Here We Go (You'll hear those words a lot when you play this game)
4 January 2011
Summary: A game meant for older button mashers - takes a lot of getting used to but is actually pretty fun once you understand how the games work. I got this as a Christmas gift that cost $20 from my friend. I would not recommend this game at that price. But for $10 or less, this actually isn't as terrible as everyone makes it out to be, particularly on a Wii system that lacks a lot of fun "party games" in the vein of Mario Party.
Summary: Poor graphics, computer players always more successful than humans, minimal instructions that aren't clear, cannot play without computer players if less then 4 HUMAN players, very frustrating because the remote does not always respond appropriately...wouldn't waste money on this product or 90 Great Games Party Pack (30 Great Games is included on this game) and Family Party Fitness Fun...they are by the same publisher (D3) and have the same frustrating features.
Summary: It would have been nice to know that you only get half the games unless you are skillful enough to unlock the other half. Some of the games are hard and frustrating but you have to play them if you want to unlock anymore. We have been trying for almost three weeks and still have not been able to unlock any other games.
Summary: Perhaps it's just because my family and I are not coordinated enough, but we all found this nearly impossible to play. For example, in one game, you are reqired to shake the wii remote back and forth while pressing both A and B. At just the right time, you must release A and then press A again a split second later - while still shaking the remote and pressing B - you have to let go of B later in the course at just the right time, but I never made it that far.
Summary: I agree with most of the other reviews of this game. It seemed like a great idea at a great price, but the games are simply too hard to play with the working of the remotes impossible to master. I'm usually a pretty good gamer, but I have tried each of the unlocked games many times and have only been able to come in first on two single games, one time each and have never been able to get on the podium with anything but "failed" as my reward.
Summary: There are reviews at: familyfriendlygaming, gamechroniicles, gamespot, IGN & gamevortex. all give medicore scores. all agree the graphics have nice details, but having ALL gameplay in 4 quadrants even in single player mode is annoying, lazy & makes it hard to see. the instructions are vague but the controls are complex. I found the controls to be interesting complex like an old arcade game, but I couldn't understand what they wanted exactly.
Summary: Don't buy this game unless you have tons of time to beat the system. If you can't beat the system then you only have 15 games to play not 30. This is not recommended for children. Really too hard. Company should allow you to get to the other games even if you can't beat the first ones.
Summary: I bought this when I first got my Wii because I wanted to have some variety...and play something other than Wii Sports for awhile. This game was a great deal, I thought, at 30 games for $20. I've got to say...the game WAS kind of fun...but only because everyone was shaking their controllers like crazy and failing over and over again. It's difficult to get the game to do what you want it to do.
Summary: Kids got this for christmas (12, 10, 7). Played it once and then tossed it aside. They said it was weird and really not any fun. I think they need to give it another chance but they are not interested. We saw it at the store for $20.00 and daugther 10 said "Well, what do you expect from such a cheap game?" Since when is $20.00 cheap? I think it is not user friendly enough.
