There won't be many gamers out there that remember this one most likely. World Sports Competition is a game based on the Olympic Games, but without the official license. As to be expected the games are represented as a series of mini-games which you and...

This is a good game. I remember it fondly. Sports games like these are awesome in multi player

i know for like bomberman for 5 players you have to hook up the gc controller before the screen starts so i would assume that is how. on another note i always thought that the '92 Gold Medal games was my favorite Summer Olympic game.

For 5 player TG16 games on Wii Virtual Console you can use any combination of Gamecube controllers & Wii Remotes/Classic Controllers. You can't use a Wii Remote with the Classic Controller plugged in so you're limited to 4 players unless you have a Gamecube Controller. For 5 player Bomberman I used 3 GC controllers and 2 Wii Remotes.

I know I loved Decathlon, Track&Field, Summer Games and the like.
And this seems like the whole lot combined into one five-player-game.
it's a trigger-the-button-till-your-limit-game and has some
deeper gameplay in games like the firing-range as well. but overall it's very simple, that makes it a really good party game. that's surely fun!
i might it try it out if i'm in the mood and have enough players and wiimotes around.
4/5 Stars
Party Factor A xD

Personally I think Konami's Track n' Field is much more fun. It has a lot more character!

Great game but it is a little annoying in one player as you have to batter the controller to pieces to be able to come first. This is probably better in multiplayer. I would steer clear if you plan to play in single player only.

This game is bad. The worst thing about it is the news broadcasts. Apparently, it's dog-eat-dog at the Hudson Stadium everyday of the week 24 hours a day.

For 600pts we got carpal tunnel and a broken thumbs. The directions are minimal. Still can't jump over the high jump nor jump further than 11m on the 3xjump. Once we did get the hang of some of the events it made blisters on our thumbs. The shooting range was the best. NOT the Track & Field game from Konami and not even close to being fun. What a waste of pts, or money, whichever way you choose to view it.
