  1. Family Party will please children because of its simplicity and visual beauty -remarkable in comparison with other titles of the genre- and will entertain those who give this game an opportunity.

    As far as mini-games on Wii go, Family Party: 30 Great Games is an above average effort. That may not be saying much, but if you're looking for something to entertain your friends on occasion, you certainly could do a whole lot worse.
  3. This is one of the few compilation games that actually passes the bar, barely. I can't say that this is the one for you, but there is some fun found in this title, you just have to look.
  4. At its low price, this game should earn some consideration from any gamer looking for a cheap and simple game for a young child. Even so, however, I would highly advise you take a look at Mario Party or WarioWare: Smooth Moves instead.
  5. You won’t be missing anything if you never play some of the games; they are really not that great.
  6. Although you will wonder why Log Cutting is a family game, you’ll have too much fun to really care. If you don’t have anyone to play with, then the fun in this game will quickly diminish, but this game will surely bring families together.
  7. Family Party doesn't bring anything new to the table. It may be a budget-priced title at $20, but I would venture to say that is almost too much to pay for this one.
  8. Family Party: 30 Great Games on Nintendo Wii focuses the gameplay on the multiplayer component and offers 30 different challenges sorted by categories. Too bad it’s not funny, and technically awful.
  9. Despite its claim of greatness, Family Party's mini-games range from abysmal to bland. Many are physically abusive and/or feel redundant; others have moderately interesting ideas but leave much to be desired.
  10. Don't buy Family Party: 30 Great Games unless you hate video games and want to torture yourself and the friends who come over and play multiplayer with you.

    Not really all that easy to use, and not very enjoyable. Some of the movements are counterintuitive, and too challenging for young children.
