I really enjoyed the hell out of this game but it made my Wii freeze several times.

roblef3369d ago

So excited that this is as good as I'd hoped. Maybe even better!

This might actually be a reason to bust the Wii out of storage. It's so lonely.

For a game that on the surface seems like a cheap Wii cash-in, I'm surprised at the critical reception on this one. Bravo, EA.
