  1. So, the conclusion is this: you got a free game with your Wii when you bought it right? Just play that.

    The wave of Wii shovelware has officially begun.
  3. While the game has “style,” it is pretty much broken.
  4. Remember all those stories about people having so much fun playing Wii Sports that they accidentally threw their remote through their TV screen? Game Party inspires the old-fashioned kind of controller-chucking.
  5. With an eye toward putting on some beer goggles to make the game better, we turned to the bottle. Ping Cup has the potential to be a decent drinking game but, again, the controls were mixed.
  6. Game Party is undeserving of the Wii. The games on display are awful, but the execution manages to be even worse. There is absolutely no fun to be had here, just frustration in large doses.
  7. The Game Party experience is like going to a party where there's nothing to drink but Tesco Value brandy and there are only four other guests and they're all racist and then your ex turns up and gets off with a Danish supermodel. Would you pay GBP 19.99 to go to that party?
  8. Game Party is one of those games that you will try your best to forget ever existed if you're unfortunate (or indeed stupid) enough to actually play it. All of the elements, from the god-awful controls to the disgusting character design, add up to create a game that no one should experience.

    Too frustrating, non-intuitive controlling.

    Darts, trivia, and shuffleboard are the only ones worth my time. The others were difficult to control.

    If you take the time to learn how to play the games they are fun and entertaining. To exit any game just press the home key on the controller If you take the time to learn how to play the games they are fun and entertaining. To exit any game just press the home key on the controller to return to the Wii menu. For the price it is a good game for family gatherings or parties. The graphics are not up to par for serious gamers. We have had players from ages 3 to 64 compete and enjoy the games. Full Review »
