Summary: To contrast the other review giving this game a terrible review, I thought I would post for those seriously considering buying it. No, I did not buy from Walmart but wanted to better inform those who will. The game looks great on the Wii U with the characters looking nearly identical to those on the show. The voice acting is also spot on with the show and for those with young daughters (or sons) who watch the series this game is sure to entertain.
Summary: What can I say, the Barbie website has fun and exciting games and mini shows of life in the dream house. How they can make such a boring and unexciting game for wii u or any console is beyond me. My daughter played it for a couple of hours and has already put it down to play anything else. She loves Barbie but this game just has them running around a room looking for items and then doing lame dance offs.
Summary: For $40 this game is terrible. The graphics look as if playing on a 1990 game system. Each room you enter has the same task of finding an object and leaving it on a pedestal. At least the minigames vary from room to room and but prove not much more of a challenge. My 5 year old daughter became bored by the third room once she realized that they were all the same.
Summary: My lil girl will be 5 end of May, with all this technology today THESE kids are AMAZINGLY SMART!!! Xmas was all of these Barbie Girls and EVERYTHING For the matching accessories, it was a very big Xmas for her this year, she literally took over the house with EVERYTHING BARBIE,AND ALL MY SHOPPING WAS DONE BY AMAZON!!!! I would of paid a FORTUNE IF I WENT ELSE WHERE!!!

Summary: My 7 year old daughter loved most of the mini games and the story. For the price I paid (19.99), it was a good value. I would urge others to not pay more than that though as the replay value is good but not great!
If you are a true fan of the webseries, you will enjoy this game. Anyone else, be wary

Summary: Barbie Dreamhouse Party is a videogame adaption of the Popular Webseries "Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse". Let me just say this, Parents, If you are buying this for your daughter (or son :) ) just because they like Barbie, you are making a mistake. They need to at least be familiar with the show in order enjoy this game. I say this because the game acts as an episode to the series and caters solely to the crowd that watches it.
Summary: After paying $30 for this for my young daughter, it proved to be a pretty bad game, full of bugs and very boring game play. It was almost as bad as Monster High for Wii U, which is arguably the worst game ever.
