CD-ActionFeb 10, 2014There’s nothing left from Mattel’s vision of Barbie as a girl who can do anything and pursue any career she wants. In Dreamhouse Party she’s is just a cute, dumb girl on high heels who wastes her time with her equally dumb friends. It’s sad. [02/2014, p.68]

When the computerized closet decided to take control of the house and lock everyone inside I expected Barbie and Friends to get their shotguns and battle monsters. Instead, they competed in a dance-off runway competition. When Barbie and Friends had to groom pets and horses I expected these creatures to be at least zombies, but no; they just stood there.
Basically a platform-puzzle game that is aimed at some type of audience somewhere. For the gamer that likes Left for Dead this might not be their cup of tea, but I am sure the game designers had some target market in mind.
I give it a 10 for the bold and uncompromising decision the game designers made to keep the game focused on their target market (where ever they are) and not try and sully this game with elements to appeal to the general audience.

When my sister said this game is very insulting to children and girls everywhere, that's when I punished her for cheating at school. Both the story and gameplay are so clever, deep, and complex that I punched a hole thew the monitor. My sister said it's only very very easy find the thing "puzzles" and minigames that are mostly copies of each other. She also said that they tell you where the thing is after six seconds. This is the very definition of a killer-app in regards to the Steam, 3DS, and Wii U library, even more than Super Mario 3D World. Quite frankly, there’s nothing else quite like Barbie Dreamhouse Party on the market and it is one of the most engaging games I have played in a long time. The 4K graphics rapes the Witcher 2 on PC on just the 3DS, even the walls feel so damn alive. The world is so huge and there is a lot of cool dudes to meet. I can say when I got Barbie Dreamhouse Party and threw it in expecting a childish experience and a boring system, what I got in return was a visual, emotional, and most importantly awe inspiring slap in the face from the Great Glory that is known as Barbie Dreamhouse Party. This game is an instant classic.… Full Review »
