  • Summary: Guinness World Recordsis full of amazing world records, giving players the opportunity to become a real world record breaker. The game's quick-fire action challenges can be played solo, in teams, or in competitive multi-player groups. Accessible game mechanics enable anyone to grow the longest fingernails ever seen; to walk a tightrope across the Grand Canyon; or even eat a jumbo jet. But true skill and dedication will be required to compete at the highest level. The ultimate prize: you may see your name appear in the official Guinness World Records book. [Warner Bros.] Expand

  1. With record breaking as the foundation and a strong selection of fun mini-games to play, a well as leaderboards and multiplayer games, Guinness World Records: The Videogame is an excellent party game.
  2. This is a fun Christmas game that, just like the book will be used for a while and forgotten about by Easter.
  3. More polished and personality-laden than many other third parties' minigame collections on Wii, this title is actually solid fun for solo players and groups alike.

    The Guinness Book of World Records seems like an odd choice for a license to transform into a video game, but the team at TT Games has done a fine job at doing just that -- this mini-game collection is more fun and approachable than the bulk of other similar titles seen recently on the DS and Wii, and gets the critical aspect of play control just right in both editions.
  5. 65
    There's nothing groundbreaking here, but it's gross, fun and perhaps best saved for the kiddies.
  6. The lack of identity and direction is unfulfilling, and while a select group of mini-games are entertaining and original, many of them feel generic and bland. But in the end, it's the lack of simultaneous multiplayer that makes the game nearly pointless.
  7. Uninspired controls. [Jan 2009, p.70]

    The best mini game collection on the Wii. Every game is fun and gives you that just one more go feeling. The online leaderboard is a masterstroke and although clearly not a unique feature, somehow here it just feels right. Highly recommended, I can see a lot of families having great fun with this on Christmas Day! Expand
