Summary: Game Party for the Wii consists of seven games: Table Hockey, Hoop Shot (a basketball type game), Darts, Skill Ball (really Ski Ball), Ping Cup (Beer Pong), Shuffleboard, and Trivia. Each game can be played by one player or up to four players. As you play you win "tickets" - these tickets unlock new players and bonus games. Air Hockey: This is a 1 to 2 player game. The first to score 7 points wins the game.
Summary: I just bought my Wii system a few weeks ago. My nephew has "Wii Carnival" but I bought "Game Party" instead because it was less than half the price. This game is "OK" but I wish I'd paid the extra money and bought Wii Carnival instead. There's a lot more to that one: the graphics are better, it has more character and more characters, and it seems more accurate. "Game Party" might be OK for young kids but as an adult I'd rather have better graphics and interactivity.
Summary: I had already tried this game at a friend's house, so I knew I would like it before I bought it. I don't like that it's not compatible with your already-created Miis. You have to use the ones with the game. But I like that there are several games on it, all already unlocked if I remember correctly. I like darts and shuffleboard a lot.
Summary: I picked this one up for $9.95 during a special over the holidays. For that price, it's not bad, and I would give it a middle of the road score for play and value. Any price over that, I would be dropping stars faster than a meteor shower because it is not that good. Here is the bottom line - there are some basic games that offer limited entertainment. If you are looking for loads of entertainment that will keep you busy for hours, look elsewhere and save your money.
Summary: i was really really really really hoping this game would have been better. the controls are very hard to get used to (if that's even possible). just not as easy to use as i was hoping and it would have been better to be able to use your own mii's.
Summary: Aside from the darts and shuffleboard, there is little replayability value in this game. Save your money and buy something else (even at $20). Darts -- you move the controller similar to throwing an actual dart. Once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy. Hoop shoot -- You'll possibly play this enough times to unlock the other features, but I doubt it... Ping cup -- after 15 minutes of playing, my 8-year old son and I gave up.
