Major League Eating: The Game (WiiWare World) review

People have been competitively stuffing their gullets with exorbitant amounts of various foods for over a hundred years, but not until the release of Major League Eating: The Game on WiiWare has this activity been immortalised in a videogame. Now, before you ask yourself whether or not you'd want to try a game about something as repulsive as filling your stomach to the point of near-violent regurgitation; consider that there are few sports with a greater need for a virtual replication than competitive eating. Since there is an absolute limit to the amount of food a body can ingest in any given time, potential competitors need alternatives to prevent the probable physical and financial cost of over-training. In this sense, Mastiff has attempted to do a service for gurgitators everywhere by releasing MLE on WiiWare.

MLE is as much of a fighting game as it is about competitive eating. Much like Street Fighter, the game is all about picking a fighter/gurgitator and going head to head in battle. However in this case the goal is to stomach more food than your opponent or force them to regurgitate within the two minute bouts. There are a total of ten characters from the real life Major Eating League to choose from, each has varying skills, strengths and food of choice. The various skills improve your characters ability to cram food faster, keep food down longer, chew quicker, or settle the contents of their stomach easier. This lends a fair bit of strategy to the choice you make when picking a character depending on the type of skills you might need for a given task. Once you've selected a character you'll put their digestive system to the test in a series of competitions against the CPU or a friend. You can even take your battles online with the Wi-Fi connection mode against friends or strangers.... ( Major League Eating: The Game, Wii) 6/10
