Not as fun as the board games...

John Dark "flatcat", Amazon
12 July 2008
  • Summary: Overall, this would be a good game for a party with a bunch of teens and older who have a Wii. The Wii gamplay does not much factor into the success (and failures) of this game. In fact, for the few cool uses of the Wiimote, there are equally frustratingly hard to learn motions that would make it hard to do this in a large party setting. My real concern is that the questions are much too adult for most kids to play, but there was no indication of that on the box.

Limited replay value

Reagan Boone, Amazon

  • Summary: Rent this game before purchasing it. I believe this game detracts from the Cranium brand's value. Several of the "minigames" are sub par, and the interface is distracting at times. The goggles could be a neat gimmick, but the implementation of the hidden word makes it somewhat easy for players to cheat. Also, the minigame that instructs you to act out certain actions with your back turned to the TV is nearly impossible.

So much potential, but so poorly done

Cap8, Amazon
14 December 2007
  • Summary: A Cranium game for Wii has so much potential, but this is probably one of the most disappointing game/entertainment purchases I have ever made. One of the most frustrating aspects of this game is the lack of ability to choose which mini game you would like to play and play them again if you would like. To play the game, you are forced to spin a wheel that randomly selects a mini game, and that's the mini game that you must play.

Stick to the Board Game

Trudgeley, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I bought this because I am a fan of the board game and owning a wii, I thought this would be a good combination, as youngsters can play it too. However I am very disappointed because it is temperamental, ie, sometimes the wii remote works ok with this game, sometimes it doesn't (only with certain tasks). I will be sticking with the board game which is much more fun as far as I am concerned.

A Bit Blasé

Coffee, amazon.co.uk
25 January 2008
  • Summary: Let me start off my saying that I've never played the board game of this, but the Wii game was selling reasonably and I thought I would add it to our collection. A downer, for starters is that the game only uses one remote, since it is made for team play, it gets a bit annoying have to keep passing one remote between all players. That aside, the drawing is not as impossible as some reviews have made out, you just need to adjust the sensitivity of your Wii Remote.

Kinderspiel ohne Kinder

Yopi
10 January 2010
  • Summary: Das Spiel hat mich, ehrlich gesagt, enttäuscht. Zum Beispiel kann man das Spiel nicht alleine spielen, noch zu zweit. Man braucht mindestens drei Spieler. Als das Spiel gekauft wurde, wurde eigentlich mehr auf die Altersangabe geachtet, man wollte das ja auch mit den Kleinen spielen. Aber weit gefehlt: Es kommen Begriffe vor, die noch nichteinmal allen Erwachsenen geläufig ist - und jetzt mal ehrlich: Woher soll ein Kind von ca.
