Summary: The ideas are solid. The game could have been solid. But, unfortunately, it ended up a wreck. I usually play this with two other people - and given an hour of playing, I'm guessing that at least half of that overall time is spent watching the game do animations and transitions and cutesy other stuff that simply isn't fun: I want to play games! Then, to top it off (at least for me), one of the "games" is along the lines of: choose a bush to hide behind.
Lacking the originality and replayability that the original Wii party and Nintendo land have
30 November 2013
Summary: I had Wii party for the original Wii which was a blast and I was expecting the same fun with this iteration. But sadly, this version of Wii party for the Wii u just didn't seem as fun. The games are plenty and some are intuitive but the ingenuity and originality that I saw with Wii party and even Nintendo land for Wii u did not seem present in Wii u party. My sister and I played this just a few times and now it's sitting on the shelf and collecting dust.
Summary: Having played mario party and the previous wii party games we bought this for one of our 'wii nights' the added controller was a bonus as our old ones are dying a slow death.. Anyway .. So first impressions reading the case we thought it would be a hit for the group but the views changed very quick. I know the mini games are mini games but they last 10-15 seconds if that, you spend more time waiting for it to load.
Summary: The games range from mediocre to terrible. Just about worth it because of the Wii u Remote Plus I guess, but you wouldn't be missing much if you saved yourself a couple of quid and bough a Wii U Remote Plus by itself.
Summary: We loved wii party but this really does not do anything different and is in fact worse. The gamepad is utilised but not to great effect. My daughter got really fed up at the random element of the board games where you constantly get sent back to last place (more than the previous one). The proof of the pudding is whether your kids want to play it and my 9 year old daughter loved the last wii party but really doesn't want to play this.
Summary: Au moins deux joueurs sont nécessaires. Les jeux à pratiquer seul sont plutôt pauvres. Un peu déçu, d'ailleurs, mon enfant a joué le lendemain de Noël puis a délaissé la Wii U. Finalement les parents qui auront espérés pouvoir occuper un seul enfant pendant un moment reviendront sur ce choix.
