ESPN Sports Connection
ESPN Sports Connection is impressive. This
Wii U home console video game includes six sports. There is Baseball,
Football, Soccer, Tennis, Golf, and Kart Racing. All these are above
mini games, but below a full game of the sport. Combine them all into
one disc and families will get their moneys worth.
The first thing that stick out about ESPN Sports Connection to me is the graphics. This is one beautiful looking Wii U game. I noticed neat little details like the grass, and water. Ubisoft has some great visual effects in ESPN Sports Connection. This Wii U game is so bright and colorful.
The music in ESPN Sports Connection is upbeat, exciting, and dramatic. I felt like playing more games after winning. There are a ton of achievements in ESPN Sports Connection. Which came as a surprise to me. I loved acquiring as many achievements as I could. You can bean a batter in Baseball for an achievement. I did so by accident.
The controls in ESPN Sports Connection are masterfully created. The inclusion of the Wii U controller is perfect. I loved moving it around with the glove to catch the ball in Baseball while fielding. Regular Wii Remotes can be used for additional players. One of the things we did here at Family Friendly Gaming was have one player play offense, and another play defense. That way controllers did not need to be swapped.
Most of the games in ESPN Sports Connection can be played on the Wii U controller. The Golf game is the one exception. That reminds me, families need the Wii Motion Plus controllers to play with ESPN Sports Connection. I ran into an error with the game not able to use an older Wii Remote.
Families can have a great time with ESPN Sports Connection. The six different sports are diverse enough to interest a wide array of family members. I really enjoy Baseball, Football, and Kart Racing in ESPN Sports Connection. Those are my three favorites. Tennis and Soccer are decent. I am not good at the golf game - I had problems gauging distance. Maybe with some practice I will improve.
Families should be able to enjoy months of game time out of ESPN Sports Connection. The modes, achievements, and atmosphere are all super. ESPN Sports Connection is one of my personal favorite Wii U launch titles. It was obviously created with families in mind.
