fun game, but multi-player is sequential, not at the same time
30 January 2012
Summary: My daughters really enjoy this game--there are about 20 different games built into it, so that is fun. On the negative side, multi-player is like bowling, one at a time, but the system records your score--it took quite a while and was very frustrating until I figured that out.
Summary: This is a great concept and based on the demo I bought it thinking how fun it would be to play mini-game after mini-game. I've played other Playstation light-gun games like this that were a ton of fun for two players at the same time. I've played Wario games on the Nintendo Gameboy that included 60-100 (I lost count) mini-games that were a lot of fun and I expected the same here for my $36. Start the party only has about 8 games.
Summary: Overall it is not a horrible game, just kind of boring and "kidish" at times. I can see how this could be fun for couples or at parties once in awhile but do not expect excessive playtime in this game. IMHO, it should be purchaesd to fill the "niche" it was designed for (it does accomplish that) but gets boring very quickly for 2 people and forget one person play (yawn).
Summary: Start the Party is essentially a mini-game package designed to be "family friendly" for the Playstation Move. The game can be played with up to four players at once, but it should be noted that you can only use one Move controller...you have to pass it along from person to person as their turn comes up. If you have played the demo (available for free on the PlayStation Store) you've pretty much seen what Start the Party is.
