Reception[edit | edit source]

The Wiiviewr, a user on Youtube who reviews Wii games, reviewed this game and made a 23-second review of it. He called it the worst game he reviewed in 2009. His entire review stated: "This has gotta be one of the most BORING games i've ever played. They put the least amount of effort into making this game, so I figured I'd do the same with this review. The publishers took a somewhat interesting concept for the game, and made it completely dull by keeping it to simple. You should skip this game, because it SUCKS."
