Lacrosse GAME for the Wii!!!

Check it out, Lacrosse has actually made it to the Wii platform under the name of BIG LEAGUE SPORTS. Its one of 6 sports to choose from. Shame the game is getting ratings of utter crap. Oh well one step closer to EA. Made by Activision though, whom are known to make great games, like recently Shaun White Snowboarding

I remember this being metioned a while back, and looking pretty poor. BUt isn't there an actual MLL (?) game in the pipeline by someone...? I'm sure I've read about it somewhere.

anybody know if it is actually any good, because they could have just rated it poorly because they dont appreciate the game ;)

Well as it's a multi sport game, i'd imagine that the people rating it could "appreciate" some of the other sports included. I'd hazzard a gues at the fact it's probably a crock of sh...

That article was back in October 2007 though and nothing has been heard of it from what i understand, if they are, then on the 360 please.

I also emailed Activision inquiring about this game and i got no response. Woudn't hurt to try again

I saw this game in Tesco yesterday and couldn't resist.
£15 for 6 sports an 20+ games - Bargin
The thought of Lacrosse on the Wii, dodging, passing and shooting is great, I couldn't wait!
However I was disappointed.
There's 3 'lax' games.
1. Shooting past 2 defenders, where you can go left, right on an arc around the crease as two cumbersome defenders make their way towards you.
You have to get a shot off before they reach you. You can throw a fake to pause them for a second though.
2. Making a pass. Time a throw of the wii remote when your team mate is free. That simple. that boring.
3. Fast break, 1 on 1 with the keeper. All you have to do is wait till the guy runs to the crease then shoot.
You can shoot top corner each time and get a perfect score. bit pants really.

I think the reviews are right. It's a pile of Sh*te but it's a step in the right direction.
Some of the other games aren't bad. Basketball game has the most going for it.
I can see the game making a radical improvement with the addition of Alcohol and Mates.
