Feb 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]

Jan 5, 2014This is one of the most unique games I have played in a long time. 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.

Easily the most underrated game of 2013.… Full Review »
