In a nutshell: Curling! Plus nine other sports, I suppose.

0:00 I've been looking forward to this one quite a bit for one reason and one reason only: CURLING!

0:00.30 If and when you picture me writing this review, it's important that you include the stylish Deca Sports wristband Hudson sent me on my wrist.

0:01 "Evrah-bodeee, move ya bodeeeeeee," comes out of the speaker amid a driving bass groove. "Move move, left to right, slide slide... Life is like a dream." This is quite the ridiculous theme song. Check out the official Web site link above to hear it for yourself.

0:02 Straight to the "controls" section to learn how to curl! You hold down B to get a power meter bouncing up and down, then thrust the controller forward to start moving. Release B to, er, release the stone.

0:04 Twisting the remote before releasing it "curls" the stone to curve around blockers. Reminds me of Wii Sports bowling, where all the curve comes at the very end.

0:05 After release, other team members sweep in front of the hurtling stone to get it to go faster and straighter. This means shaking the remote like a madman, of course.
