SPORTS CHAMPIONS 2
Sport. It’s the backbone of our vast great nation of big brown land.
Well, with little green circles dotted about so that we can play...
Sport! It’s the Australian way. If ya don’t like it, you must be a
bloody poo... WHOA!
OK, erm, yes, uh, cheers for that. Why the fuck did we get Sir Les
Patterson in as guest intro writer?
Eww, there’s dribble all over our keyboard! Icky-icky-icky!
Anyway, sport’s something that many Aussies are passionate about.
So, this compendium of six sporting endeavours, able to be played
from the relatively non-green circleness of your living room, should
have widespread appeal.
Obviously a sequel – well, unless you’re used to first release
thingies having a ‘2’ jammed on the end - familiarity is the safe
word. We were intrigued at how the first
veered a tad left of centre in its sporting endeavour selection, and
that’s been smacked down. Tennis, boxing, bowling – sound familiar?
Yep, that triumwiirate’s here, bolstered by another go at archery (’cos
it rocks), skiing and something else. Umm... shit, what is it?
Rustle! Rustle! Oh yes, flog. But backwards.
Able to be played in various solo modes or with friends – but still
not online - Sports Champions 2 continues the series’ vibe
– if you can call two releases a series - in that it with Move well
work does it. Unlike our ability to sentence constructs.
Want hardcore tennis,
flog? There are better alternatives. After better archery?
You’re shit out of luck. However, they’re all eminently playable –
actually, that’s crap, the boxing sucks. OK, they’re almost all
eminently playable, especially by most anybody capable of grasping a
big black shaft with a glowy orb on the end of it. Although we
suspect it’d work better with two...
Dirty, dirty old man!
