Deca Sports shipped today for the Wii, a 10-sport game exclusive to Nintendo’s console that plays off the popular Wii Sports model. Deca Sports is available on the cheap, too: it retails for just $29.99
Combining 10 sporting events into one game, players can compete in beach volleyball, snowboard cross, badminton, basketball, curling, figure skating, archery, supercross, soccer and kart racing.
All 10 sports support both single and multiplayer modes. Up to four players can compete on one system and in several events, can play cooperatively on the same team. Single-player modes include Open Match, Tournament (one sport competition between eight teams), Deca League (10-sport decathlon between eight teams) and Deca League (time/point based challenge mode).
Team and player management is an important aspect in Deca Sports, as certain players are better at certain sports than others. In the Deca League mode, gamers must even manage their players’ fatigue levels through the competition.
Deca Sports supports the Wii Remote in all games, and the Remote/Nunchuk combo in three of them. Among the controls open to players are power spikes, curls and mid-air tricks.
