  1. The best party title on the PS2 and has a superb likeness to The Muppet Show, making it a fine purchase for anyone with a thing for cuddly comedy.
  2. The game is not much fun from a single-player perspective, but it can be incredibly entertaining if you are playing with friends.
  3. It's not a bad game, but its no "Mario Party."
  4. It can have its moments, but a lack of action and exciting mini-games can make Muppet Party Cruise drag on like a bad party.
  5. For three decades pop culture has ingrained the voices of these central characters into our lives and to have them not sounding like expected is a disappointment.
  6. The value is placed in the sale price, not in the replay, and after two hours you’ll most likely be done with everything.
  7. Brings a fresh look to the party game scene with its unique brand of strategy and absence of plumbers, but it doesn’t have much of a life span. At $20, though, the frog, pig, chickens and things are better than you think.
  8. If it only comes off the shelf once in a while, or for small children, it's a much better deal than other party games out there going for $50.

    If there’s one game you buy this year, make sure it’s not this one. Don’t even bother picking it up in a shop to view the screens on the back.
  10. Party games need to be quickfire, easy to play and impossible to put down, and this is the exact opposite - slow, irritating to play and tedious in the extreme.
  11. For every minigame that plays acceptably, there are three or four that have no redeeming value whatsoever. Control is consistently imprecise and occasionally mystifying, and none of the games approach any semblance of complexity.
