  1. Games are hard to control, repetitive, and not very fun. Single-player mode is tedious. Play value is how much the game has to offer, not just replayability.
  2. Six Flags Fun Park is not a terrible game, but it's not really a good game either. I'm not going to play it again, unless I really have to. Then again, I'm not a child, and I can imagine a child enjoying it more thoroughly.
  3. What is the purpose of completing the tasks other than unlocking some mini games? I have no idea, but the tasks are usually not that bad. In fact, some of them are even fun. They must have had some creative writers on staff to come up with the tasks.
  4. Just do yourself a favor, skip this game and go have fun with the real thing.

    The quests are uninteresting and the game's "40 Thrilling Games" (as touted by the box) are far from entertaining. I have many fond memories of Six Flags, but Fun Park is not one of them.
  6. The few elements of polish, an important part of real-world theme parks, seem like token efforts. The only authentic experience here is the sensation of being nickel-and-dimed at every stand, kiosk, and game you encounter.
  7. If you have a kid and are already planning a trip to Six Flags, this is a solid pick-up, as this $25 game has a $30 kid's admission voucher in it (if you go before the end of 2009,) so it's basically like getting the game for free. Just be prepared to hear complaints from a soon-to-be bored child a few days after purchase.

    Obviously this is not a game for hardcore gamers. It's a family party game meant to appeal to and entertain a wide range of ages as they play together. As a gaming parent, I feel it accomplishes that better than many games. Controls are fairly easy for little ones, with the element of chance tossed in for most games to prevent wins from being solely about skill. If you want a silly game with quirky humor and a wide variety of games four players (some of them young children) can play together, this is the game for you. Full Review »

    awesome game....one of the first Wii games we bought and i have 16 and 12 yr old girls. We love the old fashioned carnival games and the quests just keep on going in adventureland mode! Full Review »

    I think its a very fun game! Contary to the adult gamers the children will not be bored easily. Its a fun and exciting game, its like going to 6 Flags without the travel! Have Fun! Full Review »
