    It's a shame that you can't really recommend Family Party: 30 Great Games - Obstacle Arcade thanks to it's technical deficits and nerve-shattering host.

    30 games? Yes! Great? Hardly! If you want minigames for your Wii U GamePad buy a ticket for Nintendo Land or visit the Rabbids.
  3. ONM Coroner's Report: Patient suffered a psychotic breakdown while playing this game. No treatment possible.

    I'm really upset that it isn't illegal to sell garbage like this to innocent children, at a very steep price at that. Any kid who gets this as a Christmas present will have his or her holidays ruined, and anyone who bought it should get their money back with personal apologies from the game's developer.

    Family Party: 30 Great Games Obstacle Arcade is a mess. It makes a promise it can't keep, assaults your ears with annoying voice acting, and sucks all the fun out of owning a Wii U. It is the coal under the tree that is Wii U.

    Do you want sad faces on Xmas? Do you like pointless mini-games with poor and confusing controls? Would you prefer everything looked like Wii party-games with slightly sharper graphics? Would you love to have to buy two wiimotes, two nunchucks on top of your Wii U and Gamepad to play with a friend? Then this game is for you.

    Family Party is terrible. Not only is it bad, it's borderline unplayable.

    When I saw the 11/100 review on Metacritic, I thought that there was no way a newer generation game can be that bad. That was, until IWhen I saw the 11/100 review on Metacritic, I thought that there was no way a newer generation game can be that bad. That was, until I actually played it.

    The first problem is that the name is a complete lie. Family Party 30 Great Games. There are actually 35 games, and none off them are anything close to "great", or even "good". Secondly, the mini-games are extremely dull with visuals and graphics and rival Thrillville, a Play Station 2 game, which was still a better game, and it came out almost 10 years ago.

    And on top of that, the Wii U gamepad can only be used for 10 of the games. The rest, you need Wii remotes to use. So if you bought this game without having remotes from the previous console, sorry about your luck. It should NEVER be a problem that you can't play a game on a newer console because you don't have the controllers from the previous console.

    As for the mini-games, they are all either one of two things, 1. Extremely easy and not challenging at all, or 2. Completely broken and unplayable. This is the second biggest problem behind that controllers.

    And the last thing that is probably the most annoying part, is the game announcer and voice acting. It's absolutely horrid and annoying, especially when the voice announcer continuously talks while the game is going on.

    So, in conclusion, if you want to have a true family party game with great games, get Mario Party. Heck, get anything besides this game.
