Summary: My kids first played this game at my sister-in-law's house and they had a blast playing it, so I decided to buy it for them. And they have loved it! It is a great family game for a big family like mine. Don't plan to play this game alone because it won't be very fun. The title says it all: it is a party game that is very fun to play when you have friends or family over. Each minigame (it has over 70)is simple, yet fun.
Summary: We bought this game somewhat hesitantly as we were looking for Wii options for our toddler (who LOVES Wii Fit and Wii Sports), and we weren't sure if this would be a good fit. At first glance, it did seem a little 'old' for him; however, he's played for hours now that we've found the mini-games.
Summary: Wii Party isn't the greatest game out there, but it is a lot more fun than I expected, particularly for older folks. It's not just for kids. The mini-games are great when you're pressed for time, whereas House Party games and whatnot take longer but are equally fun. Time bomb is particularly enjoyable. You hand the remote from player to player, trying to beat the clock, but the trick is that if you move to fast or jiggle the controller too much the bomb goes off.
Summary: We are not hardcore gamers, we just like to play a game now and then for fun without having to beat 100 levels. This game is perfect. My 5yo daughter can "get" and play most of the mini-games without getting frustrated which earns huge points from me! We've had fun playing this game together and have likely played this one more than any other. If you've got younger kids or non-gamers, this is a great choice.
Summary: My family picked this up yesterday even though I wasn't thrilled about paying full price for a new game. We have boys 3 & 6. We played this game through the evening yesterday and they bolted out of bed and dressed in seconds with the promise of a few more minutes before the bus/carpool arrived. The best part of this game is the variety of different types of gameplay. Unlike Wii Sport, or Wii Sports Resort, there are what seems like a hundred options.
Summary: I wanted to write my first ever Amazon review after being very well entertained for 4 days now with Wii Party. The review was going to be very detailed. However, I believe I'm on the same page as Kaio, and almost wrote the same positive review nearly verbatim, so I scrapped it. Let me say that I'm 30 years old and tend not to buy as many games as I used to, but I get that itch once in awhile to purchase a game, or should I say a Nintendo game for that matter?
