OK, so I’m a huge fan of multi-event Olympic-style titles, I have been since the classic days of the Epyx Summer Games series that spanned multiple platforms and had all sorts of funky iterations. In the case of the Instant Sports take on those classics the idea is pretty much to marry those types of varied events with waggle-riffic motion controls ala Wii Sports. The result is a bit all over the place, with some events like Archery at least being interesting and track events that are sometimes the bane of my existence are handled with some care. Other events like Kayaking are a bit on the wonky side, like Baseball are downright too simplistic, and like the Javelin throw just mechanically aren’t very well explained and take some work to appreciate. Put it all together with a menu system and interface that are clunky to say the least and while I’ve certainly played worse compilations of this kind it’s not going to give any Triple-A titles a run for their money and you should exercise caution in getting your hopes up for this being a roaring success for you and your friends to enjoy.
