Start the Party

Family Friendly Gaming
7 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I wondered why the Playstation Move never really caught on. After all it was better than the Wii Remote. Sure it was not as good as the Kinect, but it should have resonated. Start the Party is the perfect example of what Sony did wrong. They make a “family” game, but they make it edgy, offensive, and to try and entice hardcore gamers. Here is the problem, hardcore gamers won’t touch Start the Party because it is not full of disgusting content.

  • Excerpt: It seems that December is the season of the PlayStation Move and SONY have just released another Move titled with Start the Party! Save the World! Developed by Supermassive Games, this title is another casual collection of mini-games that offers players the choice of either single or multiplayer gaming. With that said, the PlayStation Move controller and the PlayStation Eye camera is needed to play the title which as we all know is a staple of this genre.

Start the Party! Save the World

Square-Go
8 April 2011
  • Excerpt: How big can a mini-game get before it’s no longer a mini-game? Are the rounds of Wii Sports too long to be considered mini-games? Or is it a narrative thing? Does having a plot connect the mini-games make them more traditional levels? The plot of Half-Minute Hero tied together its 30 second levels, but as each level featured similar gameplay it might not be considered a collection of mini-games.

Start the Party Review

PlayStation Universe
15 November 2010
  • Summary: Start the Party offers a small set of mini-games designed to draw you directly into your television. While it may provide some fun for a small gathering of people, there are not enough mini-games to make you return for a second round.
  • Pros: The fact it makes good use of PS Move, Being able to see ourselves in the game, literally, The multiplayer mode can prove somewhat enjoyable
  • Cons: The severe lack in number of mini-games, Only one person can compete on screen at once in multiplayer, The limited replay value

Start the Party! PS3 Review

Console Obsession
30 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Sony’s new PlayStation Move motion controller could be literally turned into anything that a developer wants to be in your hand inside your TV screen. Take Supermassive Games as an example, they wanted you to brush a crocodile’s teeth, so they have the game placing a toothbrush in your hand; they wanted you to wave flags and ring bells, well, they both appear in your hand too. This is all thanks to something that Sony calls augmented reality.

  • Conclusion: You can't go far wrong for some cheap multiplayer laughs with Start the Party! but there simply isn't enough long-lasting content to warrant the asking price.

GameTrailers
1 September 2010
  • Excerpt: If you want in on this soiree, you might want to check your inhibitions at the door. Start the Party's offbeat selection of over 20 mini-games places you directly in the spotlight to compete for points alone or with friends. Is this one party you can't afford to miss? You can play Start the Party by yourself, or face the onslaught of mini-games in a group.

A Minigame Collection That Will End Your Party

Game Informer
1 September 2010
  • Conclusion: Concept: Make a minigame collection centered on new hardware and augmented reality Graphics: The graphics and presentation are overly cartoony, but still look good Sound: Make no mistake, you will want to kill Start The Party’s obnoxious announcer Playability: The controls are often stupidly simple, but at least they’re responsive Entertainment: The use of augmented reality is admittedly entertaining, despite the shallowness of the gameplay Replay: Moderate
