    Wii Party U is a surprisingly good party game that shows how quality and quantity can coexist in this genre.

    Wii Party U reveals that there are still many spaces to fill with originality, even in the most simple and minimalist gameplay.

    Wii Party U is a fun and clever party game with tons of options and a great variety of game styles. Nintendo has created a game which can change itself adapting to any kind of atmosphere. The Table Games are a great addiction too!

    Many of the mini-games on offer really push the unique features of the system to create novel yet highly entertaining experiences that can't be found elsewhere.

    Wii Party U is a very fun party game, but the mini-game options aren't as attractive as in the original and Mario Party 9.

    Wii Party U definitely has the diversity to be enjoyed by anyone, and racing a zebra, a rhino, and a giraffe while inebriated could turn out to be the stuff of legend.

    We wanted a better implementation of the GamePad, but it still manages to be fun, and it’s definitely one of those games you will love when have some friends or family around.

    Wii Party U is a surprisingly rich party game and a perfect fit for the forthcoming holiday season. Not everything works perfectly, but it stands as an honest and funny game for your evening with friends, sons and/or parents.

    With over 80 minigames you get a lot of content. Unfortunately most of the games are short and simple.

    If you’ve got a group of three additional players to enjoy Wii Party U with, I definitely think it’s worth checking out. As a single-player game there’s not nearly enough to do that would warrant a purchase, and even as a two-player experience it falls a little short.

    A surprisingly deep experience with a variety of ways to play. While there are some duds to be found in each mode, there are enough highlights to have fun in plenty of different ways.

    Why are there so many negative reviews for this game? It's not a challenging game, but rather one that anyone can play. I have played thisWhy are there so many negative reviews for this game? It's not a challenging game, but rather one that anyone can play. I have played this with family and friends, each of them finding multiple modes they enjoy. My personal favourite is the minigame "Hide and go Beak" as (when played with the right people) can be a good laugh. Full Review »

    Each mode in TV Party is fun and unique, House Party has very interesting games if you have friends or family to play with, and Gamepad partyEach mode in TV Party is fun and unique, House Party has very interesting games if you have friends or family to play with, and Gamepad party is great for 2 players not to mention a lot of good minigames and the different minigame game modes. On your own you can have fun but on multiplayer its a blast. Full Review »
