    Carnival Island is actually quite a bit of fun and makes nice use of the precision PS Move controls. If you have kids or are looking for an enjoyable, family friendly experience, it's worth checking out.

    If you are an adult, you have to be in a really good mood to survive all this over-the-top happiness. But it is however a wonderful game to play together with your kids. The minigames are challenging, but easy enough to be enjoyed by players of all ages. [December 2011, p.86]

    Carnival Island does exactly what it claims to on the box: it offers a compelling (and challenging) set of carnival-themed mini-games, a light story and offers the perfect all-ages showcase for the Move. If you have a Move, you want this game.

    The combination of brilliant Move-controls and funny mini games makes Carnival Island one of the best partygames on the PlayStation 3 this year. The visual aspect is very nice and in spite of the loading times and the rare crash, Carnival Island is worth buying.

    It's a fine game only few people will get to experience due to the lack of a move controller. There's basicly seven kinds of mini-games here,It's a fine game only few people will get to experience due to the lack of a move controller. There's basicly seven kinds of mini-games here, but every game has five levels with a different set-up and missions. The single player mode can be beaten within two hours like most mini-game compilations, but that's excusable because these games are meant to be replayed.

    The game will provide a whole new experience if you play it together with family or friends, as your misses will be enjoyed and laughed at. Controls are perfect and very responsive. The BGM is typical carnival music, but forgetable. There's animated cutscenes as well, but they're nothing big to brag about as the animation is mediocre at best.

    This is a enjoyable game alone, but playing it with more people will boost the enjoyment.

If you play this with a group of friends you will really enjoy it alot. You will enjoy it even more if you are drinking... Even playing solo the game is alot of fun and the mini-games are creative and fun. The PlayStation move works well with the game, I had no lag issues or inaccurate movements. Full Review »
