    It is good if you play with friends but by yourself it's kinda boring, the gamepad modes are the best of this game especially the baseball on I found very fun.

    There's some fun to be had with Wii Party U when playing with a group of ppl but it is usually short lived. most of the new board games are boring. Seriously, one of the boards is a highway. That's it. A straight road suspended over water. I did like the balldozer game but it is extremely short.

Seriously, one of the boards is a highway. That's it. A straight road suspended over water. I did like the balldozer game but it is extremely short. Some of the minigames are great (I especially enjoyed the tabletop games) but too many of them rely on randomization rather than skill and this gets very tiring very quickly. The wii party and mario party series from Nintendo could both use some new life. Let's hope that the inevitable Mario Party U will bring something new and exciting to the table. Expand

    I played Wii party and i can tell i prefer it to Wii party U. The new games aren't as fun, and some old ones lost their magic. I didn't expect a masterpiece or a very good game anyway, but i'm a bit disappointed. Though, all these negative points don't mean you can't have fun with this game, but if I have friends at home, i won't choose Wii party U at first.

    Thinking about getting this game for some parties? You may as well just gather your friends and go and role a dice in your living room. Wii U Party is comprised of minigames, around 80 if I'm not mistaken. The main modes are this: a board-game like (that's being generous) main game, which is divided into mini games.

You may as well just gather your friends and go and role a dice in your living room. Wii U Party is comprised of minigames, around 80 if I'm not mistaken. The main modes are this: a board-game like (that's being generous) main game, which is divided into mini games. The main problem with this game, is that it relies so much on luck; you get five rounds of minigames, even if you win all five you can easily find yourself in last place, and this leads to almost pure annoyance. It's great for kids that might struggle, as the luck factor helps them out, but if there are no kids around, and there is a competitive party atmosphere, this game has no place. Even some of the minigames are heavily luck based, and you find yourself thinking; 'what was the point of that?' Some of the minigames ARE interesting, and can be fun and challenging, but the game is full of what are clearly last minute ideas thrown in to bulk it up. But let's face it, most people who bought this just wanted the wiimote, and this is just a simple add-on. 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]
