you need to get used to the controls before you can really appreciate the game. Give it some time if you gave up on it. 4 player action is the best though. Either 2vs2 or 4vsCPU. Its so much more engaging when playing with people. the multiplayer mini-game 2v2 (like street football) is really fun. We were playing it for about 3 hours straight. It can get intense. Falcons own in that mini-game. Its worth it I think. If my friend didn't already buy it, I would have.
