  1. If you need a break from "Mario Party," this is a good place to start.
  2. Kids probably won't mind much, and they're definitely the target audience here. Pirates' Carnival isn't spectacular in any one sense, but the solid mini-games and well-used license are enough to put it near the top of the distinctly uncompetitive party game genre.
  3. If you and your friends are fans of the series, as popular as it is, Pirates Carnival would be a great way to kick back and have a friendly competition with each other. Those who are not familiar with the series or are a little older may not find the premise or even the gameplay itself all that interesting and not quite the party they were expecting.
  4. It's a good choice for punchy party fans. [Nov. 2006, p.87]
  5. Despite cramming in a respectable amount of licensed material, weak minigames and a plodding pace mean this ship bilges on its anchor.
  6. Pirates' Carnival isn't the buried treasure party-gamers have been looking for. It's more like the fool's gold of party games.
