Family Party: 30 Great Games
Bad controls. okay graphics. repetitive prompts and menus. I was really excited about this game until i realized how terribly difficult it is the controls are very hard to master and its near impossible too remember which keys do what for what game so you spend half of the time reading boring instructions. I would not recommend this game to anyone that easily frustrated. you shake the remote to run and half the time the people don't run. Plus only a handful of games are unlocked when you buy it and you have to beat like 6 games at a time to unlock one more. For a game made for parties and light fun i hope if you buy it you have a family of expert gamers... all in all i don't recommend this game to anyone especially children.If you think you must buy i would wait till the price drops to like 5 dollars.
in name only
you should not play this game. it has no point, it does what you should not do with motion controls: you just shake the remote. the graphics are ok, but not great. the AI knows what to do and you don't, and almost alway wins, so you have to get 4 people to play to share the stories of this frustrating game. before you play your chosen game you must read the what to do because everything is done differently. the games aren't any fun to play either, and they get repetitive. you will also tire your arm out from shaking the remote so much if there's anything good about this, you get to watch grandparents wipe out from you messing up so much. there is no nunchuck use, which would cut down on some frustration. if you have a kid who wants this game, only let them have it if they dislike fun and enjoy frustration, and don't let anyone buy this, it's that bad.
Not a Family game that's for sure !!
We were actually excited about this game when we saw it at the store but that excitiement slowly lead to disappointment and frustration as the games started. My 5 year old had an awful time and he plays alot of different games by himself including computer games that require remembering which keys to press and things like that. This game was frustrating for me and i'm 34 ! Very akward game play , so so graphics, hard to navigate menus. If you're excited about this game then rent it first before you buy it !! If they would have implemented the use of the OUTDOOR CHALLENGE mat with this title , it actually might be a little more fun to play considering there is alot of running involved but instead you shake the remote up and down to run, press the A button to jump and on the obstacle course you had to hold A and B down while aiming the remote at the sensor bar and kind of doing a pull stick motion with it. Certain games you had to turn the remote sideways while other you had to hold it normal and twist and turn. Every game had a different setup and different button configuration that you had to press. For a game with kids and family involved, they sure missed the boat on this 1 !!
Boring. Don't buy Family Party games.
This is a great game for those who want to compete with each other and humiliate them. It is fun, but overall it's only 5/10. Choose some other game like Wii Party or if you have a Wii U get Nintendo Land but don't get this game ever.
I can't believe this is real
so if you don't like fun, and have a wii, get this. all you do is shake your remote and hope you win. and you don't get much help figuring this out. so this is not a family game, it's a better torture game.
