Fun game

on 1/24/2013

I bought this game thinking it will be weird to handle on the Wii. Well I was wrong, this game is really intuitive and lots of fun, one of the closes experiences to the old glorious ISSS of, and that's saying a lot. If you are a futbol (Football, as American Football should be called handball) fan and have a Wii, buy this game.
