    A terrible game that has absolutely no content worthy of holding even a 2 year olds attention.
    That's exactly why wii party U sold so bad, people realize these shallow empty games aren't worth paying for when they have iphones and android phones.

    Mostly solid minigames, i had a casual play of this with some friends and this game is simply god awful. Any other mario party game is better than this. The 1v3 minigames are rigged and most are impossible to win for the gamepad user and basically every single little thing in this game is completely unbalanced. The "race to the finish" is literally meaningless. Any form of competition or fairness is thrown out the window. A game like this is obviously going to be filled with randomized things but this game PREVENTS anyone from "losing" really. I played one game only and there are checkpoints that stop players ahead, in order to pass you need to pass a game of chance. So unless you score last on every mini game and role pitiful dice there is no way you can fall behind because everyone gets funneled at these checkpoints waiting to get the lucky pass. Not like it really matters anyways because near the end there are alien teleport things that will basically teleport the last player all the way to someone else. So you could literally not do anything at all, wait to get teleported to the end. Roll the right dice and win the game without doing anything else. The fact that the finish line cannot be passed without beating game of chance ruins the entire game. Might as well set the game to playing nonstop mini games only Expand

    Not the best party game on Wii U, but perhaps worth it for the remote. [Christmas 2013, p.77]

    Wii Party U is a sizable and varied collection of minigames. It’s not much fun unless you have at least four people, but as it stands it’s a pretty good deal: a Wii remote and a big party game, for less than the price of a triple-A title.
  3. Attempts to be all games to all parties, but never decides what it wants to be. [Christmas 2013, p.86]
