A twist on the spectacularly successful Wii sports genre sees SEGA, which has already reunited arch-foes Sonic and Mario in Olympic sports, bring 10 very strange events to the console.

What you want to know is, what are the 10 wacky sports of the title. Here's the answer:

Tuna Tossing.
Furniture Racing.
Fierljeppen (it's a traditional sport of the Frisians and of the Dutch that involves leaping over water using a pole!).
Extreme Ironing.
Card Boxing.
Lawn Mower Racing.
Cheese Rolling.
Mud Slinging.
Ice Golf.
Log Cutting.

So, as you can see, it's unusual and the game will take you all over the world from – obviously the Netherlands, via Australia, England and all points North, South, East and West in its crazy quest for a winner. This quest can be carried out in Tour mode, head-to-head, or in a fun four-person multiplayer mode.

You also get to play through via a dozen, you guessed it, weird and wonderful characters. These include four playable characters who face eight enemies and finally a very crazy indeed boss who has to be defeated in order for the player to reign supreme.

All of this madness is controlled using the Wiimote and nunchuck, so that even when the player isn't actually in action, they can watch their friends and family making fools of themselves.
