  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  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. 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.
  5. You won’t be missing anything if you never play some of the games; they are really not that great.

    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.
  7. 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.
  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. 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.
  10. 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.

    Do you know what it looks like when someone's self-aware of how bad their game is?

    Say the game is great in the title! Honestly, this is

    Honestly, this is an atrocity of the worst kind. Besides the hilariously awful Player Select (where every time you move your cursor over a save, the kid says, "I'll save here", so if you flail your remote wildly, all you hear is, I'll-I-I'll-I'll s-I'll sa-I'll-I-I'll save" etc.), there isn't anything that's noteworthy. Everything's so bland and uninteresting.

    Just another shovelware Wii game meant to cash in on the motion controls.
