    Its unique brand of gibbering heroism can be tedious work. [Jan 2012, p.90]

    Start the Party: Save the World! is fun when you try it for the first time, but that's about it: if your party is to last, you'd better have another title on hand.

    It's the lack of more game modes and minigames that completely spoils the fun.

    Start the Party! Save the World is a terrible sequel to Start the Party. Sony did not listen to the fans and delivers a sequel that doesn't improve at all on its predecessor. Unoriginal mini-games and lack of content make this party game something you shouldn't buy.

    Considering the lack of inspiration that defines the game, PlayStation Move's potentials aren't unfortunately enough to assure an engaging and well rounded experience.

    Start the Party : Save the World works very well. The mini-games are fun, all with a friendly atmosphere. But in terms of content, there is only twenty "missions" and no different game modes to create some competition… That's not enough. At 10€ on the PSN, why not, but not at 30€ boxed.
  7. The augmented reality tech is nifty, but it's let down by some rather bland game design. [January 2012, p.80]

    Unfortunately Start the Party! Save the World is one of those collection of mini-games that seems a little lacklustre from the get go and doesn't really challenge this genre.

    With nothing really new to offer and with many recycled ideas from the first game, Save the World is just another mediocre party game.

    What I really want is my time I spent playing this back.

    In fairness, there is some fun to be had here, and Supermassive Games do show a degree of competency in utilizing the PlayStation Move, but sadly competency really isn't enough to get a party jumping.

    Nooooooo!!! Where are the Trophies? IT CAN'T BE! This sequel to the PlayStation Move launch game Start the Party is a lot of fun if you're into this sort of mini-games. Be sure to stand right in front of your TV though… and seriously, why the complete lack of Trophies?

    Sadly, while a handful of the 20 games on offer in Start the Party! Save the World are highly entertaining, given that this is meant to be a family package that can entertain all ages and indeed start the party, Supermassive Games needs to work harder to give PS3 the Move-enabled party game it truly deserves next time.
  15. In a lot of the minigames a second player can use the regular controller to hinder the main player in various ways. It's a nice way to keep everyone entertained, but actually it is a lot more fun to shove or distract your friends in real life to get them to fail. [December 2011, p.86]
