Buy the original version instead.

Alan R "Alan R", Amazon

  • Summary: The sequel to Carnival Games comes to you complete WITHOUT the best feature of the original - competition mode. Whichever genius figured eliminating multiplayer game functionality and features in the sequel to this multiplayer oriented game was a good idea hopefully has his head on a stake. My family and I were really excited about getting this game until we got it and found that out.

Sold it in a garage sale already.

K. Slaback, Amazon
21 October 2013
  • Summary: It's too hard and requires such precise movements to get it right. My kids can't be successful at all, and even my husband and I get frustrated. And, just like another Carnival game we had, it takes too long to watch through all the corny animations to get to actually play. It's gone already - sold in a garage sale. We'll be avoiding this series of games from now on.

Short-Lived

Olivia D., Amazon
26 July 2013
  • Summary: I was looking for something to play with other people and bought this as an cheaper alternative to Mario Party games. My conclusion is that you get what you pay for. It was mildly entertaining for an evening but we were unable to unlock any other levels even though we played the levels it asked for over and over. 2 stars because it wasn't super expensive but if I had it to do over, I would've invested the money in a board game instead.

poor graphics and confusing

David Krupinski, Amazon
28 December 2011
  • Summary: Not only did it have poor graphics it didn't seem like the Wii remotes didn't worked properly with the games. The organization of the games are confusing. The games you play are short. Like you can throw 3 balls and then it's over. The whole thing could have been done a lot better. If another company took this idea they could make a terrific Wii game from it.

Only for very patiet kids

bookpurring "bookpurring", Amazon
30 September 2011
  • Summary: I was very curious about the fair kind of games, and some of them can be quite fun. However, there's too many menu's to exit or enter a game and I simply have no patient for it. Some of the games you just get three opportunities then you have to exit and come into the game again, it's exasperating, specially when you just want to keep playing.

Not as fun as I had hoped -controls, audio and graphics are quite poor

one-from-overseas, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: I got this hoping for some mindless fun, but I was rather disappointed. The graphics are poor, including the character. I chose the grown female, as that is what I am, and I was not pleased with the final result (which was the best I could come up with). But that in itself was not the problem.

A bit of a let down

M. Jones, amazon.co.uk
4 February 2011
  • Summary: Read reviews on this before I purchased. While they were helpful, they didn't quite prepare me for just what a let down this was. Not on a par with Mario Cart or Sport Resort. Probably fun for the young, but not me.

It's OK but not as good as the original.

Mr. S. Newbury "Galleons", amazon.co.uk
21 January 2011
  • Summary: My family got hours of fun from the original Carnival Games so we very much looked forward to the follow up but what a dissapointment. Only way to describe it is like comparing DVD Home Alone 1 and then watch Home Alone 3 - Poor Follow Up.....It does have a couple of good games but nothing to match the original set of games which had us all hooked.

Not as good as I was expecting

Jan, amazon.co.uk
28 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this as a fun game to play at Christmas with the family however it didn't live up to it's four star rating in my opinion. It came out of the box for a trial before the big day and it was so disappointing it never came out on the big day! Not worth the purchase.
