me every year. The football that depending on your country of origin that changes its name? BAH! It is all confusing. HOWEVER, I am not opposed to playing fun games based on...

You can change how your characters look + Nice variety of games + Makes you earn your difficulty + Liked the change ups in the controls for the games

The characters are kinda ugly - Some controls are finicky - Might not have enough in-depth sports action for some

Deca Sports DS works very well for casual players, but it might make the more serious players wanting for more. As a non-sports person I enjoyed the games that were presented and found the mix eclectic and wonderful, however the shortened versions of...

Finally, the Sepak Takraw simulator you've been looking for.

Wide variety of gameplay modes ; Large selection of sports ; Single-cart multiplayer for up-to-six players

Some of the games control poorly ; The only unlockables are higher difficulty levels ; Boring sound design

In the end, the amount of enjoyment you get from the game will depend largely on finding sports that you want to come back to over and over again. With 10 selections, it's likely that you'll find something that appeals to you, but if you only find a...

Deca Sports DS has a few interesting selections in it, but their lack of content keeps this collection of sports games from staying in the DS past the point of completion.

Deca Sports DS Nintendo DS Review


The game features a total of ten activities, which you can play solo or with friends (more on that later). The activities are Golf, Ping Pong, Sky Diving, Arm Wrestling, Wall Climbing, Rugby, Cheerleading, Sepak Takraw (a combination of soccer and...

You can play up to six people through one cartridge, some of the sports hit the spot (particularly Sepak Takraw), Challenges will keep you busy in single-player

Average presentation, some of the sports are more fun than others, no connectivity with the Wii versions

Hudson Soft has become a force in sports gaming, with its first two Deca Sports titles on the Nintendo Wii and, this month, its first release in the series for the Nintendo DS, aptly named Deca Sports DS. Granted, these are casual sports at best, so...

Review: Deca Sports DS (Nintendo DS)


The graphics are horrible, the music is horrible, and the game overall is… wait for it… horrible. I have yet to hate a game this much on the DS. The graphics look fuzzy with character features glitching in and out of existence, and the gameplay is...

Deca Sports DS


Hudson's Deca Sports series has been a solid (if unspectacular) supplement to the Wii Sports games on the Wii. They throw in more games, make the controls simple and focus on multiplayer. Unsurprisingly, they've now tried a DS installment. (Come on,...

Deca Sports DS Review


Lots of value, little strategy

Supports up to six players off of one cartridge, ping pong is well done, nice selection of modes

No real strategy needed for most sports, questionable controls for some sports, long loading times on download play

Deca Sports DS isn't a bad game, it's just not giving me everything I want. If you're giving me an opportunity to play something that I've never played before, like rugby, I want more insight into the sport than what the game is giving me. Certainly in...
