Summary: The game is somewhat fun. It has board games that are great for the family. The backround images are distracting and can't be turned off. The music can get into your head and give youa headache too. Overall it is a decent game that is not recomened for hardcore gamers.
Summary: Let me start my review by saying I have a six year old, a 13 year old and a 19 year old. Ultimate Board Game Collection is one of the very few games they can all play together against each other and the 6 year old has a shot at beating her older sisters. My six year old loves reversi and battleship. My 19 year old is absolutely unbeatable at quattro (connect four), and my 13 year old can kick anyone's butt at chinese checkers. That being said, I love Mah Johng.
Summary: MOST GAMES WORK FINE. ONE IN A WHILE THE LOADING FEATURE LOCKS UP AND WE HAVE TO UNPLUG THE WII FROM POWER SOURCE AND RESTART. IT SEEMS TO BE NOT DOING IT NOW, SO WE WILL SEE. OTHER THAN THAT GAMES ARE GOOD. DO NOT KNOW HOW TO PLAY SOME OF THEM AND NOT MUCH DOCUMENTATION TO HELP YOU IN THAT AREA.
Summary: There is nothing complex about this game, or actually series of games. However, it is a lot of fun to play because it can be very challenging. Even on the easy level, the computer is a tough opponent. Enjoyable for people of all ages.
Summary: Some of the tutorials do not explain fully the game or how to use the remote for all the things you should be able to do such as rolling the dice; I read the booklet that came with it and read the tutorial on the actual game and it did not tell you how to roll them but I finally had my son in law come over and we finally figured it out but once you get it all figured out, it has a lot of board games to choose from and most are enjoyable.
Summary: This game really had a lot of potential to be good. However, as is, I have several issues with the game. Here's a few: The rules on how to play games are not clearly demonstrated in the game, it simply assumes you already know how to play all of the games it includes. In example: if you don't know how to play games like Backgammon, this game will allow you to play it, but you may not end up with a full understanding of HOW to play as there are no in-game tutorials.
