    Guilty Party is a great game for families and more casual players. The characters and gameplay both have an all-ages appeal that's hard to come by in most games today.
  2. The Story Mode is the real highlight of this package, while the Party Mode helps to add longevity to the title after you've solved the main mystery.
  3. If you're a fan of board games or enjoy gathering people around the TV to play together, Guilty Party will have you scouring for evidence and unmasking crooks for weeks. [Sept 200, p.94]
  4. For a game in a genre that is so easily dismissed by most gamers, Disney Guilty Party turned out to be a very good title. Disney Guilty Party is a must-have for any Wii gamer.
  5. Despite several artificial restraints, Guilty Party is proof that you can turn a board game, a detective story, and mini-games - if just by combining them all together - into a title that doesn't incite collective yawns.
  6. As a single-player title, Guilty Party is ideal for kids; however, as a party game for the whole family, this is nothing short of delightful.

    Although not much of a gameplay challenge for anybody over the age of 10, the Clue-like gameplay structure of Disney Guilty Party provides a nice little mystery party for wannabe detective Wii gamers.
  8. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Guilty Party had some genuinely funny moments. [Oct 2010, p.89]
  9. Despite some sticking points in the mini-game department, its quirky personality and replay value make Guilty Party one of the best multiplayer party games to hit the Wii.
  10. The ingenuity behind the cases mixed with the ability to play every part of the game with four players and tweak difficulty settings make Guilty Party a title worth pursuing.

    Story Mode is a bit on the short side and each round of Party Mode is similar at its core, so things will get a touch stale after extended play, but otherwise this is the perfect game for a get-together or a family night. Indeed, this is just the type of title for which the Wii was designed.
  12. Guilty Party is an excellent game and boasts solid graphics along with some great voice work and sound effects, but to be forced to play Story Mode to unlock the much more entertaining Party Mode is a downer.

    So while more hardcore players may scoff at the very idea of party games, and Guilty Party definitely doesn't necessarily avoid the inherent pitfalls of the genre, it's still some of the most fun you'll have on your Wii with a crew of interested buddies.
