One can't help but feel a bit deceived by Big League Sports. While its packaging doesn't explicitly state that the game offers the chance to play six actual sports, the screenshots on the back of the box certainly create that impression. The fact that you only get to try a few drills associated with each sport is undeniably disappointing. Many consumers will likely go pecking through all of the menus again and again, searching for a means by which they can actually play a game of basketball or start up a real soccer match rather than just practice performing slam dunks and juggling balls.

What's more, the rudimentary nature of the two dozen mini-games provided all but ensures that they won't hold your interest for more than a few minutes each. You can try everything the game has to offer in a little over an hour, and few of the games warrant revisiting (many don't even deserve a first visit, for that matter). The long and the short of it is that this is a third-rate sports compilation.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
