Family loves it!
We originally rented it from gamefly but unfortunately they don't sell it, but we are buying it from gamestop right now! This game has been super fun to play with the kids! We have been little gamer family bonding every night! :D

rent it first
Clue and Life are fun and that is about it, but for just enjoying those 2 games it is not worth $40.00 for sure. Rent it first if you can or buy it used.

Fun despite its annoyances
This game has a lot of things going for it. It has games most of us know and grew up on. And it has at least 1 that everyone in my family really wants to play.
The games are great to get the family together and do something fun they've done a fairly decent job converting games like clue, which used to require you hiding cards, to be playable with everyone sharing the screen. The problem comes from the interface. It reminds me being on a computer with out a pop up blocker. 1 game of LIFE could be shortened down 20 minutes if they would cut down on the needless spamming of the A button. It literally makes the game take twice as long as it should. things that could simply flash on the screen and quickly go away or even have the scores stay on the screen 1 in each corner would work so much better. the camera also gets pretty annoying at times. it seems to chaotically jump around and is always spinning to try and make the game look cooler. They should have just made the right analog stick control the camera and that would be the end of it. Ive gotten turned around so many times playing clue because the board is constantly switching directions due to the camera angle.
the ONLY options you are given in this game are the volume controls for sfx and music.
if you're seriously into getting together with your friends and getting your MOUSE TRAP on. you'd probably be best to actually buy the game. This game has some annoyances, that if you take this game too seriously, could become extremely aggravating.
In closing this game is fun but annoying. Best played as a sort of background game. another thing to note, tried searching online for games and found a big fat ZERO! I don't regret my purchase and will have lots of fun with this game. but I can easily see how this game isn't for everyone

For very young or older players
I like the game. The family and I play and like only a few of the games. We like the games Life, Clue and Mouse trap. We would like more of the games like battleship and sorry from family night 1. I would like a few changes in the games that would make it more fun and interesting. But over all it's still fun. And the oline session are fun with the families that live across the crountry.
