  1. 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.

    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.
  3. 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.

    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.
  5. 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]
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  10. 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.
