Game Review


USA USA Version

Posted by Alex Knox

What goes down must come back up in this gut-wrenching ‘sport’.

People have been competitively stuffing their gullets with exorbitant amounts of various foods for over a hundred years, but not until the release of Major League Eating: The Game on WiiWare has this activity been immortalised in a videogame. Now, before...

Major League Eating Coming to Japan Next Week

Looks like Nintendo Japan has been feeling a little awkward by showering download titles upon the Japanese population whilst Europe and North America have to make due with what's slowly rationed out to them. At last the jealousy can ease a little!

Next week only two releases, both of them WiiWare: Major League Eating -- 500pts (half the price of the US release!). This has already been released..

The game is set to be released in the land of the rising sun on October 14th. It comes with a change specifically for Japan: The characters representing Rich LeFevre and Juliet Lee will be replaced in favour of the Japanese Noboyuki..

Prepare To Eat Until You Belch On Monday

Soon our North American friends will be able to stuff their faces on a virtual feast as Major League Eating: The Game is up on WiiWare this coming Monday.

At first we were a bit dismissive of this game, but it actually seems to be shaping up to look like it could be a half decent game. Heck it’s even got online play and leaderboards. It certainly appears to be in a different league from offenders..

It's kind of the other way around with Cooking Mama, instead of cooking food...you try to scarf it down as fast as you can! Honestly doesn't sound too fun...but then again neither did cooking and that was fun in the end.

I can't wait to see a review on this because frankly I don't want to myself!



Atlantis1982 said:

Yes, Serpent, sadly this is meant for the Americans seeing that we like to indulge ourselves excessively instead of investing the extra, wasted food to those that really need it. These competitions make me sick to my stomach.



Fireballmario said:

If it is cheap I might buy this game, it looks kinda gross, but it might be a good game, Wario Ware is gross(so us Wario) but look at its ratings! So this could be a good game too!



KnucklesSonic8 said:

I thought this when I first heard about it way back and it bears repeating: What a useless title. Talk about playing on stereotypes. But yeah, the overall concept of the game is lacking at best.



Objection said:

It actually made me quesy when the chick threw up in the video. Granted its cartoonish, but still. Nothing makes me sick. I watch movies where people asplode and lose heads...but throwing up is gross. They should go off camera.



Terra said:

I have a bad feeling this is going to be priced somewhere around 800-1000 Points. Judging by the concept, i will probably give this game a miss



Quimby said:

Hey, cheer up guys.
Maybe its not all bad... It might be a North American exclusive!



mr_niceguy said:

While all I have to do is look around my school or my local gym to see where they are getting at with this game, and having actually seen an eating competition, I can say that they are quite exciting. Unfortunately, after seeing the video, this actually seems like a poor excuse for a game based on eating, and actually maked me lose my appetite.



Peznaze said:

I still maintain it'll do well. A glorified pie-eating contest with no bloating, no calories, no indigestion. It could do phenomenally well, it's got online play, even. What will make or break it is the price. I don't see a game with online play coming in under 1000 Wii Points, though... But it really needs to.



mr_niceguy said:

Yah, this is probably going to do good. In fact, I was excited for this game, until I actually saw the game. I hope everybody watches the Nintendo Channal video before they consider buying it(that's what it's there for folks), because it's probably gonna make or break(most likely break) their decision.



CanisWolfred said:

Dear G-D in heaven, I don't know if I've been more insulted in my life! This game plays on every stereotype known to Man! Not to mention how disgusting the video is! And I thought Beer Pong was a bad idea...



Peznaze said:

Ah, poor Mastiff. Nathan's Hot Dog Contest was one for the books this year. Joey Chestnut against Kobayashi... Tied at 59 dogs each, had to go to a 5-dog tie breaker... All over every newscast, too. Just like every year. Was the game available to capitalize on all this wondrous free publicity? Translate it into massive sales? Nope. Reggie decided it wasn't time to release it yet.



Outrunner said:

And with that, all thoughts of quality control went out the window. Seriously, is anyone at Nintendo even looking at this stuff? Or are they just slapping a label on everything and throwing it up for download no matter how cack it is?



calc_nerd said:

Gross enough just watching the hot dog contest on tv, let alone play the video game. WASTE OF MONEY!!



Peznaze said:

With what? The game crashes Wiis? Controls are unresponsive? Graphics glitchy? What about the quality of the game is uncontrolled? Or are you just complaining about the genre, the venue?



Mazero said:

I've actually asked WiiRevolution1 about if the game is crap and he says it's pretty decent. Probably better than Pokemon Ranch or Spogs Racing



Omega said:

Although the quality of the game (in terms of gameplay, graphics, controls etc.) may not be bad, it is simply the concept of food waste that some might not like. And somehow, I think it is nasty. But this is only my opinion. It is all apparently a matter of "taste". I have heard that there are millions of fans who watch MLE on TV. So it can not be wrong. Or can it?



poggydude said:


calling a game decent because it is better than mpc or spogs is like saying month old ham is better than dog poo
(now I don't know if the game is good or not but just because a game isn't bottom of he barrel doesn't make it decent)



WarioFan63 said:

Hey, I consider MPR to be like a bowl of croutons.



WiiMan192 said:

It's coming to Japan with new characters etc... so... does that hint that MLE: The Game will eventually come to PAL regions? If they are releasing it here, then new characters and customisations would explain the delays

I may be too optimistic about this. * Change of tone *

Argh!!! The agony! I now I'll never fulfill my life-long dream of stuffing my face with 16.4kg of crap! * cry *
