Guinness World Records: The Videogame
Lots of mini games, fun for family!
This game is very corny but addicting. The mini games are ridiculous, like eating a plane, but it’s really fun. And it is hysterical to smash melons with your head. A few are difficult, I still haven’t figured out how to rip a phone book apart. We have only played this a few times and have not unlocked even half of the games yet. We probably spent over an hour on the old video game mini challenge alone because it was so addicting. I thought it was weird how although we choose two different characters we used the same remote/nunchuck. So it was a pain to switch them back and forth, but it would also be nice if we only had one remote/nunchuck. If you love mini games this is a must, and it is decent value for the price. I also think it would be a good game for younger kids who are not that good at using the controllers yet. Anyone can shake the remote and smash things =) But its good for a family and friends who play all the time because you can always try and beat everyone else’s records.
So much Fun!!
We wanted a fun family game, something we would all enjoy, and we found it with this game. The basic principal of this game is that you are trying to break actual world records that are in the Guinness Book of World Records. We laughed as our customized animated characters smashed melons with their heads. I squirmed as my character ate cockroaches (eww). Not only are you trying to break your own best score, or have the top score in your house, but you can try to break regional, national, and even world records by using the wifi connection. Some of the games are pretty silly. It is animation type graphics, not real-life looking at all. Not really a story based game, it is more a collection of some of the silliest mini-game style events I have ever played. Most of the controls are very basic, and easy to pick up on. This would be a great game for a family, or for those new to the Wii controls. For us, it is a game that we will play over and over again. Definitely the only place that I will ever be able to tear phone books in half, or balance a car on my head!
Best game for the Wii
This is by far the most fun family game for the Wii. I was so happy to see great reviews for it on Gamestop's website. It you have young kids they can master some of the movements (simple pedaling), and older "gamers" have some harder games that require multiple precision moves (motorcycle jump...rev at just the right time, lift the bike at just the right angle). I had the world record on the bmx challenge until we updated via Wifi (love that your are competing with everyone who has it connected). I'm down to National Champion now :( Just means I have to try to beat it. The character customization is great (the hairstyles are supposed to be ridiculous, you are banging watermelons with your head :) It took us a while to master the movement to toss the cockroach into the mouth, and for some reason my egg won't stay balanced in the egg walk. The most frustrating, we've yet to figure out the telephone book tear...but that's the fun of it. Who wants to step up to a game and master it on the first try? You'd be bored after an hour and never play it again. If your family is competitive, you will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this game. Once my husband beat me on the egg walk I played it til I beat him. We will have none of that :) Its active so lots of exercise...and that's why we bought the Wii..you have to move your arms pretty fast to get a high score on BMX. Like that it only takes one persons points to unlock the next games for good. Initially we thought you had to pay 1,000 points to play each game, but just once and then you can access it anytime. Also, you can use multiple remotes, just have to select your character with your remote (in case that was a concern for anyone based on the other review. Have fun...but watch out, its addicting :)
Pound-for-pound Mini-game Champion
We had just paid $25 for a pre-owned copy of The Price is Right and were extremely disappointed, so our estimation of this game might be colored by that. This game is roughly 50 times more funner than Price is Right, at 1/3 the cost. Some of the controls are a bit strange, the "+" is used for some of the navigation for some reason. Some of the games are a little confusing at first, as to what the control scheme is, or what your objective is -but you don't need to beat any particular game in order to advance, as far as I can tell so just skip the games that aren't as well designed.. I feel like the replay value will be very high, as you try to get better and better records in each mini-game. Just get it, it's $8.
Really good game....!
I am just going to tell you now I don't like it when people right stuff thatss not true on games making it look bad or good when it's not.So this games controls are a little hard (not to hard though)like when you're biking my cords get all tangled up and it not to bad though.It is fun to compete with friends and family.My brother and I play and compete against each other all the time,and we created ourselves.When creating your character the hairstyles are AWEFULL!Theres like 1 or two good ones for girl hair.....boys have a pretty good selection of hair.....but otherwise the game is one of the funnest i've ever played!The games are halairous!Those small faults don't affect much so I would TOTALLY recommend this game to you for fun all around!Thank you for reading my review!

Not one of my records
The graphics looked like a cartoon. Some of the events were a little weird, like shaving sheep or seeing how high you could send a bike with you on it into the air. Not really on my top games list.
