  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. 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.
  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 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.
  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?

    Great Party Game!!! For just $20 bucks you're going to find something in this game you will like! Shuffleboard is the best in my home!

    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. Collapse

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

    The worst game I ever got. I own lots of WII games and this one is total crap. I hate the fact I can't return a game like this one. I am The worst game I ever got. I own lots of WII games and this one is total crap. I hate the fact I can't return a game like this one. I am not able to exit any games as there are serious controller issues on mine. Basically I enter a game and have to complete the mini game before I can quit. Who wants that? If I want to quit I should be able to do it any time I want. I want a refund!!!!!!! AND THE GAMES AREN'T FUN!!!!! Expand
