Advantages: loads of minigames
Disadvantages: none for me!
Wii Party is a game that is designed for family fun, it is a mostly multiplayer game (though there are some games suitable to play solo) and is full of little mini games. This game is a great family activity on a rainy day when the kids can't go outside and play and is suitable and amusing for both children and big kids like me (adults).
To start playing this game, the first thing that you will need is a Mii for each player. Mii's are basically little characters that you can design (normally to look like yourself) and then can be used in game much like Wii Party on the Wii. Mii's can be created on the Wii Main Menu.
Once you have your Mii you are ready to start the party! There are three different game categories that you can choose when playing this game, they are:
In this category up to 4 players can compete in a range of different mini games for the craved title of champion. Within the party games category there are board game style games that are very similar to the Mario Party Nintendo games. In these games a board game is mixed with little mini games and challenges to make a great interactive experience. I like the board games in this category because they have a good mix of luck and skill, so it can be hard to predict who the overall winner will be, I think this makes the game much more fun and gives it a bit of excitement. There is also Bingo available to play in this category, though I haven't played much of it as I am not a big Bingo fan.
House Party Games:
These are designed for 2 or more players. The games in this category range from quizzes to word play games and there is also a game where one player hides a Wii Remote in the room you are playing, then the other has to try and find it, the Wii Remote makes sounds every 30 seconds or so until the remote is found, it sounds silly but this game is actually really fun. These games are great fun to play in twos and my fiancé and I love playing the quiz game together.
These are strictly 2 player games that are played either co-operatively or against each other. My favourite game in this category is Friend Connection, in this game there are 2 parts, the first part is a Mr and Mrs. Style set of questions that are asked about each player, in the second part you and your pair partner complete a mini game together co-operatively, when you have completed both tasks you are given a percentage that tells you how well you know each other. There is also a game where you match different colours to different Miis and another game where you have to balance a boat and also play minigames.
The minigames that are included throughout this game are really entertaining. There us a range of 80 different games that are choose randomly so every time you play this game it is a little different. A few examples of the minigames on this game are:
Minigames can either be played 1 vs. 1, 2 vs. 2 or 1 vs. 3. You can play mini games against other players at home like friends and family or else the computers at different levels of difficulty.
Multiplayer functions on this game are great, you can play from 1-4 players as long as you have 4 Wii remotes and enough room of course to accommodate the 4 people dancing in your living room.
The graphics on this game are what you would expect from the Nintendo Wii, they are bright colourful and cartoon styled, they could be described as quite child-like compared to games available on the Xbox or Playstation, but I think that this is what attracts Nintendo fans as games are light hearted and fun to play/look at.
The music on this game is motivating and gets you pumped up to participate in the races. It is upbeat and has a fast tempo and is not out of place compared to what you would normally find in a Nintendo game.
Price and Availability
I bought this game in Game for £19.99 recently, this is a really great price for a Wii game as they are normally much more expensive and also this is just a new game out. You can also buy this game in HMV, GameStop, Tesco, Asda, Sainsburys or online, I am sure that these stores also stock the game in around this price.
This is a great competitive game that is great to play on a family night in, in my family we love playing the party games. This game has great multiplayer functions this makes it all the better to play at a party for a bit of good natured fun. I would definitely recommend this game as a family activity the minigames on it are fun and will keep you and the kids amused. There are loads of minigames on this game which make it less boring, giving this game great playability as you'll want to master them all in order to be crowned overall champion!
