~ Personal Experience ~
I am a big fan of family type games as we tend to play quite a few board games as a family and if we can get a console game which is as good as the board game then we invest in them especially for the Wii console.
When we bought this we had in mind how many players would be able to play it as we tend to have on average four players playing if we are going to play fun console games like Wii Party, Wii Sports and games alike.
So what's the game like to play?
It's jam packed full of mini games (80 in total) and all of them are brilliant and full of fun and will keep you entertained for hours on end. If your competitive it can be quite annoying at times as it tries to even the game up at certain points especially during the board game island.
There are many features (most games are either 1-4 or 2-4 players): -
Hide N Hunt: This is fun as you have to hide the remote within your room and the opposition has to find it within the allocated time.
Time Bomb: You have to have precision handling here especially with the Wii remote and have to pass the remote to your opponent without shaking it, yes you know what happens if you have a shaky hand! Boom!
Animal Tracker: The console makes an animal sound and the players have to guess which one made it.
Buddy Quiz: basically one player chooses to be a buddy and then answers a set list of questions. Then the other players have to guess what that player would have answered.
Board game island: This is our favourite part of Wii party as one of the longest to play and anyone can win depending on their luck and what parts of the board each player lands on, very entertaining and fun to play.
Globe Trot: This is our second favourite game as each player trots around the world trying to collect power cards which will enable them to reach a tourist destination before any else, beware though you need enough coins to take a snap!
Bingo: What do I need to say its bingo but with Mii heads instead of numbers, quite humourous!
Swap Meet: basically it's the game pairs but with Mii characters. You also have to get a row of the same character and you win points.
Spin off: Basically the game wheel of fortune but with coins instead of cash and mini games thrown in to make it even more exciting, quite fun in my opinion.
Balance Boat: This can be hilarious but can make you cry if you get towards the end and suddenly you get your balance wrong and you have to start again which can be frustrating. Great fun for lots of players.
Friend Connection: This is where two players answer questions to see if they are as compatible as you think you are, can return interesting results!
Match Up: Basically match the Mii characters and you win.
~Cost & Store ~
We bought our game from the store ASDA for around £29.99 which was quite some difference from the big game stores which were selling it around £40. I tend to see this trend quite often and find that most times supermarkets are cheaper than the big boys.
~ Conclusion ~
Fabulous for socialising, great for family fun and you have kids they will love this, aswell as adults. This can be a great addition to your Wii games and would be great for events such as parties and family/friends gatherings.
The cost I am sure is even cheaper than when we bought this game and is well worth the price we bought it at. The graphics are great, the playability is brilliant and there is no age limit on who can play.
A real fun game which keeps you entertained for hours, I never got bored playing this game.
~ Overall Ratings (out of 5) ~
Easy to play: 4/5
Summary: A great game loaded with lots of games which keeps you entertained for hours!
