Hasbro Family Game Night
Overall a fun night with the kids.
My husband and I bought this game for our daughters for christmas and have thoroughly enjoyed playing along with them. Our 8 year old has an easier time understanding than our 5 year old, but they both have enjoyed playing Sorry and Connect Four the most. My husband and I have enjoyed playing against each other on Battleship. The graphics are above average, even for all the moving about the screen seems to be doing all the time and Mr. Potato Head floating around. The sound is also above average and not overbearing when your trying to play a game. The only down side to this game is navigating through the various menus. I found it difficult to go back and add someone to the player list after I was already in the game menu. There wasn't any real direction to tell you how to go back to the menu, etc. Also, the names on the screen were so small even on our 42" TV it was hard to tell who's turn it was. Overall, we have enjoyed playing the games on here many times over. For a fun night in with the kids or on a cold winter day. I would definately recommend this for a family with or without kids.
This game is pretty cool. It takes some time to get used to the controls as with any game, but once it has been figured out it's a lot of fun! Our 2 year old and 5 year old love the Sorry Sliders game...so do our parents. It truly is a family fun night. The Battleship game is as real as if you were playing with the board game. The Sorry game we're still figuring out...a little bit harder on the controls. There are different ways to play all the games and they have a custom set-up where you can set-up your own way of playing. I definitely would recommend this to anyone with children and to basically anyone who is looking for a few good games to have in the house without having to clean up the mess of the real board games. I would say that this game is well worth the money spent on it!
An OK game
I like the sorry slidders and battleship the most. Yahtzee, boggle, connect four, and sorry come up next. I like the different ways to play and I like the options such as the theme, unlocking different things for your room, and, of course, our favourite little take-apart guy, Mr. Potato head and his jetpack! overall its OK.
Just not worth it!!!!
It made me dizzy and bored! Only 2 games worked good. Battleship made me dizzy, and other games weren't like the regular board games! I had to return it!!!!
