I'm disappointed at what a black hole of cynicism this whole site -- community included -- has become. Not defending the game, but it's clear you popped in yet another kids game simply for purposes of making fun of it, which of course all the GB fanboys will lap up in the comments. You guys might be getting too old for this.

I would've loved to love this game. As it is, it's just not very good. The controls are abjectly confusing and it doesn't use the Wii motion controller in any necessary way. It's responsiveness is very bad.

"Kid's game" doesn't have to equal "bad game." ESPECIALLY NOT WHEN THE PREMISE IS SO GOSH-DARN ADORABLE.

I was really hoping to see one of the peeing touchdowns or an interference with squirrels, like it's suppose to :(

The tourettes outburst at Fur-st Down was hilarious :D

@bko: I love your cynical assumption that they'll make fun of the game because it's for kids, not because it's actually a terrible product.

@louiedog: The community is a mix of whiners, cynics, crabs, people who repeat Bombcast jokes ad nauseam, and creepy people who send the guys gifts because they don't have friends of their own. Why would I want to be a part of that?
My biggest problem with this community is the incessant repetition of bombcast jokes.  LOL ZOJIRUSHI GUISE. 
 
Other than that, I am perfectly ok with making fun of this game.

This game doesn't look completely terrierble, might see if I can russell up some extra cash for it once I've finished Collie of Duty.

If I was wearing more than boxers at the moment, then I would go pick this up right now. I'm a real wii shovelware hound, so I'd probably love a piece of shih tzu like this. My friends (Jack, Russell, and Terry) and I have sort of gotten a collection of bad wii games going. There's just something charming about their pugly graphics. I buy pretty much any game I can get my paws on. Then again, I think my attention spaniel is a little too short for such a detailed game of football. Besides, it just rained and I'd hate to step in a lingering poodle and get all wet on the way to the store. I guess I'll wait for it to hit the barkgain bin. Or I could borrow it from my neighbor, Bernard. He's a real saint, so I'm sure he'll let me.
 
What a bunch of dirty, rottweilen puns.

For everyone giving them shit about covering kids' games, please remember that it's August. Also, I think their interest for this game started at E3 where, if I remember correctly, it was brought to their attention by some aggressive PR people.

Burst out laughing when I saw the formation of dogs! As amazing as I'd hope it would be.

It's awesome when there's no games coming out, we get quick looks like this.

It's a Wii game clearly geared for kids... Let's have Rorie on talking about licking ass and nutsacks!

Those controls are unfortunate. Like, who's going to play this game? People who probably don't play a lot of complicated games. So make the controls easy and straight forward. And maybe responsive. Responsive would be good.

I feel like I need to acknowledge this comment because clearly some effort went into it, so someone should, but that doesn't mean you're not a bad person for making it.

I don't know why but I would give this game a try

Scottish team with a 4 leaf clover and predominant green colour?...

Of course Matt Rorie is involved in this. Of course.

How many puppies does he give this game and which ones does he eat up first?! Now to watch the video and find out...

I know the Game's attempt at dog puns was half hearted at best, but I can't believe it didn't use Arf-Time.

There's no reason for this game to require Wii motions. I would've had a much better time holding the controller sideways and using it like that.

This isn't a game for kids. It's a game for anyone dumb enough to buy it.

I'm fairly certain that the Rock N'Bark Arena is the same arena from that ...On Ice! episode of Fairly Oddparents.  
 
The Scottish guy's song is just a really bad version of Animal Collective's "My Girls." Christ.

Yup. Or if the "guiding the dog with a treat" is that important to them then at least just make the A button hike, pass, kick and everything else. The awkward motion control is just so reminiscent of all the bad, early Wii games. I had thought devs realized it was a bad idea to force the motion controls but guess I was mistaken.

Or maybe if you have a big football name on the game that person's main input is to "make it feel like you're really throwing the ball".

It's a ubiquitous and stupid typo which is so easy to learn to fix and yet people seemingly get away with it.

Also, why clovers? They're not even four-leafed either.

Probably because it's easier to ignore then it is to get upset about.
