Excerpt: I really enjoy getting to play, and review games like Hasbro Family Game Night 2 on the Wii. This family friendly title contains Operation, Jenga, Connect 4x4, Bop It, and Pictureka. All of these translation easily to the Wii.
Excerpt: When Hasbro Family Game Night was released last year, I thought it was a nice collection of famous Hasbro games, with the classic rules intact along with some alternative ways to play each game. This sequel follows the template of the original, although EA didn’t stop there.
Conclusion: Some parents with kids who really like board games and video games may find some value in this one-the whole package is only $40-but I would wager the number of children that want to play with a virtual Bop It! is probably pretty low.

Pros: A fairly decent multiplayer compilation, Vibrant visuals, For the most part, senseless remote-waving is kept to a mininum
Cons: No online modes, Some games will be played more than others., Not as fun playing on your own
Summary: I honestly didn't think that I would enjoy playing non-physical versions of these games but I was pleasantly surprised with them. That said, I would always choose the physical versions of the game for the sheer pleasure of the set up and eventual put away!
